In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. HOW THE F#%K DOES “Pres” Obama get away with this ‘schedule’???

    Does ANYONE in the “WH press corps” ever ask-wonder about Obama’s pathetic, empty schedule?

    1. Langley, I think he was supposed to be on vacay beginning this week….so his sked was probably cleared a while ago. This darn running the country thing is interfering with his golf!

  2. The dear leader deserves three weeks of vacation (in addition to his other vacations) while the rest of us slave and work to pay for it all.

    Poor thing. I hope he’s able to relax a bit before his trip to Hawaii.

  3. I don’t know why he has such gaps in his schedule, he could have brought Panetta in for lunch.

    Do we know if Michelle and the girls are in Hawaii now? She’s been pretty quiet since her remarks on that radio show last week.

    1. In Obama’s defense–and I admittedly don’t like the man that much, but I can at least be fair–Panetta may have a whole lot of military matters to tend to throughout the day that we’ll never know about. That 4:35 may be due to something on Panetta’s end, not Obama’s.

      Though I do have to wonder, like you, why there’s a six-hour gap in his schedule, assuming he spends 20 minutes on the PDB.

      For whatever it’s worth, they’re calling for mid to upper 50’s in DC today. With the election safely in the bag, and Obama now in the two-termers club, perhaps he’ll decide that on the (w)hole, he might want to do something else today, though I can’t for the life of me figure out what that might be.

    2. Michelle seems to be MIA lately other than begrudgingly doing a bare
      minimum of ‘holiday’ events. I will be surprised if she doesn’t leave
      ahead of him again but I doubt we will know. We should we pay for the
      $4 million trip after all.

    1. He’ll call on Bubba to do the heavy lifting – just like he did a couple of years ago during the Bush tax cuts negotiations. Clinton took over the podium in the briefing room so that Obama didn’t have to keep the wife waiting at the WH Christmas party. It’s always pleasure before business with these slackers.
