WASHINGTON – House Republicans will pass a resolution designating President Barack Obama’s ego as an “honorary Republican,” when they return to work after the holiday. The legislation is meant to be a hat tip to the president, on his way out of office, for being so completely tone-deaf because of his massive ego. So massive, in fact, that he did more to grow the Republican Party than the GOP could have ever done by themselves.
“It’s the least we can do,” said Rep. Jim Jordan. “The guy has screwed up so immensely for 8 straight years, but he can’t even see the damage he did to his own party….all because of arrogance and one of the world’s biggest egos. We owe him, big time.”
Nobody else could have elevated his enemy, while decimating his own team at the same time, simply because he was too prideful to see his own incompetence. But President Obama is a special kind of stupid.
House Republicans are worried that Obama will be unable to understand and accept how irrelevant he’ll be to the country in a few months. He will no doubt continue popping off about different issues once he leaves office, as if he believes his wisdom is actually wanted.
Obama will enjoy all the trappings afforded to former presidents in retirement, while his Democrats are left scattered and broken. Consider them political collateral. But it’s not his fault. He’ll be the first to tell you that.
