Big party week for the Obamas (Two major galas and reception - Let them eat cake!)
The Hill ^ | September 12, 2010 | Christina Wilkie

Posted on 09/12/2010 4:11:56 PM PDT by maggief

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama have a packed social schedule this week, with two major galas and a reception for college athletes.

On Monday evening, the President will welcome collegiate star athletes to the White House for a reception at 5:45 p.m. The annual event, first held by former President George W. Bush, recognizes outstanding student athletes in more than a dozen sports, including field-hockey, lacrosse, and volleyball. Neither of Obama's alma maters, Columbia University and Harvard University, made the grade.

On Wednesday the First Couple will don black tie for the annual Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute gala, one of the more entertaining political galas of the Washington fall season. A number of entertainers are being honored with awards, including Eva Longoria Parker, five-time Grammy winner Arturo Sandoval, and musician Sheila E. Also participating in the festivities will be Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Hopefully the Obamas get some rest Thursday or Friday, because they will be back in formalwear on Saturday night for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's (CBCF) annual Phoenix Awards dinner. The dinner will mark the culmiantion of the foundation's 40th Annual Legislative Conference.

There sure isn't. Barak and his wife define welfare recipients. We just get to pay the bill.

Kings and Queens have lost their heads for less but a surefire way to end up headless or out of office in this case is to party while people are hurting. This arrogant piece of crap needs one right upside the head!

That chart isn’t exactly an indictment of Obama, considering that a lot of the job loss occurred under George W. Bush, and, moreover, seems to indicate that the nature of recessions is changing for the worse as far as the job market goes, as we’ve seen the 4th, 3rd, second, and most-bad job recoveries in the 4th-most, 3rd-most, second-to-most, most-recent recessions, respectively (and, all of them starting under Republican Presidents, alas).

Today’s Pelosi-Obama fund-raising solicitation
By Michelle Malkin • September 10, 2010 09:51 AM
Just arrived in the e-mail box:

Michelle –

I am more confident than ever that we will retain our Democratic House Majority, as long as we stand together in these final weeks.

Our next wave of advertising could help secure Democrats in toss-up races — but I need your continued support to make it happen.

That’s why as a thank you for all you have done so far, I want to offer you a special opportunity to enter to win a chance to join President Obama and myself at a dinner in New York City on September 22nd.

Enter for a chance to win a trip to New York (airfare and hotel included). You and your guest will be my guests at a dinner with President Obama on September 22nd.

Thank you for all you have done. I am counting on you to continue to stand with me in these final critical days.

Onward to victory.

Nancy Pelosi
Speaker of the House

P.S. Please enter today — you could be part of our historic gathering in New York City and meet President Obama.

Given Speaker Mop and Glo’s public snarking about the promise-breaker-in-chief, it should be a fun-filled night.

What a stupid analysis.

The DEMS got into the Majority after the 2006 elections.

The ‘Mess’ O inherited was Give to him - By the Dems who put people like Barney Franks in charge of things.

The Great economical time that Dems take credit for under Slick Willy - were brought on BY Republicans who held the senate and house in Clinton’s second term.

If GW had had the miserable jobs creation record this wantabe has done so far - Everyone would be shouting for GW’s head - including you - obviously!


During the Bush years, despite the
* 2000 Recession,
* the attacks on 9-11,
* the stock market scandals, (World.com, Enron, etc.)
* Hurricane Katrina, other hurricanes like Rita
* California fires,
* and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan,

the Bush Administration was able to reduce the budget deficit from 412 billion dollars in 2004 to 162 billion dollars in 2007, ** a sixty percent drop.

In 2004 the federal budget deficit was 412 billion dollars. In 2005 it dropped to 318 billion dollars. In 2006 the deficit dipped to 248 billion dollars. And, in 2007 it fell below 200 billion to 162 billion dollars.

**During the Bush years the average unemployment rate was 5.2 percent, the economy saw the strongest productivity growth in four decades and there was robust GDP growth. The consumer confidence was at its highest.

Not only were more jobs lost after the 9-11 attacks in 2001 than in the 2008 market crash, but more jobs were Created by President Bush’s pro-business policies and tax cuts than by the Obama-Pelosi “spend your way to hell” failure.

The Foundry reported, via HotAir:

For objective observers the failure of President Obama’s $862 billion stimulus has become increasingly difficult to deny.
