WORST Scandal Ever - unearthed by Andy Borowitz


Obama Under Fire for Using Free Government Housing






WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In the latest scandal to rock the Obama Administration, a leading Republican congressman accused the President today of using his position to obtain free government housing for himself and his family.

According to Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin), Mr. Obama “has arrogantly exploited the office of President to gain access to a fifty-five-thousand-square-foot residence that could double as a museum.”

“While the average American is struggling to pay his bills, President Obama is living in a luxury home, adorned with priceless paintings and antiques as far as the eye can see,” Rep. Ryan alleged.

Additionally, the Wisconsin congressman said, the President has availed himself of “sumptuous free meals—breakfast, lunch, and dinner—all on the taxpayer’s nickel.”

“Day after day, he selfishly sucks on Uncle Sam’s teat,” he said.

In keeping with Mr. Obama’s bloated lifestyle as “Superstar-in-Chief,” the congressman added, “The President travels with an entourage of highly trained bodyguards who would put Jay-Z’s posse to shame.”

Drawing a line in the sand, the Republican warned Mr. Obama to cut back on his lavish living arrangements “or face possible impeachment.” “Across America, people are tightening their belts,” Rep. Ryan said. “The President should not be living like a head of state.”

6. What's sad is that the baggers will believe all those talking points. Just as they believed Colbert

was a conservative, and not a parody of a conservative. Andy has them figured out, all right.

7. Other scandals:

Michelle Bachmann will draw a pension for only eight years of goofing around doing interviews and flashing her crazy eyes.

Meanwhile, the OMB is looking at "borrowing" the USPS' retirement fund to fund something (govt operations?). I heard about this on Ed Schultz's radio show today. Really? I thought that fund was designed to bankrupt the postal service (and bust the largest union) so it could be privatized and all of that money stolen.
