WHO paid for the campaign T-shirts given away at last night's mock memorial?
Who paid for the marketing/PR firm that created the logo/design? The Obama White House? (Is that a silly question?)
Was it coordinated with/approved by the Obama White House?
Whose idea was it to come up with the not-so-subtle Obama 2012 campaign slogan? And who dreamed it up -- "Together We Thrive"? THRIVE? A subtle nod to an "improving" economy?
Radio show host Tammy Bruce is a mensch. I met her backstage in Wilmington, DE at a Tea Party Express rally, where we hung out together in the bright but cold late October (Halloween eve) day, when she literally took the coat off her back so I could wear it against the chill.
How many people -- "celebrities" -- do you know who would remove their coat to warm a stranger? That's Tammy.
Last night during the Tucson "Memorial/campaign/thrive together pep rally cum Academy Awards ceremony", I was on Twitter, occasionally jumping into the river of tweets that were rushing by, most of them expressing what I was thinking about the circus-like event unfolding at the U of AZ.
I found myself agreeing with Tammy's tweets and later went by her site to read her overall assessment of a not-so-somber memorial event marked with whoops, hollers, whistles, applause, and generally inappropriate behavior by an arena filled with students whose parents evidently have been derelict in their duty to teach their offspring how to behave appropriately in certain circumstances.
Tammy's take nailed it. So, rather than writing my own observations, I'll just point you to her site and say "What Tammy said". This'll get you started:
Well, the Tucson Tragedy Memorial Obama Rally was, were told, really supposed to be a Pep Unity Rally, so they meant all that cheering and campaign-like atmosphere. Except for Governor Jan Brewer who was booed by the Unified, Peppy crowd. Only certain people get the Unity, you see. The branding commenced, the free t-shirts were handed out, and concessions were no doubt enjoyed. Funny, I dont think Im the only one who remembers Obama BSing and manipulating his way through the 2008 election, and I just saw it happen again tonight. And just like in 2007 and 2008 quite a number of conservatives thought the speech was just fabulous. It certainly is a stark reminder of how the Dumb Bastard got elected in the first place.
. . . . .
Too bad for BO that America was told to expect a memorial.
I have enormous respect for Tammy Bruce. She found her way back from the Feminist wilderness by dint of her own intellectual openness honesty.
Of course, the Left hates her.
That is: “...her own intellectual openness and honesty”.
"In Yiddish (from which the word has migrated as a loanword into American English), mensch roughly means "a good person." A mensch is a particularly good person, like "a stand-up guy," a person with the qualities one would hope for in a dear friend or trusted colleague. Mentschlekhkeyt (Yiddish: מענטשלעכקייט, German: Menschlichkeit) are the properties which make one a mensch."
I’m not positive, but even though University of AZ is a private institution, they do receive public monies, and thus, are accountable in some ways to regulations regarding political rallies. Plus, they have donors and if I was a donor, I’d be pretty upset with what happened.
BUMP for Tammy Bruce, a courageous voice out there.
We paid for the shirts. We pay more and more everyday Obama is in office.
Yes, I think the t-shirts, logo, theme, and the programs “get yer programs! Right here”
All came straight from the White House.
Notice all of the “conservastive” commentators fall right in line??
Her site is down now. I imagine it is liberals doing it, considering she is one of the few voices not praising the Tuscon Massacre Fun Fair Tucson Mourns for the Democrats ans Salutes Our Dear Leader Obama Who Teaches Us How To Live and Love, Civilly, While Faux Tearing Up and Biting His Lip, Together We Thrive, We Be Thrivin’, Thive-In 2011... http://tammybruce.com
Last night I was trying to be objective, I just sat back with hubby and we listened. Everything was fine, except the constant clapping, something a bit off about that. This is a national tragedy brought on by a mad man. I always want to give the other person the benefit of the doubt. But, there was something really creepy about the bible readings last night. Just so you know, I’m a blood bought Spirit filled Christian who loves the word of God. But, that was just creepy.
Oh I like that name for it. The Tucson Massacre Fun Fair
This was the kick off to his 2012 re-election campaign.
U of A is a public school. Their website reads “Official site of the four-year public research university located in Tucson, AZ. “
I hope it's as successful for the DemocRATS as the Wellstone memorial was.
