President Admits He Sometimes Forgets the Magnitude of the Recession
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 11 May 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 05/11/2012 9:19:42 PM PDT by John Semmens

President Obama asked voters to forgive him if he sometimes fails to feel their pain over lost employment, foreclosed homes, and mounting personal debt.

“I've led kind of a sheltered life,” the President admitted. “I went to private schools when I was young. I had a scholarship to go to college. I never really had to worry about working to pay my own way. Now, of course, as President, I live in a big house with dozens of servants. I have my own jumbo jet to fly me wherever I want. So, you can see how it might be hard for me to relate to the common people.”

Obama said he hoped that voters wouldn't forget that “the recession is not my fault. It started before I got here. I've done everything I could to try to correct the problem. What other president has spent as much to try to heal the economy? I mean, how much more generous could I have been?”

For those skeptical about the prospect of adults dancing and cheering for vegetables, Kass pointed out that “they do it in China.”

LOL! Nice one, John.

Satire cuts deep and that little dash of truth means the wound never really heals.

What's the difference.

One satanic deluded leader or another.

Maybe we can make a connection between him and his aunt’s “tears of abuse” and turn it into closet “gayness”.

These are fun but should carry a (Satire Alert) in the title. Today it it too easy to believe ANYTHING coming from this administration. Don’t want our folks throwing satire “quotes” around as facts.

Memo from a commoner: Hey Bozo, that jumbo jet isn’t yours, and neither is the United States Military. These are two revealing comments you made recently that should give all legal and moral Americans pause if they were planning to vote for you.

We want the libtards who troll here to read it and maybe ‘think’ a little before they see it is what it is.
