Not Ready for Prime Time

If Obama's just gonna read off of a big T.V. screen, why not skip to the chase and broadcast the T.V. screen? This solves a whole host of issues such as:

1. He doesn't have to break a sweat pretending to care about America.
2. It's less like lying if you read it.
3. Obama doesn't have to miss his favorite T.V. shows to give some boring speech about dumb stuff he doesn't really want to talk about any way.
4. Little kids can learn to read while getting brain washed.
5. Obama doesn't have to answer any icky questions from the mean old press.
6. It will prepare the public for the future of mandatory, daily mind cleansings.
7. Put the speech to John Williams Star Wars theme song, moving the text from foreground to background, and people might be lulled in to reading it, hoping that Star Wars is gonna start any minute. But then you should probably play Star Wars immediately following so people don't get pissed. That only works once.

This is what he spends his time doing, as written by the NYT:

"But these days, President Obama and his wife, Michelle, are popping up all over this city.

Like basketball? There was Mr. Obama sitting courtside recently alongside astonished fans at the Verizon Center as he cheered on the Chicago Bulls in a losing battle against the Washington Wizards.

Enjoy the performing arts? The Obamas have been to the Kennedy Center twice, once to see the Alvin Ailey dance troupe — with daughters Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7 — and once for a musical tribute to Senator Edward M. Kennedy.

How about a tasty meal? The Obamas have enjoyed white-tablecloth dining at Equinox, Bobby Van’s Steakhouse, B. Smith’s and Georgia Brown’s, and street-corner casual at Ben’s Chili Bowl and Five Guys Burgers and Fries."

I am so glad that Obama is using his time as president to enjoy Washington DC like a tourist. Didn't he do these things while he was senator? It's not like he never stepped foot in DC before being elected president...I'm sure he had Five Guys before he took office and I am sure it tasted the same then as it does now that the American people have anointed him The One with their votes.
