On the bus tour trail, President Obama was happy to meet somebody with a job:

After shaking a few hands, one local introduced himself to the president and declared he was a funeral director.

“Oh, the funeral home business,” Obama said excitedly. “Fantastic. That’s important work.”

Hopefully Obama kept the guy’s business card for when he needs somebody to embalm the economy.

    Darn. For a minute there I thought you were going to say he met Thomas Sowell. But Sowell would never say the kind of things Obama wants to hear.

    True… Obama has no use for somebody like Thomas Sowell. I mean, Sowell's so misguided that he doesn't think that going deeper into debt is the best way to get out of debt.

    "when he needs somebody to embalm the economy."

    ( Kneeling at casket )

    He looks so peaceful doesn't he? Almost like he did when he was alive. Why I remember when…

    Is that funeral director using "green" solutions to embalm? If not, I'm sure Zero's "green police" will be all over him like chop suey on rice.

    So very true. I was just reading over the transcript of the ABC news Jake Tapper interview with Obama. The long and short of it, Obama says he has made no mistakes and wouldn't do anything differently. The economy would be chugging along if it wasn't for the evil Republicans and by the way it was Bush's fault. Then he goes onto say that Holder new nothing about Fast and Furious and those that are responsible for it will be held accountable (looking for scapegoats by the sound of it).

    Jake Tapper asked some good questions, but fell short on follow ups.

    Doug, when you bring up Obama, a funeral home director and the death of the economy I instantly get an image of Obama going all"Wellstone Memorial" over the economy.

  7. Doug on October 19th, 2011 2:31 pm

    Wellstone's memorial… or maybe Ayatollah Khomeini's funeral…

    Ah HA! Right I mean after all, this stuff is going into the GROUND fouling the water table and the environment of all the other DEAD people that are around him!

    We'll call his clients, The Lucky Ones.

    A bit ironic and sign of the times. Was reading that here in Illinois, Obama's home state, government is no longer able to help pay for funerals. The article is in the local paper today.
