Don’t think thats true. He wasn’t thrilled with MCCain but said he would probably vote for him because of Palin....indicating that he likes Palin.

Link cites why its rumored that he supported Obama.

Thanks for posting that! I’m glad he addressed it too.

This statement;
“”I’ve been a lifetime Democrat, and I’m re-registering this year as an independent,” he said. “It’s strictly [because] my party, that I’ve been affiliated with all these years, doesn’t stand for anything that I stand for anymore. They’ve lost any sensibility that they had, and they’ve allowed all the kooks in, so I’m going independent.”

is the statement of a lot of Democrats (not liberals and certainly not socialist/communist. most would rather work for .50 than take a $1 from the government) I know. Especially in the south and midwest area. The Republicans for a long time were seen as the big wigs up top (much as they are perceived today) and the Democrats were for the ‘working man’. FDR, in his misguided policies really did endear him to the farmers and factory workers who were struggling the most. I see some of this same mentality today with Republicans wanting to solve the problem long term, which is necessary and no one wants a longer depression, but doesn’t do much when your kid is risking losing their home. FDR did things that was felt immediately and it had reached the point of there not being anymore time to work on long term goals when you are hungry. For that, many were grateful and voted on that gratitude passing the praise for Democrats on down to their children.

So, I feel better about Toby and thanks again for posting.

Reposting MGUNZ link because I think a lot of us were mislead by the press on Toby. I stand corrected on him.
