    I'm in a place where I can't see what is posted here. for future, can people who are posting videos or whatever, also create a link to what you're posting so those of us who can't read it off of Blueoregon.com can find it elsewhere? Thanks.

    btw, really appreciate all the posts people, thanks.

    and, being a dodo, or part dodo, I just clicked on the link and found what I was looking for. But in the past, there have been times that I've been clueless (I'm behind a firewall...) as to what's being posted...

    If you can't see it on BlueOregon, you won't be able to see it on YouTube, either.

    I am not Voting for Ted again. He has done nothing for the state. All that Video showed was a bunch of goverment employees worrying about their Pers Pension. Oregon can not afford the goverment Ted wants us to have. I will sit this one out.

    TheT, you obviously care enough to have an opinion. You should care enough not to be part of the problem. And by the way, if you think Ted has done nothing for this state you're not doing your homework.

    I'm confused as to how, exactly, a bunch of public employees and high profile Democrats cheering for the Gov illustrates "Why Oregonians are Voting for Ted," like the title claims.

    If Ted wins the election, it's only because the average person doesn't know that the guy has been MIA from every regular legislative session that has occurred under his watch.

    Hey look, everybody! Trolls! Meaningless, idiotic criticism. (And yes, smart intelligent discourse would be welcome...)

    But as long as its time for trolls... let's all make another donation to Ted!

    I wasn't trying to be mean...after reading the title, I was expecting an ad or something with a long list of the Gov's accomplishments. If the title was "Dems fired up," that would make sense.

    actually, i'm not even worried about it...I'm posting on a completely off-topic and technical issue. Kari - why are the number of comments not updating on the home page? From the home page, a post will say that there's 2 comments (like this post) and there's actually more than that...kind of difficult to keep up on discussions when the home page doesn't update.

    Anyway, this was off-topic, so I won't be offended if it gets deleted...just wondered if there was a reason and if it could be fixed...or if it even matters.

    I'm a D and a state worker on PERS. I shook K's hand yesterday and thanked him for dealing with PERS.

    The Gov is a lot shorter in person ;)

    I've shared this video with a lot of folk, because it shows Kulongoski's support for all Oregonians, including the 10 percent of us who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (the DPO GLBT Caucus banner is featured in the first 10 seconds), alongside a lot of hard-working union folks.

    I know most Republicans couldn't care less about LGBT folk, or public employees, or union folk, or poor folk, or black, brown, red, or yellow folk, or teachers, or folks who've lost their jobs, or young women who've gotten pregnant, or students and parents worried about paying for college, or old folks worried about their pensions, or working people wondering when their boss will outsource their job and kick 'em to the curb, or folks struggling with Parkinson's and other nerve diseases. The Republican Party and its cronies and flacks have made all this very clear in recent years.

    But, I'm not too cynical to believe that some politicians do give a damn about real people, who live on streets and roads, not hills by Lincoln High, or fake "farms" down the Valley. And I believe Ted is one of them. He's not flashy, and I don't care. He's getting the job done - and done well - for all of us people who are just trying to have a decent life.

    Thanks, Ted, for bringing Google to The Dalles, and 100,000 new jobs to Oregon. Thanks for improving our schools. And, thanks for giving a damn about all of us.

    Are you kiddin'? I'm a proud member of the Republican party, and I've just gotta say - if you can't buck up, you should just roll over and die. There ain't no room in this country for losers and whiners. It's a dog-eat-dog world out there, and China is going to kill us all unless we can show that we can fight to the death at home.

    Leo:

    Were you a Democratic mole all along, or did sexual orientation prove more important than political philosophy?

    Were you just pretending to be a Republican all those years you served the R's in various ways?

    They say the most fervent teatotallers were always the biggest drunks before they quit drinking.

    My Bad: I was thinking of Lee Coleman, not Leo Schuman.

    I apologize to you Leo...I saw your name and mistook you for Lee Coleman...He is the lifelong Republican who recently joined the Democratic Party to run for House District 26.
