Obama Tightrope Act: “I'm up in the spotlight, oh does it feel right”
Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 6-24-2013 | MOTUS

Did you catch Big Guy’s high wire act over the Grand Canyon last night?




Okay, you caught me: that’s Nik Wallenda.


“Tight Rope”: Leon Russell

BO’s not really a high wire artist, although he does play one on television regularly. Take, for example, gay marriage where he “straddled the fence” so-to-speak right up until the moment in the campaign where he discovered he was for it after having been against it.



Or Syria, where it looked like the bright red line would give us plenty of turf to walk lightly  while waiting for reinforcements.

Unfortunately the reinforcements came from Russia and Iran, rendering our red wire a little less stable than we normally like.

And of course there are all of those Campaign promises that we need to constantly tread ever so carefully (in alphabetical order): the debt, economy, education, energy, entitlements, gay rights, global warning, gun control, health care, immigration, Iran, and taxes.

They’re all child’s play though, compared to the current high wire issue of national security that Big Guy addressed last month during his counter terrorism speech:


I like to call this his “Grand Canyon” performance:

“Nailed it!”

Big Guy’s high wire expertise should surprise no one who’s been following his career. Way back when he was just a junior Senator from Illinois running for his first historic presidency he told reporters who were interested that his favorite TV show was The Wire.


Oh, and for the record: Big Guy’s favorite character is Omar, a gay thief who lives by a strict moral code of his own making that few in the world of law enforcement would recognize or acknowledge.



“Man’s gotta live what he know, right?” From “The 49 days of Omar1

Don’t judge, people. You’ve never had to walk in Big Guy’s slippers.

Why not post it here instead of pimping for hits?
