For this upcoming November election, here's an idea to help restore American strength and prosperity: White middle-aged men must band together and throw the idiots out.
That's all there is to it.
At least, if I listen to President Obama. For, in his mind, victory requires splitting the population and only these folks matter: young people, African-Americans, Latinos and women.
He says it here, when appealing to Dems to get out the vote:
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: It will be up to each of you to make sure the young people, African-Americans, Latinos and the women who powered our victory in 2008, stand together once again.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
Now, I don't mind it, because he's being honest. He knows he has the black vote. Young people are green enough to dismiss the debate over big and small government, so Obama can get them too. Women, primarily those shielded from conservativism via an intense combo of psychotherapy, grad school deployment, self-help books and dating wusses, could end up in Obama's pocket too.
That leaves Latinos, who the president believes he'll win once he drops the "A bomb" — amnesty.
And who's left? White dopes like me.
See, in the post-racial world, it's Obama who sees race. He looks at me and sees someone he can't win over.
Is it because I disagree with most of his policies? That's the reason. I don't like progressives. I think the health reform bill sucks, the whole cap-and-trade thing screams nonsense and his financial finger-pointing ignores his party's role in the mortgage crisis. However, I still admit he's doing good in Afghanistan and I like his stances on both nuclear power and baggy pants.
Still, I feel Obama looks at me and just sees an AWG — "angry white guy." Which is why I'm not on his list.
Not since third grade basketball have I ever felt so left out. Actually, this is worse. Back then, I was picked last. Now I'm not even on the team.
Maybe it's because I'm short (again).
And if you disagree with me, you're a racist homophone.
