Soon will come the finger-pointing.

Liberals will gnash their teeth, pull their hair and recriminate.

Yes; true, this is normal behavior on the part of liberals. But this time the behavior will be uproarious and hilarious.

Because this time, the folks who brought us Occupy Wall Street won’t be in a drum circle, but in a circular firing squad facing their comrades, their righteous fingers loaded and looking for blame.

“Oh, Chicago!” they’ll say. “Bang, bang.”  

Sure, there will be the typical liberal shots at the “racists” on the right who denied Obama a second term.

But the delicious irony lost on them will be found in their final chant of “It’s all Bush’s fault.” But that irony won’t be lost on history.

Count me amongst those laughing hardest.

Because Obama’s term can best be described as a Harold Ramis movie.

Remember when Obama had to redefine his stimulus program that was supposed to create millions of jobs, to only “saving” millions of government jobs?

“We spent a trillion dollars on what?” Ha, ha.



As Jimmy Kimmel explained at the 2012 White House Correspondents Dinner:

“Mr. President, remember when the country rallied around you in the hopes of a better tomorrow? That was hilarious. That was your best one yet.”

Well not quite.

There was that time that Obama got roughly $90 billion for green energy jobs, or green energy “investments,” as he calls them, which were touted to save us billions of dollars in imported oil and create 5 million green energy jobs.
