Sing the Little Children

Last week I wrote a post which used Senator Obama's own words to draw a contrast between 'then' Junior Senator Obama - 2008 to the latest iteration of the (Fundamentally Transformed) 'President' Obama - 2012. 

My favorite two lines from Senator Obama's quotes (directed to John McCain) follow here:

"If you don't have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare voters.

If you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things."

Yes, President Obama.  You have no fresh (untried) ideas.  Everything you've tried has gotten you the same results as when they've been tried in the past.  (a.k.a.:  Welcome Back Carter) 

You paint your opponent as someone people should run from. 

You make a big (huge?) election about small things. 

Sometimes, even, small, young, and impressionable 'things'.

Like these...

support President Obama (and disrespect their 'know-nothing' parents!)



In case you missed any of these pithy lyrics, here they are, just for you, in their entirety (keep a trash can next to you, just in case you feel the need to 'purge' following the reading of the text which follows):


Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea
 

We don’t have to pay for freeways!
Our schools are good enough
Give us endless wars
On foreign shores
And lots of Chinese stuff
 

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you
 

We haven’t killed all the polar bears
But it’s not for lack of trying
Big Bird is sacked
The Earth is cracked
And the atmosphere is frying
 

Congress went home early
They did their best we know
You can’t cut spending
With elections pending
Unless it’s welfare dough
 

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you
 

Find a park that is still open
And take a breath of poison air
They foreclosed your place
To build a weapon in space
But you can write off your au pair
 

It’s a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long term’s kind of a drag
 

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And yeah, we’re blaming you
 

You did your best
You failed the test
 

Mom and Dad
We’re blaming you!



I find it interesting that President Obama once again turns to the children to get his message out.  He did it previously of course, but something in the back of my mind tells me that this type of 'indoctrination' was done even longer ago than this recent history stuff...

I also remember something about the President's 2012 slogan, "Forward!"?  (As of today featuring an exclamation mark (!) to illustrate how serious this election is!  Yeah, makes all the difference in the world from a marketing perspective!!!  Please notice the excessive use of "!" to let you know how important the preceding message was!!!)

Ah yes, next, listen to additional sweet and melodious voices of innocents used to promote, um, well, you decide...


 

Yes, it was a simpler time.

Back then, you could tell one's allegiance by the color of their shirt. 

Could this be why the 2012 Obama video was filmed in Black / White?

Just wondering...
