President Nero.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 7:32 pm

OK, we have Iran shooting off missiles that can hit Israel and American bases in the Gulf. We have The One’s Administration, having already seized a major portion of the auto and banking industries, engaging in a full-court press to seize one sixth of the U.S. economy in the name of socialized medicine universal health care, and we have the commander on the ground in Afghanistan (appointed by The One and with whom The One has spoken with one time) asking for more troops.

In some alternate universe perhaps it makes sense that, at this time, The One and his wife will be winging off to Denmark – yes, Den-farookin’-mark — to pitch Chicago as the next Olympic venue.

I got to thinking about other things The One might do while the world crumbles around him, rather than spending just a teeeeeeny bit of time actually doing the job of being the President:

A get-together with Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro and Vladimir Putin to discuss the arrangements for the May Day Celebration next year on the South Lawn.

An audition for a gig with “Dancing with the Stars.” I figure he’s a lock.

A trip to visit Blago to remind him what’s in it for him to keep his fat mouth shut.

The rearranging the sock drawers in the White House.

A trip to England to ask how much the Queen loved the iPod and really loved His speeches.

A meeting with congressional leaders to discuss the government takeover of the fast-food chains in order to allow a Fast-Food Public Option in order to stimulate competition and lower the price of a Big Mac.

A meeting the with the NEA architects to discuss plans for the Barack Hussein Obama Tabernacle and Library.

The videotaping of a reality program entitled, “A Week with the Most Awesome First Family EVER” to be run on the networks in prime time and 24/7 on NPR.

Every day with this guy brings a brand-spanking-new kick in the stindeens. I don’t know how much more of this crap I can take.


  1. You could use a stiff drink.

  2. Don’t worry, Jimbo. The UN is going to send the Iranians a very harshly-worded letter.

  5. You’re wrong on the fast food thing. The only thing they’ll be talking about there is how to generate more tax revenue from it to fund socialized medicine universal health care.

  6. And, of course, nary a moment to meet with the commanders on the ground. Someone noted elsewhere, the One spet mre time ironing out that little police vs professor problem in Cmabridge than he has in meeting with the man in charge of the war in Afgahnistan.

  7. Well, Jimbo… you know he works sooooo HARD. I think he needs another vacay. He’s only had 3 or 4 since he took office.

    After all if you’re gonna be the Prez you now have a free ticket to see the world – right?

    And heaven knows what might happen if he doesn’t keep the right peeps in Illinois happy and well oiled with money from this Olympic thing… why ANYONE could start to talk. Mustn’t let that happen. No way.

  8. Joated,

    Someone else pointed out that The One has spent more time with David Letterman and Jay Leno than he has with his commander on the ground in Afghanistan.

    You really can’t make this shit up.

  9. We don’t have a President, we have a Rock Star. I keep singing the melody, “So What, I’m a Rock Star…” from Pink.
