Presidential Seal Falls Of Podium During Obama Speech!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"We cannot sustain -- oops -- was that my? Oh, goodness. That`s all right. All of you know who I am. But I`m sure there`s somebody back there that`s really nervous right now. Don`t you think? They`re sweating bullets back there right now."


President Obama after the presidential seal fell from the podium during a speech at the Fortune`s Most Powerful Women Summit.

After almost two years in office Barack Obama seems to have lost his mojo. The BP oil disaster, the unemployment crisis, and the interminable wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan have taken a toll on the President`s approval ratings.

Most Democrats running in the mid-term elections avoid mentioning Obama in their stump speeches, and even the president`s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, has jumped ship.

Bo, the White House dog, energetically drags the President around the grounds of the White House. It seems like the Portuguese water dog wants to run far away from his master.

I`ve heard rumors that Obama`s daughters want to go to court to declare emancipation from their father. (just joking)

Even the Presidential Seal wants no part of the President, I`m sure Obama is thinking "What`s gonna happen next?"

I will give Obama credit for thinking on his feet, and making a joke out of the embarrassing situation.

But if Obama`s teleprompter had come crashing to the floor, he would have been tongue-tied.

Obama should interpret this mishap as a divine warning to get his house in order. Obama should keep his promises to the homosexual community, and to the peace activists, or even his liberal base will desert him.
