“If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.” – President Barack Obama on NBC’s “Today,” February 2, 2009.
“Republican voters, if you ask them about my particular policy positions, often agree with me.” – President Barack Obama in PARADE Magazine, August 31, 2012.
I don’t agree with him on much of anything, but then, I actually love America, and understand American Exceptionalism. That said, I very much agreed with his first quote. Too bad he reneged on our agreement. Still, when you have nothing to offer but blame and excuses, rather than results, I can see where you might be so addled that you think that these are adequate bases for renewal of your contract. However, I think the American people are about to hand you your pink slip. Don’t view it as a setback, Mr. President. You didn’t really like the job anyway, and now you can concentrate all of your attention on to your golf game and your third memoir, Car Crash: How I Destroyed A Great Economic Engine While Blaming Those Who Actually Know How To Drive. That is, of course, if Bombing Billy Ayers will return your calls. We know that writing is hard and I’m sure he has plenty of flags to step on while reliving the glory days of blowing up government buildings in his head.
So on this Laborless Labor Day, I can think of no better salute to a thin-skinned and ineffective man, who repeatedly has demonstrated a callous disregard to what the office requires, and an inability to man up and take responsibility for his own failures. Today, on Empty Chair Day 2012, millions of Americans will reproduce this view from the Oval Office on their own front lawns, just like I am.
