President Obama: The dog ate my economy

by editor on June 9, 2011

Someone once said that success has a thousand fathers while failure is an orphan. But when the prodigy in question is today’s rotten economy, President Obama sees more sperm donors than there were unread pages in his health care bill.

President Obama should look this guilty every time he appears in public

President Obama is pointing to problems in Japan and Europe as challenges for the U.S. economy, placing some blame on events abroad for a domestic recovery that is showing signs of slowing down.

…U.S. unemployment rose to 9.1 percent, up from 9.0 percent in April.

That bump is a political challenge for the president, whose re-election in 2012 may depend on his ability to convince voters that his economic policies have been successful.

We concur. For some reason, convincing folks policies are successful is much harder when those policies are failures. Go figure. Since the “Bush’s fault” meme is getting old, Obama has turned to “Casablanca’s” Captain Renault: “Round up some NEW usual suspects”…

“Lately, it’s high gas prices, the earthquake in Japan, and unease about the European fiscal situation. That will happen from time to time. There will be bumps on the road to recovery.”

The bumps he alluded to are called “Obamacare”, “stimulus” and “excessive regulations” to name a few. And those high gas prices are partially because he feels about the domestic oil industry the way Khruschchev felt about capitalism: “We will bury you.”

If the Bump-In-Chief wishes to find the real culprit, he should consider Pogo’s line, “We have met the enemy and he is us!”

Why Coddy, old man, so good to see you still here, o pardon the informality! Glad these Republican types haven’t run you off. Looks like your Bureau is keeping you in your driver and Mercedes, at least, thank goodness for small favors, what? Believe me, it’s dreadful having to drive for yourself AND dispense your own gasoline, how plebian!

Anyway, jolly good show, keep up the good work around here and make sure these upstarts know their place! Hope to see you at the opera, will you be there? It’s Wagner’s “Valkyrie”; a gutsy new production funded by Arts of course. It casts all little people of color and is sung in Tasman Warlpiri. Just brilliant, eh?

Ta-ta!

Of course you will see me at the opera! I have so much expendable income at the present moment. And I like fat chicks. Pardon. Obese female songbirds.

How Barack Obama is going to get re-elected:

1. Pay everyone in the United States a $500.00 stimulus paycheck.

2. Use Acorn to its fullest to get dead and unregistored people to vote.

3. Promise more jobs and hiring immediately after being elected.

If America buys into this BS, we are a doomed nation!

Remember all those outlandish internet rumors how if we elected a far left communist with no experience and a very questionable past would be disastrous for the USA?

Turns out those rumors have proved to be seriously understated.

The Bastard-In-Chief is incapable of feeling guilt, he’s doing the PEOPLE’S bidness by binding up this evil, salatious, CAPITAListic, POS nation that steals the world’s wealth and WE wants US some! He and his allies are the enemies of life and we must get him out of office before the next election cycle! He’s not qualified to be POTUS and I blame the STATE MEDIA for him being there in the first place!

It is a well-established, consensual scientific fact(DON’T YOU DARE EVEN THINK ABOUT ARGUING THIS POINT, YOU RIGHT WING LOONS!!!) that Global Warming is 100% responsible for our current economic woes. But, of course, poverty is good for what ails Auntie Gaia, so she’ll be all better soon. Us, maybe not so much, but what can you do?

That dog is cute… Obama ain’t. He would never manage an ashamed or embarrassed look ever.

He’s complaining about the recurring nature of non-recurring events.

Smarterest president ever has never heard the phrase: “What goes around comes around.”

…and he’s pushing it around himself. Looking forward to him reaping his own karma. Karma here is defined as sh*tting in his own bathtub.

A classic sign of narcissism, Mr. President: blame others for failure.

Ruben, you called him “Mr. President”. For some reason it makes me laugh-gallows humor perhaps.

“I define wealthy Americans as anyone who makes slightly more than me.”
Ha! LMAO! – Don’t we all!

I guess that makes just about everyone rich?

As a well-paid government employee I have not felt the ravages of the so-called “recession” or “depression.”
However, I believe this recession could end tomorrow if the government would simply raise taxes on wealthy Americans. I define wealthy Americans as anyone who makes slightly more than me.
By raising taxes on people who make more money than me, we will be able to provide needed government services such as communal drumming symposia and carbon emission board games.

Your exagerated name indicates that this could be a joke… not 100% is this a joke?

Sven Waring

I am not sure what you mean by exaggerated name. Does Reginald Coddington Farhnsworth sound made up? I imagine you would have a similar issue with my father, Jorge Lenin Marx Engels Fahrnsworth, III?
I never joke about two things: death and taxes. Three: Weiners.
