    Obama’s “base” is the biggest collection of useful idiots ever assembled, so obviously Team Obama could not be worried less about them. They’re either too young to have a clue, too old to be sentient, too wealthy to be sentient, too dependent on public money handouts to be sentient, or they’re supporting Obama solely because of the color of his skin, which isn’t likely to change anytime soon. Obama literally could take a crap on his “base” and next November they’d still vote for him by a 100-0 margin.
