Skip to comments.Obama delays signing 'urgent' stimulus for Chicago fun
Posted on 02/15/2009 4:26:30 PM PST by Joiseydude
After telling the nation it was so urgent to pass the stimulus bill there was no time to even read it, President Obama took off for Chicago with wife Michelle, to dine at a fancy Chicago restaurant and spend the night at home in Hyde Park for Valentine's Day. The Bill will just have to wait for him to sign it next Tuesday.
How to explain this odd behavior? Was this a calculated move? What could be the thinking behind it?
Obama and his advisors are no doubt counting on the press to avoid noticing the contradiction between the alleged urgency and taking time off. This neglect is a necessary precondition for all that follows.

I knew I shouldn’t get on FR today. I’m leaving, and will be back at my reading post tomorrow. Goodness, the audacity of the dope.
NO TIME TO LET CONGRESS READ THE BILL
“The Sky Is Falling”
We’ll sign the bill first thing we get back from vacation
He wants to make a spectacle of it in grand fashion, no other reason.
The exscuse will be couched in personal BS about Obama and his wife. Why don’t they just ban all media except People Magazine and be done with it.
“He wants to make a spectacle of it in grand fashion, no other reason”
America elected Puff Daddy.
It's going to be a LONG four years.
Just like the first stimulus bill they passed it had to done right now ,or the world would end...what a bunch of liars....they call fire in a theater....
“had to done right now ,or the world would end...what a bunch of liars”
He’s a malignant narcissist. So is she.
He loves to have people waiting on and for him.
Nice of us taxpayers to provide such a nice Valentine’s Day outing for the first couple, isn’t it? I guess dining at the White House isn’t up to their standards.
He’s been in office a month and already spent a cpl trillion...
I am one of many observers who believes Michelle Obama is accustomed to getting her way on certain issues.
The author evidently submitted the wrong version as there were four alternatives in his original article. Fortunately, I had an advanced copy and will post the 4th alternative here:
Alt 4: Michelle Learned Beyonce might be in DC this weekend
and it was so urgently needed to “stimulate” the economy that it won’t even be in effect until 2010.
on the bright side...we may have our doom delayed by 10 months or so.
It is almost like he is purposely dooing this to show us
A SIGN OF DEFIANCE!! (another form of shuck and jive).
I hope the country sees the irony in this. Couldn’t keep my promise to let you READ it as I and Congress promised, but we’ll just let it sit while I go out on the town.
