Fourteen questions for Dear Leader

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Sometime during the next few years, Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama, will descend from his pedestal in heaven to grant us worthless peons a press conference. Those in media, who will spend that time groveling before the Great Won, need not read further.

The rest, if you're willing to grow some cajones, may peruse the following questions and take some steam out of Limbaugh and Beck, as it's been a long time since the last presidential press conference.

Time to shake off the cobwebs and hone those questions!

As always, I'm willing to help:

Mr. President:

After promising no less than eight times that all HC deliberations would be broadcast live on C-Span and legislation would be posted on the net for 72 hours before voting, do you still consider your administration to be the most transparent in history?

Yesterday, you blamed one of the biggest Democrat defeats ever on the Bush Administration. At what point, if any, will you stop blaming the previous administration for your failures?

Do you really believe, as your Press Secretary Gibbs said, that people elected Senator-elect Brown because they were angry at their circumstances and not at your and the Dem run Congress' policies and practices?

The Congressional Black Caucus, Jesse Jackson and John Conyers have been critical of you regarding your lack of attention to poor blacks, where unemployment is running two to three times worse than the general population. Can you explain this?

Everything you do benefits unions at the expense of taxpayers, small business and jobs for non-union Americans. Why?

Could you explain why you approved the open bribing with taxpayer money of Senate and House votes for health care?

Warren Buffett, one of your early backers, doesn't understand why you are punishing banks and excluding Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Mr. President, could you explain it in such a way that even Mr. Buffett could understand?

Break Time

Letter from JWR publisher

My wife claims that seven power points are the maximum the human brain can tolerate in one sitting. In my capacity to be sensitive and to ensure my present sleeping accommodations, I'll pause now.

This way I can show compassion for both wifey and reader. Therefore by the pundit invested in me, I'm advising a toilet, refreshment, eye rubbing, FB, e-mail or nap break. I've even limited these choices to seven.

Now you can tolerate the next seven power points without your brain exploding.

Thanks, Honey!

Mr. President:

Did you understand your sworn oath to uphold the Constitution as it was written? Can you explain how you can approve of a federally mandated purchase of health insurance which goes directly against the Tenth Amendment?

Just how clueless is it to criticize a man for driving a pick-me-up truck in a political campaign? Isn't this evidence you are totally out of touch with the average American?

How does it feel to be the lowest rated president in American history for the first year in office?

If you thought there was a credible threat of attack on your wife and children, wouldn't you do everything the Bush Administration legally did to obtain this information from captured enemy combatants?

Are the rumors about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton resigning to run against you in 2012 true? Care to comment?

Executive orders 13524 and 13528, signed by you on 12/16/09 and 1/11/10 respectively, gave immunity powers to Interpol and created a committee of ten governors under your control. This group would increase and coordinate military capability within our borders. Based on your earlier comments that the country needs a civil militia as strong and well funded as our regular armed forces, do you plan on declaring martial law anytime around the elections—I mean in a national emergency?

Finally, how is it possible to go from Messiah to Moron in one year?
