1:05pm – Obama to the American Public: “You all are so Shit Out Of Luck” XOXOXO from the POTUS :)

QueenOfScott November 8, 2012 at 8:56 pm

Obama: “Oh yeah, did you notice? Michelle put up some new drapes in the East Room. And she saved you all some money by using the fabric from the dress she wore last night. You can thank us later.”

Yeah–that was a drab, unbecoming dress she had on–I noticed but did not have the strength to snark. Please oh please let my snark return. I am nothing without it.

Heard he’s jetting off on a “historic” trip to Burma next week. Not like he has anything important going on around here I guess…

Girly1 November 8, 2012 at 10:12 pm

He’s already getting lots of criticism!

“The trip from Nov. 17 to 20 will be a quick one, squeezed in just before Thanksgiving, as Mr. Obama focuses most of his energy on confronting tax and spending issues that must be addressed by the end of the year and rebuilding his team for the next four years. The White House said that while in the region, the president would discuss “a broad range of issues,” including economics, security and human rights.

The most symbolically potent part of the trip will be the stop in Yangon, where Mr. Obama will meet with the two driving forces behind Myanmar’s dramatic emergence from decades of military dictatorship, President Thein Sein, who came to power last year, and Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, the Nobel Peace Prize-winning opposition leader freed from house arrest and allowed to run for and win a seat in Parliament.

Mr. Obama met with Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi when she visited Washington in September, and he has eased sanctions to encourage the evolution in Myanmar. But critics said he was going too far by rewarding Yangon with a visit of his own without extracting additional concrete progress like freedom for hundreds of political prisoners still held there.

“This is an incredibly delicate process that’s still at a very early stage,” said Tom Malinowski, the Washington director of Human Rights Watch. “It would have been better, I think, to reserve some leverage before the incredibly difficult decisions that the government has yet to make.” He added, “It would not be a good thing if the president leaves Burma and there are still political prisoners there.”

After a grueling and long campaign, flying here and there, can’t he stay put in the WhiteHouse and deal with our problems first before flying off to Yangon, wherever that is located?
He really loves that airplane.

We’ll probably see more photos of him bowing to his muslim brothers again………..gag. And we’ll have to endure mooch’s sleeveless dress photos.

Delivers a statement about the deficit; East Room

Will this be the teleprompter reading where he promises the American people that he will cut the deficit in half over the next four years?

Car in November 9, 2012 at 8:33 am

Same as it ever was.

Rich L November 9, 2012 at 9:55 am

Yep, angry neocons further marginalizing themselves out on the end of their weakening little limb, hating on the First Lady’s physical appearance, not understanding the need for talking to anyone outside our borders (btw, I didn’t realize Boehner needed Obama to sit next to him for a handholding session every moment), and not mentioning that the President has been reaching across the aisle while Boehner and McConnell’s staffs say they’re asleep and can’t take phone calls. C’mon guys- come to the middle or get the hell out of the way.

Star November 9, 2012 at 11:10 am

I am a neocon? I thought I was a highly overeducated American citizen heartbroken over the country’s direction and leadership. Interesting.

Danceswithtruth November 9, 2012 at 11:35 am

“talking to anyone outside our borders.” Hmmmmm……would be nice if he would talk to, address those within our borders; say in New Jersey/New York. Maybe find out why the whimpy FEMA workers tucked tail and ran due to bad weather while thousands struggle to find food and warmth. Naw……go to Yangon, our people can wait.

Why would you have an ad for Rush Limpballs if you say you are “preserving freedom by holding the White House to account” ?

Star November 9, 2012 at 11:03 am

Clever nickname–guess you don’t know how Google does ads.
