President Barack Obama has gotten so desperate to recover his ‘Kool Mo D’ image that he’s granting exclusive interviews with ESPN, so his hecklers stop mocking him as Steve Urkel, a TV comedy character from the ABC family sitcom, Family Matters, when he hits the campaign trail.
Obama even lost support from former GE CEO, Jack Welch, who said, “President Obama is the Steve Urkel of presidents, the bumbling sitcom character who, when his ill-conceived plans and blundering actions caused disaster, would look around plaintively and asked, ‘Did I do that?’ At least Urkel knew he had nobody to blame but himself.”
Mr. Welch added, “we now have the Obama Principle. It’s like the Peter Principle, in which people rise to the level of their incompetence, except as redefined by this administration you refuse to recognize your incompetence and constantly blame others when things go wrong.”
