"Romnesia"? What Happened to "Hope" and "Change"?

Plumbing new depths yesterday at a Virginia rally, Obama accused Romney of "'Romnesia' for changing positions and trying to pivot to the political center" (http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/decision2012/obama-fires-up-crowd-in-virginia-with-romnesia-speech/2012/10/19/ddde9560-1a13-11e2-aa6f-3b636fecb829_story.html?hpid=z2). My guess is that this latest effort at maligning Romney will meet with all of the success of Obama's Big Bird campaign stratagem.

But heck, as long as we're on the topic of amnesia, whatever happened to:

  • "Hope"?
  • "Change"?
  • Bipartisanship?
  • The pledge to distance lobbyists from the Oval Office?
In case you missed it, Anita (Mao is one of "my favorite political philosphers") Dunn, former senior Obama adviser, is once again walking beside Obama (http://www.nytimes.com/imagepages/2012/10/20/Lobby.html) and actively assisting in his reelection effort. This renewed campaign activity is being provided, notwithstanding the fact that "She and her colleagues at SKDKnickerbocker, a communications firm, have built a growing list of blue-chip companies — food manufacturers, a military contractor, the New York Stock Exchange and the Canadian company developing the Keystone XL pipeline — willing to pay handsomely for help in winning over federal regulators or landing government contracts" (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/20/us/politics/anita-dunn-both-insider-and-outsider-in-obama-camp.html?pagewanted=all).

Who's that in the picture also walking beside Obama? Why that's David Plouffe, who "accepted a $100,000 speaking fee in 2010 from an affiliate of a company doing business with Iran’s government" (http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/obama-associate-got-100000-fee-from-affiliate-of-firm-doing-business-with-iran/2012/08/05/5e6888a2-dda2-11e1-8e43-4a3c4375504a_story.html).

Nauseating.

  1. Ha, ha, ha, ha.
    I just visited one of my favorite health/nutrition forums and found the following:
    "My kids are watching a movie on netflix called "animals united" There is a lion character who is vegetarian "so that all of the animals on the savannah can live peacefully together"
    Well, if you raise kids this way, don't be surprise that they vote for "Hope, unity, change" and other demagogues/charlatans.
    Ha, ha, ha (sorry can't stop)
