I refer to Obama as the Occupier in the White House. A resident is, at least, usually there legally. An Occupier is just a leech, taking all the goodies that he can, whining about what is owed to him, creating chaos, and telling everyone that his problems are the fault of someone else. An Occupier contributes nothing.
That’s a good point. Thanks.
I’m not sure if you ever saw the movie Dave. It was a mix of brilliantly written and at times somewhat juvenile story line. My wife and I like the movie quite a bit.
In one scene, Dave who has been asked to stand in for the president because of their identical appearance and his ability to mimic the president’s mannerisms, stands at the podium in the Press Room.
He goes into character, rattles off some rhetoric he’s heard the president deliver before, with gestures mixed in, and is so startlingly good, that he shocks the only two men who know what he is doing there. Their mouths drop open and they’re speechless. A moment later he break’s character and says, “Can I have this?” in an almost childlike manner, as he holds up a pencil with the White House name on it.
In another scene when he temporarily thinks he’s leaving the White House, he has a sports bag full of ash trays, hand towels, and assorted other branded White House goodies.
Your post made me think of this. It’s hilarious to envision Obama in that role, walking out with goodies. he is just that juvenile though.
Of course you’re referring to much more exotic goodies than this, and I agree with you.
