    I think we have a budding theologian in that little one.

  • Oh, liberal media! If you look at the full transcript, you can see what she really said:

    “I’m tired of Bronc Obama and [I really want] Mitt Romney [to win because we can trust his most recent stance on the issues to be the one he maintains during his potential administration].”

    This looks just like a child who has been watching to much TV, and needs a cuddle, and a nap!

    That is how a non-American reader feels coming to this blog over the last couple of months… 🙂

    Joking – sorta kinda.

    Poor baby — maybe she was taking too many robo-calls! That would make me cry!

    I’d like to announce that I’ve decided to make a decision about thinking about running for election to the office of the President of the United States of America in 2016. At this time I am exploring the creation of an Exploration Team to evaluate any future evaluations of the political will of the American People so that I might make a more informed decision when deciding whether to decide to offer my services to the American People as their President, or not. While a vote for me really will set you free, such a vote must be undertaken in the full and complete confidence that you may have in my full and complete commitment to the cause of TBD. To that end, my exploratory committee to explore the formation of an Exploration Team, in consultation with, and full approval by, me puts forth the following platform and organizing principle of my exploratory campaign for the highest office in the land in 2016:

    1. Women. America has long been a nation of beautiful women. We need to maintain our global reputation for female beauty by importing as many gorgeous, totally hot foreign babes as possible. To that end, I propose to set up an Expedited Hotness Green Card program (tentatively the EH-1 visa) to get as many of these women into the United States as quickly as possible.

    2. Liquor. All that hard work getting hot babes into the country calls for a drink. First round is on me, America. Bottoms up!

    3. Guns. Lock and load.

    4. Foreign Affairs. See #1. If’n anybody’s got a problem with that, I’ve got a few aircraft carriers and drones to pound some sense where it’s needed.

    5. Medicare. Beautiful women in nurses uniforms. Got a problem with that too. Talk to Mr. Drone.

    That’s all for now, as it was getting close to last call at Hooters and my exploratory chairman to explore getting a committee chairman for the exploration committee to explore the formation of an Exploration Team had to get home to his wife.

    Remember to think of the children as I’m sure I can count on your support to support my decision to decide when I decide to think about making a decision for a better America for all.

    Thank you, and God bless America.

    Maybe I’m really tired because there is nothing under the topic – 4 year old Abigail Adams. I suppose I can Goggle around and see what was said.

    Or is that the point? She says nothing, zero, nada. tODD mentioned a transcript. I can probably ferret it out.

    You got me curious. (:

  • It was a joke, ladies. Come on. What four-year-old is so naive as to believe that we could trust Romney’s most recent stance on the issues to be the one he maintains during his potential administration?

    Did a quick Goggle seach and came across the video. Don’t know why it didn’t show up on my computer. Anyway I wonder if she wasn’t coached a little. And as Mike said, her face is all blotchy. I didn’t find a full transcript, just the little note that came with the video. I take it as nothing more than a joke and hate to seem unfeeling, but I’m not certain little Abigail is crying about Bronco and Mitt TV saturation at all. Just sign me as Hard Hearted Hannah the Skeptical.

    I heard it reported that Abigail’s family does not watch TV and gets their news from NPR. NPR apologized to Abigail when they heard about it.

    love her “bronco” and “rominy” pronunciations…very catchy and hip too, would recommend the campaigns trademark and use them now!

    by the way, who do you think who would get her vote….wonder if they asked her off camera 🙂

    cheers!

  • It’s scary to a little kid when adults yell at each other. A child needs order, security, and predictability. As do we all! That’s about all we should look for on our government leaders.

    Well put, Dr. Veith @15. I don’t know why the little video didn’t show up on my computer but a quick Goggle search gave me all kinds of results.

    Yes, indeed. Order, security, and predicability–that is a comfort to almost anyone. I’m wondering if your prediction of several months ago will come to pass. We have mailed in our ballots for Romney but I have this nagging feeling that Obama may win enough electoral votes to be relected.

    I’m not a person who enjoys hearing people yelling and screaming and the ads are tiresome. They don’t influence me other than negatively. Not only as to the “message” but the delivery.

    I think there could be a tiny analogy to your “order, security, and predictablity” phrase applied to our great liturgical Lutheran church. As opposed to many of the loud, unorganized non-denominational groups.

    My almost-three-year-old has not reached the tears stage, but yesterday she kept talking about “government Romney” and “government Obama.”
