President Obama’s speech on the economy yesterday upset the pea farmers of America because he compared paying higher taxes to Americans having to “eat our peas”.  A spokesman for the White House immediately responded that Obama was not saying that peas are hard to swallow like taxes, but that they are healthy and good for us. 

- They were afraid the farmers would give the President a peas of their minds! 

- Peas go great with all the pork politicians are always attaching to bills.

- If he wants Republican support, the President is going to have to stop talking about peas, and dangle some kind of carrot!
