Hip-hop vs. Flip-flop

    It’s court the youth vote week on the campaign trail, with the primary focus zeroed in on the student loan debt crisis.
   President Obama spoke on college campuses in North Carolina, Colorado and Iowa about the suddenly hot topic du jour. On each stump, he highlighted the emphasis with a personal touch, that he and the first lady just finished paying off their college loans a mere eight years ago.
   Mitt Romney, meanwhile, waved his magic etch-a-sketch and changed positions by more or less agreeing with Obama’s take on how to deal with the issue.
   Obama took the talking points further when he reached out to college kids with his appearance Tuesday night on Jimmy Fallon’s late night show.
   There was the president “slow-jammin’ ” the news with Fallon (“He’s the POTUS with the most-us.”)
   Not to be outdone sucking up to the youth vote, Romney’s son Tagg (Tagg?) will now be referred to as “Hash-Tagg.”
   Speaking of it being from this moment on, Romney’s speech on Tuesday after sweeping five primaries included the slogan “A Better America Begins Tonight.” It’s a tad snarky and self-serving. Romneyish. Besides, Obama is still in the White House and if America is suddenly better, there’s no reason to evict him.
   Romney did have a choice line in his speech when he slammed Obama with “It’s still the economy, and we’re not stupid.” Had he waited and delivered that line in the first debate with the president, it could’ve sealed the deal for him. As it stands now, the phrase will grow tired and weaker if it is repeated ad nauseum throughout the campaign.
   Major issues (as well as which candidate gets to spend more money on negative advertising) will certainly determine who will win in November. But you can’t rule out who is more likeable, trustworthy and, let’s face it, has the beter catch phrases and/or slogans.
    This presidential election could boil down to Hi-Hop versus Flip-Flop.
    The cool cat versus the aristocrat.
   Obama’s image as Joe Cool is cemented in the American psyche.
   Romney’s image was best defined during the GOP primaries in 2008. That’s when one of his opponents, conservative former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, said that Mitt “looks like the guy who fires you.”
   Cool vs. Cold, for sure. But the general election is just heating up. The forecast calls for scorched Earth.
      Other slogans, quotes and random thoughts of a political nature:
      1. Romney bumper sticker: “Baby on board. Dog on roof.”
      2. Idea for one of Obama’s re-election slogans: “Keep the change.”
      3. Idea for one of Romney’s campaign slogans: “Romney supporters are comMITTed.”
      4. Suggested negative TV commercial jingle for a GOP political ad: “My baloney has a first name it’s O-B-A-M-A.”
      5. Fox News TV ad slogan/jingle supporting George Zimmerman: ” Just like a good Neighborhood Watchdog, ‘Stand Your Ground’ is there.”
      6. “I think, therefore I am not Sarah Palin.”
      7. “If it wasn’t for religion, there would be no guilt.”
      8. Heavenly Tweet of the day: “Enuff. plz stp asking what wood I do.”
      9. “There’s no sex after death. Who knew marriage prepared you for the afterlife.”
      10. You can’t make this stuff up: On Tuesday in Virginia, a man shot his wife and himself at a firearms safety class. “Guns don’t kill people. Irony kills people.”

  4. Anatole France: “An education isn’t how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It’s being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don’t.”

  5. I’m looking to purchase a metal warehouse developing. The wall space and roof are usually dirty and require cleaning. As the structure is sufficient sound, I’m thinking how safe it is to stroll on the top. I had been wondering when all metal roofs are built powerful enough to back up an individual walking upon it.. Regarding other types associated with roofs in cooler climates, building codes specify a load capacity to hold up under snow. Here in Houston, such support will not apply. Because the roof itself is very light, it shouldn’t have to be quite strong to drop off rainfall..
