Obama never takes a day off (Tell it to his caddy!)
Politico.com ^ | June 14, 2011 | Politico

Posted on 06/14/2011 6:58:42 AM PDT by Astronaut

First lady Michelle Obama on Monday told a fundraiser in Southern California of the toll the presidency has taken on her husband Barack Obama.

"I see the sadness and worry that's creasing his face," she said to a crowd of about 500 at the Pasadena luncheon organized by the Southern California Women For Obama. She described his worth ethic as “tireless,” according to pool reports.

"He reads every word, every memo, so he is better prepared than the people briefing him," she said. "This man doesn't take a day off."

She said the next two years of campaigning would be difficult for the Obamas and their supporters. "It is not going to be easy, and it is going to be long," she said. "Now more than ever we need your help to finish what we started."

She also mentioned health care reform, the passage of the Lilly Ledbetter Act and the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. She praised "justice" in the killing of Osama bin Laden, and the withdrawal of troops from overseas.

Guests paid $1,000 per ticket to attend the event. This evening, she will speak at another fundraiser in Westwood.

Is Michelle one of those Chicago welfare mommas on the crack pipe? Barry never takes a day off? He's played more golf than any other president in history! He's always shootin' hoops with his rapper homies or flying off to Hawaii for a vacation. All the man does is goof off while the dollar collapses and unemployment soars.

...but only when he looks at his sinking poll numbers or realizes he can't get any more of his socialist agenda through the Republican congress.

“I so hate these people. Does she think we are really that stupid?”

The people that would vote Obama are that stupid. It’s textbook communist behavior, tell the people what you want them to hear, regardless of, and often in direct opposition to, the facts.

Both you AND your stupid husband can go f@ck yourselves. BOTH of you ASKED for this. It's not like your husband is a poor, uneducated coal miner working the only job reasonably available to him and struggling to make ends meet. Now THAT is real stress.

If it bothers you so much, tell him to QUIT.

But STOP the whining.

As I have been communicating to my friends for some time, the Republican campaign theme should center around the concept “ Voted for Obama in 2008, shame on him. Vote for Obama in 2012, shame on you” What a bunch of liars!

The real ‘tragedy’ of this POS story is that the FA’s at Politico NEVER question her statement. They merely insert their tongues into her arse hole and print it lie for lie! How do these Satan worshipers live with themselves? Unbelievable!

“ Voted for Obama in 2008, shame on him. Vote for Obama in 2012, shame on you”

The most encouraging thing for me is that Obama now has a record that he has to defend. Blaming the “evil” GWB won’t sway the independents. It will only play to his base, and they’ll vote Obama no matter what.

There are so many sound clips of him telling America what he was going to do to us if he got elected.

It shouldn’t be difficult to reach the independents. Without the MSM being totally in the tank for him, Obama would be toast.

CORRECTION:

“I see the sadness and worry that's creasing his face, BECAUSE HE HAS NOT SUCCEEDED IN MAKING AMERICA INTO A COMMUNIST STATE,” she said to a crowd of about 500 at the Pasadena luncheon organized by the Southern California Women For Obama AND AGAINST AMERICA. She described his worth ethic as NON-EXISTANT according to pool reports.

“He reads every word ON THE TELEPROMPTER, every memo IS READ TO HIM, SLOWLY, so he is better prepared than the people briefing him ?!?! ,” she said. “This man doesn't take a day off, EXCEPT WHEN HE'S GOLFING OR GOING ON VACATION OR HAVING A PIZZA STAFF FLOWN IN FROM ST. LOUIS.”
She said the next two years of campaigning would be difficult for the Obamas and their supporters. “It is not going to be easy, and it is going to be long,” she said. “Now more than ever we need your help to finish what we started-IT’S HARD TO WRECK A COUNTRY THAT'S BEEN STRONG FOR OVER 200 YEARS.”

She also mentioned health care reform(PROBABLY BEST NOT TO MENTION THIS-CONSIDERING THAT IT'S BEEN DECLARED UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND WILDLY UNPOPULAR, the passage of the Lilly Ledbetter Act and the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. She praised “justice” in the killing of Osama bin Laden, and the withdrawal of troops from overseas.

Guests paid $1,000 per ticket to attend the event SURPRISINGLY, NOT EVERYONE DEMANDED THEIR MONEY BACK. This evening, she will speak at another fundraiser in Westwood AND PRETEND TO SYMPATHIZE WITH THE WORKING POOR.

If true, he better learn to COMPREHEND what he reads....and being MORE prepared than those briefing him doesn't seem like it would be that hard a task, considering who HE has chosen to surround himself with.

Why the HECK (stronger word replaced) is he putting a golf ball on the Great Seal of the US in the Oval Office?

Can you imagine RR, GHWB, or W doing that? (Note I skipped Clinton — we all know what he did.)

Hmmmmm. I just told my boss that I was going golfing this afternoon, and that it was a precedent set by our president that golfing = work. My boss said that my trying to claim playing golf as the same as work = unemployment for me. I changed my mind.

I think this is revealing. Apparently, when Obama “works” on his golf game, that’s real work (taxpayer-financed, no less!) in Michelle’s book. For a duo that never appear to have done that much work in ANY job they’ve held, that point of view isn’t terribly surprising.

And the notion that reading every word of a memo then makes you more knowledgeable than the person who actually wrote it is ludicrous on its face.

They say if you repeat a lie enough times, it becomes the truth.

If she wants anybody to believe this one, Michelle had better start repeating this one... a LOT.

It's the mother of all horse-pucky.

The only sadness and worry troubling him is not getting a second term to screw things up even more. Can the word "malaise" in one of his speeches be far off?

Sadly these people have deceived themselves into believing their lies and think it is the truth. There is no hope for those in that situation as their lies are an addiction and incurable.

The only time the guy’s feet touch the ground is to hit the links or take a tour of some foreign city. He’s on Air Force One flying out of the country most of the time. He hasn’t spent as much time in the Oval Office as the cleaning crew.

She got paid over $300K a year to divert poor patients away from this university’s hospital — not exactly “reaching out” to the community. Such a nice lady.... NOT!

Fumigate Pasadena! One of my favorite little cities on earth. Fumigate the liberal slime of those 500 lib women! HURRY !QUICK!
