Obama, debt limit, social security and priorities. A Limerick.

Obama said in mid July 2011 “I’ll be turning fifty in one week”. According to his “Birth Certificate” his official birthday was not until Aug 4. Maybe he was born a few weeks earlier in Kenya? Be that as it may, if he doesn’t get an increase in the debt ceiling he does not know if the Social Security checks can be paid. This is my interpretive Limerick of what he really meant:

“I don’t really care if the seniors get paid.

 We used up the trust fund in our last raid.

 There is just enough cash

For my own birthday bash.

Nothing else matters, so be not dismayed.”
