Obama Disappointments

Among the people I’ve made the acquaintance in cardio rehab is a rambunctious old Italian named Joe. He is way past retirement age, has a heart condition, but still works at the family butcher shop. I don’t know much about him other than he is a veteran of the Korean War and he keeps a gun in every room in his house. Guess where his political leanings are?

Anyway, he taunts me endlessly about my Democratic registration and my respect for Barack Obama. So, in the interest of being fair and balanced, I will present a short list of things Obama has done or not done which has disappointed me. Joe, this is for you.

1. No verifiable evidence that he has walked on water yet!

2. That he hasn’t behaved like the liberal Democrat which many people believe he is and enacted some common sense gun control laws that will reduce gun violence in this country while not trampling on people’s rights. Seriously, conservative Republicans act he like wants to round up all the guns in the country. Guess what? It hasn’t happened yet and it will never happen during his administration, even if he does have a capital “D” after his name. I’m sure he’ll agree gun violence is a big problem, but right now he has bigger fish to fry!

3. That he hasn’t parted the waters of the Gulf of Mexico to make oil collection from the BP oil spill more manageable.

4. That he hasn’t used his FDR “New Deal” Commemorative Magic Wand to fix the economy.

5. That he hasn’t tranquilized Rush Limbaugh and transported him to someplace he would feel comfortable: a tax free utopia that has no socialist programs like welfare, unemployment insurance, or free health care, namely Mexico!

6. That he hasn’t lined up executives from Wall Street against the wall for a 21 gun salute...at their chests!

7. He hasn’t tranquilized Sarah Palin, transported her back to Alaska, and released her into the wild.

8. He hasn’t told Fox News where to go!

9. He hasn’t tranquilized Sarah Palin, transported her to my house, and released her into the wilds of my bedroom...

(EDITOR’S NOTE: Okaaay...we see where this is going and, quite frankly, we are repulsed and reviled by the direction this blog entry has taken. We have taken the unusual – but we believe necessary – step of presenting this entry to the National Board of Bloggers for possible disciplinary action. The board has determined that arteejee should serve a suspension lasting not longer than one week. We apologize to the fans of arteejee – all 12 of you – for any inconvenience this may cause.)

(Thank you for reading. Please remember I’ll be back!)

Especially liked # 5, and would put Glenn Beck in the caboose of that transport. However, #9 indeed clearly demonstrated the stupidity described in one of your previous posts.
