History was made in our nation's capitol Friday when the country's first all-White Black president joined forces with the first half-White Black president to explain why the country's economy remains in the red.
Although the press conference about Obama's proposed tax compromise with the GOP was supposed to be handled by the alleged president, he quickly turned the podium over to Bill Clinton in hopes that skeptical Democrats would listen more favorably to the popular ex-president. Unfortunately for Barry, once Bill Clinton got behind that presidential seal, he had no intention of giving it back.
Obama fidgeted at the side of the stage, checked his fingernails, drew circles in the rug with the toes of his highly-polished shoes, then mumbled something about having "kept the first lady waiting" and that he needed to go attend a Christmas party or something. A really, really good party. "And you guys aren't invited," he probably huffed...chewing his stitched lip to hold in the tears as he ran away.
Actually, we're pretty vague on the details of Obama's awkward departure because, frankly, everyone was glad to see him leave whatever the heck his reasons were...including the reporters who happily continued peppering Mr. Clinton with questions while Obama presumably sulked by a punch bowl.
In truth, it was a very odd sight to see Mr. Obama pushed unwillingly out of the presidential spotlight by a member of the Clinton family. Though we wouldn't be surprised to see it again when the 2012 primaries roll around.
