Obama: A Man Of Taste And Intelligence …

Photo: Not Obama!

“For so long, we have placed at the top of our pinnacle, folks who can manipulate numbers and engage in complex financial calculations … and that’s good, we need some of that … but you know what we can really use is some more scientists and some more engineers – people who are building and making things we can export to other countries.”Barack Obama: April 2009

I don’t know if any of you remember [or care] but a while back we working on a project to help encourage students to become engineers … well because of this, our dear George has been invited to the White House [admittedly with a few others] to discuss how engineering and science can be made more attractive for the next generation.

Not only is this exciting and brilliant [especially for George’s kids who are apparently telling everyone their Dad is going for a picnic with the President] … but Andy wasn’t invited … which means he’s going around like a bear with a sore head muttering words like “fools” and “outrage” under his jealous breath.

I know the current President of the Untidy States of America still has got to prove he’s more than just a bunch of well chosen words … but let’s face it, the things he’s saying and the decisions he’s making are far more sensible than the last Pres managed in almost 10 years so maybe it is OK to think America – and the World – will be a better place for everyone in the future.

fucking travesty of justice. not for me but america because theyre getting the puppet not the fucking man who pulls the strings.

fuck you campbell. fuck america, obama and mr fucking parasite.

and george got asked because of his dealings with somone else not because of his personal fucking brilliance so he has a habit of feeding off others hard work.

it should of been me but maybe its better this way because michelle would only want to jump my fucking bones and thered be all sorts of shit when I turned mrs muscles down.

How will they get him to say what they want to hear?

In addition to the mistake that Andrew feels has taken place I must add that my beautiful daughters are not saying their daddy is going for a picnic with the President but a party.

We all know life is full of unfairness Andrew but my girls are very excited to see you this weekend and that is worth far more than a few minutes in the Presidents house isn’t it. This is where you nod in agreement.

Comment by Mary Bryant

good fucking point dodds. im no patsy in the political game so no fucking wonder they didnt ask me. im angry just because i don’t want dear george to be used.

and mary. better looking, better company, better conversation, better crayola drawings. who the fuck wouldnt see dinner with your family being better than 3.2 seconds with the prez. except your pontious pilot husband.

Andy: Don’t worry , just because you’ve been invited to the White House doesn’t mean you’re going to meet the President. He’ll find himself talking to some aid and that’s only if the other 100 invitees don’t take up all their time.

George: You’re going to meet the president.

Comment by Pete

If it sounded like I found it quite funny that you’d not been invited to the White House, I apologise – obviously I found it very disturbing because we all know you are the brains behind everything … including starting film companies that lose all our money within 8 months!

On the positive side, unlike George who won’t know if he is meeting El Presidente [and even if he does, it’s with a bunch of others] you are having a 1-2-1 with the real power … Mary!

andy, i am sorry, but… congratulations to george! it s so very cute that the kids are excited their daddy is having a party with the president 🙂

i do hope the ladies and gents at the white house are interested in an open conversation and will make something of it.

as for a better future and all that. i think after bush only dr. strangelove would have been worse. so with obama, i hope it will be better. i m just wondering why he wants to export things to other countries. almost reads like he wants to make the u.s. the new china. it s competition time i say : )

and i like the title of this post rob ; )

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Comment by peggy

@John They just have to remind him the future of his green card is in their hands.

What are you going to steal Georgie? You know you want to.

Comment by Billy Whizz

Name dropping reaches new heights. Fame by association. Brilliant.

Comment by fredrik sarnblad

That’s all we have to offer Freddie …

… and you can talk, I’ve heard you walk into meetings and say:

“Hello, my name is Fredrik Sarnblad. I come from the same country as IKEA, Volvo, Abba and Roxette”

Or maybe I dreamt that! 🙂

Comment by Rob

Comment by niko

Go on George … ask.

Are you a man or a mouse?

Sorry mate, can you speak louder, all I can hear are these bloody squeaks!

Comment by Rob

So George trumps me again.
Congratulations gentlemen.

how to make an engineer sexy? introduce them to an artist/architect 🙂

[… and you think i’m joking.]

Comment by lauren

Can you really blame them for not inviting Andy? I really think the disaster potential would have outweighed the comedy potential…

Comment by Rob Mortimer

I don’t blame them for not inviting Andy because George was the main contact … but as I’ve said before, the Andy people know on this blog is not the Andy people know in the office.

He’s much nicer here, ha!

Nah … whilst he’s not some bloody snuggly teddy bear, he can be more charming than Hugh Jackman and George Clooney put together. But only when he wants something. Like a wife. 🙂

Comment by Rob

Haha, we know that really. But the myth of vicious deadly nightshade Andy is more interesting than the Geoffery Hayes reality.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Its true Andy is much nicer and calmer than he appears on this blog but I’ve still met Republicans who are more empathetic and reserved.

Comment by Bazza
