One sunny day in January, 2013, an old man approached the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue where he'd been sitting on a park bench.

He spoke to the U.S. Marine standing guard and said, "I would like to go in and meet with President Obama."


The Marine looked at the man and said, "Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer President and no longer resides here."

The old man said, "Okay," and walked away. The following day the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with President Obama."

The Marine again told the man, "Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Obama is no longer President and no longer resides here."

The man thanked him and again just walked away. The third day the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same U.S. Marine, saying, "I would like to go in and meet with President Obama. "The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, "Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Obama. I've told you already that Mr. Obama is no longer the President and no longer resides here. Don't you understand?"

The old man looked at the Marine and said, "Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it."The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, "See you tomorrow, Sir.

I guess it's the month of the "re-tread" in the Republican Party in honor of Newt, eh?

This joke wasn't funny even when the president in it was Bush.

In Spring of 2013, the Marine will be able to report that Obamacare has been repealed, and that spending has been cut. And that the Republicans now are the majority in the Senate.

It is just a happy American who does not have to eat dog food anymore since the economy is booming and his IRA is soaring.

Your quote assumes that the economy will be booming because of the election results on Nov. 6. So the economy will go from a recession to booming in 2 months (nov-jan)? OK, if you say so.
