This is a song about the Presidents. I can think of no better way to spend eleven minutes.
It’s funny and goofy and you get to learn how many Presidents we had named “James”!

FOX “NEWS” PLAN TO MAKE OBAMA A ONE-TERM PRESIDENT
Fox Figures Aggressively Supported GOP Candidates And Organizations
Fox News Figures Supported Republican Candidates And Organizations During Midterms. During the 2009-2010 election cycle, more than 30 Fox News personalities endorsed, raised money, or campaigned for Republican candidates or organizations in more than 600 instances. The Republican support was given to more than 300 different races or party organizations in at least 47 states. [Media Matters, 10/27/12]
Republicans Routinely Touted Fox News In Campaigning. Media Matters found that Republicans routinely touted the Fox News affiliation of their supporters. For example, on his September 13, 2010, Fox News programHannity, host Sean Hannity told North Carolina congressional candidate Ilario Pantano that “you belong in Congress, I’m very impressed.” In an email, Pantano highlighted the Fox News exchange to raise campaign funds. The campaign also issued a press release calling Hannity’s praise a “significant achievement.” [Media Matters, 9/17/10]

If Mitt Romney can’t even speak to the American people without making an ass of himself, imagine how bad he’ll be when he tries to talk to North Korea or Iran.
For all his supposed business competence, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is running a campaign of jaw-dropping incoherence, mixing some of the most dishonest rants from right-wing talk radio with focus-group worries about health care and the economy even if they clash with conservative principles.
You saw this at the Republican National Convention, which was almost fully devoted to gross distortions of President Barack Obama’s positions – like the endless repetition of his out-of-context quote, “You didn’t build that” – combined with complaints that Obama had not intervened enough in the economy to create more jobs, even in contradiction of the GOP’s supposed love of “free markets.”
Now, Romney has pounced on a well-meaning – though ultimately unsuccessful – effort by the U.S. embassy staff in Cairo to tamp down anger caused by an incendiary anti-Muslim video that appeared designed to elicit the kind of violent rage that is now sweeping the Middle East.
Seemingly without regard for the delicate circumstances, Romney issued a statement that transformed the embassy’s criticism of the video into an expression of sympathy by the Obama administration for the protesters who attacked U.S. diplomatic outposts in Egypt and, fatally, in Libya. However, to make his point stick, Romney had to reverse the actual chronology of events.
Here is how the chronology actually went […]
Administrator of Elections Steve Gaddis has decided not to publish a sample ballot in the Polk County News, despite a Tennessee law that requires him do so.
Tennessee Code Annotated 2-12-111 regarding notices of elections states, “(c) The county election commission shall publish, in a newspaper of general circulation in the county, notice of every election, stating the day, time and polling places for the election, not more than ten (10) nor less than three (3) days before the election.”
According to Gaddis, a sample ballot was printed Bradley County’s Cleveland Daily Banner and the Blue Ridge, GA News-Observer. When asked why he he chose not to publish in the Polk County News, Gaddis said, “I just did.” He said he got caught at the last minute and “that’s what I decided to do.”
When pressed for further answer, Gaddis said he was just “really dissastisfied” with the local newspaper. He referenced a recent typo in the paper before hanging up the phone. […]

Tennessee state Sen. Stacey Campfield (R) falsely claimed on Thursday that it was nearly impossible for someone to contract AIDS through heterosexual contact.
“Most people realize that AIDS came from the homosexual community,” he told Michelangelo Signorile, who hosts a radio program on SiriusXM OutQ. “It was one guy screwing a monkey, if I recall correctly, and then having sex with men. It was an airline pilot, if I recall.”
“My understanding is that it is virtually — not completely, but virtually — impossible to contract AIDS through heterosexual sex.”
