  • Obamas Spend Valentine’s Day Apart, Again (Mooch sends a tweet)

    02/15/2015 3:57:01 AM PST · by Libloather · 22 replies
    (WASHINGTON) -- For a second consecutive year, President Obama won't be with Michelle on Feb. 14. And for a second consecutive year, he'll be on a trip to Palm Springs -- one of his favorite destinations over the past couple years -- playing golf and bro-ing out with high-school buddies. Obama landed on the West Coast on Thursday to attend the White House's cybersecurity summit at Stanford, and he traveled on to Palm Springs Saturday, where he'll stay at a private residence without the first family, according to the White House, until Monday, when he'll return to D.C. Though the...

    **SNIP** What does a bodyman do? Dubbed Obama’s “chief of stuff” in the news media, Love explains the job like this: “I was his DJ, his Kindle, his travel agent, his valet, his daughters’ basketball coach, his messenger, his punching bag, his alarm clock, his vending machine, his chief of stuff, his note passer, his spades partner, his party planner, his workout partner, his caterer, his small forward, his buffer, his gatekeeper, his surrogate son, and ultimately, his friend.” Early-morning workouts, food and, yes, basketball helped bring them together. They e-mailed each other stat lines from top NBA point guards...

    During his time as a personal aide, Reggie Love developed a very personal bond with Barack Obama. The 'bodyman' stuck with him during the 2008 presidential campaign and during his first years in the White House. But there is perhaps one moment where their working relationship became slightly awkward. Love recounts how he was staying in a hotel during the presidential campaign when he had a female friend from college to stay - and the then Senator Obama barged in.

    A convicted white-collar criminal once connected to some of America’s most prominent political families pleaded guilty in federal court on Monday to stealing more than $1 million from multiple south Louisiana car dealerships over a three-year period, billing them for advertising services never rendered and sweeping the fees into his own bank accounts. Raymond Christopher Reggie, a Mandeville businessman who previously worked on many high-profile Democratic campaigns, including those of former President Bill Clinton, agreed to a guilty plea in Baton Rouge federal court to five counts of mail fraud related to the illegal billing scheme, the U.S. Attorney’s Office...

    Soaking up the finally pleasant weather, the conversation eventually turned to Love’s time at the White House, which sounded a lot less pleasant. Love compared working inside the White House to being on a sinking ship. “I had this great journey, but I was just a passenger,” he told his dining companion. ”I was by no means steering the ship. I was bailing out the water.” The restaurant’s employees seemed well-acquainted with Love. He made small talk with them about his golf game. Occasionally, he let out a loud, delightful laugh in the warm, spring air. Getting luckier by the...

    Desperate to distract from the ongoing Obamacare disaster, alleged marital discord between Barack and Michelle Obama is being strategically leaked by White House insiders, and beginning to break into the mainstream media via familiar channels. Anyone who stood in a supermarket checkout line last week (a sizable portion of the adult female population, and not inconsiderable portion of the males) saw the National Enquirer cover story blaring allegations of a screaming match between the Obamas in the wake of Michelle's star-studded fiftieth birthday party. That story has now broken into the  mainstream media via the world's most popular English...

    Obama’s love of TV is in keeping with childhood. By his own admission, Obama watched an enormous amount of television while growing up with his TV-loving grandfather in Hawaii. According to Obama’s memoir, he watched TV – cartoons, reruns, then sitcoms – pretty much from the moment he came home until the moment he went to bed at night. His grandfather was a big fan of Johnny Carson, and even after Obama went off to Occidental College, he continued in his grandfather’s footsteps. He would often get together with friends to watch Johnny Carson’s opening monologue on The Tonight Show....

He teed off at one of the base courses with friends Marty Nesbitt, Marvin Nicholson and Michael Brush. After a couple of hours, enough to probably play nine holes, Obama had his motorcade whisk him to the Verizon Center sports arena, where Syracuse defeated Marquette to advance to the semifinals of the...

It was his first domestic trip without Reggie Love, the former Duke University basketball player who had been his constant companion and presidential “body man” until he left in November to study for his M.B.A. full time. “I miss him,” the president confessed. More noteworthy than Mr. Obama’s spending the short flight calling his longtime aide is what he...

      May Flies Into June BugsMay 12, 2005 The Washington Post is wasting its clairvoyance on the “news”...they should be picking lottery numbers.  Post writer, Mark Leibovich, was savvy enough to realize that when friends are planning a tribute in your honor, “you know you're in trouble”.  Did he have the “Hollywood Gala Salute to President William Jefferson Clinton" in mind when he penned this wisdom?  Oh, that’s right...this Hollywood “Gala” was really a crooked fundraiser for Madame Hillary’s 2000 Senate campaign.  No..No, he was referring to this week’s testimonial “The Conservative Movement Salutes Tom DeLay”. Of course, unlike the crooked Clinton...

    May 11, 2005 -- WASHINGTON — As the trial of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's former chief fund-raiser opened yesterday, it was revealed that one of her closest aides — always by her side when she ran for Senate — could be a key player in the case. She's Kelly Craighead, who was Clinton's ever-present travel director and close pal — so close that the former first lady performed the 2001 civil ceremony when Craighead wed Erick Mullen, a former aide to Sen. Chuck Schumer. Craighead's name surfaced as jury selection began in the federal trial in Los Angeles of Clinton's...

    With the trial of a key finance official on Senator Clinton's 2000 campaign set to open tomorrow, a secretly recorded audiotape at the core of the case could prove embarrassing to politicians, political operatives, and wealthy donors to the Democratic Party. David Rosen, 40, faces three felony counts of causing the filing of false campaign finance reports in connection with a celebrity-studded fund-raiser and concert held in August 2000 at a radio executive's estate in the Brentwood hills above Los Angeles. Prosecutors have asserted that the true cost of the gala was more than $1 million but that Mr. Rosen...

    FReepers, it is an amazing thing to witness. I'm about an hour from Los Angeles and plan to go to the David Rosen trial on Tuesday. I have been on the phone calling radio news stations and local TV affiliates in Los Angeles to see if they were covering the story. No one knows about the story. How can that be possible? Not even KFWB knows, the main news radio station in Los Angeles. The mainstream media is going to have to be dragged kicking and screaming into covering this story. It has the potential to derail Queen Hillary's run...

Hillary Rodham Clinton's fund-raiser admitting that a Hollywood gala may have cost way more than her filings said......... Clinton fund-raiser David Rosen told Kennedy in-law Ray Reggie over dinner that a donor is claiming "he spent $2 million on an event that raised $1.4. . . . He may have," The Times-Picayune of New Orleans reported.

    Reggie trying to get officer impersonation charge tossed By The Associated Press TGRETNA -- A Democratic Party operative who is the brother-in-law of U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy has asked a state judge to throw out a charge accusing him of impersonating a police officer in suburban New Orleans in June 2002. Raymond Reggie's attorney, Mike Ellis, contends in court documents that the two-year time limit to bring the case to trial expired June 21. But prosecutor Kim McElwee said she has until October to try the case. At issue is what court events stop the clock on Reggie's right to...

    April 23, 2005 Ted Kennedy's Female Troubles There are times when I feel sorry for Ted Kennedy. He was born to play a Falstaffian role, ill-suited and ill-trained for the role destiny thrust upon him. And yet he muddles on, flailing from one scandal and misstep to another, constantly chafing under the ill-fitting crown given him as the champion of liberalism. Edward Moore Kennedy, Sr., was the last of nine children of an incredibly powerful and driven man, and from the outset it was clear little was expected of him. The fourth of four sons, he could tell from the...

    Can we now refer to Ted Kennedy's brother-in-law as the Donnie Brasco of the national Democratic Party? Donnie Brasco was the FBI agent who infiltrated one of the Mafia families in New York. After he was finally outed, the boys were not pleased with the hood who had sponsored him, Sonny Black. It wasn't pretty when the garbage bag containing Sonny washed up on the shore of Sheepshead Bay. Of course the Kennedys are above that sort of retribution. They don't sleep with the fishes. They just drink like them. But this Ray Reggie story is very embarrassing to the...
