From Junior Varsity to Cancer in 6 Months

Posted by madjillmom on August 21, 2014

Remember when George Bush told us he wanted Bin Laden “dead or alive”. He was castigated as the “Cowboy” President, shooting first and asking questions later. Many of the media felt his statements had incited the terrorists. 

Fast forward to January, 2014. Obama uses a basketball analogy and called ISIS/ISIL a junior varsity team pretending to be professionals. They weren’t Kobe Bryant in Lakers jerseys, they were not of note. Perhaps this statement was a gauntlet throw down.

Fast forward again to yesterday. Obama says that ISIS/ISIL is a cancer that has no place in this century. Did ISIS/ISIL change in that time? Were they trying to tell “Cowboy” Obama that they are in the big league? I guess his mind was really on basketball yesterday, because immediately after that he went to play golf with a former NBA star. 

So now Obama says he understands the threat of this Army. But what is he going to do? He says we will act “alongside others”. He says the cancer must be stopped, not eliminated.

Tiger Woods and Sequestration

Posted by madjillmom on February 18, 2013

Sequestration is looming. PresBO is holding high level meetings with his good friend, Tiger Woods. They discussed the ramifications of the cuts to the military on the back nine. By the 19th hole, they had decided that taxing the rich is the only way out of this problem. Problem solved. Great work. 

Next week, PresBO will have a pick-up game with Michael Jordan while they solve the problem of illegal immigration. 

If PresBO takes up soccer, I think his game with David Beckham will probably fix the deficit. 

Thank goodness this President is so able to multi-task  Remember when George Bush had to give up golf because the press didn’t like him playing while troops were dying in war.  No problem with Obama playing golf while caskets come home.
