Unbelievable, the only thing that has prevented President Barack Obama from playing golf was his reelection. The Golfer in Chief has returned.
Looks like we are getting the same old Barack Obama, he is now back on the golf course as the Middle East burns and America is headed off the fiscal cliff. Sadly, the American voters have decided to make the next four years just more of the same. Nothing could prevent Obama from playing golf except his reelection. Not a US economy in crisis, a national debt of +$16 trillion, record number of Americans on food stamps, record low job participation rate of Americans, the impending fiscal cliff and US soldiers paying the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Nope, only his reelection was the most important thing for Obama to prevent him from playing golf. Now he’s back to his old games that the election is over.
President Barack Obama is spending his first Saturday after winning reelection on the golf course. Today’s outing is to the course on Andrews Air Force Base.
“Motorcade arrived at Andrews Air Force Base at 11:01 am after an uneventful ride,” the pool report reads. “President Obama is playing golf with three White House aides: Eugene Kang, Joe Paulson and trip director Marvin Nicholson, according to a White House official. Pool is holding at the Andrews fast food court for the next few hours.”
More Data Not Provided to “We the People” … Obama Administration Hid Record Food Stamp Numbers Until After 2012 Election
Transparency eh? More from the Obama win reelection at any cost … the Reelection Obama campaign worked the “Mushroom” principle perfectly on “We the People” and they fell for it.
The Artful Dodger … Obama’s “Mushroom” principle worked like a charm in getting him reelected president for a second term. Thanks to a corrupt and in the tank media and an apathetic electorate Obama’s “Mushroom” approached won. For those of you who do not know what the “mushroom” principle is, it is keeping the public in the dark and feeding them bull shit. As reported at Zero Hedge, the Obama Administration hid the record number of food stamp recipients from the public for several days until after the election.
All-Time record - 47.1 million Americans were on food stamps last month
While there had been speculation that the BLS may delay the release of its October nonfarm payroll number until after the election, it turned out there was no reason to worry. Perhaps this is because the number, while at stall speed, was not quite as horrible as some had expected (even if the change in average hourly earnings did tumble to new all time lows) and so boosted Obama’s reelection chances. There was, however, another closely tracked number which perhaps is far more indicative of the economic “growth” in the past 4 years, which certainly had a delayed release. The number of course is that showing how many Americans are on foodstamps, and usually is released at the end of the month, or the first day or two of the next month. This time the USDA delayed its release nine days past the semi-official deadline, far past the election, and until Friday night to report August foodstamp data. One glance at the number reveals why: at 47.1 million, this was not only a new all time record, but the monthly increas e of 420,947 from July was the biggest monthly increase in one year.
The Obama administration stonewalled and misrepresented the facts in the attacks on Benghazi and the murder of four Americans. They played four-corners with the CIA Director Petraeus resignation. Jobs data has been questionable. Let us not forget about Iran trying to shoot down one of our drones, that was only reported until after the election as well. All this was pushed off until after the election so that the public would not have all the facts prior to a presidential election. Of course with the aid of a willing and complicit media.
Barack Obama said in his Saturday radio address that the rich should pay more in taxes. No one can say that he did not campaign on such a class-warfare issue. Although, I hardly believe that Obama has a mandate to raise taxes on the rich seeing that the American public voted for the status quo in sending back to Washington DC more gridlock with a Democrat President a Democrat Senate and Republican House. Also, Obama received far fewer votes than he did in 2008 and won reelection by a smaller amoint in 2018 than 2008.
President Barack Obama says he won’t accept a plan to avert the so-called fiscal cliff that doesn’t ask the wealthy to pay more in taxes. In Saturday’s radio and Internet address, Obama says the election showed support for his “balanced” approach and Congress can provide certainty by extending tax cuts for middle-class families.
The White House says Obama would veto any legislation extending tax cuts for families making $250,000 or more. Obama is expected to meet with congressional leaders next week.
For all of those people who think the rich should pay more taxes so that they can get “stuff”. I wonder how they are going to feel when Obama comes after them for raising taxes. For all those sheeple that voted for Obama knowing that he campaigned on raising taxes, wait until you lose something precious to you do to your vote, like you job.
CIA Director David Petraeus Resigns Over ‘Extramarital Affair’ … Petraeus will not Testify Before Congressional Oversight Committees Next week on Benghazi
ALL THE PRESIDENTS CONVENIENT RESIGNING MEN, THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMM …
CIA Director, General David Petraeus has resigned from the Obama Administration over an extramarital affair. What interesting timing. Petraeus was set to testify before Congress next week on the murder of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, in Benghazi, Libya. Are we supposed to believe that the Obama White House did not know of this resignation prior to the 2012 Presidential election? Or was this just another scandal that was hid from the American public and the play clock run out on so that Obama could be reelected? I am sure even the MSM would have asked some questions if Petraeus resigned prior to the election and what that meant for Obama foreign policy.
Just two days after President Obama’s re-election, General David Petraeus, the CIA Director, has resigned from the administration over an extramarital affair. Petraeus was slated to testify before Congress next week on the murder of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, in Benghazi, Libya. Bret Baier of Fox News just tweeted, “With Petraeus’ resignation effective immediately, he will not testify next week & lawmakers are said to be ‘stunned’ by the announcement.”
This is only the latest in a string of groundshaking events demonstrating that the Obama administration hid information vital to the American people during the last days of the 2012 election cycle. The fact that the most respected soldier of his generation, Petraeus, would be leaving the administration during an Obama second term, had to be known by the White House prior to the election. And they said nothing in order to run out the clock. The fact that Attorney General Eric Holder was considering stepping down from the administration had to be known by the White House prior to the election. Meanwhile, during the election cycle, the Obama administration claimed executive privilege in order to shield Holder from questions about Fast and Furious.
Talk about an Obama administration of convenient timing. As LT. COL. RALPH PETERS (VIDEO) stated, the timing is just too perfect for the Obama administration. The Benghazi terror attack on the 9-11 anniversary and now a resignation a week before he was set to testify under oath in front of Congress. Hmm.
As stated at the Weekly Standard, the timing of this announcement is some what suspect. It is being reported that Petraeus will not testify next week before congressional oversight committees on Benghazi as initially planned. How absolutely convenient for Barack Obama and his continued stonewalling and cover up of what happened before, during and after in Benghazi.
Congressional Republicans were furious with Petraeus for what they described to THE WEEKLY STANDARD as “misleading” testimony he gave to the House Intelligence Committee on September 14. In that session, Petraeus pointed to a protest over an anti-Islam YouTube video as a primary reason for the attacks on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, despite an abundance intelligence pointing to a preplanned terrorist assault on the U.S. consulate and CIA annex there. Other members of Congress were particularly interested in questioning Petraeus about why crucial details about those attacks were left out of “talking points” the CIA prepared for lawmakers and executive branch officials. Among those details: the existence of a communications intercept between two al Qaeda-linked terrorists discussing the attacks. The level of frustration with the CIA and Petraeus had led several top Republican lawmakers to consider calling for his resignation in late October. Obama administration officials have told reporters that Petraeus’s resignation means he will not testify before congressional oversight committees next week, as planned. This will not sit well with Republicans, who believe Petraeus is in a unique position to shed light on the intelligence on Benghazi before the attack, the decision-making during the attack and the misleading stories told after it.
Just curious, how would the news of Petraeus’ resignation have played if this occurred prior to the election?

Pack your bags Christie … you will never be the GOP presidential nominee.
RINO New Jersey Governor Chris Christie called Barack Obama to wish the president congrats on his 2012 reelection win; however, only emailed Romney on the loss. Nice. Maybe Christie puckered up some more to Obama? This from the man who claimed he backed Romney, yet bear hugged Obama and provided a false image that Obama was actually bi-partisan and that Obama was actually handling the Hurricane Sandy disaster properly. UNREAL.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said that he had called President Obama to congratulate him on his win in the 2012 presidential election — but has only sent an email to Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for whom he campaigned heavily earlier this year.
“We didn’t have a political strategy discussion,” Christie said of his call to Obama, according to Bloomberg. “I said congratulations on your win last night Mr. President, he said thank you governor.”
Christie added that he had sent an email to Romney on Wednesday night.
As stated by Weasel Zippers, who would expect any less from Judas? Christie might as well change party affiliation as he will never get the Republican nomination after this “fox in the hen house” episode. This will never be forgotten. One of the reasons ultimately why Romney did not perform better was that he was too moderate for the GOP base. Christie is left of Romney no matter what comes out of his big mouth. Do not fret Lonely Conservative, those that vote to nominate a prez candidate will never, never vote for Christie after this.
- At the time of this recording the election was neck and neck. So who won?

Final POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground Tracking Poll has it a Dead Heat With Romney Winning Independents by 15 Points, Huh?
Weren’t we told by the MSM that this election would be won by which candidate won the Independent vote?
One of two things are true with the polls … 1) The pollsters/media have no idea what the outcome will be . 2) The pollsters/media do not want to tell America the truth that Romney is beating Obama.
Case in point, the final POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground tracking poll has the race between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama a dead heat, tied at 48%. At first glance one would say, well that’s par for the course. Many of the polls have it a tie or near tie, within the margin of error. Until one reads the following, Romney is winning Independents 15 points, 47% to 32%. Seriously, how is a poll tied if one candidate as a 15 point lead with Independents?
The presidential race is tied going into Election Day.
The final POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground Tracking Poll of 1,000 likely voters — conducted Sunday and Monday — shows Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama each claiming 47 percent nationally.
Our previous poll, conducted Monday through Thursday of last week, found the race tied at 48 percent. Although Romney and Obama have each led at times, the two candidates have stayed within the margin of error since the spring.
Independents break for Romney by 15 points, 47 percent to 32 percent.
Bill “the Truth” Clinton’s Obama Freudian Slip … “who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true?”
Who is the president who has been lying? Obama is The Lying King.
Did former president Bill Clinton just get a final dig into Barack Obama just before the election? Oh those Freudian slips as comments that can be taken in so many ways. Clinton asked Obama supporters in Philadelphia … “but who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true?” Hmm, you mean like all the 2008 Obama campaign lies? You mean like Obamacare will lower premium costs. Like Obama was going to cut the federal deficit in half? Like he was going to lower unemployment to 5%? Heck, America would just like an answer about Benghazi and Obama does not see fit to tell the truth.
Campaigning for President Barack Obama in Philadelphia on Monday afternoon, former President Bill Clinton struck a note of irony while attempting to criticize Mitt Romney’s campaign.
“You’re laughing, but who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true?” Clinton asked, after discounting a claim in a recent Romney ad that the Obama administration’s auto bailout hurt American workers.
“When I was a kid, if I got my hand caught in the cookie jar, where it wasn’t supposed to be, I turned red in my face, and I took my hand out of the cookie jar,” Clinton added.
Even more comical … Clinton calling anyone a liar who was nailed for perjury. Only Democrats have the cojones to make such comments.
