At a fundraiser today in New York, First Lady Michelle Obama expressed confidence in her husband's chances for reelection. "On Nov. 7 we're going to party hard," she said. Election Day this year is November 6. From the pool report: "After hearing my husband talk about his values and his vision at the debate last night, I'm pretty fired up," she said. "Let me tell I am so glad last night was such an awesome, awesome event," she said.

As if that's not what they've been doing for the past four years...
Sorry Lady, America will be partying hard, YOU and your old man will be packing ..

Mooch will divorce him when he loses. No more free vacations, concerts,adulation, free designer clothes...
She'll take him for half of future earnings in return for letting him go back to Reggie Love.

There might be a party, but it won't be at the WH. Please, dear Lord, evict the grifters from our WH, and return our country to its Founding Principals.

Be sure and have the tv cameras to show you guys partying hard when tens of millions of Americans are out of work. That should go over real well...maybe even start a party in the streets. And, when you lose, make sure the cameras are there to catch your new reality show.

…"such an awesome, awesome event. " Thus speaks Big Moo, the hulking amazon so carried away by the majesty of Barry she couldn't keep her hands apart and had to clap no matter what the rules were that the audience had agreed to uphold. And she wants us to know they are going to "party hard." Nothing new here...they'll be consistent with having partied hard for the last four years and doing their damndest to destroy our beloved America. Go away, Moo. Please. And until the plane takes off with you, the fam, and whatever your last load of boot is, at least shut up.

Of course you will. You'll throw your "off to permanent vacation in Hawaii" party. Heck if I could "work" for four years and spend the next forty living in the lap of luxury, I would be partying too. One minor point of course is that you did not earn this, just like you have never earned anything in you entire life and America knows this. You are a classless, clueless, grifter and nothing you ever do will change that. And you know it. So enjoy the money, you did not earn it. Surround yourself with suck-ups: they just want to leech off of you like you have leeched off of America.

Yes, Moo-chelle, packing parties are hard.

Trying to decide how to pack all that stolen china and silverware -- not to mention all those bed linnens and art off the walls -- that is going to be really hard work.

I'm sure all the Demon-RAT senators and representatives that will have lost their jobs on November 6th will be happy to come to your packing party.

Heck, I'll be happy to come help -- though I will probably be very hung over from celebrating Romney's victory the night before. But that won't stop me if you need me. I'm just that sort of American!!!!!

Aren't the Obamas at the end of the timeline for fundraising? It has been going on for 4 long years.

According to HillBuzz, the party will not be at Grant Park this time. No plan is underway to have a big victory bash there.

I don't believe they are realistically planning on a 2nd term. He was speaking the truth when he said, "When I was pResident". She is salivating at the thought of partying in Hawaii. She will probably move to their new 35 million dollar house on Nov. 7th. to get the girls' enrolled in their new private school after the Thanksgiving holiday.

I had lunch today with two former Obama supporters (NYC Dems).

They had both decided even before Romney got the nomination that they would vote AGAINST Obama no matter who the Republicans nominated. Now they are voting FOR Romney.

We scheduled a celebratory lunch for November 7th.

No more partying on our dime Mrs. O. I think they will stay together because there will still be lots of publicity for a few years, like with Clinton, and opportunities to make speeches, write books, and have countless idiots pay for them to vacation, etc.

No, I don't doubt that Moochelle will be partying hard on November 7... and every day until she is forced to leave the White House on January 19. She's one to not miss a chance to spend money like crazy when taxpayers have to pay for it. You can be sure a couple of classless people like Mooch and Zer0 will trash the WH worse than Slick Willie and PIAPS when they left.

Would that be in the "same airplane hangar where the Clintons sought to steal the celebration from the newly sworn in President Bush!

The Clintons and Obamas are made out of the same cloth. They both have no honor or respect for authority unless it belongs to them!

Also, the liberal press "chose" to decide who got the TV time, not to just "report" the news!

Michelle will party hard until the Romney's move in. She will squeeze in four more expensive, lavish and luxurious trips before she leaves. She feels entitled, and the taxpayers will foot the bill once again. Her people are buying the 0bama's a 35 Million Dollar House in Hawaii. She has done pretty well for herself, but come January, she will be on her own dime.

Clinton White House’s Conspiracy
Theory of Right-Wing Conspiracy Theories
ABC News, by Chris Good    Original Article

If Bill Clinton’s political camp was known for believing the right wing was out to get him, then this undated memo from his administration codified his team’s suspicions. The memo was released today in the latest, thousands-of-pages-long batch of Clinton White House documents to be posted online by the William J. Clinton Presidential Library & Museum. The National Archives have been releasing tranches of Clinton documents, previously withheld under the Presidential Records Act, every two weeks this spring. Reportedly authored by Chris Lehane, then a young White House aide who would later serve as press secretary for

KUALA LUMPUR - About 100 Malaysian Muslim activists protested on Friday outside the US embassy against the coming visit by President Barack Obama, denouncing him as an enemy of Islam. The demonstration underscored the delicate nature of Obama´s trip to Muslim-majority Malaysia, which will make him the first siting US president to visit in nearly half a century, a period marked by mutual distrust. The protesters marched to the embassy in Kuala Lumpur from a nearby mosque after Friday afternoon prayers, shouting "God is great" and "Obama is the enemy of the Prophet Muhammad." They also bore placards and banners

This is not a joke, but it is funny. It´s also practical. Argentina´s National Institute for Agricultural Technology (INTA) has invented a way to convert cow flatulence into usable energy, and it involves putting a plastic backpack on a cow. In other words, cow fartpacks are here.(snip)Here´s how the fartpacks work: tubes run from the backpack into the cows´ rumen (or biggest digestive tract). They extract about 300 liters of methane a day, which is enough to run a car or a fridge for about 24 hours. Pablo Soranda, INTA press officer, told FastCo.Exist that the project is more about making a point than

Gov. Terry McAuliffe plans to announce today that he will shrink the time violent felons must wait to seek reinstatement of their voting rights and will remove some offenses from that list. The policy slated to take effect April 21 comes on top of years of work to streamline the process, and aims to make the system easier to understand and to allow more felons to petition the state more quickly. In a series of changes to the state´s restoration of rights process, McAuliffe plans to collapse the application waiting period from five to three years for people convicted of violent felonies

The two bombers who killed and maimed innocent people at the Boston marathon a year ago had come as refugees to America, from conflicts that America and her people did nothing to cause. They had been granted the privileges of a law-abiding democracy, including education, health care and the precious freedoms for which Americans have fought in two world wars. Their situation was incomparably better than it would have been, had they stayed behind in Chechnya. Among the many privileges that they enjoyed religious freedom was by no means the least important. They were able to attend their local mosque, to take part in its services and

PATERSON — Mayoral hopeful Aslon Goow Sr. claims dirty politics are at play after it was revealed in federal filings that he had been arrested 15 times, charges that had been expunged, according to a report in The Paterson Press. The bombshell came as Goow, a former councilman and one of eight running for mayor in New Jersey´s third-largest city, lost a civil lawsuit in which he claimed Paterson police targeted him in an investigation for attempting to apprehend an suspected burglar in a high-speed chase in 2006, the paper reported.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his
