We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Sorry but I have my doubts, the American people of 1972 are very different from the American people of 2013 or should I say American consumers of 2013. Some of the media may ask hard questions but doubtful. Nothing short of a nuke attack on the US would probably cause any reexamination of Obama and then they would hope its a Tea party member.
Of course I hope and pray I am wrong and that the American people have not become the sheep Tocqueville wrote about them becoming.
