Let's look at the current administration this way-- no matter what Obama tries to do, the Republicans will scream, cry and obstruct. By now, he should get the message loud and clear that there is NOTHING he can do to win their support. It's evident that Republicans in congress do nothing but whine and complain even when they have the majority. They are the party of cry babies and the media is on their side. The Obama administration is wasting time trying to appease the party that can NEVER be appeased. Period.
Michael Moore suggested Friday night on Real Time with Bill Maher that he take over Rham Emanuel's job and kick some ass to get this country on the right track. Sure, there will be protests and complaints galore, but what else is new?
Michael has published an open letter to President Obama with a plan.
Dear President Obama,
I understand you may be looking to replace Rahm Emanuel as your chief of staff.
I would like to humbly offer myself, yours truly, as his replacement.
I will come to D.C. and clean up the mess that's been created around you. I will work for $1 a year. I will help the Dems on Capitol Hill find their spines and I will teach them how to nonviolently beat the Republicans to a pulp.
And I will help you get done what the American people sent you there to do. I don't need much, just a cot in the White House basement will do.
Now, don't get too giddy with excitement over my offer, because you and I are going to be up at 5 in the morning, 7 days a week and I am going to get you pumped up for battle every single day (see photo). Each morning you and I will do 100 jumping jacks and you will repeat after me:
"THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ELECTED ME, NOT THE REPUBLICANS, TO RUN THE COUNTRY! I AM IN CHARGE! I WILL ORDER ALL OBSTRUCTIONISTS OUTTA MY WAY! IF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DON'T LIKE WHAT I'M DOING THEY CAN THROW MY ASS OUT IN 2012. IN THE MEANTIME, I CALL THE SHOTS ON THEIR BEHALF! NOW, CONGRESS, DROP AND GIVE ME 50!!"
Then we will put on our jogging sweats and run up to Capitol Hill. We will take names, kick butts, and then take some more names. If we have to give a few noogies or half-nelson's, then so be it. In our pockets we will have a piece of paper to show the pansy Dems just how much they won by in 2008 -- and the poll results that show the majority of Americans oppose the Afghanistan and Iraq wars and want the bankers punished. Like drill sergeants, we will get right up in their faces and ask them, "WHAT PART OF THE PUBLIC MANDATE DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND, SOLDIER?!! DROP AND GIVE ME 50!"
I know this is the job Rahm Emanuel was supposed to be doing.
Let's face it folks, no one runs for president without a big ego. No one wants to be a mediocre president... why bother? Obama is going to go down in history as a huge failure unless the country starts to get back on track. 2012 is rapidly approaching. Can having Michael Moore as Chief of Staff make things any worse? I don't think so.
