Obama, “Aloha From Hawaii – The Rest Of You Stay And Work” Open Thread

Yes, it is that time of year again, when Obama and Family head off to Hawaii for a bit of R&R. Obama’s SEVENTEEN day vacation is set to start on December 17th. His office said he had no public events planned. In other words, this is a total vacation from all of his hard work.

Cough. I could barely type that out.

I guess he will just have to drag himself off the golf course (he has already played 88 games in his short time in office). Who could forget this iconic picture of the adults in the room when Seal Team Six was going after Osama bin Laden, and Obama sitting there in his golf clothes (photo courtesy of geneveith.com):

So, while Obama is off vacationing in the sun and surf, he admonishes Congress to stay in town and get things worked out for the extended tax cuts, according to The Hill, while blaming the Republicans for everything (forgetting -again – that the Senate is controlled by Dems):

[snip] “We’re going to keep pushing Congress to make this happen,” Obama said. “They shouldn’t go home for the holidays until they get this done.”

The president called out congressional Republicans for stalling legislation aimed at helping create jobs and spur the economy.

“Unfortunately, too many Republicans in Congress don’t seem to share that same sense of urgency,” he said. “Over the last few months, they’ve said ‘no’ to most of these jobs bills. ‘No’ to putting teachers and firefighters back to work. ‘No’ to putting construction workers back on the job. And this week, they actually said ‘no’ to cutting taxes for middle-class families.” (Click here to read the rest.)

I don’t know about you, but it seems to me that it is a bit hard to take someone’s admonition to work harder when Obama has consistently been absent from the big decisions. He has been so busy campaigning on our dime, or hiding upstairs in his room, watching sports, that he is HARDLY in any position to criticize the working habits of anyone else. IMHO, that is.

I reckon while the rest of the nation is worrying about paying its bills, or where their next meal is coming from, or how they will be able to get toys for their kids, much less heat their houses, Obama will be kicking back drinking a Mai Tai with a cute little umbrella on the sunny sandy shores of Hawaii with this exhortation:

And if you can’t be happy with all that is going on in the nation, just do what Obama does – blame the Republicans!

    Better yet, why doesn’t he leave right away.   And congress can get themselves together and draw straws for the unpopular job of “Play the Patriot”.  Yes, like it or not, someone up in the House or Senate has to get the IM…………………………..Ment thing going, and while they’re at it, John Boehner needs to remember that he too is a patriot, and get the RETURN TO PRUDENT BANKING ACT HR 1489 passed and sent to the Senate.   Then a cabinet member who knows deep down in his heart that being a patriot trumps being a Judas, will invoke the 25th Amendment Section 4 to have President Obama to step down.  His mental state that led to the unfortunate remarks he made about how his children were going to be just fine in their gated community home and that the rest of Americans and America would collapse, is one that renders him unfit to govern.  It is just the tip of the iceberg.
    HR 1489 could pass the Senate and wind up on the desk in the Oval Office, and since Barack Obama will be taking “time out” this bill can be signed by a proxy, someone who is a tru patriot, and knows that the Glass Steagall standard is based on one of the fundamental principles government the USA, one that assures  credit and work on meaningful projects that will ensure employment and a decent standard of living for it’s citizens.   Thank goodness he will be gone soon, See ya, wouldn’t wanna be ya/

    Sen. Tom Coburn: I Will Have Difficulty Supporting Newt Gingrich as President of United States

      Tom Coburn worked under Gingrich for 5 years and you don’t want to take his advice on what kind of leader he was?  Gingrich is NWO scum and Tom Coburn was brave to come out and pronounce that Gingrich is undesirable.  He is just saying what is an underlying factor across the liberty movement of this county.  Gingrich will get ZERO votes from constitutionalists, libertarians, and evangelicals.  In short Newt loses anyone who sees him as a complete crook and cheater/liar.  They would all vote 3rd party first.  Newts very nature will cause a spit vote in the party. 

      So go ahead and support Newt.  But you do so at your peril.

        “Gingrich is NWO scum and Tom Coburn was brave to come out and pronounce that Gingrich is undesirable. He is just saying what is an underlying factor across the liberty movement of this county…”

        100% correct.  And I believe a higher percentage of Americans on the left understand the truth behind the New World Order, than conservatives, whose “media” have brainwashed them into thinking-against all reason-that the NWO is strictly some sort of exclusive “Democrat-only” club.

        So, if anyone is foolish enough to think that Gingrich is going to escape Soros-funded exposes into every nook and cranny of Gingrich’s existence on Earth, they’re in for a big surprise.

        They forget, that the Democratic operatives, from both “sides” of the party, already have a tremendous amount of research into his past escapades, and, I would think, no small number of “witnesses” willing to testify to such.

        Julie, do you think evangelicals will reject Gingrich en masse?  I wonder if at least some of them will put his moral terpitude and Catholicism aside to vote for him anyway, on the loose logic of the “ABO” block. 

        I would LOVE if all the disenchanted Barky voters and the righties who are disgusted with the low quality of these Republican candidates would all go third party, but I guess it’s too much to hope for.

    A friend of mine who is a chain smoker, Princeton product and Wall Street Banker, in that order leant me a copy of George Soros The New Paradigm for Financial Markets.  It confirms my previous judgment that the man is as brilliant as he is corrupt–which is to say–very.  And there is a clarity to his thinking that is absent in so much financial literature.  Suffice it to say I wish he was working for the American People rather than against  us–but that is a vain hope indeed. 

    The book reeks of stale tobacco, and I am holding it as far away as I can and still read it.

    Two particular paragraphs in the Introduction caught my eye.  We know from the analysis of Judge Posner that part of the root cause for the crash of 2008 was the failure of economists to see what was happening and restrain the Fed, which they did not do. Many of them were Ivy Leaguers.  The book is in a sense an attempt to address that problem going forward with a new paradigm so that future dynamics are predictable—by debunking the Ivy League theory of an efficent market and proposing a new one called the reflexivity of financial markets as the model for understanding how markets behave.  Beyond that he says this:

    “Cheap money engendered a housing bubble, an explosion of leveraged buy outs and other excesses.  WHEN MONEY IS FREE, THE RATIONAL LENDER WILL KEEP LENDING IT OUT UNTIL THERE IS NO ONE ELSE TO LEND TO.  Mortgage lenders relaxed their standards and invented new ways to stimulate business and generate fees. (snip)

    Banks sold off their riskiest mortgages by repackaging them into securities called collaterized debt obligations (CDOs). (snip) In practice, the banks and rating agencies grossly underestimated the inherent risks (snip). Securitization was meant to reduce risks through risk tiering and geographic diversification. As it turned out, they increased the risks by transferring ownership of mortgages who knew their customers to customers who did not. (snip) The securitization mania led to an enormous increase in the use of leverage (snip).  It was bound to end badly. (snip).

    He goes on to list the number of people–former members of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors who warned Greenspan both privately and publicly where this would lead, beginning over a decade earlier.  However, those concerns were conveniently swept aside but later became the financial sumnuai that tanked the system.  Whereupon the Federal Reserve who created the problem to begin with looted the American taxpayer to pay for their own gross negligence. 

    This opens the door to a question which is beginning to trouble me.  The people who created this problem are capable, I suppose, of creating a short term burst of economic prosperity at or near the time of the election, to re elect Obama and thereby give themselves four more years to complete the restructuring of the global economy.

    Merrill Lynch speaks tangentially to that issue in their latest report to customers: ‘We are in the midst of the most significant shift in global economic power in decades. During past periods of volatility we have always been able to count on financial markets getting back to normal–that is growth driven by a US centric global economy and guided by the firm hand of Western policies and institutions. This time however recovery will be a somewhat elusive term.  When we ask will the world economy settle down and return to the way it was.  The answer becomes clearer every day:  It won’t.

    (Note: This analysis coincides with something Soros was saying in 2008 when he said the US economy is kaput as the engine of world economic growth, and for that reason, he advocated an international reserve currency in its stead and place. If it comes to that, and eventually it will, then we will lose our ability to export our inflation to the world.)

    “Indeed, the extreme market jolts and torrent of bad news from the United States, Europe and Japan, combined with the stunning rise of developing economies are looking less like volatility and more like a major economic shift in the balance of world economic power. We are in a period where the economic paradigm which has existed for the past fifty years is tipping over.

    And while all this is occurring, we have a fundamental imbalance in wealth and political power in this nation.  I am not talking about rich vs poor which is the distraction served up to us by the elites as a justification to loot the middle class.  I am talking about the power disparity between the people in Washington and the rest of the country.  In halcion times, we could live with this, but in recent years it has become a case of robbing Peter to pay Paul–or like the old joke about 2/3 of the national wealth sucked into the pocket of a New  Jersey trial lawyer.

    Except in this case, the dark mover behind this scene of iniquity is the federal goverment, more specifically establishment democrats like Reid and Pelosi–and weaklings like Boehner and McConnel both of whom I know.  Romney is part of the same go along to get along crew, part of the status quo ante, a new version of Ward Cleaver–black hair except white temples–is his hair white and he dyes it black or black and he dyes the edges white?  Is a cat’s ass punched or bored. We don’t know what we don’t know.

    And when the federal government spends money to enrich party supporters, what happens to the rest of the country. They push the costs of those programs down to the states. Washington DC prospers and the country declines. The rule of megapolitics, like a hammer pounding on medal, will hammer out a new balance of power.  In time, our economy will be restructured by the forces of economics. The elites will push for dictatorship to maintain their hold their grip, but in the end, the forces of economics will prevail after alot of pain and suffering I am afraid.  I hope I am wrong.

      The reason I rail constantly against big media is because they are nothing more than the surrogate of the elite financial interests in New York and Washington. This is more important than their liberal bias. They are one more constiuency feeding at the public trough whose job is to promote a narrative protective of the elite interests.  Sarah Palin and to a degree Hillary Clinton posed a challenge to their hegemony and control, therefore they moved heaven and earth to destroy them.  I hope the public realizes this and discounts their views accordingly.  The problem is we have useless fucks like Frank Blethan as editors of newpapers that have so little talent on staff they simply parrot the tripe of AP, and the bullshit of hermophidites like EJ Dionne, and thereby sedate their readers.  How different from the small town newspaper of a friend of mine once adjudged to be the best in the country, whose goal was to protect the community and inform readers so they could participate meaningfully in their democracy.

        wbboe, thank you for your post.  This further validates the need for term limits.  I am simply astounded that these politicians keep getting re-elected.  How did this nation get so dumbed down as a whole?

        • Wbboe

          I am 100% with you on that texmex.  My friend term limited herself to 3 terms in the House, and when she asked me (and others) whether she should keep that commitment, because staff and supporters were begging her to stay, I  strongly encouraged her to do so.  We were driving to the Sherveport Airport after a legislative forum for the cattle industry in east Texas (Laneville/Mount Enterprise south of Tyler) and I remember every word of it.  She did not give me an answer then, but ended up keeping the commitment. Other Republicans like George Nethercutt, who was part of the same Congressional Class of 1994 proclaimed either as the no nothings or the class the stars fell on or the miracle of 94 depending on one’s political affililation, did not.  This was remarkable in a sense because he defeated former Speaker of the House Tom Foley to get the seat to begin with, by telling voters that term limits were necessary, took the pledge and then violated it.  The voters punished him for this and rightly so. Term limits is the only way to defeat big money and the permanently entrenched political class (including the congressional staffs) which is ruining the country.

          • Wbboe

            When Newt was asked who the greatest founding father was he said what I would have said–Washington. They offered him the crown and he would not accept it.  He believed in the code of the Roman General Cincinatus who returned from the wars and went back to farming.  Obama is the exact opposite.  He wants the prize without the contest. A perfect example of affirmative action at its worst.  It is like the line in Alice in Wonderland–first the verdict then the facts.

          • Wbboe

            Brings back a flood tide of memories. We had Ralph Hall (D-Tx–now an R) up for the event but we did not invite the local congressman–Max Sandlin (D-Tx).  He got bent out of shape that we were in his district as Republicans and did not notify him.  He was a tobacco class action lawyer like prettyboy John Edwards.  He did support the legislation we were working on so we forgave him, but he never forgave us.  He went on to marry Pelosi’s daughter, so in the end, he got what he deserved.

    For weeks, NBC News used a pseudonym on planning schedules so no one would find out Ms. Clinton had joined the team.
    Brian Williams described his first exceedingly discreet meeting with
    Ms. Clinton at a quiet table in the back of an Italian restaurant in
    Midtown as “ ‘The Godfather’ without a gun hidden in the bathroom.”

    One morning last week, Ms. Clinton shook hands as she made her way

    Most politicians might be a bit concerned about taking off for a 17 day vacation in Hawaii after admonishing congress to stay in session and work harder. Not Obama. He has shown us time and time again that he doesn’t think the rules, laws, traditions, whatever do not apply to him. With the media press agents he’s had he has, for the most part, gotten away with things that others wouldn’t. He is historic after all.

    He also isn’t smart enough to notice that he is no longer as popular as he once was or that many in the media no longer kiss his ass ring.

    Obama warning to Israel (not directly from him of course)
    “Defense Secretary Leon Panetta urged Israel on Friday to “reach out and mend fences” with Turkey, Egypt and other security partners in the Middle East, saying he is troubled by the Jewish state’s growing isolation in the volatile region. 
     
    He also pressed Israeli leaders to do more to restart peace talks with the Palestinians — “Just get to the damned table” — and underscored President Obama’s determination to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. He called Iran “a very grave threat to all of us” and said any Iranian disruption of the free flow of commerce through the Persian Gulf is a “red line” for the U.S.” 
     
    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2011/12/02/panetta-laments-growing-israeli-isolation-in-region/#ixzz1fU9A5eoN
     
    “With his boss, U.S. President Barack H. Obama, doing poorly in the polls less than a year before the 2012 election, U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta lashed out at Israel Friday, demanding that Israel “just get to the damn table” and negotiate with the PA. Ignoring Israel’s ongoing and constant appeals to Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas to restart negotiations with Israel without preconditions – a stance supported by the Quartet, of which the U.S. is a member, it should be noted – Panetta said that “the problem right now is we can’t get ‘em to the damn table, to at least sit down and begin to discuss their differences. We all know what the pieces are here for a potential agreement,” he said.
     
    In response to Panetta’s comments, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s spokesperson Mark Regev said Saturday night that it was the PA leadership that was responsible for the stalled negotiations. Israel, he said, was ready at any time for the resumption of negotiations without preconditions, but that the PA “is playing a diplomatic game to hide their stance, which is to boycott Israel and to refuse to negotiate.”
     
    http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/150346
     
    What Obama is missing here are facts. Turkey was the one that elected an Islamic government that unilaterally turned against Israel. Egypt, following the overthrow of Mubarak (which Obama perpetrated) and without provocation, is tossing out the Sadat peace accord and now has elected radical Islamists who will tilt toward Iran and become another enemy of Israel.
     
    What Obama is doing (Panetta being the meek messenger while Obama escapes to Hawaii) is to cast blame on Israel in order to deflect attention away from Obama’s failure in the Middle East resulting in the continued takeover and spread of radical Islam throughout the region.

      PRECISELY, Hokma! What a disingenuous message from Panetta. Yes, Israel is becoming more isolated because of the turn of her neighbors – with OUR HELP. The way Obama has treated Israel, and Netanyahu, is just beyond the pale. He and his Administration, which includes Hillary, have done nothing but blame Israel, and made unreasonable demands of them, like Panetta’s. Israel is supposed to play nice with people who want to destroy them? Where have I heard that before? Oh, right – from this Administration.

      Hillary was on a 45 minute phone call to the P.M. over a housing project in East Jerusalem that she called “an insult to the U.S.” Hard to believe she used to be considered a friend to Israel: http://articles.latimes.com/2010/mar/14/world/la-fg-us-israel14-2010mar14

          I hear you, olivia – I was so dedicated to her, giving of lots of money and time, as well as writing in support of her on a daily basis. But – since she joined this Administration after all of the BS underhanded, immoral, unethical machinations of Obama and the DNC, and the way she carries Obama’s water, like going after Israel, I wouldn’t vote for her again, either.

          I know many still say foreign affairs would be much worse without her, but how could they be?  We just spent $200 MILLION on Egypt’s election, and who won? The Muslim Brotherhood. And this crap from Panetta is essentially telling the victim to be nice to the abuser. That doesn’t jive well with me, and Clinton is a part of that, unfortunately, but it is HER choice.

    Saudi scholar: Letting women drive will lead to prostitution, porn 
     
    “Warning to Saudi Arabia’s legislative assembly came during fierce debates over driving ban
     
    Prostitution, porn, and premarital sex, oh my!
     
    These are just some of the consequences that will befall Saudi Arabia if women are allowed to drive, according to a report prepared by prominent conservative scholar Kamal Subhi, the BBC reported.
     
    In a report presented to the country’s legislative assembly, the Shura Council, Subhi warns that letting women take the wheel will encourage pornography and prostitution, and lead to increased rates of divorce, homosexuality, and sex before marriage — leading to a shortage of virgin brides.
     
    The report signals increased pressure on King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, 87, to maintain the law prohibiting women from driving, according to the Associated Press.
     
    Women have already defied Saudi Arabia’s driving ban in high profile protests several times this year.”

      What they’re really afraid of is that any woman given the means will head straight for the border.

    Hey Dude Where’s My Pizza?
     
    “A group of whiny occupy wall street protesters are hotter than a brick oven, claiming they ordered a delivery of pizza pies while in police custody — and the cops devoured them. The demonstrators’ say they were detained for several hours on Thursday at the 7th Precinct on the Lower East Side for blocking traffic near City Hall, so they asked cops to allow them place a $30 pizza order through the AIDS nonprofit for which they had been protesting. The cops agreed — but when the food arrived, the demonstrators never got so much as a slice. The protesters — who were taking a break from annoying Wall Streeters to demonstrate for more AIDS research money — are now accusing the cops of stealing the pizza and want their dough back.”

      I dont’t understand why the protesters are upset. The pizza wasn’t stole. It was just redistributed.

      “and want their dough back.”  Don’t they want the toppings too? Pizza dough without toppings is not very good!

    Traveling around the country and world, lying your ass off has to be tiring !! Give the guy a break, he’s probably looking for a couple of witnesses who will swear they witnessed his birth in the manger, oops, I meant hospital !!  It’s not easy being the worst president ever and the biggest liar on the planet.  Don’t forget, Meeeecheeeelle is probably looking for some of those lo-fat , 500 calorie ribs she talks about !

      I’m with you. It takes a lot out of you to be constantly campaigning to save your job. Imagine how tired he would be if he ever did his job?

      Okay, David, you have a point there. It probably IS tiring to try and LOOK busy, or like you actually know what you are doing. Poor Barry:

      I remember a picture of Bill Clinton, at the desk working, and he had stacks of files and stuff, and was reading them and writing notes. No phone in sight. Obama’s idea of work is two bits of paper and chatting on the phone. The difference is this..when Bill’s pic was taken, he was actually WORKING, whereas Obama’s “work” picture is just a photo op, posed for the cameras.

      LOL, yeah, me, too, Cuz’n. He can decide to give up the presidency while he is there if he wants. That would be fine by me! Except, would that leave us with Biden? Now I know why he picked him…
