Remember when Obama was planning that 17-day vacation in Hawaii? You know, he needed a break from screwing things up; that can be tiring if you do too much of it.
Well, last week, it was suddenly decided that he'd have to stay in town after all. This, right after GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney criticized the president for taking the vacation:
“I just think it’s time to have a president whose idea of being ‘hands on’ doesn’t mean getting a better grip on the golf club,” Romney told potential caucus voters in Iowa.Then, last week, GOP candidate Rick Perry took aim at Obama by way of religion:
As President, I'll end Obama's war on religion. And I'll fight against liberal attacks on our religious heritage.What did Obama do this weekend? He went to church. First time since Easter.
Now, maybe he thought it was Christmas. His calendar does seem to be about 12 days off. Or, he reacted to Perry's attack. Let's go with the latter, because it fits with his reaction to Romney's attack.
This means that Republicans can attack Obama about something, and he'll then react to it.
If we have Gingrich say that the president doesn't understand what it's like to have to flip burgers or wash cars, will we see Obama behind the counter at a Hardee's or working at the car wash?
If Michele Bachmann says the president doesn't know what it's like for families to shop for food on a budget, will we see Obama pushing a shopping cart at the Piggly Wiggly?
So, what can we criticize Obama about and get him to do in response?
Criticize him for not understanding how hard it is to catch a Road Runner. Then, he'll put on some ACME Rocket-Powered Tennis Shoes and go running through the desert.
Say he doesn't understand the plight of bucket inspectors. Then, he'll stick his head in a bucket.
Slam Obama for not understanding how hard things are for Irish Folk Dance performers. Then, he'll dance a jig.
Bring up that people who ride shopping carts down hills are having a difficult time in this economy. And there's only one way for him to understand what they're going through.
Point out how doesn't relate to 1950s motorcyclists from Milwaukee who visits Hollywood with his friends. Then, he'll ... no, never mind this one. Obama jumped the shark a long time ago.
