Obama buys books in Va. to
promote independent shops

Associated Press, by Joe Gorlik

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/24/2012 11:18:13 PM

Arlington, Va. - President Barack Obama made a quick trip to a Virginia bookstore for some Christmas shopping. The president took his daughters, Sasha and Malia, to One More Page Books in Arlington, Va., on Saturday afternoon. The White House says Obama was promoting an effort called “small business Saturday” to encourage shoppers to patronize mom-and-pop businesses after Thanksgiving. At the store, Obama held up his BlackBerry, apparently looking up a book title as he spoke with shop owner Eileen McGervey. He said “preparation” was the key to his shopping.

Comments:
If you need to check the setting on your BS Meter, this short article will help tune it. How? 0bama claims to be "Christmas" shopping. If he can´t mention God in his annual Thanksgiving message to US as a nation, he doesn´t recognize Christmas. Oh, and using the Blackberry was his portable TOTUS.

Which family members would that be Zero? Your brother´s child that Dinesh De Souza paid for his surgery? Your aunt on welfare? Your uncle? Maybe some typical white people related to your very mysterious mother?

Sounds like this was just nothing more than a slap in the face to Walmart, since Walmart won this latest battle with the union issue.

If he really wanted to help he would cut taxes, cut regulations, not impose Obama care on small business, and not block real customers from coming into my bookstore.....

But, he just wants a photo op..

Oh my god, I mean oh my Obama! I´m getting all uh moist inside.. He´s just so, so so Dreamy!!! It´s like He looks at you and you just melt like butter and you wanna get on your knees... Oh my Obama! I´m going to faint, He´s soooo Dreamy!!!!

I always thought there was something creepy about Obama´s "smile", and now I hear the same creepiness in his "laugh" (or whatever you can call it). But the dark, hidden agenda behind the persona is exactly what his worshippers love about him. Anyway, I Hope Malia and Sasha enjoy their copies of Rules For Radicals, The People´s History Of The United States, and Das Kapital (no, he didn´t buy them the Manifesto - they already use it as study material at home).

#5 is right. Every time Obama visits a place of business, or even praises one in a speech, the business goes belly up. Reverse Midas touch.

1. A huge number of small businesses have been destroyed by Obama´s policies. Not because of those policies "going wrong," but because they produced the only results they could have.

2. And this little, nearly-unseen, weekend exercise in clumsy propaganda cost us taxpayers how much? Didn´t calculate that, AP? Hmmm? How many SS agents? How many zillion-dollar armored SUVs? How much did it cost the locals for their cops´ overtime? How many area businesses had to close that day? For how long? How much time and gas did locals waste so Stinky could do what he pleased, when he pleased, where he pleased -- all to no ["no," as in "zero"] beneficial purpose?

The whole thing, somehow, stinks more by the day.

So Barry went book shopping at an small business shop, the very one he wants to raise taxes on and put them out of business. Isn´t Barry soooooo special.

What´s really amazing here is how Obama tries to portray himself as an honest president trying to do his job while his hacks are working behind the scenes trying to destroy the country from the inside out.It´s not just economic liberalism but cultural and foreign policy liberalism.

Look at all the so called progress the left has accomplished over the past 4 years,does anybody think a single one of them is happy?

Not that I follow gossip(snicker) but i was reading about Elizabeth Montgomery´s behind the scenes basket case life yesterday.She had all the trappings of the rich and famous but was tormented by a fatal attraction to older and abusive men.

The point is a person´s pubic image can be crafted by media specialists that make them likeable or whatever.These are the type advisers that have Obama going to NJ or this bookstore.

I think Obama´s daughters had a lot to do with him getting reelected.Even though they´re rarely in public,people of all stripes seem to like them regardless of what creeps Obama and his wife are.I keep my fingers crossed that they don´t grow up to be far left liberals and they have as sense of proportion over what´s right and wrong.

So the Dunce-in-Chief buys a book to get himself a photo op while the Secret Service no doubt turned away hundreds of potential customers so he could be "safe" inside the store? Just like he drives hundreds of military people off the golf course at Bolling Air Force base in Washington so the selfish little twit can hit the ball around. The only thing "transparent" about this boy is his sick personality.

Wherever the Won goes there is a LARGE bubble of protection. Hundreds of paying customers are blocked . Streets are closed and employees are searched, bomb sniffed and background checked. When He stopped for an ice cream in Bar Harbor, Maine a couple of summers ago there were F-16s circling above all day. Was all of that really necessary ?

So why isn´t the story by the press headlined as "Tech challenged president still buying paper books"?. If Bush or Romney were the president, the story would be all about how he is in such a rut and so unprogressive that he doesn´t know you don´t have to spend taxpayer money on Secret Service details going to a bookstore when you can go online and download the book, the whole process taking less than 1 minute. How stupid is he?

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

GM to seek court protection

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

Peshawar , Pakistan — The Pakistani Taliban said Wednesday that they were ending a six-week-old ceasefire but would continue peace talks with the Pakistani government.

Court Deportations Drop
43 Percent in Last Five Years

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
