New Twist on Old Classic Game: 'Obama Bullshit Bingo'

by, Megan Ward

'Obama Bullshit Bingo' Instructions:

1. Before Barrack Obama's next televised speech, prepare your "Bullshit Bingo" card by drawing a square.

I find that 5" x 5" is a good size -- and dividing it into columns --five across and five down. That will give you 25 1-inch blocks.... See More

2. Write one of the following words/phrases in each block:

. Restored our reputation
. Strategic fit
. Let me be clear
. Make no mistake
. Back from the brink
. Signs of recovery
. Out of the loop
. Benchmark
. Job creation
. Fiscal restraint
. Win-win
. Affordable health care
. Previous Administration
. Greed on Wall Street
. At the end of the day
. Empower (or empowerment)
. Touch base
. Mindset
. Corporate greed
. Ballpark
. Game plan
. Leverage
. Inherited as in "I inherited this mess"
. Relief for working families (alternate - "unprecedented") **

3. Check off the appropriate block when you hear one of these words or phrases

4. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, stand up and shout
