President Obama's 12 Toughest Decisions

(cross-posted from IMAO)

According to Vice President Joe Biden:
"I've watched him make decisions that would make another man or woman's hair curl... I think I can say... no president, and I would argue in the 20th century and including now the 21st century, has had as many serious problems which are cases of first-instance laid on his table"

Interesting proposition, since Obama does, in fact, have curly hair.

Still, the man HAS faced his share of toughies, like:

Over or under?
1) Whether to spell his dog's name "Bo" or "Bho".

2) Whether to dodge left or right if accidentally finding himself between Michelle and a tamale.

3) When embracing "Obamacare", whether or not to capitalize the "c".

4) When informed that Seal Team 6 was ready to move on Bin Laden, whether to use a 9-iron or a pitching wedge.

5) Whether to support the northern or southern half of the Keystone Pipeline.

6) When giving important nationwide addresses, whether to start with the right or left teleprompter.

7) During negotiations with Iran, is it better to give in or just capitulate?

8) To create green jobs, should you invest in a solar company that's near bankruptcy, or invest in a company making electric cars that's already gone under?

9) Which glass should you put the iocane powder in if your opponent is NOT a Sicilian? (This comes up frequently at cabinet meetings).

10) Whether to sneak guns down to Mexican drug lords, or just ignore border security so they can get them themselves.

11) When spending tons of tax dollars on shovel-ready jobs, whether to use short tons, long tons, or metric tons.

12) Is today the day to tell Axelrod to just give up on the combover already?


Still haunting him: how to fill those empty hours after January 20th, 2013.
