Some funny material came out of the Presidential elections. But I don’t let the laughter distract me from the bigger picture. Barack Obama was trying a little too hard to distract us from the very real failures that have defined his own tenure. Not funny.
As I write this, the hours tick inexorably toward the final Presidential debate of the 2012 electoral season. Someone tell me how it turns out. I’m tired of these debate dog and pony shows.
Nice costumes, ladies. Barack blames it on the girl. And: the ever-changing Benghazi bologna. All this—plus—mom jeans! Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
I wasn’t expecting much Tuesday night. I knew President Barack Obama would be declared a winner by the effete elite if he managed to show up and not vomit on himself. Both candidates behaved like slightly less-creepy versions of Joe Biden from last week; although Obama appears to have missed a few days of rehearsal.
Asked by debate moderator Martha Raddatz to explain the double- and even triple-talk about the circumstances surrounding the murders in Benghazi, Libya, Vice President Joe Biden didn’t even blink as he proclaimed himself and Barack Obama merely misinformed bystanders.
Steph and Debbie take two for the team. Another weird (and racist) moment in the Democrats’ War on Women. And Crazy Joe sweats to the oldies! All this, plus, “lady parts!” Presented in 1080 hi-def, for FREE! It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
Mitt Romney never said he wants to kill, maim, fricassee or deep-fat fry Big Bird. In fact, quite the opposite is true. But the Democratic panic over Romney’s nefarious plans for the “Sesame Street” gang is about winning an election, not telling the truth.
Just about 36 hours after Governor Mitt Romney debated President Barack Obama, the Department of Labor released the September jobs report. To say Obama needed a win after face-planting in Denver is an understatement. The boys at the Bureau of Labor Statistics delivered for their boss.
Um…THAT did NOT go well. Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s the Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
As you read my musings today, keep in mind my deadline was Wednesday morning. So, I’ll guess instead. After all, if I’m miles off the mark, I can just do what Obama does and claim my perspective has “evolved.”
