Name Calling

130121innauguration_name_callling

President Obama’s re-election campaign didn’t defend his first term economic record. It called Romney names, like bullshitter, felonwife killer, and tax deadbeat.

But, with his inaugural speech the president has put the campaign behind him, and he hopes you have too. ..“For now decisions are upon us, and we cannot afford delay. We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate.”

Ohio Trick or Treat


Trick or treat cartoon. Couple answers door and say "how cute, you must be Romney and Obama."

Need an errand run for you in Ohio? Call a presidential candidate. Time puts it this way – “Ohio isn’t just ground zero in the Electoral College. It’s also an epicenter for one of the biggest ad binges in history. The campaigns have forked over $177 million to win Ohio, more than any other state, according to an NBC analysis.”

Flipping the Big Bird

It turns out  Big Bird is a Fat Cat.

Sesame Street has asked the Obama campaign to pull down an ad giving the Bird to Romney.

Debate

The president seemed to feel that debating was beneath him on Wednesday night. I guess it was.

The quote from above was related to Ryan Lizza by Patrick Gaspard in this New Yorker piece. You’ll have to read more than half the article to get to it. If you’re like me, you’d rather not, so go here to see it on Politico along with nine other of the president’s humble pronouncements.

Debate

Going into tonight’s debate, Obama is mired in troubles (I couldn’t cram in Fast and Furious, Afghan police killing American troops, or the coverup of the Benghazi attacks ), yet he leads in the polls, and Republicans are hammering Romney!

If you’ve got half an hour to blow, here’s an entertaining and angry speech by Pat Caddell, former pollster for Jimmy Carter.
