Obama Top Ten

I thought this was funny - had to share.

Barack Obama's Top Ten Campaign Promises

By Mike Dorning

BEAUFORT, S.C.--Three words: Vice President Oprah.

That was No. 1 on the Top Ten Campaign Promises list that Barack Obama taped today for the Late Show with David Letterman. Obama taped the segment, to air tonight at 10:35 pm Central/11:35 pm Eastern on most CBS stations, just before speaking at a rally here this evening.

The complete Top Ten List, as read by Obama:

10. To keep the budget balanced, I’ll rent the situation room for sweet sixteens.

9. I will double your tax money at the craps table.

8. Appoint Mitt Romney secretary of lookin’ good.

7. If you bring a gator to the White House, I’ll wrassle it.

6. I’ll put Regis on the nickel.

5. I’ll rename the tenth month of the year “Barack-tober.”

4. I won’t let Apple release the new and improved Ipod the day after you bought the previous model.

3. I’ll find money in the budget to buy Letterman a decent hairpiece.

2. Pronounce the word nuclear, nuclear.

1. Three words: Vice President Oprah.

I especially liked #8 - even funnier hearing them read by Barack. I'm curious to see how many stop reading my blog now that I've gone political. :-P Ah well, I am who I am - take it or leave it. The photo is me & Carter nearly a year ago at a rally in Austin. His vocabulary was pretty limited at the time - mama, dada - his aunt & uncle (also at the rally) worked hard to turn "mamama" into "obama"...


  1. I swear he said it! Sure it had a few extra syllables, "Obamamama" but it was pretty good for only being a little over a year old!

  2. Thanks for the chuckle. I may have to go to you tube and try to pull it up!

  3. Obviously his jokes and flowery speeches are winning votes, but as a christian who stands upon the Godly principles for which this country was founded on, I urge you to take another look at who this man REALLY is , and what he really wants to do with our free nation ! Laurie Serino

  4. I still long as you don't start saying you're gonna vote for Huckabee or Guiliani...ha!

  5. I watched last night, and though I fell asleep before the top ten list, Brad claims this didn't happen.

  6. You're a brave girl to post political. I abhor controversy and nothing brings it on like politics and religion. Worse yet, it seems like there can't be a discussion about one without bringing up the other to add fuel to the fire. Thank goodness for the privacy of the voting booth!

  7. I am Canadian and I am patriotic and respectful of others political views, but I still had to laugh at Letterman!! He is a hoot! Kudos to you for having the - starts with "b" and ends with "alls" to actually post it!! And blessings and good wishes on the impending birth of your baby!! She/he is going to LUV her/his strong-thinking mama!


I always enjoy your comments - thanks so much for taking the time to leave one!
