Rick Perry wins at Team Obama’s “For All” meme

posted at 11:31 am on September 22, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

A couple of days old, but I thought it was sufficiently well-played that it merited a post. So, this (kind of deeply off-putting) “For All” sloganeering Team Obama’s got going on, presumably to try and drum up a little Hopenchange-esque enthusiasm?

It seems like the idea is to play off the last “liberty and justice for all” line of our Pledge of Allegiance by writing something that’s important to you on your hand and then putting that over your heart in a display of Democratic solidarity. I guess the point is to be succinct, but so far, most of the submissions seem to consist of pretty airy-fairy topics like “gender equality” and “love” and “choice.” Okay, whatever; neither I nor any of the ladies I know spend their waking hours preoccupied with the woeful shortcoming of gender equality in this country, but I suppose it’s something we want to maintain “for all” (although I would probably choose to write “jobs” or “economic growth” or “cheap energy” or “small government” or something pedestrian like that).

But, hey — you know what we most definitely and inescapably already have, for all? Texas Governor Rick Perry, in one fell swoop, breaks down the situation.

Meme, conquered. Done and done.

Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous — or treasonous in my opinion.” – Gov. Perry

That’s an interesting thought. Here’s something to consider: What if they don’t want enough fuel (bio or otherwise) for 90 million cars and trucks? i.e., this is all deliberately being done to reduce our access to enough fuel and force us into population centers and mass transit to make it easier to control us.

Right now, the media and the administration (but I repeat myself) are pushing the narrative that >8% unemployment is the new norm. If this bunch of marxists gets another term, food lines and fuel rationing will become the new norm.

Remember all the liberals who said that when Palin wrote on her hand it was ‘immature’ or that it was ‘ moronic’ , etc. etc.?

Palin wrote notes salient to an address that she was giving, on the palm of her hand, as a reminder of key points she wished to make that were important to her address, rather than use a prepared text, or use an index card.

The left, chose to write, for lack of a better word, buzz words, on the BACK of their hands, as an advertisement of support for their ideology and a political candidate, and were photographed, most often, then holding their hands over their heart in a sort of pledge,.

*I note, here, that you’ll likely never see a photo of most of them holding their hand over their heart during a pledge to the flag, or during the national anthem.

Now, the only defense that the left can make for this display of outright childishness, and a creepy kind of cult-like behavior, by their peers, is to say ‘Palin did it!’

No. She didn’t.
