No... Obama didn't relapse to the Choom Gang days... but it's funny nonetheless...

Bugged: Obama's Roach Problem

[h=2]As in cockroaches. But vermin is nothing new in a building that is 213 years old--and roaches aren't the worst of it.[/h]
It was just a cockroach, one of millions around the world. But this one had a White House address, making it pretty special...


"It was the size of a small drone,"... "I wanted to bag it so that the GSA would know what kind of issue we had," she said. "I chased it. But it got away behind some wiring."


It is, of course, not the first time bugs or vermin have done battle with the humans who work in the 213-year-old building. Humans have not always prevailed easily – much to the deep frustration sometimes of the president of the United States. None was more frustrated than Jimmy Carter, who battled mice from the start of his administration. To his dismay, he found the bureaucracy unresponsive. GSA, responsible for inside the White House, insisted it had eliminated all "inside" mice and contended any new mice must have come from the outside, meaning, the New York Times reported at the time, they were "the responsibility of the Interior Department." But Interior, wrote the Times, "demurred" because the mice were now inside the White House.


To make matters worse, GSA and Interior refused to use traps, claiming humane groups had protested that in the past. (Zimmer note: ROTFLMFAO) But when mice started scampering across his office in daylight and when his meeting with the Italian prime minister was conducted amid the distinct smell of a dead mouse, Carter erupted.


His fury was captured in his diary entry for Sept. 9, 1977. Carter that day summoned top officials from the White House, the Department of Interior and the GSA to the Oval Office to unload on them about the mice overrunning the executive offices – including the dead ones rotting away inside the walls of the Oval Office and giving his office a very unpleasant odor. "For two or three months now I've been telling them to get rid of the mice," Carter wrote. "They still seem to be growing in numbers, and I am determined either to fire somebody or get the mice cleared out – or both."


...
With that history, this week's cockroach is but a footnote. But several days later it is still unclear if GSA will declare it an "indoor" bug or find a way to blame Interior for letting an "outdoor" bug in.

Gotta love bureaucracy, plus the Lib constituents having the vermin crew nix the use of traps for humane reasons... ROTFLOL.

All we need to do is put Hillary Clinton in charge of the safety of White House Vermin and they will undoubtedly die waiting for help.

It might help to classify their hiding places as CIA Annex Compounds.

This OP begs a response for which I may surely be punished. So I will just let it go.

So now the existence of roaches is obama's fault? God is not as powerful as Obama is in the eyes of right wing loonies. I guess I now understand why in your mind liberals worship the man. if he could do all this crazy stuff I might ask him for some favors also. Seriously, the man can create roaches in your mind so maybe you ought STFU before he smites you. A person with those sorts of powers is not the sort you want to anger.

Where in the world did I state that?
I've got Socialists like you so wound up, even when I don't point to Obama's failures, you hallucinate that I do! ROTFLOL.

Let me repeat the thrust of the thread because... it obviously flewed rights over yer hed.

1. The title of the original piece used Obama's name and the word "roach"... as in a problem with those scurrying bits of insect. A roach is also the butt of a joint. Obama was a chronic (regular dope smoker) by his own admission, and was even leader of a gang of dopers I believe he coined The Choom Gang. Hence the reference in my reply in the OP.

2. I was laughing at the bureaucracy within the White House and it grounds when it came to extermination of vermin. Outside the Interior Dept. and inside the GSA... that is ****ing hilarious!

3. What was also funny is the bureaucracy is so inept at their job o extermination when Carter was in office the place stunk of rotting mice... for quite some time (which included heads of state), AND...

(drum roll...)

4. The exterminators did not use traps to kill the mice because some idiots found it inhumane!

Now that's not just hilarious... that's ****ing hilarious because it shows the ineptness of the bureaucracy...

Now, I'd love to post something biting to illustrate your absolute lack of reading comprehension, or your laziness for not reading and then commenting the garbage you had... but frankly... it's not worth the points.

Wow...

I've seen some pretty desperate partisan attempts to turn a meaningless bit of information into an attack, but this..... this is just awful..... it hurts to read.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh... Wiseone... you related to tererun? The desperate attempts... daiz beez all yerz.

Partisan?
Tell me... these Lib constituents that don't want people to wear fur, and would be against using traps against vermin sound like PETA... don't they? And PETA is largely a what? Lib constituent group.

I don't see too many Righties who would squirm at the thought of using traps on vermin because it's ROTFLOL... "inhumane". Even Carter was outraged!

After some thought, I think I perhaps know the reasons why the PETA-types didn't want traps used. They were fearful of their Lib president being offed in one... ROTFLOL.

Be safe out there.

One of my all time favorite logos. Simply brilliant... and hilarious!

Glad I could make a contribution to help. Sometimes the truth hurts. Other times, people just don't have a sense of humor.

Really, though, at this point, what difference does it make?

Well, sometimes things are funny because the hit so close to home. In this case, it was Hillary's home.

:lamo My cheeks HURT from laughing so hard. I swear.

"It was the size of a small drone," . . .

"did not look like a Walt Disney friend, I'll tell you that."

Reminds me of that scene from Despicable me where he has the Cookie Robots.
