Yes, Virginia, There is an Obama Claus

A continuation of last year’s letter to Virginia

Dear Virginia,

You may be wondering if there really is an Obama Claus. You have been promised so much but think you haven’t seen any of it. Silly, Virginia. You should know better.

I know you were hoping that “Obama would pay your gas and mortgage.”  But your house is in foreclosure. You haven’t had to make a house payment in months though, right?

I know that you traded in your paid off car only for a car payment you couldn’t afford. But you have a nice car, right? Or has it been repossessed?

I know that you were hoping for health care for all … but have only seen your insurance rates go up and your favorite doctor has decided to retire. But you’ll see that it will be better. After all, we know better than you do.

Oh, Virginia. You hoped that the Government would come to your aid quickly after the horrible BP oil spill, only to find yourself with mounting bills and paperwork and paperwork, only to get a percentage of what you were promised. But it’s all BP’s fault. And all of that off shore drilling. Hey, let’s blame Sarah Palin … yeah. That’s it.

And taxes? Yes, Virginia. Unless Obama and crew pass the Bush tax cuts extension, you will find less in your paycheck and less at tax time. I know you were promised more take home, but Obama Claus needs that money. Besides, it’s all that horrible Bush’s fault for giving you more of your money in the first place.

It’s those crazy Tea Partiers. Yeah, that’s it. Those crazy people who didn’t like the way things were going got out and voted. Now nothing will get done for you, Virginia. People just didn’t give Obama Claus enough time to fix all of the things that the evil Bush messed up. It’s not Obama Claus’ fault. It’s the Tea Partiers.

You silly, silly girl. Don’t listen to Fox News. Keep the faith with Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow. THEY know what is right for you. Just like Obama Claus. And remember, it’s all Bush’s fault.

Virginia, don’t you know that Obama Claus is highly educated? He attended Harvard, therefore is a billion times smarter than you. Don’t you know that? Of course you don’t. You should consider it enough for Christmas that such a wonderful, educated, African American is in charge. So rather than doubting what he’s promised, just be thankful he’s in there.

    I’m not sure which one was better Crunchy…last year’s or this year’s. Either way I LMAO until I again realized that people actually believe in the give aways.

    It makes me sad that people holding the idea that government is here to provide are: allowed to raise kids, have jobs where they influence kids and become a drain on the system. It creates a nanny state…Yes, a nanny state. I think most people are OK with helping people but the programs we see from this administration is not a little assistance, it’s creating a nanny state. It forms a dependency on the government for day-to-day needs on a long term basis andTHAT, I am not OK with.

    I pray that my kids grow up without expecting the government to be the all mighty cheese distruibutor. I talk with them each night while doing homework that they need to work hard on their studies so they can provide for themselves. Tonight I’ll say an additional prayer to God that they are listening, that they will work hard and they will grow up with values that tell them to be self sufficient and not rely on any government to get by. I hope that we don’t elect another Huge Jidette that is going to stiff the next generation to make him/herself look good.

    Merry Christmas,

    @Crunchy: “You silly, silly girl. Don’t listen to Fox News. Keep the faith with Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow. THEY know what is right for you. Just like Obama Claus. And remember, it’s all Bush’s fault.”

    Fox News viewers are the most misinformed. Fact.

    Oh, Onij. Just because the Huffington Post says it, doesn’t mean it is true. Fact.

    (feeling perplexed, Onij scratches his head)

    @Anonymous – not sure why i would disagree with you on that… but, thanks?

    PS. “Fox viewers being the most misinformed” study are the results of a recent survey from University of Maryland, not Huffington Post. Watch Fox news much?

    @benji–You say university of maryland conducted the study like that means something. Just because the #19 party school in the us says it does NOT make it true. Try watching fox sometime so you learn something.
