    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    I think that America moving forward is the wrong idea. That means Progressivism.

    America needs to take a few hundred steps backward.....like the constitution intended.

    Moving forward is not always the best direction one can travel.

    Reminds me of a stupid and mindless slogan: Hope and Change. All change is not good. Changing from good to bad like O Blah Blah wants is bad for America no matter how the DIMS package it.

    Proglodytes are backward looking progressives. They are seeking a model of economic and social policies that was in vogue in 1900 and has since been discredited. Moving America forward means moving us away from progressivism and towards free markets.

    I'd like to hear this in Enlish. Looks like an anti-idiot ad more than a don't vote ad.

    Except they aren't saying vote for Republicans or vote for who you believe in or any of that. they are saying "don't vote" because Republicans know latinos are more likely to vote Democrat. so just tell them not to vote in spanish.

    that's desperation. if you can't convince them on issues, just get them to disenfranchise themselves.
