Welcome Back, Carter

Democrats and Republicans alike are comparing the Obama presidency to the Carter presidency.  Let’s have some fun with that fact.

During the Carter presidency, Americans watched the TV show “Welcome Back, Kotter”, which had a teacher as its title character.

Obama often lectures people as if he were a teacher.  So, let’s create an imaginary show called “Welcome Back, Carter”, with Obama playing the title character.

Now, you get to select who plays the other roles. The only rule is that the people selected must have  worked for Obama some time during his presidency.

If you are too young to remember the show “Welcome Back, Kotter”, then you may substitute another show.

However, you should be aware that by the time you reach retirement age, Social Security may have been cancelled.
