preaching to the choir

Yesterday while thousands of protesters stormed the capital, President Obama ran away to Minnesota.

Obviously he ran to Minnesota because he is well-supported there by the obambots.

But what is there to gain in that?  He won’t get as much coverage as the protesters in DC will.  He won’t win any new converts in a hall full of people who already blindly support him and his vague, blown-to-pieces-by-facts  “plan”.

The clear outcome is even more division than there already is.  He continues his screed about “lies” and “scare tactics” and brings no new or persuasive information.  I guess he thinks if he continues to pound the same tired crap enough someone will begin to believe it.

The irony is that as the changer-in-chief he completely misses the NLP adage “If what you’re doing isn’t working, try something else!” because he just keeps repeating it over and over – like a robot.  To his obambots.  What he needs is a playbook different than Alinsky’s.  Try something new Mr. President.  Try winning over your detractors with honesty and clarity.  If that doesn’t work, maybe you should rethink the plan.  Now there’s a novel idea – re-think something with a view towards finding something palatable to the majority of Americans instead of a minority of mooches who want something for nothing.

I take full responsibility for my own opinions, comments and slurs against asshats.  I'm just another guy with just another opinion. Although, I may be turning into my father who my mother always said was 'the world's foremost authority."
