  1. 17 days in Hawaii. Most of us would like 17 minutes there. Has the president forgotten that he has a country to one, which is on the verge of insolvency? This arrogant deceitful person (this is a family blog) lacks the brain power to understand the detriment he has caused every man, woman and child in these 50 states. History will record that Obama played while the country turned. Mark Davis, MD author of Demons of Democracy, a book Obama prefer you did’t read.

    • Mark, I believe there are 57 states. At least there were the last time The One counted them. I suppose he was including Mexico and several muslim nations.

  2. BO: Timmy, get the check book out.
    TG: How much do you want to give for the European bailout?
    BO: Double what they actually need. After all, our tax payers won’t miss the bucks with the financial shape we have created in the American economy with stimulus and bailout bucks. Also, this will help the Europeans love me more, anyway.

    The following “candid” Oval Office conversation has been injected with fabricated nouns, verbs, adjectives, conjunctions, adverbs, modifiers and maybe a few dangling participles. MH

  3. He’s a regular Energizer Bunny isn’t he? Well perhaps tomorrow is actually a
    trick and they will put him in the facility Osawatomie is known for:)

  4. “college affordability”?
    I blame the colleges today for “affordability problems”… why do I, a History major, need to take 2 1/2 semesters of useless classes that have NOTHING to do with studying History… useless classses = more $$$$ for colleges.

    Maybe SOMEONE will ask about Barack Hussein Obama’s “college records” again:
    -How did Obama get into Columbia & Harvard Law?
    -What was his course of study? (re: alot of anti-American classes & Socialist papers)
    -What was his GPA? (‘they’ say Obama is a “genius”)
    -How did Obama pay for Columbia & Harvard Law?
    -Why has Barack Hussein Obama “sealed” his college records?

  5. The meeting on college affordability is a disguised attempt to push off more of the cost of college to the taxpayers. Colleges have absolutely no incentive to lower their costs if the government keeps picking up the tab. But they’d better watch themselves, at some point they will all be like GM.

    • You have taken the words from my mouth except that college and Unis have not turned to the gov’t for support. They have created generations of debt slaves called ex-students.

  6. Keith — please enlighten those of us who live outside the glowing circle. What does Obama do all day when these piddling events and appointments are done? He can’t spend all his time picking lint off his lapel and catching glances of himself in mirrors.

    Did the schedules of other Presidents look this sparse? Are there regular duties too routine to be included in an official schedule? He does do SOMETHING related to his job, doesn’t he?

  7. What does Barry do after his 11:15 appointment? Bet there is a grand,
    drawn out lunch on the menu. Barry must be so tired after almost “working” for a half day.

    Perhaps there is a toga party with Reggie schedule for the afternoon.

  8. The problem with the college affordability discussion is that they will not discuss ways to make college affordable (i.e., lowering the price). Instead, they will discuss how they can make it easier for students and their parents to get loans to pay for college, which just transfer the costs to later years and adds the interest expense.

    • Absolutely — give a student enough loans today and he is your debt slave forever — afraid to take risks, start a business, change jobs, speak out on unpopular issues lest that lifeline job is lost, and so on until you have a large malleabe workforce under your thumb. We have the illegal aliens for this (and I’m for deportation of same), and now we’re developing our own indebted peasant class.

  9. Is anyone in this country paying attention? Sheesh, what a hard working PO(TU)S – 9:45 to probably only about 11:45 on a Monday. That’s IT? Oh yeah, I forgot, he did appear in the briefing room to bash the Republicans (yet again at around 2:00. But, that’s it for the day?? Freaking ridiculous!
