Re-elect me and expect a different result

Re-elect me and expect a different result

From reader Paula:

I really enjoy your blog, I don’t write much, or comment much, but I appreciate all you do! We are vacationing in Lincoln City, Oregon, and while we were down in Newport, Oregon, today, I saw these stickers on a car with, yes, a California license plate! Enjoy!

I tell my children, “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got.”

I tell my wife [when she listens], “It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.”

Common sense. It never applies in the universe where nearly half of the electorate as voting for ‘free stuff’.

As H.L. Mencken once remarked, “If you’re on relief, they shouldn’t let you vote. Otherwise, we’ll end up with a government that exists just to give us things.”

We’re there. We’ve become the Chicago States of America.

Thats as good as Ive seen and hits the nail on the head.
If I had to select a runner up it might be this one

Seriously..the pic you show indeed demonstrates the adage we all know about insanity. Expecting different results.
Its at the heart of Obama’s economic policy. More spending, more spending and more spending.
Poor results at best.
Then what I call “gamblers fallacy” sets in with claims we didnt spend enough.
Like a gambler saying his system worked…he just didnt have enough chances to show desired results.

“Re-elect me and expect a different result”

I would. Much, much worse, and far less constrained.

The round-ups, the brandings,
The calvings are done,
As Senators sell out
And move on one by one.

We must tell the stories,
So memories live on,
Past time when the tellers
Themselves are long gone.

Let’s throw a packing party lasting from election day till inauguration day. Let’s help Stupid to get the hell out.

    Stop at the local pack & ship and send the Obama’s empty boxes to help expedite the process. It’s a favor in return for his empty promises.

    I guess you can fill it with newspaper for wrapping. Numerous pages of the jobs reports and economic news will work just fine.

Hope & Change for 2008

Spin & Blame for 2012

Initial phase: Santa Brother. Close phase: Big Brother Claws.

Generally the cure for stupid is “one behind the ear.”

Obviously that is NOT an option so voting it out is a great alternative. I call it eviction by the masses, an act that I will actively be participating in.

If only I lived in Chicago or Illinois, I could probably vote more than once…

On my way to work yesterday, on the freeway I saw a Prius with the sticker, “Republicans for Obama 2012.”

Color me doubtful the driver was truly a Republican.

    Yep. Being Republican and purchasing a Prius seem irreconcilable. Likewise a GOP voting for Obobo. I’d compare it to a resident of Dallas avidly supporting the Falcons. Theoretically possible but except for those with death wishes, logically unlikely.

      Eh, my wife’s brother is a rock-ribbed, Obama-hating, conservative-first Republican, and he just bought his second Prius.

If memory serves, the Democrats actually tried this with Carter in 1980. They claimed that Jimmah had finally learned the job and shouldn’t be replaced by Reagan who hadn’t climbed the learning curve.

They’ll say anything.

That’s my pic! Yay, I have made the big time! I just about died when I saw those stickers, had to get my camera out and take a picture because I just knew it would be great for this site! Thanks for posting it!
