Day392 Sunday 09/25/11

ran 4.0 miles
Today ends week fifty-six of running against Obama. I ran 23.7 miles this week, averaging 3.39 miles per day.

On Day380 I had posted about Obama’s new website, which exists solely for Americans to turn in their friends and neighbors any time they hear negative comments or ideas about Barack Obama. As soon as I heard about the site I checked it out and turned myself in, explaining to that I was doing everything I could to make Barack Obama a one-term president. I informed them that I was running 2,080 miles against our president over the course of two+ years because I don’t believe he is doing anything to help this country.

Consequently, since that day I have been receiving emails from Barack Obama’s campaign headquarters. At first, I was frustrated that I kept getting them but then I started reading them and found them to be somewhat amusing in how ridiculous the messages were that they contained.

Here is part of one from Ann Marie Habershaw, the Chief Operating Officer of Obama for America. The subject line reads “Yes or no, people”. All of these emails are essentially asking for donations. But this one goes on to explain how “Our field team has an incredibly detailed plan for a ground game that reaches voters in all 50 states. That means opening offices in some battleground states right now, and laying the plans to open others across the country next year. The campaign has plans to be the biggest grassroots movement this country has ever seen.”

Biggest grassroots movement this country has ever seen? Good luck with that. While the Tea Party, the biggest grass roots movement this country has seen in a long, long time, peacefully wields logic and constitutional principles, our president seems to define grass roots movements as organizing union thugs and encouraging black Americans to “Put on their marching shoes”. Why would a president of the United States of America tell blacks to put on their marching shoes? Are other Americans unaffected by the dismal economy we are weathering right now? Shouldn’t he be telling everyone to put on their marching shoes?

Here is another one from Jim Messina, Campaign Manager of Obama for America.

“The wealthiest Americans don't need further tax cuts and in many cases aren't even asking for them. Requiring that they pay their fair share is the only practical way forward. The Republican alternative is to drastically slash education, gut Medicare, let roads and bridges crumble, and privatize Social Security. That's not the America we believe in -- but many in the Republican leadership actually prefer those policies, which explains their refusal to act.

That's why they'll say ‘tax increase’ over and over again, trying to muddy the waters and trick ordinary Americans into thinking the Buffett Rule will hurt them. And if we don't speak out right now, they just might get away with it.”
LinkThe message here is that raising taxes is the only practical way to move forward. Ridiculous. Ask any of the Republican candidates running for president right now if there are alternative solutions. There are many. This is the only solution in Barack Obama’s world, which we have been living in stagnantly for nearly three years. Four more years of this? Someone Else 2012!

914.8 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day27.
