Skip to comments.Stay warm out there! Obama soaks up the sun as Snowzilla storms up the East Coast
Posted on 01/02/2014 6:53:45 PM PST by tellw
President Obama hit the links and enjoyed high temps in Hawaii as a massive blizzard bore down on much of the Midwest and the Northeast, and meteorologists predict the storm could tie traffic, cut power and give headaches to 40 million or so Americans.

Do we really want Obozo involved in this?
Yeah. Sure "they" are.
the official golf cart of the Caliph of the United States?
You will NOT be seeing any “pool photos” of him on this trip, guaranteed.
It’s not that he is on vacation - it’s that we are on vacation from him!
Snowzilla? Oh please.
Every stupid storm is now some gigantic catastrophe per all media. Even worse Weather Channel is naming snowstorms like hurricanes and some other outlets are starting to accept that.
Let Bammy poop a few more golf balls. Maybe he could TeaBag them.
I think that's the result of their being purchased by NBC to use as a propaganda tool. And it works! I've seen poorly educated youts post on the internet "they had to start naming these storms because they are so much stronger than before climate change".
I noticed that too. Also, the Weather Channel is starting to become more like a TV show. There’s reality shows of weather. They are entertainizing the weather.
I'm in Chelmsford, MA tonight and it's one degree and snowing. No big deal. It what normally happens around here in January. We might get 10 inches but it's so light I can push it off my driveway with a broom. I got the fireplace going and it's toasty warm here. I have a generator gassed up and ready to fire up just in case the lights go out.
I've lived in New England almost 50 years and never once has a storm kept me indoors for more than a couple days. All these morons watching the "special reports" on the TV, getting all alarmed and making panicked runs to the supermarket for milk and bread. I have enough food in my house to last at least a month and that's always been the case. Like I said, no storm, not even the blizzard of 1978, kept me snowbound more than a couple days. As for the current one, I'll be out and about in the morning.
Why we wont publish photos issued by the White House
By Sandra Duerr
December 5, 2013
As journalists, we strive to offer independent coverage whether its breaking news, investigative stories, and individual or business profiles, for example. That includes photos.
Yet the White House has imposed what news organizations, including The Tribune, believe are unprecedented limitations on photojournalists covering President Barack Obama.
Instead of allowing journalists to cover some public events, its banning them then releasing its own photos and videos, using social media to help spread the word.
Journalists are routinely being denied the right to photograph or videotape the president while he is performing his official duties, according to the recent letter sent by 38 news organizations to the White House, the Associated Press reported. As surely as if they were placing a hand over a journalists camera lens, officials in this administration are blocking the public from having an independent view of important functions of the executive branch of government.
Amen,the press makes a big deal of nothing 24/7 because they have no news but a little snowfall in an area of the country that normally has it.The blizzard of 78 never stopped me in the least either even with the national guard all over the roads.
I’m more southern but we have some snow like this all the time. Worst is how people go to stores as you said. I don’t get it. Lived through several actual blizzards here, none has ever made us pack in for more than a couple days. All of us have plenty provisions for that. Even the great winter of ‘09-’10 - record single fall of 33” in 1 day and so on - and great icy winter of ‘93-’94 did not keep us down for long.
“We might get 10 inches but it’s so light I can push it off my driveway with a broom.”
You have a heck of a broom! I would need my Ariens snowblower for 10 inches!
Sun, Mon and Tues are going to be cold here in s.e. Wisconsin. Right now the forecast says that Monday’s high will be -10 F.
When the temperature is cold like it is (near zero), the snow has the consistency of cotton candy. When I got off work today, I could just about blow the snow off my car.
Cold here in Iowa. 21 below by Sunday night in northern Iowa. Where are you Al Gore?
Hey, so long as obamaramadingdong and his family can vacation and relax on the taxpayers dime while the rest of America struggles to survive it’s OK.
He deserves this fun and relaxation, fighting for ‘the middle class’ is tiring.
Everyone have affordable health care yet?
I just remembered - Snowmageddon! What happened to that? Now it’s Snowzilla! Was there also a snowcopolypse?
Ridiculous. Just 4 years ago they didn’t come up with all this name and nickname hooplah, and that was 1 of the biggest ever.
I wish Pele (the Hawaiian god of volcanos, not the soccer player) would erupt a volcano and cover the Obamas with lava.
Is that a urinal holder next to the Usurper?
We got dusted with snow this evening must be the
lower edge of the storm.
Dahlonega Ga. 20 degrees now.
It is a snow storm. We in the Midwest get them all the time, and we don’t go bleating on CNN about how bad it is.
This is a local issue, not a national one. The TPOTUS doesn’t need to be involved, other than it makes golf hard.
I do have one question. In every Midwestern and Western state I have lived in, everyone runs to the store and buys bread and milk before it hits. Doesn’t matter where you came from (a Korean friend of mine did it in college, thinking there was some sort of cultural mandate to do so). Yet most of the time it is not needed. We buy groceries ahead anyway, and a few days stuck at home isn’t a big deal. Does the same thing happen out East?
My little sister was the result of the ‘78 storm hitting Nebraska. I came from the blizzard of 1974.
Another one of those Midwestern traditions that I suspect is worldwide. When the snow hits, you find ways to pass the time.
“...everyone runs to the store and buys bread and milk before it hits...Does the same thing happen out East?”
Yes, absolutely. That is a cute story about your Korean friend, btw.
Today hubby and I went to do our “emergency” shopping, we bought 3 kinds of bread, milk (even though we don’t need it, and a gallon because I guess hubby was in full storm anxiety mode), chips, dip and 2 kinds of cookies!
This happened after the attacks of 9/11/01 too and some were mocked for it. But I had no food and I was tasked with “rescuing” my friend’s elderly mom, as neither daughter could get to her. And I had to go to the weirdo supermarket because the A & P parking lot was filled with people who were blocked from crossing the Bridge between Bayonne, NJ and Staten Island, NY.
It was the only time I was in that store, such a surreal day.
I was going to say I guess it’s just some atavistic scarcity fear, but I read the thing written by the guy over at Glenn Beck’s The Blaze, about how he got frozen in for over 3 days in Dallas, and really did have no food. He had to risk his neck to get some, I had no idea an ice storm could hang around that long.
Gosh, I hope FEMA gets here soon with the pizza. I’m starving.
Pretty much. Carts full of bread, milk, eggs and TP. Sometimes HUGE amounts of one or more of the four.
If you are actually there doing your normal non storm-panic-driven shopping, it's somewhere between amusing and annoying.
Forecast high of -20 on Sunday here in God’s Country. Right now I think God is mad at us.
It was PACKED. We are expecting -25 F over the weekend, and people want to get their shopping done so they don't have to go outside.
It was NUTS!
As for running out of food. I grew up in the country, so I can't honestly picture that. We have two chest freezers, filled with meat and veggies. Not to mention the canned carrots and red sauce. We may run out of milk, but I have never ran out of food. The closest I have ever gotten was in college where we ended up eating Chef Boradi (sp) for a few days because we ran out of money.
But in the city, I can see it being an issue. My sister lives in Chicago, and they don't have the room for the type of food storage that we do.
He just has a unique sense of humor.
Remember that boat stuck in the ice? It was a cruise packed with climatologists going down to study global warming.
God is funny.
“Just trying to get some yogurt...”
You are lucky you weren’t shopping at our local grocery store. The yogurt was almost all gone! Don’t know what flavors were left, but certainly the most unpopular ones. All kinds, sold out!
Also, the eggs were almost gone, all that remained of the Eggland’s Best were a few opened carton, all with at least one broken egg. We were able to buy the store brand, so that was OK for us.
Some of the produce and bread was also in skimpy supply. I don’t know if some of their deliveries got stuck out west due to weather or if folks just went nuts purchasing.
We have all that we need food wise, and we thank the Good Lord, and our hardy workers at Shoprite!
“the press makes a big deal of nothing 24/7 because they have no news but a little snowfall”
There is plenty of news that should be headlined but it does not fit their agenda.
Just when is that lazy, self-centered, Marxist going to get back to the job WE THE PEOPLE are PAYING him to do? How I hope the Republicans gain control of the Senate and maintain control of the House. Impeach and convict the bleeder so he can do what he’s doing in that picture as much as his black communistic heart wants to.
HA HA LOL!
