Awesome: Man Describes What 2017 Will Look Like When Obama Is No Longer President

Conservative Tribune

Are you longing for Friday, Jan. 20, 2017 — Inauguration Day?

Do you spend more time than you should thinking about what life will be like after President Barack Obama?

Me too. And we’re not alone.

Our friends at Young Conservatives shared this story about an old man in late January, 2017

At any rate, here’s what they said:

One sunny day in January, 2017, an old man approaches the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue where he’d been sitting on a park bench. He speaks to the U.S. Marine standing guard and says, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.” The Marine looks at the man and says, “Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer president and no longer resides here.” The old man says, “Okay,” and walks away.

The following day the same man approaches the White House and says to the same Marine, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.” The Marine again tells the man, “Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Obama is no longer president and no longer resides here.” The man thanks him and again walks away.

On the third day, the same man approaches the White House and speaks to the very same U.S. Marine, saying, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.” The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looks at the man and says, “Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Obama. I’ve told you already that Mr. Obama is no longer the president and no longer resides here. Don’t you understand?”

The old man looks at the Marine and says,“Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it.” The Marine snaps to attention, salutes, and says, “See you tomorrow, Sir!”

That makes me smile no matter how many times I read it.

Congress Takes Up Case of U.S. ‘War Hero’ Jailed in Mexico, Ignored by Obama

(CNSNews.com) – A House Foreign Affairs subcommittee took up the “extremely important issue” of a U.S. Afghanistan war veteran who’s been held in a Mexican prison for more than six months after taking a wrong turn into Mexico with guns in his car.

Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi says the whole thing was a mistake, but Mexico has so far refused appeals from his mother and even from members of Congress to release him.

In his opening statement on Wednesday, Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.) said he is “mystified” that President Obama found time to negotiate with the Taliban for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who walked away from his unit in Afghanistan, but couldn’t find time to “call our ally, the Mexican president, to appeal to him on behalf of our Marine.”

“If we in Congress don’t do everthing in our power to get Sgt. Tahmooressi, an injured war hero, back to the States for treatment, then what are we doing here? Making sure that our combat veterans are taken care of when they return is one of our most honored and sacred obligations.”

WH Beer Recipe More Important Than Marine Jailed in Mexico?

The Sean Hannity Show

It has been almost 3 months since a WhiteHouse.gov petitioncreated to demand the release of Sgt. Andrew from a Mexican prison reached its 100,000 signature threshold. Unfortunately, the White House has thus far remained mum on the situation. They have in the past, however, found time to respond to childish, insignificant petitions faster than to one that demands the release of a decorated U.S. Marine veteran who was at one time facing abuse and death threats in a Mexican prison.

Below are three ridiculous WhiteHouse.gov petitions that received faster responses from the Obama Administration than Sgt. Tahmooressi’s:

1. Formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race – Disclosure
Created: September 22, 2011
White House Reply: November 4, 2011

2. Release the recipe for the Honey Ale home brewed at the White House
Created: August 18, 2012
White House Reply: September 1, 2012

*This was such a pressing topic that the president found time out of his busy schedule to respond to an inquisitive Reddit.com user during a “Ask Me Anything” session on the social media site. When asked when the beer recipe will be released, Obama replied, “It will be out soon! I can tell from firsthand experience, it is tasty.” The response was one of only 10 answers the president gave during the forum session.

3. Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016
Created: November 14, 2012
Reached required number of signatures: December 14, 2012
White House Reply: January 12, 2013

*For readers unfamiliar with Star Wars, the “Death Star” is a fictional space station with the ability to destroy an “entire planet.”

There you have it, folks. Your tax dollars are hard at work crafting responses to petty White House petitions, while an urgent plea to help a former U.S. Marine has so far been ignored.
