Dr Bob: “Is everything I say public?”

Dear Dr. Bob,

As a candidate, it seems like there is nothing I can say or do ‘privately.’ Aren’t there laws against infringing on my privacy rights so that I can talk frankly with my closest advisors or supporters?

Mr. Baseball Glove


Dear “Glove” — wink, wink,

Oh you dear, clueless man…

I’m sure that at least one of your staffers has something called a “cell phone” or “mobile phone.” Ask them to show you how they can take photographs and record video on their phones. Then they can “upload” the photos, video and/or audio to the Internet so that the entire world has access to what you thought were private moments.

Yes, its that easy now.

And, yes, even those among the 47% are carrying these devices.

Which brings me to the second point you should consider: Every time you set foot inside a catered affair, you are surrounded by people who are serving lunch or dinner, mixing drinks and cleaning up. They are all members of the 47%, typically union members to boot. They don’t like you.

Hope that helps.

Dr. Bob
