Oscar: Uncle Steve says we gots a limp duck congress.
MacIntosh: I think you mean lame duck.
Oscar: Whats a lame duck?
MacIntosh: It’s a bird that can’t fly….a congress without any mojo.
Oscar: I thinks this ones limp….like hardly breathing type of limp.
MacIntosh: Actually the House is showing a little spine.
Oscar: Ifs you gots spine are you limp or lame.
MacIntosh: Lame…the Democrats have decided they don’t want Obama’s tax sellout deal to come to a vote.
Oscar: Whats will that do?
MacIntosh: They can renegotiate the deal.
Oscar: Like a reset button.
MacIntosh: Exactly…only this time we can pick a better negotiator.
Oscar: Which negotiator did Obama use?
MacIntosh: It was either Biden or a hooker they picked up on 41st Street.
Oscar: Would it make a difference?
MacIntosh: The hooker would have cut a better deal.
Oscar: Is Obama a lame duck?
MacIntosh: Not exactly.
Oscar: Is Obama a limp duck?
MacIntosh: You’re getting closer.
Oscar: Is Obama a limp….
MacIntosh: I think you are searching for the word ‘dick’
Oscar: That’s not very nice MacIntosh. Obama has done some great things too.
MacIntosh: You’re right. But this a major miss. It adds gazillions to the deficit and people are outraged that the rich are not paying their share. He negotiated with the Republicans but not the members of his own party.
Oscar: He didn’t listen to what his own peoples wanted?
MacIntosh: Nope. The Bush tax cut for the rich, even the inheritance tax will continue. He didn’t get any help for the people that have been unemployed long term. We will be throwing people in need on the streets so Paris Hilton can buy a new Bentley… and adding to the deficit when we don’t need to.
Oscar: That’s lame MacIntosh.
MacIntosh: No…that’s limp.
