http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | President Obama enjoyed a five-point jump in the Gallup Poll Thursday in his largest weekly approval gain. No one thought he could get re-elected a year ago. Things were looking pretty bad for President Obama until the Republicans began putting up candidates.
Jimmy Carter sent his condolences to North Korea on the death of Kim Jong Il. The president is furious. When Jimmy Carter issued his condolences, President Obama was just about to hold a press conference to take credit for giving the go order for the heart attack.
Congress passed a two-month extension of the payroll tax cut Friday which included unemployment and other goodies. The GOP wanted a year-long bill but were shamed out of it. Democrats love Christmas so much they want to hand out presents every two months.
Mitt Romney was overjoyed when he received the endorsement of former president George H.W. Bush Thursday. The endorsement always carries an unspoken obligation. Every four years the Bush family endorses the candidate most likely to invade an I-country.
Senator Chuck Schumer ripped a new product called Aero-Shot which lets users inhale a one hundred milligram blast of caffeine gas. It's suspicious. He must have just gotten a donation from Starbucks because he's trying to shut down all competing sobriety products.
U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner slammed Michelle Obama for lecturing Americans on food when she has such a big posterior. She's trying to fight obesity. It doesn't look good when Indonesia sounds a tsunami warning every time an American wades into the Pacific Ocean.
President Obama flew to Hawaii to join Michelle for Christmas vacation Friday. The president looks forward to his annual getaway to Oahu. It's thousands of miles away and it gives him a chance to hang out with all his old buddies from the Starship Enterprise.
