The crackup I thought I was seeing in the Obama campaign didn’t happen. I underestimated the ability of the mainstream media to cover for Obama’s weaknesses. We may all have underestimated the effectiveness of ACORN’s vote-fraud machine.
I’m glad we’ve elected a black man president; I’m sorry it’s one who looks quite so much like a sort of latter-day Manchurian Candidate programmed by his hard-left associates to hate his own country.
I hope we don’t all come to regret this day horribly. We can only hope that Obama is a better man than his influences.

Kid, don't whine. We survived Nixon, and we will survive him.

Okay, so what is it you're trying to say exactly?

Sane version: "I underestimated the intelligence of the American people – not an easy thing to do – and assumed they'd again fall for fearmongering, racism and jingoism."

Eric, being marginally good with programming does not make you an authority on anything else.
This guy is a UNIX/Linux nut who thinks he's an intellectual power house. He once aruged that black people were genetically predisposed to beinging less intelligent than whites. No o

Eric Raymond? Isn't that the bad guy from "Jem and the Holograms"?
Doesn't he have records to make and a band to promote?

Every talking point taken from FOX News.
Hey Eric, instead of parroting the right-wing propaganda exactly as it's been fed to you, why don't you spend that time looking some things up for yourself? What's the matter, too many big words on Google?

Oh wait, that was Bush.

Someone doesn't know the difference between registering to vote and voting. I'd explain the rest, but what's the point?

Voter fraud? I believe you're thinking of Diebold, whose CEO stated in writing before the 2004 election that he was going to "deliver a victory" for Bush. ACORN never committed any fraud.
Obama's smart enough to think for himself, and he's no liberal, unfortunately. He opposes gay marriage and single-payer health care, and has appointed someone to the Supreme Court who has a voting record of siding 98.2% of the time with the conservatives in her district.

It must tell you something that President Obama won the electoral and the popular vote by wide margins, Eric.
This is pathetic. You're not even trying.
