  1. Jay Tea says:

    “…and when I snap my fingers, you will awaken feeling refreshed and with an overwhelming urge to pass this bill!

    Sadly for Obama, the only person it worked on was Biden.


  2. Mr. Prosser says:

    “And I’m saying right now, the country will recover when we all quit wearing these wussy, polka-dot, pastel ties.”

  3. John Burgess says:

  4. Maggie Mama says:

    Nothing to see here, just pass the bill, and move along.

  5. Maggie Mama says:

    And as Nancy Pelosi so aptly put it, we have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it.

  6. JKB says:

    The politics of ties. Obama, true blue. Boehner, pink but not a hint of blue. Biden, going purple.

  7. rodney dill says:

    …In honor of $1.5 Trillion in new taxes proposed…

    Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir,
    so that more can go to the Fed.
    For, O bama’s right. Aah.

    Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir,
    so that more can go to the Fed.
    For, O bama’s right. Aah.

    A wife and a kids, need universal health care.
    ‘More Taxes,’ he says, ‘I’ll need to receive.’
    For, O bama’s right. Aah.

    credit them a-tear up, the bailout’s all gone.
    Now you gonna end up in a socialist slide.*
    For, O bama’s right. Aah.

    It’s getting warm, we done some harm
    The globe is outta norm. Gore sounds the alarm.
    For, O bama’s right. Aah.

    (repeat last four)

    For, O bama’s right. Aah.

    For, O bama’s right. Aah.

    For, O bama’s right. Aah.

  8. Maggie Mama says:

    And last but certainly not least, I’ve been assured this bill will jump my poll numbers up at least 7 points.

  9. JKB says:

    Up the left – N. Ireland phrase. Describes something gone wrong or something in bad shape.

  10. JKB says:

    “There is something wrong in this country. I just can’t put my finger on it.”

  15. The Captain of the Crimson Permanent Assurance speaks.

  16. mannning says:

    Its Going to be My Care or No Care!

  17. mannning says:

    Republicans, we don’t need your support! My program will pass without you, so just stay out of my way!

  18. mannning says:

    I am today calling for bipartisan support, and a meeting to come to a compromise, followed by a joint resolution–the one I have here!

  19. mannning says:

    We are drowning in debt, 20% of our workers are out of a job, we can’t find my compromise on Cap and Trade, and I really hate those trips I have to take all over the place because I can’t seem to get my golf scores any lower no matter which course I try!

  20. mannning says:

    You Supremes aren’t helping me get things done, damn it!

  21. mannning says:

    Listen up! Congressmen, give me your proxy votes so I can pass all of my program in a fortnight!

  22. mannning says:

    I won!

  23. And in conclusion, I killed Bin Laden.

    “Solyndra could have made this microphone if it weren’t for the Chinese or Japanese.”

  26. KRM says:

    But this microphone goes to eleven.

  27. “In summary, to paraphrase the Great Wimpy: ‘If you’ll pass my Jobs Bill today, I will gladly pay you back tomorrow.”

  28. “First, I want to assure every American that my spinal transplant surgery was a complete success. And to prove it, I’m going to introduce you to my little friend…I call him, Bill Jobs. I mean Jobs Bill.”

  29. John425 says:

    Joe Biden thought bubble: “No, Barack. You use the MIDDLE finger when speaking of the GOP.”

  30. Boehner Thought Bubble: “These speeches would be a lot more fun if I could play a drinking game while I’m sitting here.”

  31. “Therefore, carving my face into Mount Rushmore doesn’t merely serve my ego. But really does put thousands of unemployed Americans back to work.”

  32. mannning says:
