Caption that Photo -- Obama Tweets This Seat Taken

By GOPUSA Staff

Apparently the "empty chair" routine by Clint Eastwood at the Republican National Convention really struck a nerve with Barack Obama and his team. Shortly after the speech, Obama tweeted a picture of himself in his presidential chair with the line, "This seat's taken." But what's he thinking? Jump in and give us your best caption. Keep it clean and have some fun!

      …hey guys, I’m taking this chair with me on Jan 20,2013. I hope there’s no detailed inventory of all the historical stuff here in the WH cause me and my ChiTown thugs is takin’ everything! Gonna open up Moochelle Pawn Shop. Think I’ll put that painting of Abe above my fireplace and the one of GWB above the commode. I’ll issue an executive order exempting us from prosecution for the burglary.

Mr. Obama is obviously a man who hopes Americans will not care enough about our families, our freedom, or our future. Thank you Governor Romney for your commitment to America!)

      The picture was taken from the back in order to conceal the bib and spill tray.
      It’s unfortunate that so many people were fooled into voting for this national embarrassment. Anyone who can be fooled into voting for him again is a fool and in need of a full time guardian. WOW, he gave the authorization to take out Osama Bin Laden. I bet he lost a significant amount of sleep over having to make that decision. He sure didn’t look presidential in the picture taken of him and his staff watching the Bin Laden raid from the situation room.

      How much of that is to pay for two undeclared wars, Medicare Part D, unnecessary tax cuts and the interest on them … in essence, how much is actually his? Far less than one-half of the amount.

      @Brierebear; The amounts attributable to Bush and PRIOR Presidents is included in the $10 to $11 Trillion that was excluded from the $5 Trillion I mentioned. The current total has recently exceeded $16 Trillion, during the RNC Convention.

      “Far less than one-half the amount” is a lie. Get your facts straight.

      Further, let me ask you how much of the current $16 Trillion debt is attributable to Medicare, Social Security, etc, and other entitlement started by Roosevelt, Johnson, etc.? The $5 Trillion debt incurred by Obama’s administration will be paid over time, not in his four years in office. ( Note that I said four years in office. ) The Republicans have been doing their best to block any further debt since the 2010 Election.

      Clint once said “Man’s got to know his limitations”, and The Republican Congress has been schooling Obama on this matter since January, 2011.
