    I'll give you 50 bucks for every time you hold this down when a reporter tries to ask me a question about airplanes or the flu. Okay, maybe Chrysler too. You know what? Just...just hold it down continuously until they all leave.

    See right here? I have different sounds to summon different staff members. One is for damage control when a member of my senior staff puts their foot in their mouth. One for when I am trying to appoint someone and I find out they have a shady past. One for when Boo has to go out and one for when I am lost in the White House.

    Due to the economy, President Obama has been forced to lay off the majority of his body guards; therefore, leaving him with an airhorn to use when faced with a dangerous situation.

    May 1, 2009 at 6:03 pm |
  47. Jennifer, New Rochelle, NY

    With the war, the economy, and now swine flu, we are in panic mode, Mr. Shinseki. So we're gonna sound the alarm. Here, you do it.
