“Stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop whining!”

Take off your bed slippers and put on your marching shoes.” Now that Obama is all up in their faces and they still can’t cut him a break. How anyone in their right mind would want the job really? Always being nit-picked at, and the media hounds highlighting the wrong portions of a good speech just to make the man look bad. He’s kicking ass out there and they are all still WHINING! I think the Prez needs to start wearing an amulet to ward off the naysayers who will always point out the fact that he picks his nose from the right side and not the left. I don’t know how he takes all the crap; I couldn’t. Surely the man is not paid enough to put up with us, though I also mean the office in general. Ever notice how they go in with good hair and come out with white hair? That’s telling. I think it’s Grecian Formula time for BO.
