18. I am proud of my corporatist President and the progress he has made...
...furthering the destruction of America's poor and middle class. No one has been a better ally of global industry, or worked harder to pillage what's left of our nation.

For me, as a guy without healthcare, a personal favorite was when Obama solved the problem by sticking a gun in my face and ordering me to buy insurance I cannot afford... or else! Prior to this 'offer I could not refuse' I had assumed that the reason I was too poor for healthcare was because I lacked money. Now I know better... the LAW doesn't force me to eat, or have a house, or even drive a car, in America those things are secondary so skip those meals fatty and buy insurance!

I am also thrilled at the way we ended the war in Iraq by simply saying that the war was over. It's the best of both worlds -- all the great benefits of war, all the spending and slaughter, money and body parts flying everywhere in an WARGASM of explodiness-- and none of the negative PR. Hopefully Obama will do the same with the war on poverty: just declare it to be finished, we won (go us!), and from this point forward the poor will now be referred to as, say, "middle class." Although now that I think about it perhaps they already did this.

Also, I am thrilled that we continue our torture programs, and have now expanded them to include Americans. Even better, forget that candy-ass Bush and his imprisonment without trial... Obama has gone the extra mile! Americans can now be executed without a trial so long as they are labeled properly. Also great is how GITMO was closed. This again is a demonstration of Obama's political prowess. GITMO is now closed to outside scrutiny. Case closed.

But perhaps my favorite Obama victory was when he surrendered control over the gulf to BP -- ordering the federal police and coast guard to arrest any of those pesky journalists who tried to find out what was going on. Good show big O!

Big O, not big oil. There's a difference. Okay, not really.
