A little humor to deflect from all of the drama…This is one of four that I wrote with adventures with Obama and Bush.
“Obama And Bush Go Fishing”
Setting: Obama and Bush are at Toledo Bend, and the boat has just stopped in Bush’s favorite area to fish.
Bush: “Ok, Obama. We are here. If you don’t catch a bass here, you just can’t fish.”
Obama: “Don’t worry about me, George. I can hold my own when it comes to fishing.”
Bush is the first to pull in a fish, a nice bass weighing about 2 ½ pounds.
Obama: “Nice catch, George. Well, you got the first one, so I guess it is my turn.”
Bush: “I tried to get a teleprompter mounted on the front of the boat to make you feel more comfortable.”
Obama: Don’t start with me, George. Don’t forget. You told Laura you were going to Washington for a couple of days. I don’t have a problem telling her the truth.”
Bush: “Hey, Obama. Look at this fish. It is a Democrat. Its mouth is wide open, but it is not saying anything.”
Obama: “Look George, I told you we are not going to have one of those days where you just crack jokes at my expense.”
Bush: “Lighten up, Barakova. The fish cannot vote.”
Obama: “I got one. Get the net, George.”
Bush: “Stop calling me George. Just pull the fish in.”
Obama: “Man, this one is bigger than yours.”
Bush: “Are we talking about your fish or your federal budget?”
Obama: “I am not going to talk politics today, Bush. Stop trying to instigate.”
Bush: “Instigate? Is that anything like Watergate?
Obama: Fish, George. I am going to kick your butt at fishing.”
Bush: “Yea, whatever. I caught a fish here last year that was huge. I didn’t get a chance to weigh it, but I took a picture of it and the picture weighed 4 ½ pounds.” (smirky grin)
Obama: “Sounds like a true fish story to me, George.”
Bush: “Next time you call me George, your butt will be in the water.”
Obama: “Do you realize the trouble you could get into by threatening the president?”
Bush: “I was president, too. Who would believe either of us?
Obama: “Got another one, Geo…. Um, I mean Mr. President.”
Bush: “Me too, Obamus. I bet you $1000 my fish is bigger than yours.”
Obama: “Can’t you just fish and stop all of the talking, George?”
