Reporters were stunned yesterday during a Presidential address in the Rose Garden when even the Rats started to leave the White House as Obama began to speak about his newest scheme to control US Banks and tinker with the failing economy.
With the announcement that Obama's bill to control financial institutions had passed, the stock market tanked 346 points in panic selling, which also unleashed panic amongst even the rodents living off scraps from the administration.
As Obama talked to his teleprompters, the last White House rat scurried in front of the podium as he made his way from the Rose Garden to the outer limits of Pennsylvania Avenue and freedom. The rat was seen to be carrying only the clothes on his back, and a few hard earned nuts stored in his mouth as he sought greener pastures and 'change he could believe in.'
Obama's proclamation, preceded by the Regime's fawning love fest with Mexican President Felipe Calderon's arrival to bash the US, seemed to drive the President's approval rating even lower.
Calderon, who showed no humility over the fact that he couldn't improve his own nation's financial situation causing millions of Mexicans to flee illegally to states north of their border to find jobs and money for food, instead urged Congress rather than waste money trying to seal the border, to just send massive amounts of 'Amnesty' money to him instead.
"Just skip the middle man,' he reportedly said, "if you give the money directly to those trying for a better life, you're just wasting your money...they'll only spend it on food and better clothes!"
Calderon, under heavy security due to kidnap and death threats from rival drug cartels, was resplendent in a blue Armani Suit, a custom white shirt from London, and a Regimental Cali Cartel tie from Ciudad Juarez, site of mass killings, mutilations, and disappearances that have spread over to the US side of the border.
Reports have surfaced that Calderon will be moving his Presidential Palace to San Antonio, Texas, where he has recently purchased a 56 acre walled and heavily fortified hacienda in which to conduct the business of his war torn country. Insiders say there is a major network of satellite communication hookups, and he can even pay bills and control wire transfers with his new state of the art Banco Americano Bill Pay System.
Readers of the Spoof may recall that late last year Bo, the White House Dog, was the first to jump ship after he published his 5 part series in the Magazine Section detailing his dysfunctional life with the Obama's.
Contacted today from his own 'sanctuary city', Bo opined, "Well, this wasn't entirely unexpected you know! People, and even us animal critters can see the handwriting on the wall. When opinion polls show 84% of the population from both political sides favor controlling immigration, and you still continue to insult your constituents, the dog poo is going to hit the fan!"
Bo, now the father of 5 adorable off spring, said that life away from the Obamas' is 'good', and he expects to be able to come out of the witness protection program possibly by November of this year, "and if not, for sure by January 2012!"
