    Ever desperate, George W. Bush's attempts to scare the Obamas out of the White House are once again thwarted.

    Due to the extreme laundering of honey lately, the bees stake out the White House looking for their bailout!

    Ok you bees. The president says either you take me to the honey or you're not getting any of the stimulus pollen.

    When are they gonna learn? Just because Obama's here it doesn't mean this place flows with milk and honey.

    The beekeeper says to himself, maybe the President should use these bees as front gate security.

    Ahhh, I wish the President would keep his theory of using honey instead of vinegar to a minimum.

    In this economy, it's good to have a plan "bee" for a job.

    That'll teach those meddling media like AC360 from snooping too close to the White House. I think they took the honey bait pretty well.
