"When the current resident of the White House ran for office he talked frequently of his advantage in helping the folks because of his family's experiences. He said, 'it was only a short time ago that Michelle and I were running up credit card debt like common people do'," Butch opened the discussion on this sunny July afternoon as the folks huddled in the Hubbard City Cafe in an effort to avoid the global warming in the downtown area. The folks braced knowing that Butch may be semi-skeptical of our President's claim of being one of the common folks. Sure enough, Butch continued, "Last night the President met with close friends and contributors in New York City, after filming his chat with the girls on the View. He raised $3 million by charging these common Democratic Progressives $30,000 per plate for dinner and conversation with the Messiah."
Sweet Lou Tekell jumped on this one, "Just a few weeks ago Londoners were astonished at Obama's arrival for the G20 summit where the world's leaders were exchanging ideas in an austere atmosphere on how to cut back on deficit spending, unemployment, and weak economies. So here comes Barry arriving with a staff of 500 people, including 200 Secret Service Agents, a team of six doctors, the White House chef and staff with the President's own food and water. It doesn't stop here. He also had 35 vehicles, 4 speech writers, and of course no fewer than 12 teleprompters. You know he thinks he can talk his way out of anything. Not only did they take Air Force One, of course, but also the presidential helicopter, Marine One, plus a flight of identical decoy helicopters to ferry him from Stansted airport to central London. I am not making this up. It was in the London press, but of course, not picked up by the government controlled media here in the States. Brits and world leaders were appalled."
This turned into an Obama slug fest as my Mom, and most Hubbard people's second Mom, entered the discussion, "He even has Aunt Martha's dogs upset. Last week the Obamas arrived in Maine for their vacation and the local paper, the Morning Sentinel, described the scene: 'The president was the first to walk onto the tarmac, dressed casually in a pale blue Oxford shirt and khakis. A few minutes later, the first lady, dressed in black Capri's, a tank-top and sandals, walked onto the runway. Shortly afterward, Malia and Sasha joined their parents."
"Now it gets good. Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and the president’s personal aide Reggie Love. The president who said the rest of us are going to have to sacrifice to get out of these hard economic times let his dog fly on his own plane? Not enough room on Air Force One for a Portuguese water dog and Reggie Love? One writer added 'There was some concern because the 747 cargo conversion carrying the First Couple’s egos was a bit late in arriving'. Just how common are these folks? And Aunt Martha's dogs saw this story and want their own jet, too. Thanks Obama."
Billy Roy Mitchum, unelected but unquestionably the Chairman of the Hubbard City Cafes Coffee Folks summed up as is usually the case, "And this is the guy that is going to spend our way out of these deficits. If spending will do it, it appears he is the man for the job. But I am afraid that we know, at best he is a incompetent spoiled academic. At worst he is a corrupt Socialist freeloader. I just saw the percentage of people in his administration with business backgrounds, which might come in handy if you are managing a worldwide recession and the world's largest economy. His is the lowest in history at an astounding 8%. Even Kennedy was 30% and Carter 32%. Real Chief Executives like George Bush was 55%, Reagan was 56%, and Eisenhower 57%. Even Slick Willie was smart enough to have 39% of his staff and cabinet with business backgrounds. It appears the only business people Obama can stomach are those paying $30 thousand a plate for the privilege of his company and government kick backs."
And BM closed, "God Bless Us All and hopefully no later than November."
Think about it,
