Barack Obama

Call of Duty

... As in Jury Duty

1/25/2010 8:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Barack ObamaWhatever your excuse is for getting out of jury duty, it's not "I have to give the State of the Union this week."

President Barack Obama was called to serve by his home state of Illinois. He told the court he won't be able to make it, cause he's got this thing on Wednesday night and he can't reschedule.

We think they'll understand.

HE DON'T HAVE NO RIGHT TO GET OUT OF DOING JURY DUTY. THE GOVERNMENT MAKES SURE THAT ALL TAXPAYERS DO JURY DUTY. HE IS A TAXPAYER I THINK. IF HE PAYS TAXES HE SHOULD DO JURY DUTY. JUST BECAUSE HE IS A SO CALLED PRESIDENT DOESN'T MAKE HIM SPECIAL IN ANYWAY. WHATS GOOD FOR THE TAXPAYERS SHOULD BE APPLIED TO THE PRESIDENT, ALL SENATORS, AND ALL CONGRESSMAN AND CONGRESSWOMEN AND GOVERNORS OF ALL STATES. THEY ALL THINK THEY ARE ALL THAT WELL THEIR NOT. SO IF WE THE TAXPAYERS HAVE TO DO IT THAN SO SHOULD THEY. IF HE CAN'T GO TO JURY DUTY THEN THEY NEED TO DO TO HIM WHAT THE LAW WOULD DO TO US TAXPAYERS IF WE DON'T GO AND PULL JURY DUTY. SO BE IT IS WHAT I SAY. NONE OF THESE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS ARE NO BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE. THEY USE THE BATHROOM JUST LIKE WE DO UNLESS THEY ARE FROM ANOTHER PLANET AND SOUNDS LIKE SOME OF THEM COULD BE.

I selpt with John Edwards, too!!!!!    

LOL!!! I'm all ears (or eyes) athensguy!!! Please, enlighten us with all his accomplishments!!! I will give you this, however. To Obama, and probably the same with you, you do consider his first disastrous year full of "accomplishments." Destroying the economy, federalizing the auto, bank and student loan industries. Quadrupling the debit, attempting to ram Nazi healthcare down our throats, so yes, I can see how in your mind you would find all these travesties as "accomplishments." But somehow I bet he won't be bringing these up to the American people Wednesday night as "accomplishments."

who has the facts? ME    

Don't the paranoid conservatives ALWAYS point out that one of Bush's biggest accomplishments was "keeping America safe for 8 years?" (well, if you don't count the warning he got in August,2001 about 9/11...)
So I think that Obama has kept us safe. Remember "the test" he was suppose to have? Where is it? If it was a big accomplisment for Bush to keep us safe, AFTER 9/11 of course, then it must be a big accomplishment for Obama too - otherwise, dear consrvatives, you would be hypocrites, right??

Oh, and I love the way you say that we can't blame Bush for ANY of Obama's current situation, and THEN you all go on to blame it all on Clinton...PRICELESS HYPOCRITES - you betcha!! Republicans had it ALL between 2000-2006 and the only thing they got done was sending us to an unending, trillion dollar, no reason war in Iraq.
