...my phone is ringing OFF the hook!

In the last three weeks my phone has been ringing 5 or 6 times a day, with the campaigns calling.  It's mostly from the Left hand side too, given the questions.  I think they are in serious trouble.  Is anyone getting these calls, or are they burning up the heavily contested states?

Romney / Ryan were here a couple days ago they had to turn people away.  Somewhere between 6K & 12K   They had the same thing in other places since they announced Ryan as his VP candidate.

Joe Biden was here in my area yesterday, he got 'hundreds' of people. I can't find out how many 'hundreds', but they were at a NatGuard Armory, so I'm figuring 1 'hundreds'.

reminds me of the Kerry campaign through Baghdad.

"they" wanted service members to take a photo op having dinner with the candidate. State department slugs were chomping at the bit. the organizers barely made it down one hall in the embassy before their allocation was met. They walked through the entire embassy....then started offering incentives like tshirts and ball caps to service members in order to be seen with him.

I laughed, and asked if I could ask the candidate to mail a letter for me when he got back to the States. The hopeful aid said "sure, I'm sure we could accomodate that, who is the letter to?"

I responded, it is my application for graduation for my MBA.

Then they decided that maybe it wasn't such a good idea for me to be seen with their candidate.

I guess I didn't fit the profile that he had recently broadcast about the education level of the military.

I believe the term you're looking fr is...dick heads. And screw their 'image' of anyone. If they'd quit looking for photo ops to LOOK good, and do their jobs, we'd SEE them, AS good.

I guess my question for The One is, IF you're doing SO great and the people love you SO much...then whyTH are you ringing my house 5 or 8 times a day, looking for $$$ and support?
