Little Did He Know When He Picked Up The Reciever...

February 2009- It was a nasty shock for President Obama to have the hot line glow red and ring on his day in office.

"Hello?" he answered cautiously.

"Greetings President Obama. This is the Federation of American Oil Producers."

"What? This is supposed to be a direct line to the Premiers of Russia and China!"

"That is how it used to be. The balance of power changed during the Cheney...er... the Bush administration and now we are the first ones to talk to when there is a major problem."

"So what is the problem?" asked Obama, keeping his cool.

"There is a big problem with Detroit not getting a big enough bailout."


"We need to get it put through!"


"Alright, wise guy! Are you aware that the White House is heated by oil?" said the sharp-tongued voice and hung up.

President Obama then heard a click and heard the heaters winding down. He felt the temperature hover and then perceptively start to drop on this 0 degree day in February.
