I’m B.O., and I Approve This Message

So I was driving through Virginia yesterday (Wait – what are you doing in Virginia?  I’m on vacation) when I heard a Barack Obama ad.  Curious, since we don’t get these things in California, I turned up the volume.

It was shameless.

In it, an elderly couple were giggling about grandchildren when an announcer came on the radio, saying the Ryan/Romney plan would “essentially end Medicare.”  Get it?  Essentially.  You can put that one little qualifier in front of everything and make the absurd statement that follows true!

How do we know these evil Republicans will essentially end Medicare?  Because, the announcer intoned, the non-partisan AARP has said so.  At this point, my sister and I began laughing out loud.  AARP…  Non-partisan…  BUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

And yes, Barack Obama approved this message.

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
