How utterly metaphoric is this shot of our clueless POTUS standing in a drought-stricken Iowa corn field trying to ignite the magic of four years ago.
President Barack Obama often says Iowa holds a special place in his heart. Iowans in 2008 lifted him from underdog presidential hopeful to Democratic caucus winner, and gave him 54 percent of the vote in that year’s general election.In the mean time, Ryan was working the crowds over at the Iowa State Fair and dealing with some hecklers:
He began a three-day bus tour through the state today on less sure footing, with polls showing Iowa up for grabs in November. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney sent his newly-announced running mate, Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, to the Iowa State Fair today to try to steal some of Obama’s thunder.
..yeah, because nothing sways my opinions more than a couple of angry, militant, menopausal lesbians screaming in my face. Meantime, VPOTUS Flat-Line (Slow Joe Biden) was packing them in at an auditorium in North Carolina:
Vice President Joe Biden spoke before a crowd of 660 people in Durham, N.C., at the Durham Armory during a campaign stop for President Barack Obama on Monday. Biden’s appearance before a comparatively meager crowd came a day after the newly formed Republican ticket — presidential candidate Mitt Romney and running mate Paul Ryan — rallied a crowd of over 10,000 in High Point, N.C., about an hour away, and a crowd of approximately 4,700 people in Mooresville, N.C., about two-and-a-half hours away.Hmmmmmmm. Just spitballin' here, but armories are pretty big places, aren't they? Those folks musta rattled around that building like the BBs in Biden's empty cranium. And it seems that the enthusiasm and crowds showing up for the Romney Ryan ticket is becoming a concern for the Pantload Campaign. They sent out the following fundraising plea:
Paul --..be afraid..ma'am..be very afraid,
I just got this disturbing report: Yesterday's Romney-Ryan rally in North Carolina pulled in an overflow crowd of 15,000 people. There's no spinning that number. It's a LOT of people, and the Republican base in energized.
And that's not all. Since the VP announcement, Romney's campaign has brought in over 70,000 donations from his Tea Party base. We've got to step up our game and mobilize our supporters -- starting right now. Donate $3 or right now to help us rally our base around President Obama's agenda.
Listen to what one Republican supporter said about Paul Ryan: "I love him...He's going to excite the Tea Party and get them on board..."
We can't let the Republicans claim the momentum. Donate $3 or whatever you can: http://dccc.org/Eat-Shit-And-Die
