What's the deal with Obama and Flies?

Apache 2013/01/25 16:17:48

The buzzing insect stole the show as the President announced two new members of his second administration, cutting wild loops around the leader of the free world before landing squarely on his forehead.

The official White House transcript simply reads: "This guy is bothering me here - (swatting at a fly.)"

Meanwhile, the pool report which describes the President's movements throughout the day noted that "the president spoke for about five minutes while being menaced by a house fly".

It wasn't the first time Mr Obama has shared camera time with a fly. In June 2009, the newly-elected president dealt some tough justice to one which interrupted an interview.

And during a 2010 announcement on healthcare reform, Mr Obama cut off an emotional story about an American struggling without health insurance as a fly zipped around him.

    A cowboy from Texas attends a social function where Barack Obama is trying to gather more support for his Health Plan. Once he discovers the cowboy is from President Bushs home area, he starts to belittle him by talking in a southern drawl and single syllable words.

    As he was doing that, he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his head. The cowboy says, "Y'all havin' some problem with them circle flies?"

    Obama stopped talking and said, "Well, yes, if that's what they're called, but I've never heard of circle flies."

    "Well Sir," t he cowboy replies, "circle flies hang around ranches. They're called circle flies because they're almost always found circling around the back end of a horse."

    "Oh," Obama replies as he goes back to rambling. But, a moment later he stops and bluntly asks, "Wait a minute, are you calling me a horse's ass?"

    "No, Sir," the cowboy replies, "I have too much respect for the citizens of this country to call their President a horse's ass."

    "That's a good thing," Obama responds and begins rambling on once more.

    After a long pause, the cowboy, in his best Texas drawl says, "Hard to fool them flies, though."
