Obama goes back on vacation without signing cliff bill
Cain ^

Posted on 01/02/2013 9:11:22 AM PST by ConservativeMan55

After spending months telling Americans that the fiscal cliff deal was the most important thing facing their nation, Barack Obama has gone back to his vacation. Within a few hours of the bill's passage last night, he was enjoying the comforts of Air Force One, en route to Hawaii. Heaven forbid he’s forced to sacrifice any more of his multi-million dollar getaway.

He does not need to be present to officially “sign” his name. They have a machine for that.

They do, and the President could authorize the use of auto-pen. It could also be sent to Hawaii for his signature. This is much ado about nothing.

The bill still sucks either way.

It won’t be done by a machine. He wants to sign it but he wants his vacation first.

He wants to make a big show of it

“”He does not need to be present to officially “sign” his name. They have a machine for that.””

Can’t we get a “machine” to occupy the White House too?
Whoops! we already have one of those - programmed by someone we just haven’t identified yet!

He’s an insufferable arrogant bastard.

Emphasis on arrogant and bastard used in the biblical sense.

Much ado about nothing by the author. The agreement was reached and passed in both houses of Congress. The Presidents signature will come once it’s prepared for his desk and that could be days. Also can’t it would become law even if he doesn’t sign it in a certain number of days assuming he didn’t veto it. Good, bad or indifferent the process was to reach an agreement which they did.

0bungo is rubbing our noses in it. He squanders millions on jet flights to Hawaii and back again while all anyone can talk about is the fiscal cliff. How many billions in raises for Federale trough feeders while all anyone can talk about is fiscal cliff?

“”More than anything this shows us where Obamas priorities are””

I’m sure everyone has noticed that EVERYTHING is at the TOP of his PRIORITY list! Haven’t figured out yet exactly how that works but that’s ok - neither has he!

Actually, because we are at the end of a congressional session, if he does not sign it, the bill will not become law. This is called a “pocket veto”, and only can happen if a law is passed within 10 days of the end of a congressional session, such as now.

So he will have to sign it for it to become law. My guess is he’ll do a big signing ceremony, and use it to again claim that he won’t bargain on the debt limit.

The “urgency” was always fictional. Obama had already stated that he wouldn’t actually start cutting anything in January, and the tax rate increases wouldn’t actually apply until people do their taxes, which for quarterly filers wasn’t until March.

Obama could control the withholding amounts directly, notwithstanding the tax rates, and I believe the changes to withholding were already “on hold”.

The SS tax increase is not, but they didn’t change that anyway.

The "urgency" was because if they didn't get it done by tomorrow, the 112th Congress would be ended and the Senate bill will have expired.

If they didn't get it done by tomorrow, they'd have to start over again with new players and a smaller Republican House and Senate.

He and his family just cannot have enough of other people’s money. Guess he always wanted to be a high flyer and this is his 8 years to do so.

Like Obama, I am sure the food stamp crowd living at their parent’s home after college are happy getting another month of gourmet meals.

I tell you what, when you had 3 months of unemployment somehow you got a job back in the 80’s! All they have done in D.C. is procrastinate on the big issues, blame the GOP including George W. Bush for this cliff all the while those thriving on all the layers of benefits live an easy life.

What a waste.......

Saw him being interviewed by Babwa Walters last week. He said his favorite perk of being president was Air Force 1. And boy has he ever max'd that perk!

Aren't his daughters supposed to be in their exclusive private school today or something? You know, the one with private security who are all packing heat.

Oh wait a minute. Excusivity is a no-no for other people, not them.

I’ll second that emotion and add..

“Barry Soetoro is a bastard coated bastard with bastard filling.”

I also use the b word in the biblical sense in order to not give up my “no swearing” vow.

Returning to vacation adds $3 million MORE to the $4 million tax payer vacation.

Can’t Congress stop this some how?

Oh yeah, Congress is going to stop the POTUS from his vacation.......like they stopped this massive tax fraud that just passed, like they stopped the ONE TRILLION DOLLAR tax from Obamacare that kicked in yesterday, just to name a few. Face it, there is no stopping Barack Obama, we either accept it or we fight, Congress is helpless.
