President Obama laments the debt talks: "All these conversations I've had over the last three weeks -- I could have been spending time with Malia and Sasha instead."

Youre getting paid over 200k, loser! Ask a general surgeon who works 16 hour days how much time he gets to spend with his kids.
Hopefully he’ll have plenty of time after January 2013...
No one forced him to take the job. He ran for it. If he has other things he wants to do he should do all of us a favor and resign.
Send Malia and Sasha to the negotiations and we’d have a deal
seriously, the potus complains about how his job keeps him from playing with his tweens? what does he think the jobless and unemployed Americans are doing this summer?
That’s because he’s “fighting” us, er... fighting for us. ;-)
Don’t let the Whitehouse gates hit you in the arse on your way out, chief.
I could have been spending time with Malia and Sasha instead.”
Translated: I could have been golfing and relaxing in a gay bathhouse.
Punk just quit and go home and play with your kids,BTW they do not look like you!
When I think of all the time I spent working two and three jobs to survive ——I could have spent that time with the kids.
Or Golfing or on vacation, or flying around in the plane supplied to me by adoring taxpayers.
Me—me -— me .
This clown really is unbelievable.
Good point; then stop playing “president,” 0bama. Pack up your stuff, round up your wookie and your daughters you miss so much, get out of OUR White House and don’t come back. Ever.
(playing the same card as was played vs. Palin in ‘08)
Liar, liar pants on fire!
Here's what he really said;
'could have been spending time with Titlist and Ping'
Effective January 1, 2001, the annual salary of the president of the United States was increased to $400,000 per year, including a $50,000 expense allowance.
Besides if he had a freaking plan where is it. 814 days and no budget.
What more can you expect from a man who never made an honest dollar in his life.
Thinks Manual Labor is a Mexican.-——and wants amnesty for him.
He is Jesse Jackass , Al Sharptongue, and Charlie Rangel all rolled into one.
IF YOU HADN’T MAXED OUT THE CREDIT CARD YOU WOULDNT NEED TO BE HAVING THIS CONVERSATION
The GALL of this goshdam fargin bastige~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Obummer might have even(Gasp,oh the humanity)missed a couple of rounds of golf over this!
I really get the feeling that he hates the job.
I say “Retire and spend all the time you want with them!”
I say “Retire and spend all your time with them!”
Here a couple more quotes from his townhall:
- “I think the free-market system is the greatest wealth-generator we’ve ever known. This isn’t about punishing wealth,” Obama says. No, it’s about asking the rich to “share in the sacrifice,” he says. He then calls them “patriotic Americans.”
- Hedge fund managers should pay their secretaries less “before we ask college students to pay more for their education,” he panders.
- He’s near D.C., but he says, “It’s nice to get out of Washington.” And he ladles the sarcasm: “There’s nothing I enjoy more than sitting hour after hour, day after day, debating the fine points of the federal budget with members of Congress.”
Don't whine. You applied for the job.
You dont think the North Koreans arent watching this "work of art" make all kinds of excuses and exude weakness, and thinking behind the scenes how they will provocate against South Korea or launch a Taepodong II ICBM over Japan?
This is horrible. HIS POLICIES FAILED.
All the jerk is saying live (C-Span) is to the assembled brownshirt automotons in Maryland is that "I could have done a better sale job of my policies before the American People." Un freaking believable.
Ding, ding, ding!
It’s now $400K with employer paid lodging and transportation. If he did not want to work, why did he apply in the first place? (Rhetorical)
When did the kids take up golf?
I read it as an inference that Obama talking with House Republicans is like talking to children.
He’s raising a billion bucks to campaign for a job he hates? No one believes that.
He’s probably ticked off because it’s cutting into his time on the golf course.
Obama is just a lazy, flash in the pan snake oil salesman who thinks, like the rest of them, that he is being opressed if he actually works. We have all seen these types...the ones pretending to be doing their jobs...the ones who make a simple task look like a tremendous effort and then expect compliments for doing only what they were being paid to do. And, of course, they expect extra compensation and time off...just because they showed up.
KEEP THE PRESSURE UP...DON'T CAVE REPUBLICANS!!!
There...that's better. Hope you don't mind.
How nice that he named two of his golf clubs after his daughters...or was it the other way around?
"On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."
I’m sure he’s lamented the time he’s spent on all those golf games too, when he could have been spending time with his daughters.
Wow....she’s got a wider-load than I previouly thought!
Wow....she’s got a wider-load than I previouly thought!
can't wait until he is once again a private citizen and see how often they travel to Hawaii!!!
Do you have a specific link?
Congressional GOP MUST
1. Stop “negotiating” with Obama.
2. Constrict all “negotiation” within the confines of:
a. The House passed Ryan Budget Plan
b. A Senate/Democrat alternative to that
c. A House/Senate Conference Committee tasked with trying to make a single, compromise bill from the two.
There is nothing to “negotiate” with Obama over until Harry Reid has the Senate do it’s Constitutionally required function of legislating.
Quit giving Obama means to promote his media agenda that “HE” is doing something.
The only thing he is actually doing is calling meetings for the single purpose of going out to the microphones to claim he has been “negotiating”.
He is pretending to play “good cop” to Harry Reid’s “bad cop”, in a joint plan to simply run down the clock to default and then blame the success in creating that crisis as the GOPs “fault”.
While future deficits are a huge problem.
Resolving them in a “big and historic” plan is NOT the immediate problem.
The IMMEDIATE problem is today’s spending in the discretionary portion of everything the Executive Branch spends - Obama’s spending agenda.
The manufactured “crisis” is an attempt to avoid line item budget negotiations between the House and Senate over Obama’s discretionary spending; and take the legislative approval over the ‘debt limit’ directly to big general numbers on discretionary spending that do not question specific current spending excess.
Thanks Free America52. Zero should resign if the job is too demanding on time he would otherwise spend with his private-schooled children.
Thx...glad you didn’t mind.
You said it.
Last week Chris Christie said he didn’t want to run for President right now because he didn’t want to miss his kids’ growing up years.
That is all.
