Recently my wife was flipping through the channels while I was diligently working on some website updates and our daughter was busy, well, being an eighteen month old and causing general havoc in preparation for her Wednesday night bath. When to what did my wife's eyes and my ears draw our attention? None other than Barack Obama as a Jeopardy category, that's what.
Now, the questions on Jeopardy under the Obama category were all quite simple to answer and far too easy for a second round Jeopardy category if you ask me. But they did get me thinking about what actual answers could have appeared on the popular game show, that would have been more challenging for most Americans to answer about our new President and definitely more informative.
So, this is Obama Jeopardy! Welcome and now for our categories: Things That Happen When Obama Speaks, Obama's Similarities With Other Historical Figures, Obamanomics, Obama's Friends And Relations, Obama's Constitutional Ineptitude and lastly, Things We Really Do Not Know About Obama.
