In light of the recent news that the GOP wants to sue the president, I wrote this little scene to explain how government has worked for the last six years which has brought us to where we are.
For tonight’s performance, the role of Mom will be played by John Boehner.
Let’s pretend you can only get ice cream through the House of Representatives.
And here we go:
Barack Obama: “Man, I would really like some ice cream.”
House: “Well, you can’t have any.”
Obama: “OK, well I guess no ice cream for me.”
House: “Hey, everybody!!! This guy doesnt like ice cream. He’t not one of us! And i don’t think he wants us to have ice cream. HE WANTS TO TAKE OUR ICE CREAM!!”
Obama: “Woah, settle down. It’s fine. If you don’t want to give me any ice cream, I’ll find a different way to get ice cream. The same way every president has before me.”
House: “Hey you can’t do that! We said no. MOMMMM, Barack is getting ice cream when we told him he couldn’t. Can we sue him?”
Mom: Sure, dear. Whatever you want.”
