  1. I do more before breakfast than BO does in a day.

    He said this in Scranton today. He says something like it in every speech. People think he means: oh, poor me, but I believe it has a racial subtext: Republicans are singling him out because they’re racists:

    The bad news is some of those same Republicans voted “no” on my jobs bill and those tax cuts. I don’t know whether it’s just because I proposed it. I don’t know. They said “no” to cutting taxes for small business owners and working families. One of them said just two years ago that this kind of tax cut would boost job creation, and now that I’m proposing it, he said we should let it expire. I mean, what happened?

    • The only “tax cut” he is proposing is in the payroll tax cut. The Social Security tax was reduced from 6.2% to 4.2% last year and put an average of $1,000 back in the pockets of people who actually have jobs. Unfortunately, that tax cut drains what little contributions are still going to the Social Security trust fund, so it will go broke much sooner than expected. It does zero, zilch, nada to create one single job. Why there aren’t any Republicans out there informing the public of that fact is beyond me. Boehner is still hiding under his desk I guess.

      • You are so right! We must get rid of these stupid Republicans that couldn’t express why they are against a disastrous policy/plan if their life depended on it! We need to put intelligent people against them in the primary! It is time to replace ALL of these crooks from BOTH parties!

        • I don’t want to throw them all out. There are many conservatives in Congress who are trying to do the right thing. Unfortunately, their leadership is extremely weak and ineffective.

          • The old guard should be replaced with true conservatives. I don’t want to throw out the ones we just sent in 2010 but the ones that get rich on insider trading information need to go! The ones that sell their vote to the highest bidder need to go. The ones that don’t represent the people who elected them but vote along leadership lines, need to go. I’m sorry but that means MOST of them!

  2. I am really sick to death of these light schedules! It’s a complete joke. Most working people have more accomplished every day before this bozo even waltzes into the Oval Office (at 10am, 11, noon).

    Only 341 days to go. I have this site bookmarked just for the countdown to election day, and I click on it every morning (of course, O’Dumbo is still in bed snoring at that time):

    • Just wanted to add something to my comments, as it’s something that I’ve noticed a lot. Whenever BHO has a morning appointment outside the White House, he gets his daily briefing AFTER the event, when he gets back. I mean, c’mon – the event is at 10 am! He can’t do what other presidents have done and be in the office by 8:30/9:00 for the daily briefing BEFORE he leaves for a mid-morning event? It has to wait until almost 11 am? Sheesh.

      • Hey, give him a break….he had a tough night last night with three fundraiser in NY city….which caused massive gridlock during their Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Did you hear what the Donald had to say? They were not happy!

          • When I see this I idly wonder if he really is just a figurehead and someone else is doing the real work, whatever that is…whatever it is, I am sure we won’t like it.

          • During the campaign some talking head I see a lot on TV said
            he was a straw man a Manchurian Candidate light. Sounded
            crazy but looking back a man who voted ‘present’ with no
            record to run on and looking at how Pelosi & Reid have led
            this debacle perhaps he is the empty suit whoever said he was and the country is paying the price!

          • I firmly believe he is an empty suit and is a Manchurian candidate with one goal, that is to destroy this country. I’d love nothing more than to be proven wrong about that.

  3. I meant *man on my previous post. This website eats or doesn’t recognize what I type sometimes and so I must type really slow and reenter some letters more than once. Is anyone else having this problem?

  4. Another day, another light schedule for the Slacker in Chief. I wonder how he’ll spend his afternoon? Perhaps a long nap after a hearty fat-filled lunch?

  5. The old guard should be replaced with true conservatives. I don’t want to throw out the ones we just sent in 2010 but the ones that get rich on insider trading information need to go! The ones that sell their vote to the highest bidder need to go. The ones that don’t represent the people who elected them but vote along leadership lines need to go. I’m sorry but that means MOST of them!

  6. After the election, Obama told his handlers in no uncertain terms that he would not be ‘cooped up’ in the WH – he wanted to be out amongst the people! Translation: ‘I am not interested in work – I just want to keep on campaigning’…..

    His laziness is well documented from the staff at the Harvard Review who said he was never there – preferred to work from home, and his own wife who has repeatedly said that he has a hard time getting up in the morning,

    Obama was nearly censured by Congress for his continued tardiness. In fact he was forced to give a ‘mea culpa’! His laziness is legendary!

    If there ever is such a thing as an Obama Library – it will consist of a teleprompter, an empty calendar, an empty suit, a golf club, a gazillion photos, and a beat-up old 747!
