    I'll support him if he wants to make a serious push in Georgia, but....it's Georgia. He'll have to get more white votes and...it's Georgia.

    Tuesday is Primary Day in Indiana, North Carolina, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
    -------------
    In Indiana, Democrats win no matter which candidate wins the primary. If Lugar wins, then that is one less Tea Party candidate in the Senate. If Lugar loses, then Republicans will lose the seat.

    In North Carolina, polling has been quiet, or I missed them entirely. I think NC voters will pass that referendum.

    In Wisconsin, this is the most crucial race in the nation this year, second only to the general election. This is a test bed for strategies to be taken to the national level this fall.

    Obama is one more sick and demented soul. He will not do good for America. He has proven this many times over. IMPEACH HIM NOW.

    This about all this clueless president is good at. Campaigning and more campaigning and more campaigning. I am just waiting and waiting and waiting for the day when HE starts dedicating time to the real issues faced by our country (the ECONOMY, stupid; employment, stupid, etc., etc., etc., stupid.)

    Obama has done little more than "campaign" for the last 4 years. Meanwhile, the Country has suffered immeasurably under his failed policies. Four and the door for Bozo!
