Mildred Purse Deep-Sixes the "Romney Won't Debate Obama" Rumor

Who dares to suggest that  Mitt Romney won't debate President  ObamaThat suggests to me that Mitt cannot defend himselfI ask you to look at the recordThe man has won everywhere without being popularTop that if you canWell he has done it mainly with other people's moneyHa top thatTo a winner like Mitt a debate with President Obamawill be child's playIf he can do the above feats he can surelyfake out Barack ObamaI can just see young Mitt standing over an inert Presidentlike a hunter over a felled lion  adding him to his unbroken string of  political  triumphsLet's see that would be Ma ...There must be something ...

My New Slogan -End The Blame and Imagine a Future

Barack Obama vs. Mitt Romney, an Uninspiring Race : The New Yorker:

'via Blog this'

Whoever does this convincingly will win.

The current campaign is a blame war and people are sick of that.

An Obama future includes everyone and should be green or even beyond green to a new society.

A Romney future ?

Whoever can imagine best gets to govern.

Obama Focus on The Future

Nothing tougher than the truth
Our current global oil automobile sprawl economy
is unaffordable for most
What can we do to forge an American Dream that is 
attainable affordable profitable
We can center on reclaiming of life at the grass roots
Safer life with fewer cars
Services scaled to communities
Communities more and more walkable and bike-able
More face to face social life
Safer
More attractive public space
More living where you work and working where you live
Zoning to make living walkable
with most things needed within reach
Less domination of our lives by the machine
the interchange, incessant emphasis on
what is increasingly unaffordable
All this requires a prodigious leap to thinking
Past oil
Past sprawl
Past almost exclusive reliance on the car
We need to heal the economy by imagining new economies
that improve life and health
and make education affordable to all
Today's way won't cut it
Tomorrow is up to us and our native abilities.

Post-Sarkozy Letter from A Friend In Paris

Mes Amis,

Bonjour! We're now in Paris, in time to say goodbye to Sarkozy. Last night we went to a barbecue ...in anticipation of Sarkozy's defeat. It was a crowd of academics, artists, writers, etc.They were ecstatic as the returns came in -- as were we. The interesting thing is that at the retail level, every one seems to welcome Sarkozy's defeat. In the outlying areas beyond Paris and flashed on the TV screen, the vote for Hollande was overwhelming, which caused me to wonder where Sarkozy mustered his 48%.

I must say that he (Sarkozy) gave a very gracious concession speech, showing more generosity than he ever did in office, professing not only a great appreciation for the privilege of serving France but seemingly wishing Hollande genuine best wishes for undertaking the same honor. He followed that up today by inviting Hollande to celebrate at his side tomorrow's celebrations of V-E Day, which are still a big deal in France ...

In any case Sarkozy leaves office o…
