Obama fans hosed big time- text messages? Ha!
If you fanned Obama on FaceBoook you were promised a text message announcing the candidate's veep pick before the major media was informed. What a scam! The media announced that Obama picked Joe Biden around midnight and the FB announcement didn't appear until after 3am -- text messages were way behind media announcements. The Obama campaign data-mined 1.3 million Obamorons on FaceBook, and failed to deliver the payoff. And the hapless FB Barackoids are going to have to live with Obamaspam from now on. I bet the mobile phone service providers just love this windfall. And no, I didn't sign up, I saw this one coming. Once again the bamaheads who think that a new kind of politics is in the offing were hosed, a trickle that will become a downpour.
That aside, Biden is a great candidate for vice president. This is a good ticket.
I am one Hillary Clinton supporter who thinks she would not have been the right choice for veep. Frankly, I think she qualifies for a much better job. VPOTUS has but two duties under the constitution; To replace the president in case he or she cannot fulfill his or her term and to break a tied vote in the Senate. Thats it, that's all. All other vice presidential functions are at the sole discretion of the president. So a veep can be given an empty desk, if the president so desires. The Cheney phenomenon, where he is essentially a shadow president is strictly a Bush administration prerogative. And one of the worst turn of events in the course American history.
Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
