(Being purchased for them by Penny Pritzker and wealthy Chicagoans)
[ Michelle Obama's mother, Marian Robinson, has been bragging about getting to live in Hawaii next, in a $35 million beachfront mansion after leaving the White House in January 2013. "It was fun while it lasted", Miss Marion is quoted by Chicagoans as saying, "but wait until you see the place they're buying for Michelle and Barack!" ]

Today has been declared National Empty Chair Day, in honor of Clint Eastwoods speech on the closing night of the Republican National Convention where he dragged a chair onto the stage and held a Vaudevillian conversation with an invisible President Obama, inquiring about all the Hope and Change we were promised back in 2008 and all the other things the Obama administration has disappointed with in the last four years. Taking a picture of an empty chair and posting it on the Internet is now being called Eastwooding. Its proving to be a craze that could very well sweep the nation, so get in on the ground floor.
I couldnt help running a photo of the private screening room inside the $35 million Kailua, Hawaii estate that Penny Pritzker and other extremely wealthy Chicagoans are currently in the process of acquiring for Barack and Michelle Obama to move into when they leave the White House in January of 2013.
Sure are a lot of empty chairs in there!
And the lightings great for picture-taking.
Theres also plenty of room for the Obamas, their daughters, their Secret Service agents (which theyll have on staff for nine years after leaving Washington), and Michelles mother, Marian Robinson (the First Grandmother) to enjoy once theyre no longer the First Family and Barack is just a resident of the United States without the White House to call home any longer. Somehow, I doubt these people will be watching any documentaries by Dinesh DSouza while munching on their popcorn (with extra butter and cheddar cheese, because who are you kidding if you think Michelle eats as healthy as she tells YOU to eat in her ongoing
Crusade Against Other Peoples Obesity Lets Move Campaign).
Miss Marian (as shes called in Chicagos black community, employing a common honorific for older women who are well-liked and/or eccentrics) has been bragging for about two months now that shes never going to have to come back to a Chicago winter and is instead going to live the rest of her days in Hawaii, where her daughters insisting on a fabulous and exotic mansion being purchased for the Obamas by the wealthy Chicagoans who want favors from the soon-to-be-ex-President in the last days of his administration.
Penny Pritzker, heiress to the Hyatt Hotels fortune, escaped several financial investigations related to her involvement in a banking scandal because shes been Barack Obamas money woman since his 2008 fundraising campaign. Just as he quashed investigations of Black Panthers involved in voter intimidation in the 2008 election, it seems Attorney General Eric Holder tabled any exploration of possible wrongdoing by Obamas money woman in the banking mess. Nothing to see here, move along!
Pritzker has not lifted a finger to help with the 2012 campaign financing because shes in charge of leaning on large donors to fund both the Obamas post-presidential home and the Obama Presidential Library. If youve wondered why Pritzkers been absent from the Obama campaign team and why his fundraising has been so anemic, its because the wealthiest donors do not believe hes going to win a second term and are instead giving their campaign contributions to Mitt Romney so they can have some clout and favor with the incoming White House.
The people who are responding favorably to Pritzkers pleas to contribute to the Preventing Obama Homelessness Fund (or whatever theyre calling it) are those who would like to receive pardons or other preferential treatment in the period of time between November 2012 and when Obama vacates the Oval Office in January 2013.
This is a time-honored way that Democrats have raised money for their post-presidency, with all sorts of generous and unrestricted financial gifts awarded to them AFTER theyve left the White House but pledged to people like Pritzker while the current lame duck president stares at a calendar and counts the days remaining to turn a mega-profit off his place in history. Youll remember that Bill Clinton pardoned several felons on his last day in office and relatives of those criminals drew many zeros on checks to both the Clinton Presidential Library fund and also to a very private account that assisted the Clintons with the purchase of their Chappaqua, New York residence for his post-presidency.
Some people out there are confused about Ronald Reagans post-presidential home which is separate from the ranch he and Nancy owned in Santa Barbara (land that is now some sort of camp); the Reagans friends helped them buy the home in Simi Valley, California where they lived after the White House (and the presidential library and museum was built adjacent to this, where Reagans tomb is also located). Gerald Ford had help buying his home in Vail, Colorado near the village of Beaver Creek for his retirement and George W. Bush and his wife Laura had help from friends in the purchase of their home in suburban Dallas. This is how the post-presidency kicks off: with very wealthy people contributing one last time to a President before he leaves office, since therell never be another presidential campaign to fund (or quid to pro quo as a result).
Todays Labor Day and Im headed to a barbecue in Chicagos Bronzeville neighborhood hosted by a woman who knows Miss Marian Robinson well and is very well connected to the professional black community in this city. No doubt, well be talking quite a bit about who would benefit the most from donating generously to Penny Pritzkers Preventing Obama Homelessness Fund or to the presidential library project. It should be a fun and interesting day. Ive baked some of Ann Romneys M&Ms chocolate chip cookies to take with me (the ones she entered into the First Ladies BakeOff this year). I hope everyone loves them, because they certainly wouldnt have wanted the dry, bitter-tasting, burnt offerings that Michelle submitted to the contest.
Im hearing quite a bit about what the Obamas want in the library and the tone they wish to set for the first of his presidential memorials so tune in tomorrow for more of that, as well as in in-depth look at how an Obama Presidential Library will most likely present his place in history as compared to these monuments to other recent presidents.

Whether youre in Hawaii or Chicago or wherever, dont forget to snap a pic of an empty chair and upload it to the Internet so you can be part of the special National Empty Chair Day
just like Obamas soon-to-be-purchased Hawaiian Mansion is already participating!
How much tax on a 35 million dollar gift ? Oh wait Dems don’t pay taxes
Here ya go (again, in part) for some of us.
Pray it’s so. Vote the Marxist OUT, along with every possible democrat.
This story dates to September 3rd. It was posted here as a thread on-or-about that time. I take it with a grain of salt.
It seems to me that the “gift” of $$35 million should be subject to gift taxes to be paid by Zer0 and Mooch!
Great job formatting the entire spectacle!
Thanks very much, Red Steel.
And hopefully someday soon Danno will show up to Book ‘Em.
Q: How many poor Chicago black families kicked out of their homes in the cold of winter can you fit in Obama’s new mansion?
A: None. Now shut up we’re moving forward.
ObamaInc is to the poor and middle class as a wolf is to lambs... and msm is constantly blindfolding the lambs.
Didn't we already go through this house-buying crap with the Clintons and Terry McAuliffe?
This makes me ill. This isn’t justice. The empty chairs should be in jail cells.
Kevin DuJan is making a name for himself with these insider articles.
I hope he has hired a bodyguard.
Shouldn’t Joe’s chair be a barstool?
Maybe now they can all learn to swim.
But I have this one...
Seems like an appropriate "code name" for the Vice President....
Why would Moochelle and Jug Ears want a $35 million waterfront mansion when global warming is going to put it underwater?
Oh, and when are you inviting all your Occupy_whatever homies to camp out in your new digs?
Again .. being spoken of in secret Chicago southside circles .. hmmmm. Maybe there IS some truth to it .. it would have to be uber palatial for these uppity trashy clowns.
Red .. I’m choking over that chair!!! ROFL LLOLOLOL!!!! Let’s see what kind of garden she’d plant and dig in if they do, please God, leave the the cameras and pandering photo ops, the WH and our horrendous endless nightmare of misery and fury.
I never realized how much Joe looks like Walter....LOL!
Thanks onyx. It was easy. :-)
Is there an October surprise that Obama knows he can’t survive?
This is a pic I just got in an email, it's in Michigan and even better..........
saving for later....
I can’t see the picture, but I know it.
LOL. Sounds perfect for this week!
” Im hearing quite a bit about what the Obamas want in the library and the tone they wish to set for the first of his presidential memorials”
Start with a floor to ceiling mosaic of Saul Alinsky.
Many different types of presidential doors can be opened through grease (donations) from moneyed people and business types to an incumbent, regardless if he may not be around after finishing his term....which is still 3 months away.
Penny Moneypenny's fundraising efforts can be an indirect form of gentle extortion.....even a collection of funds for favors from the presidency before he leaves office.
The whole thing stinks to high heaven.....to me it's influence-peddling by an incumbent......and I'm dismayed that all the emphasis, attention and one-liners appear to be focused on the empty chair gig in this discussion.
” It drives me nuts seeing all the attention paid to empty chairs....and not on the fact that a SITTING president is raising money (millions) through a front for his personal use. This has never been done before....and I’m not sure it’s even legal, altho this has never stopped Obama before. At the least, it’s immoral and unethical....and it’s USING the power of incumbency in the White House for personal profit.”
Nothing to prevent Obama from selling the house, and pocketing 30 + million, either.
I have to believe Obama’s day is coming, and it is Election Day, November 6th!
Right now, I am focusing on our Sunshine state, getting Congressman Allen West reelected, getting Debbie W Schultz out of Congress along with Betty Castor, and a few other DEMS, and helping with Military voting issues.
Please spread these links as help is needed right now. The deadline for sending out Military Absentee Ballots is tomorrow, Sept.22nd! Collecting data on Military voting is also in progress but help is needed in every state.
It would be as fitting to have a golf club.....or a stool.
1000 pictures of himself.....all that matters to him, anyway.
Oh so true. Did you see the picture of himself put out by the White House, with the crescent moon (of course, another symbolism of islam) in the background, on the day that Armstrong died? Can you believe that???
Yes, I saw it. Obama really gets a kick out of “tweaking” us at every opportunity.
He sure does.
Go here to see the Best Empty Chair Yet!
Thanks for the grin.
May God keep watch.
Anyone have thoughts on that?
