With no deal,
Obama heads to Hawaii

Washington Post, by David Nakamura

Original Article

Posted By:grayjay, 12/21/2012 8:38:58 PM

With financial negotiations all but halted, President Obama was headed out of Washington on Friday evening for his annual winter vacation in Hawaii. Obama is likely to have a short trip this year; aides said he is scheduled to return Wednesday, a day after Christmas, to resume discussions with congressional leaders on how to avert the fiscal cliff. “Merry Christmas – because we didn’t get this done, I’ll see you next week,” Obama said after telling reporters he still had hope of striking a deal to prevent taxes from rising on the middle class next year.

Comments:
So, while we taxpayers/business people are in a total quandry about tax planning, Obama and all the other idiots in Washington head home for the holidays. The market only dropped 121 points today, more sure to follow. It only costs a few million for Obama to jet off to Hawaii today, returning Wednesday, and I´m sure going back to Hawaii a few days later. Hey, it´s all free! It´s great to be King.

Notice the article states, `Obama and his family are scheduled to rent a resort on Kailua, on the island of Oahu, as they have done each year of his presidency`. This sentence was written to imply the Obama`s are actually paying for their own vacation. Aaaaahahaha

Most Presidents go home for vacation. Obama owns a house in Chicago. Has he actually ever gone there? Has he ever even set foot in that house?

Too good for Camp David. These folks look out for number one like real capitalists, but they´re nonprofit tycoons.
In a way this is getting very enjoyable. King Barry has to fly back from Hawaii on Wednesday? Ooh he´s gonna be mad. I think we should go over the cliff just to spite him, and gun control is a silly loser. Get the popcorn out.

Makes you almost feel sorry for him, cutting his vacation short and jetting around on our dime. Not really.

When did the Wookie and her troupe go to Hawaii ? Notice since the election, she isn´t on TV everyday telling US what to eat and BTW-vote for us ? Overhaul time.

Just how often have these gay-blades taken vacations in Hawaii as private citizens without the trappings/money of the white-house?

Don´t they have a house in Chicago they could go to? Or is that off bounds for some reason? You would think they would go ´´home´´ for Christmas like most people ....unless they don´t ´´do´´Christmas. Where´s their family? I´m sure Militant Michelle has some kind of family she might want to see...or maybe they don´t want to see her....or maybe they are ALL being flown to the Island at our expense...kind of like that India trip, eh? Truly a bunch of gadflies!!!!!

I don´t begrudge the president a Christmas vacation, but I suspect this will be the first of many vacations come the new year.
Several posters have mentioned that The Won has a home in Chicago. Well, you don´t expect him to go there do you? The weather is so cold and uncomfortable.

May you live in interesting times, is the ancient Chinese curse. Well, i feel like I´m living in some sort of black comedy. When Clinton would get away with murder, I´d say, "can you imagine a Republican President getting away with this?" But now? I mean, not even Clinton could get away with this. All the rules were changed for Obama. For him, or maybe I should write, for Him, there are no rules.

Given the daily murder count in zippy´s old ´community´, I´m betting that the SS won´t let him go to his own house in Chi-town, not that he´d want too anyway. Hawaii is so much more pleasant and elitist.

At least the maintanence people at the WH will maybe get to enjoy those 54 Christmas trees. Bet there isn´t one in the mansion we´re renting in Hawaii, but there are probably plenty of prayer rugs.

He shouldn´t return with the idea that he must´lead´. He should return with the idea that he should negotiate as the head of one of the three co-equal branches of federal government.

If one of us was gifted with a four million buck Christmas we´d have to report it and pay taxes on it. Same with entertainment, ladies and lords and ladies in waiting, private schooling, etc. maybe it is time to re evaluate how our president lives. America was founded to eliminate the corrupt royals of Europe, but politicians have created one of their own right under our noses.

Of course. Zero´s forte is to do his usual nothing in a timely manner, so that a "crisis" forms because of some real or contrived deadline, then he offers nothing, while waiting for his opponent to come up with a plan to demonize. And guess who comes along to try to kick the football every time. Then the Pubbies come up with some God-awful last minute compromise, and America loses again. Lather rinse repeat.

Zero got exactly what he wanted so far. No deal, and the media trashing the party that actually addresses the issues involved. He also got the trip he wanted, going to Hawaii without the Mooch, and returning without her, similar to all their vacations. Now he gets to return to the media fabrication that he is giving up his vacation to lead this nation in a time of crisis, and he will whine it to the hilt. Until he gets back, Boehner should bring an empty chair to every press conference, and periodically look at it and ask for Zero´s opinion.

# 3 Obama promised during the campaign of 2008
that he would go back to his Rezko home in Chicago every 6 weeks .
This was to give the illusion that he was a regular guy.
During the first two years, they went back more often than they do now.
Memorial Day 2010 , Barry did not go to Arlington National Cemetery for the traditional wreath laying ceremony.
Instead , he went back to his Chicago home for a birthday bash with Reggie Love .
The Secret Service was photographed walking Bo at night so the two love birds could have some privacy.
I believe Michelle was on another grand tour of the world on our dime.
The tabloids at the checkouts are now saying it will cost us $300,00 for a separate aircraft just to fly out her clothes to Hawaii.
Their non stop luxurious vacations and top shelf parties the next four years are going to make our heads spin ,
our stomachs roil and our blood pressure skyrocket.
We ain´t seen nothing, yet.

Perhaps a deal could include the Obama´ spend every vacation in Kenya. They would feel so at home among around the 90% population with skin tones from dark brown to black and never have to face racists or need 10 t0 20 vehicles in a motorcade. Oh to be just one of the crowd could create such freedom.

Obama is getting what he wants. More taxes, more spending, and the Republican party in disarray. Obama knows the Republican party is in disarray so he can stick a thumb in their eye by going to Hawaii. The Republican party needs to get its act together.

He wants to go over the cliff. That way He will have a ready excuse for the coming recession that will really be caused by the policies of His socialist party. But He will blame the republicans and the cliff, and the leftist press whores will eagerly go along with the sham.

WASHINGTON — President and Mrs. Obama will visit Fort Hood on Wednesday for a memorial service after the most recent deadly shooting spree, the White House said Sunday. Army Spc. Ivan Lopez killed three soldiers and wounded 16 others before taking his own life on Wednesday, the second mass shooting at Fort Hood in the last five years. Obama also attended the memorial in November 2009 after a spree by Maj. Nidal Hasan. The Army psychiatrist killed 13, and has since been sentenced to death by a court martial. After visiting Fort Hood, Obama headlines fundraisers later Wednesday in Houston for the Democrats’

The White House systematically delayed enacting a series of rules on the environment, worker safety and health care to prevent them from becoming points of contention before the 2012 election, according to documents and interviews with current and former administration officials. Some agency officials were instructed to hold off submitting proposals to the White House for up to a year to ensure that they would not be issued before voters went to the polls, the current and former officials said.

The Obama administration is engaged in a broad push to make more home loans available to people with weaker credit, an effort that officials say will help power the economic recovery but that skeptics say could open the door to the risky lending that caused the housing crash in the first place. President Obama’s economic advisers and outside experts say the nation’s much-celebrated housing rebound is leaving too many people behind, including young people looking to buy their first homes and individuals with credit records weakened by the recession.

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

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.
