    I think Maureen Dowd makes some very good points in her latest piece...

    Dreaming of a Superhero

    By MAUREEN DOWD


    She sums it up nicely, I think...

    Give it a read..

    from the article:
    "The president who started off with such dazzle now seems incapable of stimulating either the economy or the voters. His campaign is offering Obama 2012 car magnets for a donation of $10; cat collars reading “I Meow for Michelle” for $12; an Obama grill spatula for $40, and discounted hoodies and T-shirts. How the mighty have fallen."

    Ouch!!

    Yeah ouch.

    I like Dowd, I don't always agree with her perspective, but I think she tries to call 'em as she sees 'em.

    Obama peddling .25 cent magnets (no doubt made in China) for $12 and...WTF?... cat collars for campaign donations? You gotta laugh.
