Giving Them The Business

It seems like we’ve barely stopped producing turkey-scented burps, and already the next big holiday season is upon us! Yes, Kwanzaa is nearly here, and Barack Hussein Obama took time out from raising taxes on small businesses and forcing them to lay off employees to go shopping on “Small Business Saturday.”

The president visited a small independent bookstore where he posed for photos and then quickly purchased 15 children’s books – the titles of which had been previously programmed into his Blackberry (no, really). The children’s books will be given out as gifts, presumably to constituents who have mastered the instructions for their Obamaphones and are ready to move on to more challenging reading material.

According to the Whitehouse website, “It’s great to find the perfect gift from a small business. Often, when you carry it to the counter, you can see the business owner’s eyes light up. They tell a story about how that gift was made. Or where it came from. Or how it’s a one-of-a-kind. And the gift immediately becomes even more meaningful and special. Moments like that are what makes the holidays magical.”

Um, no. Buying things doesn’t make the holidays magical, no matter how much the president confuses commerce and magic. In reality, the business owner’s eyes probably aren’t lighting up, they’re simply brimming with tears over finally making one last miserable sale in the final days of his shop’s existence in this wretched Obamaconomy.

    Children’s books are probably of Big Bird sitting on Obama’s lap.

    If he showed up at my place of business, I’d kick his thieving ass out.

    Just about every business he graces with his royal presence goes out of business shortly after the blessed visitation. Except in one case where the owner died hours later. I wouldn’t let him in the door.

    Idiots. He’s just happy he sold something in this clusterf*ck of an 0bama economy.
