(PP)- Friday a White House press release was inadvertently distributed early to news organizations announcing that President Barack Hussein Obama had signed an executive order giving himself a pay raise to $500,000 annually.

  White House staff failed to squash the story as the press release was intended to be distributed late in the day on Friday, after the deadline when most news agencies are able to publish breaking news stories.

Critics of the President’s executive order say the move makes Obama seem “politically tone deaf” because he gave himself a raise at a time when the federal government is arbitrarily cutting services and benefits due to sequestration.

“What a Dick,” said a pizza delivery boy at The Palookaville Post’s news room.

Presidential pay raises are usually approved by Congress, the last increase being authorized by both Congress and Bill Clinton in 1999 and went into effect in 2001.

The Presidential pay raise also now includes a $50,000 annual expense account, a $100,000 nontaxable travel account and $19,000 for entertainment.

I thought "we all" had to tighten our belts?
What happened to that?
And why didn't he mention in his campaign that one of his objectives was to double his salary?
I guess he forgot.

Whoa, isn't Congress supposed to vote on this. Who the hell is he to just sign an order to get a pay raise? If that be the case have him sign an order to vacate...!
