There aren’t many humorous headlines today (another assassination in Pakistan, Illinois on the brink of bankruptcy, the national debt tops $14 trillion — trillion!), but here’s one that brought a smile to my face:
“Obama exhorts Republicans to put politics aside.”
Yes, that’s right: just as he ends his two-week vacation (I think we ought to start calling Obama “President Holiday”: has any president ever taken as many vacations as he?), the leader of the formerly free world is “appealing to newly-empowered Republicans to resist jockeying for the White House in 2012 and work with him to get the economy growing and the jobless back to work.” Ha, ha, ha! Oh, what a card.
We have all heard how narcissistic Barack Obama really is and how he does not like to take orders from anybody but, presumably, Allah his Muslim deity. (Christian? Don’t make me laugh.) Well for two years while he had control over the United States Congress he was at least pictured to be compliant with the whims of Pelosi and Reid, but secretly they also had to be in concert with whomever it is that runs his complicated mind. (George Soros perhaps?)
But at times he goes completely astray and obeys only those ‘middle-of-the-night’ voices that compel him to be arbitrary and do it “his way.”

No matter how you rearrange President Obama’s inner circle, it still looks, smells and tastes like a rotten Chicago deep-dish pizza.
Ready for the latest topping on this moldy old pie? It’s a possible chief of staff slot for Wall Street banker/lawyer/wheeler-dealer William Daley, brother of outgoing Chicago mayor/machine politics mastermind Richard M. Daley (also the former boss of White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and first lady Michelle Obama), whose retirement paved the way for former Obama chief of staff and Chicago mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel. Phew.
