Posted on 10/16/2009 6:24:37 AM PDT by Constitutionalist Conservative
Congratulatory messages poured into the White House this morning from global heads-of-state celebrating President Barack Obamas dramatic rescue of a 6-year-old Colorado boy, whose apparent flight in an experimental balloon yesterday captivated viewers around the world.
While the White House declined to comment on how the president could have flown to Colorado, retrieved the boy from the balloon, and returned him safely to the attic of his family home, press secretary Robert Gibbs said President Obama was surprised and deeply humbled by the international attention. He said the president views this latest round of global tribute as a call to action to lend urgency to the cause of passing comprehensive health care reform as well as cap-and-trade climate change legislation.
The incident comes just a week after Mr. Obama stunned the world by winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his diligent labors during the initial 12 days of his administration to promote fraternity among nations and to abolish or reduce standing armies.
Mr. Gibbs said the president is committed donating to charity any reward money he gets for the boys rescue, and that the White House still awaits a return phone call from the boys family regarding the amount of that reward.
President Awesome does it again!!! LOL!
Time and again, Scrappleface —though fully satirical — has come VERY close to reality. I could actually see 0bama finding some way to take credit.
This is a classic.
I wonder who this kid’s mom and dad voted for?
The incident comes just a week after Mr. Obama stunned the world by winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his diligent labors during the initial 12 days of his administration to promote fraternity among nations and to abolish or reduce standing armies.The last few words are pretty much a direct quote of Alfred Nobel's stated reason for establishing the peace prize. Merely quoting this shows the absurdity the prize has become.
Such a delicious irony! Many layers in one serving..
“I wonder who this kids mom and dad voted for?”
Something tells me they voted Obama. Maybe it was the attention hound syndrome.
Obama says: “Get your hoax on bro!”
Yes there is. He cannot tell the truth,cannot find his birth certificate and cannot keep his oath to support, uphold and defend the Constitution.
"We told the child that if he ever said a word about the top secret military gear we would make sure that his family was first in Obamacare. That really shut him up."
The article does not even mention how Obama with his personal persuasion managed to divert a 10 Km asteroid away from the earth. What a guy!!
He, the One, thought a happy ending. And so it was.
Congress should give the One a medal.
