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.
With the Parasites in the WH..You have to watch what they Do NOT say. 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.
MAYBE THE CRAPWEASEL´S WILL GET NEW 747´S (Af-1&2)For their next 4 years...Cause the Two Planes they have now are gonna be due for some serious overhauls...
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.
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...
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.
We´re afraid that you, like us, may have missed a couple of important things. So much was going on last week what with the looming end of the financial world, as Barack Obama described it. Having presided over a pioneering credit downgrade, he didn´t want to also preside over the United States´ first partial default. [Snip] While we were obsessing over the debt limit/government closure last week, the Washington Post published another Edward Snowden revelation to little alarm. The NSA is now collecting hundreds of millions of contact lists from personal email accounts and IM accounts all over the world,
Hello, I’m Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli. Today, our nation and the Commonwealth of Virginia face tremendous challenges. Citizens are seeking leaders who are willing to speak out and stand up for our first principles and take on a federal government that is out of control, eating away our liberty and crushing opportunity. This gross government overreach is best exemplified in the so-called Affordable Care Act. ObamaCare represents one of the largest and most reckless expansions of government in the more than 200-year history of our nation.
Hi everybody. This week, because Democrats and responsible Republicans came together, the government was reopened, and the threat of default was removed from our economy. There’s been a lot of discussion lately of the politics of this shutdown. But the truth is, there were no winners in this. At a time when our economy needs more growth and more jobs, the manufactured crises of these last few weeks actually harmed jobs and growth. And it’s understandable that your frustration with what goes on in Washington has never been higher.
If we could somehow tap into Barack Obama´s vast reservoir of cynicism, this country might possibly achieve some of his green energy blather. The Phony Uniter spent the last several weeks implying Republicans are extremists like -- hmm, what other global group do Americans commonly associate with extremists? The GOP, he suggests, is a party captive to ideological crazies determined to send the global economy into a fatal tailspin sucking prosperity from the lives and dreams of billions just to thwart Obama´s not-so-grand healthcare scheme. [Snip] Wait ‘til you see who Obama blames now.
According to the nation’s highest-ranking spectator, President Obama, the fiscal crisis was all about Congress. "I will not negotiate over whether or not America keeps its word and meets its obligations." – Barack Obama “The leaders up in Congress, they can work through whatever processes they want. But the bottom line is either you´re having good-faith negotiations in which there´s give and take, or you´re not.” – Barack Obama.
Last month, the Army released a remarkable video. It’s from the combat helmet cameras of a Medevac helicopter crew in Afghanistan. [Snip] As the helicopter touches down by a remote village, you see, out of a cloud of dust, an American soldier. He’s without his helmet, standing in the open, exposing himself to enemy fire, standing watch over a severely wounded soldier. He carries that wounded soldier to the helicopter, places him inside. And then, amidst the whipping wind and roar of the helicopter blades, he leans in and kisses the wounded soldier on the head.
The good news is we have endured 1,729 days of this guy. The bad news is there are still 1,193 left. His pettiness and lack of leadership helped produce and prolong a record duration of high unemployment, the worst economic ´recovery´ in decades, record deficits, record national debt, a wasted trillion dollars in stimulus, record youth and black employment hardships, untold lies about the unfolding disaster called ObamaCare and Benghazi and so many other things. The country´s latest fiscal crisis continues this week [Snip] It didn´t have to be this way.
Fallon: Joe Biden canceled a speech at a Democratic fundraiser the other night because of the partial government shutdown. Then it got awkward. When the committee announced Biden wasn´t coming, attendees doubled their donations. Fallon: A new study says 9% of Americans have considered giving up their U.S. citizenship. It’s gotten so bad that even Obama said, "Are you sure I wasn´t born in Kenya?" Fallon: Things aren't exactly going smoothly for the Olympics over in Russia. In fact, yesterday President Vladimir Putin lit the Olympic torch in a ceremony and just minutes later a gust of wind
Public opinion polls, the experts always tell us, are merely snapshots of American opinion at a moment in time. OK. So, let´s pull together a whole bunch of snapshots and arrange them in an album. See if collectively they perhaps tell us a larger story about the condition of America and Americans 1,724 days into President Obama´s reign of error: Six out of ten Americans now believe their federal government has become too powerful. And that’s just the beginning.
It sure looked like a news conference. There was President Obama standing at the White House Briefing Room podium while, seated in front of him was the usual array of media representatives, 12 of whom got to ask questions Tuesday afternoon. But it wasn´t a news conference. A news conference contains news, something we did not know before. None of the nearly 10,000 words Obama uttered during those 66 minutes were new. He´s all for talking, just not negotiating. [Snip] But what interested us in this Obama non-news news conference was what was not said.
This isn´t another column about the shutdown -- of the American government. It’s about the attempted shutdown of Iran´s economy in a bank-shot bid by President Obama and allies to stop Iran´s nuclear weapons development, which its new president denies having, which no one really believes. The stakes are high since Iran is the region´s major exporter of terrorism. It could provide a nuclear weapon to such groups. Iran´s aggressive acquisition of a weapon of mass destruction would likely set off a regional arms race. And it´s the latest test of Obama´s soft diplomacy. [Snip] In fact, a new study
Conan: Our government will be shutting down this week. So, folks, get ready for absolutely no noticeable difference. Leno: We´ve had 17 government shutdowns since 1976. The longest was those four years during Jimmy Carter´s presidency. Conan: Today was the Obamas’ 21st wedding anniversary. Unfortunately, the President forgot. So, tonight he’ll experience a different kind of “shutdown.” Leno: Tonight at midnight all non-essential White House personnel will be sent on leave. So, more bad news for Joe Biden.
WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama is not an overtly religious man. He and his family rarely attend church, and he almost never elaborates in public about his own relationship to his Christian faith. But away from the public eye, advisers say, the president has carefully nurtured a sense of spirituality that has served as a grounding mechanism during turbulent times, when the obstacles to governing a deeply divided nation seem nearly insurmountable. Every year on Aug. 4, the president´s birthday, Obama convenes a group of pastors by phone to receive their prayers for him for the year to come. During the
The Affordable Care Act´s botched rollout has stunned its media cheering section, and it even seems to have surprised the law´s architects. The problems run much deeper than even critics expected, and whatever federal officials, White House aides and outside contractors are doing to fix them isn´t working. But who knows? Omerta is the word of the day as the Obama Administration withholds information from the public. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is even refusing to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee in a hearing this coming Thursday. HHS claims she has scheduling conflicts, but we hope
An unnamed Obama administration official claimed that the White House feared GOP subpoenas would slow their work on the Obamacare website, leading to keeping its design in-house with "trusted campaign tech experts" that seemed to have spectacularly failed at creating a successful commerce website. In a Politico article lamenting the second week of failed performance of Healthcare.gov, the Obamacare insurance website, the unnamed official attempts to explain why the whole thing has been such a dismal failure: it´s the Republican´s fault. "Facing such intense opposition from congressional Republicans," Politico wrote, "the administration was in a bunker mentality as it built the enrollment
This is not the column about the Obamacare rollout I expected to write. If you had told me, months ago, that weeks after the health care law’s coverage expansion went into effect I would be writing about the problems its launch had exposed, I would have assumed I’d be writing about rate shock, rising premiums and the disappearance of many cheap insurance plans — basically, all the problems conservatives have worried will make Obamacare a ruinously expensive failure if they play out as we fear they might. I may be writing about those issues soon enough. But for now there
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said he might not be good at calculus, but he knows how to legislate. Reid told The Huffington Post that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is smart, but he can’t outmaneuver the 26-year veteran in the halls of Congress. “He might be able to work a calculus problem better than I can,” Reid said Thursday. “But he can´t legislate better than I can." Reid and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) are credited with brokering the deal that ended the government shutdown. Reid said the House’s decision to go along with a deal to end
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign spokeswoman Allison Moore attacked the Senate Conservatives Fund for endorsing McConnell’s primary challenger Matt Bevin on Friday. “Matt Bevin now has the dubious honor of standing with a self-serving D.C. fundraising group that made its name by recruiting and promoting unelectable candidates that ensured Barack Obama a majority in the Senate,” Moore said in a statement to the Washington Post. “They clearly care less about Kentuckians than they do about their reputation for supporting laughably bad candidates. Now they can add a New England bailout recipient who claims he went to MIT to their
Of all the bitter fruit of the Barack Obama disaster, the most bitter may be the sense of hopelessness that has descended on Americans, especially the young. Has there ever been anything like it in our history? Even on the eve of the Civil War, was there this much pessimism about our future? Gallup wasn’t around in those days, but I wonder. For a simple measure of how the Obama administration has crushed any sense of hopefulness in the American people, take a look at the survey that Rasmussen Reports does periodically on whether America’s best days are behind her,
The British multinational in charge of processing Obamacare paper applications received a hefty contract boost just days before Healthcare.gov’s disastrous roll-out, a sign that the Obama administration may have expected serious problems with the website.The Business of Federal Technology (FCW) reports that on Sept. 26, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) increased their planned payout to Serco’s U.S. subsidiary by 75 percent, adding an extra $87 million to the $114 million promised for processing initial Obamacare enrollment applications.The contract documents do not explain the last-minute infusion of federal dollars, and neither Serco nor CMS would disclose why the
Here’s a question for conservatives and Republicans: Going into the 2012 Election Day, or even in the last few days before Election Day, did you think Mitt Romney was going to win? A couple of months ago, did you think the strategy of threatening to shut down the government or prevent raising the debt ceiling, to force the outright repeal or defunding of Obamacare, would really work? Romney lost by 4,967,508 votes, 126 Electoral College votes, and 3.85 percentage points. That’s not very close. Obamacare isn’t going to be repealed this year, and it’s not going to be defunded. So the
During an interview for “This Week,” former Republican Florida Gov. Jeb Bush encouraged Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz – who told ABC News that he would do “anything” to stop Obamacare – to come up with an alternative and show some restraint if his aim was to repeal the president’s signature healthcare law. “I think the best way to repeal Obamacare is to have an alternative; we never hear the alternative...we could do this in a much lower cost with improved quality based on our principles, free market principles...and two, show how Obamacare, flawed to its core, doesn’t work,” Bush
Members of Congress and their staffs are on red alert tonight for a CBS 60 Minutes investigation by veteran CBS reporter Steve Kroft and Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President and Breitbart News editor Peter Schweizer exposing how lawmakers convert campaign donations into lavish lifestyle upgrades for themselves and their family members. Sources say top CBS executives thought the report was so explosive that they made it the show’s lead story and delayed airing it for another week in order to capture tonight’s much larger NFL-viewing audience. The report features selected revelations from Schweizer’s forthcoming book, Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your
The word “appropriate” is one of the better homonyms in the English language. As an adjective, it is defined as “suitable or proper in the circumstances,” while as a verb appropriate means “to take something for one’s own use, typically without the owner’s permission.” Which brings us to the Washington Redskins. Currently the Redskins are more than a disappointing NFC East franchise; they are a national litmus test. The franchise has in recent months taken a lot of heat – and not Miami Heat – because its name is a racial slur. Which - and we might as well deal with this
