Seriously? What makes you think I'd support that?

I don't think it's any secret that I'm an Obama fan.  I don't think it's any secret that I support the healthcare reform bill.  

So, why, oh why, would Citizens United, that conservative, hypocritical organization that battled to overturn campaign fundraising limits, think that I would support them in their latest quest to repeal the healthcare reform bill by suing the Obama administration in an attempt to get in front of the Supreme Court again?

I got a fund raising phone call from Citizens United and Dick Morris and by the end of it, I was laughing at the poor woman.  It was typical offensive Republican speak (with a little Dick Morris book selling tangent), asking me if I agreed with Obama's efforts to socialize healthcare, destroy the military and other imagined horrors.  I told the woman that, while her scripted question was offensive, pejorative and ridiculous, I wholeheartedly agreed with Obama's efforts thus far.

I must be on some list. It must be the same list that resulted in my invitation to the McCain rally in Grand Junction just prior to the 2008 election.  I have no idea how I would have ended up on such a list.

Either that or they're so misinformed as to think that everyone who figures out how to afford to live in Aspen must be a die-hard Republican who supports their twisted agenda.

My parents get these slanted "surveys" all the time from the Republicans. It's insulting that they don't think their members have any education in rhetoric.

I often fill them out if they're lying around and tell them how demeaning these loaded questions are. I always say I strongly agree with say the Socialist Obama agenda, etc.

Guess you get a good look at what's going on.

Maybe someone is trying to send you a message.... Or just out to get your goat? Oh, looks like they did that.
