8:33 A.M. Saturday June 19th 2010 White House Communications Room

The President felt much better after yesterday’s late afternoon mishap that ended him on the Presidential throne for 30 minutes, while the members of his staff disbursed like little kids let out of school early. He had good reason for feeling good today. His White Sox won last night against the Nationals and he got to spend 3 hours with his adorable daughters at the game. For 3 hours things seemed normal. Unfortunately, the game went into extra innings and the first family had to leave, but all in all his crazy Friday ended on a happy note. God, I wish I could just quit this job and be a real father again, he thought. He could see that his schedule was distancing himself from the two most important people in his world.
As he laid his Saturday Morning Address to the Nation script down, he was getting that feeling Presidents get in their 3rd and 4th year in office. Yes, that lame duck feeling was creeping into his psyche. After this week’s defeat of another massive spending bill he was getting the message that the people had gotten the message. They weren’t buying this shit anymore and it was pretty obvious. Even members of his party are desperately attempting to save what’s left of their political future by voting against his big government agenda.
The more he blasted the other side, the more he knew it was his own party that was now reining him in. For The Plan to work he needed at least another year. This won’t go down well with “them”, he thought and with yesterdays changes they’re getting more aggressive. Maybe that’s why. Of course, what was I thinking? He knew that with the new changes millions would die and he hoped that could be avoided. Historically, rulers seemed to be remembered more for how many people they killed than the good they did. Killing 50 million Americans was not part of the original plan and he didn’t want to be remembered for something like that. He always believed when studying Mao and Stalin, the more you killed, the less you had to manipulate. It illustrated the failure in a plan rather than its success. His idealistic ways led him to believe that you’ve failed if one person dies, but he kept remembering the dead workers on the Deepwater Horizon and thinking, 11 too many, 11 too many.
The President's weekend schedule was blank to the world but a lot was going on behind the scene. With the late Friday release from Holder’s office of his lawsuit against the state of Arizona, it was pretty obvious that his administration was just going through the motions for their Latino constituents and they knew it. God he thought, this amalgamation of disenfranchised groups we call the democrat party is starting to feed on itself and could lead to the very end of its existence. He had to find a way to get the nation refocused against the other side. We’ve got to do something big and soon or this ship could sink before it reaches port.
“Rahm” he shouted into the phone, “I need you here in the Oval Office, now.” Rahm Emanuel his Chief of Staff who was still feeling the sting of the Israeli people from his trip to a Bar Mitzvah two weeks ago commented “but I thought we were off this weekend?” “Now, Rahm, thanks.” “Yes sir, right away.”
As the President waited for Rahm, he kept thinking about what the good Reverend Wright said about the American black man still serving his master on the liberal Jewish-American plantation as day 505 of the Obama Presidency proceeded with caution.
