Obama’s camel tale

An American sat in his tent. President Obama gently thrust his nose under the flap and looked in. “Let me put my nose in your tent (American credit rating downgraded, $6 trillion in national debt). It’s very cold.” “Yes,” said the American, “welcome.”

Later, Obama had not only put his nose in the tent but his head and neck also (National Security Agency disaster, Syria, Benghazi). Obama, who had been restless, said, “I will take but little more room if I place my forelegs within the tent (mocks the Constitution – take your pick of offenses). “Yes, you may put your forelegs within,” said the American.

Finally, the Obama said, “May I not stand wholly inside? “Yes, yes,” said the American. “Come wholly inside. So Obama crowded in (lying, botched Obamacare). The crowded American readjusted. The next thing the American knew, Obama tossed him into the cold. “See, you are free. This is my tent now.” And the Obama was pleased with himself for he got what he wanted while others took the blame. Obama then sold the tent for a palace in the “cash for clunker deal.” “I must be the smartest man alive,” he said, “for I have successfully shafted America.”
