The President Abides


In keeping with President Obama's newly developed "I don't give an 'F' what the GOP thinks" attitude, here are some lines from The Big Lebowski that the president might consider working into his public comments or discussions with Republicans in the coming days.

"This is a very complicated case... You know, a lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what-have-you's."

"You got the wrong guy. I'm the Dude, man."

"You want a toe? I can get you a toe, believe me. There are ways, Dude. You don't wanna know about it, believe me."

"Careful, man, there's a beverage here!"

"You mark that frame an 8, and you are entering a world of pain."

"These men are nihilists, there's nothing to be afraid of."

"I'm the Dude. So that's what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing."

"Saturday . . . is Shabbos, the Jewish day of rest. That means that I don't work, I don't drive a car, I don't fucking ride in a car, I don't handle money, I don't turn on the oven, and I sure as shit don't fucking roll!"

"This will not stand, ya know, this aggression will not stand, man."

"The Dude abides."
