The Religion Of Peas

What is it about Obama and various types of vegetables?

Candidate Obama was outraged by the price of arugula at Whole Foods in Iowa.

“Anybody gone into Whole Foods lately and see what they charge for arugula?” the senator said. “I mean, they’re charging a lot of money for this stuff.”

Well, he would have been had they existed

The state of Iowa, for all of its vast food production, does not have a Whole Foods, a leading natural and organic foods market. The closest? Omaha, Minneapolis or Kansas City.

But that’s alright; things can get confusing when you’re all Super Geniusy or so I’ve been told.

And today we were told that

“I’ve been hearing from my Republican friends for some time it is a moral imperative to tackle our debt and deficits in a serious way,” Mr. Obama said. “What I’ve said to them is, let’s go.”

The president said today he would not accept a smaller, short-term deal. “We might as well do it now,” he said. “Pull off the band aid. Eat our peas.”

To his credit, Mr. Obama has tackled our deficits in a serious way

I humbly submit that no one has every put more hurt into the deficit than this man.

    He could have said eat your broccoli and then we would know we are really in bad shape.

    Oh, Obama is indeed tackling the deficit problem in a serious way.

    Deadly serious.

    Only people he can sell his economic plans to.

    Barack and Obama go together like peas and carrots.

    I hate peas and carrots.

    Our Prime Minister went there too last month. Her party’s primary vote is now down to just 27%. I’m half-convinced that whoever writes these clankers for our leaders is an undercover VRWC operative 😉

    Obama is to the economy as Col. Sanders is to chicken. Do you think it possible that he doesn’t know how badly he has effed up?

    Their mind set always outs. He thinks we are children and he knows what is best for us.

    Excuse me, you marxist. I know what’s what and I’m not a child. In fact, I’m adult enough to understand your infantile stunts.

    I’ll eat peas but absolutely won’t eat Brussels Sprouts, even when cooked with bacon like trickster Bingley recently tried.

  10. Mr. Bingley says:

    Bacon AND butter.

    Damn, they were yummy. You didn’t upset me by leaving more for me, I can assure you.

    “Pull off the Band-Aid” and “Eat our peas”? And the MSM has the gall to say *Bush* was a bad speaker? He never tried crap like this.

    syd B., what makes you think he’s ‘effed up’ – by his standards?
