Its election day, 2014.
Obama: gazing at the moon and stars, gazing back at him
Some people think it unimportant:
The Washington Post may have been first in declaring the coming midterms kind ofand apologies to Seinfeld herean election about nothing.
Stephen Hayes tracked the Seinfeld Election as it made its way through the rest of the supportive Press:
Soon enough this description was popping up everywherethe New Republic, the Los Angeles Times, the Christian Science Monitor, Bloomberg, Politico, and many others. The 2014 Midterms, the Seinfeld Election.
Alas, if only it were true! Unfortunately, per Mr. Hayes, the opposite is the case: its an election about everything:
Not only is this election not about nothing, it is being fought over exactly the kinds of things that ought to determine our elections.
Its about the size and scope of government. Its about the rule of law. Its about the security of the citizenry. Its about competence. Its about integrity. Its about honor.
A good start, butt theres more:
Its about a government that makes promises to those who have defended the country and then fails those veterans, again and again and again. Its about a president who offers soothing reassurances on his sweeping health care reforms and shrugs his shoulders when consumers learn those assurances were fraudulent. Its about government websites that cost billions but dont function and about smart power that isnt very smart. Its about an administration that cares more about ending wars than winning them, and that claims to have decimated an enemy one day only to find that that enemy is still prosecuting its war against us the next. Its about shifting red lines and failed resets. Its about a president who ignores restrictions on his power when they dont suit him and who unilaterally rewrites laws that inconvenience him. Its about a powerful federal agency that targets citizens because of their political beliefs and a White House that claims ignorance of what its agents are up to because government is too vast. In sum, this is an election about a president who promised to restore faith in government and by every measure has done the opposite.
And let me be clear, even Barack agrees that his policies are on the ballot today and thats not nothing.
Yesterday we saw Mr. Goodwins suggestion that people vote exclusively for Republicans; Lady M made a similar effort to offset that bad advice by telling her folks to vote a straight D ticket:
"That's my message to voters. This isn't about Barack, it's not about the person on the ballot, it's about you," Obama told "NewsOne Now" host Roland Martin on TV One. "And for most of the people that we're talking to, a Democratic ticket is the clear ticket that we should be voting on, regardless of who said what or did this. That shouldn't even come into the equation."
So you have your marching orders: lets get out there and weigh in on the election about everything. It would make a great birthday present for former FLOTUS Laura Bush, who is 68 today.
And finally, in other news, a giant shooting star was sighted over Chicago and much of the Eastern United States last night.

Coincidence? I think not.
The blood moon glows over the Goddess of Liberty statue atop the Capitol in Austin, Texas, during a total lunar eclipse
Sometimes you gaze at the moon, sometimes the moon gazes at you. Let Liberty prevail.

“obama gazes at the moon. the moon blushes bashfully.”
There is gazing and then there is the uncomfortable stare of a stalker.
Obama leers at the moon...
Must be a Crescent Moon.
Obama gazes at the moon, what is that bright light in the sky, maybe I will ask reggie
