America Scorns Obamas

As hope and change turns to despair and decline for ordinary Americans, the country's First Couple have reported a spate of hostile encounters with the general public.

During one PR trip to Target, Michelle Obama described being disrespected by a shopper, even though she is the First Lady of the most powerful country in the world.

"I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf," stated Michelle Obama, who is 5'11".

Michelle also described how her husband, who has had a disastrous slump in popularity, is often mistaken as a waiter. "He was wearing a tuxedo at a black-tie dinner, and somebody asked him to get coffee," Michelle told People magazine. President Obama also told the magazine how he is treated as a valet, after coming out of restaurants.

Chowing Down

Reuters reports that President Obama's approval rating with the public stands at a dismal 37% and according to Pew data, median wealth for lower income American households is less now than it was in the 1980s, dropping from $11,400 in 1983 to $9,300 last year.

There's change we can believe in and well done, millionaire, limo-lib socialists. Rumors that the Obamas drive their own cars or take things down from shelves, themselves, are entirely without foundation. Obviously.

Does that mean that if I were to ask Barack to fetch coffee that he'd refuse? What if I asked him to seat Pretty Jenny, Brighid and I near the window? Dare he refuse?

Someone asked Obama to get them some coffee? I wonder which Democrat that was.

I think he'd be a foolish man to say no, LL.

That's a very good question, Infidel. I'll wager a liturgical dance troupe against any three of your priestesses that it was Hillary.

But maybe you disagree?

If Obama showed up at a party with a platter of sweet and sour shrimp, skewered with one of those little plastic swords, it would be bad manners not to take one.

However if Michelle was passing a tray of champagne, I'd fear that she spit in my glass and it would be ok to pass on that.

Interesting. But what if Barack gave the treatment to the shrimp/

Untrustworthy servant style?
