Poor Barack Obama. First he didn't get an invitation to Chelsea Clinton's wedding ("It's going to ve a very small, inexpensive ceremony," Hillary told him. "Just six people, and afterwards we're going to Cici's pizza for the buffet.")
And now, Congressional Democrats are telling the alleged president that the best way he can help them get re-elected is by staying far, far away.
Considering the stress of all these rejections, the president should consider treating himself to a relaxing first-class, five-star, taxpayer-funded luxury vacation in Spain with Michelle!
Oh, that's right.
She's going without him.
3/19/2011 Update - I chose this cartoon for the weekend rotation for several reasons. First and foremost, the snub from Hillary about Chelsea's wedding was nothing compared to Mrs. Clinton's definitive statement this week that she wouldn't work under Obama during a second term, in any position, for any reason. Insiders suggest she can no longer tolerate the president's inability to make a decision or take a stand on matters of international importance.
But the cartoon is additionally relevant because since it first appeared, Mr. Obama has also been snubbed for an invitation to the Royal Wedding in England, and there has been a 90% drop in requests for the alleged president to speak at high school commencements.
Oddly enough, when Obama is enthusiastically invited somewhere, he refuses to go. For instance, his presence (actual or even rhetorical) was requested by the people of Iran, the people of Egypt, and the people of Libya...but the president stood them up.
Which is why his popularity, and America's image, continues to plummet.
