The goal of the march was to drum up lots and lots of support for the inalienable right of Big Bird etc. to receive federal subsidies so they don’t have to compete with free market entertainers like the Emmy-award winning Spongebob Squarepants.
There are some oddly cheerful muppets at this table. Were they just jealous of the over-paid dork in the feather suit? Or did some of our under-appreciated friends at PBS have secret deals cooking under the table in case Romney won? We’ll be watching the tabloids to see who might be popping up at free market stations like Nickelodeon and Disney after Romney carries out his promise to cut funding to PBS.

“First, let me assure you that your feelings are perfectly normal. Many American families across the country are facing the same dilemma—how to get along with someone they technically love, but can’t actually stand at the moment. Thousands of worried mothers are wondering if their glamorous holiday tables will become impromptu boxing rings at the mere mention of Romney or Obama.”

Author’s bio: “Political Therapy is an advice column like no other. At least, I hope so, because I make up all of the column’s questions to fit whatever topic I want to pontificate about. I also have zero official advice credentials, but, as my loving family can attest, I DO have years of experience giving unwanted advice. So please read and, hopefully, enjoy. Because the world has been waiting for my opinion.”
On the final full day of campaigning in the 2012 race for the White House, President Obama gave speech in Madison, Wisconsin that included this:
“We tried our ideas. They worked. The economy grew. We created jobs. Deficits went down.”
Seriously? Does ANYONE with two brain cells to rub together NOT SEE the $6 TRILLION in additional national debt and the worst unemployment and slowest economic recovery since the Great Depression?
Of course not. Rush Limbaugh said about this,
“Nobody in this country thinks right now the economy’s working. That’s not why Obama’s supporters support him. … They support him:
- A. because he’s a Democrat;
- B. because he’s a liberal;
- C. because they hate conservatives;
- D. because they hate Republicans;
- E. because they think everybody else owes them the something.
But they don’t support Obama because they think his stuff is working.”
I’ve been following polls for a long time. Every so often, I come across one that shows about 3/4 of Americans on one side and about 1/4 on the other. E.g., belief in God, love for America, respect for the military, support for abortion without limits. I’ve seen polls that break down like this on each of these issues.
IMHO, that 1/4 represents Obama’s true supporters. They’re not enough to win him a second term if we have a HONEST election.
PLEASE KEEP PRAYING! We’ve got the hearts and minds and votes of We the People on our side; we need those votes counted as they were cast.

There is an old saying in stock car racing: ‘When the green flag drops,the bullshit stops.’ We are finally at that point after four long,agonizing years while we stood by helplessly as this regime wrought great pain and misery in furtherance of their socialist utopian ideology.We have had our fill and more than our fill of polls,pundits,experts of every stripe offering up their opinions which taken in toto amount to exactly…bupkus.There is no doubt the media always wants a horse race to improve their ratings.The presstitutes have done yeoman work propping up Pharaobama and producing weighted polls to make him look the favorite.
There is no doubt there is a large part of the country intent on committing national suicide as long as someone else is doing the suffering.Obama took his base of union thugs and welfare parasites and added a lot of white guilters and impressionable college kids to his side thanks in large part to the criminal negligence of the corrupt scribes who took care to see that no one would learn who and what he really was until after it was too late.A lot of those who were duped have learned the hard way he was pulling the biggest sham in electoral memory.Many of those will try to rectify their mistake by voting for an American this time.They may just be too embarrassed to tell pollsters they won’t repeat their mistake.
Of late,we’ve seen political rallies for Obummer and Biteme attended by hundreds or a few thousand while Romney and Ryan draw 25-45,000 in the cold and rain.That alone should be an indication of where the enthusiasm lies this year.My only concern is Romney garnering enough votes to negate the rampant fraud we’ve already seen evidence of.The time for talk is over.It’s time to exercise the one chance we have every four years to make a real difference.In the words of George W. Bush,we will not tire,we will not falter and we will not fail.Anything less is unthinkable.
When your opening act is an accused rapist and molester of women, a man who lied to a grand jury and was convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice, and then you climb on stage as President of the United States and people walk out halfway through your speech three days before the vote for your reelection, that’s not good. But that’s what happened yesterday to Barack Obama in Virginia.
