A cowboy from Texas attends a social function where Barack Obama
is trying to gather more support for his Health Plan.
Once he discovers the cowboy is from President Bush's home area,
he starts to belittle him by talking in a southern drawl and single
As he was doing that, he kept swatting at some flies that were
buzzing around his head. The cowboy says, "Y'all havin' some problem
with them circle flies?"
Obama stopped talking and said, "Well, yes, if that's what
they're called, but I've never heard of circle flies."
"Well Sir," the cowboy replies, "circle flies hang around

"Oh," Obama replies as he goes back to rambling. But, a moment
later he stops and bluntly asks, "Are you calling me a horse's ass?"
"No, Sir," the cowboy replies, "I have too much respect for the
citizens of this country to call their President a horse's ass."
"That's a good thing," Obama responds and begins rambling on
After a long pause, the cowboy, in his best Texas drawl
says,"Hard to fool them flies, though."
