THOSE BIG BAD REPUBLICAN MEANIES JUST WON’T BE NICE TO ME!
In a pathetic display of self-pity reminiscent of Humphrey Bogart’s Captain Queeg in The Caine Mutiny, Barack Hussein Obama spoke wistfully this week of his herculean efforts to bend over backwards – against insurmountable odds – and work in historic bipartisan fashion with Congressional Republicans – only to be savagely rebuffed at every turn.
Yes, America, try as our reaching-across-the-aisle president might, those big bad conservative meanies in Congress have refused to play nice with poor Barack from the very beginning. Here’s just a small part of the heartbreaking story, as related by a visibly-crushed president, barely able to hold back tears – as he spoke of the tragedy that has unfolded over the last 3 1/2 years:
“I suspect that most people in Cincinnati would acknowledge that I’ve tried real hard, and we just haven’t gotten the kind of willingness on the part of Republicans to engage on a whole range of issues that I wish had happened.”
After taking a few moments to compose himself, the emotionally-drained shell of a man he once was somehow managed to dig deep inside and continue:
“The voters once again have to send a message, ‘We want common sense ideas, we don’t want folks who are just saying no to everything, even stuff that traditionally you were in favor of.'”
In the off chance that you have not already been reduced to a bawling fool by Barack’s incredibly brave accounting of his horrific treatment at the hands of Congressional Republicans, check out the video, but be forewarned: it’s gut wrenching:
Oh, the humanity!
We must save Barack, America. Please join me in voting him out of office in November. I could not bear to watch four more years of such abhorrent treatment of such a decent and honorable man.
Please pass me the Kleenex; I can’t take it anymore.
