obama smiling

Why is Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew standing at the POTUS podium?

And what in the world is POTUS thinking about?

Ok, this pic needs a good caption.

TAMS: go for it! 🙂

    Seriously I laughed out loud – I almost have no words for such a vacant goofy look, but here goes:
    “Ahh, my plan is working perfectly – Frank, Alinsky, mommy and daddy would be as proud of me as I am”.

    Obama: I hope the drugs wear off before my tee time.
    Lew: I have been authorized to state that I know nothing.

    I think this pic is from Lew being announced as Treasury Secretary last year. Here’s another pic that I believe is from the same event. Obama has a somewhat strange inside joke look in this one. http://cnsnews.com/image/jack-lew-barack-obama

    Here is a good longish HuffPo column from a year ago on the selection of Jacob Joseph ‘Jack’ Lew as Treasury Sec. The article is critical of Lew, Geithner, Clinton, Obama, Boehner, et al., gives credit to Tea Party for helping to stop bad budget law, and says a number of things about Wall St. financial intersect with fed. gov’t that Tammy has said. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/william-k-black/jacob-lew-another-brick-i_b_2446848.html

    Everytime he grins, it reminds me of the line in Hamlet “That one may smile and smile and be a villain.” Act 1 Scene 5. Hope it’s not curtains for us.

    POTUS thinking: (What treasury)

    OBummer: “Yep, I screwed up.”
    Lew: “Wait’ll you get a load of me.”
    Americans: “Make IT stop!”

    Being Not There:

    President “Bobby”: Mr. Gardner, do you agree with Ben, or do you think that we can stimulate growth through temporary incentives?

    [Long pause]

    Jack the Gardener: As long as the roots are not severed, all is well. And all will be well in the garden.

    President “Bobby”: In the garden.

    Jack the Gardener: Yes. In the garden, growth has it seasons. First comes spring and summer, but then we have fall and winter. And then we get spring and summer again.

    President “Bobby”: Spring and summer.

    Jack the Gardener: Yes.

    President “Bobby”: Then fall and winter.

    Jack the Gardener: Yes.

    Benjamin Rand: I think what our insightful young friend is saying is that we welcome the inevitable seasons of nature, but we’re upset by the seasons of our economy.

    Jack the Gardener: Yes! There will be growth in the spring!

    Benjamin Rand: Hmm!

    Jack the Gardener: Hmm!

    President “Bobby”: Hm. Well, Mr. Gardner, I must admit that is one of the most refreshing and optimistic statements I’ve heard in a very, very long time.

    [Benjamin Rand applauds]

    President “Bobby”: I admire your good, solid sense. That’s precisely what we lack on Capitol Hill.

      Wikip: “The Career of Nicodemus Dyzma (Polish title: Kariera Nikodema Dyzmy) is a 1932 Polish bestselling novel by Tadeusz Dołęga-Mostowicz….”

      It is alleged that Being There by Jerzy Kosiński is a plagiarism of The Career of Nicodemus Dyzma.

    Lew: Here is how we will starve America into submission!

    Obama: I beat Tiger Woods in golf!

    Obama thinking: “I could totally do his job better than he does.”

    Wonder if I can get my old choom gang government positions here? Then we could all have choom parties again (smiles).

    Oh my goodness, I must need new glasses. When I first looked at this picture, I thought it was Sean Hannity and BO was giving in and saying “yes Sean, you were right all along, and I have been deceiving the people ever since I took the oath of office.”

  12. tamcat says:

    Obama smug as usual, is thinking of all the pain he is going to cause in the transformation, calling his moves tough choices.

  13. Squirrel says:

    Obama: “the only thing I need to know from this clueless moron is, how many obscene vacations can me and the cow take before the country collapses”.
