Oh no, not again. Obama says there’s this car … but this time …

He’s thrown another change up. This is kinda of like watching one of my alt country singers perform. The greatness of a live performance is the performer never performs the same song the same way twice. Yes, the theme is the same … but the ending is always different. In other words … this is what change looks like.

For instance, over the weekend in Reno the President likened the Republicans to law breakers. But then in Minnesota and again last night in Rhode Island … the President dropped the law breaking stuff and moved on to putting the Republicans … “in the back seat”. Huh? Did he just say we just regular old folk have to sit in the back seat? No. Really?

From The Blaze:

I like the way he says the middle class can sit in the front seat. No thanks, not if he’s driving, thank you.

Trust me. These will be collectors items some day.

    Gotta ride in the back, I find that offensive.

    Keeping an automotive motif….


    This sounds weak coming from the bus driver who throws his friends under the bus (when they become inconvenient) while taking the country on an economic bus plunge.


    And we haven't hit bottom yet….

    Man this analogy is worn out. BUT….

    I'll agree that the car was driven into the ditch, but I wish he would admit that his party wrestling the steering wheel away from the driver is what caused the wreck.

    And to further abuse an old friend….

      When Obama and the Dems drive the car off the cliff and into the dark depths of the bottomless lake never to be recoverable, I hope I can roll down the back seat window to swim the hell out.

    I think I’m starting to understand this whole car in a ditch analogy. The car that the Republicans drove into the ditch represents our economy, and the Democrats just leave it there so they can convince the public that AAA should be mandatory for anyone that drives a car. It’s like universal affordable roadside assistance, and since the Republicans were the ones that drove the car into the ditch, they will have to take all of the blame for the added expense to our insurance premiums. If the Republicans at least called a tow truck, or helped in some way to indicate that they were trying to resolve the problem that they created, then the Democrats wouldn’t assume that the Republicans are exercising a little payback for the way the Clinton administration’s scorched earth strategy left the country for the Bush administration to clean up. I’m just guessing.

    Now your going to have to give me a minute to process this. I'm a mechanic so I feel like I should have some insight on the subject… But uhh… Didn't the car atleast still run when the Republicans ran into that ditch? I mean, the thing doesn't even turn over now and all Obama can seem to do is put more gas in the tank and watch it over flow all over the ground. Perhaps had they helped the Republicans push it out of the ditch as opposed to just reving the engine full bore, spinning their wheels, making the ditch deeper and deeper until the engine blew, we could all be singing songs and holding hands on our way to Wally World as opposed to pointing fingers at each other like a couple of kids in the back seat.

    This analogy has become as lame as the administration. They can not accept any responsibility for the BIGGER mess they have gotten us into. Smart ass remarks is just about all this loser has left and he will be sitting alone in the oval office soon, saying Steve McQueens last line in the movie , "The Sand Pebbles"…"What the hell happened".

    I love these alternative analogies as I have one myself:

    It's more like a bus (economy) full of us taxpayers has found itself stuck in a ditch along the road.  Now, Pres. Obama, the driver, is complaining that the Republicans who built the bus did not equip it with 4-wheel drive.  So, instead of calling a tow truck, he and congress call a general contractor to beautify the roadside with granite curbing and flowers (ARRA) while the taxpaying passengers stand watching along the roadside but, they are also asked to open their wallets to pay the beautification project with their credit cards ($3 Trillion+ Deficit spending).  Meanwhile, President Bush and Allen Greenspan have pulled up 6 times with a tow truck and Officers Barnie Frank and Chris Dodd have sent them on their way saying that Fannie May/Freddie Mac Bus Lines is not stuck in the ditch but moving along nicely.  So, in the end, the bus cannot get out of the ditch so the President and this Democrat congress pour gasoline on the bus and set it ablaze, leaving the passengers stranded and losing their jobs.
