Northeast Ohio Man Calls 911, Asks For President Obama


1 comment


As the cogs of 'Murica slow to a grind this morning after Congress boozed it up last night before throwing the "Gone Fishin'" sign out on the lawn, and reasonable folks across the country stand perplexed and angry at the douchenozzles in Washington shutting down the federal government for the first time in 17 years, we all look for solutions.

Maybe someone in Sandusky or our nation's capital should set aside their preconceptions and take this guy's phone call. I mean, at this point, he doesn't sound like the craziest guy in the room.

Via the Sandusky Register:

Henry Greenwald, 46, of the 700 block of E. State St., called the sheriff’s office five times within an hour, each time asking to speak to the president, the report said.

He refused to identify himself or provide his location, and he also claimed to be God. He again asked to speak with Obama about fixing the world, according to the report.


Cops did find Greenwald was in possession of some marijuana and he admitted to using the drug yesterday, but if Congress can tip the flasks before getting down to the business of shutting down a country, should we really care?
