The Family Splits Up

I told you that Lady M was not going to stay holed up in Washington with sub-zero (temperatures) when she had a luxurious estate at her disposal in Big Guy’s alleged birth state.

It may be Christmas butt both of the O’s are still busy sacrificing for the American people. Big Guy, by sticking around to throw hissy fits and threaten his lame ducks if they don’t line up correctly (this used to be Rhambo’s job until we sent him into exile). Lady M’s sacrifice involved flying off on our Winter Holiday in Hawaii in a “modest” military jet, a C40B, “one of the smaller and most efficient planes available in the White House fleet for this trip”

And if you don’t think flying on a “military version of a business airplane” isn’t a sacrifice, well then, you just don’t remember how the O’s feel about business.

Perhaps you’ll remember how we felt about the Auto CEO’s flying in for Congressional hearings on their private jets? Which were actually much smaller and more efficient than the C40B –737? Butt that was different. They were greedy pigs, looking for the American taxpayer to pay their way.

Meanwhile, stuck back in the mean halls of Congress, Big Guy’s  wasting no time by celebrating the passage of DADT (well, maybe a little bit, in private). He’s already busy with all his other Winter Holiday wish list items:




BO’s tried out a few clever slogans that he came up with on his own: “START DREAM BUDGET” - “BUDGET START of DREAM” - “DREAM OF BUDGET STARTs”

Butt now that the DREAM has ended, he’s stuck with START BUDGET, or BUDGET START. As you can see, nowhere near as catchy.

Austan Goolsbee, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, nearby, prays for divine intervention to provide a solution to budgeting without dollars.

Meanwhile Big Guy, who seems butt a shadow of his former image, is brushing up on his lounge act just in case he needs a new gig in a couple of years.





oh ohAnd waiting patiently in the wings,  Big Guy’s secretary is licking her chops.






Work, work, work. That’s all we ever do when we’re not on vacation. And now it gets in the way of our traditional Winter Holiday arrival tradition and photo op.
