WTF or as Obama Likes to Call it His New Campaign Slogan...

WTF The White House New Campaign Slogan Seriously?!

February 4, 2012

In honor of our smarty-pants President BHO, I’m going to borrow his well thought-out 2012 campaign slogan “WTF” or as he’d like to call it, “Winning The Future,” to describe some random news stories of late.

My first WTF is personal. After we had sewage literally spewing from a basement sink and were told we couldn’t run water or use a toilet in our house, we all hurriedly packed and went to a hotel. During our stay this past weekend, I began to have some cramping. I thought it was something I ate. Then the cramping quickly escalated to labor-pain-like cramping. Soon I discovered a lump near the top of my right thigh and even touching the skin in that area made me jump in extraordinary pain.

My doctor squeezed me into her schedule Monday and told me she suspected a hernia. By the next morning I had stopped eating all solid foods and was in some serious pain as the lump became much larger. Any movement was excruciating.

Wednesday my husband accompanied me to a Doctor who was a hernia specialist. Normally I’m very modest, even in front of female doctors. This time however, I didn’t even wait for the Doctor to close the danged door before I dropped trou. A quick exam revealed I indeed had a hernia and it was pinching a nerve. He said he wanted to do surgery the next day.

I said “Do it!”

Back out in his waiting room, he gave me some comic-book type of reading material he strongly encouraged me to read. He said it would make me a “hernia expert” if I read all the literature. Page after page showed illustrations of hernias and, shall we say, male private parts. Pretty much every single page was filled with medical drawings of male genitalia!


WTF?! (Meaning of course: Winning The Future)

Seriously?! How did I end up with a medical condition that seemed to only plague those of the male persuasion?

The surgery the next day went well and I’m recovering as I type this, but I’m still very perplexed as to why I ended up with this crazy thing that seems to be essentially male-dominated?

The next WTF or “Winning The Future” moment is in regards to Michele Obama. She allegedly spent $50,000 on "Agent Provocateur" bras and panties along with her gal pal the Queen of Qatar.


WTF?!

Seriously Michele? Is your bottom so huge that you need such an expansive amount of material to cover it? Is that the explanation for this obscene alleged shopping spree?

The White House vehemently denies this report, however, it stands to reason why people will believe it anyway. During one $4 mil over-indulgent Hawaiian va-ca this past Christmas, she packed a $2,000 dress and $1,000 skirt.

For the most recent State of the Union address her pretty blue duds cost us all $2,000.


So what’s 50K on some undies?

Winning The Future for us with your wardrobe expenditures Mrs. Obama?


Last but not least for this particular writing adventure is the news blurb in the Wall Street Journal today about a big “crack down” the feds carried out.

The piece caught my eye because they arrested a Michigan man for a number of violations. Turns out, Tom Brady recently said that last year, while nursing a bum foot he was watching the Super Bowl on an illegal website. Fast forward one year later, and lo and behold, he’ll be playing in the Super Bowl rather than just watching it much to his awe and satisfaction.

Well now, this just sent the feds into a flurry of activity! Only God knows how much taxpayer money and resources were used to track down this "horrible" criminal who broadcast illegal pirated content on some eight web sites he owned. Imagine those poor victims of this horrendous crime! Those helpless victims like say...ah...the NFL, or football team owners or--perish the thought--guys like…well…Tom Brady! Can you imagine all that money they’ve lost? Why it's positively unthinkable! How will they pay their bills?!

Wow – it just makes my heart break for these “victims”. And when I think about how highly important it was to crack down on that Michigan hacker Dude so these devastated victims can finally see justice, it just makes me want to pump my fists in the air and holler, “Yay, yay, yay!”


WTF?! Yes, our federal law enforcement dropped everything they were doing to take on this critical case. All of those unimportant things were tossed aside like Black Panthers carrying night sticks outside of voting places acting in a threatening manner, or the human slave trade, or child pornography or even illegal drugs pouring across our borders pale in comparison to making sure this one stinkin’ guy who broadcast stuff he wasn’t supposed to was brought to justice! Yes indeedy our streets are safer tonight thanks to the quick reaction of our feds!

I’m especially glad the feds got involved because a letter from the NFL to this hacker guy threating to sue his pants off if he didn’t cease and desist never would have worked or anything…we needed the feds to wrap this case up didn't we? I just shudder to think what could have happened if this criminal was left to roam cyberspace…

WTF?! Winning The Future! That’s what this administration is all about folks! And boy oh boy am I glad they’re on the job!

I leave you with this --- vote responsibly or you’ll get four more years of this:

Very Familiar Rhetoric, Failed Record--WTF??!?!

CJ - Great to see you writing again. Either you have been taking a break, or I am still not getting notifications from Hub Pages.

This hub really got me laughing. I spend much of my spare time at a local gun range, and often hear someone utter "WTF" in the middle of a pistol match. All this time I thought it meant something different, now I learn the truth. They are talking about the future.

This hub gave me the one and only laugh I have had all day, keep them coming.

Carol,

Rest and recouperate well. Ask the docs if concentrating on the Obamas didn't cause your condition which is also known as "blowin' a gasket".

For the health of Americans, replace Obama!!!!

Poolman - no, it's not your notifications. I haven't written any Hubs since before Thanksgiving.

I'm thrilled I was able to make you laugh AND educate at the same time. It's why they pay me the big bucks around here...

;-)

Thanks for stopping by so soon! You flatter me!

Hey Tom - thanks - I'm doing exactly what the Doc said and it's remarkable - he's had years of experience and since I have followed his instructions to the letter - I am recovering at precisely the rate he predicted. I'm coming along wonderfully, especially today.

So THAT'S how the heck I got this thing! It's all OBAMA'S FAULT!! NO WONDER!!!

LOL

Thanks ole buddy - always good to see you!

You get the award for the best rant of the day! This was great, the sarcasm scathing, the points too true, and the overall sense stellar. I am sick to death of hearing about them going after cyber criminals when really they are just going after anyone that might take a penny from Hollywood, never mind the guys and gals hacking into others bank accounts and ripping them off. They are just tax payers. What do they matter? Hubtastic hub

I guess that when 30 billionaires complain about their superbowl money, the fed springs to action. I don't know who they think that they are losing. If people are watching the game online for free, what makes them think that people would pay money to watch something online?

I hope that you are recovering nicely from your surgery.

I laughed and hmmmmm'd a lot with this one. I always wondered why we need to utter WTF so much, now I know, it's for the future, our future. Nice to know. LOL :)

Why thank you michiganman - I am recovering very nicely in fact thanks be to God. And I agree - I guess when a boat-load of billionaires cry "foul" this administration is going to use ALL their resources to jump through hoops to help these poor victims. I know I can sleep better at night knowing it...

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your thoughts!

Carol - It's been a long dry spell without your wisdom to read. Great Hub and I gave it the 5 Star treatment.

Well Froggy - other than the fact I had MRSA which did NOT respond to antibiotics the first time, a hernia and subsequent surgery and the fact that my daughter was engaged and the wedding will take place March 2012 - I've had a TON of time on my hands! This was my first time back on Hubpages! I'm slowly trying to get back into a routine where I not only write but READ Hubs as well - and I am getting there. Nice to know though that you seem to indicate I was missed!

Thanks for stopping by!
