OMG, I hadn't thought of that as a very possible advantage. However, if he could do as much damage as he did with the Democrat Congress I still don't think we could stand another 4 years. Maybe he would have more time to attend daily briefings if he was around and not flying to the next campaign meeting. He did manage to miss over 60% of those briefings, though.

I think they went and played golf once...

Oh then there was Bowels/Simpson that dear leader just ignored...

Well based of the responses on CD, I would say that our country will end, there will be a nuclear attack against Israel, and Obama will get in a few good games of golf while passing out money to the poor.

Thanks for the laugh. It will upset the Republicans that they won't be able to hold unemployed Americans hostage again, those patriotic scamps. I look forward to them losing the House and their numbers being reduced in the Senate.

More spending on the tax payers dime who are losing jobs and their homes.........money is suppose to be spent, but not at this rate and certainly not if it has to be borrowed.
1.4 BILLION Spent On The Obamas In 2012 – British Taxpayers Only Spent 57.8 Million On The Royal Family

Never before has so much money been spent on a president and his family during a single year
-The Obamas have the "biggest staff in history at the highest wages ever"

-While Obama has been in office, Air Force One has been "running with the frequency of a scheduled air line"
-Obama has 469 senior staff working under him, and 226 of them make more than $100,000 a year

-There is always at least one projectionist at the White House 24 hours a day just in case there is someone that wants to watch a movie.

-The "dog handler" for the family dog Bo reportedly makes $102,000 per year and sometimes he is even flown to where the family is vacationing so that he can care for the dog.

I'd like the dog handler job........I work very well with dogs!!


Wheres the Change???

In a previous article, I detailed how the U.S. Congress is also living the high life at your expense. The following are a few facts from that article....
-In 2010, the federal government spent $33,387 on the hair care needs of U.S. Senators.
-In 2010, U.S. Senators pulled $72,370 out of the "Senate Restaurant Fund".
-In 2010, U.S. Senators took $166,673 out of something called the "Senate Gift Shop Revolving Fund".
-In 2010, an average of $4,005,900 of U.S. taxpayer money was spent on "personal" and "office" expenses per Senator.

That would be President Bush who told Congress that, I understand they both look very similar so it is easy to be confused.

The biggest "under the radar" issue I hope he tackles is student loan reform of some type. We need to re-think education in this country. Forcing people into massive amounts of debt for the crime of becoming educated is no way to run a progressive democracy.

All this will be underscored by WW3 via Israel though.

Obama did say, "they had to seat in the back seat".........that means "get in and shut up"!!!

Nothing like seating in the back seat to be ran off the cliff.........kind of like bringing a gun instead of a knife to the party..........
