Swallow Hard...


This just in from the MoosRoom's 'Surreal Department', courtesy of the Daily Mail Online:   

YOU and a guest can join Michelle and Barack on their next... 

[Gulp]

Date.


And, as uncomfortable as this sounds on the surface, you'll also be able to get dating 'tips' via the following text and video from...


The President of the United States


I'll be quiet for a moment while these two bits of information sink in...


Silence.

Silence.

Silence.


Okay, I'm back. 

Oh, you need another moment?  Go ahead, I'll be here.  I'll continue typing v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y while you're gone - you'll catch up soon enough. 


If you need to 'rinse and spit' to wash that acrid 'pre-vomit' taste from your mouth, there's a sink in the next room.  I suggest that you use it prior to delving any deeper into the subject at hand.  


From the Daily Mail article dated June 25th:    The 1 minute 40 video clip posted online begins with Michelle Obama recalling: 'It was a cool date, we spent the whole day together, he was showing me all facets of his character. We went to the Art Institute.'
 

At which point Barack Obama, wearing a white shirt and striped tie, nods enthusiastically, points his finger at the camera and says: 'Art - guys out there, it impresses people.'

Mrs Obama then says that the couple, who married in 1992, 'took a nice long walk down Michigan Avenue' and again Mr Obama smiles and gives a knowing nod to camera saying 'romantic.'

The First Lady, who is wearing her trademark pearls and a patterned sheer top, then asks Mr Obama 'Did we go to the movie first?'

He thinks for a second and then replies: 'Uh we didn't have dinner we actually had lunch at the Art Institute, there was a little courtyard, with a little fountain.'
 


Mrs Obama smiles and says 'Yeah that was nice' and Mr Obama agrees: 'Yeah it was very nice.'


The president continues: 'Then we went to see Do The Right Thing'
 


And Mrs Obama nods saying 'Spike Lee - it had just come out. '

'He showed all the sides - he was hip, cutting edge, cultural, sensitive. The fountain - nice touch,' she continues.

'The walk - patient,' she adds.

Mr Obama grins, shrugs his shoulders, looks at the camera and says 'Take tips gentleman' before winking.



Video Link:   That Magical First Date 

The interview coincides with a competition his Obama For America campaign have launched which offers winners the opportunity to have 'dinner with President Obama, along with a guest of your choice and four other supporters.'
 

The winners will each receive round-trip tickets for them and a guest from within the fifty U.S. States, DC, or Puerto Rico to a destination to be determined by the sponsor.
 

They will stay in a hotel and have dinner with the president and his wife at an undisclosed location  - the competition states that the package is worth about $4,800.


Honestly, I could have lived my entire LIFE without knowing the details of the President's and Michelle's first date.  Thanks to everyone at the Daily Mail for making it so REAL for me - for bringing it to life.  You guys and gals ROCK. 

[Somewhere in the U.K., reporters are raising pints of amber beverages and laughing hysterically...  at US.] 



Once again, the President of the United States is inviting you to register (to win!), donate, sign up for 'We Love Barack' e-mail blasts, and eat with him, Michelle, and four other 'supporters' at some point in the future.

That's a 'value' of $4,800!

Wow.  

This is small consolation when you consider that YOUR family's slice of the debt-pie has grown $29,660 since the President passed his 'Stimulus' plans, increased government spending, and sent scores of Americans to the unemployment lines.  

What does this mean to your household?  One year ago, YOUR family owed $125,425 (up almost $30k since the President was elected) of the National Debt. 

This year, as expected, YOU necessarily owe our debtors...  more.  (Feel free to use the words, 'Your Fair Share' if they make you feel any better.)

But hey, what's a little 'debt' among friends? 

Things are getting better, right?

Yeah, let's go there - let's lift up the well-worn, thread-bare stained blue skirt of President Obama's 'Recovery'...

  $15.7 Trillion:  Current National Debt ($15,744,360,700,064.85).
(U.S. Treasury Department, Accessed 6/13/12)

$5.11 Trillion:  Added To The National Debt Since Obama Took Office.
(U.S. Treasury Department, Accessed 6/13/12)

23.2 Million:  Number Of Americans Who Are Unemployed, Underemployed, Or Marginally Attached To The Workforce.
(Bureau of Labor Statistics, Accessed 6/13/12)

12.7 Million:  Unemployed Americans.
(Bureau of Labor Statistics, Accessed 6/13/12)

8.1 Million:  Americans Working Part-Time For Economic Reasons.
(Bureau of Labor Statistics, Accessed 6/13/12)

6.3 Million:  Number Of Americans That Fell Into Poverty Since Obama Took Office.
(U.S. Census Bureau, 9/13/11)

5.4 Million:  Americans Unemployed 27 Weeks Or Longer.




People used to say, "There's no free lunch." 

Those people were fools. 

As we close the fourth year of this ObamaNation, free lunches are found all over the place.  Mostly needed because people can't afford to feed themselves, or their families any longer. 


Why offer Americans a 'hand-up' when you can buy them with a 'hand-out'? 

If re-elected, you can safely bet (oh yes, you will bet - whether you want to, or not) that President Obama will continue to do what he's done for the past 3+ years...



Dress up... 


Talk down... 

And give Americans a multitude of options with which they can embrace mediocrity.

However, as illustrated by the post from the Daily Mail - if you play your cards right, you get lucky, and you submit your name for future e-mail organizational 'notifications', you MIGHT just win dinner with Barack, Michelle, and other 'supporters'...

Just remember as you wash your hands, rub your stomach and stare into the bathroom mirror at your expanded waistline following the Meal to thank the millions of other American Households who are each paying the additional $30,000 of the National Debt so you can get your FREE dinner with the President. 

As for me, I'm happy sitting here eating my PB and J, low-salt chips, and Coke Zero.  It's not much, but it's paid for.  Unlike spending legislated out of DC, our family is working hard to pay as we go. 

But if President Obama figures out how to work with Congress to balance the budget and eliminate deficit spending in his last couple of months in office?  I'll cook HIM dinner, and he won't have to register for feeds from my website, or anything goofy like that.  He'll still be the worst President since Carter, but I'd feed the man if he were here.

I do, however, suspect that my wife and I will lock the dogs away in the upstairs bedroom, you know, just in case he starts longing for the 'unique tastes' of his youth. 

Yumm-O!
