Obama Scrapes the Bottom of the Barrel


Pages: 1 2

Last week, President Obama hit rock bottom with his re-election campaign. Recognizing that having created a slag heap of failed polices, he now has one asset—residual personal popularity– his re-election team decided to move into exploitation mode.

First, they sent an email from Michelle, Barack’s wife, explaining:

For the first 10 years of our marriage, Barack and I lived in an apartment in my hometown of Chicago.

The winters there can be pretty harsh, but no matter how snowy or icy it got, Barack would head out into the cold — shovel in hand — to dig my car out before I went to work.

In all our years of marriage, he’s always looked out for me. Now, I see that same commitment every day to you and to this country.

Give him money because he once shoveled snow?  Ridiculous.  We’re supposed to believe that Obama has looked out for us the same way he looked out for his wife?  Come on!  We are supposed to be his boss, not a spouse.  If we order him to shovel political snow, he’s supposed to do it – not as a favor, or out of love, but because that’s the role of the Chief Executive, who is the servant of the American voter.

As if that weren’t enough, the Obama campaign website decided on Friday to open up an Obama Event Registry. Here’s how they pitched it:

Got a birthday, anniversary, or wedding coming up?

Let your friends know how important this election is to you—register with Obama 2012, and ask for a donation in lieu of a gift. It’s a great way to support the President on your big day. Plus, it’s a gift that we can all appreciate—and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl.

Setting up and sharing your registry page is easy—so get started today.

That honeymoon you wanted to take with your spouse? Forget about it, you selfish pig. Give the greatest gift of all: a donation to a failing president who will bankrupt your future children.

    "Goes a lot further than a Gravy Bowl"? Making, marketing, distributing and selling "Gravy Bowls" is a real job. Taken together, real jobs have meaning for society. When you buy a "Gravy Bowl", you are helping society function.

    "Goes a lot further than a Gravy Bowl"?? Making, marketing, distrubting and selling "Gravy Bowls" represents a number of real jobs. Taken together, these real jobs have dignity and add meaning to society. You are helping society function when you buy a "Gravy Bowl". In a healthy, free society, these types of purchases have more meaning than a campaign contribution.

  • Anamah

    I will ask Obama to let the shovel and stop digging for us. Then to use his hands to take his lugagge, his nice family, open the doors to leave the W.H. and go back to his little apartment in Chicago…

      right on !!!!!

    It's worse than the happy couple giving to Obama directly – he's suggesting that the bride and groom guilt their friends and relatives, who may detest Obama, into giving. Nice way to get around the "I've already maxed out my campaign giving levels" – use the registry to tap into a whole new bunch.

    Nice.

    Not.

  • oldtimer

    Tell Michele to give us the shovel so we can dig our way out of this BS.

  • Bob

    Maybe as the election cycle moves on he can start accepting Food Stamps and his constituents can send him their balance on their EBT cards also……….. Don’t put it past them!!!!!!

  • davarino

    Obama can be the first president to have his picture put on the food stamp.

    Has Moochie, that fat bottomed media wh0re started checking out Chicago schools (public, not private or charter) for their return? I'd suggest she get started now. Mooch, the girls, and bo (the dog) can head there in September so the girls won't have to change schools in the middle of the year. Then Stinky (-bo) can follow in January.

    So Obama's snow job now covers the entire Nation and we pray for the sunshine to
    return, may those frozen brains thaw out and reality return to America, it will probably
    be a cold day in hell before it does………………….William

    I cannot wait to vote this man out of office.

  • Johncdavidson

    Unfortunately, those of us that lost our lifesavings to people like him find it never can be repaired with a smile.

    Scraping the bottom of the barrel was the day that the American people voted this phony into office as the President of the United States and Michele as first dog, er I mean First Lady.

  • BLJ

    I bet the liitle sissy couldn't shovel snow the correct way. This whole "I am a Chicagoan" guy is another myth. This phony claims to be a die-hard White Sox fan yet is totally clueless about the team and it's history. Him and the Mrs can go pound sand.

  • mlcblog

    I got one from them the other day (yes, I have some kind of morbid fascination with being on their email list) where Michelle is saying (oh, so heart-wrenching) that could be the last of the White House dinners because they are out of money. Poor, poor, poor, so send money.

      She can do like the DEA did in the 1970s. When DEA offices hit the ceiling on their gasoline budgets, why look: See all the money still left in the office's car rental budget. Just rent a car 'cause the gasoline used is paid/included in the car rental bill. So a $20 trip turns into a $200 trip. In Moochie's case, just fire up Air Force One and go get the money (using the DOD credit card).

      The White House dinners will certainly continue (Barack likes that Kobe beef). But those celebrity dinners where raffle winners get to mingle with Parker and Wintour are out. Just too embarrassing. (And just wait until the "winners" discover they have to pay taxes based on the value of their good fortune.)

    "OBAMA'S ONLY SHOVEL READY JOB."

    Picture a HERD OF BULLS and next to them is a gas station called "Obama's Full'a Bull" but instead of gas pumps, there is a huge pile of BULL SH!T with Obama shoveling the BS into the a car's gas tank. The car is loaded with a family with suitcases piled on top of it. The License Plate is "BRNNKNYA."

    CAPTION READS: "If only cars could run on BIO-BULLSH!T SINCE THAT IS SOMETHING OBAMA HAS PLENTY OF!"

    RE: "Obama Scrapes the Bottom of the Barrel…."

    …and, First Woman Michelle says: "Oh-h-h-h! Bigger circles, baby!"

  • Raymond in DC

    This goes way beyond a cult of personality. Obama is now embedding himself in our private lives. He claims us as his "sons", while Michelle wants us to treat him as "husband". Any time now he'll expect us all to treat him as the country's "Great Father".

  • suz

    If he's my husband, I want alimony.

  • Schlomotion

    Ben Shapiro is angry that Obama won't shovel Israel's political snow?

  • Ghostwriter

    Excluding Schlockmotion's usual idiotic and anti-Jewish comments,the shovel is a perfect metaphor for this administration. Unfortunately,they don't know when to STOP using it and try and get themselves out of the proverbial hole they've dug for everyone.

  • lizaz

    So why wasn't HE going to work????

  • Western Spirit

    obama hasn't quit shoveling, a snow job was how he got elected.
