Once upon a time, you dressed so fine, threw the bums a dime, in your prime, didn't you?

You remember from September to the election in November of 2008, public schools were lobbying students for Obama?

We saw kindergartners singing "Mmm, mmmm, mmm, Barack Hussein Obama", and all the way up to the high school, students were being brainwashed about the coming messiah?

I think I mentioned this before, but my youngest (who was in her junior year) was even a little influenced by it.  For Christmas, one of her friends thought it would be funny to donate an Obama poster so she could put it up in her room to annoy her conservative mother.

A hearty har har it was.  

Not too long after the election and television was a 24/7 infomercial for Obama (remember those days??) disenchantment set in and I would find her sneering and talking all cynical under her breath at the television when he was on.    

I don't know where she'd pick up that habit from.   

[Ahem] Moving right along.

Anyhoo, the poster disappeared.

Over the last few months, she's been organizing her room and things to get ready for college and today when I got home, she was as proud as a peacock to show me where she put the poster.

A proud Mommy moment I thought was a good visual for the disenchantment meme picking up momentum.

You've all seen the economic news by now?   Unemployment is way up.  

The "economic recovery" (as predicted) was killed by the rising costs of having to pay for health insurance for people who sit home and watched cartoons while the rest of us were studying and working our tails off.    

Obama noted that in the last few months of 2009, businesses with fewer than 50 employees accounted for 60 percent of the job losses in the U.S.

It's killing small business owners.  And, way ahead of the predictions.

Forecasts on what this situation could potentially mean ranges from stalled recovery to the Second Great Depression.

What a difference a year makes.

This week, there's all kinds of speculation as to why momentum is growing behind the conviction that Obama lied about his religion.
Is it because he was 'born a Muslim'
That's sure part of it.    His name is another clue.    His paper trail indicates he claimed he was an Indonesian citizen - the worlds largest Muslim nation.  He's been pandering to Muslim terrorists from the get go - throwing our soldiers under the bus and releasing the Muslim terrorists they've captured.  He's made attempts at destabilizing and demoralizing our police forces and our CIA until it was clear our country was not quite ripe enough for the brainwashing.  This week, he used his platform to give momentum to erect a Muslim shrine feet from where radical Muslim terrorists left a hole and 3,000 dead. It simply confirmed what has been suspect all along.

Last week, he was a pathetic sight when he went to Florida for a photo op, swimming in the ocean to generate some tourism and trust after the drink was polluted with oil on his watch and nobody gave a crap.

There has to be pandemonium at the Kennedy School of Government.  

Remember this?:

You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, a lot like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy towards people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

Who is bitter now. 

George Bush is laughing all the way to the Rasmussens. 

People called, said beware doll, you're bound to fall, you thought they were all..kidding you.


Who knew.  There's one Messiah.   Obama didn't turn out to be it.

Love your proud mommy moment. Was it Mark Twain who said he was amazed at how much his father had learned as he got older? One picture is worth a thousand words.

Not a messiah. But a Muslim?

Oh, Carol, those Bob Dylan lyrics make me very sad because they bring back memories of the infamous sixties.
