Republicans can’t rely on anti-Obama sentiment alone.
Two recent events brought me to seriously doubt if personal involvement in politics is worth the Mount Everest of laundry that accumulates while I attempt to “change the nation,” by campaigning, making phone calls, and pounding the pavement for the latest “real deal.”
