The American Academy of Pediatrics would like to correct false statements made in the Republican presidential campaign that HPV vaccine is dangerous and can cause mental retardation," the American Academy of Pediatrics said in a statement Tuesday.

"There is absolutely no scientific validity to this statement. Since the vaccine has been introduced, more than 35 million doses have been administered, and it has an excellent safety record," the academy's release said.


But on the Today show Tuesday morning, Bachmann went further, telling Matt Lauer, that a mother had approached her after the debate to recount the problems her daughter had after being vaccinated against HPV:

She told me that her little daughter took that vaccine, that injection. And she suffered from mental retardation thereafter.


Reporter: "And what did you say to her?"

Michelle: "I said 'Not now, Mom, I'm busy.' "

As it is, we seem to regard it as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has taken one side or the other. We regard it (in other words) as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has contrived to reach the object of his reasoning. We call a man a bigot or a slave of dogma because he is a thinker who has thought thoroughly and to a definite end.

President Confident of Re-election
By John Semmens

Despite unanimous polling trends showing increasing dissatisfaction with his job performance, President Obama says he’s confident he’ll come out on top after the ballots are counted in November 2012.

“In 2008 I was a virtual nobody,” Obama recalled. “Now I’m the president. Just being the president gives you a big leg up on all the up-and-coming nobodies who want to take your place. Consequently, I’d have to say that the odds of me being re-elected are much higher than the odds of me being elected in the first place.”

The president boasted that “my ideas are the key. I have more of them than anyone I know. Just ask my staff. For every idea we’ve tried that hasn’t worked there are at least a dozen more waiting in line for their turn. I think voters will appreciate my intellectual fertility compared to the GOP’s simplistic message.”

Obama advisor David Axelrod echoed the President’s confidence. “The lower taxes/less government mantra that the Republicans are trying to sell doesn’t resonate with the average American,” Axelrod contended. “Voters want a government that cares enough to try. I mean, isn’t it better to be in the barrel with the guy who has the nerve to tackle Niagara Falls than to be ‘nay-saying’ from the sidelines?”

“Plus, let’s not overlook the considerable advantages that incumbency has for President Obama,” Axelrod added. “For example, his recent Executive Order granting amnesty to illegal immigrants gives him a lock on the Hispanic vote. And he’s got more than a year to further tilt the playing field in his favor.”

With an political eye to the 2012 U.S. Presidential elections, a bold move has been made by the current President:

President Obama Converts to Judaism to Secure Jewish Vote for 2012
(excerpt)
"WASHINGTON – In a stunning move that caught the entire White House by surprise, President Barack (Baruch) Obama announced today he will be converting to Judaism.

Inside sources indicate that Obama has been contemplating this shift for some time, since confidence in the President among Jews has eroded greatly in recent months. With an eye towards the 2012 elections, this is certain to shore up his electoral base. Critics, however, may certainly view this with some skepticism.

“I was born Muslim, became a Christian, and now will become Jew – it is part of my evolution,” stated President Obama. “Now I can better appreciate the trials and tribulations of ‘my people’. I was the first African-American President, and now I am the first Jewish President."
