The sad reality on Labor Day:
It’s National Empty Chair Day, and here’s my contribution to this great American holiday inspired by the Barack Obama presidency.
A story for background:
While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old Texas rancher, whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.
Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his bid to be our President.
The old rancher said, ‘Well, ya know, Obama is a ‘post turtle’.’
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a ‘post turtle’ was. The old rancher said, ‘When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a ‘post turtle’.’
The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor’s face, so he continued to explain.
‘You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he is up there, and you just wonder what kind of a dumb ass put him up there!.’
Now for Obama and the metaphor of the empty chair:
“You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he is up there, and you just wonder what kind of a dumb ass put him up there.”
As Clint Eastwood put it:
“When somebody doesn’t do the job, we got to let them go.”
We got us a Chairman ObaMao for an empty chair, that’s our problem:
It’s time for voters to get pissed off and be like Bobby Knight and just let the damn empty chair go:
There are far too many Americans under this failed presidency who are ending up like this:
No more empty chairs. Vote Obama out!
This post was inspired by a FreeRepublic forum article. The pics came from there (with the addition of the post turtle that mysteriously ended up on one chair). There are quite a few funny takes that are worth seeing.
Update: Ooh, look! Democrats have their OWN version of “Empty Chair Day!” Democrats are busing in “Astroturf” Democrats by the thousands to create the bogus illusion that Obama somehow DOESN’T suck. That’s because in North Carolina, Mitt Romney has an 18-point lead over “the empty chair” on the issue of the economy.
Update, 9/6/12: I received the following comment to another article that made me laugh out loud:
IF anyone is in NC they should get into Bank of America stadium put up an empty chair with an Obama sticker and film the DNC convention of the empty chair talking to the empty chairs.
President “Empty chair” was afraid that there would be way, WAAAAAAY too many empty chairs at Bank of America Stadium.
For the record, the skies are clear in Charlotte, North Carolina.
