I suppose we all thought the Obama reelection effort had jumped the shark when we had Lena Dunham telling us all about how great our "first time" (voting, that is) would be with Obama.
But no. This is worse. So, so much worse.
Courtesy of Allahpundit over at Hot Air, here's a creepy video of children singing about the alleged horrors of a Romney presidency:
A sampling of the lyrics:
Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea
We don't have to pay for freeways!
Our schools are good enough
Give us endless wars
On foreign shores
And lots of Chinese stuff
It's not actually from the Obama campaign, but it's certainly using the same messaging that POTUS has been pushing. As AP points out, this is sort of reminiscent of videos like this or this, except that unlike those two (equally as creepy) clips, there's no "lending a hand" or "spreading happiness and freedom." We're blaming Mom and Dad for voting for Romney, and thereby killing Big Bird and a whole lot of polar bears.
Yet it's indicative of the Obama 2012 message: vote for me because the other guy will literally murder people and animals. Only, from the mouths of babes, it's decidedly more icky. Heck, these children are too young to understand half of the stuff they're singing about. At least hope and change and peace and love were generic enough concepts that even a five-year-old can knowingly support. This is just disturbing.
