The "Obama" Ship (of State)

The “Obama” Ship

I once heard Obama and his cohorts agenda explained like this:

(made me think…….)

If the American economy were like this huge ship (maybe even an “Ark”?) on the ocean, fulla peeps, and you wanted to take it over…..one thing you could do would be to.....

Just take out the rudder. You’d now have have control of the peeps (they’d be more scared by the minute) – totally under your control.

But of course, you wouldn’t have control of the ship! So as it listed and bounced around the waves, the peeps inside get more and more afraid, and more dependent on you.

Trouble is, you still don’t have control of the “ship”!

Now you got the ship, and all the peeps, more and more all the time so you’ll be sure to be elected Captain – but to save yourself, you gotta get control back. And you don’t know how to replace the rudder.

So, you get some self-ascribed “experts” around you – but you soon realize they are all hot air (kinda like you)…… Now what do you do?

Do you go below decks and try and find a real “expert” to get rudder back on, so you can really control the ship and save everyone? Or do you just go below decks and take all their money, in case another ship comes by and you can “bail” with all their money?

Hmmmm………. rudder ship save decks money case ship bail money hmmmm

It won't be long before the rest of the nation is following California down the toilet, The liberals have already bankrupt our state and their answer isn't cut the benefits for the politicians they want to start laying off the police and firemen. toilet liberals bankrupt answer cut benefits politicians laying police firemen

    ....there are a couple of flaws in your premise. If he opts for the 'real expert', he'd have to 'torture' him (assuming the expert is a regular Joe, like Joe the plumber) to persuadei him to help such a monster as Obama. If he opts to go below and rob the peeps of their money, he loses because he (The 'One') has already rendered it useless with his own 'inflating' policies... Lets face facts, we're screwed.

    We can either continue on in Obama's ship
    continue obamas ship

    Or we can pray for deliverance
    continue obamas ship pray deliverance

    I choose to pray for deliverance from the iceberg that we are headed for under Obama's command.

    Obama is such an arrogant pompous ass

    Obama in L.A.: 'You ain't seen nothing yet'

    LOS ANGELES — Even as he conceded there is still much hard work to do, President Obama was in a boastful mood Wednesday night, telling a star-studded crowd at a fundraising dinner that he "would put these first four months up against any prior administration since FDR."

    The president, speaking to a dinner that included Hollywood A-listers like Kiefer Sutherland, Marisa Tomei, Jamie Foxx, Ron Howard and Steven Spielberg, lauded the legislation he has signed since taking office but added that he is "not satisfied."



    "I'm confident in the future, but I'm not yet content," Obama said.

    The celebrity dinner, which cost couples $30,400 to attend, was followed by a larger, lower-dollar concert that all told raised between $3 million and $4 million for the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

    Joining the celebrities feting Obama were Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) and Republican-turned-Democratic Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.), "the newest member of our caucus."

    Obama was introduced by Dreamworks CEO and longtime Democratic donor Jeffrey Katzenberg. The president thanked Katzenberg, saying: "If it weren't for you, we would not be in the White House."

    The trip here...

    Obama was introduced by Dreamworks CEO and longtime Democratic donor Jeffrey Katzenberg. The president thanked Katzenberg, saying: "If it weren't for you, we would not be in the White House."

    The trip here came on the heels of a fundraising jaunt to Las Vegas to raise about $2 million for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), according to aides.

    The president, while seeking to bolster his record as president so far, warned both audiences that significant challenges lie ahead.



    At the concert, headlined by Jennifer Hudson and Earth, Wind and Fire, Obama responded to an audience member yelling, "Yes we can" by saying, "Yes we have. But we've got more work to do. We can't rest on our laurels.

    "We didn't ask for the challenges that we face, but we don't shrink from them either," he said. "It won't be easy. There will be setbacks. It will take time."

    The president conceded that his administration "had our fits and starts."

    "I've made some mistakes, and I guarantee you I'll make some more," he said.

    But Obama said in promising to continue to work hard, "Los Angeles, you ain't seen nothing yet."

    Obama also lauded Judge Sonia Sotomayor, his pick to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice David Souter, repeating his line that she has more experience than anyone currently sitting on the bench when they were nominated.

    He joked at the second fundraiser that she graduated summa cum laude, "not just magna or laude laude, but summa cum laude."

    Obama is scheduled to leave for Washington early Thursday morning.

    When a ship is sinking the rats are the first ones to jump off. Since the rats are the ones who are sinking this ship, who's going to jump off first?
