Obama Has Long Work List
to Tackle When He Returns

Associated Press, by Charles Babington

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/25/2012 2:33:42 PM

It´s hardly a secret that Barack Obama, like every president no doubt, muses about his ultimate legacy and spot in the presidential pantheon. He approaches his second term confronting tough and shifting challenges that will play big roles in shaping the rest of his presidency and his eventual place in history. In the coming months, Obama will have to decide where to be ambitious, where to be cautious, and where to buy time. He draws political strength from his surprisingly easy re-election in a bad economy. It´s partly offset, however, by Republicans´ continued control of the House,

Let`s be clear here, Obama spends all his time figuring out how to be as low down and devious as possible as he trashes the American Dream for those of us in the here and now as well as those on the way up. There is simply nothing to like about this individual.

This writer gives Obama way too much credit. he doesn´t want to be bothered with his job,just enjoy the perks and adulation of the morons who fell for his lies.

It´s easy to win re election when you spred and extra 6 trillion around,along with backdoor printing and stimulus.What he has is slick advisers who think destroying this country is some kind of game.

Exploiting weak people for their vote is a coward´s way to run a country.

That first line is a howler. Obama doesn´t "muse" about his legacy. He is completely consumed by how he is perceived. He doesn´t "muse" about anything. He´s got two speeds, slow and stop, where matters of State are concerned, so spare me his alleged musings. He wants white and successful people punished and he wants payback for slavery.

A dictatorship for him would be nice, too, as well as having no such messy things as Congresses and Constitutions.

As for his long work list, rest assured he will tell other people to solve the problems and come up with answers. Obama never works. He frolics. Unfortunately, he does it with our money, our liberty and our country.

Work ?? Work??
Well, to 60,848,820 of us ,
this lazy bum hasn´t done an honest day´s work in his life.
Unfortunately, we are in the minority.
Obama spends his days playing and watching an inordinate amount of tv.
Damian Lewis , the star of Homeland on Showtime and Band of Brothers recalled meeting Obama .
Obama told him how much he liked Homeland which surprised Lewis .
Damian: "When do you watch it?
Aren´t you supposed to be running the free world?"
Barack: "Well, on Saturday afternoons,
Michelle she takes the two girls, they go play tennis.
I go into the Oval Office.
I pretend I´m gonna work
and I switch on Homeland."
Last October Vanity Fair had a gushing piece on Barry.
He plays a lot more basketball than the public realizes.
The games are never listed on his official schedule, which is usually 2 hrs tops .
He often goes out in a small entourage
to the various basketball courts to attract less attention.
Most likely a couple of times a week.
We pay for a valet to fetch his special sneakers.
" The first hint came when a valet passed through bearing, as if they were sacred objects,
a pair of slick red-white-and-blue Under Armour high-tops with the president’s number (44) on the side. "
We pay for his likeness to be imprinted
on the basketballs.
Jodi Kantor´s book " The Obamas " had photographs of uniformed White House butlers
who are tasked with inflating Obama´s basketballs.
Michelle often describes how they both watch ESPN every day while they spend hours in the gym.
The next four years are going to be an orgy of parties and vacations on our dime.

The quote from the article that follows is a sick joke. "Obama said last Wednesday that gun control will be a central issue in his second term. "I will use all the powers of this office to help advance efforts aimed at preventing more tragedies like this," he said of the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass killings.

The president named an interagency task force to recommend anti-violence legislation within weeks. The strategy gives him room to distance himself somewhat from its recommendations if he wants, even though he named Vice President Joe Biden to chair the panel."

WASHINGTON - President Obama, who turns 52 Sunday, spent today playing golf with friends at Joint Base Andrews, but before he went he was briefed on the terrorist threat that will cause 21 U.S. embassies to close Sunday. (Snip) After the briefing, the president´s motorcade left the White House with golf clubs and at least one cooler in tow. Later, he planned to head to Camp David. Three groups teed off at Andrews, according to a White House official, including a smattering of old friends and former colleagues.

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama says there are no gimmicks to grow the economy — just difficult steps that require Washington´s focus. In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama is promoting a plan he says can break through gridlock. He´s calling it a grand bargain for the middle class. Obama says he´s willing to work with Republicans to reform the tax code for businesses. That would mean lowering rates but ending many loopholes and deductions. But Obama says he´ll only do it if money generated is used for infrastructure, training and job growth. In the Republican address, Sen. Susan Collins

BAKERSFIELD, Calif.— Five spectators were injured Saturday after shrapnel was sent flying at the demolition of a decommissioned steam power plant in California´s Central Valley, authorities said. More than 1,000 people had gathered at 6 a.m. in a nearby parking lot to watch the planned implosion at the plant owned by Pacific Gas and Electric in Bakersfield. After structures on the property came crashing down, a police officer at the scene heard a man screaming for help and saw his leg had been severed, police said.

A second event is planned for Oct. 19 at an Atlanta-area horse park that hosted events for the 1996 Olympics.

DALLAS – Hundreds of unarmed soldiers were waiting inside a building for vaccines and routine checkups when a fellow soldier walked inside with two handguns and enough ammunition to commit one of the worst mass shootings in American history. Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is to go on trial Tuesday for the November 2009 rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, which left 13 people dead and more than 30 others wounded.

Some U.S. senators have proposed an inventive plan for the cash-strapped Postal Service to raise cash: lifting a century-old ban on the agency shipping alcohol. The two Republican and Democratic senators late on Thursday introduced legislation to change a 1909 law that prohibits the Postal Service from shipping alcoholic beverages. The ban started a decade before prohibition-era laws made producing, selling and transporting alcohol illegal across the country. Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Tom Carper, a Delaware Democrat, and the panel´s senior Republican, Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, jointly sponsored the legislation,

The incumbent was underwater. Low poll numbers and a still-sluggish economy, soaring campaign promises of hope and change that never quite materialised. The opposition attacked him; so did some of the ideological absolutists in his own camp. That´s the situation Jim Messina inherited when he took the helm of President Barack Obama´s re-election campaign in 2011. And it applies to the thicket of problems he´s going to confront as the newly announced senior adviser to Prime Minister David Cameron´s 2015 re-election campaign. On the surface it is an odd-couple pairing – the University of Montana Democrat and the Oxford-educated

The announcement on Friday by Will Weatherford, the speaker of Florida´s House of Representatives, marked the biggest concession yet by the state´s Republican leaders to protesters´ demands for a top-to-bottom review of the law, which allows people in fear of serious injury to use deadly force to defend themselves rather than retreat.

The United States will temporarily shut down its embassies and consulates around the world Sunday, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt, as a precautionary measure, the State Department said Thursday. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed -- only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.” Sunday is a normal workday in many Arab and Middle Eastern countries. Embassies in Europe and Latin America would be shuttered that day anyway.

Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.

The administration has popped the bubble of hope some small business had that switching to part-time staff would let them escape the high costs of Obamacare. The Small Business Administration on Thursday created a website to explain to businesses that the government will simply tally up the number of part-time employees firms have to determine if enough hours have been worked to essentially create a "full-time equivalent." Some smaller businesses had thought that if they could get under the 50 full-time employee cap that activates Obamacare by cutting full-time workers and hiring more part-time workers they would escape

The nation´s most active death penalty state is running out of its execution drug. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Thursday that its remaining supply of phenobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. It wasn´t immediately clear whether two executions scheduled for next month would be delayed. The state has already executed 11 death-row inmates this year, and at least seven more have execution dates in coming months. "We will be unable to use our current supply of phenobarbital after it expires," agency spokesman Jason Clark said. "We are exploring all options at this time."

This means more than just an expansion of the probe to the FEC. It´s a new link to the Obama team. In May this column noted that the targeting of conservatives started in 2008, when liberals began a coordinated campaign of siccing the federal government on political opponents.

After purchasing the Boston Globe in 1993 for a then-record $1.1 billion, the financially troubled New York Times just announced it sold the 141 year-old paper to Boston Red Sox owner John Henry for a mere $70 million. That´s a straight 93% loss. Figuring in two decades of inflation would only make it worse -- as does the fact the Times retains the Globe´s pension liabilities, estimated at over $100 million. (snip) What might have sweetened the lower offer for the Times is that Henry offered a straight cash deal, which is expected to close sometime in September or October.
