We’ve got something even better than the real thing!

Oh oh! Somebody call our tailor! Pronto! The Emperor’s New Clothes are starting to disappear before our eyes.

Bo awesomeHow embarrassing

President Obama has no greater fan base than the mainstream media. They gleefully carried his water through Bill Ayers, the BP oil spill, and Fast & Furious. But because they have no more soul to sell, the one thing the media can't do is make the economy better for him. This, of course, puts the media in the awful position (at least for them) of having to pile on Their Precious One's increasing pile of failures, including a speech today that was supposed to reboot the President's flailing campaign:

Prior to President Barack Obama’s marathon 54 minute speech in Ohio today, the Obama campaign sent our (sic) several statements promising the speech would be a major address framing the campaign going forward. Despite the hype, the speech was mainly a rehash of themes and ideas from the president’s recent stump speeches and his remarks were widely panned as overly long by the political press corps. ...

Before the speech was over, Politico’s Mike O’Brien begged the president to stop.

On the air, MSNBC’s Jonathan Alter said it was “one of the worst speeches I’ve ever heard Barack Obama make.” He refused to back down.

What on earth could possibly be wrong here? TOTUS was all loaded up, the audience was all fired up:

In fact, the only one not fired up seemed to be…Big Guy.

And despite having loaded all those words carefully onto TOTUS’ sparkly clean screen, people remain stubbornly unimpressed. Even those with a predisposition to be so:

I had high hopes for President Obama’s speech on the economy. But instead of going to Ohio on Thursday with a compelling plan for the future, the president gave Americans a falsehood wrapped in a fallacy.

The falsehood is that he has been serious about cutting government spending. The fallacy is that this election will be some sort of referendum that will break the logjam in Washington.                                                              (h/t Lucianne)

So, we just pretended it didn’t happen and went about our daily business: Photo Ops and fundraisers.

My, our signature’s getting a little sloppier these days isn’t it?

What’s up with that?

mo yellow shoes

If you’re concerned about the yellow shoes, look closely and you’ll note that the Mexican jumping bean dress has yellow it it.

It’s just that Lady M just doesn’t understand how the brain blends colors, because no one ever showed her that trap door. So instead of being able to study fine art she was forced to study sociology at Princeton and get a law degree from Harvard (which she subsequently found to be so unfulfilling that she abandoned her law license, voluntarily). So just remember that the next time you see one of MO’s “color pops” and perhaps you can be a bit more forgiving.

I don’t, however, know how to explain the lavender mini-me sweater, nor are there any words to explain this security leak:

saluting mo

Heads will roll, I assure you. This goes well beyond a breach of our rear-end photo embargo. Our super secret containment systems are considered top security and a violation of this magnitude will result in swift and unequivocal action.

It’s not as if this is a simple case of someone leaking national security secrets to the New York Times.

Anyway, back to our lagging campaign. As you may have heard, the original Obama Girl’s crush has chilled and she won’t be utilizing her internationally famous 54-Double Ds to help us WTF.

The worst campaign news yet is that Amber, OG’s real name, is being coy about her decision to leave our campaign saying it was fun, butt just a paying job. It sounds like she’s sending up an “I could be the Romney Girl for the right price” trial balloon. Maybe it would be a good idea for the Mittster to see what he’s got in the budget. Girlfriend is persuasive and loaded with charms:

Personally, I think she knows she doesn’t fit our 2012 campaign theme, which is far more inclusive than it has been in the past. Butt good news!  We’ve found a replacement that’s even better than the real thing! Obama Boy. See what you think:
