You Might Be President Obama If . . .

With apologies to fellow Georgian Jeff Foxworthy, who had absolutely nothing to do with this.

You might be President Obama . . .


If the ten year-old with the neighborhood lemonade stand has more business experience than you, you might be President Obama.

If you have more communists in your cabinet than Vladimir Putin, you might be President Obama.

If you try to look more macho by taking part in a military operation – run by France, you might be President Obama.

If the only campaign promise you have ever kept was to "make energy costs skyrocket", you might be President Obama.

If you got a Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing – and you’re following the same strategy to win a second, you might be President Obama.

If your OCD problem is that you compulsively bow to foreign thugs and dictators, you might be President Obama.

If you actually apologize for our behavior toward countries whose idea of a good time is to practice genocide on their own citizens, you might be President Obama.

If you’ve started a war and you don’t know why, you might be President Obama.

If you’ve never met privately with some of your own cabinet members, but average seeing your golf pro once a week, you might be President Obama.

If you’ve ever put Joe Biden in charge of anything bigger than setting up a Parcheesi board, you might be President Obama.

If your idea of fixing the economy is to go shopping – in another country, you might be President Obama.

Of course, more will probably be added. So many gaffes, so little time.

  1. I have to give credit for the "neighborhood lemonade stand" idea to my good friend Clyde Griffin who made that comment back in February. Thanks, Clyde!

  2. If you've ever been locked out of the Oval Office because the staff don't know where you are or when you're coming back, you might be President Obama.

    If you aren't sure how many states there are in your country, you might be President Obama.

    If you think Muslims founded western civilization, you might be...

    Oh hell, this is too easy and there are just way too many.

    Outstanding column as always, also great comments from the readers. The Ken Carroll fastball blows away the competition and increases its speed with age. Keep on bringing the heat !
    Maybe next election the Republicans will have a decent candidate for a change (please, no more mealy mouth McPains) to challenge the Big O.
    Obama reminds me of the old bumper sticker that reads "Support your travel agent - leave town."
