Barack Obama Is...Judge Smails?

From Caddyshack:

Spaulding Smails: "I want a hamburger, no a cheeseburger. I want a hotdog. I want a milkshake. I want potato chips--"
Judge Smails: "You'll get nothing and like it!"

And while John Boehner was only asking for a "fair shake" for the American taxpayer, seems as if President Obama wanted to emulate the president of the Bushwood Country Club, while playing at the course known as the Fiscal Cliff:


Mr. Obama repeatedly lost patience with the speaker as negotiations faltered. In an Oval Office meeting last week, he told Mr. Boehner that if the sides didn’t reach agreement, he would use his inaugural address and his State of the Union speech to tell the country the Republicans were at fault.

At one point, according to notes taken by a participant, Mr. Boehner told the president, “I put $800 billion [in tax revenue] on the table. What do I get for that?”

“You get nothing,” the president said. “I get that for free.”

Smails winds up being the big loser in Caddyshack, losing an $80K bet to Rodney Dangerfield and perhaps losing the entirety of Bushwood (as Dangerfield threatens to tear it down so as to build condos).

Obama could lost the entirety of the United States.

At least Judge Smails seemed to care...
