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.

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.

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.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
