    Trinkets that stick it to Obama start to sell


    [url=http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/aug/11/cashing-in-on-no-he-cant/]Trinkets that stick it to Obama start to sell]


    In the political paraphernalia department, "Yes, we can" is becoming "No, he can't."

    Anti-Obama memorabilia -- from T-shirts to bumper stickers to buttons -- is increasingly emerging in the marketplace as the president's economic and health care policies polarize supporters and detractors.

    While "Mama for Obama" was a popular slogan during the 2008 election cycle, that design has been retooled with angry and fickle disenchantment: "To the Mama for Obama -- thanks for the tax hike." The "Audacity of Hope," the title of Mr. Obama's popular book, has been replaced by the "Audacity of Hype."

    "It really started peaking about a month ago," said Amy Maniatis, vice president of marketing at the online seller Cafepress.com.


    It seems the polish has come off. As Obama plans a propaganda "town hall" stagecraft repleat with teleprompters and restricted access only to supporters, the backlash is growning stronger and stronger...


    Let's hope, "No, he can't" is his legacy, for the sake of this great nation!

    Louisiana's Vitter backs 'insurance associations,' prescription drug imports | thetowntalk.com | The Town Talk
    The panel of speakers all joined Vitter in opposing the reform package being debated in Congress. Questions from audience members were screened and selected in advance of the event.
    So it is just fine for Republicans to pre-screen questions at a supposed Town Hall, and most likely pack the forum with loyal supporters, but it is not okay for the President to do something similar? You do know that Bush never held a Town Hall that was not packed with supporters and had pre-screened questions? hell many of his press conferences were like that for peak sake!

    Polish....there was no polish. It was clear what Obama was before the election, I said it myself all the time. People were just really pissed at Bush and McCain was no choice and here came something different. People were so disillusioned by the past administration that they fell into the hype and lies which is Obama. Now people are seeing what I was saying from the beginning.

    Maybe one day we'll get a President we can feel good about and who supports the People and limited government. One day.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Making excuses? You were the one that brought up his town hall in the OP regarding trinket sales that supposedly are down.. considering the source.. then well. And now you switching to attacking me just because I yet again called you out on your hypocritical attitude?

    I swear, if I had a nickel for every time some Obama lickspittle said, "B-b-b-but Bush did it, too!!!!!1!!", I could finally buy my own island in the Caribbean.

    "Change," my pasty white ass. Man up and take responsibility for your guy, just for once.

    Responibility for what? We are discussing 2 things here.

    1. The supposed fall in trinket sales according the far right moonie newspaper Washington Times.

    2. Obama holding a town hall where according to the OP, it is stacked with supporters and the questions are screened.

    On the first one.. being from the Washington Times.. well that about says it all.

    On the second one, I only pointed out the fact that one of the GOPs self proclaimed "leaders" held a "Town Hall" a few days ago, where most questions were pre screened and odds on the hall was stacked with supporters. I also reminded the OP that under the Bush administration it was standard operating procedure to do exactly what he now finds "horrible and funny".

    So we now have the OP, in another bashing Obama thread, using the supposed falling sales of Trinkets from a right wing moonie owned newspaper and then coming with the mocking comment about him holding a "Town Hall" propoganda meeting with supposed screen questions and yet the OPs "own side" does it all the time..

    How much of a double standard do you want?

    This thread belongs in the "Bash Obama section of these boards" and not in breaking news.

    Mmm-hmm.

    Like I said, "Bush did it, too!" is not a valid criticism. Try again.
