Election Fatigue

And with the amount of money being thrown at this election, it is just going to get worse. Sigh.

    I think cognitive dissonance in particular is going to play a huge part in the upcoming election. I am actually looking forward to the Obama/Romney debates because I want to see if Romney can create a logical argument against Obama that doesn’t come back to bite him. And all this attention being given to people who either have no experience in politics or are blatantly partisan is ridiculous. Media is getting to the point where, to save money, they will give air time to any hack that can yell at a camera, and call it journalism. All this does is continue to promote partisanship and create more stress and “election fatigue” for the unfortunate consumers who can’t get a straight answer from anyone anymore. Thankfully, we still have NPR, but even that may be dying out if austerity-minded conservatives have their way with it.

    This hits it on the head. I am so there! Could I ask them to just send the money to me directly and I will vote for the one who sends the most? Isn’t that what is really happening?

    Great idea, PapaJ. Turn the election into economic stimulus!

    Its at times like these I’m grateful to not be living in a swing state. Its bad enough just dealing with the Texas nutcase politics without having to deal with endless political advertising and SuperPAC attack ads. I’m with PapaJ, send me $100 and I promise not to vote for Obama. They don’t have to know a vote for Obama is pretty much useless in Texas.

    send me $100 and I’ll say I voted for Romney. A vote for a republican in MD is just as useless.

    patriotsgt, the way republicans are acting in congress these days a vote for them is pretty much useless in any state.

    @ Dave tn don’t underestimate the gullibility of the conservative base, or their determination to unseat Obama. No matter what anybody says, I think it’s going to be a close race overall.

    It is going to be an extremely close race, unfortunately, with a lot of people holding their noses while they vote.
