You Need a New Analogy, Mr. President! by The Elephant's Child

President Obama loves his analogy of the previous administration “driving the car into the ditch.”  He repeats it ad nauseum at every opportunity.  But since January 20, 2009, it has been his car to drive.  Lately he has embellished the analogy by indicating that “the Republicans have to sit in the back.” Nice.

So let’s take it a little further.  Obama is the licensed driver, and the Republicans are in the back seat.  But Obama is driving recklessly, taking left turns against the yellow light, going too fast.  Those of us in the back seat are nervous, asking him to slow down, to be more careful, but he goes careening on.

Now we are frightened, he’s weaving all over the road, we beg him again to slow down, consider what he is doing.  We cite statistics of the dangers to our health from his reckless driving, warn of difficult curves in the road ahead, all to no avail.  There’s wet pavement ahead, glistening with an oil slick — he may lose control.   But he will not listen.

He knows better what speeds the car is capable of.  Never mind the speed limit signs, the yellow lights flashing, and now there’s a siren.  Finally, he’ll have to stop.  He is endangering us all.  The people are waving their arms trying desperately to catch his attention, screaming.  Patrol cars are right on our tail.  We cling together, bracing ourselves for the crash.  If we survive this — he will surely have to pay, and pay, and pay.

You chronically obese Republicans were watching
President Obama and Patty struggle with
pushing the car out of the ditch while
sipping on a slurpee and making snide comments.

Notice how the gear selector when you put it in
D it’s going forward and R is for going
backwards “Right back into the ditch”
