He’ll be available in Jan 2017. And with that half bil they looted from the Irag banks, can likely outbid PMSNBC for Baraq’s contract.

Re Obama: “He’ll be available in Jan 2017.”

No kidding. Bamster gets his dream job. They will just have to put in a really nice golf course in the Caliphate city of his choice. (Mooch will be in the rear view mirror, anyway, so it won’t be a concern.)

In Jan 2017, Mooche will be the newly elected junior senator from Illinois.
Unlike Hillary, no carpet-bagging will be required.
