The Morning Conversations of Barack & Michelle Obama #10

Updated on October 24, 2011

April 6, 2011 - Government Shutdown


A fictional account of the private morning conversations of Barack & Michelle Obama by Dexter Yarbrough. Tenth in a series.

Michelle: Barack, you are going to have to stop letting this crap bother you!

Barack: Michelle, I know but it's a lot to deal with. Possible government shutdown, criticism over Libya and now I hear a lot of my black support is upset because I announced my re-election bid Monday - on the anniversary of Dr. King's assassination.

Michelle: Are we any closer to a deal with the Republicans?

Barack: I met with John Boehner and Harry Reid. The conversations are cordial but John is not budging.

Michelle: You have 72 hours to make it happen.

Barack: Yep. Well this happened in the mid-nineties and it back-fired on the Republicans.

Michelle: Keep exuding confidence. Like you do on the dance floor! Even though you look ridiculous!

Barack: There you go with my dancing again. I am a very good dancer.

Michelle: You are very good at thinking you can dance!

Barack: Michelle, I have enough on my...

Michelle: Don't lose your sense of humor, Barack. It's what I really love about you.

Barack: OK.

Michelle: Now check out this funny video before you run off to save the world!

Barack: Oh, no! Is this something that will get me in trouble?

Michelle: Just watch the damn video! It's funny!

Barack: OK!

Michelle: Ha ha ha!!!

Barack: Ha ha ha!!!!

Michelle: Ta-Kwee-Lah!!!!

Barack: Now I'm really going to be in trouble with the black community! Off to solve the budget mess.

Michelle: Yes! And when John Boehner starts crying or Harry Reid gets mad, just remember Ta-Kwee-Lah!!!

      The very best line in this one: "Now, when John Boehner starts crying or Harry Reid gets mad...."

      If we see Boehner getting mad and Reid crying, that'll be change we can live with! LOL!
