Obama schedules photo-ops,
parties, golf as ‘cliff’ nears

Washington Times, by Dave Boyer

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/12/2012 7:23:02 PM

Since returning from a trip to southeast Asia on Nov. 21, President Obama has managed to play three rounds of golf but has met face-to-face only once with Speaker John A. Boehner, the man with whom he is trying to strike a deal on taxes and spending that could prevent another recession. With the deadline for going over the “fiscal cliff” less than three weeks away, the president’s schedule this week is exceptionally light. It does not include any time on the links with Mr. Boehner, Ohio Republican, who is also an avid golfer. On Monday, Mr. Obama’s only public event was a trip to Detroit,

Comments:
When do we start calling him President in name only? It is obvious he has no desire to do the hard work necessary. He doesn´t want to bother with the mundane duties of acting like a real leader.

This is all this boob knows how to do and half this country is fine with it! The problem is not Obama. The problem is the irresponsible, ignorant, leftist fools that voted for him!

It seems he loves to tweak conservatives. How to tweak um is what is discussed in the morning briefings.

This is nothing. BO knows he can get away with it and then some and those who voted for BO don´t give a rats´ you know what. Only when tyranny is knocking on their door will wake up the gnats.

Original Poster, I like that. President in name only = PINO. Like PIAPS. And RINO.

Where is he playing golf at this time of year? Not on any course near where Boehner could demolish him.

The DC area has been fairly warm for the last few weeks. Plenty warm for him to kick our military golfer s off the courses so he and his homies can have them all to themselves.

We should rename the White House to Delta House from the movie Animal House because Obama does about as much work as the Delta frat boys did studying.

But hey, to his supporters, he "cares" dontcha know?

In all fairness, the "preezy of the united steezy" is getting ready for his $4+ million dollar vacay to Hawaii and he needs the practice to be in "shape" for he and moochelle´s excellent adventure at Taxpayer expense for THREE WEEKS! Most of us are enjoying a "stay-at-home" vacation, but hey, can´t we all live vicariously through our dear Leader´s life and times. BTW, why isn´t the GOP mentioning this latest excursion by obama and his minions?.....never mind.

Don´t be hard on the man, he just spent more than four years of doing nothing but campaigning, playing midnight basketball, shanking golf balls and kneeling on his prayer rug. He hasn´t figured out the next step yet. He´s the Present President.

Poster 10:

Oblamer isn´t worried. Those leeches will just blame the ´Pubs. Oblahblah knows this. He´s got the media watching his back.

Obummer is getting ready to go on vacation, all the while the country is going over the cliff. He doesn´t care. Leaving town is his standard response. He did it during the debt ceiling impasse. He left it to the ´Pubs to clean up the mess and take the blame. But, in Obummer´s stupid brain, this is "leadership".

Re #10: The Obamaphones are funded by a Universal Service "fee" that telecom providers are forced to pay to the FCC but in reality is passed along to subscribers. That is you and me. The makers paying for the takers yet again.

Personally, I hope that the whole shebang goes right over the friggin´ cliff and the economy tanks. Ultimately, it´s always the president´s economy, despite the propagandizing of the media. Obama is the one that signed the debt ceiling deal last year that is the reason for all this angst. In reality the economy can´t get much worse anyway. Screw ´em all.

In Dreams From My Alleged Father ,
Obama described a huge fight that he had with his mother during his senior year of high school.
His mother basically called him a lazy bum
who had terrible grades , no desire for college ,
no college applications or visits ( hmmm...how did he get into Occidental at the last minute ? ), scummy druggie friends and
absolutely no ambition , etc.
He wrote that he tried using the big smile he often used to " trick " white people , but, it no longer worked on Mom.
Obama shouted back that being a lazy bum
was actually his life´s ambition.
Millions of American voters have made Barry´s dream come true.
By contrast , Romney was a hard worker his entire life .
He earned his law degree and his MBA simultaneously
and graduated with honors.
While Barry spent his teens and twenties sleeping , shouting into a bullhorn about whitey and snorting coke.
Both men have obviously not deviated from the path they began early in life.

Obama knows deep down that Boehner will eventually cave. Only because the republicans have a small measure of responsibility and a large concern for their jobs. Anybody in Boehner´s position who had a bit of courage would wait the kenyan out and let the country come to the edge, where the democrats would blink because they are perceived to be in charge.

Obama plays quite a bit of golf. And Boehner plays with him. You know, I don´t care what Obama does, I want to know what the Republican majority in the house does....which is nothing.
The most powerful branch of government is the House...and we have a wimp ass no good running it. The House of Reps seem to want to represent the MSM instead of the American people they should be there for. They worry about their damn images with the msm talk shows.
Hey dumb ass Repubs stop going on these shows!
Republican ignorameseseseseseessss!!!!!!!!!!!

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

On April 7 a short video of the 60-year-old priest, from Oldcastle, County Meath, singing at a recent wedding ceremony went live. In just 11 days the touching video has racked up close to 30 million hits on YouTube and his fame now reaches to every corner of the earth.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
