I got this email a couple of hours ago and I feel so “in the loop”:


Chris Matthews got one too and he’s so excited he can’t even stand up. If you see his producer yelling “hand check” during tonight’s Hardball show, you’ll know why.

Here’s Obama’s 2012 logo — yawn:


The re-election pitch will be this: “In four short years we’ve closed Gitmo, made clean energy abundant and affordable, slowed the rise of the oceans, stimulated the economy, chipped away at the debt, ended the wars, passed a health care bill that everybody loves and nobody needs waivers from, and we’ve brought peace to the Middle East!”

That’ll be the pitch anyway — hey, they bought it by the millions the first time around, why not try it again? These people are still eating it up:

Ad Daniel Foster pointed out at NRO, it’s interesting that the announcement video contains nothing from Obama himself.

    How much more partying would he do as a lame duck president?

    How much golfing and vacationing did George Bush do? While launching 2 wars, failing to protect America from terrorism (yes, 9/11 was on hsi watch), and destroying the economy?

    He set a record for Presidential vacations. Comments on Dougiepoohs blog? ZERO.

    OK America, gimmie a show of hands. Has anybody ever thrown up before?

    I’m not saying this ad makes me throw up, I’m saying the incumbent campaign is throwing up. Throwing up the same, tired old hope and change mantra. Its hope and change, hope and change all over again. This ad says that, after four years of the incumbent, we are still hoping for a positive change. People, keep the faith and continue to live on “maybe”. Maybe this time, maybe this time.

    Maybe, maybe, maybe while the nation circles the drain and life passes you by.

    You will get out of life what you put into it.

    I love the smell of desperation in the morning!

    That's as close to throwing in the towel as you can GET! Alice ( in MI btw Doug ) notes that "We have to DO this! We have to get 'involved', President Obama can't do this 'alone', he's got a JOB to do..?!/*

    WTF? So… basically he's going to throw his hat in the ring and if he can manage to get re-elected, well then great! If 'not', well then I'm sure FLOTUS has plenty of self-promotional plans for 'us'?

    I picture P' BO launching a mega/multi-media all encompassing network to stump the Social Justice Agenda 24/7 "to a broader and more 'receptive' glo…..bal audience". Perhaps even his own version of the internet. His post P' BO years are going to be awe….some!

    I would say that "desperation" refers to both the campaign ad and TheLiberalMedia's post.

    I've got it! All Bammie needs to do to 'win' in 2012 is is create… some sort of National Amnesia by where… I don't know, something in the water supply? He can claim to be a totally made-over Prez!

    Kind of like when they put out a sequel to Robo-cop? Or the Sixteen Trillion Dollar Man! ( Surely we'll be there by 'then'? ) Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-NUH-nah… We can make him stronger, faster, BETTER!

    Moochelle? Unpack honey!

  7. Marshall_Will on April 4th, 2011 2:39 pm


    Nothing else in the world smells like that!

    Obama Loses Nobel Peace Prize!

  9. nannykins on April 4th, 2011 3:22 pm

    At least the taxpayers weren't stiffed for lodging as HE OWNED the ranch where he vacationed. How much did we shell out for Zero and Moochelle's vacations??? And don't forget the plane that transported their dog to their island vacation. Dinner dates in Chicago and New York????

    Zero is one big ass failure!!!

    Hey, Mao, put moochie back in the suitcase, vacate the premises, and bury it in your own yard.

    It was Jamie Gorelick who set up the walls of separation between our intelligence agencies that prevented info from being coordinated to detect the 9-11-01 terrorist attacks.
    It was Chris Dodd, Barney Frank and Franklin Raines who forced banks into the situation that created the housing bubble that, in addition to the constant drumbeat from the msm, created the recession you blame on Bush.
    All these people have D`s beside their names and did their deeds while der Schlickmeister was leaning way back in his WH chair, before I ever heard of GWBush !

    I`ve said it before, I`ll say it again, "I Don`t Believe the Liberal Media" !! They LIE !!

    For all that might be said was bad about GWBush, he was and still is "From the Toes UP Better Than Obummer" !!

  12. SignPainterGuy on April 4th, 2011 6:17 pm

    I don`t believe TheLiberalMedia or The LIBERAL MEDIA !!

  13. TheLiberalMedia on April 4th, 2011 7:04 pm

    SognPainterGuy drinking the Kool Aid like a good right winger – f*** the truth, right my brother?!

  15. SignPainterGuy on April 4th, 2011 7:21 pm

    Well, okay, OK. I believe that much……;-)

  16. SignPainterGuy on April 4th, 2011 7:30 pm

    I live near a paper mill and believe me, it stinks to high heaven sometimes, but "desperation" smells worse !

    "Chris Matthews got one too and he’s so excited he can’t even stand up. If you see his producer yelling “hand check” during tonight’s Hardball show, you’ll know why."

    He'll be spitting up a storm on tonight's Spitball show.

    We can just refer to TheLiberalMedia (Nick?) as the p!ssboy.

    Oh, p!ssboy !

    Proposed Obama Campaign Slogans:

    "Four More Years! And Pay No Attention To That Man Behind The Curtain."

    "President Obama: Who Are You Gonna Believe? Me Or Your Lying Eyes & Ears?"

    "Obama, 'Present' More Than Ever."

    "Reelect Obama: So He Can Really Give You That Free Pony He Promised in 2008."
