***obama's failure on the financial crises...no convictions by his justice dept on the thousands of people doing millions of criminal acts that have defrauded millions of Americans. Not one.

...and you have morons in here saying it is all the republican's fault. LOL! What a joke that is.

Every time you hear the paufaggays and the meezers say this just ask them the following:

"then why hasn't obama's corrupt justice dept gotten one conviction of all the fraud you are complaining about? lol! NOT ONE!

In fact, I am asking you pieces-of-shit that right now.

Clinton started it all by setting up the laws forcing lenders to lend to people without incomes, and Barney Frank and Chris Dodd made it worse. Bush went to Congress 17 times warning that this would happen. 17 times.

So you ended up with illegal aliens buying McMansions with NO credit, NO income, and NO jobs. Liar loans made to liars and forced to be done politically by liars in politics in the democrat party of the dumbest idiots on the planet. Chris Dodd got a loan that was below market on his house that saved him a few bucks a month as his incentive to pass laws that bankrupted the entire world. And obama is the biggest dummy of them all. He can't get a conviction on any of this, nor hes he even care.

What a laugh that is!

No wonder the smart money keeps the dumb shoe-shine boy in office. Massive fraud all over he place and NO convictions of any of them by the most corrupt administration in history. That is obama's legacy.

Obama's Staff Uses Autopen to Sign 'Fiscal Cliff' Legislation

No signing ceremony.
6:01 AM, Jan 3, 2013 • By DANIEL HALPER


President Barack Obama's staff used an autopen (a machine that mimics one's signature) to sign the "fiscal cliff" legislation that Congress passed on New Year's Day. There was no ceremony or photo-op for the autopen bill signing.
Obama reading

First, the White House announced that "the President signed into law." "On Wednesday, January 2, 2013, the President signed into law," said press secretary Jay Carney, suggesting that Obama had physically signed the bill. "H.R. 8, the "American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012," which makes permanent the temporary rates on taxable income at or below $400,000 for individual filers and $450,000 for married individuals filing jointly; permanently indexes the Alternative Minimum Tax exemption amount to the Consumer Price Index; extends emergency unemployment compensation benefits and Federal funding for extended benefits for unemployed workers for one year; continues current law Medicare payment rates for physicians' services furnished through December 31, 2013; extends farm bill policies and programs through September 30, 2013; and provides a postponement of the Budget Control Act's sequester for two months."

Within thirty minutes, the White House seems to have directed the pool reporter to send this note to reporters, from an unnamed "senior White House official": "We received the ['fiscal cliff'] bill late this afternoon, and it was immediately processed. A copy was delivered to the President for review. He then directed the bill be signed by autopen."

A couple hours later, the pool reporter again appears to have been directed to send this message to the press: "The fiscal cliff bill was received late this afternoon when POTUS was already here. A copy was delivered to POTUS. He reviewed the copy and directed the legislation to be signed by auto pen," writes the pool reporter. The reporter specifically notes that another bill, a defense bill, was physically signed by the president himself yesterday.

The pool reporter sends along a link to a "Department of Justice legal brief on the subject" of bills being signed by the autopen. Here's the link, which says, according to the memo from a deputy assistant attorney general in the George W. Bush administration, that the practice is legally fine in theory.

George W. Bush, though, never signed a bill with an autopen. Obama has now done it 3 times.

Nope. That doesn't qualify as SPECIFICS nor does a cut-n-paste from a hack entertainment site. Why don't you provide the details of WHEN the 3.8% of a sale is applied and how many people this will potentially affect when selling? C'mon now. Let's see it. Oh, my bad.

Does any one know if the Obamas went to Hawaii on vacation while he was a Senator or State Senator?

Has this become their vacation destination ONLY after winning the Presidency and knowing it’s an all expense paid vacation?

As far as I can tell, he only went to Hawaii when there was some family situation, and it was not a tradition until he became POTUS. Honestly, who could afford to go to Hawaii, even on a senator’s pay every year, and stay at a 5 star location for two weeks?

I do not begrudge him a vacation in the least. Fact is, given that his position is a high stress job, I would not even complain if he took a few days every quarter to unwind and relax. My BIGGEST complaint, and I think that of most thinking persons, is that, in the face of extreme austerity that we are facing as a nation, he still ventures to the islands. There are literally scores, if not hundreds, of places he could go for R & R at a fraction of the cost.

And it is not really about the dollars spent that irks me, although it does, it is the image and what that conveys to the American people. We know that he is aloof, cold, and disdainful of anyone who dares to challenge him or his agenda. But, he could at least TRY to come off as caring by staying closer to home for vacations as most Americans have been forced to do.

Al Capone, that scion of Chicago gangstership and political brokering is credited as saying,“You can get much farther with a smile, a kind word and a gun than you can with a smile and a kind word.” That seems to be summing up Obama and his administration. The gun of course is metaphorical, as the progressives are trying to take all of them from everyone except the criminals.

It’s my understanding he didn’t start his “traditional Christmas Vacation” to Hawaii til after he was elected.

I know the Kennedy family owned a Palm Beach retreat, with security already built in, to escape the DC and Cape Cod winters to.

President Kennedy would never have done this on the taxpayers dime. He rejected accepting his earned salery. I disagreed with some of what he stood for but I acknowledge that he was an honorable man.

And Bush and Reagan escaped to their homes in Texas and California to vacation or work. Oblamer escapes to an extravagent, multi-million dollar retreat in Hawaii that requires a lot of security and 18 hours of flying at least 2 planes and all their entourage. Three times they’ve flown double-duty as Moochelle couldn’t wait for Barry in ’10 and ’11 and he flew out later and this year when he couldn’t get his job done in time so instead of staying and doing it, he flew to HI, flew back to DC and then back to HI again. You know if he was footing the bill, none of this would be happeneing. They’re living off the backs of the middle class.

And what exactly did obama do upon his return during the “fiscal cliff” finalization. Nothing, it would appear and based on all accounts. And of course he did sign anything either while back in Washington. Pure political theater for an additional 4 million bucks.

He got a breather from Moochelle. It is well known that they maintain separate bedrooms. The designer who did Mooch’s room in the WH was on TV talking about it at the time. They don’t get along and took a breather on the taxpayer’s dimessssss!

What people are missing, is that when we go on vacation, we absorb the expense of that. If you are fortunate to get vacation days, or take time off your job, or your business, THAT IS ALL YOU GET. YOU then pay for all related vacation expenses out of your pay or savings. POTUS should get the TIME OFF WITH PAY, but HE SHOULD BE PAYING FOR HIS WAY. Plane tickets and all are up to him. Wherever he wants to go who cares!!!!!
