Barack Obama - Knight-errant

President Barack Obama, the Knight-errant of bipartisanship, riding his faithful steed, Austerity, in his frustrated quest to forge the Grand Bargain while armored in Wall Street gold. Along his path, the Don Quixote of good government is heckled by traditional Republicans and hissed at by Tea Party Republicans. They see the Other they want to see, not the conservative steward yearning for their praise. He navigates through a field of “all of the above” energy policy. Carefully he commands the cyber, drone and human forces as he travels. He displays the ACA scabbard that guarantees customers for the insurance, drug and medical industries while making some improvements for those customers as well. The feather in his helmet is a slight flutter in the minimum wage. Will he choose to put down his broken staff and pick up the sword of progress? He might not change the country, but at least he could change the conversation.

 

Barack Hussein Obama II, aka Barack Obama, is the 44th president of the United States of America.
