President Barack Obama encouraged further divisiveness among the nations two political parties today by refusing to treat all members at a gathering with equanimity. Attending the Iowa state fair he demonstrated his disdain for the erstwhile civilian supporters of the Republican party by refusing to buy them a single beer while he was lavishly treating his own supporters to servings of the healthy suds.
How long can this great nation continue in this vein. Must the party pep clubs always rally to one side of the field and decry the valiant efforts of the others as base and trivial. Why can’t we all just get along. Think of the healthful benefits of cooperation. Ponder the nutritional pluses of spiritus fermenti. When drunk don’t we all say “I love you man.” and reiterate “I really love you man.”. Isn’t everyone more attractive after a few beers. Aren’t we all more loving as the bars close down. Raise a glass to your competition, they are fighting the good fight. Toast the players of the game, where is the sportsmanship, the respect for a game well played.
It is high time the leaders of this nation renewed their commitment to the people they serve, and stop the petty squabbling amongst themselves. Mr. Obama, buy that man a beer, or if it’s Mitt a Coca Cola.
