Obama denies role in government

By Andy Borowitz.

WASHINGTON—President Obama used his weekly radio address on Saturday to reassure the American people that he has “played no role whatsoever” in the U.S. government over the past four years.

“Right now, many of you are angry at the government, and no one is angrier than I am,” he said. “Quite frankly, I am glad that I have had no involvement in such an organization.”

The President’s outrage only increased, he said, when he “recently became aware of a part of that government called the Department of Justice.”

“The more I learn about the activities of these individuals, the more certain I am that I would not want to be associated with them,” he said. “They sound like bad news.”

Mr. Obama closed his address by indicating that beginning next week he would enforce what he called a “zero tolerance policy on governing.”

“If I find that any members of my Administration have had any intimate knowledge of, or involvement in, the workings of the United States government, they will be dealt with accordingly,” he said.

  2. Of course he an still play the outsider in DC, this is the first he has been made aware of what is going on…because the text didn’t appear on his teleprompter before it became an issue. I want to know what role Val has played in all these issues.

  3. He’s not from this planet! We were thinking he was from Kenya (because both he and M. stated that where he was from), but I think he must be from a different universe or dimension, because he sure off the radar screen of sanity and normal thinking. We know he’s ‘remaking America’ in his boss’ image. He does need to ‘see,see.’ Wowzers!
