So all Democrats are not ganging up on Romney like an earlier story said! The fact is a bunch of Democrat Party primaries saw over 40 percent of the Democrat electorate vote for anyone but President Obama. It appears his base is not happy!

Now if all these folks will call their friends and family in Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Florida and other states and ask them to vote for Mitt Romney it will be a landslide!

Even California is experiencing a shift in acceptance of the Obama tax and spend economic policy. Only one of the past 8 or 9 tax increasing propositions has passed and disgust with High Speed Rail funding and another 16 billion dollar deficit this year have led to discontent in the Democrat party.

Past leading Democrats are even standing against Obama's policies and are even predicting his defeat!

Obama 45% Romney 47%(todays Rasmussen poll). In September of 1980 Jimmy Carter was polling 7 points ahead of Reagan all the way up to election eve. We know what happened to that incompetent Commander in Chief. The Obama campaign is echoing this same demise.

Standing with Romney will get America working and Obama excuses gone!

The county is a big poultry producer, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has accused several chicken and turkey farmers in the area of polluting water that will eventually find its way into Chesapeake Bay. In the rest of the state, coal is king and the EPA is seen as committing regicide.

in other news...Black lung is coming back with a vengeance because of relaxed or ignored epa standards.

It's truly sad that these people have been fooled into believing the protectors of their very lives are the enemy, while the Bob Murray's of the world get their pictures taken with mittens for a few million.
