Despite ´cliff,´ preparations on
for Obama Hawaii vacation

Washington Times [DC], by Susan Crabtree

The prospect of pitching over the federal "fiscal cliff" isn´t stopping the White House from moving forward with President Obama´s year-end Hawaii vacation plans.Even as Republicans and Democrats report minimal progress so far in talks to meet a deadline to avoid sharp tax hikes and spending cuts, the White House was moving forward with the first family´s and friends´ $4 million vacation to Mr. Obama´s native state. Residents living near the beachfront homes in Kailua where President Obama has vacationed every year since 2008 received alerts this week about the restrictions and expected travel disruptions

Any of his liberal pals think it´s cool Barry went to play with Tinker Toys today, instead of working with congress?

Let´s see... Since the election, Obama has taken a week vaca to Asia, 2 trips for campaign stops to motivate his civilian army & met with Boehner for 25 minutes.

GOP needs to take oout a full page ad, describing a bill passed in the house to stop fiscal cliff, so Amerikans know they tried... then leave DC the same day Obama does.

What if all of the Pubbies headed to Hawaii (on their own dime of course) at the same time as the president? What would he think if they held a little session of Congress there on Oahu for a couple of days?

Pity the poor bride and groom on their honeymoon at the same time he is there or the couple that saved ten years for the big vacation in Hawaii.

How many people get to take their extended family and friends on vacay courtesy of taxpayers ?

Obama genuinely doesn´t care about any cliff. He desires this chaos and looks at it as an opportunity to further weaken America, while gaining more control and power over the people. Not all but many of the Obama voters will very soon be regretting how they voted.

I presume our Royal Family is, as usual, depending on other people to actually do the work while they while away their days in leisurely pursuits at our expense.

It is crystal clear that the Obama´s don´t really care about this "fiscal cliff", where hidden taxes will wipe a good percentage of everyone´s remaining money out of their bank accounts and into the union and government pension coffers.

Our Royal Family behave as though they expect to be here forever, and if our worst nightmares come true, they just might be.

You would think that this year of all years that Obama would decide to go home to Chicago or stay in the White House for Christmas since the country is in such dire straits. The fact that he would choose to put the burden for an expensive vacation on the back of the taxpayer says a lot about his character. Why lead by example when you can enjoy a luxurious vaycay on someone else´s dime? This kind of behavior will continue when we go over the fiscal cliff and hit rock bottom. After all, he and wifey are entitled to as much taxpayer money as they can get. This mindset is the same in the ghetto or in the White House. It´s reparations, baby!

It is time for the GOP to walk away from the deal on the table and let the country go over the fiscal cliff. Obama and the Democrats won the election - let them figure it out. Let the taxes increase. Let the spending cuts go through. Do not vote for any more debt ceiling increases. Let the economy go into recession. Take the pain and the blame now. Screw this fraudulent evil doer who is a son of Lucifer.

I hate to keep pointing it out, but let´s get used to it. For those of us who voted on November 6th and marked the box for Romney, atta boys/girls. Those who could not get off their behinds and vote because of that individualism statement they had to make by sitting out, good job...real slick. Not every day the incumbent president gets 8 million fewer votes than before..and still winds.

We can expect a steady diet of Obie´s in-your-face politics for another four years and again during Obie´s third term.

Because Boehner can´t politic at Obie´s level, he´s already been defined by Obie on the cliff so that whatever the outcome, Boehner gets blamed. On the other hand Boehner did not get to where he is because he cant survive in politics. Always a chance he can rub Obie´s nose in it.

At the end of the day, big egos control the issue. If you were to ask Obie who it is he thinks he is working for, wanna guess what he´d say?

Think it’s easy? Think fundamentally transforming an entire country is a piece o’ cake? Think again! It’s strenuous work and he deserves some time off from the rigors of destroying our once exceptional nation. Drunk (or high) with power after his November 6 reelection, and with the aid of his ever-present, fawning, corrupt media toadies, he’s going to make all his dictatorial dreams come true. But, first things first. His vacation: Job One!

Let´s just go over the fiscal cliff and get it over with, instead of death by a thousand cuts. People will still keep voting a Republican majority into the House and no more free Obama phones (by the way, who pays the monthly bills on those phones). I hope I´m not doing that.

Everything will then start going to the SCOTUS and we still have a majority there (I think).

$4,000,000 for a vacation? I wish I could scrape enough together to pay my student loans off, freakin´ loan sharks.
My hubby and I wanted to get away for a couple days for our anniversary (2 years!) later this month, but, no, Navy changed his work schedule. My husband works his rear off with little pay and the CIC takes a $4 million vacation in the middle of a crises.
Trust me, it there is a military coup , Obama will be on the receiving end.

Obama has already conveyed his strategy. He will let us fall off the cliff so he can blame the obstructionists Republicans. Its all about image. What the Republicans need to do is to stay in Washington and work. When we drop off the cliff Republicans must run campaign-style ads showing Obama on vacation while they were working. Its a simple strategy…but potentially devastating.

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

It’s Good Friday. Time for the leftwing president to do something bad. Barack Obama just punted on the Keystone Pipeline, again, and some Democrats say they are angry at him. The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections. Republicans, as well as red-state Democrats who want the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline approved, slammed the administration for the delay. Democrats even threatened to find ways to

A church in Grapevine, Texas, is getting into the Easter spirit this week by creating a giant chalk-portrait of Jesus Christ in their parking lot. Fellowship Church is led by Pastor Ed Young, who started the evangelical Christian church in 1990 with about 150 people in Irving. They now have 10 church campuses worldwide. His father is Dr. Ed Young, the head of Second Baptist here in Houston. According to church spokesman Andy Boyd, the 17,000-square-foot drawing of the face of Jesus took 700 volunteers over 9,100 man-hours to create. They also used 6,700 individual pieces of chalk and 125

The Obama administration is extending the agency review period for the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline, potentially delaying the decision until after the November elections -- sparing President Obama a tough political decision in the process. A senior State Department official said agencies have stopped crafting comments because a Nebraska Supreme Court decision could change the pipeline route and, ultimately, the environmental, socioeconomic and cultural factors that went into the environmental review. The official did not directly answer a question whether an altered pipeline route would require a new environmental review.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the
