As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Quote of the Day || September 30, 2013

“And so when this ridiculous shutdown begins Tuesday, all non-essential government workers will be told to stay home. And I think it’s a shame that therefore Biden won’t be coming to work.”

– Barack Obama

    • Other than Mr. Obama’s meeting with Netanyahu tomorrow (and, of course, his constant, unstoppable, laser focus on the economy), his public schedule seems to indicate that for the most part he, too, qualifies as “non-essential”.

  1. 435 of them are looking at being laid off in the next election.
    Let’s just put them on part time employment now and save the money.
    Oh wait !!!
    They already are on part time employment with full pay and benefits !
    Nice gig !

  2. The only thing worse than government shutdown is government in full operating mode. With the former, Americans get f*****; with the latter, Americans get a kiss. Wait! Do you know where that tongue has been?

  3. No private company hires or keeps “non-essential” employees on the payroll.
    If any employee of an agency is furloughed as a “non-essential” by a govenment supervisor, they should not be asked back to work, ever.

  4. Oh I don’t know Barack, you’ve made yourself pretty non-essential as a leader, why don’t you stay home? Better yet go play golf, you seem to be more relevant on the golf course than anywhere else.

  5. OH, NOES! THE GUBMIT’S GONNA SHUT DOWN! REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF LIKE – THE – NAtional – parks service?

    Wherever will we get our Muslim Outreach efforts NOW?

    The NPS joins NASA as a Federal agency repurposed to cuddle Obama’s Sunni brethren – and praising Islam on WOMEN’S RIGHTS at that! And at the same time some sheik in Saudi Arabia says females shouldn’t drive because they’ll damage their “ovaries and pelvis”, too!

    “SAUDI SHEIK: WOMEN BANNED FROM DRIVING BECAUSE IT DAMAGES THEIR OVARIES AND PELVIS, ALSO LEAD TO SURGE IN HOMOSEXUALITY, DIVORCE, PROSTITUTION, PORNOGRAPHY AND NO MORE VIRGINS IN 10 YEARS’… ”

    And that Muslim outreach sure is helpin’, innit?

    So PLEASE shut it down. Before they make the the other googleplex of Federal agencies start reaching for Muslims for Obama as well…

  6. How essential are the WH chefs? Let Mooch and the rest of ’em eat frozen Stouffer’s. We might even be able to pay down the national debt at this rate.

  7. Good one, Keith. Biden works? Could have fooled me. If we really have a government shutdown does that mean no more pep rallys with college kids for Preezy? Fat chance. Too bad we can’t defund the corrupt DOJ so the crook Holder won’t be able to sue all the States that aren’t Marxist strongholds.

  8. Looks like Harry Reid and friends are on the non-essential list to me. In fact, I think they should all make it part and parcel of their permanent schedule. Keep them out of Washington, DC for half of each month w/o pay. They have more recesses than a bunch of four year olds in kindergarten.

  9. “all non-essential government workers will be told to stay home”. Why do they ever have to come back? What does “non-essential mean?
