Shortly after the S&P downgraded the US's bond rating, Obama pushed back by reaffirming his confidence in Treasury Secretary Tim "the taxman" Geithner at yet another White House Bungle-Bungle party featuring semi-nude interns, a former Miss Indonesia now working as a White House telemarketer, and a tele-conference with former IMF head DSK.
Geithner, the last of Obama's vaunted economic councilors, had vowed to leave the Administration shortly after the debt ceiling vote and return to the dreaded 'private sector.'
At the time Geithner was overheard saying, "well, I've done about as much damage as I can here, and I don't want to be the last one left holding a Tea Bag when they turn off the lights!"
Just a week ago Geithner was quoted as saying, "they never, never, read my lips, will never down grade our borrowing power!
All of his cohorts, handpicked by Obama, have long since fled back to the safety of academia, tenure, and dual pension funds after their brief stint in government.
During that brief period of euphoria they brought to America TARP, The STIMULUS, GM's Bankruptcy and take over, Obamacare, the igniting of Class Warfare, SHOVEL READY jobs, and last but not least, amnesty for Obama's Aunt Zulu granted full human rights after evading deportation to Kenya 4 times from the safe confines of Democratic controlled Boston where she gets a nice pad, full health care, cab rides for shopping and a cell phone so she can call for one!
Obama, who said he hasn't officially announced his candidacy for a second term, but is on his way to raising over $1B dollars for his 'Maybe I'll Change" campaign in an attempt to rekindle his relationship with independent voters, claimed it was 'all the Tea Party's fault', a relief, it was said for George Bush who has been getting blamed for everything during the past 3 years.
Obama went on to fault the S&P for faulty accounting used in their decision for the downgrade, saying, "they obviously don't know how to add 2+2 and get 5. My money's on Tim....if he says we're doing fine, than we're doing fine...he probably just hasn't been able to find that excess $2T he tucked away somewhere!"
A spokesman for the S&P ridiculed the President and his assessment. "We were looking for over $4T in debt and expense deduction, to blame it on the very people who were fighting for the reduction is absurd....and this from a man who has a Treasury Secretary who can't figure out his own taxes!"
Congressman and Tax Cheat Charles Wrangle (D,NY) was quick to pile on. "It's ridiculous, I know for a fact we can't possibly owe that much....there's too many zero's on that debt...just erase one and we'll be fine, I do it all the time!"
Congressman Alcee Hastings agreed. "We're the congress, we don't need no stinking rules, we make 'em up as we go!" Hastings was one of only 6 federal judges ever impeached for taking bribes during a scandal over Miami drug dealers buying their way out of his court. Hastings was elected to Congress by an overwhelming majority of his constituents, mostly from Panama, Columbia and Guatemala.
As Michelle was overheard saying to one of her guests, "ain't this egg plant parmesan bitchin'....them Wops really know how to eat and throw a party!"
As the party goers cavorted in the pool Jethro Tull entertained with his hip hop song, "Bungle in the Jungle," Obama's new favorite rallying anthem:
"Hmmm, Hmmm, Hmmm Let's bungle in the jungle --- well, that's all right by me. I'm a tiger when I want love, but I'm a snake if we disagree
Screw the constitution, that's awright by me Ain't gonna eat dose peas, and sure ain't gonna drink dat Tea
New days be comin', dat be sure Rich folk be rantin' and stompin' dere feet, make no nevermind to me
So mix that Kool Aid, drink it down, get ready to rumble Don't mind that DOW takin' that tumble
It don't be 'rel-e-vent' as my Daddy once tolt me just like that bad Viet Nam, It Don't Mean Nothin'
