"Mr President, do know how many people lived on ramen noodles to get you elected?"
Mr President, do know how many people lived on ramen noodles to get you elected?
[LOL! One of the FUnnies DUmmie thread titles ever!]
How many gave up savings? How many people gave up entertainment? How many people sensing the collapse of our financial system literally threw you forward like a Hail Mary pass in hopes that you would act in our best interest; you know, the *people* people of the United States?
[I gave up living on raw carrots to eat nothing but Ramen Noodles. Such was the sacrifice I made for our Beloved Barack.]
I'm now unemployed, uninsured, and foreclosed. All of these issues were addressed in your campaign promises. Do you think we as a group of evermore impoverished plain Americans we can preserver as long as the Democratic Asshole Senators can delay? The proof is in: 122 less voters will be available by tomorrow; 4K by the next election.
[Maybe you should have been one of those who lined up in Detroit to get yourself a share of Obama's stash.]
And I know that in the Democratic political strategist minds they are thinking; you're broke, so you really don't count anymore.
[Would it make you feel better to cry into my bowl of Lime Shrimp Ramen Noodles?]
My employment prospects were sent to India and/or simply filled on site with an H1-B. Do you think we could get some relief on that. At least let us know that you're interested in the plight of the plain everyday Americans that sent those small donations?
[Good news! Ramen Noodles are widely available in India as long as they aren't beef flavored.]
Do you think the younger voters that were *so* hyped up about your election are still excited? I was once 18-25 yrs old and I can tell you they are seeing the same old politics of getting served scraps justified with more intellectual arguments. Yes, the crowds love to cheer you--you being a charismatic speaker can work a crowd. However, that glow isn't lasting nearly as long as it used to. There is no "force multiplier". Nobody is going out registering voters or calling their friends. The party is in fact in decline and it's your watch.
[Obama's Ramen Noodle has gone limp.]
The time is at hand ... we need you to work for us now.
[Obama will work to make sure your Ramen Noodles don't have too much MSG.]
(Sry folks, I love that President, but I'm getting frustrated)
[Thus concludes the Ramen Noodle soliloquy. And now on to the rest of the DUmmies...]
he's a millionaire, YOU are not. His friends are from Goldman Sachs. Yours? He has accomplished some good things in his term. But now that he is an insider and no longer a challenger...well things change don't they?
[The big change is that Obama gets arugula as a side with his Ramen Noodles. ]
Can I get in here and take my crap on him, too?
[Did you eat too many Ramen Noodles?]
Since 11/25/08, when I first voiced my "concerns" about the Geithner appointment and got flamed for it here on DU, I have said that we the people were being ignored, and they the bankers were getting all the attention.
[Geithner. The only Episcopalian born in Brooklyn in over 70 years. Hmmmm?]
The U.S. has ONE president.
On a positive note, in New Orleans he said he's just getting started. Keep hope alive!
[Keep Ramen Noodles warmed up!]
I am beginning to think that for the next four years all they are doing is shilling for votes. and going to the wrong side looking for them.
the DC beltway crowd is out of touch.
[Do they serve Ramen Noodles inside the Beltway?]
The problem is that he did not recruit us. A nation of followers lost their leader the day after the election.
[ACORN will trade a bowl of Ramen Noodles for your vote.]
I know MY life went flaming into the crapper right after McCain lost.
[And how many Ramen Noodles flew into that crapper?]
Millions are frustrated. You are not alone and the question remains, "WHERE ARE THE JOBS GOING TO COME FROM??"
[A more important question remains, "WHERE ARE THE RAMEN NOODLES GOING TO COME FROM??"]
