Why Obama Won The Election

I've been good about political posts but I couldn't resist this, it's cute...sort of.


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 last fall.

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


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


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 cream.

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


Remember, the government cannot give anything to anyone ---

that they have not first taken away from someone else.

I really liked this post! Striking resemblance, so incredibly true. Something about him told me not to vote for him. And I listened to my gut feeling on this one.

He's good at speeches and impressing everyone but there was just no substance to back up such flashy speeches. I have never seen a weak president in my entire life until now.

And to think that he came from my state is a complete embarrasment to our country. I'll admit, all other presidents weren't without flaw but this one is literally dragging the country down the tubes and in realtime.

Thank you for stopping by! He might have a birth cert. from you neck of the woods but his actions have been anything but American that's for sure.
