President Obama Returns
to Hawaii Vacation
Post-Cliff Deal

ABC News, by Devin Dwyer

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 1/2/2013 1:42:17 AM

Less than an hour after Congress and the White House resolved the fiscal cliff, President Obama boarded Air Force One to return to his planned Hawaiian holiday vacation. He boarded the plane at Joint Base Andrews in Camp Springs, Md., shortly before midnight Wednesday following a New Year’s Day of political drama on Capitol Hill. The 10-hour overnight flight was scheduled to arrive in Oahu around 5 a.m. local time Wednesday when he will reunite with First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia, who have been vacationing there since just before Christmas.

How nice for him! /s Priorities all in place. /s

Too bad the deal didn´t cut all funding for Air Force 1. That would have been sweet to see him go through airport security like the rest of us as he takes multiple hops in coach class red-eye flights to get back to his multi-millin dollar, tax-payer funded vacay.

Other than wasting a LOT of jet fuel, why exactly did 0bama leave Hawaii in the first place? It´s not like he helped things along...he could have given arrogant interviews from Hawaii.

Found out over the holidays that more relatives than I thought had voted for this poseur. Depressing. Very depressing.

Message: Dear Leader cares, he really cares. So much caring. He flew all the way to DC just to help people. Those greedy Republicans caved under the weight of his massive leadership skills, and now the nation is once again saved from their meanness and ignorance. Dear Leader saved the day, and now on the 7th day must he rest.

I hope the next Congress has the guts to shut this government down. No debt ceiling increase and only cuts. Let´s start proposing cutting out totally the Dept. of Energy and Education to start. No more pork either.

Stopping an increase in the nation´s debt ceiling will amount to "Custer´s Last Stand" for the Repubs. I believe they did the right thing on the fiscal cliff thing, if only that it sets the table the real battle ahead.

Obama put in an appearance during the wheelings and dealings, made a few threats if they did not give him what he wanted (our tax money), and jetted off in the wild blue yonder to plan his next family vacation. I wonder if he will go to Russia this year?

Dittos #4 - What was the point of Barack coming back to Washington in the first place? It´s not like he was needed there for anything. The government runs along fine without him. ValJar runs the White House, the government basically runs itself. All Barack does is cost the taxpayers more money. Maybe it would be better if he just spent his time away on permanent vacation? Wait a minute, he already does that.

Whadda ya want from him? The poor guy’s been toiling tirelessly on our behalf over the past four years. Can we blame him for being in a hurry to get back to vacationing with his family? If spending more time with his family is apparently what he wants, putting in for early retirement would be the way for him to go.

Think “President Joe Biden.” People in the know say if you ask to see his birth certificate, he shows it to you without a moment’s hesitation. With Biden, I believe he’s pretty much a ‘what you see is what you get’ guy. With Obama, we certainly know better by now, don’t we?

"The economy and the social aspects are indivisible to us," commented on Tuesday the Minister of Petroleum and Mining Rafael Ramírez. "We are moving towards the creation of a different system," he added. Regarding the government´s so-called economic offensive, Ramírez stressed their new approach will focus on "production sectors so as to produce our own supplies and food." "Our economy has been under attack, and we will not wait until next year to take action; on the contrary, we have created a new exchange system, we have opened up new ways to allow the inflow of dollars," he stressed.

India´s Supreme Court has created an official third sex for its transgender eunuchs and announced they will have a quota of government jobs and college places to help them overcome discrimination. The decision was met with jubilation by transgender charities who said it was a milestone in their fight against marginalisation in Indian society. "We are elated and thankful to the court," said Kalki Subramanium, a leading transgender rights activist. "The decision has come after a century of suppression and marginalisation by the legal and social systems. "This verdict is certainly landmark and a new beginning.

For Second Night, Valparaiso
Fire Spreads Misery In Chile

At least 12 people are dead and more than 2,000 homes have been destroyed by a large fire that wreaked havoc over the weekend in Valparaiso, Chile. Some 10,000 people have been forced to evacuate parts of the port city. Government spokesman Álvaro Elizalde says those figures are likely to go up as the fire continues to burn. The fire has been driven by strong winds, and efforts to fight the flames also have been complicated by the area´s steep terrain and lack of essential infrastructure, as NPR´s Lourdes Garcia-Navarro reports for our Newscast unit. She adds: "This is a city built on

Amnesty: President Obama often laments "our broken immigration system" as a reason for his failure to enforce its laws. But as a wave of illegals is about to descend here, the hard fact is that it´s his own policies that broke it. The nonpartisan Inter-American Development Bank and the Migration Policy Institute both reported optimal conditions for a big wave of illegal immigration into the U.S. from Mexico and Central America soon. Based on the slowdown in China´s economy, a recovery in U.S. low-skilled jobs such as construction, and rising U.S. interest rates, it´s fair enough.

Nigerian child bride kills man

KANO, Nigeria – A child bride forced into marriage in Nigeria killed a groom and three of his friends with a poisoned meal, police said Thursday. Fourteen-year-old Wasila Umaru was married last week to 35-year-old Umaru Sani, according to assistant superintendent Musa Magaji Majia. Over the weekend, the groom invited a dozen friends to celebrate at his Ungwar Yansoro village, about 60 miles from the northern city of Kano. The teenager told police she bought rat poison at a village market and used it to prepare a dish of rice. "The suspect confessed to committing the crime and said she did it because she

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

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

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
