In Obama's Amerika, It's Groundhog Day All Over Again!
Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 2-2-2013 | MOTUS

Ever since the release of the seminal Groundhog Day movie, February 2 has become synonymous with a type of recurring déjà vu. The movie veers into Nietzsche's eternal recurrence of the same, Camus' Myth of Sisyphus – and even the possibility of man becoming a god-like Superman. Boy, does this have “BHO’s” fingerprints all over it or what?

So I dedicate this Groundhog Day redux to our Glorious (and possibly god-like) Leader and Shadow-Master: without his most transparent administration ever we would not be able to see through the fog of government. Won’t you please join me in enjoying, again, some previous  Groundhog Day celebrations:


From March, 2010:

Starting early this morning; it was Groundhog day all over again. Honestly, I think Big Guy has milked this signing of the Obamacare bill for all it’s worth.(snip)

Signing the Healthcare and Education Bill, March 30, 2010. Note Big Guy’s lavender tie, color coordinated with Nancy’s suit and necklace in a deeper shade of purple.

Signing the Healthcare Bill, March 23, 2010. Here our tie is coordinated with Mini-Me’s and Nancy’s eyes. (read more)

Two years ago Groundhog Day coincided with the “Arab Spring” uprising during which the Egyptians “unfriended” President Mubarak(snip)

(snip) ValJar,mistook an Admiral for a waiter (an honest mistake at a black tie dinner):

You know the old saying “To a hammer, every problem looks like a nail?” Well, it looks like it has a corollary: “To an imperialist, every uniform looks like a waiter.”

Ok, Ok, it’s true. Val did ask a decorated US General to fetch her a glass of wine at a black tie dinner. Butt for goodness sake let’s take all of the circumstances into consideration before we jump to conclusions. For starters, the affair was held at the Alfalfa Club. The Alfalfa Club!? Isn’t that just a little racist? (read more)


And on Groundhog Day of 2011 we commemorated some of Lady M’s attempts to see her shadow:

Allow me to apologize before I begin. We have another historical first to rack up so it’s my dutiful responsibility to report: Yesterday marked the first time ever that a FLOTUS “dropped to give us 25” in a celebrity contest on national daytime television:



(snip)And since Groundhog Day is really more about shadows than the Arab Spring, I thought you might enjoy this groundhog day-esque ode to Big Guy’s shadow, from the occasion of his 2010 Great Asian trip.

Seriously, by the time we got to Japan, we were just a shadow of our former self.



My Shadow

by Robert Lewis Stevenson

I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,

And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.


And that can’t be a good thing.

 Damn! Stop bugging me. Go Away!

Does this Shadow make my ears look big? (Read more)

Well, that’s a wrap for this year’s Groundhog Day re-broadcast. I leave you with this report directly from Punxsutawney:

groundhog day again

Extended Forecast: Cloudy with a very slight chance of meatballs, as ground beef hit an all-time high of $3.82 a pound last week.

And since it is Groundhog Day, here’s a replay from Phil, covering our first, second historic Inauguration of BHO:

Since the country is upside down; you know, rewarding criminals and punishing law-abiding citizens, I refer to this country as Acirema (America spelled backwards).
