If I'm not mistaken, didn't Brent Ives run unopposed?

un·op·posed  (n-pzd)

adj.

Not challenged by another: The candidate was unopposed in the campaign.

I'm not wild about Obama for 4 more years, by any stretch of the imagination, but I thought announcing him so soon was strange, being that things were still so close in the undetermined states.

do you honestly believe the last 4 have been better and that the next 4 will be anything other than a cluster

And I don't know that I'd call it for Obama quite yet, when it's still pretty close.

Maybe they wrote "opposed" because that was wishful thinking for all good Traq members? So then tomorrow they will wake up from their dream and correct the typo and then write a letter praising anti ellis lawsuiter?

Par for the course around here.

Tracy Press,

Obama again for another four years. Looks like we will have to wait another four years to get anything done! Sad state of affairs! I guess we will get another four years of loosing more privacy, paying more taxing, and just maybe allowing another 1,000,000 illegals to flood our country and be allowed to be citizens even though they broke the law to begin with. What a great president! The downward spiral continues!

Bush jr, was far more damaging to privacy. We still pay historic low income taxes.

Spike...taxes...you ain't seen nothin' yet.

Wait until 1/1/13...obama care takes it toll.

Oh yes, not a tax, a fee.

To avoid fee, full time employment subject considered at 30 hrs will reduce employee hours to 20 hrs. What does that do for you? Employees will have to work 2 different jobs to make ends meet.
