President Obama to appear on the WWE

President ObamaPresident Obama will be appearing on the NBC special WWE Tribute to the Troops on December 19th. Granted, it will be a pre-taped message for the soldiers, but that still counts, right?

It won't even be Obama's first WWE appearance. There were pre-taped messages on one of the WWE broadcasts during the last presidential election by John McCain, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama (this was before Clinton ceded to Obama). The upcoming event is, to the best of my knowledge, the first WWE taping he has done as President of the United States.

Of course, in my imagination President Obama appears live at the event and steps into the ring. He then calls out WWE Champion Sheamus to a title match. He almost gets the pin until Captain Lou Albano comes back from the dead, runs into the ring with a steel chair and causes a disqualification on the whole match. This sort of thing is probably why my therapy bills are so high.

If Obama actually did some work and stopped appearing on TV (We see him more often than we see the nightly news anchor), he might do a better job.

I have never seen a President so intend on being on TV as he is, he never misses an opportunity to be on there telling us how well he is doing. Telling us and actually doing good are very different.

I hope John Cena and DX comes out and kicks the little socialist's ass. Then give the Presidency to Dick Cheney and the VP job to Sarah Palin.

People can put down the president, which I'm for, by the way, but don't put down the WWe, They went over to entertain our troops. You can call it fake or whatever you like but the bottom line is that Vince and the WWe care for our troops.

My fantasy match is Obama gets pummelled by Vince and is forced to submit his Presidency to the McMahon family.
