When your approval ratings are low, just point to the guy that people seem to hate even more than you. But yet, don’t extend your index finger; keep all your fingers bent tightly inward, and jab quickly in the direction of said person’s face. If you make contact, that’s great; there will be no misunderstanding as to who you’re referring to.
People fall for this kind of thing all the time, especially the other guy. So it’s a great method of deflection as demonstrated by our Commander in Chief, President Barack The Rock Obama, in this Onion News segment as he met with innocent, doe-eyed investment banker Ron Milner.
After punching Milner in the face, Obama’s ratings soared from a meager 41% to a monstrous 93%. Like we said, just “point” at the guy that people seem to hate more than you. Point, punch, punch, point, whatever. It’s all the same just with a one less finger and little more chootspah (thank you, Mrs. Bachmann).
Obama later released a statement about the unprovoked, cheap-shot:
Sometimes you see someone and you just know that you wouldn’t be able to forgive yourself if you didn’t knock his teeth halfway down his throat. I don’t feel compelled to apologize.
Now if we could only channel that chootspah. Hmm…
