What could possibly be getting him down? Let's let World Net Daily tell us:
The strain of the long campaign and a frenetic transition period is beginning to wear on the face of President-elect Barack Obama, who has developed a facial tic under his right eye.Waaahh.... Being President is haaaarrrrrd...... Oh. Wait a second. He's not the President yet. He hasn't even reported for his first day on the job. His job as the President. Of the United States. The leader of the free world. And they're telling us this clown can't even handle the TRANSITION period?
What. a. freaking. joke.
Well, we may as well see what has Bambi so upset:
Besides the economic crisis, Obama is having to worry about his own security. The Secret Service reportedly is dealing with more threats against him than any other president-elect in history.Okay, so he's not excited about threats against his person. I can certainly understand that. The more important issue is how is he going to handle the myriad threats against our country? You know, the ones that come flowing across the transom EVERY. DAMN. DAY.
But, enough about poor downtrodden Barack. How's the fair Michelle doing?
Michelle Obama, who closely monitors her husband's public appearances, is said to be distraught over the facial tic.Oh, no! Distraught, you say? I'm sure we'll be in for some lectures on how we need to work together to ease Barack's pain and stress. Stop complaining about your crippling taxes! Stop fighting the soul-fix that Obama's creating for you! Let go of your piece of the pie! You can finally be proud of this country... stop criticizing The One!
Well, I'm sure something can be done to soothe his jangled nerves. Let's see what the experts say:
...studies show that simple tics disappear during sleep, which suggests that a relaxation treatment, such as hypnotherapy, might work better than medication to calm the misfiring nerves during the day.Wow. Hypnotherapy, huh? The thought of the Commander-in-Chief being hypnotized by some hack doesn't do much to calm MY nerves. Will we be able to make him cluck like a chicken every time the phone rings? (Hmmm, on second thought, that might be kinda funny.... also, it might actually be an improvement...)
Here's another thing that's supposedly got him hot and bothered:
Walters asked Obama if that means he will get his BlackBerry back. In response, Obama says, "Well, I'm, I'm negotiating to figure out how can I get information from outside of the ten or 12 people who surround my office in the White House. Because, one of the worst things I think that could happen to a president is losing touch with what people are going through day to day.'Holy Moses on a Handcart! Is he kidding? He doesn't understand why he can't keep his stupid toy? How about the fact that sending sensitive documents out into cyberspace could put National Security in jeopardy? Also, there's the matter of something we like to call the Presidential Records Act. It's a little rule that puts his correspondence into the public record and up for public review. But Barack says "To Hell with all that!" He wants it, dammit. He'll cry 'til he gets it.
Something tells me that he has no idea what he's in for. If he can't understand the security issues that would force him to give up his BlackBerry, I don't think he can comprehend the vast responsibility that is about to be dumped on his arrogant head.
And if he is ALREADY stressed out enough to develop a chronic tic, God help us all when Russia makes another move toward Poland, Ahmadinejad starts sword-rattling in Israel's direction and the economy tanks. We'll find him in the Lincoln bedroom with his blankie and his smokes... just trying to keep the nerves at bay. And I suppose he'll also have his BlackBerry... Presumably he'll be trying to e-mail an adult to tell him what to do about running the country.
We are in for a very bumpy ride.
