Jarrett: Obama to Change
Washington by Spending
More Time Away

PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/29/2012 2:42:41 PM

Senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said that in a second term, President Obama would change Washington by spending even more time away from D.C. “I think everybody grows. Everybody matures. Everybody develops their, you know, their confidence,” Jarrett said of the first term in an interview airing this morning on MSNBC. “As I think one of the things that he has said upon reflection is that he’s going to spend a lot more time traveling around the country,” she said after a New Hampshire rally. “A day like today is energizing, and the American

Comments:
The co-president speaks. He's not going to get that chance. He's going to have all the free time in the world. That woman is so offensive.

Well then, a nice long vacation away would seem to be in order, since he takes no responsibility, he can do without the authority, too.

Goodbye, Mr. pResident. Good riddance.

Well, he won't be campaigning any more, so just what will he be doing as he travels around the country? Trying to see how many golf courses he can play? Well, once he retires on Jan. 21, 2013, he can play as much golf as he wants. Just go away and take that evil VJ with you. Oh, and Valerie, too.

Right, starting in January that would be all of it. Most worried is Valarie Jarrett because she will have to go from her big-time scamming in DC back to the smaller scale corruptions in Chicago.

A modest proposal:

I suggest that Valerie Jarrett... who has become very wealthy because of her connections to Obama...tell him that he will be able to spend a whole lot of time away from D.C. when my vote next Tuesday..and the votes of millions and millions of others tell him "you're FIRED."

Then aloha Mr. Soon To Be ExpPresident..enjoy Hawaii.. while your lovely wife nags you about losing all the free stuff and staff she has had for these past four years,

They want the rich to become poorer, but all should realize that means the poor will be poorer. These people have "there goodies in private accounts off shore", but you, the average are at risk. So Obama will jet around and leave the busines of Washinton to idiots like Valerie Jerret.

Say goodbye, Obama! You can spend your time in Hawaii, if they still want to claim you. The less we see of Obama, the better, for we, without him, will unite to become the United States of America that we were before he was sold to US by the liberal media. They are the next ones to lose their power!

Thank God for the Internet and Talk Radio, where we citizens are able to respond and share our knowledge, knowing that together we are strong and able to prosper as we know in Whom we believe and disallow anyone that seeks power over a concern for their fellowman.

Obama, you failed! You will not be remembered as the great President you, in your own mind, thought you were.

What's different about this? He's never there working anyway because he doesn't know what to do about anything. Flying around is nothing but a time killer. Romney/Ryan will put in 16 hour days fixing his screw ups.

Obama made it more worthwhile to be on welfare so he'll get those votes.

White House Releases New Obama
Phone Photo in Ukraine Crisis
PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/8/2014 9:58:23 PM     Post Reply
Following up last weekend’s official White House photo of President Obama talking on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the administration today released another phone photo, this one of a conversation with French President Francois Hollande. This one comes from Key Largo, Fla., where Obama is spending the weekend before returning to Washington to host a reception Monday for the 2012 and 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Champions before moving on to fundraising events Tuesday. “The President welcomed the strong, unified stance of the United States and the European Union regarding Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, including

While IRS officials were targeting Tea Party groups for special scrutiny of their 501(c)3 tax exempt applications, the IRS also hired a policeman who had been prosecuted by the Justice Department — and convicted in federal court — of using his access to the FBI’s NCIC system to tip off a terror suspect about the bureau’s surveillance. The leak wrecked a major terror investigation. He is still at the IRS. Weiss Russell (he has changed his name from “Weiss Rasool,” the name under which he was convicted), is currently employed as a financial management analyst in the IRS Deputy Chief Financial Officer’s

Two days after a shocking defeat, liberals are still grousing about the Senate spiking the nomination of former NAACP Legal Fund Director Debo Adegbile to be head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. What really burns them up is not just that Republicans successfully filibustered one of President Obama’s choices for a government post but that six Democrats joined with them. But rather than take responsibility for putting forward a controversial figure who was sure to provoke bitter opposition from both sides of the aisle, liberals are reverting to form by blaming their defeat on conservative demagoguery and racism.

Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments. “Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol. Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by. Agents can’t use guns against

The IRS still has not responded to allegations from a former Center for American Progress (CAP) employee that the left-wing think tank coordinates on editorial content with the White House — revelations that could threaten the organization’s nonprofit status. Former ThinkProgress reporter Zaid Jilani wrote a piece this week detailing his experiences working for the liberal blog, which is run by CAP’s 501(c)(4) nonprofit Action Fund, the advocacy arm of White House counselor John Podesta’s think tank. “When I started working at ThinkProgress at the Center for American Progress Action Fund in 2009, I did so because it was an

WASHINGTON — In late December, President Barack Obama´s new legislative affairs team sent him more than a dozen recommendations for ways to improve his strained relations with Capitol Hill. The president responded with a few ideas of his own, including a request for more social events with lawmakers at the White House. It was a surprising suggestion from a president who has done little socializing with lawmakers of either party and has dismissed the notion that sharing a cocktail or a meal with members of Congress is a prescription for easing Washington gridlock. But within weeks, there Obama was, mingling

A national union that represents 300,000 low-wage hospitality workers charges in a new report that Obamacare will slam wages, cut hours, limit access to health insurance and worsen the very “income equality” President Obama says he is campaigning to fix. “Only in Washington could asking the bottom of the middle class to finance health care for the poorest families be seen as reducing inequality,” said the report from Unite Here. “Without smart fixes, the ACA threatens the middle class with higher premiums, loss of hours, and a shift to part-time work and less comprehensive coverage,” said the report, titled, “The

Speaking to co-hosts Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K.

Cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal´s champion, Debo Adegbile, President Obama´s defeated pick to be assistant attorney general for the civil rights division at the Department of Justice, is not the only radical on President Obama´s wish list.

President Obama golfed on Saturday with former NBA player Alonzo Mourning and sportscaster Ahmad Rashad after discussing the military tensions in Ukraine with foreign leaders. The commander-in-chief skipped out of Washington this weekend to vacation with his family in Key Largo, Fla. The White House said Obama placed calls to leaders in countries such as Britain, France, Italy, Lithuania, Latvian and Estonia before he hit the links. Obama and the sports figures were joined by Cyrus Walker, who is the cousin of White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. The president has teamed up with Mourning during several recent trips to Florida.

Zaid Jilani, a former blogger with the left-wing think tank Center for American Progress, explained this week how the Obama administration frequently tries to censor the progressive organization’s content when it departs from the White House’s agenda. Jiliani was reacting to two on-air protests by journalists opposed to Russia’s invasion of southern Ukraine. The two worked for Russia Today (RT) — an English-speaking media outlet funded directly by Moscow — and felt their bosses were trying to censor their opinions. In a post titled, ”How Working in Washington Taught Me We’re All A Little Like RT America,” Jilani explained how

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) facetiously recalled “Presidents” Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney to make a point about how Republicans need to “stand for principle” in order to win big elections. Today, Sen. McCain fired back at Cruz during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Sarah Palin, the tea-party-darling former Alaska governor who ran for vice president in 2008, is leaving the door open for a president run in 2016. ´It depends on what it is that Americans really, really want in a candidate,´ Palin said Friday night. ´If they want a fighter, if they want someone who can so respect our exceptionalism, everything that makes America great, the promise of America. And if we don´t find that, then I would run.´ [Snip] Asked who her favorite presidential hopefuls are so far, she singled out Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul while

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage. (snip) So when did Ann´s and Obama Sr.´s "whatever happened happened fast" wedding happen? For no apparent reason, confusion abounds among Obama´s biographers over the wedding date:

During the hour-long phone call, President Obama urged Russian forces to return to their bases.

The President called for an agreement which would protect the interests of both Ukrainians and ethnic Russians living in Ukraine. This was the second phone call between the two leaders in a

The millionaire attorney funding a ‘spoiled’ cheerleader’s lawsuit against her own parents let the teenager drink in his house, threw ‘alcoholic parties’ and apparently allowed her to have her first drop of booze, according to court documents. When Rachel Canning was a 15-year-old freshman she got so drunk on vodka at Jon Inglesino’s home that she was sick all over the sidewalk and into a garbage can after her dad Sean picked her up for a basketball game. And according to the Canning family, Inglesino’s wife Amy gave Rachel and her friends wine coolers in the back of a limo

Another former SEAL, Jeffrey Reynolds, was found alongside him, also dead from a suspected drug

New York City lefty Mayor Bill de Blasio was elected in a landslide with more than 73 percent of the vote last November. Yet after only two months on the job, his approval rating has been cut nearly in half, with only 39 percent of city voters expressing approval of the job he has done so far. (Snip) But this is a brutal start. For a worst-case scenario, consider the rapid slide of President François Hollande—another far-left candidate who swept into office in a landslide. He saw his approval rating crater within months of taking office; it now sits at
