Washington crossed the Delaware while Obama crossed his fingers


December 1776 was a desperate time for George Washington and the American Revolution. The ragtag Continental Army was encamped along the Pennsylvania shore of the Delaware River exhausted, demoralized and uncertain of its future. 


exhausted, demoralized and uncertain of its future

THAT sure sounds familiar. We know how the above story ended (or at least we should).

"The weather was horrendous and the river treacherous. Raging winds combined with snow, sleet and rain to produce almost impossible conditions. To add to the difficulties, a significant number of Washington's force marched through the snow without shoes. " 

Against impossible odds and through grit, determination, leadership and a sheer force of will, Washington crossed the Delaware and defeated tyranny.

Meanwhile, March, 2014 was also a desperate time, yet Obama chooses to boogie board in the Florida surf and afterwards get frozen flavored ice chip treats for his vacationing family. Sad how far we've fallen, isn't it?

Never a Great White when you need one...

In a perfect world, dozens of jellyfish would wrap around his testicles and let him know the arrogance of his ways have consequences.

Ed, racist sharks are not allowed! How about a hungry Hammerhead instead?

Jess, The jellys might have difficulty finding evidence of those.

UPDATE: Chattering Teeth blog was contacted by the WH to let us know that if for full disclosure, and in keeping with the comparison to Washington's ragtag army of patriots, that Obama's posse also went shoeless (on the beaches of Florida).

OK, a Not So Great White.

ED! OH MY GOSH! I thought DaBlade's post was fabulous and funny, but your remark will have me laughing all evening when I think of it!
THANKS.

Ah, yes....the American leader type sure has changed, hasn't he?

That reminds me of something funny (Why, I don't know)...Mark Levine recently said he's working on a book like those by O'Reilly, and he's going to call it KILLING GARFIELD..or MCKINLEY.
Why that cracked me up, I'll never know.. :-)

Hi Z! I was happy to see that you have a working PC again! And yes, Ed and Jess crack me up on a daily basis. As for Levin, I've been listening to his daily rewinds pretty regularly for the past few months. Love that show!
