Our Prez

I won't reproduce the photo because it screams 'copyright protected' but Time has a photo of the Bamanator on prom night in Hawaii. It looks like a fun night, two best friends and their girls, out to have fun.

But what jumps out at me isn't the picture, it's what Barry wrote in his friend's girlfriend's yearbook. This is your prez:

It has been so nice getting to know you this year. You are extremely sweet and foxy, I don't know why Greg would want to spend any time with me at all. You really deserve better than clowns like us; you even laugh at my jokes! I hope we can keep in touch this summer, even though Greg will be gone. Call me up, and I'll buy you lunch sometime. 979-[smudged number]. Anyway, good luck in everything you do, and stay happy.
Your friend,
LOVE [heart sign]
Barry Obama
That's the kind of guy he is and was: the best friend who will move in on your girl while you're away at college. Too cynical? Nah, "even though Greg will be gone" and a phone number sort of say it all.

"Maybe we can all get together when Greg comes back" would be different but what Barry was saying was: "call me when his plane takes off." Nice guy.

I knew he was a snake when I first met him...

What we on the Right fail to realize-at our peril- is that to far far too many people, his doing this makes him a 'player', and it is to be admired.
That is the real problem.

The only thing that surprises me is that he was after Kelli and not Greg. Maybe he needed a beard and hadn't met M'Chel yet.
