Our Vindictive President

BO is promising to bring the pain to average Americans if he doesn’t get his way. His minions are out and about making threats to the general public, using his bully pulpit to terrorize. Instead of “smarter spending cuts”, which have been offered to ‘His Majesty’, he prefers to wander around the country threatening. I have very little doubt he will punish as many of us as possible to achieve his political goals. Never has there been an uglier human being occupying Big White. Instead of flying around the country on the taxpayer dime with his campaign roadshow, Obama should hike the quarter mile to the Capitol and compromise with Congress. Doesn’t BO see the the hypocrisy of spending oodles of taxpayer money flying around the country whining about a sequester  he and Jack Lew created? We spend a fortune for BO to occupy the bully pulpit, to pay for his and his family’s vacations (separate but equal), hosting parties for his donors and the entertainment elite, extravagant dinners, etc;. When do we ever get a break from them?

Governor Haley was so frustrated by the stupidity she took a couple of shots at BO and Congress:

“I could not be more frustrated than I am right now,” Haley told reporters after the meeting. She said that when she asked Obama if he would consider a last-minute plan to shave about 2 percent from the annual federal budget without increasing taxes, the answer was “no.”

“My kids could go and find $83 billion out of a $4 trillion budget,” Haley said. “This is not rocket science.”

Haley also made no effort to spare congressional Republicans, who took last week off with only a few days left before the sequestration process was set to begin.

“There is no leadership. There is no confidence. There is nothing that shows us that they actually care about what they’re doing,” Haley said. “What they’re doing is playing games, and we as the taxpayers are having to cover for their games. We’re not going to do it anymore.”

Haley also noted that “no one should be going home. No one should be playing golf. No one should be taking vacations.”

Governor Jindal didn’t hold back either:

“I think the president is trying to force us into a false choice,” Jindal said. “The reality is, there is no reason for these cuts to be made this way.” Obama could instruct his Cabinet to emphasize cuts to spending on things like consultants, Jindal said, and not on things like Head Start. “It is the president’s job as the chief executive to prioritize.”

BO has complained, still is, that the sequester does not afford him any flexibility. R-words have sent two bills to the Senate to give him wiggle room to prioritize where cuts will be made, the flexibility he says he needs. But, he rejects that outright. What we are talking about is two cents cut from every dollar spent and even that is not enough to lower the deficit.

What we’re talking about here is two cents on the dollar. Every dollar the government spends today, 35 cents is borrowed from the Chinese and others. What is going on here is ending up in a position where we borrow not 35, but 33 cents, and that is going to bring Armageddon. An example of the cynicism of this campaign, is one lobbyist for the liberal causes leading 3,000 organizations in opposing the cuts, who told The Washington Post the following: ‘The worst case scenario is the sequester hits and nothing really bad happens.’

If the worst case scenario for Progressives and BO is “nothing really bad happens”, what does that say about a President who plays brinkmanship to the detriment of the country?

  1. ‘His hair is gray from his children, not his job’: Michelle Obama reveals Barack’s face ‘drops’ when he sees their oldest daughter dressed up to go out with friends. On ABC News with Robin Roberts. Finally admits she’s wearing a wig

    • Oh, and WE are paying for this funtrip for MO… 😦

      “Michelle Obama also used the interview to promote her Let’s Move! campaign, noting that the country is seeing ‘rates of obesity coming down like never before’.
      She also said she was launching a new initiative called the ‘My Plate Recipe Partnership’, a website providing families with online recipes, which meet the healthy My Plate guidelines.

    • Carole

      It is cree-py to see Barry holding his daughters’ hands. The man is effeminate and old Moo must keep interjecting the idea that he is a great father, husband and family man. The secrets that will be revealed when old gray haired Barry is exposed when he is no longer mthe “King of America.” Old Hillary has as it is rummored written a book telling about the “dirty secrets” of the Obamas.

    • Kucinich proposed that one years ago… he was my Rep at one time

  2. My boss is fond of quoting the movie, “Dave.” He especially loves the scene where Kevin Kline and Charles Grodin go through the budget line-by-line and cut the fluff. Seems we could use that right now. Too bad it is only a Hollywood fantasy.

    • Well, BO did promise to do that but, like everything else it had a very short shelf life.

  3. Lies, lies and more damn lies:

    ABC is defending its decision to edit out an apparently erroneous claim by Michelle Obama in its broadcast of the first lady’s interview on Good Morning America today, saying it made the changes “solely” for the sake of time.

    As The Washington Examiner reported this morning, the first lady claimed during an interview with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts that 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton, who was killed in Chicago shortly after performing during the President’s Inauguration, was shot because “some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need.”

    • Edited because MO lies as much as BO…..two BS artists

      • Waiting for 2012

        I grew up next door to a cow farm and never saw as much BS being shovled as I do nowadays. 🙂

  4. Carole

    I am surprised that the Obamas can even nremember anythying they say in public. Lies fly out of their mouths at such a fast rate that people get overwhelmed by the lies and are deceived into believing that the Obamas really care about America, obese humans, our debt, our diets and the military.

    People can’t be so naive to believe that Moo’s hair is her own. At the Oscars, which I did not watch, but saw a pic of Moo on the internet, it was obvious that the wig was placed too far over her forehead because the bangs almost covered her eyes. Now in this pic, the bangs are not as long. Moo is trying to make Americans believe that she is trying to look sexy for the prez. Come on, the prez could care less….hahahaha you know? Get my drift?

    • they don’t have to remember…the media covers for them..so do their peeps (Dems and Progs)

  5. Give. Me. A. Break….BO in VA…. How about he does the right thing and get his lazy ass back to DC.

    “You know, the one thing about being president is, after four years, you get pretty humble. You’d think maybe you wouldn’t but actually you become more humble–you realize what you don’t know,” Obama said.

    “You realize all the mistakes you made. But you also realize you can’t do things by yourself. That’s not how our system works. You’ve got to have the help and the goodwill of Congress, and what that means is you’ve got to make sure that constituents of members of Congress are putting some pressure on them, making sure they’re doing the right thing.”

  6. Email Boehner… let BO twist in the wind for once. Flood the Reps with email to stand their ground…

  7. I have always wondered why her worshippers come out of the woodwork whenever anyone posits that she is wearing a wig. Surely most of them know that Black women can’t have Asian or Indian hair, unless they are part Asian or Indian..It’s highly improbable, genetics-wise.

    • When one lives in a make-believe world, anything is possible.

      • including magic hair that can shrink and grow between photo ops!! Just look at how those bangs have grown by Oscar night!!

        • LOL 😀 …they sure did

  9. Meeting on Friday to “discuss” sequester cuts….BO and the Dims painted themselves into a corner, now want the R-words to save them from themselves….

  10. Never, ever let a sequester go to waste….vindictive as hell

    In a highly unusual move, federal immigration officials have released hundreds of detainees from immigration detention centers around the country in an effort to save money as automatic budget cuts loom in Washington, officials said…

    The agency, Ms. Christensen added, “is continuing to prosecute their cases in immigration court and, when ordered, will seek their removal from the country.”

    Officials did not reveal precisely how many detainees were released or where the releases took place, but immigrants’ advocates around the country have been reporting that hundreds of detainees were freed in numerous locations , including Hudson County, N.J.; Polk County, Texas; Broward County, Fla.; and New Orleans; and from centers in Arizona, Alabama, Georgia and New York.

    While immigration officials occasionally free detainees on supervised release, this mass release — so many in such a short span of time — appears to be unprecedented in recent memory, immigration advocates said.

  13. GAK!!…..
    Mrs. Obama admitted “it’s been a while” since she’s cooked for her family, but said she looks forward to the day she can whip up meals for her husband and daughters.

    “I walk in the kitchen every day, every day,” she joked.

    But cooking for her family isn’t the only thing Mrs. Obama said she misses since becoming first lady.

    “Going to Target for me is like a dream, you know? That one time I went, you noticed it created a stir. I’m gonna do it again, doggone it. Next four years, I’m going out. I’m breaking out. I’m gonna disguise Bo. I’m gonna put on a coat. I’m gonna take a walk, and my agents won’t know a thing. Don’t tell ’em,” she joked.

    what a bunch of BS….

    • Waiting for 2012

      Yeah, she’s so domestic–that’s why they had a nanny for the girls when they lived in Chicago.

      As for her glee in “breaking out” of Big White: go for it, sister…and keep on walking. Don’t come back.

  14. Voting Rights Act to the dustbin of history? One can only hope so.

    “Justice Anthony Kennedy, often the swing vote between the Supreme Court’s liberal and conservative blocs, didn’t offer progressives much hope that he would find Section 5 constitutional, saying that while the provision was necessary in 1965, this was 2013.

    “The Marshall Plan was very good, too — the Northwest Ordinance, the Morrill Act — but times change,” Kennedy said.

    If Congress wants to “single out” states, he said, the legislators should “do it by name.” He repeatedly described Congress as having “reverse engineered” the formula originally used in the Voting Rights Act to ensure that certain states would be covered by Section 5. Lawmakers didn’t take the “time and energy” to come up with a proper formula for which states should be subject to preclearance, said Kennedy….snip

    After the oral argument, Pete Williams of NBC News observed, “I think it’s safe to say there are five votes to strike down either one or both parts of the Voting Rights Act.”

  15. See, they are vindictive and threaten anyone who doesn’t show BO “teh Love”.
    Finally, it’s all starting to come out…

    “Lanny Davis, who served under President Bill Clinton as special counsel to the White House, told Washington, D.C.’s WMAL this morning that the Obama White House had threatened the Washington Times over his column, warning that the Times would suffer limited access to White House officials and might have its White House credentials revoked. Davis, a centrist Democrat, is sometimes critical of the Obama administration’s policies.

  16. I am so loving this…Pelosi will have fits!! 😀

    “House Speaker John A. Boehner announced on Wednesday that members will no longer be allowed to travel by military aircraft on Congressional delegation trips.

    The Ohio Republican told members that because of the spending cuts mandated by sequestration, he will cut the costs of the taxpayer funded trips by suspending the standard military aircraft and making members fly commercial.

    The airfare costs would still be picked up by government funds, but it is far less expensive to fly commercial than it is to commission a military plane.

    “The Speaker believes this is the prudent and responsible course of action, and it goes above and beyond the spending cuts the House will be implementing,” said a GOP aide.”

  17. 7 minutes to negotiate? He spent more time then that with the Rosa Parks statue….

    …the president gave GOP lawmakers as much as seven minutes, a rare face-to-face encounter that the White House described as a “meeting.”

    The White House’s characterization of this momentary huddle at the Capitol as a meeting illuminates Mr. Obama’s strategy in dealing with Republicans on the budget cuts and other fiscal deadlines.

    With speeches and other staged events, the president has tried to build public pressure for his agenda of tax increases coupled with spending cuts.

    But he has made little time for negotiating directly with lawmakers who oppose his plans.

    “It is a sincere conviction among Republicans that the president’s negotiating posture isn’t about getting a deal done, it’s a zero-sum political game where his aim is to destroy the Republican [House] majority in the next election,” said Steve Schmidt, a Republican strategist who served in 2008 as Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign manager. “It’s certainly not an effective strategy for a leader in search of a deal.”

  18. Arnie Duncan should have to wash his mouth out with soap….

    “There are literally teachers now who are getting pink slips, who are getting notices that they can’t come back this fall.” But when pressed to identify which teachers are “literally” getting pink slips right now, Duncan could only name one country in West Virginia. And when The Washington Post followed up with the director of federal programs for that county, she said that while five to six teachers were being laid off, those layoffs had nothing to do with the sequester. In fact, they were caused by a previous White House decision to cut funding for ineffective Head Start programs.”

    • Carole

      Gee that’s funny, in my area teachers are getting back pay that they had to take off for furlough days, and even some districts are ending the furlough days. Always in March the newest teachers and teachers that taught starting in 2005 get pink slips, butt most are placed in positions that have been opened up due to retirement and people leaving for better employment somewhere else. Just a lot of hype by the Dim-o-cats.

  19. More Liberal push back on BO…. 😀

    “Bob Edgar, President of Common Cause, said, “If President Obama is serious about his often-expressed desire to rein in big money in politics, he should shut down Organizing for Action and disavow any plan to schedule regular meetings with its major donors. Access to the President should never be for sale.”

    Edgar concluded that “[w]ith its reported promise of quarterly presidential meetings for donors and ‘bundlers’ who raise $500,000, Organizing For Action apparently intends to extend and deepen the pay-to-play Washington culture that Barack Obama came to prominence pledging to end.” He mocked the “White House’s suggestion this week that this group will somehow be independent” as “laughable.”
