We elected a child to do a man's job
« on: April 08, 2009, 06:16:00 AM »
Good Morning,

I got the following yesterday from a friend of mine.  It was in the Canadian Free Press.  I hesitated to post it but the more I think about it, there is a lot of truth in the article.  The inmates seem to be in charge of the asylum and when BO wanders away from his teleprompter we see just what has really happened.  He is like a third grader who gets to be the principal for a day and gives everyone free ice cream from the cafeteria for crying out loud.

regards,

Hi,

Actually my analogy was not a good one.  It should have been the kid who is principal for a day who allows all the underachievers to raid the lunchboxes of the good, hardworking students because they are rich and greedy and take advantage of the poor lazy students.
