Coming to a TV Screen Near You . . . Sometime Soon

Fellow Americans, I just want to let you know how much I have enjoyed being your President.  Michelle and I and the girls really like living here.  The girls have adapted to their new school, Michelle loves tending her little kitchen garden out back, and we all really enjoy using the helicopter.

But the reason I am addressing you tonight is this.  It seems that my poll numbers keep dropping.

Look. This is a hard job.  And I inherited a big mess from my predecessor.  And I know I said this recession would be over and recovery would be in full swing by now.  But I just didn't realize how bad things really were.  And this is a really hard job.   I devote every waking hour from 9:30 a.m to 4 p.m. to running this country, and it just seems like there is always more to do.

But I can understand that some of you have lost faith in me.  Gas prices are up because of evil speculators trying to make huge profits from your pockets. Unemployment levels are still too high, because greedy business owners just won't hire new people and take on those extra payroll expenses when sales are not going so good.  And that is why my poll numbers are so low.

 I just wanted to let you know I'm doing something about that.  Recently, I asked my good friends and advisors to find out exactly why people are not rating me favorably in my job as President.  And we have come up with some solutions we think you will like.  The best thing is, I have established a plan, so these solutions will not add a dime to the country's deficit or to your tax bill.  And then you will like me again, and my poll numbers will go back up.

Please like me.  Because I killed Osama Bin Laden.  And I'm the first Black President.

Psst! It's Not Working

Subliminal messaging #FAIL.

This photo appeared today with an AP article  "Obama on Gay Marriage . . ."

The Halo Effect.

 The subliminal message isn't.  It's Blatant.

We know by now that President Obama is not a saint, messiah, or holy personage.

It's a photographic cliche'.  It's trite. 

So, Associated Press and Photographer Pablo Martinez Monsivals --- Please find something else to do with your talent.

Don't You Remember When That Happened?

PJ Tatler: President Who Hired Communists And Hung Out With Terrorists Says Romney Must Rebuke Extreme Voices
President Obama’s campaign is looking to seize on a pair of controversial comments by supporters at Mitt Romney’s town hall meeting in Cleveland Monday, calling on the presumptive Republican nominee to “stand up to the extreme voices in his party.”
“Today we saw Mitt Romney’s version of leadership: standing by silently as his chief surrogate attacked the President’s family at the event and another supporter alleged that the President should be tried for treason,” said Obama spokeswoman Lis Smith in a statement. “Time after time in this campaign, Mitt Romney has had the opportunity to show that he has the fortitude to stand up to hateful and over-the-line rhetoric and time after time, he has failed to do so. If this is the ‘leadership’ he has shown on the campaign trail, what can the American people expect of him as commander-in-chief?”

Remember when Obama displayed fine Presidential-quality Leadership by rebuking the New Black Panther Party for offering $100,000 for the capture of George Zimmerman, a US Citizen who hadn't been charged with any crime?

Didn't think so.

Lis Smith, Shut Up.
