  1. Interesting that during KHNL’s live televised coverage of the POTUS departure from JBPHH they implicitly referenced that Bo was leaving with the First Family tonight.

    The White House denied that Bo had flown out to HI with the FLOTUS when she arrived on the 17th.

    There was no news reports that Bo accompanied the POTUS when he arrived on the 23rd.

    After a published eye witness account of seeing Bo, which was later retracted, there were no further reports of Bo sightings or whereabouts over the course of the Obama’s 4 million dollar Christmas vacation.

    So just when exactly did Bo arrive in HI?

    • Bo had orginally flown to Hawaii with MrsO but was called back to Washington to perform some important political function. He then accompanied the Prez back to Hawaii but was too busy working on the 2012 budget to appear in public.

  2. Congratulations to the reward, Keith. Well deserved.
    In The Hill I read two interesting things this morning. Obama will hold a televideo conference with Iowa caucus voters today, Tuesday. Do you have any ideas why apart from a wish to disturb the Republican process ? And, isn´t it regarded as a serious break of “protocol” ? Seems like this man can´t stand that others get the medias attention. Hopefully it backfires.
    I also read that OWS has interrupted various political events in Iowa. Are they part of the Obama campain ? Otherwise you would have thought that they should demonstrate aginst the person who is actually more responsible for the mess in the US the last years.

  3. Could he be more needy and insecure? Or perhaps he’s so vain he thinks
    anything having to do with votes or elections must be about him. I think it
    is a very childish thing to do like dinner for $3 me,me,me …idiot!

  4. “Iowa Caucus Attendees” could mean anything at this point. Have someone one who is coherent, has some skin in the game (translate mortgage/job), and is ready to ask the tough questions of this president? Not likely.
    But I am hopeful we will see many “Joe the Plumber moments,” starting today.

  5. Did the West Wing staff turn up the thermostat so that BHO will still feel as if he’s in Hawaii? (This is the man who told us all in 2008 that we wouldn’t be able to keep our homes at a comfortable level [1] yet, when he got into office, cranked the thermostat to a setting at which you could grow orchids, according to Axelrod [2].)



  6. He is such a narcissist that he can’t stand to be out of the limelight. Tonight all eyes will be on the winner of the Republican caucus, but his ego just won’t tolerate that. It’s bad enough he has released his rabble rousing occupy losers to create havoc for Republican caucus goers; he has to try to steal another person’s glory. Unfortunately, that’s the way tyrants roll…
