    Speaking of fantasies…

    One time when Bubba was giving a SOTU address, the Teleprompter got messed up and he had to wing it.
    Being the smooth-talkin’ devil that he is, he pulled it off (sorry).
    But wouldn’t it be freaking fantastic if that happened to the Won?

    MfM, I’m thinking that Dorner killed himself early enough so he wouldn’t interfere with his messiah’s speech tonight.

    Either that or the police killed him and torched the cabin to coverup that they did it.

    All in the effort to free up attention for Obama.

    Looking at the charts where 6.1 million jobs were created it becomes obvious that all you have to do to show job growth is ignore the corresponding losses.

    Don’t forget how much the economy is supposed to grow job-wise just to break even.

    1. There was a parade of victims to help convey the message that we are in a big, scary world that victimizes us, so Government programs must be paid for by…

    2. Raising Taxes – which was refered to not as such, but as “Revenues” and “Investments” in…

    3. Roads and Bridges, infrastructure, and education…”things we can be doing right now”…

    4. If only the wealthiest among us pay “just a little more,” we can get through this…
