El Presidente’s Busy, Busy Week

Lady M’s been down with the vapors ever since la fiesta. If you look at this photo closely, you can probably see what caused those “vapors.”

ouchYou need to be careful where you place the containment fences 

Although,to be fair, she already seemed a little out of sorts earlier in the day:

Bring it, kiddo!having a really bad day

I’m sure she’ll feel much better when she’s able to sit up and take a little nourishment.

But Big Guy! Wow, he’s just a little Energizer bunny– we are sooo getting our money’s worth out of him. Or is that the other way around?

First, he has some comments on the financial reform bill in the rose garden. ( you already know about little Mo) He didn’t have time to take any questions from the press. (Gerard has the final word on this.)

President Barack Obama delivers remarks on Wall Street and Financial reform, Thursday, May 20, 2010, in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington.It always looks like BO is practicing when he’s in the Rose Garden. And another thing: where are the roses?

Then off to Congress to agree with Felipe’s trashing of our immigration policy, discriminatory Arizona law and gun laws. The Dems gave him a standing O. They haven’t heard such a litany of grievances since Jesse Jackson used to hang around the Big White all the time.

Felipe CaulderoneOle’ el Presidente! Who forgot to hang the Mexican flag? 

And then, a mad dash back to the Rose Garden to sign a presidential memorandum to push for producing more fuel efficient trucks and next-generation cars, including advanced electric vehicles. 

President Barack Obama, followed by  EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, walks from the Oval Office to the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, Friday, May 21, 2010, to sign a Presidential Memorandum outlining the next steps for cleaner and more efficient vehicles.

We have to hurry, because the way that oil is gushing into the Gulf, we’re going to run out by the end of the year – the CBO just completed the calculation. So we need to pass Cap and Tax by Friday.

Or Al Gore might have to find a new gig, and we’ll all have to suffer through a long, hot summer.
