THE SAME JOKER, BUT DIFFERENT PARTY
As election is coming near, My thoughts wander if President Obama can be reelected. I believe he will be since I will be voting for him again. This win will not be a landslide. I have a few members of my immediately family who will not vote this coming election, because neither Obama or Romney tickles their fancy. The following article printed 4 years ago, is a joke that will last for a decade. Do you agree?

Black Man Given Nation's Worst Job
WASHINGTON—African-American man Barack Obama, 47, was given the least-desirable job in the entire country Tuesday when he was elected president of the United States of America. In his new high-stress, low-reward position, Obama will be charged with such tasks as completely overhauling the nation's broken-down economy, repairing the crumbling infrastructure, and generally having to please more than 300 million Americans and cater to their every whim on a daily basis.
As part of his duties, the black man will have to spend four to eight years cleaning up the messes other people left behind. The job comes with such intense scrutiny and so certain a guarantee of failure that only one other person even bothered applying for it. Said scholar and activist Mark L. Denton, "It just goes to show you that, in this country, a black man still can't catch a break."
Here's the latest projection of the coming November election.
Recent polls clearly indicate that the White House race between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney will be very tight.
In fact, this coming presidential election may be the nail-biter of the century!
Major polls now show the two candidates running neck and neck, with a significant percentage of voters still undecided.
