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

Obama: My Credit Card Was Declined

Well, as they say, the system worked.

From remarks today during an event at which Obama signed an executive order beefing up security on federal credit cards:

I went to a restaurant up in New York when I was during the U.N. General Assembly, and my credit card was rejected. It turned out I guess I don’t use it enough. They were — they thought there was some fraud going on. Fortunately, Michelle had hers.

I was trying to explain to the waitress, you know, I really think that I’ve been paying my bills. Even I’m affected by this.

  1. For those of you that do not all ready know Mr Obola’s SS number fails e verify. You can check it your self. Its fun – try it and see him as the fake person he is.

    • Even if there were a “smigeon”of truth to this cooked up tale, this place has a nasty round of reprisals coming down the pike.

      My, what a twisted & distorted mind this man has.

  2. Liar. He wants us to believe that after the Secret Service vetted the restaurant, confiscated all phones and cameras from the employees and the patrons, the O’s entered, ordered dinner, then presented a credit card that was denied?
    What idiot restaurant was this? Who owns this Kamakazi eatery?

    it’s made up events like this that show MrO to be a complete fraud, and that he doesn’t value the intelligence of the people he’s supposed to be governing.
    This sad, pathetic man just can’t stop lying.

    • You raise a great point. Why on earth would he volunteer this?

      As to paying his bills, that line does sound a bit like fraud. I’d love to see his personal credit card bills for all those campaign trips, not to mention the human props he brings in.

      “Full faith and credit” is looking more than a bit transparent.

      • Yes, just exactly WHAT was the law professor’s (oops, that wrong. He never was a law professor, or professor of ANY kind) point. That it is so seldom that he pays for anything that his bank doesn’t know him? Just like the rest of us? Come to think of it, he and I ARE quite similar. We both walk on two legs. The difference is I’ve been like that since shortly after I was born. Obama on the other hand had to spend a long time learning to walk after crawling out of the primordial ooze.

    • Wondering if he just forgot to activate it ? Also, if your first purchase on a new card is out of state, it’ll be declined automatically (happened to me, d’oh Discover Card, haven’t used it since).

      BO’s not only a liar and a drama queen (me, me, me), it also looks like credit card security is already working. :)

  3. Remember when Obama campaigned in 2008 with holes in his shoe soles so people could better identify with him, think he was “normal folk” instead of a wealthy politician? That’s what his comment about the declined card reminded me of, just another scheme…

  4. Last week Barack Obama played his 200th round of golf.

    Tomorrow Sgt. Tahmoressi marks the 200th day of imprisonment in a Mexican jail cell. Shame on Barack Obama and shame on Mexican President Nieto.

  5. As usual Dictator Ebola Obama is telling another damn lie. It wasn’t his credit card (you have to have an employment history and a credit history to qualify for one), it was his EBT card that was declined because it had a very small balance left on it, because he had spent most of his monthly welfare money on malt liquor and smokes. What a massive douche.

  6. “I was trying to explain to the waitress, you know, I really think that I’ve been paying my bills. Even I’m affected by this.”

    Wrong! The U.S. taxpayers are footing the bills for every member of the Obama family, including the illegal relatives! Their personal expenses, according to reports, have exceeded $1 Billion over the last 6 years!

    Is he trying to give the impression that he pays for his extracurricular activities? Or was he making a sick joke at the expense of hard-working Americans who are struggling to get by.

    In the book, The Amateur, Klein tells the story about Obama telling Rev. Wright that Michelle wouldn’t allow him to run for the senate until their massive credit card debt was paid off. He couldn’t purchase a plane ticket to the 2004 DNC convention where he was the keynote speaker b/c his cards were maxed out. They were flat broke until he hit the U.S. Government lottery and his books suddenly started flying off the shelves.

    So glad to hear Michelle whipped out her credit card and saved the day! What a phony!

    • Girly, thanks for the clear and concise rant. Maybe, Sir Spends-a-lot, should have used Michelle’s card. Her net worth is now $11 million (she must have penny-pinched her way through all the overseas vacations).

      • Good grief! I didn’t realize the $11M was Mooch’s separate net worth! The single mom has been schtruggling for the last 6 years to put carrots and peas on the table! Nice work if you can get it!

        Maybe it’s time to remind Americans of HRC’s cattle futures trade – a $1000 investment turned into $100K in the blink of an eye. The two Flotus’s are ‘bewitched’.

    • It just occurred to me that I’ve never seen a picture of Me’Chelle carrying a purse. Even the Queen of England carries a purse, and she certainly never whips out her credit card! So I wonder, where does Mooch hide her credit card? Down “her” bra, perhaps? In some secret pocket? Does a Secret Service person carry it for her? So many questions, so few answers.

    • The lessons that Obama has learned as an adult apply to NO ONE. He wrote a book (sorta) that magically answered all their prayers. He knew the right people who massaged his persona into the White House. That he now things, because of his position and wealth, that he has anything to tell us, etc, is just bs.

      He didn’t get there through anything but a gigantic cosmic gift and the incredible stupidity of the electorate.

      I don’t buy his “I’m just like you” bs and more than I’m interested in their healthy eating, fitness, spend time with your kids stuff. Complete sham all the way around.

  7. Hey look — Barack Hussein Obama and ValJar found another Muslim holiday to celebrate. And Jean Francois Kerree took this opportunity to take a jab at Israel as is his want.

    So yeah — be afraid ISIS. Be very very afraid.

    Heck next year maybe they will be invited.

    • Just what we needed – another Islamic holiday on record. The UN will be joyous – they have never recognized a Jewish holiday. Remember, when presidents used to work for America and not the OIC!

      • …Presidents used to work for America? You mean their job was not always to keep us from thinking we lived in a decent, hardworking and for the most part, compassionate country? Amazing!

  8. Obamas has never paid for anything from Their pocket , no wonder he Obama has poor credit . He will claim to be poor in 2016 like Hillary in 2000.

  9. Oh baloney – like the President’s -and his guests – meal would not be comped.
    Come on, Val…this is the best you’ve got from the string of young, impressionable aides who tell O the hippest things to say?
    It is time for a reality check, dear.

  10. Obama’s a comedian, don’t forget that for a minute. His supporters are comics too. Husband and I lunched with a friend last week who told us that Obamacare would’ve worked had younger people signed up. Okkkkkkkkkkkkkkkaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy……duh.

    Not only was Obama’s card declined, his brain was declined at birth, yet like Honey Boo Boo, he’s FAMOUS for being an ODDITY!

  11. OT. I find this difficult to understand. ISIS has captured and threatens to behead Peter Hassig. Both Mr. Hassig and his parents have converted to Islam. And they appear to be quite sincere about it. Hassig’s conversion seems to be voluntary — perhaps his parents as well. I could understand if they thought it a necessary act to save their son. But this does not appear to be the case. It’s perplexing that those who believe as you do would still go ahead and kill you — your son. How does one believer justify that action? I really do not get it. Perhaps they believe that ISIS is a perversion.

    I wish the best for Mr. Hassig and hope that for whatever reason he is spared. And I pray for him and his family.

  12. Don’t know if there will be an open thread this weekend–but I read that insurance cancellations are flooding Colo and may affect elections there. I personally got notice yesterday that my primary no longer takes my Medicare Advantage plan–in 18 yrs, I have been to two primaries more than once–many of the docs here in AZ are ridiculous–so now I am back in doc hell. I can see who they assign and vet him or her. Or I can try to get a list from two “networks” I never heard of and try to vet. Or I can change plans to one that he will take. Vetting means checking with medical board for lawsuits, the reviews online, the office manager of the person, and then going when you would not need to (big dog and pony) and trying to style a new person to consult with you instead of bossing you around–and who knows if the office will be efficient, referrals, sending records…ACK!
