After Congress agreed temporarily to avert the "fiscal cliff" last night, President Barack Obama hailed the deal in brief remarks delivered from the White House, and then headed to Air Force One to take a midnight flight to Hawaii. Obama had left his family days earlier to return to Washington to deal with the "fiscal cliff."

Does anyone care about the US economy as much as Our Hero, The Eternal President Obama? His caring knows no bounds, so much does He care, and care some more. The more He spends, the more He cares - it´s like a miracle.

This is the most uncaring insensitive president ever. And now that he doesn´t have to worry about another election, get ready for Michelle and her extravagant vacations!

I am so tired of being worried all the time. My husband has lost his second job this past year and I had to let my health insurance go because of premiums being doubled. I have had no raise for going on three years. I am trying to figure out how to pay bills, buy groceries and purchase our long term medication on my small salary. With the obamacare disaster just around the corner things are not going to get any better. This "deal" accomplishes nothing except extend the dems love of tax, spend, buy votes with goodies. And the so called president gives two snarky statements and then flies off to Hawaii. Why in the world voters put him back into office instead of on a permanent Hawaii vacation is a mystery.

Interesting. I read in another outlet the total cost of Obama´s Royal Progress to Hawaii was $7 Million. But then, perhaps they were including the cost of the first trip, plus his melodramatic reappearance in Washington.

Whatever, as Gen X likes to say.

He uses that 747 like a taxi cab.

Why?

1) Because he can and 2) he doesn´t have to pay the tab.

Arrogant, shameless, and narcissistic to the max.

Our children and grandchildren will be paying the tab for him and our feckless Congress on both sides who have wrecked our beloved country - morally, spiritually, economically, and socially.

We need to start over.

Obama is just another celebrity for the low information pop culture voter, who actually admires and participates vicariously in the extravagant lifestyle. What´s the use of being a celebrity if you don´t get and flaunt the perks? Obama´s fans would lose respect for him if he behaved like a non-celebrity. And for the Left wing "mainstream" media it is still a case of hear, see and speak no evil of the man they made president.

Please know that as a god on earth, that Lord Obama does not require an aircraft to travel to Hawaii. He only flies on AF1 at $180,000 per hour so that the mere mortals who support him can get there as well.

True cost of trip is surely in the $35 to $45 million range, since an enormous WH staff, including chefs, Secret Service contingents*, communication teams, national security teams and Air Force transports with crews travel with him. While Obama will spend most of his time golfing with his Choom Gang, the approximately 500 to 700 people supporting him need rooms, meals, transport, etc..

* - Val Jar has her own 8-12 person SS detail, plus 24/7 limo, and staff. She is Obama´s brain, not withstanding fact that he is a god.

#4 I know of no one who is optimistic or happy about the future. And to think there is at least 4 more years of this bleakness and feeling of dread. Possibly more than 4 years and really little hope of reversing things. In a real world and a just world people such as those who populate the left would be tarred and feathered and shunned by society. All I can say is just hang in there.

As a retired Aviator who once ran a charter outfit I find the outrageous figure to transport an alien anywhere to make me want to go back to work.
Why we would have boxed the thing up and sent it by ground transport and frieghter to it´s final resting place.
Of course we would not have suffered the feral secreting servicers reveries disbursements. Hos and blo are expensive these days. That alone would save millions.

The next time it, le undocumented alien curtseying bath house queen, needs to shipped somewhere call us. We could save the working American taxpayers millions.

One caveat: We do not handle sasquatches period.
I am somewhat surprised that the air force does, but then I am an ex-Marine.

Agreed, actual all-up cost must be far higher.

Too bad the Enemedia hide those costs, and the New Media haven´t really dug them out and publicized them.

Remember this is a $1.4 billion [at least] per-year White House. Spent on a usurper who isn´t in office legally.

That vacation (after 32 other vacations) to Hawaii has cost taxpayers about $10M now. Aren´t you thrilled that the Kenyan in the WH has absolutely no concern about wasteful spending when it comes to himself?

Jesse Jackson was on America’s Newsroom today to discuss gun control. Jackson said assault weapons are a threat to national security. Jackson also said gun manufacturers should be held responsible for shootings.“These semi-automatic weapons, these assault weapon, can only kill people and in fact are threats to national security. The young man who did the killing in Aurora, Colorado with the arsenal he had. He was right near the airport, right near the runways near the airport in Denver. He could shoot down airplanes. so this is a matter of homeland security… We need to make manufacturers more accountable for their product.“

Beware: ObamaCare’s now reality

President Obama’s re-election and Democratic gains in the US Senate end any possibility of repealing the Obama health law. It will roll out as written, imposing major changes soon on you and your family. If you are uninsured because you can’t afford it, help may be on the way. But if you are one of the 250 million Americans with coverage, there are big problems ahead. If you get your health insurance through a job, you might lose it as of Jan. 1, 2014. That’s when the new “employer mandate” kicks in, requiring employers with 50 or more full-time workers to provide the government-designed health plan or pay a fine. The government plan is so expensive, it adds $1.79 per hour to the cost of a full-time employee. That’s incidental if you're hiring neurosurgeons but a hefty increase for hiring busboys and sales clerks.

Gluttons of greed,” the Obama campaign's dramatic voice over says. “And the evil genius who towered over them?” The video shows a silhouette of the large feathered creature from Sesame Street: “Big Bird,” Romney says. The announcer moves in for the kill: "Mitt Romney knows it’s not Wall Street you have to worry about, it’s Sesame Street. Mitt Romney. Taking on our enemies, no matter where they nest.

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.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. 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

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

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
