With no deal,
Obama heads to Hawaii

Washington Post, by David Nakamura

Original Article

Posted By:grayjay, 12/21/2012 8:38:58 PM

With financial negotiations all but halted, President Obama was headed out of Washington on Friday evening for his annual winter vacation in Hawaii. Obama is likely to have a short trip this year; aides said he is scheduled to return Wednesday, a day after Christmas, to resume discussions with congressional leaders on how to avert the fiscal cliff. “Merry Christmas – because we didn’t get this done, I’ll see you next week,” Obama said after telling reporters he still had hope of striking a deal to prevent taxes from rising on the middle class next year.

Comments:
So, while we taxpayers/business people are in a total quandry about tax planning, Obama and all the other idiots in Washington head home for the holidays. The market only dropped 121 points today, more sure to follow. It only costs a few million for Obama to jet off to Hawaii today, returning Wednesday, and I´m sure going back to Hawaii a few days later. Hey, it´s all free! It´s great to be King.

Notice the article states, `Obama and his family are scheduled to rent a resort on Kailua, on the island of Oahu, as they have done each year of his presidency`. This sentence was written to imply the Obama`s are actually paying for their own vacation. Aaaaahahaha

Most Presidents go home for vacation. Obama owns a house in Chicago. Has he actually ever gone there? Has he ever even set foot in that house?

Too good for Camp David. These folks look out for number one like real capitalists, but they´re nonprofit tycoons.
In a way this is getting very enjoyable. King Barry has to fly back from Hawaii on Wednesday? Ooh he´s gonna be mad. I think we should go over the cliff just to spite him, and gun control is a silly loser. Get the popcorn out.

Just how often have these gay-blades taken vacations in Hawaii as private citizens without the trappings/money of the white-house?

Don´t they have a house in Chicago they could go to? Or is that off bounds for some reason? You would think they would go ´´home´´ for Christmas like most people ....unless they don´t ´´do´´Christmas. Where´s their family? I´m sure Militant Michelle has some kind of family she might want to see...or maybe they don´t want to see her....or maybe they are ALL being flown to the Island at our expense...kind of like that India trip, eh? Truly a bunch of gadflies!!!!!

I don´t begrudge the president a Christmas vacation, but I suspect this will be the first of many vacations come the new year.
Several posters have mentioned that The Won has a home in Chicago. Well, you don´t expect him to go there do you? The weather is so cold and uncomfortable.

May you live in interesting times, is the ancient Chinese curse. Well, i feel like I´m living in some sort of black comedy. When Clinton would get away with murder, I´d say, "can you imagine a Republican President getting away with this?" But now? I mean, not even Clinton could get away with this. All the rules were changed for Obama. For him, or maybe I should write, for Him, there are no rules.

Given the daily murder count in zippy´s old ´community´, I´m betting that the SS won´t let him go to his own house in Chi-town, not that he´d want too anyway. Hawaii is so much more pleasant and elitist.

At least the maintanence people at the WH will maybe get to enjoy those 54 Christmas trees. Bet there isn´t one in the mansion we´re renting in Hawaii, but there are probably plenty of prayer rugs.

He shouldn´t return with the idea that he must´lead´. He should return with the idea that he should negotiate as the head of one of the three co-equal branches of federal government.

If one of us was gifted with a four million buck Christmas we´d have to report it and pay taxes on it. Same with entertainment, ladies and lords and ladies in waiting, private schooling, etc. maybe it is time to re evaluate how our president lives. America was founded to eliminate the corrupt royals of Europe, but politicians have created one of their own right under our noses.

Of course. Zero´s forte is to do his usual nothing in a timely manner, so that a "crisis" forms because of some real or contrived deadline, then he offers nothing, while waiting for his opponent to come up with a plan to demonize. And guess who comes along to try to kick the football every time. Then the Pubbies come up with some God-awful last minute compromise, and America loses again. Lather rinse repeat.

Zero got exactly what he wanted so far. No deal, and the media trashing the party that actually addresses the issues involved. He also got the trip he wanted, going to Hawaii without the Mooch, and returning without her, similar to all their vacations. Now he gets to return to the media fabrication that he is giving up his vacation to lead this nation in a time of crisis, and he will whine it to the hilt. Until he gets back, Boehner should bring an empty chair to every press conference, and periodically look at it and ask for Zero´s opinion.

# 3 Obama promised during the campaign of 2008
that he would go back to his Rezko home in Chicago every 6 weeks .
This was to give the illusion that he was a regular guy.
During the first two years, they went back more often than they do now.
Memorial Day 2010 , Barry did not go to Arlington National Cemetery for the traditional wreath laying ceremony.
Instead , he went back to his Chicago home for a birthday bash with Reggie Love .
The Secret Service was photographed walking Bo at night so the two love birds could have some privacy.
I believe Michelle was on another grand tour of the world on our dime.
The tabloids at the checkouts are now saying it will cost us $300,00 for a separate aircraft just to fly out her clothes to Hawaii.
Their non stop luxurious vacations and top shelf parties the next four years are going to make our heads spin ,
our stomachs roil and our blood pressure skyrocket.
We ain´t seen nothing, yet.

Perhaps a deal could include the Obama´ spend every vacation in Kenya. They would feel so at home among around the 90% population with skin tones from dark brown to black and never have to face racists or need 10 t0 20 vehicles in a motorcade. Oh to be just one of the crowd could create such freedom.

He wants to go over the cliff. That way He will have a ready excuse for the coming recession that will really be caused by the policies of His socialist party. But He will blame the republicans and the cliff, and the leftist press whores will eagerly go along with the sham.

The White House systematically delayed enacting a series of rules on the environment, worker safety and health care to prevent them from becoming points of contention before the 2012 election, according to documents and interviews with current and former administration officials. Some agency officials were instructed to hold off submitting proposals to the White House for up to a year to ensure that they would not be issued before voters went to the polls, the current and former officials said.

The Obama administration is engaged in a broad push to make more home loans available to people with weaker credit, an effort that officials say will help power the economic recovery but that skeptics say could open the door to the risky lending that caused the housing crash in the first place. President Obama’s economic advisers and outside experts say the nation’s much-celebrated housing rebound is leaving too many people behind, including young people looking to buy their first homes and individuals with credit records weakened by the recession.

PALM CITY, Fla. – President Obama on Sunday displayed the freedom that comes with not having another election ahead of him, golfing with Tiger Woods in an enclave of privilege here along Florida’s blustery Atlantic coast. Since his reelection in November, Obama has been talking about the perils facing America’s middle class, highlighted in his State of the Union address last week. On Friday he visited a public high school in his hometown of Chicago, where he spoke in personal terms about the need to reduce gun violence and create jobs in the country’s troubled urban areas.

President Obama summoned congressional leaders to a Friday summit at the White House in a last-ditch effort to protect taxpayers, unemployed workers and the fragile U.S. recovery from severe austerity measures set to hit in just four days. Also Thursday, House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) announced that he would call the House back into session this weekend. And in perhaps the most significant development, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for the first time was engaged directly in talks with the White House. He signaled an interest in cutting a deal.

With financial negotiations all but halted, President Obama was headed out of Washington on Friday evening for his annual winter vacation in Hawaii. Obama is likely to have a short trip this year; aides said he is scheduled to return Wednesday, a day after Christmas, to resume discussions with congressional leaders on how to avert the fiscal cliff. “Merry Christmas – because we didn’t get this done, I’ll see you next week,” Obama said after telling reporters he still had hope of striking a deal to prevent taxes from rising on the middle class next year.

BAGHDAD — A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said.

But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.

Every year, prior to Valentine’s Day, the Vermont Teddy Bear Co. runs ads advising guys that the most romantic thing in the world – the best gift a love-struck guy can give his girl – is a teddy bear. This year’s ad features “Big Hunka Love Bear.” Big Hunka is 4½ feet tall, and the company says he’s “stuffed with more than enough love to last a lifetime.” Hey, giving your girl a cute little teddy bear for Valentine’s Day could be a sweet thing to do. But, it’s the way these ads are put together that cause the creep-out: the girl

Powerful winds in the Pacific Ocean, which have driven surface heat deep underwater, could be the reason behind the current ‘pause’ in global warming. This is according to a joint Australian and U.S. study which has looked at why there has been a slowdown in the planet’s global average surface temperature over the past decade. Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere. Last year, scientists on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said the pace of

From its inception, the strategy behind the Obama administration’s implementation of ObamaCare has been simple: to frontload the benefits and postpone the pain and costs of this massive government intrusion into the private sector for as long as possible. This deceitful approach enabled President Obama run for reelection in 2012 on the spurious promise of extending insurance coverage to the poor and those with pre-existing conditions without being held accountable for the problems with the law that would only become apparent in his second term. Over the course of the last year, as the president’s signature accomplishment debuted with a

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

One guest thought the cost of the dress was close to $10,000. "Well, first of all, I love the dress on her because I think it´s so elegant and so simple. I mean, that shape is what we call the princess shape. It´s got that sort of poof at the bottom that´s very sort of billowy at the same time. It´s strapless. I think we want to call that French blue, maybe," said a guest. "Some people might call it periwinkle and it´s got this sort of jet bodice and everything, and I think it´s realy pretty.
