God Is My Co-Pirate: I am still shocked that you're volunteering for the Obama campaign. Am I right in thinking that it's not so much that you've changed, but that Romney, and the current GOP, are just that terrible?
Weaver95: quite simply, this sort of tactic is sheer desperation. Look, the Obama campaign has had us phone banking and canvassing doors since mid september. every day we narrow down the phone lists, screening out GOP voters and focusing on getting undecideds to switch votes to Obama and getting the Democratic voters to commit to voting on election day. that's a LOT of work but we're almost to the point where our call lists are around 90%-ish accurate and up to date. so we're not wasting time/effort phone blasting to people who aren't going to vote OR who are gonna vote Republican.Then along comes this mass txt phone blast from the Romney campaign. if they're sending text messages to people who aren't Republicans then that tells me they're working off VERY inaccurate voter lists. they haven't put in the time and effort to narrow down their voter rolls, organize people to get Republicans to the polls on election day. it's sloppy and they're paying the price for NOT building an effective campaign organization down on the ground where it matters. they needed to be doing that work over a month ago if they planned to be ready for election day/go time.
monoski: //Except that Biden BS, but I don't vote for VP's or I would have abstain this year as they are both dolts
Khanmots: Weaver95, I have been thinking more and more about getting involved with helping a campaign out; if I were to want to get involved the next election cycle, how should I go about doing so? Or... living in Texas should I just give it up as a lost cause until changing demographics start to even things out?

MyRandomName: GAT_00: IamKaiserSoze!!!: Hmmm, which party would be more inclined to do this. The one who's base is already motivated or the one who's getting desperate?Sorry Barry, you're goin down.Probably desperate people and it was RNC spam, so....The article doesn't state a source. Your link for it being RNC spam? Or is it pure conjecture like you always proffer?

somedude210: DamnYankees: As dumb as those tweets are, I'm not seeing the overt racism. Am I missing something?I don't think there was any, but I needed a way to make the headline come off as Republican so that was the easiest way/subby
Smashed Hat: Weaver95:I wonder if the GOP understands that being annoying isn't going to help them very much on election day...Actually I've been getting quite a bit of text spam from the Democrats and I don't remember giving out my new cell number on any websites. It's a little creepy.

Smashed Hat: Campaign ads spammed to your cell phone. I never knew the future would be so irritating.
