President Obama Returns
to Hawaii Vacation
Post-Cliff Deal

ABC News, by Devin Dwyer

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 1/2/2013 1:42:17 AM

Less than an hour after Congress and the White House resolved the fiscal cliff, President Obama boarded Air Force One to return to his planned Hawaiian holiday vacation. He boarded the plane at Joint Base Andrews in Camp Springs, Md., shortly before midnight Wednesday following a New Year’s Day of political drama on Capitol Hill. The 10-hour overnight flight was scheduled to arrive in Oahu around 5 a.m. local time Wednesday when he will reunite with First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia, who have been vacationing there since just before Christmas.

How nice for him! /s Priorities all in place. /s

Too bad the deal didn´t cut all funding for Air Force 1. That would have been sweet to see him go through airport security like the rest of us as he takes multiple hops in coach class red-eye flights to get back to his multi-millin dollar, tax-payer funded vacay.

Other than wasting a LOT of jet fuel, why exactly did 0bama leave Hawaii in the first place? It´s not like he helped things along...he could have given arrogant interviews from Hawaii.

Found out over the holidays that more relatives than I thought had voted for this poseur. Depressing. Very depressing.

Message: Dear Leader cares, he really cares. So much caring. He flew all the way to DC just to help people. Those greedy Republicans caved under the weight of his massive leadership skills, and now the nation is once again saved from their meanness and ignorance. Dear Leader saved the day, and now on the 7th day must he rest.

Whadda ya want from him? The poor guy’s been toiling tirelessly on our behalf over the past four years. Can we blame him for being in a hurry to get back to vacationing with his family? If spending more time with his family is apparently what he wants, putting in for early retirement would be the way for him to go.

Think “President Joe Biden.” People in the know say if you ask to see his birth certificate, he shows it to you without a moment’s hesitation. With Biden, I believe he’s pretty much a ‘what you see is what you get’ guy. With Obama, we certainly know better by now, don’t we?

Fourteen people died and over 30 were injured in a car accident on Wednesday after a bus and a truck crashed head-on and caught fire. The occurrence took place in the state of Guárico, central north Venezuela, the director of the Civil Protection Agency, Luis Díaz Curbelo, informed. The injured were taken to a local hospital and other nearby health centers, Díaz stated. One of the injured was taken to the northern state of Aragua given his serious health conditions caused by multiple burns. The causes of the accident were attributed to the rain and driving over the speed limit.

To smooth the path for financial backing from the U.S. Export-Import Bank and allay possible U.S. government concerns about him, Timchenko hired lobbyists from powerhouse Washington law firm Patton Boggs, according to emails and documents viewed by Reuters.

The document, emailed by White House senior adviser Maya Shankar and obtained by Fox News, also seeks applicants to join the federal government’s behavior modification team.

Santiago cathedral closed

The Catholic cathedral in the Chilean capital Santiago is to remain closed for five days after it was vandalised by pro-abortion activists on Thursday. About 5,000 protesters marched through Santiago in support of an 11-year-old girl who was raped, fell pregnant and is not allowed to have an abortion. Some 100 demonstrators entered the cathedral, wrecking confessional booths and shouting insults at worshippers. Abortion, even for medical reasons or in cases of rape, is illegal in Chile. It was banned during the rule of Gen Augusto Pinochet, the military dictator who governed Chile from 1973 to 1990. Chilean President Sebastian Pinera

The idea of a ‘workerist government´ has been peddled in Venezuela for some years now. The late Hugo Chávez did it, and President Nicolás Maduro is persistent about it. But what do they mean by this notion? One would take that to mean that all conflicts related to labor liabilities have been settled, or that the minimum wage keeps up with inflation, or that the social security system works. Unfortunately, reality gets in the way. The government keeps huge debts with public sector workers as reported by workers themselves. Strikes, labor disputes,

Today, believe it or not, is Mick Jagger’s seventieth birthday. (He was born on July 26, 1943.) Jagger seems, so far, to defy aging, but if you look closely there have been subtle signs. In 1995, for example, when Jagger was fifty-two, Hendrik Hertzberg noticed a change in some of the Rolling Stones’ lyrics. For decades, the song “The Spider and the Fly,” which is about a rock-and-roll singer getting picked up by a woman in a bar, had featured this couplet: She was common, flirty, she looked about thirty… She said she liked the way I held the microphone.

Abortion-rights demonstrators vandalized Chile´s main cathedral during a Mass and used pews as barricades during clashes with police. A group of demonstrators broke off from a largely peaceful protest calling for the legalization of abortion Thursday night and stormed into the Metropolitan Cathedral of Santiago, interrupting the homily. They painted walls with pro-abortion messages, broke ornaments and hauled pews all the way to the Plaza de Armas square in front of the cathedral. Police in riot gear rushed to the cathedral to contain them, and arrested at least two people.

The Sharkini, by Bad Aby Designs, is a gray swimsuit with a jaw-shaped cut-out at the midriff, complete with white leatherette teeth.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

I never thought the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case deserved nearly the attention it got. But reasonable people can disagree about that. What strikes me as unconscionable, however, is the way the supposedly objective media have not only sensationalized a tragedy but at times appear to deliberately bend the facts to fit a desired story line. Maybe it started with the use of pictures of a younger Martin or with the sudden embrace of the term "white Hispanic" to describe Zimmerman in order to more easily paint him as a racist. NBC News was the most egregious offender
