Muppets to Help Obama?

Barack Obama launched his bid for re-election over the weekend. In a web video on his site BarackObama.com, the President announced his candidacy for both the Democratic Party nomination and the the presidency. While the announcement was short on policy, it did describe the process of organizing a campaign. Ina folksy manner, activities such as opening offices, unpacking boxes and setting up furniture were listed.

One thing missing so far in the the Obama re-election is a signature campaign song. So it's up to you America, to help the President find that one particular tune that sums up Obama's vision, spirit and goals (or lack there of). Some suggestions include:
  • Seven Nation Army by White Stripes: Hard-pounding tune signals party's unshakable commitment to multilateralism. (Good campaign song)
  • Dazed and Confused by Led Zeppelin: With Obama's flip-flops on Guantanamo Bay, the economy and election reform, Americans could hardly be blamed for not knowing where he stands on key issues. (Bad campaign song)
  • Do That To Me One More Time by The Captain & Tennille: Catchy tune but liable to misinterpretation.
  • Hot for Teacher by Van Halen: The democrats questionable level of support for education across the country, especially in Wisconsin could dredge up more negative feelings with this song.
  • It Isn't Easy Being Green by Kermit the Frog: A bold choice to just forget the entire first term and campaign solely on the environment.

I originally voted for this guy. Thought it would be good for America and finally squash the racial divide.

Regretted it ever since.

Biggest waste of 4 years in history.

Isn't there some song that says "I was handed a pile of crap and I've just made it worse." That would get my vote.

Ed: It's not over yet. He still has a year and a half to turn things around, or really mess them up.

Debbie: I believe you just described every song written for Lady Gaga.

The Sapphire cover was rumored for the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus last year but problems with the supplier likely led to scrapping that feature. The Apple Watch features a Sapphire screen on the two more expensive models.
