Seriously? Obama out polls Graham and DeMint
in SC?

If 95 percent of African American voters turned out to vote in the next election, Demint could be defeated. I'll never forgive him after wishing he had been the one to heckle the president, and comparing healthcare reform to Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo. I look forward to seeing the Waterloo sunset of Demint's political career.

Well with all the stores these days that will accept foreign coins to buy a cup of coffee or something is accepted. I have paid for things with money from honduras, Hungary, Mexico. If it looks like American money, they will accept it.

You guys are obviously misreading the poll. Obama's unfavorables are higher than his favorables, whereas Grahm and Demint's are just the opposite. But their favorables and unfavorables are both lower than Obama's. Why? Because Obama has more name recognition than them even in South Carolina.

I hope I straightened it out for all of you.
