Barack Obama was in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted John Boehner below. He descended a bit more and shouted, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised Michelle I would meet her an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”
John Boehner replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You’re between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude.”
“You must be a Conservative,” said Barack Obama.
“I am,” replied John Boehner, “How did you know?”
“Well,” answered Barack Obama, “everything you told me is, technically correct, but I’ve no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help at all. If anything, you’ve delayed my trip.”
John Boehner responded, “You must be a Marxist.”
“I am,” replied Barack Obama, “but how did you know?”
“Well,” said John Boehner, “you don’t know where you are or where you’re going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise which you’ve no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it’s my fault.
