Obama Falls Flat in Madison

Dear Barack Obama:

The "I'll be with you no matter what" line falls flat in Wisconsin . Plus, we really don't need to hear about how you reached out to McCain voters.

Love, Rebecca

P.S. Stop trashing people for being cynical and disaffected when these attitudes are directly related to your administration’s pursuit of policies t hat keep your Wall St., defense contractor and education privatizing backers happy, while many of those who supported you four years ago suffer the ill effects of those interests being catered to. It is actually the height of cynicism to suggest that a vote for or against you is a vote for or against "change." Open your eyes. Change comes in a wide variety of packages and the people of Wisconsin are waking up to that fact.
