Well, Happy New Year!

Last night, while aimlessly flipping through TV channels, I stumbled upon a Fox News Channel commentator bitching about President Obama vacationing with his family in Hawaii for the holidays. Now on Fox they’re always bitching about Obama, but I thought: “The dude can take a holiday vacation with his family.  I’m taking a holiday vacation, even if it’s only one day. You should take one too, Mr. Fox News Channel.”

Then I realized, that was the first time in about two weeks of this holiday season that I had even given a passing thought to President Obama. Or any president or politician, for that matter. Yes, I understand that presidents and politicians make decisions that affect our lives; and I apologize to those who are thinking right now that I’m just a vapid little rock and roll lightweight.

But the truth of the matter is, I don’t think about this stuff too much unless I am getting a regular dose of Fox News Channel, or CNN, or any of the others.  They gotta talk about something to stay on the air for 24 hours and I guess presidents and politicians are good subjects for that. Everybody on TV has an opinion, but I don’t have to listen to all of them.

So I suppose what I am saying is, celebrate the New Year by putting CNN and Fox on mute, forget about the president for a day or two and count your blessings. We’re gonna start a new decade in a day or so, and I’m sure it’s going to be as weird and challenging as the last one.

We’ll be here, taking ‘er easy for you and helping you rock out!

  1. Ummm….it’s not that he’s on vacation with his family. It’s that he’s taken literally a dozen vacations this year, and each time he chooses ridiculous options each step of the way that cost taxpayers a ton extra rather than common-sense alternatives.
    He’s a POS that has tripled the national debt and doubled unemployment via the retarded policies of himself and the democrat-controlled-since-2006 congress.
    Stop trying to be such a hipster when it comes to politics and think logically instead.

  2. Oh, I see … like President Bush, who also took a lot of vacations! Sorry I made fun of Almighty Fox News Channel! Like I said before: lighten up.
