If we were leading in the polls right now by 10 or 20 points, I would be a little worried
You know damn well that the Repukes would slowly come from behind in the polls, pull this thing close to even by mid-October, and have all the momentum going into the final days of the campaign. Fuck that. I like the spot we're in right now because we haven't even begun to fight yet.
It's all about timing. We are going to win this thing, I guarantee you that, but there is no sense in making our final push to the finish line too early and taking a chance on sitting on a big lead for 2 months. The important thing now is to keep it close and not make any big mistakes. Then, what's going to happen is we'll eventually start pulling slowly ahead and they're never going to catch up. By the time we reach the finish line, the Repukes are going to be so far behind and gasping for oxygen because they'll have nothing left in a tank that's already half empty as we speak.
So stop worrying so much about another loss because that is just not going to happen. Instead of worrying to death, take a break from the computer once in a while, volunteer in your area, build some signs, or talk to people who need some convincing, and let Obama and Biden handle the rest.
