President Obama- and yes I only capitalized the “p” in president because it was at the beginning of the sentence…. Anyway, as I was saying, president Obama can be best described as the anti-president. He apparently doesn’t care much for getting things done as long as not doing something doesn’t interfere with neglecting keys areas.

Got it?

Because, there are some areas in which action is absolutely unacceptable to the country’s first Chief Neglectative Officer; and yes, the phrase C.N.O.? I will capitalize it; it’s THAT important.

Freed from responsibilities to the rest of us- since he never has to run for re-election again, he has “flexibility;” Obama can in the next four years become the community re-organizer that he always dreamed of.

So, now what he did for Chicago, he can do for the entire country.

Ezra Klein is an Idiot


It’s almost as if one of his fathers once told him “Son, one day you’ll be president of Indonesia or Malaysia or- dream of dreams- China. And I want you to bring the smallest mind and the least amount of imagination to the job. Far more important than doing anything is collecting lists of people’s email addresses, phone numbers and fishy internet rumors. I don’t know what any of that means, but I know in that way, you can narrowly hold on to power. And the reign of inaction can continue.”

So in tribute to the great man of inaction, our first Chief Neglectative Officer, I’ve compiled a list of things Obama doesn’t care about.

This way you can just dismiss these things as unimportant.

Because Obama’s REALLY tired of hearing about stuff you think is important, ok?
