hey obama

another parasite that's done nothing but live off of others overseeing the productive?
the irony is not lost on me.

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul

Government as per the Constitution and the Bill Of Rights is a

distant memory for older folks and, obviously, younger folks haven't a clue as to what that might entail, overall. How bad is it? The Constitution mandates for free and fair elections and that doesn't happen. Not even close. The public conscience cares not for freedom, but for a free cookie jar, instead, and that's what elections have become. Gimmee elections. "I got $200 and a cell phone from Obomba." Or, "Mitt's gonna give me a job. He said so." Pathetic.

Get this everybody. Vote for me and you'll be able to go to the nearest mansion and move in, for free. You'll be able to pick any vehicle, boat, plane or train, and go to wherever your little heart desires, for free. If you so choose, you can even operate your choice of transportation. You will have anything you want, for free. Food, clothing, spas, golf clubs and golf balls, play anywhere, even Augusta National, or, at Pebble Beach. Hell, just move into one of those razzle, dazzle abodes which adorns the golf course and enjoy that pristine Pacific Ocean horizon, everyday for as long as you want, for free. When that becomes a bore, you and your biker babe can choose to jump on a Harley, ride it to Sturgis, partake of all that is offered, there, and, if you so choose, you can have a bar and restaurant there for the purpose of treating your new found friends at the annual Sturgis, motorcycle gala, for free. Yes, vote for me, and I assure you, you can have it all. Afterall, who's gonna stop us? The President of the U.S. has the power of the pen, an army of body guards who relish their job security and an entire military of millions and millions of extremely well armed soldiers and sailors who are at his beckoning command. Piece of cake. So, what ya gonna vote for? Hamburger or caviar? A cell phone or a phone company. A job or no job with the world in the palm of your hand. Vote for me, because there's more than change you can believe in. You've got the whole damn bank at your disposal. I guarantee it.

Remember, for 2012, "write in" KW for President.

Oh, I almost forgot. If you cast a vote for me, and I win, a crisp, new one million dollar bill will be for the gettin' when you present your voter printout to the U.S. Sec. of the Treasury, my good buddy, Pal Fenster. Please allow for two weeks delivery time after the Secretary's receipt of your notification. Bet your bottom dollar, we don't deal in $200 chicken feed here.

This is one of those 'careful what you ask for' messages.

Politicians should learn less is more

I might actually vote for Obama if he eliminated departments rather than creating new ones.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

Secretary of Corporatism?

Or howabout Secretary of Fascism?

It is the exact type of 'socialism' that we dread, but to call it socialism would make the lefties super-confused. does socialism mean 'free goods and services to the many' or does it mean 'govt control of the means of production"?

Revolving door politics. He wants to make a position to hook-up one of his donors.

Better idea.

He should appoint a Secretary of "Minding Our Own Damn Business" and just leave the market the hell alone.

Make sure they appoint a

Make sure they appoint a grossly obese person... One big enough to sit on the president and Congress.

I guarantee that even after

I guarantee that even after this, the brainless progressive state-worshipers will complain that there is not enough regulation in the economy and we have to abandon laissez-faire capitalism.

President Obama needs to appoint

Does the sitting, idiot POTUS not know what his Commerce Secretary's responsibilities are? Give me a frigging break!

Mr. Obama is WRONG on his prediction...

That "war” already DID break out within the Republican Party.

Here's an example...

I am a registered REPUBLICAN who voted for a LIBERTARIAN for president.

I don't THINK I'm the only one.

Ha ha ha!

How about a new war, too: A war on joblessness. That should be just about as effective.

More government. More! Moar!!!
