The #OVISB (oh-VIZ-bee) Game - Tuesday's Version

“Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.” – Japanese Proverb

Given the popularity of last Friday’s post, let’s have some fun this week on Twitter. We’ll call it the “Obama’s Vision is So Bad” (or #OVISB) game. All you need to play is a good sense of humor. Here’s a couple simple rules:

1) No profanity or other forms of nastiness – don’t take us off message; and,

2) No meanness – leave the red meat for the convention.

We want jokes the general public will laugh? Why? Because all great humor contains a kernel of truth and, more important, we want as many people to laugh at these jokes as possible – even Democrats!

To make it easier, each day we’ll pick a theme. Today’s theme is “Hope.” To play, just start each tweet with “#OVISB” and write your punch-line. Here are a few examples to get your creative juices flowing:

Theme: “Hope”
