AP:Big First Year Leaves Obama Tired
CNS News/AP ^ | December 29, 2009 | Julie Pace

Posted on 12/29/2009 4:52:31 AM PST by IbJensen

Washington (AP) - After a sleepless, overnight flight to Oslo to accept the Nobel Peace Prize earlier this month, President Barack Obama made a not altogether surprising admission. He was tired.

Who could blame him? The president was on his ninth foreign trip to his 21st country; he added a 10th trip the following week. The year had been bookended by the two most intense periods of his young presidency -- the early decisions to bail out the nation's banks and automobile industry, steps the president deemed unpopular but necessary, and his December orders to deploy 30,000 additional U.S. troops to fight the war in Afghanistan.

Throw in an unemployment rate in the double-digits, a health care bill still stuck on Capitol Hill, and last-minute negotiations on a global climate change agreement, and aides say it's no secret that the president is tired, and looking forward to recharging during his year-end family vacation in Hawaii.

Obama himself has been candid about the pressures of being president during what he has called an "extraordinary year."

"You have a convergence of factors that have made this a difficult year not so much for me but for the American people," he said in an interview with CBS News last month. "Absolutely that weighs on me."

That weight was particularly striking during the president's exhaustive, three-month review of the U.S. strategy in Afghanistan.

Who could blame him? The president was on his ninth foreign trip to his 21st country; he added a 10th trip the following week.

Who could blame him? Like most communists, He is a bumbling pompous imbecile a condition no doubt made worse due to his muslim background. He's also worried that the lid will be blown off his secret past.

Thanks to the one party system America once again finds herself screwed without any foreplay, or even a sloppy kiss.

Who indeed are the whores here? The parties or the clueless voters?

He’s tired? Well the rest of us are tired too...tired of his lies and incompetence.

And unlike him, we can’t just jet off to Hawaii for R&R.

President Bush's schedule was unbelievable and I never heard him complain...

Obama was even complaining during the campaign...about planes and hotels,etc. Obama is LAZY and he certainly doesn't give a damn about us.

Tired from what?
Playing so much golf that it takes him to the tune of 3 days before he can drag himself from the golf course to issue even a token statement on the Detroit terrorist attack that nearly slaughtered 300 innocent souls?
Why did this fool even run for president anyway when he knew he couldn't do the job?

If the duties and responsibilities of the office are proving to be too taxing for the _resident, I’m sure there are plenty of Americans who would most gladly accept his resignation!

If this is taxing him too much he really needs to slow down.

This is silly. I don't think I've ever seen a modern president who takes so many vacations or engages in so many social functions. It is almost like every weekend he is on some vacation or having some sort of party at the White House.

And when I say vacation, I mean it in a literal sense, not in the sense of a working vacation as what W used to do. 0bama really is out to lunch.

If George W. Bush
had been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to
get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more
proof of how he inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter
men behind the scenes?

If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura
Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan’s holdings of GM stock by
90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would
you have approved?

If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics,
would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and
incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and
historically significant gift, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos
of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and
tacky?

If George W Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia , would you have
approved?

If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent
“Austrian language,” would you have brushed it off
as a minor slip?

If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people
who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes,
would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to “Cinco de
Cuatro” in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th
of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would
you have winced in embarrassment?

If George W. Bush had mis-spelled the word “advice” would you have hammered
him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoe as proof of what a dunce he
is?

If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single
tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he’s a hypocrite?

If George W. Bush’s administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over
millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing
widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what
happened on 9-11?

If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout
the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than
in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue
with claims of racism and incompetence?

If George W. Bush had created the position of 32 Czars who report directly
to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in
America, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation,
even though he had no constitutional authority to do so,
would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken
more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10
years, would you have approved?

Carol Platt Liebau was the first female managing editor of the Harvard Law Review;-—> “You would think this is the time he’d really knuckle down and get to work “
Carol Platt Liebau was first female managing editor of the Harvard Law Review;

“It reminds me a little bit of my experience with him [Obama]when he was president of the Harvard Law Review. You know, I hesitated to say a lot about this during the campaign because I really thought maybe it wasn’t fair. That maybe, finally, when he got to be President, this would be a job big enough to engage and hold Barack Obama’s sustained interest, because really, is there a bigger job out here?
[...]

“[W]hen he was at the HLR you did get a very distinct sense that he was the kind of guy who much more interested in being the president of the Review, than he was in doing anything as president of the Review.”

“A lot of the time he quote/unquote “worked from home”, which was sort of a shorthand - and people would say it sort of wryly - shorthand for not really doing much. He just wasn’t around. Most of the day to day work was carried out by the managing editor of the Review, my predecessor, a great guy called Tom Pirelli whose actually going to be one of the assistant attorney generals now.”

“He’s the one who did most of the day to day work. Barack Obama was nowhere to be seen. Occasionally he would drop in he would talk to people, and then he’d leave again as though his very arrival had been a benediction in and of itself, but not very much got done.”

Mr. President, I stayed up until midnight last night, paying bills, juggling and crunching the numbers, trying to decide which bills would be paid this week and which ones could wait until my next paycheck. I finally settled on paying all but two, and had to scalp money from my daughter’s disability check to cover what I couldn’t carry. But that’s ok, really......because, you see, I have hope, and I’m hoping for some change. You told me to do that. You promised me that life would be better. You should hear my friends......one has a husband who just lost his job of 20+ years. Two of them just got new jobs, but have more than a years worth of bills to catch up. Another friend has been out of work for over a year, still unemployed. They just whine and complain all the time. But not me, no-siree. I have hope. I just listed some furniture on craigslist, and I’m getting my silver service appraised so I can sell that too. And if worse comes to worst, I still have my parents wedding bands. So you see.....I have hope.....I hope for some change.

Aw-w-w-w-w, is that great big king sized bed on Air Force One not comfy enough for Dear Leader? Congress had better launch a full investigation to see if a new beddie-by can be included in the HealthCare bill, as surely a good rest for Dear Leader is a prime health care concern.

Meanwhile, on the flights filled with mere peasants, they must stay in their cramped seats and keep their hands on their laps waiting to see if Janet baby allowed another terrorist, er freedom fighter, er isolated incident freedom fighter, on board to blow them all up.

All of us—including me. Oh yes, some of us whined about it and even wrote about it. But, in the end all we did was watch this train coming for 60 years and hope that “someone” would do something.

Surely people smarter than me figured out that the demrat left had a plan—probably conceived in the 1948-1953 time period—to coopt: US Supreme Court, education, labor unions, organized religion, media, targeted business leadership and the GOP. It succeeded in every case. Although the Supreme Court was at least neutralized during the Bush presidency. It remains to be seen whether or not that will hold up.

It should be apparent to anyone with an iota of intelligence that the GOP, post Reagan, is essentially an arm of the Demrat Party. But too many otherwise good people want to think that, essentially, nothing has changed in America after the Marxist Onada’s usurption of the US presidency.

The stark truth is that no one is going to fix the assault on America and our Constitution but individual
Americans like you and me.

Tea Parties fall a year ago represented the awakening. That movement was sustained by the Washington, DC, rally this summer. That resistance—despite the rats controlling WH, House and Senate—has virtually stalled Onada’s Marxist agenda.

But there are still too many people sitting it out. Think what can be achieved if all of us, who believe in what made this country great, stand up to be counted now. How much effort does it take to make a phone call, send an email, send money and/or actively support conservative candidates or even attend a Tea Party. That’s chump change compared to what American patriots gave to birth This country.

Personally, I will die rather than submit to an illegitimate Marxist Government telling me it will manage my health care, require me to buy health insurance or pay for abortions. I view abortion as murder. I will not abide a government edict requiring me to aid and abet the crime.

Carol, Carol, Carol. Did you ever maybe, just maybe, come to the conclusion that the man wasn’t capable of doing the work involved in heading the Harvard Law Review? Maybe, just maybe, you silly liberals were so inebriated with political correctness that you installed a complete slacker into the position on the sole fact that he was, er, a member of your preferred color?

Carol, I humbly suggest you go to the nearest public library and read The Peter Principle. I hope there aren’t too many words in it too big for you.

Hey, it is not easy destroying a country as great as the USA. Nationalizing banks, car companies, and the health care system; while replacing elected officals with appointed czars. I mean it is tiresome to have to stop and let every TV and news journalist lick your boots everytime you walk out doors.
