Obama Keeps the Change
« on: July 10, 2009, 08:00:37 pm »
Here's Your Change.

Michelle Obama Takes Girls to London for Fish and Chips

Truly change we can believe in - or as was said during the campaign,

"We are the change we have been waiting for."

Imagine this - and when do we get totally fed up?

A Boeing 757 and a fleet of armoured cars for Michelle’s sight seeing tour!

Michelle One



On Sunday, President Obama flew back to the United States on Air Force One. His wife, two daughters and her mother did a bit of shopping in Paris before taking their own Boeing 757 (C-32) over to London to do some sight seeing.

We all remember Obama’s admonishment to corporate CEO’s in February:

“You can’t get corporate jets, you can’t go take a trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayers dime.”

Apparently that doesn’t apply to his wife.

The London Times opened it’s description of Michelle’s visit this way:

Motorcycle outriders, armoured Chevrolets and bullet-headed men in raincoats criss-crossed London yesterday as Michelle Obamadoesn't and her daughters spent a second day on an unofficial visit to the capital..

The Times went on to describe that when Michelle and the girls arrived at Westminster Abbey, the building was closed to tourists with people already in told to “wait against the wall.” An American visiting the Abbey said “Right then I knew it was probably someone from our ‘royal family’.”



Michelle’s motorcade shut down the London street above as the First Lady of the World and her children go for Fish and Chips at a pub in Mayfair. The entourage inside the restaurant was 15 people while dozens more wait outside. Include the dozens of Air Force personnel to fly and service the plane, embassy personnel and other staff and we are talking about a serious expenditure of tax payer dollars.

Meanwhile, millions of Americans have lost their jobs and won’t be able to take their family on a summer holiday.

Despite their circumstances they’ll still be expected to fork over the tax dollars to pay for Michelle’s trip.

Can you imagine the gall of our First Royal Family?

52% wanted change. 100% got screwed.

On second thought, the alternate title would read better were it, Obama Keeps the Change.

*sigh*

Both were quite apt.

Sigh... to the victor goes the spoils... The presidency has begun to more closely resemble the royal court of pre revolutionary France than the executive branch of the American republic.

Well here's my take on that. *sings to the tune of Sir Robin Ran Away*

Bravely bold Obama,
Rode forth from Muslim Land.
To take our country's heart away,
So all the whites would rue the day,
And my oh my oh how they would pay...
They can't refuse his outstretched hand,
Just how Obama planned!

He wasn't in the least bit shamed,
For who, a black man, ever blamed?
No one would dare revolt or cry,
That he should bid the office bye,
Or play it fair, or dare, to try,
Or tell the poor sweet people why,
And no one even thinks it strange...
Obama keeps the change,
Obama keeps the change!

I keep telling you he's not a Muslim, I seriously doubt he's even a christian. He's most likly a Marxist based on... just about everything he does, has said, and has been involved with in his career.

Remember Muslims are extremely conservative people, they are pro life, and very traditional. Obama couldn't be further from that if he tried.

To be honest most of the Muslims in Chelsea that I have met are conservatives, my bus diver Mohammad had Michael Savage on when we were going back to Chelsea after my politics and government class. You should have seen the look on my liberal classmates, they didn't know what to think, but me and him were laughing our heads off.

Saying Obama is a Muslim is an insult to Muslim Americans.

I'd replace "whites" with American citizens. With Obama in the white house everyone is screwed. Economic disasters don't discriminate.

Then I'd have to put "all of us" because American Citizens makes it not fit the metre.

That would work, I just don't want your poem giving minorities a false sense of security, know what I mean?

Everyone with American citizenship is going to be paying off Obama's debt for generations to come.

You just don't want to sound racist, which it will be anyway because it attacks Obama.

Not everyone who believes ethnic groups are equal, believes Africans should be more equal than everyone else.

That's the animal farm version of civil rights, not the kind I support.

A thing is what it is. Until you gain power and change it, that is. Until then, Civil Rights is a single-edged sword, as is racism. You can't argue with the fact that something exists just by disputing the fairness of its existence.
