Skip to comments.Valerie Jarrett: Obama to Change Washington by Spending More Time Away (Oh Goody!!!)
Posted on 10/29/2012 6:49:15 PM PDT by smoothsailing
Senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said that in a second term, President Obama would change Washington by spending even more time away from D.C.
I think everybody grows. Everybody matures. Everybody develops their, you know, their confidence, Jarrett said of the first term in an interview airing this morning on MSNBC.
As I think one of the things that he has said upon reflection is that hes going to spend a lot more time traveling around the country, she said after a New Hampshire rally. A day like today is energizing, and the American people are hungry to be engaged and he wants to be able to spend more time doing it. And that will hold Congress accountable.
As you know, what we said in the last campaign was yes, we can, not yes, I can, for the president. He cannot take on these challenges alone. We need to keep the kind of crowd we had in New Hampshire, what weve seen all over the country. Going past the election, we need to win the election and then we need to move into a second term. And we need to bring our country forward together, Jarrett added.
Last month, Obama said the most important lesson learned in his first term is that you cant change Washington from the inside, prompting criticism from the Romney camp.
Jarrett reflected on going through this last campaign with her longtime friend Obama.
It is a little bit like I cant believe that this is the last time hell ever run for office again, she said. But then I know that we have four more years and a lot of hard work left to do. Right?
Hat Tip to Michelle Obama's Mirror
Zer0 already has an empty office chair.
After Jan.20, he’ll hardly ever be there, if this election comes out right....
True - he can change it a whole lot by never returning come January.
“Everybody develops their, you know, their confidence,
Spoken like a dummy. You know. No I don’t know. Apparently, neither does she.
Valerie: "C'mon, give me your poopy face.. Thaaat's it.."
Yeh, after Jan 20 Barry will in Hawaii which is as far as you can go and technically still be in America.
POTUS Valerie Jarrett
Zero is "Chance the Gardener" AKA RoTOTUS
But, but, but.... I thought Hawaii was in Asia.
Here all the time I thought he was voting “absent”, rather than “present”.
I never would have suspected he actually needed more time away; he has been away and out the loop more than any chief executive I recall.
He surfaces frequently to run his head ad nauseum, but seldom in an actual presidential setting.
Yeah, he and the Mooch all on the taxpayer’s dime!!! Mooch spent $10 million over the past 4 years. “Movin’ on up,” eh Mooch??!!
We are doing EVERYTHING we can to MAKE SURE he is NEVER in DC again!!!!
BO uses AF1 as his flying apartment. He spends more time on “his” plane than he does in the WH.
Truth be known, she is running the country anyway. She’s probably the one who gave the “stand down” orders.
Says it all.
I thought Obama was moving the capital to Chicago.

He’s absent even when he’s here.
If there's one thing Barky is good at, it's spending.
Wonder how many decisions Obama has really made for the U.S. or has he just been a puppet for his administration staff doing what they decided. Probably has no idea about any bills that he signed or directions given because he never had to think about them just following orders.
That expression reminds me of a scene in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Jarrett seems to meddle in everything, and in foregn affairs counsels weakness. I have to wonder if she is part of the Benghazi mess.
Yeah, that’s the ticket! He can “hook up with OJ Simpson” at every golf course in the world and look for Nicole’s “real” killer! Oh, I forgot, FUBO will have to search on his own, OJ is in the Nevada Penitentiary for the rest of his life! God Bless Nevada for doing what the idiots in SoCal couldn’t.
Once Romney and the new Attorney general REALLY investigate Fast and furious, and the Libyan coverup I bet he will have a hard time getting to see michelle and Valerie except through a pane of plexiglass.
"Voting present" vs "being absent". That is one of those wonderful pairs of special words (pseudopposites) in the English language such as "fat chance" vs "slim chance".
Scary that a communist bee-otch nobody had heard of 5 years ago and was never elected is now running the country.
This evil witch rides an Asswipe 2000 broom....
and deserves the stink eye..
Oh goody. Valerie got a new golf course built in Tehran?
If there’s a “red” in the closet, it is Jarrett. Too much of her past involves Communist Party USA members and collaborators.
One day, hopefully soon, she will be gone and the real investigations of her background will proceed unhindered.
At least now it's accurate.
