but i suppose looking at it as politics vs. politics yeah, it's no different. i see nothing wrong with people choosing to boycott this pizza place because he's supporting obama. it's ridiculously hypocritical since those leading the boycott are likely the same who blasted those who dared to say they wouldn't eat at chick-fil-a anymore, freedom of speech, etc., but oh well.

Would lifting Mitt Romney up in the air and hugging him not indicate that he probably supports the same major form of discrimination?

I don't think any on the left are going to start campaigns saying everyone should go to this pizza place as a show that you support hate for a certain group of people like Huckabee did in the Chick-fil-A situation. Pretty massive difference.

they would get a huge turnout of Obama supporters if the pizza was a free handout,
they could use some of that government cheese on it.

As an American liberal, I would only be happy to endorse a mass campaign to eat at a restaurant if the restaurant's food were entirely vegan, organic, and locally-grown. And all of the ingredients must be delivered via a bicycle whose rider only eats the sort of food served at this restaurant. And the parking lot must have a machine that tickets anyone who parks a car in it instead of a bicycle, and destroys all non-Prius cars. And the restaurant, including that machine, must be solar powered. And the employees must be hired according to affirmative action quotas, naturally including those for LGBT people. The employees will belong to a union and earn a starting salary of $400,000/year plus benefits, though they must donate at least 90% of that in order to avoid being part of the 1%. Prayer must be punishable by heavy fines (called "taxation") in this restaurant, and use of the pronouns "he" and "she" (and their derivatives) must be enough to get one kicked out. The restaurant must take liberal advantage of government aid; if it's not in itself a welfare queen, then I hate it. All people over 50 must be banned, and the restaurant's speakers must blare out NPR all day. Yep, that would be my kind of restaurant.

I'm pretty sure that restaurant already exists in numerous locations throughout Melbourne's hipster inner hipster north.

I love that-just awesome. Now I have to check out the Romney one

U Didn't Build That by MC 'Bama - YouTube

The video was posted by Hugh Atkin, an Australian lawyer – yes, that explains the odd cameo by Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard – who has been in the viral political video business since 2008.

Atkin is bipartisan in his satire. He uploaded in March “Will the Real Mitt Romney Please Stand Up,” set to Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady.” That video has been viewed more than 4 million times.

Stolen from B&C.

Obama administration denies plan to invade Canada - POLITICO.com



Although, I still believe the Kroeger/Levigne marriage and album could be construed as an act of war. So, those Canadians shouldn't get to complacent on this.

Pew National Poll: Obama leads 51-43 among likely voters - Democratic Underground


Big deal? What does it mean?

Keep in mind, Obama has 47% automatically, so of the contested voters (the other 53%) he has only gotten 4%

4% goes for Obama? the other 49%??

as they say Obama is beginning this race on 3rd base.

Page 4: 'This Week' Transcript: David Axelrod and Reince Priebus - ABC News

Quote:
Overheard on This Week yesterday morning:

ROBERT REICH: Can I just say something? Because immigration reform is going to be a central issue for this country for the next 20 years, because the Baby Boomers are aging. We have an aging population. The only way we can improve the ratio of people who are working to people who are retired is taking in young immigrants from the rest of the world. And anybody who doesn't realize that and understand this is on the wrong side of history.
Was he supposed to say that? Admit the Welfare State is collapsing, that Medicare and Social Security truly are Ponzi schemes requiring an ever-increasing flow of "investors."

Oh well it'll work, just look at Europe. Mass immigration is working wonders there.
