To put it another way, the Republicans are asking for a hand out and Obama is offering a good on the free market.

Now that's funny.

Mitt Romney cannot put out any merchandise that has a dog on it. Obama knows this and is playing that up. Nice.

Oh I dunno. This is the GOP that cheered for people being killed or dying without medical care. He should start a line of Mitt Dog Cages.

you're not Republican enough.

In all fairness, Romney is offering to say whatever the hell you want as long as you give him money, so it's pretty much the same thing.

I'm dubious on his choice of correct tree height. I'm from California, and we grow our trees really big here. Yeah, I like cars, and he likes cars, and that's really what I'm looking for in someone to lead a country of 350 million people and $15 trillion GDP, but without a proper tree-height match, I'm concerned about his overall electability, especially in California.

I'm not a geometer or rockomancer or whatever, but I always thought the definition of a lake implied that it was inland.

I think he's more of an opportunist independent who runs as anything that can get him elected. Didn't he give Obama money last election?

God, I wish I had the money to drop several hundred dollars on stuff from that site for my uber-conservative relatives. Stuff that would be useful, and they would want to use or wear, but would do so with severe political reservations.

"What the hell Scott? Why does your dog have an Obama collar and leash?"
"Um, my brother...in-law...sent... um,.. It's because Obama wants us all to be obedient lapdogs and he wants to lead us around like dogs and then we have to go to soshulism dog school in our Obama dog collars and all get neutered in government vet healthcare clinics and we all have to take birth control anyway. Yeah, fark that guy!"
