Inner Banks Humor - Obama

Petraeus gives Obama 'manly man' shirt

by Rachel Weiner - December 3rd, 2010 - Washington Post

Before speaking to troops in Afghanistan, President Obama got a present from Gen. David Petraeus -- a "manly man T-shirt." The reason? So no one ever elbows Obama in the face during a basketball game again.

President Obama flew 13 hours one way to Afghanistan and spent just under 4 hours on the ground before flying back to America, another 13 hours. Not to honor our troops. He went for two purposes. To distract from the fact that unemployment has started to rise again under his economic lack of leadership. Also to allow the troops to honor him!

Note the last line in the article. When the cheering was not loud enough, Obama actually had the unmitigated gall to ask the soldiers cheer louder for him. I am convinced that next years Webster's Dictionary will have a picture of Obama as the definition of Chutzpah.

Oh. I forgot. He also called Karzai and spoke for 15 minutes. I guess Obama wanted the call to be local for some reason. The second White House press release claimed he wanted to see Karzai face to face but the weather prohibited his helicopter from flying the short distance. Yeah. Right.
