Obama: 'Looks Like I'm Going to Be Spending New Year's Here in D.C.' Daniel Halper December 31, 2012 2:12 PM
President Barack Obama tipped his hand today during a speech at the White House ... about how he plans to spend this New Year's Eve.
"Democrats and Republicans in Congress have to get this done," Obama said, according to a rush transcript, referencing the ongoing "fiscal cliff" talks. "But they're not there yet. They are close, but they're not there yet. And one thing we can count on with respect to this Congress is that if there is even one second left before you have to do what you're supposed to do, they will use that last second."
Obama then veered into his New Year's Eve plans. "So as of this point, it looks like I'm going to be spending New Year's here in D.C.," he said. "You all are going to be hanging out in D.C. too."
"I can come to your house? Is that what you said?" the president said, playing off the friendly White House audience. "I don't want to spoil the party. But the -- the people who are with me here today, the people who are watching at home, they need our leaders in Congress to succeed. They need us -- they need us to all stay focused on them, not on politics, not on, you know, special interests. They need to be focused on families, students, grandmas, you know, folks who are out there working really, really hard, and are just looking for a fair shot."
Aw... Cry me a river, Bronco.
My son-in-law has to work tonight, so I'm going to miss a knee-walking, turf-chewing, standard issue, one each, New Year's party with him.
I even had bail money tucked away.
The moron is playing them like a violin, the fools are going to lose.
wanna bet Reggie and the dog will keep him company...
He's spoiled mine for four years and looks like much of the same for the next four to infinity and beyond.
Looks like the rest of us will be spending next year in the poorhouse.
Tough hop, Skippy.
can we take up a collection to send him somewhere else (Kenya, Indonesia, Uranus....)?
Sorry Barry. No one forced you to run for president (Did they?)! IMHO, at least half of those living in this country would prefer you went somewhere else for New Year’s.
Maybe someone should tell Obama ,that the job is 24/7/365
Millions will be spending it hoping to find a job.
More "Folks-waggin'" by Obama .... reminds me of another "Leader".
Michelle and the kids.... 4000 miles away.
Tons of parties.
Gay Bathhouses within walking distance.
Those SS guys really know how to party.
The Benghazi deal has been successfully shoved under the carpet.
I'd say things are going really well for him.
Being President is such a drag.
“Understand yourself and understand your opponents, and in one hundred battles, you will not be defeated.”
pobrecito.....has to remain stuck in the nation’s capital.....let’s have a pity party. One....two....three...boo hoo.
Has this spoiled brat ever worked a day in his life at a REAL job?????
We live in a Third World Banana Republic that has been taken over by a tyrant elected by uninformed voters. Since I lived in a couple of those places..I recognize the symptoms. Every night the news leads with..”Today Pres Obama..blah blah blah”. Every newspaper leads with “Pres. Obama Today...blah blah blah.”. And the uniformed leeches eat it up...more money and things for them. While the President pretends to destroy the rich...he secretly rewards his cronies.
My thoughts, exactly.
He seemed rather giddy, didn’t he?
Now that I'm older, more gray and "an expert", I'm always on call if a problem becomes complicated. Yes, cry me a river!
I seem to have misplaced my tiny violin, otherwise I’d play him a sad little song.
There are a lot of people who’d appreciate spending New Year’s Eve in a huge historic mansion with staff, cooks, and flowing champagne all paid for. You should fall down and pray thanks that abortions were hard to get in 1961 or you wouldn’t be there to party at all.
Maybe he will invite Kagin over for a bite to eat.
Should’a thought of that when you were splashing around in Hawaii a week ago, DB. The Republicans should never repeat the massive mistake that this fiscal cliff deal represented. It went wrong in so many ways, and they made the fatal error of assuming some good faith on the other side.
He’s as predictable as the sunrise.
Do what you usually do Bambi. Pretend you’re working. Go to the Oval Office and watch re-runs of Homeland.
Poor guy has to put up with that rascally Congress.
What's even more infuriating is to think that this BS works on people.
Yeah, because you're so critical to the process.
I wish you were spending it in Leavenworth, you #@!$%!#.
What a narcissistic loser.
With any luck next year at this time it will either be in eastern Kansas or southeastern Cuba.
Hey Oblunder - want some cheese with at whine?
Looking forward to the day when the scoundrel leaves DC for good. Unfortunately, thanks to the dumb masses, he has 4 more years to befoul the White House.

Ain’t that the truth. Barack’s mother would never have wanted to be punished with a baby. . . . but, alas, she obviously was.
Had it been legal in 1963, doubt I would have been here either ....or my kids. What a thought that is of how this has affected multiple generations of people who were supposed to be here, but just aren’t.
As Livia Soprano would say, “Poor you!”
**sigh** too many people never think this way
Trust me, I did everything I could think to do to get the miserable bastard out of DC.
Boo hoo, Obama. No Hawaii golfing for you.
My heart bleeds. Living in the White Hut, all that home brew and 24/7 room service. Oh yeh, a bowling alley, pool, movie theatre and if you get bored just hop on marine One and scoot over to Camp David.
Whiner. There are all kinds of people who aren’t on vacation tonight in Hawaii at someone else’s expense.
Man up, you selfish sissy.
Muzzies celebrate new years?
