Former President Jimmy Carter May not be Dead, But his Presidency Was … Donald Trump Makes Reference at CPAC to the “Late, Great Jimmy Carter” … I’m Not Dead Yet!!! (VIDEO)
Former President Jimmy Carter needs to borrow a line from Monty Python and the Holy Grail … I’m Not Dead Yet!!!
It would appear that Donald Trump was a bit premature in announcing the death of “the late, great Jimmy Carter (VIDEO).” Yesterday at CPAC, The Donald compared the Obama presidency to that of the disastrous, failed presidency of Jimmy Carter. Trump stated that Obama’s job approval numbers at 38% were now in Jimmy Carter territory and that he never thought he would see another presidency like the late, great Jimmy Carter. Oops. Make no mistake, Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States has not passed away. However, Carter’s presidency was.
“We’re getting into Jimmy Carter territory, and I never thought I’d see anything like that again,” he said as the audience chuckled. “I lived through that time and it was not a good time and we’re pretty close – I think maybe by next month we will have surpassed the late, great Jimmy Carter.”
With Barack Obama’s failed foreign and domestic policies and adverse impact on America, it would look like from his falling polling number, Obama’s presidency is dead as well.
Let Them Eat Cake, But they are for the middle class …
As most Americans struggle to find full time employment, wonder how they are going to afford healthcare coverage after losing their insurance they they liked thanks to Obamacare, worry about becoming part of or being apart of the record number of Americans on food stamps or wonder why the federal debt is at $17.3 trillion and counting … The Obama’s and Biden’s manage to take some pricey weekend vacations on the tax payer’s dime. According to the Washington Examiner, via Judicial Watch, three separate jaunts taken by President Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, and Vice President Joe Biden during last year’s Presidents Day weekend cost at least $295,437.
Just more SACRIFICE and skin in the game from King & Queen Obama, and their court jester, Biden.
Presidents Day seems to have no equal when when it comes to how the occupants of the White House and vice president’s residence vacation.
According to new records obtained by the taxpayer watchdog group Judicial Watch, three separate jaunts taken by President Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, and Vice President Joe Biden during last year’s Presidents Day weekend cost at least $295,437.
And that’s mostly just for security, not Air Force One or other official costs.
The records were obtained from the U.S. Secret Service and details some of the “security and/or other services” of Obama’s mid-February 2013 golf trip to West Palm Beach, Fla., the annual Aspen, Colo. ski trip taken by the first lady and her daughters, and the Biden family trip, also to Aspen.
According to Judicial Watch, the president’s trip cost the Secret Service $98,135.79, including $32,406.50 for the flights, $16,466.25 for rental cars, and $48,490 for hotel rooms.
The first lady’s trip totaled $81,523.64, including $13,221.30 in flights, $3,925 in rental cars, and $64,377.34 in lodging.
And the Biden ski weekend cost $115,777.61, including $5,315 in flights, $92,596 in accommodations, and $17,866.61 in rental cars.
However, the sad reality is that it might be cheaper and better for America if we just paid them to be on vacation for the rest of Obama’s second term in office.

FOX News Poll: Obamacare Hits Record Lows, Obama’s Handling of Economy, Immigration, Federal Debt, Immigration and Income Inequality Poll Poor as Well
Hey America, How’s that “Hopey-Changey” thing working out for you?
The more that Americans learn and have to deal with Obamacare, the more they hate it. According to a recent Fox News poll, a record number of Americans oppose Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation, the not-so Affordable Healthcare Act. Fifty-nine percent now oppose Obamacare and a record low of 38% now support it. Obamacare in the eyes of the American people is not getting better, it is getting worse. To quote former Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “we have to pass the bill in order to find out what is in it” and the American people loath what’s in Obamacare. Americans are learning that were not just lied to by Barack Obama regarding Obamacare, they are learning that they were fed nothing but BS and Obamacare is a complete disaster in policy, not just implementation.
Hmm … wasn’t Obamacare created to sign up the so-called 50 million uninsured in America? Where are all the people?
A record high number of voters now oppose the 2010 Affordable Care Act and a record low number supports it, according to the latest Fox News poll.
In addition, a majority thinks the new law will increase their health care costs, while few think it will improve their quality of care.
The new poll finds 59 percent of voters oppose the health care law, up from 55 percent who opposed it six months ago (June 2013). The increase in opposition comes from both independents and Democrats.
Nearly a third of Democrats — 30 percent — oppose the law, up from 22 percent in June.
Opposition among independents went from 53 percent to 64 percent today.
The LEFT will be quick to say, well that’s a FOX News poll, what would you expect. Oh contraire mon frère … the RCP average polling on Obamacare has 37.6% For and 54.5% Against. It would appear that the Fox poll is right in line.
But it is not just healthcare that Obama is having problems with. Accross the boar on the major issues of the day, Barack Obama is a complete failure. It is really too bad that presidents do not have to face recall elections.
Do you approve or disapprove of the job Barack Obama is doing on the following issues? (All polling data can be read HERE)

While Americans were sleeping, the US debt jumped a record $328 billion in one day on Thursday and now is over $17 trillion. The jump was not a result of new spending, but instead because the government was replenishing its stock of “extraordinary measures”.
U.S. debt jumped a record $328 billion on Thursday, the first day the federal government was able to borrow money under the deal President Obama and Congress sealed this week.
The debt now equals $17.075 trillion, according to figures the Treasury Department posted online on Friday.
The $328 billion increase shattered the previous high of $238 billion set two years ago.
The giant jump comes because the government was replenishing its stock of “extraordinary measures” — the federal funds it borrowed from over the last five months as it tried to avoid bumping into the debt ceiling.
The PJ Tatler could not have stated it any better when it comes to the games that only the government is allowed to play.
This robbing Peter to pay Paul nonsense should be banned — especially since neither Peter or Paul have any extra cash anyway. If the feds were a private business, they would have been arrested, tried, and convicted for cooking the books long ago.
Senator Ted Cruz Rips Senate Debt Agreement That Ignores Obamacare … Once Again The Washington Establishment is Refusing to Listen to the American People”
And the real losers of the Senate debt agreement are the American People …
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) speaks the truth in a press conference yesterday following the announcement that Harry Reid (D-NV) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) had struck a deal to open the partially closed government and extend the debt limit. Cruz blasted the agreement for its lack of protecting the people, jobs and America against the train-wreck known as Obamacare.
Cruz blasted the Washington, DC status quo and establishment for continuing down the same path that got us to a $17 trillion debt. Maybe it truly is time for a Third Party because the GOP and Democrats do not seem to be the answer for America.
