A. "just eye candy" B. "just an Community Organizer" C "just the worst president in history" ............................................................ And really only B and C are relevant and accurate. That's what the American people should be concerned about on election day.

As many Americans know by now, President Obama characterized himself as "just eye candy" during his guest slot on "The View."  Frankly, it was a triumph of artistic self-description.

The urban dictionary defines "eye candy" as "[s]omething purely aesthetically pleasing."   And indeed, the President is an attractive man.  But that's about it.  Hence the aptness of the description.

Stereotypically, "eye candy" has often been a term used to designate a pretty but brainless younger woman on the arm of a rich or powerful older man -- something to be admired as superficially pleasing, but little more.  That's precisely what we've got...
