You Look Mahvelous, Dahling!

Lady M was at Walter Reed’s Fisher House yesterday to launch her Month of the Military Child in her fuzzy yellow baby chicks mini-me sweater.

I sure HOPE there aren’t any real baby chicks in those Spring Holiday baskets:


And because it’s all about the children, she made Little Bo tag along.

Butt I think you’ll agree with me, Lady M looks marvelous!

Which is something you can say about Lady M, butt you can’t say about Paul Ryan’s irresponsible budget – at least not if you are Mitt Romney. Here’s Big Guy, schooling the Mittster on the proper use of rhetoric:

"He said that he's "very supportive" of this new budget, and he even called it 'marvelous,'" Obama told a group of news editors. "Which is a word you don't often hear when it comes to describing a budget.

"It's a word you don't often hear generally," Obama added.

Unless of course you’re talking about truly marvelous things. Like Lady M:

 "I think [Lady M] is somebody who they can identify with because she's had to balance a lot of different issues. So she's doing a marvelous job. I'm very, very proud of her." – Big Guy, July 5, 2009.

Or Chile:

"Indeed, our marvelous surroundings today, just steps from where Chile lost its democracy decades ago, is a testament to Chile's progress and its undying democratic spirit." – Big Guy, March 21, 2011.

Or Big Guy’s personal fave - oratory:

"It is right for us to celebrate Dr. King's marvelous oratory, but it is worth remembering that progress did not come from words alone." – Big Guy, Oct. 16, 2011.

Butt I think Big Guy’s right: who calls a budget that shrinks the size of government in the process of reducing the federal deficit “marvelous?” Who talks like that? Do we really want a President who says such weird and uncool stuff? 

bo no more sour balls  Like talking about “an unelected group of people” you mean?

Butt let me be clear, if anybody’s budget could be described as “marvelous” it would be Big Guy’s; after all, his budget is extraordinarily robust. It fundamentally transforms America to a permanent debtor nation by growing your children’s debt at an unprecedented rate. Make no mistake: this transformation isn’t going to be easy. Butt we can do it. Yes we can!

Or at least we could if we can get anyone to actually vote for Big Guy’s budget.

By contrast, the Ryan budget that Romney thinks is “marvelous” is actually quite disrespectful of all the good work Big Guy’s done for the country so far. In fact, it seems to me as though it’s a bit dismissive, even derisive.

I don’t know how anyone could expect to win with rhetoric like that. Really Bush league, if you know what I mean.


Anyhoo, don’t worry about our WTF campaign for 2012. As of today, everything is looking simply mahvelous, dahling!

bo-nothing better anyway-FINAL copyBarry: Because there’s nothing better anyway

Got to run now; I’m getting ready for the special Big White screening of the re-release of “To Kill a Mockingbird” this afternoon. Boy, where would we be without our Hollywood cabal?
