Since President's Day is around the corner, lets take some time to reflect on the many faces of our nation and highlight the good, the bad, and yes, the ugly.
Without delving into a history lesson, or having to cite every fact about each president. Here are a few memorable moments from more recent years that are worth sharing.
Obama Strikes back!
This was a GREAT moment at the 2012 Commencement Dinner when Obama strikes back at Donald Trump's accusations over Obama's true country of Origin. After releasing his "birth video" as proof of his origin, it was clear from the audience response that Obama had indeed trumped Trump. Barak: 1 Trump: Toupe
President Clinton Introduces Nominated film "Lincoln" at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards
This was a feel good moment and I was happy to see a President introduce this movie as it represented a crucial moment in Presidential history. I still haven't seen Lincoln, but I definitely will. It supposedly was very historically accurate, a little long, but worth it to see.
Memorable Speeches from JFK to Clinton
Yeah I had to throw in this gem. How perfect for Presidents Day to have a compilation of important speeches made througout history? I have to say, it plays as a reminder of the strides we have made in history with the influence of these leaders. Ok, im done with the nostalgia over politics! Now for the dirt.
Now that we have seen some proud moments from our Presidents, I feel much better about showing the not-so-proud moments of these candidates:
President Bush's "Victory Salute"
One of the many not-so-proud moments of this middle-aged Texan Candidate. Flipping the bird while the camera is rolling and babbling like a big-mouth bass.
Clinton Tells a Fib
If by saying "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" really means "I did have sexual relations with that woman," you would be telling the truth...either way, Monica Lewinsky got fired from the whitehouse and now she really understands what it's like to "aint got no bills."
Deep Throat Had a Big Mouth Too
Silly Nixon, spying is certainly not your forte
How did he win the popular vote?
Beating around the bush again I see....
This one is self-explainatory...
Bushin this kid's buttons
This little baby has spoken on behalf of every state but Texas
You've got a great Barakside
With this big Noreaster approching, its always key to cover your tracks for a weekend stuck inside. What I do first is Stock the liquer cabinet - that is the key ingredient to my spiked snowcones which always makes for a good time. If your not into that or afraid of finding out that the yellow snowcone you've been eating is not lemon flavored or artificially colored, then maybe these next few things will work better for ya...
Just kidding! A for effort but wow - who has the time to do this? More importantly, why spend day after day effortly carving this masterpiece when it is made out of SNOW!? I mean, what happens when all that work melts? What happens when that gigantic puddle floods every basement within a square mile? Am I the only one stressing that the lights set up around it could very well speed up the thawing process? Pray for LED and on to the real stuff...
1.) Mission Impossible The Sh*t Out Of Your Escape Plan
Hey, it's worth a shot if you've got somewhere to go... or are running from the law. No one likes feeling stuck, but then again, the thought of exerting all of that energy on an escape when I have a freezer full of tequila and margarita mix right at home, seems a tad bit pointless.
2.) Make The Best Of What You Have
Make a Fridge out of snow for beers and drinks. It will keep your drinks cold and your buzz going! Just simply pack the snow down and builld from the base up. Trust me, its worth it. But if you're lazy like most are just do this:
3.) If You Want To Get Outside, Be Creative:
Just try not to look like a pedophile...
4.) Learn From These Mistakes:
Believe it or not, when things freeze, they get slippery. You don't want to be the person who slips and eats the pavement! You want to be the person that is laughing at the person who slips and eats the pavement. It's just soooooooOOOooo much easier to find humor in the brutally painful, yet epic fails of another than those of my own.
5.) If You Are Going To Report, Make Sure You Fully Abort:
