With the US economy in the toilet, Obama finds a novel solution

Just thought I’d add one of many pictures of a younger Barack Obama at previous St. Patrick’s day parades. President O’bama is defiantly holding aloft what appears to be a toilet plunger. The political message is unclear: does he mean that the US economy is in the toilet and he’s going to fix it with an Irish toilet plunger? Prizes (not really) for the best caption.

Obama will be hosting not one but two Paddy’s day celebrations at the White House. His VP, Joe Biden who on the campaign trail last year never failed to bring up his Irish Catholic roots, (and who cites Wolfe Tone as a great influence) will also be drowning the shamrock along with Biffo, Marty and Peter Robinson. May they enjoy the radioactive delights of green beer. Lá Fhéile Pádraig Shona Dhaoibh!!

    Looks like he’ll need more than a toilet plunger to clear up the shit left behind by the neo cons .

    Even Senator Grassleigh (Republican -Iowa) has called for the chief executives of (American Insurance Gangsters) AIG to do the honourable thing and resign, or better still do the more honourable thing and commit hari kari like honourable Japanese businessmen who fail their company , employees and disgrace themselves .

    Apparently after suffering the biggest financial loss ever in American business 60 billion dollars these ‘gangsters ‘ have paid themselves some 164 million in pay increases and up to 450 million in bonuses all courtesy of the American taxpayer ? These feckers make Bernard Madoff look like St Vincent De Paul 🙁

    Are these gobshite neo cons looking for red revolution or wha?

    Good man Obama and keep it up (I don’t mean the plunger ) unless it’s to stick it up the clogged arse of greed and corruption that is Rush Limbaugh and his salivating pack of hyenas of neo con dom. Theres no end to the shite that still has to be cleared out 🙁
