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.
EVERYONE could have had three days to read it before the vote. No excuse. This administration stinks to high heaven.
I read that Louis bought Marie a cake this weekend...how appropriate.
Well, it probably takes until Tuesday to put up the Roman columns for his prime time spectacle.
Don’t hold your breath waiiting for that to happen.
ROFLMAO. That’s hilarious!
ROFLMAO. That’s hillarious!
Will someone please make a note of this “hurry up and wait mentality” of Obama and at least mention it the next porkulus he mandates? His Haughtiness mandated that the Congress HAD to sign that thing without reading it. Now, he dawdles in signing it, it was SO urgent. - It’s all about Obama flaunting his total control. - Does anyone really think some URGENT emergency or the other won’t cause us to most likely never have another Presidential election UNLESS the “messiah” is assured a hundred percent of winning?
Salt in the wound.
He’s enjoying this.
He will f**kup though, it’s only a matter of time.
He’s in way over his head.
It won’t be long until Americans start to despise him for the economy that he won’t fix—socialism will not stimulate our economy.
This “stimulus” bill is a slap in the face for any hard-working American capitalist.
He gave our money to entities and institutions that are, in many cases, diametrically opposed to capitalism. This is reckless and immoral.
But today’s American is fat, dumb and happy and likely won’t even bother to consider all of the implications and consequences from 0bama’s bill.
Just look at all the Democrats have gained by creating economic problems—why would they want it to get better?
Socialism is not about prosperity it is about power, control and championing mediocrity—it is CLEARLY un-American.
TODAY’S DEMOCRATS ARE OUR NEW DOMESTIC ENEMIES—UN-AMERICAN, PERIOD!
It’s time we called them out as such and treated them as such.
Now, if we can only find enough men who will stand up to them.

Obama Says A Baby Is A Punishment
Ooops, the News Cycle is closed until Tuesday so I guess Armageddon can be postponed until then. A full fledged across the spectrum broadcast of the signing is no doubt in store for us all on Tues.
.....and Americans will die.
thanks...almost as funny as his promise to work 24/7
My teenage son mentioned the other day that people(in his circle) are already becoming irritated with Obama.
Doesn't bode well for the messiah.
You forgot the “every day this is delayed, 2,000 people lose their jobs” stuff. That’s about 8,000 more by my count.
This bill is nothing more than a blank check to the Dems to do with as they wish and pass some along to their supporters. It’s about the power and the money. Has nothing to do with stimulating the economy. When it doesn’t work, they will be back for more.....
Besides not wanting anyone to read and give digestion time, Nazi Pelosi and gang had to leave for a nice European jaunt...that is why it had to be rushed through...UFB.
No, no, no, acording to Pelosi another 17,000,000 lose their jobs every day.
Can’t wait ‘till Rush comes back Monday and points that out.
It is so we have a chance to read and then we can tell him if we really want it.
Not even four weeks in office and already he has to take a four day vacation? I wish I had that type of benefits.
Spring break, April maybe?
If it turns out that The Undocumented One is found to be ineligible to be president according to the Constitution, then everything he does now will be null and void. Everything. Every appointment, every bill, every signature on every document -- all of it will be as if it never happened.
Would you rather this occur now, when the damage can still be contained, or do you want to wait three years or two, until the matter is totally unavoidable due to demonstrations by people who are fed up with the cover-ups?
Please ask your state's senators and congressmen to help the people of America learn the truth about the identity of the man living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. He may, in fact, be an impostor.
Don't you want to be sure? Are you really sure now that he's the legal president?
I'm not, and there are millions of us who feel this way, and we will not be silenced.
Glen Beck now on FOX at 5:00 in New York. So far doing a bang up job. Got to listen. Also on the radio in the morning. 9 -11 am
One of my best friends teaches in an almost all black high school, and last week she told me that one of her students said in class, "I'm sick of seeing his face everywhere. I'm getting sick of him already," and other kids did not protest or smack this student down. I thought this was interesting since my friend was previously bombarded, overwhelmed, and disgusted with Obamania at this school.
“Is there anyway they can recall the bill and make it null and void....”
along with throwing the 60th vote of Burris, that ought to do it, LOL.
