Despite ´cliff,´ preparations on
for Obama Hawaii vacation

Washington Times [DC], by Susan Crabtree

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/30/2012 7:27:59 PM

The prospect of pitching over the federal "fiscal cliff" isn´t stopping the White House from moving forward with President Obama´s year-end Hawaii vacation plans.Even as Republicans and Democrats report minimal progress so far in talks to meet a deadline to avoid sharp tax hikes and spending cuts, the White House was moving forward with the first family´s and friends´ $4 million vacation to Mr. Obama´s native state. Residents living near the beachfront homes in Kailua where President Obama has vacationed every year since 2008 received alerts this week about the restrictions and expected travel disruptions

Any of his liberal pals think it´s cool Barry went to play with Tinker Toys today, instead of working with congress?

Let´s see... Since the election, Obama has taken a week vaca to Asia, 2 trips for campaign stops to motivate his civilian army & met with Boehner for 25 minutes.

GOP needs to take oout a full page ad, describing a bill passed in the house to stop fiscal cliff, so Amerikans know they tried... then leave DC the same day Obama does.

What if all of the Pubbies headed to Hawaii (on their own dime of course) at the same time as the president? What would he think if they held a little session of Congress there on Oahu for a couple of days?

Pity the poor bride and groom on their honeymoon at the same time he is there or the couple that saved ten years for the big vacation in Hawaii.

How many people get to take their extended family and friends on vacay courtesy of taxpayers ?

Obama genuinely doesn´t care about any cliff. He desires this chaos and looks at it as an opportunity to further weaken America, while gaining more control and power over the people. Not all but many of the Obama voters will very soon be regretting how they voted.

I presume our Royal Family is, as usual, depending on other people to actually do the work while they while away their days in leisurely pursuits at our expense.

It is crystal clear that the Obama´s don´t really care about this "fiscal cliff", where hidden taxes will wipe a good percentage of everyone´s remaining money out of their bank accounts and into the union and government pension coffers.

Our Royal Family behave as though they expect to be here forever, and if our worst nightmares come true, they just might be.

You would think that this year of all years that Obama would decide to go home to Chicago or stay in the White House for Christmas since the country is in such dire straits. The fact that he would choose to put the burden for an expensive vacation on the back of the taxpayer says a lot about his character. Why lead by example when you can enjoy a luxurious vaycay on someone else´s dime? This kind of behavior will continue when we go over the fiscal cliff and hit rock bottom. After all, he and wifey are entitled to as much taxpayer money as they can get. This mindset is the same in the ghetto or in the White House. It´s reparations, baby!

It is time for the GOP to walk away from the deal on the table and let the country go over the fiscal cliff. Obama and the Democrats won the election - let them figure it out. Let the taxes increase. Let the spending cuts go through. Do not vote for any more debt ceiling increases. Let the economy go into recession. Take the pain and the blame now. Screw this fraudulent evil doer who is a son of Lucifer.

I hate to keep pointing it out, but let´s get used to it. For those of us who voted on November 6th and marked the box for Romney, atta boys/girls. Those who could not get off their behinds and vote because of that individualism statement they had to make by sitting out, good job...real slick. Not every day the incumbent president gets 8 million fewer votes than before..and still winds.

We can expect a steady diet of Obie´s in-your-face politics for another four years and again during Obie´s third term.

Because Boehner can´t politic at Obie´s level, he´s already been defined by Obie on the cliff so that whatever the outcome, Boehner gets blamed. On the other hand Boehner did not get to where he is because he cant survive in politics. Always a chance he can rub Obie´s nose in it.

At the end of the day, big egos control the issue. If you were to ask Obie who it is he thinks he is working for, wanna guess what he´d say?

Think it’s easy? Think fundamentally transforming an entire country is a piece o’ cake? Think again! It’s strenuous work and he deserves some time off from the rigors of destroying our once exceptional nation. Drunk (or high) with power after his November 6 reelection, and with the aid of his ever-present, fawning, corrupt media toadies, he’s going to make all his dictatorial dreams come true. But, first things first. His vacation: Job One!

Let´s just go over the fiscal cliff and get it over with, instead of death by a thousand cuts. People will still keep voting a Republican majority into the House and no more free Obama phones (by the way, who pays the monthly bills on those phones). I hope I´m not doing that.

Everything will then start going to the SCOTUS and we still have a majority there (I think).

$4,000,000 for a vacation? I wish I could scrape enough together to pay my student loans off, freakin´ loan sharks.
My hubby and I wanted to get away for a couple days for our anniversary (2 years!) later this month, but, no, Navy changed his work schedule. My husband works his rear off with little pay and the CIC takes a $4 million vacation in the middle of a crises.
Trust me, it there is a military coup , Obama will be on the receiving end.

Obama has already conveyed his strategy. He will let us fall off the cliff so he can blame the obstructionists Republicans. Its all about image. What the Republicans need to do is to stay in Washington and work. When we drop off the cliff Republicans must run campaign-style ads showing Obama on vacation while they were working. Its a simple strategy…but potentially devastating.

Last night, Chris Hayes face off against Assemblywoman Michele Fiore over the ongoing saga of the Bundy Ranch. Fiore reminds us why we love TV. (Video) Fiore for the win! The Assemblywoman is feisty, unflappable, stays on message, goes at Hayes hard, and comes out looking great. A terrific segment and a good interview by Hayes, amazingly enough. The best part was when she left him flat-footed right at the end after catching him with the slaughter question. Although Hayes salvages the moment for himself with the barbecue crack.

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies awarded about $415,000 in contracts to a license plate-tracking company before Homeland Security leaders dropped a plan for similar work amid privacy complaints. Federal offices such as the Forest Service and the U.S. Air Force´s Air Combat Command chose Livermore, Calif.-based Vigilant Solutions to provide access to license plate databases or tools used to collect plate information, according to government procurement records compiled by Bloomberg. Vigilant, a closely held company, has received such work since 2009. In February, Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security

WASHINGTON— A Western official says the United States is considering deploying about 150 soldiers for military exercises to begin in Poland and Estonia in the next few weeks. The exercises would follow Russia´s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense. The Western official says ground exercises in Poland and Estonia would last about two weeks but that such exercises would continue on a

The 147 people were discovered in a house at the 8900 block of North Bentsen Palm Drive. Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado said he didn’t recall the exact time of the bust, but said it was not too long after the 81 people were found in a brushy area of McAllen northwest of Sprague and North 10th Street about 1 p.m. The 147 people detained

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

Democrats Kristie Holmes and Barbara Mulvaney issued a joint press release earlier this week, accusing the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) of "uninviting" them from a forum on Sunday, April 13 "after first zealously pursuing them."

What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times.

Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
