Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics

thanks, Obama

Since you have taken office, I have gained 10 pounds, thanks a lot.

I have run out of milk on more that one occasion, and have had fruits and vegetables go bad in my fridge before I got a chance to eat them, wtf.

We haven’t had an inch of snow in 328 days in Chicagoland, a record, I am pretty sure this is your fault too. Thanks.

One of my fish died, clearly your fault.

My nail polish nearly always chips after one or two days, you have done absolutely nothing to address this.  Thanks, Obama.

When I watch TV, commercials are still louder than the programs, what gives?

When my vegetables need water, sometimes I have to water them myself because it doesn’t rain. You said you cared!


I still have to scoop the litter box, and litter still gets all over the floor every. single day. Thanks.


Wait, what?  Oh yeah. Thanks, Obama! This is a great day, congratulations!

    It’s all Obama’s fault. (If I didn’t have the protection of Medicare and Social Security, I’d be dead.)

  2. I am grinning from ear to ear.

    And I’m leaving a comment where you can Fierce it because there is No Reason to leave one anywhere else.

    YOU rock!  

  3. Jan —

    I just renewed my oath of office to serve as your president for four more years.

    Thank you for making this possible. It’s an honor to be your president.

    Now it’s time to finish what we started — let’s get going.


    P.S. — Organizing for Action is the next step in our grassroots movement and will be crucial to finishing what we started. If you haven’t already, say you’ll be part of it.

    people will scarcely believe it possible that so much got through such a broken political system in so short of a time span.
