    ONE OF THE BEST EXPLANATION
    OF WHY OBAMA WON THE ELECTION



    (From a teacher in the Nashville area)

    "We are worried about 'the cow' when it is all about the 'Ice Cream.'

    The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching third grade this year...

    The presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest. I decided we would have an election for a class president.

    We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech and the class would vote.

    To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members.

    We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students should have.

    We got many nominations and from those, Jamie and Olivia were picked to run for the top spot.

    The class had done a great job in their selections. Both candidates were good kids.

    I thought Jamie might have an advantage because he got lots of parental support.

    I had never seen Olivia's mother.

    The day arrived when they were to make their speeches.

    Jamie went first.

    He had specific ideas about how to make our class a better place. He ended by promising to do his very best.

    Everyone applauded and he sat down.

    Now is was Olivia's turn to speak.

    Her speech was concise. She said, "If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream." She sat down.

    The class went wild. "Yes! Yes! We want ice cream."

    She surely would say more. She did not have to.

    A discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream? She wasn't sure.

    Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it... She didn't know.

    The class really didn't care. All they were thinking about was ice cr eam..

    Jamie was forgotten. Olivia won by a landslide.

    Every time Barack Obama opened his mouth he offered ice cream and 52 percent of the people reacted like nine year olds.

    They want ice cream.

    The other 48 percent know they're going to have to feed the cow and clean up the mess."



    This is the ice cream Obama has given us!

    Rimfingeridiot;

    The fact remains, that you are so dumb, the only quote you can manage, is from some British bozo that died of stupidity in the 1800's, that didn't have a clue. To that point, fimfingeridiot, you are in the same boat. Dumber than a box of rocks. Comprehend?

    Dimfire has not made a single post that I have seen that has any bearing in fact.

    Just another Kool-Aid addict unable to think for himself.

    Name calling and attempting to diminish an opponent is their stock in trade, since they can"t play on a level field.

    Janus is their god, Orwell is their prophet.

    Rimfirejim,

    "While it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people,it is most certainly true that most stupid people are conservative."

    Typical musing of a liberal. I'm a conservative. So what makes you think you're intellectually superior to me?
