President party boy
NY Post ^ | 6-10-10 | John Gibson

Posted on 06/10/2010 2:50:16 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

Last week's jobs report tanked the stock market; the president took weeks to assert control of the oil spill that threatens doom on the Gulf Coast -- but at the White House the Gatsby-like parties roll on as if happy days were here again.

Just yesterday, President Obama held another fun-filled White House event, a picnic for Congress members, complete with hot dogs, cold beverages and a fire pit.

All told, during the last seven weeks of spewing oil and rampant unemployment, he has frolicked and danced through three major White House music parties:

It is familiar to him since he spends so much time with his voo-doo practicing mother-in-law and well-known Satanist Sasha Fierce (aka Beyonce) and Jay-Z. (JMO of course - Google is your friend)

I've said it before, and I'll say it again-- Kommander ZerØ's "_Residency" is a laughable mixture of:

And "Movin' On Up!"

This:



( Yes, he actually can fly jet fighters... )

Versus this:

God help us all...

Unfortunately, for all of us,

Say what you want about Dubya, but he never frolicked.

As I recall some writers during the Bush era complained there wasn’t enough fun and elegance coming from the White House. The social atmosphere was poor, they said. The TX cowboy and his prim librarian wife were in bed so early there weren’t enough glamorous White House parties, the elite media said. But if the Bushes had put on as much glitz as these two do now, the condemnation would have been fierce.

Uncaring, Incompetent, Elitist, and Out of Touch






Media fail repeatedly to mention the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 giving POTUS complete responsibility for immediate action in cleaning up an oil spill.

He also found time to pick the Lakers to win the NBA championship, and to comment on the umpire’s call that cost the Tigers’ pitcher a perfect game. Later today we’ll get his position on Texas leaving the Big 12.... Not to worry though - he’s furious, wants to plug the damn hole, and is kicking ass.

One way or another, We, the People, are paying the bill for the events in every one of those pictures. Which reminds me of something I learned early on: Education is never free.

Learning about obama and progressives has been the most expensive education in American history. Over $13 TRILLION and counting and counting and counting....

What have we learned other than it's all Bush's fault?

“What have we learned other than it’s all Bush’s fault?”

Only that we can’t trust the press to do their job when the subject is a charismatic, smooth talking person “of color”.

More and more I’m thinking the MSM is managed by a cabal of two year olds...

Perhaps he’s beginnnig to see the handwriting on the wall . . .

that he was put in place to be a stooge fall-guy

SCAPEGOAT

for when he succeeds in crashing the Republic down around everyone’s ears as he was assigned to do.

So, he’s partying while he can . . . realizing that hell has no parties.

According to Laura Bush the first family gets a weekly bill for meals. Obama has figured out how to party for the PEOPLE and remove that little bill from his cash flow.

This is what the Marxist/Muslim has done with American tax dollars while Americans lose their jobs and homes:

Obama’s 2009 Supplemental Appropriations for Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Pandemic Flu was revised and “passed by the full committee.” Not sure what the next step is, but based on the summary, it gives billions http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2009/05/13/obamas-supplemental-bill-passes-gives-billions-to-enemies/
of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support Sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies.

Read the summary from David Obey’s office that was quietly released last week with nary a word from any media.

• $3.6 billion, matching the request, to expand and improve capabilities of the Afghan security forces

• $400 million, as requested, to build the counterinsurgency capabilities of the Pakistani security forces

• Afghanistan: $1.52 billion, $86 million above the request

• West Bank and Gaza: $665 million in bilateral economic, humanitarian, and security assistance for the West Bank and Gaza

• Jordan: $250 million, $250 million above the request, including $100 million for economic and $150 million for security assistance

• Egypt: $360 million, $310 million above the request, including $50 million for economic assistance, $50 million for border security, and $260 million for security assistance

• Pakistan: $1.9 billion, $591 million above the request

• Iraq: $968 million, $336 million above the request

• Oversight: $20 million, $13 million above the request, to expand oversight capacity of the State Department, USAID, and the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan to review programs in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq

• Lebanon: $74 million

• International Food Assistance: $500 million, $200 million above the request, for PL 480 international food assistance to alleviate suffering during the global economic crisis

• Refugee Assistance: $343 million, $50 million above the request, …including humanitarian assistance for Gaza. Funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency programs in the West Bank and Gaza is limited to $119 million (Note: Gaza = Hamas)

• Disaster Assistance: $200 million to avert famines and provide life-saving assistance during natural disasters and for internally displaced people around the world, including Somalia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, the Middle East and South Asia

• Peacekeeping: $837 million for United Nations peacekeeping operations, including an expanded mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a new mission in Chad and the Central African Republic

• Department of Justice: $17 million, matching the request, for counter-terrorism activities and to provide training and assistance for the Iraqi criminal justice system

The mainstream media remains silent on this but the International News has now picked up the story http://www.thenews.com.pk/top_story_detail.asp?Id=22164
— and then there is Obama’s $108 billion IMF bailout scheme http://michellemalkin.com/2009/05/13/obamas-100-billion-imf-bailout-scheme/
in addition to the Supplemental.

Last weekend, Vice President Joe Biden and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel held a "super soaker" squirt-gun party at the veep's residence. Everybody ran around giggling and shooting squirt guns at each other. Members of the press covering Biden joined in, to their shame.

Wow.

This is one mental picture I did NOT need.

The media also didn’t comment on his pronouncement early on in this catastrophe on his 1st trip to N.O. (long before the oil ever came near shore) when he said that it distrubed him to see “birds flying around with oil all over them.”

1. There were no oil soaked birds at that time. The oil wasn’t even on the surface yet.

2. Birds don’t “fly around with oil all over them”. They are crippled & grounded after they are soaked.

What an ignoramus.

And he tore down a tree Reagan had planted. Word is that there’s a bunch of ‘upgrades’ going on electronically, the most since Truman. I think there’s supposed to be some kind of underground space under construction, too.

Das bunker.

This month the Conde Nast Traveler has a cover story on “Michelle Obama’s Washington”. They actually take time away from this multi-page Michelle puff piece to trash the Bushes exactly like you said, “They’re in bed by 9:30” and “...being from Texas, they would never go to the trendy restaurants the Obamas love in D.C.’s colorful gay neighborhood”. It was stunning.

Articles suggest it’s ‘temporary,’ but there isn’t anything about them being replanted: http://www.salon.com/wires/politics/02/20/D9E028J80_us_white_house_trees/index.html

Along with one that W had planted that “did not take” and a 100-year old tree:

“The loss of this historic Rosaceae Prunus, which has stood tall for more than a century at the White House, is sad. But to announce this destructive policy at the start of Earth Month is an insult,” American Forests Executive Director Deborah Gangloff said in a statement e-mailed to reporters. “Why, oh why, would President Obama do this on April 1?”
