So you know how all the desperate pretend journalists at Fox News screamed and cried over President Obama indoctrinating our children a few years back (they’ve been doing this crap for almost four years now)? Well, anyone with a functioning brain cell knows that President Obama isn’t going to make your children start reading a little red book or inject socialism into their water fountain supply. It can be said that exploiting children is an American favorite pastime. But Republicans have made it so effortless as of late. First, we had Fox & Friends use those two little lemonade stand girls (you know, actual entrepreneurs who understand the market fundamentals) in their blind crusade to destroy the context of President Obama’s ”You didn’t build that” speech. The tots were clearly prepped and carefully coached by their parents to parrot the tea party talking points, which ironically is the same technique used with Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann.
In the latest round of Tea Party parents hiding their ugliness by using their kids as political props to propagate their insipid, baseless views is six-year old, Isaac Anthony. Instead of watching Sponge Bob and eating HFCS, Little Issac stars in a crappy video in which the brainwashed tot recites 10 reasons not to vote for Obama, all of which are the hilariously moronic fiction that has been debunked as much as Republican Vietnam deferments. Not even the sad, obnoxious failures from the horribly misbegotten Dance Moms reality show engage in this type of child abuse.
