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 hes forced to sacrifice any more of his multi-million dollar getaway.

I guess that bill was so URGENT! NOT!!!
He does not need to be present to officially “sign” his name. They have a machine for that.
Wow. I didn’t know his teleprompter was so versatile.
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!
More than anything this shows us where Obamas priorities are
He’s an insufferable arrogant bastard.
Emphasis on arrogant and bastard used in the biblical sense.
That's because Obama is The PRISSYdent of The United States.
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.
His going back to Hawaii frosts me no end! He just loves sticking it to us.
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.
