    • “……and, let me be clear……The fact that I have nothing new to announce regarding employment for veterans or military spouses is the result of the Sequester, a program approved by the Congress. Now, if I was NOT constrained, each of you fine people (gestures behind him at the gathered human props) would get a new car, made in America, with which to commute to your great paying job in….”

      Stick a sock in it, Barry. Its getting old.

  1. The top story on Fox is that career employees of the CIA and State have been threatened with losing their jobs if they speak to Congress. State claims an internal investigation has cleared itself.

    • Hours after Collins disclosed his sexuality in an online article,
      Some b-ball player, Jason Collins, announced that he was gay. Obama being Obama, never misses an opportunity to comment on the least trivial matter of the day.
      SO….
      Obama reached out by phone, expressing his support and telling Collins he was impressed by his courage, said a White House official, who was not authorized to discuss the private call publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

      So, you see how it works…if the employees of the CIA and State Dept. proclaim they are ‘gay’ – it shouldn’t be a problem. AND. YES. I am being very snarky.

        What freakin’ business is this of the president? How long did he talk about this before he made the call? How long did the call last? How long did he talk about it after the call?

        Of all the crap that needs to be addressed in this nation, he took the time to insert himself into a matter that is not one of great importance?

        • “What freakin’ business is this of the president? ” – Mandy Manners

          Maybe it’s personal, he was calling Jason Collins for a date? After all, Mr. Collins is doubtless more feminine than Michelle, and since she considers herself “single” (“Single Mom”) anyway, then all’s fair in love and war…

          • I’m not buying into the notion that he’s homosexual or bisexual. Even if he were, it’s none of my business.

            I see this as yet another instance in which he just had to stick his nose into where it doesn’t belong, such as the Trayvon Martin killing and the Gates’s arrest.

            • You’re right, Mandy, he IS just getting his phiz out there and pointing out the squirrels, of course. Just trying to lighten it up a little…

              The left is well-known for its lack of humor. That’s one of the things that differentiates us from them.

                I wonder if that’s because they’re always busy looking for something that isn’t ffffaaaaairrrrrrrrrrr.

  2. “Makes an employment announcement for veterans and military spouses”?

    What’s he going to say? “Oh, hey folks. Thanks for all the sacrifices you’ve made over the course of your careers, but you know, the economy is tough right now due to the liars in the Republican party. Because we really don’t have any work for those of you and your families that have given so much to this country, we are going to do a trade with China. For every one hundred former military personnel and their families we send over to China, they are going to forgive a half a billion dollars of our debt. It’s a win-win for everyone. They have huge cities that are empty, and we have a huge debt to them, so it all works out. Think of it as a continuation of your service to this great country.”

    • He IS going to employ them – as drone targets.

      “Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Wednesday that she was briefed before the release of a controversial intelligence assessment and that she stands by the report, which lists returning veterans among terrorist risks to the U.S. ”

      And it IS Terror Tuesday, after all…

      ‘…a New York Times article detailing the assassination program being run out of the Obama White House.

      The lengthy May 29 article in the Times establishes that personally plotting killings and selecting victims occupies a great deal of President Barack Obama’s time. The process has been organized as a weekly routine, with Obama heading so-called “Terror Tuesday” meetings of military and intelligence officials. Each week they assemble in the White House situation room to study mug shots and biographies of those on the “kill list”, some of them minors and, in one case, “a girl who looked even younger than her 17 years.”’

      Thanks for the props, vets. That little plane is getting ready to deliver your, uh, “job”, so just stand real still and smile for the camera…

        IIRC, Tuesday is also the day that senior admnistration officials have a teleconference with the wonderful folks at Media Matters.

  3. […] Obama Schedule || Tuesday, April 30, 2013 10:15 am || Makes an employment announcement for veterans and military spouses 12:30 pm || Lunch with Biden 4:30 pm || Meets with Defense Secretary Hagel All times Eastern **** Wonder what his 'employment announcement' will be? "Sorry about not having any jobs when you leave the military. I just want to reassure you that my administration is doing everything possible to make sure you don't have to keep saying, "Do you want fries with that?" for very long. On the bright side, many lucrative careers have started with, 'Welcome to Walmart,' so keep your chins up!" […]

  4. He should announce that he is going to keep his mitts off TriCare.

    He should announce that he is bringing home those brave military sitting ducks in Afghanistan waiting to “honor” his official withdrawal date.

    More likely he will have some job opportunity for vets and perhaps spouses. If so, that’s good. What’s bad is that it is more illusion — he will claim credit and the taxpayers will pay for it and the country will sink deeper and deeper in debt.

    Obama is looking to score political points. I expect nothing of substance from this man who praises Jason Collins for his “courage” while leaving 4 Americans dead and undefended in Benghazi.

    I guess Secretary Susan R. Hagel is getting his “red line” flash card talking points at 4:30.

    • I don’t think so, Grace. The only reason it was worded this way on his calendar was to get people to pay attention to his presser, even if it was to be staged.

    • Wondering the same. Our local community collitch has a program to help vets and their spouses find work–today everyone must work ouit of the home to creep by. Most universities have veteran programs, too–they find the vet enrolling and help them along the way–it’s active, not just some office.
