Once again, the incorrigible rabble rousing community organizer tries to stir up controversy by indicating that the private inauguration might be closed press, except for the indispensable Pete Souza. We already know that he is a total jackass, so what’s his point? Is the press corps supposed to fall to their knees and plead for access to the swearing in? His antics are wearing very thin.

Meant to say private swearing in ceremony, not inauguration. He rattles my brain….

He does have that effect. I’ve noticed with myself too.

Obama and money. Mark Steyn has a new post on NRO about the Royal Presidency, and the UK’s royal family (The Queen on down) spend far less than the US Government spends on him.

The other side of the news:

The SupremeCourt will rule on the constitutionality of marriage as defined by the several states. They will decree that marriage is a legal contract between consenting adults and any prohibition to that contract must be rooted in contract law.
This ruling will open the door for group marriages, and any combination of individuals who wish to form a legal contract.

Sec of State, H.Clinton, will appear before a House committee to give her version of the illogical and improbable events that happened in Bengazi.
The committee will express doubt and concern over her testimony, and her supporters will hold a press conference claiming that the old, angry, White men in Congress are picking on a poor, defenseless old woman again.

PresObama has decided that his swearing-in ceremony will be held in private with only a few friends and family present. The President has witten his own vows, in the spirit of the NewAgers and Progressives, instead of the traditional oath of office. Certain portions of his new oath that have been released to the press include the promise to show up for work at least twice a week, to visit every state once a year, and to remove his shoes before he places his feet upon the historic furniture in the Oval Office.

Former Florida GovernorChrist (R)(I)(-o-) has changed his political registration to Dem in an effort to keep his name in the news. GovChrist, an angry, old, White man, has determined that he can gain a political boost from his constant flip-flopping, just as former GovRomney had in the last Pres election.

A seemingly deranged entertainer from Korea has been invited to the WhiteHouse to give dance instuctions for the staff member and the Obama family. His presence at the WhiteHouse is being questioned by members of various entertainment unions because of the Korean is not a union member.

The tense negotioations between Congress and the WhiteHouse have reached is inevitable crisis mode with both sides insisting that the other be responisble for raising taxes on anyone or everyone. Proponents of a balanced budget for the mighty Federal government are disgusted with all of them and are planning recalls or impeachment proceedings to oust the incompetent leaders of both parties.

“Proponents of a balanced budget for the mighty Federal government are disgusted with all of them and are planning recalls or impeachment proceedings to oust the incompetent leaders of both parties.” – srdem65

This is good and likely future reporting. You stopped short on this one, though. Let me revise and extend;

“Proponents of a balanced budget for the mighty Federal government are disgusted with all of them and are planning recalls or impeachment proceedings to oust the incompetent leaders of both parties. Many of the recall petitions are thrown out for questionable signatures on the grounds that the alleged signatures were by “Crackers” who are said by Obama to be unable to write, while others are mysteriously burned in unexplained accidents while being delivered. Of the surviving petitions, some wards, particuarly around Cleveland and Philidephia, voted 112% against recall, and re-elected Obama again just for good measure even though it was not on the ballot. Eric Holder investigated these activities, and after due diligence issued a report condeming the hopeless racism of anyone who questions or opposes Obama, and vowed to use the recall petitions as a means of identifying potential terrorists. Reached at his Hawaiian retreat, Obama recommended a high tax rate as appropriate “revenge” as part of his pending “No Dollar Left Behind” executive order, which includes language from FDR’s Executive Order 6102, to make sure that these rich, old, White men don’t hold out on him by buying gold, which he can easily determine due to the provisions in the Affordable Care Act Section 9006 that pertains to required reporting of any “Purchases of goods or services exceeding $600.00″, including gold in any form.”

There’s a lot more that could be said, but it just gets uglier…

Thank you, srdem. You do the best interpretation of the news. Although the daily news is getting more and more depressing as America continues her downward spiral, I look forward to those recalls and impeachment proceedings to begin once we hit bottom and the dust settles.
