Time to support Obama. Why? Doughnuts, etc.

Can liberals learn to constructively support, instead of sacking their own quarterback? We’d better—it’s game time, and Michele Bachman is making Rick Perry is making Mitt Romney is making Ron Paul look moderate is making Huntsman look extreme for backing “science.” 

Even the Wall Street Journal can’t seem to dislike this new jobs plan:

Obama will pay for his $447 billion jobs plan by ending a series of tax breaks for oil and gas companies, hedge-fund managers and people making more than $200000 (online.wsj.com)

    The fact that this blog claims higher awareness as its motto and overtly supports Barack Obama is truly pathetic.

    The political consciousness of this blog is scary considering it is to represent the higher states of consciousness achieved through meditation and Yoga practice.

    Barack Obama is not "mindful" He appointed a Monsanto executive to run the FDA, he is surrounded by globalists from the CFR and Goldman Sachs.

    No, I am not a Republican nor do I support and Republican canditate either.

    It would be nice to see some actual social and political critique rather than mimicking Rachel Maddow and Bill Maher.

    Loved the picture, made me laugh. Let's work together folks to get stuff done it's amazing how well cooperation works.

    If Obama is a quarterback, what team is he playing for? Not mine. Not peacemakers, not justice, not equity or egalitarianism. Gadaffi is no devil. Nor is Osama, at least no more than Obama, Bush, etc. The “depression” he “prevented” has not been used as an impetus to build, but to twiddle about and complain that his opponents/enablers are holding him back. The great speeches of the campaign faded within a month of his taking office. Better than nothing health care really a give away to insurers, the dollar flopping about, no talk of tariffs while a lauded solar company files for bankruptcy… MORE war… Next up: Mr. Mindful defends his support of the Iraq war cause everyone was doing it.

    I love this hilarious take on all the seriously great accomplishments Obama has made. Sometimes, people forget that the little things he has done has and will make a difference. And while I do get frustrated at times at his commitment to compromise and be bipartisan, I am filled more with respect than annoyance.

    And he got me doughnuts!

  5. […] Obama and the traitorous Warren Buffett have tried to push a new radical rule that would force anyone making over two million a year to pay at least 30 percent in taxes. Thanks to our Republican friends in the Senate, that bill was stopped before it could gather any real momentum. Apparently, Obama and Buffett don’t know the first rule of economics: All growth starts at the top and trickles down from there. […]
