Sequester for Thee, Not for Me … Bo the Obama Dog Keeps His Motorcade, WH Calligraphers & Never Ending Air Force One Travel, But Children Prevented from Touring White House
Sequester for Thee, Not for Me …
Never has there been a president who cared less about the plight of the American people and acted more like King Louis the XVI’s than President Barack Hussein Obama. It is simple shameless that Barack Obama would inflict pain upon the American people through sequestration to make his childish point and attempt to score political points. Obama is the president who continually talks about shared sacrifice and that every ne must have skin in the game. One would think that he might start with himself and lead by example. That is what a leader would do. However, Obama is no leader. He is a community agitator whose sole job is to keep people at each others throats. Barack Obama is a petty president and it has never been witnessed more just how “small” he is than his threats of the end of times when sequestration took place and his efforts to make sure that “We the People” felt pain, rather than just making cuts that every responsible American has had to do in the past 4 years.
Iowa School children beg Obama to keep tours open. Had it been a Republican President, the MSM would have reported … Obama tells children to pound sand.
As the White House has stated that the tours will end and school children across America who had trips planned are SOL, all in the name of sequester cuts. However, sequestration has not stopped Barack Obama from going about his normal daily life. As government workers are furloughed, Obama tells tourists they can no longer visit the White House, Obama claims long lines will be experienced at airports and he lets illegal aliens loose in the US because of sequestration, one has to wonder what cuts Obama and the first family will feel? In the past, as reported at the Gateway Pundit via Business, Obama finds the money to take his motorcade with Bo, the first dog, to travel to PetSmart. Does anyone think that Obama will be losing his motorcade? How about less travel time on Air Force One?
The National Parks yearly budget for the White House visitors center is about $9 million or the cost to operate Air Force One for approximately 51 hours. But Obama supposedly cares about the children. BS! And of course the White House has no problem in keeping three calligraphers for a total if $277K a year.
Just curious, if Obama cannot handle 2.3% cuts from government programs without claiming that the sky will fall and such cuts would bring the end of times, how are we supposed to take him serious that he would reform entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid and welfare and programs like Social Security?
While President Barack Obama has spent weeks warning of the dark consequences of across-the-board budget cuts, there’s one area of government where his staff has failed to calculate their impact: the White House itself.
Obama administration spokesman Jay Carney told reporters Thursday that “detailed decisions” have yet to be made about how the administration would meet a projected $24 million reduction to the executive office budget, which may include furloughs of presidential aides and other employees.
“I’m not going say that this person is going have to be furloughed today, if that hasn’t happened yet and we don’t know when that will happen specifically,” he said.
The law requires the executive office of the president, which has about 2,000 employees, to cut approximately $24 million out of its $711 million fiscal year 2013 budget request, according to a report by the White House Office of Management and Budget released the day the reductions came into effect.
Media Bias: CBS 60 Minutes Does Not Air on TV Barack Obama Admitting Mistakes in Campaign Ads … AKA Lying and Presenting Falsehoods against Romney
More Media Bias … Obama admits false ads against Romney and CBS decides not to air the comment on TV …
Could there be any greater example of MSM liberal bias than CBS’s 60 Minutes not airing during tehir TV broadcast that President Barack Obama admitted to mistakes in his campaign ads. UNREAL. CBS in their infinite wisdom and keeping up with being in the tank for Obama never allowed this to air during the TV broadcast, only posting it in line. During the interview Obama admits to … ” “Do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign, are there mistakes that are made … “. Mistakes made, or purposeful smear campaign Mr. President? But Obama justifies his campaigns deceitful lies because there is a lot at stake. Welcome to Chicago thug style politics. The GOP and Romney best not bring a knife to a political gun fight.
Barack Obama admits false political advertizing, but that’s ok, because you know, there’s a lot at stake in this election.
From the Weekly Standard:
Look, the fact-checkers have had problems with the ads on both sides,” Kroft says to Obama in the unaired clip, “and say they’ve been misleading and in some cases just not true. Does that disturb you? I mean, some of them are your ads.”
Obama responds: “Do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign, are there mistakes that are made, areas where there is no doubt somebody could dispute how we are presenting things? You know, that happens in politics.”
Kroft responds: “Aren’t the American entitled to the truth? Or a better version of it?”
“The truth of the matter is, most of the time we’re having a vigorous debate about a vision for the country,” Obama says. “And, you know, there’s a lot at stake in this election. So is it going to be sharp sometimes? Absolutely. But will the American people ultimately have a good sense of where I want to take the country and where Gov. Romney takes the country? I think they will.”
What, you mean that Obama and his minions knew that Romney did not help murder a cancer patient, did pay taxes and that the GOP is not out to kill old people and children, harm the air and water and kick granny off the cliff?
President Barack Obama Campaign Quietly Pulls Faux Flag from Shop Obama … You Mean We Can’t Pleadge Allegiance to Obama Anymore?
What to do America … you can do longer order the Obama flag of un-America.
It appears the tasteless Obama flag, entitled ‘Our Stripes’, has been removed from the shop Obama campaign store. Say it isn’t so, what is the LEFT going to do” How are they going to pledge allegiance to Obama without their pledge pin? Can America give a collective, WTF! How arrogant are these people that they would create such a piece of merchandise and charge $35 for the flag of the Obama states of un-America? The reelect Obama team replaced the stars with the Obama campaign logo. I guess they could not figure out how many stars to put on the flag.
As reported at Buzz Feed, although the web page no longer brings up the offensive item, for those of you who think this is BS, the cached page still brings of the item; however, an error when one tries to add it to their cart. It is hard to believe that any other Presidential candidate would ever be so arrogant and narcissistic that they would even dream of doing such a thing. Then again, we have to remember who we are speaking of.
Also, let’s not forget the creepy fact that this Obama flag’s stripes have a hauntingly and grisly similarity to the pictures at the Libyan consulate in Benghazi that showed the the blood stained images of fingers being dragged across the column (picture can bee seen HERE). It is bad enough that Team Obama would try and create a flag in their Obamamessiah’s image, but to have it resemble the disastrous Obama foreign policy blunder and the murder of a US Ambassador, really?
No one can ever accuse Obama and his minions of having taste. Vave these people no shame at all?
Obama in Wonderland … Democrat Minions Spin Embarassing Recall Victory by Wisconsin Gov. Walker as a Positive for Progressives & Unions … Huh?
Welcome to Obama in Wonderland, where up is down, left is right and if Team Obama are talking … they are lying through their teeth.
After last nights resounding recall election victory by Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov Kleefisch in Wisconsin, Team Obama actually had the audacity to say that Democrats sent a strong message to Walker. Huh? Actually Mr. President, you, Democrats and labor unions were just sent a message. In 2010 Walker defeated Barrett 52% to 47%. In 2012 Walker defeats Barrett by an even larger margin 53% to 46%. So who was sent a strong message Team Obama? It is rather comical that Obama would comment now. Maybe the Obama minions should have Tweeted these comments.
Yes, really America, the recall election was a victory for me!!!
While tonight’s outcome was not what we had hoped for – no one can dispute the strong message sent to Governor Walker. Hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites from all walks of life took a stand against the politics of division and against the flood of secret and corporate money spent on behalf of Scott Walker, which amounted to a massive spending gap of more than $31 million to $4 million,” said Tripp Wellde, campaign state director.
“It is a testament to all of those individuals who talked to their friends, neighbors, and colleagues about the stakes in this election of how close this contest was. The power of Wisconsin’s progressive, grassroots tradition was clearly on display throughout the run up to this election and we will continue to work together to ensure a brighter future for Wisconsin’s middle class.
I beg to differ with you Obama minions, I think that 53% of voters in Wisconsin dispute your so-called strong message. Just a note to Barack Obama, Democrats, the Left, labor unions and Obama’s mouth pieces … YOU LOST!!!
FAIRNESS MR. PRESIDENT? AMERICA, YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO AFFORD A VACATION … BUT THAT DOES NOT STOP BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA.
President Barack Obama talks of class warfare, the 1% vs. the 99%, and fairness. However, Michelle Obama’s ski trip to Aspen, CO marks the 16th Obama vacation. Just curious America, how many of you have taken 16 vacations in the last three years? President Obama, you like to talk of fairness … is it fair that you and yours take 16 vacations on the tax payers dime when most not only have not taken 16 vacations, many have not even taken 16 days. That is if they are lucky enough to be employed.Granted former President GWB took many vacation days as well’ however, they were mostly “staycations” on his ranch in Crawford, TX.
First lady Michelle Obama’s weekend jaunt to Aspen, Colorado for a President’s Day ski holiday with her daughters Sasha and Malia makes the 16th time members of the first family have gone on extended vacations during their three years in office.
But his have become more controversial because of the costs associated with moving the first family to a public vacation spot, unlike the Bushes to their remote ranch in Crawford, Texas. For example, the Hawaii Reporter said the first family’s 2011 Christmas vacation in Hawaii would exceed $1.5 million.
Critics and even some in his own party say the vacations present a bad image at a time when many Americans are struggling to get by during the recession. According to recent Harris poll, only three in 10 said they plan to take a vacation lasting longer than a week in the next six months, and that number has been dropping during the recession as people worry about the costs of vacations. Other polls have found that less than half of all Americans take all the vacation time they earn because they can’t afford trips.
Check out Obama’s Vacation List HERE. Honestly, how out of touch is Barack and Michelle Obama? Who in their right mind takes an Aspen vacation after already having just been on a 17 day trip to Hawaii that cost taxpayers $4 million. How do these people claim a populist campaign with a straight face? They talk of the evil 1% … if you have not figured it out, Barack and Michelle are the 1%. You might want to remember this lack of empathy in the 2012 Presidential election when casting your vote.
It’s good to be King & Queen … Hope and Change, eh?
Barack Obama, It is Great to be Back in Texas, eh … Kansas … Idiot Moment, Job Losses Blamed on Technology
Barack Obama … further Lost in Smallness …
Barack Obama, ever wonder how dangerous one man could be? Obama wants us to go back to the days before computers, ATM’s and smart phones. Obama will not be happy until everyone is working as a bank teller or a telephone switchboard operator. No one should ever wonder why the economy is in the state it is … Obama is clueless, worse, he is dangerous.
This was supposed to be a joke of sorts and slip of the tongue. Sorry Barack, we forgot to laugh. We the People tend to do this when the economy is in the tank and millions are without jobs. The real 99% can’t go on 17 day vacations to Hawaii.
However, that was not the eye opener that made America scratch their collective head. The “WTF” moment of complete ignorance came from Obama when he blamed job losses on technology. Huh? I guess Obama blames Al Gore, who claims to have invented the Internet, responsible for job loss.
“Layoffs too often became permanent, not part of the business cycle. And these changes didn’t just affect blue collar workers. If you were a bank teller or a phone operator or a travel agent, you saw many in your profession replaced by ATMs and the internet,” President Obama said at a campaign event in Kansas.
What king of complete and total bufoon is this guy? Seriously, and the Left called Bush stupid? Has Obama no understanding that making things more efficient that the economy becomes more productive? Does Obama not comprehend how many jobs have been created by the Internet? Does he them also blame Bill Gates and the late Steve Jobs for technology innovation? Are they to blame as well for the loss of jobs. How ignorant could one person really be? In this case because the individual is the president of the United Stated, how dangerous could one man possibly be?
Please rid the United States of this President in 2012 and help get America back to success and prosperity.
Obamanomics: Barack Obama’s Mouthpiece Jay Carney Says Economy “Vastly Improved” Since Obama Took Office
Welcome to more Obama in Wonderland …
In honor of Baghdad Bob and all the spin, stretching of the truth and lies that he was known for comes Obama White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. This Obama minion and tool actually has the audacity to say that the economy is vastly improved since Barack Obama took office. Really, who knew? How do these people make such comments and keep a straight face?
Relax, all is well … the economy is vastly improved
Watch the VIDEO at RCP and see transcript below:
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney: “Well, two things remain uncontestably true. The economy is vastly improved from what it was when Barack Obama was sworn into office as president. We were in economic free-fall. There were predictions that we were headed to the second Great Depression. We were losing up to, over 700,000 jobs a month, we were contracting at greater than 6 percent — our economy was. So, the economy has improved. It has not improved enough.
“Well, there’s no question that we face headwinds, and the president has been very direct about that. And we need to do everything we can, across the front, to ensure we’re doing what we can to spur growth, spur job creation.”
HUH??? What alternate universe do these people live in? What does this Administration think they are going to campaign on in 2012? Does Obama actually think he is going to get away with “Hope & Change”, the economy is better and let his have another four years to have his policies work? Seriously, what planet are these people from?
VASTLY IMPROVED! As noted at Michelle Malkin.com, the unemployment, gas prices and other numbers hardly play into Obama’s narrative.
When Obama took office the unemployment rate was 7.2 percent — today, two and a half years later, it’s 9.2 percent. Gas was about $1.79 a gallon when Obama took office. Today it’s $3.68. There are around 13 million more people on food stamps today than there were in January of 2009.
Barack Obama said the following at a town hall event in Virginia earlier in the week, “I want to live in a society that’s fair. “Not just out of charitable reasons, but because it improves my life.” Really, fairness improves his life and who is it that determines what is fair? To claim one is for fairness and then pander to those that Obama thinks are being treated in an unfair manner, is simple class warfare. Nothing less.
Great pic, Hat Tip: Left Coast Rebel
Fairness? What does it really mean to live in a society that is fair? Does it mean that when one works harder than another, they are not supposed to be rewarded? In Obama’s world that is the case. Obama believes in taking from those who are the earners and giving it to those that expect a hand out. In Obamaland, as Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion states, “The age of Obama is the age of envy and jealousy couched as fairness. ”
How bad is Obama’s policies and view when even the socialists get in it Europe? From the UK Telegraph comes, “Welfare handouts aren’t fair – and the public knows it”.
As we report today, Policy Exchange – supposedly the Prime Minister’s favourite ideas outlet – has done a brave and unusual thing. Rather than polling the public just on policy and voting intention, it has put a far more abstract moral issue before them. It instructed the pollsters at YouGov to find out precisely what the public thought the most powerful term of approbation in the political lexicon – “fair” – actually amounted to.
The quite unequivocal reply that was received (with breathtakingly enormous majorities in some forms) came as no surprise to this column. To most voters, fairness does not mean an equal distribution of resources and wealth, or even a redistribution of these things according to need. It means, as the report’s title – “Just Deserts” – implies, that people get what they deserve. And what is deserved, the respondents made clear, refers to that which is achieved by effort, talent or dedication to duty: in other words, earned on merit.
How is it possible that the Brits get it and we in American do not? Have we become that envious and lazy of a nation? Be very careful America as to what a pandering, class warfare, socialist, desperate President passes off as fairness. Those who take risks and make the money, and who also pay the majority of the taxes, are the ones who employ people. Fairness is not taking what is not yours, its what is rightfully yours based upon merit, not what is given to you because you did nothing to earn it. Yet another wake up call from the UK, a poll showing that an overwhelming majority believe that people should work for their unemployment benefits. What a novel concept. Actually be productive rather than a coach potato collecting benefits. Let’s add drug testing to the collection of welfare as well. If an individual has to pass a drug test to get a job, then they should as well to get tax payer benefits.
Do you still doubt that the US government ridiculously spends the tax payers dollars … Obama’s Muppet Diplomacy. So Muppets are supposed to woo Pakistan children away from al-Qaida.
Muslim Sesame Street … you heard that correct. The United States is to fund $20 million for a remake of Sesame Street in Pakistan. So now we are supposed to win the hearts and minds of the Pakistan people through Muppet’s? Because the
US civilian aid to Pakistan has recently tripled to $1.5 billion a year has been such a success. This is what is worth $20 million while American’s sacrifice? It looks like Crazy Harry, seen below, will finally get a staring role on Pakistan Sesame Street. VIDEO.
The United States is funding a Pakistani remake of the popular TV children’s show Sesame Street.
In a new effort to win hearts and minds in Pakistan, USAID – the development arm of the US government – is donating $20m (£12m) to the country to create a local Urdu version of the show.
Obama’s Trip to Williamsburg: With a Government Shut Down Hours Away … Does Obama Have the Audacity to Take Another Vacation
Are you serious, another Obama vacation? Barack Obama with yet another example of more Presidental skin in the game …
Whether the government is on the verge of shutting down or not, what is up with this President going on yet another vacation? As reported at the Daily Press, President Obama and the First Family are planning to visit the Colonial Williamsburg. They are calling it a long planned family trip. And to make matters worse, on Thursday morning, the Federal Aviation Administration established a no-fly zone over Williamsburg that will be in place from Friday through Monday.
So the question remains, will Barack Obama have the audacity to take this vacation if the government shuts down? Also, the question needs to be asked why Obama and Michelle think its ok to continuously take vacations when most of America cannot afford to. Did Obama run for President so that he could receive the perks of the job? It is certainly looking that way. One would think that a President would have a bit more empathy for the plight of Americans and not continue to take a vacation or going golf at every opportunity. Not only have people questioned whether Obama has the ability to lead and is late to the show when dealing with important issues like Libya and the budget crisis resulting in a possible government shut down … Obama gives the perception that he is not engaged with the disastrous situation in America.
Just the other day Obama stated that he “remembered what it was like to pump gas”. Maybe Obama would also like to show “We the People” that he remembers what it is like to do without. As the Lonely Conservative opines, “while so many Americans suffer through this rotten economy and endure the inflation caused by his policies, we can still live vicariously through the Obama family. Lucky us”. No wonder Obama wanted an answer on the budget battle this morning and the pending government shut down because he has a vacation planned for this weekend.
UPDATE I: Doug Ross has Obama’s calendar and asks the question … Is this the calendar of a President concerned with a budget, a government shutdown, the troops, unemployment or rising gas prices. The answer would be no.
2012 cannot come soon enough.
