It seems President Obama and I have something in common; we both like to use analogies.
I’ll start with his and instead of paraphrasing what he said, I’ll just quote it directly. “It’s like somebody goes to a restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, a martini and all that stuff, then just as you’re sitting down they leave and accuse you of running up the tab.” At which point the crowd he was speaking to erupts into laughter.
Here’s my analogy: Let’s say you wanted to hire a contractor to remodel your bathroom. One comes by and promises he can fix everything and already has a plan. He dazzles you with confidence, filling you with hope that there is a wonderful change headed your way. Even though he has very little experience with this type of work, he is so well spoken and obviously extremely educated that you welcome him into your home and gladly hire him. Soon after he begins, he goes way over budget, unable to finish any of the things he said he could, blames others for his failures, and, years later, your bathroom is still in shambles. Now you decide you want to add another bathroom upstairs. Are you really going to hire the same contractor?
I’ll admit that he is much better at these than I am. He has a way of taking something as serious as the economic crisis our country is currently facing and making crowds of people laugh about it. This could potentially be very helpful to him should he fail to get re-elected in November. I would suggest that he take this newfound skill and develop a stand-up routine. I believe if he were to link up with the likes of Bill Maher, together they could provide the left with endless amounts of rib-splitting humor.
