I shamelessly used the blog title to get your attention because I particularly want your input here. I had another blog written and ready for publication but finally decided I needed to hear what you all had to say about the Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday night….
As you all know, Presidents all speak that night and the man we have in the White House now is no exception.
“I have something that rhymes with BUCKET LIST,” Mr. Obama joked that he responded to his staff when they asked if he had a bucket list. “Take executive action on immigration? BUCKET!……..it’s the right thing to do!” (to which he got big laughs from the audience, except from a few I saw with pretty serious looks on their faces, to their credit)
Can you imagine Ronald Reagan saying BUCKET! in that manner, implying the ‘other word’…as PRESIDENT. Let’s face it, BUCKET isn’t profanity, and I’m no prude about language usually, but that obvious ‘rhyme’ FROM A PRESIDENT? Imagine Mr. Bush using BUCKET as if nobody knows what that REALLY MEANS? Some of us say “Freakin…” but we know that ‘freakin’….might as well by ‘f***’in..’, right? Same thing.
We have reached MORE new lows with this president…….. So I wanted to ask you:
1. I don’t think I’m being a prude to expect more dignity from a president, do you?
2. I think I’m being ridiculous to expect more dignity from this president, right?
3. Did you find that classless, too?
“I am determined to make the most of every moment I have left,” (of his presidency), Mr. Obama said Saturday night. MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH more CHILLING than the classless use of “Bucket,” right? If that wasn’t a threat, and he knows that (very well), I don’t know what IS.
Oh, well…I have one thing to say about that to Mr. Obama…..“Bucket”
