Now That Is Some Kind Of Generous Gift

Just in time for the holidays, Emperor Obama gave a gift the length and breadth of which would warm the cockles of your heart - if you happened to be one of the recipients. Because what he gave is something most people cannot afford in this economy for themselves, but guess what? You were kind enough to do this for others!

Thanks to faithful No Quarter reader, French Nail, who alerted me to this article detailing the vast generosity of Obama - with your money. Oh, how I wish I was not making this us: Obama’s Holiday Bribes; PRO-OBAMA JOURNALISTS GET PAID WITH TAXPAYER MONEY, TO SURROUND OBAMA DURING HOLIDAY IN HAWAII. Yes he did, and yes we are:
Obama will enjoy a 13 day Hawaiian Holiday repleat with a corps of jouralists (sic), payed for with your tax-dollars.

Obama will enjoy a 13 day Hawaiian Holiday repleat(sic) with a corps of jouralists (sic), payed (sic)for with your tax-dollars.

(Dec. 11, 2009) — Just after the aftermath of yet another insult to our allies via the refusal to participate to the traditional events surrounding the award of the Nobel Prize including a dinner with the King, on the pretenses that the recipient was a very busy, sitting “President,” responsible for not one, but two, wars and facing the worst economic crisis “EVAHHH!”, the White House is quietly organizing yet another vacation-time for the Obamas.

They would have you believe that nothing has been decided yet, when in fact the logistics of booking their 13 day vacations in Hawaii, from December 23 to January 3, are in full swing!

And the invitations for the entourage are out!

Joy! Obama has found a way to keep the media in his back pocket. No doubt, he felt them begin to pull away, and like suitors, lavished them with an expensive gift. Except the cheapo didn't pay for it himself. Nope - you did. Merry Christmas to them!!!

Naturally, it wasn't the American press that reported this:
Yesterday, December 10, Laurence Haim, the only French-Press-accredited, White House correspondent — but for the AFP — revealed that she had received an email inviting her and a guest to stay for the duration of Obama’s trip to Hawaii, at a Hotel next to the Obamas’ vacations spot. Her revelations were aired on the French TV leading evening news program.

To listen to the program in French, go to the 20:00 mark in the broad cast at http://www.zataz.com/news/17388/canal-plus–regarder-gratuitement.html

(UPDATE – 12/13/09: 10:10 PM — The audio file has now been archived, and moved to a new url: http://player.canalplus.fr/#/299716 )

According to Haim, the entire corps of White House correspondents, domestic and international has been invited (with a guest of their choice), to follow the Obamas under the sun at the American taxpayer expense.

In times when the American people are facing a bleak and sobering Christmas, when millions have lost their jobs and homes, the Obama Court is relocating to a Hawaiian paradise on the public dime. And to insure the cooperative silence of the Main Stream Media, it is bribing the lackeys of the press, with lavishing and outrageous favors.

This would be cause enough to raise eyebrows, but since when is 13 day vacation outside of the mainland U.S.A. accpetable (sic) the “President” of a nation at war?

I guess Christmas at home in Chicago or New Year at Camp David does not fit the standards of the Grandiose Obamas (emphasis mine).

Probably not Historic enough!

I love the snark, but I bet it sounded better in French (what doesn't? Bear in mind that it was written in French and translated.). But no doubt - it wouldn't have been "historic" enough. I had been wondering the same, too, why they didn't go back to Chicago or to Camp David. But no doubt, the writer got it just right.

Isn't it refreshing to see SOME in the media finally waking up to Obama and who he really is? About time. Though I don't expect those reporters plus one in Hawaii at a luxury hotel on OUR DIME are going to look too deeply anytime soon.

You know what would make me happy in the New Year? For this kind of bribery to stop with these politicians, be they the president, senators or representatives. If they or their plans cannot stand on their merits, then they deserve to fail. I am way, way past over it. How about you?

As happy as I am that Obama is not spending Christmas in Chicago, stinking up the place, I am so pissed off that our tax dollars are being spent on his propaganda machine. This guy seems to be addicted to the constant flash and clicking sound of cameras surrounding him.

From what I've been reading in the European news (especially France where they seem to have really turned on Obama) they have already figured out that he's a narcissist...and for the French to realized this, that's quite a revelation!

I keep hoping that out own press will wake up, there are still too many that are willing to kiss this guy's a$$.

Personally, there's not enough money in the world to get me to stay or be within a mile of that asshat and his family.

ME, I am sure you are just fine with Obama being all the way in Hawaii (I bet Logistics Monster isn't too thrilled, though!!). But yeah - it is just absurd when people can't afford to give to charities, can't afford to pu tfood on the table, much less give gifts to their kids, and their tax dollars are going to pay for the fawning over this narcissist. Just infuriating.

I am amazed at how fast the Europeans are seeing through him, too. But the way his poll numbers are going, more Americans are waking up.

Along those lines, my Obot brotrher had something at Facebook on 5 things that need to change in the health care bill. It was from MoveOn.Org, to which I used to belong. It juswt burned me up - if it wasn't for groups like MoveOn, and unthinking Obots who didn't give a damn abt lying, cheating, stealing, and rampant misogyny, we wouldn't HAVE this bozo in office! We would have the person who would have rolled up her sleeves and gotten to work getting others to work. Instead, we have Obama vacationing in HI for 13 days, the Senate and House giving away the store to get this bill passed which, if it was GOOD, wouldn't need this kind of arm-twisting, and someone who has to have that camera clicking left and right...

Sheesh.

Mary Ellen said...

Yeah- I'm just loving all this whining coming from the Obots. But what really blows me away is that they are all crying about how much they hate this bill and what a disaster it is...then they get mad because Lieberman or other Republicans voted against it. Idiots.

I'll have to admit, I did have a little bit of fun cleaning the cage for my granddaughter's guinea pig cage. They always used one corner of the cage as their "potty", so I made sure that I put Obama's picture from the newspaper right on the spot. I did that twice...it felt so good!

Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

ROTFLMAO - you are TOO damn funny, Mary Ellen! What a great way for me to start the morning - with a laugh from reading your comment!!

And good thinking!!

I know - that hypocrisy abt Lieberman made no sense to me, either. So typical. "Vote For the Obama bill!" "Wait - the Obama bill sucks - why did they vote for it?" Pitiful.

Again, thanks for the laugh!

Isn't it amazing that with all that paid media surrounding Obama on his vacation, the only thing he could say about the attempted bombing of almost 300 people, is to not make a big deal out of it...then he went to his golf game.

His Obot propaganda machine says he's projecting "calm".

Why Obama Stays Silent
Marc Ambinder notes that by not making a public statement on the terrorist plane attack on Christmas, President Obama is trying a "tough and novel approach" in dealing with such incidents.

Here's the strategy: "Let the authorities do their work. Don't presume; don't panic the country; don't chest-thump, prejudge, interfere, politicize (in an international sense), don't give Al Qaeda (or whomever) a symbolic victory; resist the urge to open the old playbook and run a familiar play."

"In a sense, he is projecting his calm on the American people, just as his advisers are convinced that the Bush Administration projected their panic and anger on the self-same public eight years ago."


Now, if "projecting calm" is another way of saying "projecting bullshit"...I agree.

You kid me!! That is SO disgusting!! And to think Americans need to look to the foreign press to figure out what is going on here is just too sad.

Hey Amy, OT, but I was wondering if you would be so kind as to read my latest article and make a comment: http://sonicninjakitty.wordpress.com/2009/12/23/this-ones-for-the-girls/

I would be SO happy to hear you opinion!

I "second" Mary Ellen.
Could not have said it better (I'm not a MaryEllenbot!...she just says it so well!)
Good grief.
Jesus, take the wheel!!!

Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

Hey, Nazareth Priest, that is one kind of "bot" I could stand - a Mary Ellenbot! Teehee! She DOES say it so well, doesn't she? Amazing...

Sonic, I will try and get by your site this week (I am traveling, and unfortunately, have limited computer time). I'll do my best, though - thanks for the invitation!

Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

Mary Ellen, I was just looking at some of the crapola coming out of the Administration abt the bombing. Really remarkable, isn't it? And Obama - Projecting "Calm"?? How abt projecting INDIFFERENCE?? He plays GOLF after hearing abt this attempt?

He really is clueless, isn't he? Wow...
