Aaaaaand, they're off and running! Barack Hussein Obama kicked off his 2012 campaign this weekend in less than grand style. The half-black president offered up half-baked promises to finish the job he says is half done...to an auditorium which was onlf half-full. Which is why we're going to go out on a limb and guess that those who did show up are...halfwits.
Throwing positive rhetoric like "Hope" and "Change" to the wind, Obama's campaign strategy seems to be going directly from blaming Bush for his first four dismal years, to blaming Romney for what might happen (but wouldn't) in the next four years.
Specifically, he says that Romney wants to "turn back the clock" on all of the great progress that Obama has made so far, to which we say "Amen!" Because Obama's agenda is a doomsday clock for this nation, and it's ticking away like an amphetamine-crazed drummer playing "Wipe Out" (which, incidentally, will replace "Hail to the Chief" if Obama wins a second term).
Obama also did his best to sell his already-laughable new slogan "Forward," working it into his speech repeatedly...while attendees (or perhaps employees?) in the conspicuously sparse crowd waved preprinted signs proclaiming "Forward" and "Not Back."
Presumably, that would be "not back" to low gas prices and a coherent energy policy. Not back to people actually finding jobs. Not back to really having hope. Not back to constitutionality. Not back to supporting our allies, and demanding respect from our enemies.
Not back to America being the greatest nation on Earth.
