Forget "Hail to the Chief" and "Yes, We Can." Obama finally has a theme song that suits his governing ability.


Laughable in oh-so-many ways:
Democrats frustrated by Obama's "Big Bird" campaign turn

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In 2008, singer will.i.am provided Barack Obama's presidential campaign with music for its signature anthem, "Yes We Can." On Tuesday, at a rally for Obama in Columbus, Ohio, the performer chose to play something new: the theme song for "Sesame Street."

For Obama's supporters, already dismayed by the president's halting performance in last week's debate with Republican Mitt Romney, that change in tune is a new source for concern as they fret that a children's TV show has become a new backdrop for their candidate's campaign.

In a moment of tightening polls and climbing anxiety for Obama's supporters, the president's decision to grant Big Bird a starring role in his campaign this week has presented another reason to reach for the Alka-Seltzer....
And we also have the following, dated October 9, 2012:
When President Barack Obama stepped off the stage in Denver last week the 60 million Americans watching the debate against Mitt Romney already knew it had been a disaster for him.

But what nobody knew, until now, was that Obama believed he had actually won....

Obama: Debate prep can be 'a drag'

With President Obama holed up in a Nevada resort for debate practice, things can get pretty boring on the White House beat right now.

Pretty boring for Obama too, apparently.

"Basically they're keeping me indoors all the time," Obama told a supporter on the phone during a visit to a Las Vegas area field office.

"It's a drag," he added. "They're making me do my homework."


Obama then stumbled on the number of days until the election -- "what is it, 34?" he said, before being given the correct number, 36.

"So whatever it is," Obama said...
Remember this from 2011?  Sheesh.

A more fitting tune for Obama's re-election campaign, if not his entire first term, is the theme music from Looney Tunes.


  1. Good strategy, AOW. After Ryan got his face punched in last night the best move is to focus back on Obummer as soon as possible.

  2. Duck,
    No strategy on my part.

    Because I work a heavy work schedule on Tuesdays through Thursdays, I queue up posts several days in advance.

    I did write something today about last night's debate -- after I slept on it and gained a bit of perspective.

  3. Duck,
    But you're right about one thing: the spotlight should be on Obama -- and on Romney, too, for that matter. Those two men are the candidates for POTUS.

  4. Obama needs to forget about Big Bird and focus on the Big Bear (Russia).

  5. Shows what Obama thinks of himself, that he can do no wrong, that he actually won that debate. I'm sure Michelle set him strait pretty quickly.

    Right Truth

  6. Can you tell me how to get...
    how to get to Stoopidy Street.

  7. Poor Obummer. Maybe that was his problem during the last debate. They were keeping him inside too much and not giving him enough golf time.

  8. Same old tired narratives in one form or the other. They tried this in 2010 on Republicans in general.

    XXXXX is going to kill "Big Bird".

    "Sherrie Westin, executive vice president of the Sesame Workshop, told CNN. “But when they always ... say we’re going to kill Big Bird — that is actually misleading, because ‘Sesame Street’ will be here.”

    Sesame Street, makes a lot of money. Enough that they can afford to give Big Birds "voice" over $300K a year.

    Also: (from the same article)

    “Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or paticipate (sic) in political campaigns,” the production company said in a release. “We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.”

    Todays program is brought to you by the letter "R".

  9. Warren,
    Can Americans see how inane it is for a Presidential candidate to harp on Big Bird? Well, I guess that children will be children.
