"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Gay marriage.   Contraception.   Occupy Wall Street.  Trayvon Martin.   Killing bin Laden.   What do all of these "themes" of Obama's re-election campaign have in common?

We're not talking about the economy.   And gas prices.   And the debt.   And unemployment.

Divide, distract, disrupt, dissemble.   Those are the mantras of Obama '12.
