    Obama: “Not only….will my uh….”Keep The Mortgage In The Family” plan….allow families who did it right…uh…to stay in their crib….if the banks will actually..uh…go along with this…i’ll personally come to each home and go all Picasso all ova the inside”

  2. markm says:

    President Obama suddenly and unexpectedly left a Joint Chiefs meeting Wednesday afternoon and was later photographed painting a homeless shelter. When asked why the President left the meeting so abruptly he responded “that just shows how strong my stimulus package is…it put even me to work”.

  3. markm says:

    President Obama is field testing his yet to be announced “Spring Remodeling and Color Changey Act”. Initial figures show the cost to come in at around a paltry $63 Billion dollars. The new plan will be headed up by the Department of the Interior.

  4. markm says:

    President Obama shows how a crew of Government workers should properly conduct themselves on Federal projects…one person works while three “look busy or watch” and one looks out the window.

  5. Maggie Mama says:

    When push came to shove, the First Lady decided that government workers were best at just standing around and made Barack employ one of his many artistic gifts to repaint the family’s new White House den.

  6. Maggie Mama says:

    Barack is busy painting in the background color of his famous Obama Seal, which will soon grace one wall in each of the 132 rooms of the White House.

  7. G.A.Phillips says:

  8. Elmo says:

    You’ll get blue and like it.

    Everything (and everyone) will be blue, by the time I’m done.

    As long as I keep busy and keep moving, then maybe just maybe … they won’t catch on.

  9. Jay says:

    Our President deftly demonstrating his ability to color inside the lines.

  10. anjin-san says:

    You’ll get blue and like it

    A man with a working brain is now President.

    The bushies are, indeed, blue.

  11. William d'Inger says:

    The Pres still shoots hoops pretty well, but his graffiti skills are rusty.

  12. bystander says:

    BHO demonstrates the art of ‘Liberal Overreach’ which is expected to define his first 100 days in office.

  13. It is a change from the usual Washington whitewash.

    When a reporter dared to ask Obama about the RAT board in the stimulus package, the other reporters dutifully held him down while Obama applied the long end of the roller in an anatomically improbable and uncomfortable manner.

    Obama shows his concerns for the half of the taxpayers who pay 96% of the taxes that were left out of the stimulus bill by helping to get a nice place ready for them.

  14. John425 says:

    Obama is intent upon his decision to cover up all the “Red-Ink” paint with “Liberal Blue” in the hopes that the taxpayers won’t notice.

  15. John425 says:

    Typical union setting. All the workers hang around while the black guy does all the work!

    Obama: OK- now that you have learned “Wax On, Wax Off”, we can move to “Paint the Wall Up, Paint the Wall Down”.

  16. Blue Wall Democrat

  17. ap says:

    after grabbing the roller obama explained his economic policy to the two on-lookers, “when i said i would save jobs, i didn’t mean people would still be employed. i meant i would save people from doing their jobs.”

  18. Wyatt Earp says:

    Obama stars on this week’s episode of Extreme Loan Makeover.

  19. President Obama demonstrates how the stimulus plan will create jobs: one guy paints while four others watch.

  20. It’s always the coverup that gets you.

  21. President Obama fixes America one photo op at a time.

  22. A live demonstration that symbols are for the symbol-minded.

  23. elliot says:

    Yo! Homey, you’ve got paint all over your shirt. I guess you must be a blue collar worker.

  24. (With apologies to Becker and Fagen)

    This is the day of the expanding man.
    That shape is my shade there where I used to stand.
    It seems like only yesterday I gazed through the glass,
    At ramblers, wild gamblers, that’s all in the past.

    You call me a fool, you say its a crazy scheme.
    This ones for real, I already bought the dream.
    So useless to ask me why, throw a kiss and say goodbye.
    I’ll make it this time. I’m ready to cross that fine line.

    …They got a name for the winners in the world, I want a name when I lose.
    They call Alabama the Crimson Tide, call me Deacon Blues.

  25. As clear as an azure sky of deepest summer.

  26. From each according to his ability…

  27. I went to Law School for this?

  28. President Obama makes a mental note to get a new Chief of Staff.

  29. MikeM says:

    Here’s change for you – blue-wash instead of white-wash!

  30. G.A.Phillips says:

    Commander and Chief Zero goes with socialist sissy baby blue instead of the assimilating Communist spilled blood red of his forefather indoctrinators in a effort to show how he has changed the ideology of misery into the hope of stupidity.


    A picture of the dude with the roller and that color coming to wall…in…every…house…neer…you……__________.

  31. G.A.Phillips says:

    Obama-How many stars are on this flag mother……

  32. Elmo says:

    Ode to Dubya ….

    Blue, blue, my world is blue
    Blue is my world now I’m without you
    Gray, gray, my life is gray
    Cold is my heart since you went away

    Red, red, my eyes are red
    Crying for you alone in my bed
    Green, green, my jealous heart
    I doubted you and now we’re apart

    When we met how the bright sun shone
    Then love died, now the rainbow is gone

  33. brainy435 says:

    Wow, I guess the government really WILL do everything for me now!

  34. Maggie Mama says:

    “Off we go into the wild BLUE yonder,
    Climbing high into the sun;
    Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
    At ’em boys, Give ‘er the gun!”

    President Obama has managed an mediocre attempt at the “return” salute but he had no idea where singing the Air Force song would take him.

  35. Cue says:

    “When I say blue, I mean blue. No one in Washington ever listens to me.”

  36. John D says:

    That’s it Mr. President. One more coat of paint, and nobody will be able to read what’s in that stimulus package.

  37. Rachel Edith says:

    Woman In Background Behind Obama – “Ok, this is called work. And what you are doing is called lurk.”

  38. DL says:

    “But boss – you sure diss color be the best one fo da Lincoln bedroom?”

    Obama rolls on.

    The messiah finally figures out a way to cover the long list of tax cheats in his administration.

    “Since I say the sky is falling -I want everything in this Whitehouse blue.”

    ACORN get its first trillion dollar community upkeep bailout.

    And the said he ain’t got no experience.

  39. Hodink says:

    Woman To Man Behind Her – “Looky over there, Randall. There go Gary Condit coming out of the ‘See, I told you I didn’t do it’ closet.”

  40. Elmo says:

    … each paint-by-number kit includes one roller and up to ninety premixed, numbered paints. Ready to be applied to numbered spaces on the accompanying board. As the spaces are filled in, the gradual revelation of a picture surprises and delights.

  41. Al Dawson says:

    “Did I really have this many campaign promises?”
