After 4 years of failing to ignite the job market through government trickle-down priming – which did keep government workers, union members and green energy flim-flam artists employed – the President has now dedicated all his energy on one key job. Apparently his entire campaign is now not just about saving his own job, but that of one other special ‘person’ too:
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.
Yep, priority number one for Team Obama is to save this job:
I agree with others who note it is time for Big Bird to leave the nest and live on all those millions this hugely successful franchise brings in on its own. And we need a new President who doesn’t get so easily distracted and actually knows what he is doing when it comes to the economy, business and jobs.
