12 Jobs That Barack Obama Could Do When His Presidency Ends

Updated on April 13, 2014

The time is drawing near. Soon it will be time to bid farewell to President Barak and First Lady, Michelle Obama.

Actually I am sad to see this fateful day come in November 2016. Obama’s last term will be over and a new man (or woman) will assume the duties of President of the United States.

But with the time I have left, I want to send Obama off, or out of the White House on a positive note. And why shouldn’t I? He has given me so much as an American citizen that I feel as if I owe him this free gift of . . .

“12 Jobs That Barak Obama Could do When His Presidency Ends”

I hope that I can hold back the tears as I list these jobs for our Commander-in-Chief to do when he has nothing but time on his hands.

  1. Talk show host facing today’s issues head-on. Those issues that Jerry Springer wouldn’t touch. Controversies such as: “I was In-Love with My Pet Rhino,” and “I Am Bin Laden’s Love Child.”

  2. Emcee at a high-class strip joint outside of some thriving city as Little Rock, Arkansas. Who knows? He might run into former President Clinton while working there.

  3. Living life on the high-seas as a modern-day pirate in search of gold, silver, and other treasures. Picture, if you will, Obama in a pirate get-up complete with patch over his left eye.

  4. Lead singer in a hit Broadway play that honors all employees nationwide who work as animal control agents.

  5. Lead role in those Wild West shows that vacationers pay to see in states like Arkansas, Texas and Missouri. I can just hear it now. The emcee of the 2 p.m. shows bellowing, “Ladies, gentlemen and children. Welcome to our show honoring the bandits of the early west. We now give you, former President, Barak Obama as “Dead-eye Dick,” in a chilling-production of, “Throw Down That Gold, Jasper!”

  6. Wheat farmer in Kansas. Maybe this would fit him better for there is hardly any spotlight watching is every move.

  7. High school football coach. I think he could motivate any losing team to have a winning season. Look how he “coached” us, the American people in his first term telling us that things were about to get better.

  8. Private eye. Yes, he could assume an alias and investigate cases that the police won’t open. His new private eye name: “Barack Toughback: P.I.” Maybe CBS might start up an upgrade of the once-famous, “Magnum, P.I.” with Barack as the star and Tom Sellek as “Higgins,” for Sellek’s CBS series, Blue Bloods will be history when Obama leaves the White House.

  9. Stand-up comedian. Prove to me that he would not be a success telling jokes and whipping one-liners at celebrities in his audience.

  10. Star in the remake of Morgan Freeman’s, “Lean on Me,” as an African American high school principal in a crime-infested high school. I like this idea.

  11. Engineer on a subway train. Talk about a tough gig. But there again, he will have the protection of the Secret Service for the rest of his life so the “world is his oyster,” and speaking of oysters . . .

  12. Open a seafood restaurant in Baton Rouge. This would work with no problem. “Obama’s Oyster Hut,” and he could hire a top-notch chef and he, Obama could greet customers at the door.

    I feel now that I have fulfilled a quest.

    That of helping our president with 12 job choices to help him, Michelle, and their daughter’s carry-on with their lives.

    What are you going to do to help him?

      Hi, teaches12345,

      Nice to see you again. And he WOULD make a good coach. He knows sports well enough, so his resume is half-written.

      I appreciate your comment so much.

      I have missed you a lot.
