Letter: Spoiled brat

Wow, what a great guy, that president Obama! He's acting like a spoiled little brat who didn't get his way. How about his canceling the White House tours while spending multimillions for golf outings and Michelle's multimillion dollar city tours and, oh yeah ... millions for Malia Obama's trip to have dinner with friends in New York.

Got to be happy with the Homeland Security releasing thousands of illegal aliens, already slated for deportation, many picked up while committing crimes!

Man, it's got to be embarrassing to be a Democrat these days, while trying to act like your man in the White House is the greatest man to ever to walk this Earth!

Do I have to say...don't count me among his worshipers?

Thanks for posting this Roy Leggett:

I have read this before and posted part of it on here. They nailed it - it is so spot on - and there is even more - left out is the mentoring by The Communist (Frank Marshall) in Hawaii.

And o given the opportunity, desk and office to write a book on race relations and he switched and wrote it about himself instead. Then he wrote another about himself. How humble and he wasn't even 30 yrs old.

A combination of promises of freebies, white guilt, lies from his side and out and out fraud put obama in office and we will be suffering for many years to come because of it. He has done nothing to earn the Presidency as is evidenced in the excellent book The Amateur.

Rush pointed out this morning concerning unemployment, we now have 14 million new people on SSDisability that are not even included in unemployment figures.

A judge asked one what his disability was. High blood pressure and diabetes he said. The judge said, me too, I'm working, why aren't you?

My embarrassed friends 44 year old son has spent years trying to get disability and finally did. His disability? He's only 5'6" and weighs nearly 350 lbs so his back hurts. Paying him retroactively, he got enough money to pay cash for a motor home and good extended cab truck and now just travels around having a good time.

Must be nice I say as I cripple around with my dozen herniated discs and more. Haha!

@Roy

Again, you need to stop believing the chain emails. The blog post you are quoting never appeared in any Washington newspaper. It was written by a right wing blogger for an online spot called American Thinker.

As to the rest of your claims.....perhaps you should take your own advice and check snopes and truth or fiction. You must might be surprised to find out that Obama is doing nothing different than his predecessors. Well, except maybe for Clinton, and then again, who wants to visit Arkansas?

I share your frustration, David, about the President. He closed down the tours for Americans to our White House. It isn't his to shut down. It's the peoples' White House, not his. Why doesn't he pipe up and tell all Congress in order to save money he will sequestor their pay till they figure out the budget. After all he is the guy in the White House. He calls the shots.

Under obamacare, when you start to buy your mandatory insurance and fill out the unbelievable amount of paperwork to do so, you might be in for a little surprise.

There is a place to register to vote. It is placed and worded in a way that voters will think they must register to vote in order to apply for the health care.

Nice move libs! You never miss a trick.

Another trick. think they are getting free health care but it is being discovered women will actually be paying more.

Not to worry. Kathleen Sebelius, head of HHS and worst enemy of unborn children, has now stated men's will go up too so that makes it even. Right!!

Yeah, NC is right -

I wondered why anyone that comments on here would even read the Post.... that was the first problem. The second was that the paragraph you quote is so poorly written that a Post editor would never accept it. Read a few Post editorials and you'll notice how well-written they are compared to this junk.

Part #4 from Washington Post
And that is what America did to Obama. True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be? As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary.

What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time Obama speaks? In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama's oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. Those people - conservatives included - ought now to be deeply embarrassed.
The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichés, and that's when he has his Teleprompters in front of him when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all. Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth - it's all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years.

Part#3
Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal: To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberal Dom to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were a bit extreme, he was given a pass. Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass - held to a lower standard - because of the color of his skin.

Podhoretz continues: And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) "non-threatening," all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?

Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon - affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves.

Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back. Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow. Liberals don't care if these minority students fail liberals aren't around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self-esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action. Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin - that's affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn't racism, then nothing is.

This is the second of four parts of the article in the Washington Post
I too have become disillusioned
By Matt Patterson (columnist - Washington Post, New York Post, San Francisco Examiner)

Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world's largest economy, direct the world's most powerful military, execute the world's most consequential job? Imagine a future historian examining Obama's pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way a cushy non-job as a "community organizer" a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, so often did he vote "present") and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.

He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama's "spiritual mentor" a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama's colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president?

This is for OH YA, Give us the website where you find all your wonderful information. Oh you can not. Sorry. Thought we were speaking of facts. Now answer this on. How many vacations did Bush send his daughters on to the tune of 1 or 2 million? NONE. How many shopping sprees did Bush send his wife on to the tune of 7 million? NONE again. Obama sent his daughter and 12 friends to Mexico to the tune of one million dollars for spring break. Machelle went to England, carrying a bunch of friends. That cost several million. Check the facts. Obama tells the American people to cut back and he acts like a back woods idiot that won the lottery and has no limits on spending. Obama sent 25 Secret Service agents with his daughter. No wonder the White House tours were stopped. Check Snopes or Truth or Fiction. Lies are good if you can prove them to be facts, If the Democraps want to start slingong mud, they better get someone other than Bo as a hero.

“I do know that Biden just spent, well I mean, the American taxpayer just spent $585,000.50 for a one night stay in Paris for Joe.”

Then you also “know” that the expenses incurred are, according to State Department officials, in-line with expenses for high level visits by previous administrations with one of The Criminals visits to Paris actually costing considerably more than did Biden’s.

Expenses of course cover considerably more than just hotel rooms – they include transportation, security (which requires personnel to be on-site days before the official visit) along with ancillary costs. You did “know” that as well, right? Oh, you didn’t? Well son-of-a-gun!

Concerning obama vacations and costs, we are only in March, 2013 and already have paid for three obama family vacations, one a month.

He was already on a 9 day Hawaii vacation when the new year hit, which included 5 golf rounds w/seven partners, 30 hours on two Oahu courses, five trips to the Kaneohe Bay Marine Base gym, two beach afternoons, one hike and an afternoon bowling and eating shaved ice. That cost us $2 to 4 million - Air Force One costs $180,000 per hour and to and from Hawaii is 18 hours.

President's Day weekend Michelle and daughters hit Aspen for a ski vacation, something she does annually. Details were kept mum.

While thousands of students were out for Spring break, many w/plans to visit the White House, they now can't but Malia and Sasha flew off to the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. Sometimes the obama's say they pay w/their own money which is doubtful. We know all Secret Service are paid for by us.

And now, the SS is scouting around Martha's Vineyard for another upcoming vacation and this one always has a big pricetag on it.

Add Joe Biden's bills to obama's and you have to wonder how any lib can compare their spendthrift ways to Bush going to Crawford instead of a 5 star hotel with 40 limos following behind.

Records show when Biden and friends went to Europe, a bill for $321,665.00 was submitted for Limo services. At the Hyatt Regency in London, the bill was for 136 rooms for $459,388.65 and in Paris the bill submitted was $585,000.50 for SAME.

When o went to the G 20 in Canne, France, his limo bill was $731,938.00.

Poison gases ARE Weapons of Mass Destruction.
I know the liberals and the media tried to change the designation of these WMD’s because they wanted to report that Bush was wrong and a liar. But WMD’s still include and always will include poison gas. No amount of Bush hate can change that.

Prior to Desert Storm, Iraq ADMITTED to producing over 3 “tons” of VX nerve gas. That’s only what they admitted to.

During the war the 4th Infantry Division alone found 55-gallon drums containing cyclosarin - a nerve agent. Each drum weighs about 440, making 5 barrels equal over a “ton.” They found hundreds of barrels including Sarin gas. TONS!

A recently declassified Defense Department report indicates that the United States has uncovered more than 500 stashes of chemical weapons in Iraq since 2003. The report indicates that not only have weapons been discovered in Iraq, but that more weapons exist.

But research it if you don’t believe me.

I know it’s a popular liberal argument but it’s proven not to be true. Add that top Dems voted to go to war and you have less finger pointing rights.

Now Bush landing on an aircraft carrier and declaring victory…That was stupid and you’re within logical rights to harp on that for the next ten years, or forever if you choose.

Bush got busted in Kennebunkport Maine for DUI and he was busted for cocaine and records were expunged.

If his last name was Kennedy he could have drowned a chick and walked and the coke would have been considered a party favor.

Carter destabilized the Middle East and Clinton was the reason for 9-11.

I served under all these men and I figure I have a good grasp on the realities of their reigns.

““There was an interesting article in the Washington Post today..”

Actually that is not an article. It is an opinion piece based on ….well who knows, some raving rant by a Right Wing like Limbore. It is important that one understand the difference between hard news and blather.

“So he’s the criminal for the 1976 DUI.”

And the additional DUI his daddy covered up in Texas. And yes, he is a convicted criminal – what part of that don’t you understand?

“So the late Ted Kennedy shall be known as, “Drunk Driver Killer Coward.” Clinton as “Whore Monger Impeached Liar.” Maybe Obama as “Gun Smuggling Community Organizer Coke Sniffing Over Thrower of Nations.””

If that pleases you feel free to go for it. I have no problem with the facts no matter where they may fall.

“Gets kind of childish doesn’t it.”

Your words, not mine and they do not alter the fact that Dubya was, is and always be a convicted criminal.

“As far as providing the dollar amount for Obama family vacations, no one is talking.”

So you cannot back up the statement you made. Got it.

"There was an interesting article in the Washington Post today and by the way, they have been backing Oboma This a small excert I received in an e-mail."

Nice try, but a 10 second google search showed me that article was written two years ago by a blogger named Matt Patterson and was never in the Washington Post. You, like others, need to stop believing the chain emails.

Once again the term is WMD. And no, “tons” were never found.

@AN.....a story I heard, not sure if it's true --- three days in a row, a feeble old veteran approached a Marine guard in front of the White House, asking to see President Bush recently. Each day, the Marine indulgently informed the man that President Bush no longer lives there. The old man approached the Marine on the 4th day and asked the same question, and the Marine did his best to answer respectfully. "Sir, you know that each of the last three days, I have told you that President Bush no longer lives in the White House". Finally, the old man responded, "Yes, I know, but I just like hearing you say it again".

There was an interesting article in the Washington Post today and by the way, they have been backing Oboma This a small excert I received in an e-mail.

And what about Oboma's character?
Obama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. Bush did it it was bad luck I inherited this mess. It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerlessness, so comfortable with his own incompetence. But really, what were we to expect? The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly?
In short: our president is a small and small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such a man in the Oval Office.
I am unable to print the whole letter as we are limited to space.

@ Jimi Lightfoot

Nobody is perfect but you have to cal a spade a spade. Bush was convicted once for Drunk driving, ran off the road and into a Bush (oddly enough) Cheney has two DUI's. Bush was also convicted of Cocaine possession in 1973. He served probation and had his record expunged (its good to have a dad who was in charge of the CIA). He also filed false financials and defrauded investors in his company "Arbusto Oil" out of about $200 million. (Arbusto oil was the company started with financial backing from the Saudi's and Bin Ladens). And then there is still the case of the missing $2.3 Trillion that was announced to be missing ("10 Sept 01"). Just goes to show you how united and powerful the Republican party is.

So he’s the criminal for the 1976 DUI.

So the late Ted Kennedy shall be known as, “Drunk Driver Killer Coward.” Clinton as “Whore Monger Impeached Liar.” Maybe Obama as “Gun Smuggling Community Organizer Coke Sniffing Over Thrower of Nations.”

Gets kind of childish doesn’t it.

As far as providing the dollar amount for Obama family vacations, no one is talking. But if common sense hasn’t been completely replaced with unreasonable hatred, you should know that a plane ticket to Texas is plenty cheaper than a ticket to the Bahamas, Italy or France. Then you add on the cost of a one-time truck shipping fee of armored vehicles to Texas that stayed there versus flying armored vehicles to vacation spots, back and forth, out of the country.

I think you get the picture. I don’t need the actual bill in front of me to prove common sense logic, just like you should know a Rolls Royce costs more than a Chevette. If you don’t, I got a car to sell you.

Speaking of France. I do know that Biden just spent, well I mean, the American taxpayer just spent $585,000.50 for a one night stay in Paris for Joe. That was for the room only. The average bill for transportation and security for his little tryst has run up to a million dollars.

I guess that’s why we can’t afford to open up the White House for children school tours.

“I don’t know why some call Bush ‘The Criminal.’”

Golly, could it because he is a criminal with multiple convictions (along with the Dark Lord Cheney) for driving while drunk? Let’s see if I can make this a little more clear – if you are arrested for drunk driving – then convicted of drunk driving – you are therefore a CONVICTED CRIMINAL.

“So maybe some should stop declaring Bush a criminal …”

Sorry, not going to happen because Dubya is and always be a Convicted Criminal.

“I do know that Obama and family have cost the taxpayers more with their vacations.”

And please provide proof – in American dollars – of that assertion. Be accurate and specific, thank you.

“So let’s stop calling Bush a criminal.”

Why? The guy is a criminal it’s a simple fact. Oh wait, I get it, it is better to lie about it rather than tell the truth. Hmmm, nope, not going to happen. The guy is a convicted criminal of the lowest kind who endanged the lives of innocent people while driving drunk.

I love how anson only has insulting names for republican presidents, and none for say, carter, widely regarded as one of our worst presidents, but anson wont insult him because there is a D next to his name. So much hate from you anson. Its sad that you cant just disagree with someone and not slander them. And you call others here sophmoric??

I don’t know why some call Bush “The Criminal.”

If it was due to declaring war on Iraq, he had majority approval from Congress including Hillary, Pelosi, Reid and the rest of the Democratic elite.

And WMD’s WERE found in underground containers filled with tons of Sarin and other nerve agents.

Afghanistan was also a Congressional approved conflict.

Not so with our 1 billion dollar “not so covert” involvement with the overthrow of the Libyan government. That was NOT approved, or even ran by Congress or the American people.

Congress didn’t approve Obama’s backing of rebels that overthrew Egypt’s government either.

So wouldn’t that make Obama “The Criminal?”

So maybe some should stop declaring Bush a criminal unless they want some scrutiny on the facts of Obama’s unlawful and un-Constitutional rule.

While we are on comparisons, let’s talk vacations between the two. Who took more?

Don’t know don’t care.

I do know that Obama and family have cost the taxpayers more with their vacations.

Bush took most of his vacations at his Crawford Ranch. Taxpayers didn’t have to pay for whole floors of foreign and lavish hotels. Bush didn’t have to fly armored vehicles across the world.

Common sense should tell you keeping security at a static location in CONUS is cheaper, easier and more efficient than moving what amounts to an army every couple of months.

So let’s stop calling Bush a criminal and let’s bask in parental pride while Sasha, Malia Obama Vacation at Bahamas' 'Atlantis' Resort along with two plane loads of friends, security and armored vehicles.
