First, they referred to Big Guy’s primary sweep in the Democratic nomination as a tsunami. Then they said the cult of personality that built around him was a tsunami that would sweep him into office and launch a post-partisan, post racial America. Then they said after he won the election there would be a tsunami of good will for America building across the world.
Obama used his swell of good will to introduce a “tsunami” of regulations, a swell of stimulus spending and the towering wave of Obamacare. This was followed by a second wave consisting of a “tax tsunami,” followed by the Obama tsunami of debt.
All of which generated a third wave: a tsunami of voter discontent hit last November. Then came the federal court tsunami ruling that Obamacare is unconstitutional.
And now, this: a non-metaphorical tsunami.
Some people will say the gods are angry. Others will say it’s globull warming (or cooling. Whatever). [ed. Well, that didn’t take long]
Butt Big guy is taking it much more personally. He feels like he’s back in grade school, and the bullies are picking on him again. About his ears.
President Barack Obama… said his large ears and funny name once made him a target of school-yard harassment…"If there's one goal of this conference," Obama said, "it's to dispel the myth that bullying is just a harmless rite of passage or an inevitable part of growing up. It's not."
This explains everything. Sort of. Big Guy is still carrying the scars of those long ago big ear taunts.
Butt with Lady M’s help, he’s been able to turn all that pain into unbridled ambition.
So now that he’s feeling better about himself, this might be a good time for Big Guy to make good on his campaign promise, and make the oceans recede, so the planet can begin to heal.
Then, maybe, on the seventh day he can finally rest.

Tsunami Warming: tsunami’s move in two directions. They first move ashore, sweeping you in, before reversing and sucking you back out to sea. Seek high ground.
