An Old Hand Comments on the Current Fix We’re In With Obama the “Post Turtle”

Editor’s Note: In light of the huge rally today on Wall Street (predicted to occur before the next collapse), this little story from the campaign (but even more relevant today) is a reminder that we must continue to keep our eye on our wallets…

~~Via our Chicago Correspondent Leslie….

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old Texas rancher, whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his bid to be President.

The old rancher said, ‘Well, ya know, Obama is a ‘post turtle’.

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a ‘post turtle’ was.

The old rancher said, ‘When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a ‘post turtle’.’

The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor’s face, so he continued to explain.

‘You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there,
he doesn’t know what to do while he is up there, and you just wonder
what kind of a dumb ass put him up there.’

  1. How true, how true. Leslie you sure do find us some finger lickin’good tales.

    That turtle sure doesn’t belong up on that pole, and the dumb asses who put him there are the same ones who keep singing his praises while he turns this way and that, trying to stay in place until someone comes along with enough courage and backbone to risk a bite of his beak to put him back down on the ground where he belongs. Better to take a long stick to knock him off so that he doesn’t land on your feet. Then skedaddle out of there before you get contaminated with the salmonella virus.

  2. they used to tell that same joke about dubya. of course Nobama IS bush 3….

  3. This has to be my favorite tale that relates to this presidency.
