Outside the Asylum
Mormonism doesn’t work for me. But here’s the really cool part: I don’t spend time thinking about LDS doctrine, nor do I have to. Mormons are welcome to believe whatever the heck they want; the last time I checked, that’s the American (not to mention Constitutional) way.
As last week drew to a close, a new viral ad hit the Web. In it, a young woman named Lena Durham — otherwise noteworthy for acting in, writing, directing and producing some witless, juvenile shlock named “Girls” for HBO — describes in sexual undertones voting for Barack Obama.
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.
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.
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.
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.”
Barack Obama is going to be the first President since Herbert Hoover to lose an election via what amounts to a nullification vote. Millions of Americans who lack confidence in Romney will vote for him anyway, simply because he isn’t Obama.
