Odds against him, Obama still betting on big deal

Mar 1, 2013 Full story: New York Post 188

President Barack Obama met in intense talks with congressional leaders at the White House Friday, hours before billions of dollars in mandatory budget cuts were to begin kicking in, both Democrats and Republicans staking out fiscal positions with the threat of a government shutdown looming.

Bush trip to Switzerland canceled amid threatened legal action

Posted by
CNN Political Unit

(CNN)- Former President George W. Bush's trip to Switzerland was canceled after human rights activists threatened legal action over allegations the former president approved the torture of terrorism suspects.

The New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights said it is prepared to file a complaint against Bush with the support of 50 NGOs, according to a statement from the group. CCR said Bush's presence on Swiss territory is required for a prosecutor to take action.

Bush was scheduled to speak in Geneva on February 12th at a dinner to honor the United Israel Appeal. CCR said the trip was canceled to "avoid our case."

That's when you tell someone you assume is black that they haven't yet walked upright, the implication being they are a monkey, ape or pre-human species like the Neanderthals. It's not exactly the "n" word, but its meaning is clear enough for most people (he certainly took it that way). You did that to some guy for Lord knows what reason. It was clear he was an admirer of Obama, but apparently he didn't tow the party line hard enough for your dogmatic standards. Worse, you later denied you'd done it, then finally admitted it but claimed it was ok, because you do that to everyone regardless of race and anyway liberals can't be prejudiced by definition.

I gave you the benefit of the doubt, which is why I said it was only "semi-racist". That is, racist not on purpose, but mostly due to thoughtlessness and an unwillingness to admit you'd wounded someone with a racist comment. In other words, you're not a full-fledged cracker, but you can and do make crackers nod their heads in agreement on occasion. The worst sophistry was when you claimed that since the racism was not in your mind, it must be in the reader's mind, so THEY are the racist. That'd make that poor island gentleman responsible for a racist remark against himself!!!

It was a very pathetic performance all around. A simple mea culpa would have sufficed, but your too proud for that. "Prejudice & Pride" - the Lawrence Wolf story. You still keep pretending the incident did not happen or that you can remember it only vaguely. I'm not surprised, as ever other post you make is just some smart-ass insult. Maybe subconsciously you are racist and it pops out when you are tired or off guard. Who knows?

When semi-racist cracker-like liberals appear, or nutjobs like Marine Corp Pat proposing murder as a political solution, I am not going to let them get away with it. Things like that need to be called out, especially when the perpetrators are totally unrepentant or in denial. Your post (and MCP's) are still there. I'd be happy to search for them.

Yep, since Obama won't lead and is only president in title only, it is only fair that his own idea of sequester is coming to pass. He tried to bluff once too often and was called. At the last ditch meeting all Obama ask for was more taxes. A request he knew would be rejected.

Capitol official: Obama wrong about janitors. Obama lies again spreading fear to many parts of America while he flies in circles and plays golf.

By KATE NOCERA | 3/1/13 7:45 PM EST
The Superintendent of Capitol tried to assure staff on Friday that employees will not receive a cut in pay as a result of sequestration, despite President Barack Obama’s claims to the contrary.
In a news conference earlier in the day, Obama warned that starting on Saturday “the folks who are cleaning the floors at the Capitol” and “the janitors, the security guards” would face a pay cut. But in a letter to supervisors and building staff, obtained by POLITICO, superintendent Carlos Elias said “the current sequestration plan does NOT include ‘Reductions in Force’ or Furloughs. The pay and benefits of employees WILL NOT be impacted as per out current plan.”

Calls to several Presidential libraries reveal that President Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, was on vacation more — 1,020 days — than any U.S. President since Herbert Hoover and possibly more than any other President in history.

Even President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was in office 12 years from 1933 to 1945, was on vacation less days than President Bush at 958 days. Calls to several Presidential Libraries reveal that no President can come close to Bush’s 1,020 days on vacation in an 8 year period. Even Lyndon Johnson, who spent 484 days at his ranch in Texas and at Camp David during his presidency, came in under Bush’s vacation time. Some claim the cost of Bush’s frequent trips to Crawford, Texas cost taxpayers upwards of $20 million, but the numbers are hard to confirm.

A recession started in 2001 as Bush took office after 22 million jobs were created during the Clinton Administration from 1993 to 2000. Bush began wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and presided over the loss of 4 million jobs. The debt when Bush left office was $10.6 trillion. In 2005, the Washington Post noted President Bush’s frequent vacations in a piece titled Vacationing Bush Poised to Set a Record as Bush took the longest single vacation — 5 weeks — of any President in 36 years.

President Bush spent 32% of his presidency on vacation.

Bush passed Reagan in total vacation days in 2005 with three and a half years left in his presidency. Reagan spent all or part of 335 days in Santa Barbara over his 8 year presidency. Bush spent 487 days at Camp David during his presidency and 490 days at his Crawford, Texas ranch, a total of 977 days.

When you add the days President Bush spent at Kennebunkport, Maine, he spent a total of 1,020 days away from the White House — close to 3 years. At 1,020 days, Bush was close to being on vacation more days than President John F. Kennedy’s total days in office (1,036). Representatives at the Nixon and Johnson Libraries indicate those two Presidents were on vacation less than 1,000 days during their terms.

President Obama has been on vacation 78 days from 2009 to 2011. At the three year mark into their first terms, George W. Bush spent 180 days at his ranch in Crawford, Texas and Ronald Reagan spent 112 vacation days at his ranch in California. Of course, staff was around all three Presidents on vacations and all White House aides argue that the commander-in-chief is never “out of touch” with work.

Calls to the Eisenhower and Truman Libraries reveal that those Presidents were not on vacation for more than 1,020 days. Eisenhower was on vacation for 456 days during his 8 years in office. When asked on whether President Herbert Hoover’s vacation days could be over 500 for 4 years a historian at the Hoover Library said,“No chance. Everyone agrees he was a grinder — he was the kind of guy for whom a vacation was rare — his vacation days were less than 50.” Hoover was in office from 1929 to 1933. Frequently Hoover either drove himself on brief trips or was driven by a military attachment or took the train.

President Obama was on vacation for 26 days during his first year in office (2009). Ronald Reagan spent 42 days on vacation during his first year in office (1981). President George H.W. Bush was on vacation less than his son, 40 days, in 1989, his first year in office. President Obama was on vacation less in his first year in office than the previous three Republican Presidents.

No President since Reagan was on vacation less than Bill Clinton. Presidents Clinton and Carter vacationed the least of any of the last seven chief executives.

(sigh)- So you are going to force me to get your post to find out exactly what racially-charged phrase you did use? Why do you humiliate yourself like this? Whether or not you meant it, he took it as a racial insult. That's plainly evident from his shocked reaction. And you did NOTHING afterwards in the way of an apology. That's disgraceful.

It doesn't matter what you link to race, does it? Any cracker could start using the "n" word based on that theory, then say he meant it just to be a rapper, or to be "cool", not due to race.(It'd be a lie, of course.) The proper thing to do is APOLOGIZE. Why is that so hard for you? Or did you actually mean it to be a racial slur so now you want to muddy the waters?

I'll give you one last chance to own up to what you did and offer an apology. If not, whenever I find an LW post, I will reply with a re-post of your disgraceful racist exchange with that unfortunate gentleman. I can easily cut & save the entire exchange. You don't come out looking like much more than perhaps a high-grade cracker or a haughty, unrepentant race-baiting wierdo. It's up to you.

Fair enough. I am not an overly-proud azhole like you. When I make a mistake, I admit it. However, what I read was quite unmistakable, so I doubt I'll have to apologize.

By the way, none of your evasions will be tolerated. If I find the quote, it's close to the way I portrayed it, and the offended person's response indicates HE (not you) thought it was a racial remark, no apology by me will be forthcoming. Then YOU apologize. Agreed?

It's not looking good for LW! He does not seem to know that people in that part of the Caribbean are black.(Earlier post by "St Kitty" make it crystal clear he's proud of Obama's racial origins and likely black himself.)

Shall I go on, or do we get that apology now? The person he insulted then went on to explain how shocked he was at the racial slur LW had used against him.

I can find that one too Larry!
