Groundhog Day and the State of the Union. A Limerick.

state-of-the-union_gi_topOnce upon a time Air America Radio pointed out:

Obamascrawny“It is an ironic juxtaposition of events: one involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to a creature of little intelligence for prognostication while the other involves a groundhog.”

This gem was originally aired in 2007  but is much more àpropos today. Air America is now defunct, for obvious reasons, not related to this  quote. This year the state of the union speech will be given Feb 12, but seeing his vacation picture from Hawaii I could not help but make an observation:

Obama is looking a wee bit too scrawny.

Gone are the days when he seemed to be brawny.

He can’t cope with stress

So he works less and less.

Gets scared of his shadow, like Phil Punxsutawney
