Don’t Send a Community Organizer to Do a President’s Job

My fellow Americans —

I’m angry. Not just because the southern coastline of our nation — including Louisiana, which I purchased from Napoleon in the sweetest deal of 1803 — is being destroyed.

Read these pathetic remarks from our president, Barack Obama:

The president also implied that anti-big government types such as tea party activists were being hypocritical on the issue.

“Some of the same folks who have been hollering and saying ‘do something’ are the same folks who, just two or three months ago, were suggesting that government needs to stop doing so much,” Obama said. “Some of the same people who are saying the president needs to show leadership and solve this problem are some of the same folks who, just a few months ago, were saying this guy is trying to engineer a takeover of our society through the federal government that is going to restrict our freedoms.”

So let me get this straight: If I didn’t support the government takeover of the healthcare industry — which I didn’tI’m a hypocrite for expecting the president to show leadership in a crisis?!

SWEET SASSY MOLASSY! Community organizers don’t know how to handle oil spills, do they?

Paul McCartney and Barack Obama

Last weeks jobs report tanked the stock market; the president took weeks to assert control of the oil spill that threatens doom on the Gulf Coast — but at the White House the Gatsby-like parties roll on as if happy days were here again.
