Obama to Switch Party

The piece – for all this obviousness,. has some great lines

President Barack Obama has confided his plans to become a registered Republican some time before the end of the lame-duck session of the 111th Congress. Speaking to his inner circle, he lamented failing to bring the two major parties together. One of his confidants reported Obama saying,

It’s really just one party anyway and clearly the Republicans have the confidence of the people. I can finish my original mission much easier within the GOP.” Sources wouldn’t elaborate on what that mission is.


Obama had gone through a several month period of gloom and despondency starting shortly after the BP oil spill. He felt as though he was forced to attack the hapless, accident prone oil giant in public just to appease popular sentiment. He reportedly told a close adviser, “Don’t the people realize that big business is the engine of the world economy. The gulf will be OK, but will BP survive?”

The faithful are outraged and maybe a little bit scared

The author is a looooong time DUer, a friend, and a good writer.

I’m sorry so many are so thin skinned with pieces like this.
