Washington Post: Washington. President Barack Obama today took the podium during a philosophical debate at Boston University.
In a speech prepared by his advisers the President 'showed' awesome knowledge of Oriental and Western philosophy until his earpiece fell out much to the merriment of George Bush Junior who was in the audience.
George is very good friends with Boston College and recently campaigned that a credit card be named after it. The BC Credit Card allows its blessed owner to have his/her confession heard at discount prices determined by time taken... much like a taxi service.
Pay by the Minute Confessions were sure to catch on argued the ex-president particularly among Mexicans and Irish and the female waitresses of Bohemian Grove.
Obama, fists clenched, gave a rousing speech on the undying authenticity of the 'American Dream' and its benefits to Mankind without making even a single reference to Cancer. He stressed specifically the necessity of total control of humanity in this pursuit.
At the closing of the session, the President faced a difficult question from recent BC graduate Sean Kelly who asked:
"Mister President, is confusion the conflict between Being and Thinking?"
The President raised one hand to his left ear and appeared to ponder greatly for nearly four minutes before replying:
"I am not exactly sure if I understand the question. It is something we all need to discuss. Of course, I may be going out on a limb here. Time alone will tell. Being is a difficult thing to quantify in my opinion. Next question please."
