Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 12/22/2012 9:57:44 AM

THE PRESIDENT: Hi everybody. This weekend, as you gather with family and friends, Michelle and I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays. THE FIRST LADY: We both love this time of year. And there’s nothing quite like celebrating the holidays at the White House. It’s an incredible experience and one that we try to share with as many folks as possible. This month, more than 90,000 people have come through the White House.

FTA: "...And there’s nothing quite like celebrating the holidays at the White House…."

A suggestion…why not do that!? After all, you have 54 trees and a battalion of chefs.

Create a "Christmas" environment in the WH..Snap some pictures..The Hop on AF-1 and fly to Hawaii for 3 or 4 weeks.
When you come back in late January..all the WH Staff has taken down and packed up the "Christmas" Stuff, and it is back to their Secular Progressive Life Style.

"It´s time to celebrate the birth of Christ."

The first POTUS in American History to openly advocate unlimited abortion, to include partial birth abortion and infanticide, uttering these words, during this Holiest of Seasons, have a hollow ring to them and are insulting, I am sure, to millions of believers throughout the globe.

This incompetent bafoon takes pleasure in raising his middle finger to Americans (especially "white folks"), which I believe metaphorically he is doing with placing his feet on the people´s desk.

He has no class, no honor, no shame and no clue.

Well, Mizzuz Stinky, if "there’s nothing quite like celebrating the holidays at the White House," why are you spending FOUR MILLION DOLLARS of taxpayer money on Christmas in Hawaii? $4,000,000 of taxpayer money. Because you´re a parasite with an out-of-control sense of entitlement, that´s why.

I had to cut back on spending for Christmas this year. I´m lucky to have a job, but employment insecurity is at a maximum at my company. The unemployment rate for my three siblings and me is 50%.

"a time to celebrate the birth of Christ. To reflect on His life and learn from His example."

Would he have Jesus Christ in mind there, or perhaps Barry Christ?

Worth a reminder that Islam holds Jesus (they call him "Isa", if I´m not mistaken) as a major prophet, second to Mohammed, and as such honor his birth (even while they deny his identity as begotten Son). So TelePrompTer-in-Chief´s "Merry Christmas" and reference to "the birth of Christ" aren´t necessarily tacit admissions of Christian faith, by any stretch of the imagination...

When he says that these attributes of faith are the same for all faiths, he is making it clear there is no reason at all to be a Christian since everyone is the same, blah blah blah.

Actually, no other religion believes in a virgin birth or a real resurrection, or a second coming. But then, I doubt very much if he does either.

As President, many of his actions aren´t Christian. But he will claim they are because, don´t forget, liberalism is all about saying. Just say it and it will be - that´s how liberals operate.

The art of stringing words together to create an impression is basically the art of liberalism. Keep in mind that the masses operate on the basis of pictures and not thought when it comes to politics. All that the politician needs to do is to create a picture and he´s sucked in the masses.

Perhaps you´ve heard with echoes of Nazi Germany annexing its neighbors with no convincing Allied response, Russian troops have taken effective control of eastern Ukraine. Here´s how President Barack Obama responded: He telephoned Russian President Vladimir Putin. Obama expressed "deep concern" over Russia´s moves, suggested Putin´s troops leave and warned the occupation "would negatively impact Russia’s standing in the international community." [Snip] Here´s how Col. Putin responded to Obama´s words of warning: He sent more Russian troops into Crimea.

Hi, I’m Ann Wagner. It’s truly an honor to represent the heartland of our country in St. Louis, Missouri, as a member of the United States Congress. Growing up working in my parents’ carpet store, my daddy used to tell me that your word is your bond. That when your bond is broken; your trust is broken. (Scroll down for video of these full remarks.) Unfortunately, President Obama has broken that bond with the American people, and they no longer can trust his word.

Hi everybody. In my State of the Union Address, I said that the best measure of opportunity is access to a good job. And after the worst recession of our lifetimes, our businesses have created eight and a half million new jobs in the last four years. But we need to do more to make America a magnet for good jobs for the future. And in this year of action, where Congress won’t do that, I will do whatever I can to expand opportunity for more Americans. This week, I took two actions to attract new jobs to America — jobs in American manufacturing, and jobs rebuilding America’s infrastructure.

Contrary to popular conception about porky Americans, there is some good news today for the country´s toddlers (and their parents) as they begin the journey as the next generation of teens, then adults: A new federal study finds a significant drop in obesity in children between the ages of two and five. A 43% decrease, to be exact. [Snip] The obesity decline among U.S. pre-schoolers is the first optimistic sign in such a major nationwide study. And Obama’s White House was quick to hail Mrs. Obama.

You may have seen news reports about Americans tiring of the war in Afghanistan, now our nation´s longest ever. Not surprising. What is surprising -- and hasn´t been widely noted -- is that it´s taken so long for a U.S. population famously addicted to instant gratification to tire of a deadly war that has so far claimed the lives of 2,313 countrymen and women. In previous wars since 1950 it´s been a mere matter of months before Americans were doubting the reasons for combat.

Hi, I’m Tom Cotton. I’m proud to represent the people of Arkansas in Congress. [Snip] Arkansans, like most Americans, have had their grit tested over the last several years through a financial collapse, recession, and a stagnant, jobless recovery. Barack Obama’s policies aren’t solving these problems — they’re causing the problem. President Obama’s policies spend too much money — they’ve irresponsibly added trillions of dollars to our national debt. The debt slows economic growth today and it places an immoral burden on our kids and grandkids.

Oh, geez. Here we go again.

Seriously? After 1,856 days in office, this naive yokel, who promised he´d charm the world into loving America again, still cannot resist the temptation to utter empty threats to foreign leaders, threats that they know very well he has absolutely no intention of fulfilling, threats that diminish any surviving U.S. clout abroad.

Some people think Monday´s national holiday had something to do with commemorating the birthdays of two of the country´s greatest presidents, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Silly people. Monday was actually the fifth birthday of the stimulus spending bill signed by one of the country´s least great presidents, Barack Hussein Obama. That was back in 2009 when a billion dollars seemed like a lot of money. [Snip] The spending measure, Obama promised, was destined to create millions of new jobs and end one of the most frightening economic recessions in modern history.

Good morning. Few promises are more sacred than the ones we make to older Americans. Protecting the dignity and the security our seniors have earned is a commitment that spans generations and party lines. For example, during President Obama´s health care speech to Congress in the fall of 2009, he spoke directly to older Americans. “These steps,” he said, “will ensure that you — America’s seniors — get the benefits you´ve been promised.” Then, during a telephone town hall with seniors from around the country, he said he wanted to respond to what he called “hysterical claims” about his plan. “Here’s the truth..." he said,

As John noted below, President Obama spent an hour and a half on the telephone with Vladimir Putin discussing the Russian invasion of Ukraine. What was the conversation like? We can probably get a good sense of it by considering the account of President Bush’s conversations with Putin set forth by Peter Baker in his excellent book about the Bush presidency, Days of Fire. It’s well known that Bush and Putin got on well at first. But when the relationship soured, Bush became exasperated by his talks with the Russian bully. Putin seemed to delight in debating Bush.

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he
