Obama Administration: Guidelines for handling dead horses ...

Many a truth is spoken in jest …

Common sense who have: “When you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount."

However, in the Obama Administration, the requirement for perpetual campaigning rather than governing mandates that you ignore the problem until the media becomes heavily involved. And then the employment of advanced political strategies such as:

1. Buying a stronger whip.
2. Changing riders.
3. Appointing a committee to study the horse.
4. Arranging to visit other countries to see how other cultures ride dead horses.
5. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included.
6. Reclassifying the dead horse as living-impaired.
7. Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse.
8. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase speed.
9. Providing additional funding and/or training to increase dead horse's performance.
10. Doing a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve the dead horse's performance.
11. Declaring that as the dead horse does not have to be fed, it is less costly, carries lower overhead and therefore contributes substantially more to the bottom line of the economy than do some other horses.
12. Rewriting the expected performance requirements for all horses.
13. Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position.

And, if all else fails, throwing the horse under the bus by demanding that the dead horse resign – preferably while Barack Obama is out of the country, playing golf or on vacation.

Bottom line …

This joke came from my best friend Al who regularly assures me that we are all doomed.

However, if we can remove the joker in the While House and his fellow travelers from the House and Senate – we might have a fighting chance to reverse course and restore America to her former glory.
