Riiiiiight. They haven't been bad for someone who is a socialist I'm sure. That isn't most of the country though, and especially not the moderates that both of the two parties will be campaigning for.
If a moderate swung over to vote for Obama mainly because of Iraq how do you think he's feeling right now?
How about one that voted for him because the Republicans were spending money like crazy?
How about one who voted for him because of the bailouts?
Obama and the democrats picked up many votes last time around merely because they weren't republicans. That probably isn't going to be true next time. Personally, I wouldn't vote for either, but most of the country is of the mindset that you have to vote for one or the other so pick the one that isn't as bad.
