    After a successful start to his presidency, Obama took the term 'the bee's knee's' too literally.

    You guys are lucky George Bush isn't still the president. You would "bee" annihilated.

    All of the money being given out by the government lately brings even a swarm of bees looking for some bailout sweetness.

    I've heard President Bush was somewhat of a primate. But not picking up after his own number two's is downright monkey like!

    "President Obama's words were clearly misunderstood by the beekeeper who took the phrase 'you catch more flies with honey than vinegar' to heart with his newfangled venus flytrap honey."

    Cabinet nominees aren't vetted well enough to find tax evasion, but they found out I was a bee keeper 30 years ago?

    Are those Republican spies hovering around the front gate of the White House? Shame on Rush Limbaugh. He could've just used Robert Gates to leak all the Democratic "evils".
