Hi ATS.

didn´t see this posted.
so thought i´d share with you.


PITTSBURGH—Citing three years of exhausting partisan politics, constant gridlock in Congress, and an overall feeling that the entire nation has "completely lost it," President Barack Obama openly asked a campaign-rally crowd Tuesday why he'd want to serve another term as president of "this godforsaken country."


wow.. godforsaken country?

and who exactly lost it Mr Obama?
certainly not you...?


"My fellow Americans, I come to you today to ask, why?" Obama said to 1,200 people gathered inside a gymnasium at Taylor Allderdice High School. "Why can't our congressional leaders work together to create jobs? Why can't Wall Street ever be held accountable? And most important, why on God's green earth would I voluntarily subject myself to this nonsense for another four years?"


oh gosh Obama, i don't know?

maybe because the system you're living in and are creating btw, is just as rotten as you are Mr. Obama.


Arguing he'd have to be certifiably insane or some kind of sadistic freak to extend his presidency, Obama asked why anyone with half a brain would willingly open himself up to constant vilification by media strategists, or place himself in a situation that involves so much work for such little reward. He also asked the audience how "messed up and sick" he'd have to be to devote nearly a decade of his life to an unending cycle of political gamesmanship that stifles progress at every turn.


ahh you poor soul

Oh dear... the Onion..... it's a satirical newspaper not based in reality at all. It's for humor purposes only.

2nd line.

Lol he even highlighted the "most offensive" parts. Doesn't the guy do enough in real life to bash him for? Now we gotta start making stuff up?

"Whenever I watch him on the stump asking a crowd, 'Why am I #ing here right now?' or saying things like, 'I think I'd rather die than do this job again,' he's so fiery and passionate I'm reminded of the 2007 Obama,"


Favorite part. I can just imagine obama sitting backwards in a chair in front of a press crowd, head in his hands, and muttering "why am i f-ing here right now?"

While it may be a satirical attempt, it still makes a valid point, since most of it is true except that he actually said that.

The point being, why would people put up with all that crap?
And the answer i think is obvious: The Power, The Fame, The Status, etc.

Clearly, that just goes to show what kind of people are usually calling the shots.

I would join in the other commentators and ask if you realize The Onion is satirical, but based on how you titled the link, I bet you do. If I'm right, shame on you for posting it as news. We have enough poo poo to wade through without deliberate attempts to deceive.

Edit to add: Just saw your facepalm post. Be a good ATS citizen then, and ask for the mods to remove it.
Ah, better yet - into the jokes forum. Thank you mods

I personally don't believe that President Obama said those words...I think they were fabricated...by someone who is extremely sarcastic. I'm just saying.

Yes, yes, it's The Onion. I am aware.


But I have to admit, that was one of the funniest and most relatable articles I've read in a long, long time.



After a long silence during which crowd members mostly just shuffled their feet and stared at the ground, Obama said, "Yeah, that's what I thought."


Brilliant.
