In 2008, Democrats made a choice between Barack Obama....

...and Hillary Clinton

Following a hard-won primary victory, Barack Obama, in his steadfast rejection of partisanship, gave us this:

Once the dynamic duo defeated Get-Off-My-Lawns and the Half-Baked Alaskan in the general...

They added this invaluable player to the table:

Obama, Hillary Clinton Named ‘Most Admired’ in Gallup Poll

However, this election, a new player has entered the game, a man more dangerous than Get-Off-My-Lawns and the Half-Baked Alaskan combined:

Why is Smirk more dangerous?  Because at least McCain and Palin had ties to the human species.

Unfortunately, Smirk's genetic origins are highly questionable.  

Go below the squiggle to see why Smirk is wrong for America. Not just because his name is Smirk, and not just because he quite possibly might be a robot, but because, when it comes down to it, the man is just a soulless jerk.

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. --Martin Luther King, Jr.
Dear Friends, while Team Obama skillfully and compassionately dealt with the fallout of an international tragedy.....

And based on the race-baiting attack ads he's still running, he obviously believes:

It's after three a.m. and Smirk answered the phone.  Guess what he said?

The OBVIOUS choice in November is clear.

The OBVIOUS MISTAKE is even clearer:

A man is called selfish not for pursuing his own good, but for neglecting his neighbor's. ---Richard Whately
Leadership is a privilege to better the lives of others. It is not an opportunity to satisfy personal greed. ---Mwai Kibaki
Before the throne of the Almighty, man will be judged not by his acts but by his intentions. For God alone reads our hearts. ---Mahatma Gandhi
A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned how to walk forward. ---Franklin D. Roosevelt
The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness. ---John Kenneth Galbraith
Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential. ---Barack Obama

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
