Skip to comments.Obama's Year-Ending Presser…But I’m Not Done Yet!
Posted on 12/20/2014 6:33:10 AM PST by NOBO2012
We must have let the rest of the White House staff go on Winter Holiday Break early too, because as of this morning, still no transcript from yesterdays presser.
I gotta run, Ive got a flight to catch. See you next year.
Although there was this posted yesterday on the Big White site: DECLARACIONES DEL PRESIDENTE SOBRE CAMBIOS EN LA POLÍTICA CON CUBA. No English translation though because, as I just explained, a lot of people are already on holiday. I ran it through my special language pack however and it appears to be addressed to newly landed formerly illegal aliens. It explains how to get a Social Security number, a drivers license, food stamps, unemployment and ObamaCare. It also explains that first you have to join the Democratic Party and register to vote.
And Merry Christmas to you too, María José, Dreamer, studente, and futuro lídero.
So youll just have to rely on my synopsis of yesterdays all-female, all print media presser, as Im sure you were too busy to bother with it.
Because hauling crude via railcar is way safer than an environmentally insensitive pipeline

And finally, justifying his new, unilateral (remember when that used to be a bad thing?) Cuba policy, Barry told us:
If youve done the same thing for 50 years and nothings changed you should try something different if you want a different outcome.
Maybe he should send the same message to his own party, because after 50 years and trillions of dollars, the results of the Great Societys War on Poverty are less than spectacular:
When President Lyndon Johnson announced his Great Society plan to use the federal government to declare war on poverty in 1964, the poverty rate was around 14.7%. In 2012 the poverty rate was nearly unchanged at 15% (although todays poor are materially better off than in 1964).
So after nearly 50 years and 20 TRILLION dollars spent in Johnsons Great Society war on poverty, the poverty rate has remained virtually unchanged while the illegitimacy rate in the black community has skyrocketed from 25% to over 70%.
It took the people enslaved by the Soviet Union some 70 years to break their chains of the tyranny of communism with the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
We are 50 years and counting with the failed policies of big government liberalism as it pertains to poverty in general and the destructive dynamics in the black community in particular.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
The country is way past due for a course change.
Of course all that could change, since Big Guys not done yet. Hes still got 2 years, his pen and a phone.
Butt hey, listen to me getting all political on the Saturday before Christmas!
Its the holiday season! Weve landed in Hawaii, and its time to kick back for a couple of weeks! Let the partying begin!
We, too, will be taking a bit of a respite during the holidays: posts will be brief and recipes and adorable baby/ animal photos will always be welcome.
Now get out there with the millions of other Americans who forgot to do their shopping online and finish up your Christmas shopping. Only 4 more days!

I’m glad The One’s going to have a good Christmas because things are so tight around here we couldn’t afford to buy gifts (except for our grandchildren; didnt want to disappoint them) so we made fudge and candies and edibles to handout but it’s all good. We’ve accumulated enough junk over the years. We’re just glad we have a roof over our head at the moment. We’re thankful and know we’re much better off than many 3rd world countries so it’s all good...: )
More people I’ve talked to this week are celebrating with very frugal means.
In fact, there are very few Christmas lights up around here. It is either the economics of the times or the zeitgeist of the country, but the mood is somber and apprehensive.
He isn’t done yet... Who has he not apologized to? After Cuba who’s left? North Korea?
“.... but the mood is somber and apprehensive.”
It is what happens as reality sinks in...when people realize they do not have a government for and by the people but a government for and by the government. Combined with the disasterous economy (forget the manipulated stock market) and jobs situation, just for openers — makes for a bleak Christmas season only enjoyed by the Marxists who have created this horrific mess.
Obama is happy because he has a Republican Congress to push his agenda and shield him from the voters.
I just hung a few Christmas light on some bushes and we didn’t put up a tree. We just put a few lights on a ficus tree in the living room. Just not in the mood to do much celebrating this year. We are in the spirit to give thanks to Jesus for saving us on Christmas Eve and Day though. We are having a candle light service at church and that will lift our spirits though.
Is that an edited Lee Harvey Oswald pix? Sure looks like it.
thats obies cousin....lee harvey obama...of the texas obamas
Yeah. I googled it. Nice photoshop by you or someone.
Cigar aficionados are rejoicing. And those who want to buy running 57 Chevys
This is who zer0 is. Now that he is the ultimate lame duck...watch out.
The bastard’s commie father. I surmise?
its a fake document.. I made it myself....just minutes ago
dan rather just called....hes sticking by my story
He resting up for his next round of power grabbing executive decrees. IMO he is going to blitz the Republican congress with the objective of overrunning them with a wave of unilateral actions that are increasingly aggressive and broad. And why not? Whose going to stop him?
This "flood the zone" approach will have the clueless Republicans reeling and wondering where to begin to stop him. He will control the agenda. The next two years are going to be absolute chaos.
I wish it were not so but Republican weakness will be on full display.
You mean “fake but accurate”? ;)
