Let me get this straight...

Doesn't every candidate for national office offer "stuff" to those they want to win over before the vote?

What is a "Platform" but a collection of wishes and desires gleemed to build a base from those who support the candidate?

But since Barack Obama dares to turn his head away, slightly, I might add, from those self-proclaimed captians of coapitalism he is doing something dastardly and dishonest and, number one with a bullet, Un-American, and so he is villified and pilloried in the eyes of Wall Street and K Street and their toadies in the national media.

4. All his millions cannot cure foot in mouth disease

I bet the republicans wish they had nominated Gin-grinch instead, still would have lost though but not as embarassingly.

8. Seems to me the "conservatives" have lost their conservative glow, especially when it comes to

 

spending tax dollars on frivolous and unnecessary war toys. This year we need a plane that does this many times the speed of sound, next year we need yet an improved version. What happened to the days of the B-52 that served the military for decades without even a whimper?

Seems like the automotive mindset has infected the military and other realms cuz each and every year the car you buy that has been touted as the most sophisticated and efficient vehicle on the market will be replaced by a totally redesigned, totally new one. Each and every year.

Every car manufacturer states the same thing about their cars and in doing so admitting that what they hailed as the greatest thing since sliced bread the year before was just a fluke, nevermind that, this is the one I promise.

6. Seems to me that Mitt is having more than the usual amount of difficulty absorbing his loss...

And accusing Obama of giving "stuff" to various groups in exchange for their vote is just plain scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Mitt is the dastardly and dishonest one.
