    Ah, plastic patriotism to counter the plastic patriotism Republicans are betting the farm on using as a wedgeie issue.

    You reap what you sow, warmongers.

    Interesting that the pictures he shows are of him in the company of older, white people…

    This is a good bio piece nonetheless, but here’s the main problem: a Presidential Candidate shouldn’t have to feel the need to introduce himself the way he did in this ad. A bio piece like this should be reserved for someone running for Congress or statewide office, not President.

    That’s why I wear a flag lapel pin, so I don’t have to verbally define myself as a Patriot.

    Its not about patriotism; it is about him. An excellent intoduction. An excellent demonstration of his communication skills and his ability to connect to Americans.

    Hey, I think this guy is the worst candidate the dims have offered up since Carter ’80, but don’t kid yourself; this is a very good ad…

    WELL… in that case.. I guess we should go ahead and call it …. President Obama it is!

    Perhaps are already “P.O.’d” ” President Obama’d”…. and when he put us in a Marxist Box –
    we will be is a PO BOX!…

    And then we will all be PO FOLKS!

    Aside from the smear about Obama, it’s the GOP that repeatedly wraps itself in the flag. Four years ago, we had a guy who clearly went AWOL from his Air National Guard unit questioning the patriotism of a decorated veteran (whose awards were re-ratified by the Navy, despite the awful and false smears against him). And we had Saxby who dodged the military by claiming bad knees — those knees didn’t stop him playing football — questioning the patriotism of a hero who lost three limbs in Vietnam. I would think the GOPers would be too ashamed to go that direction again. Then again, nothing shames some folks.

    Indeed, jsm, I find the similiarity to the 1970’s to be frightening…. the country seeking to extricate itself from a prolonged war unrelated to national security interests, the conclusion of a disasterous presidency, and fuel cost increases rocking the economy.

    We’re facing stagflation into the next decade if history repeats itself.

  9. MountainThinker says:

    Yeah I made the Carter/Ford ’76 comparison on another post, but the fact is Carter in ’76 looked like fresh air, much like Obama. And just like with Carter by ’80, Obama in ’12 will have revealed that fresh air to be nicely scented poisonous vapor that chokes this country nearly to its death!
