Obama heading back to DC in rare vacation break

In a rare move for him, the president planned a break in the middle of his Martha's Vineyard vacation to return to Washington on Sunday night for meetings with Vice President Joe Biden and other advisers on the U.S. military campaign in Iraq and tensions between police and protesters in Ferguson, Missouri.

Could the real reason Obama is returning to Washington be to take charge of Governmental efforts to hang yet another worker **("middle")** class White cop? Has he lost confidence in his pal Holder?

Consider Justshootthebastard and the other "weird sisters" gathered around a cauldron stirring a wicked brew in Macbeth, scene 1:

Justshootthebastard...
Round about the cauldron go;
In the poison'd entrails throw.
Toad, that under cold stone
Days and nights has thirty-one
Swelter'd venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i' the charmed pot.
All weird sisters...
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

The headline is wrong. Obama is taking a break from his 6 year long vacation, being interrupted for just a short time by the nation's business.

He and Michelle are a disgrace. They are constantly taking luxury vacations at taxpayers' expense. They live like royalty off the backs of the working class.

Article ONE, Section ONE, of the United States Constitution has been violated by the elected representatives in Washington. They have made themselves the ELITE beyond the laws of the common man.
The states should take their power back while Washington sorts itself out.

The solution for the "do-nothing" problem created by the tea partiers is to vote them all out of office. The problem is that they're extremists who're blindly committed to spending lots of taxpayers' dollars to make sure not a penny is spent on doing anything worthwhile. What they lack in economic sophistication and ability to legislate they more than make up for in reckless and wasteful zeal.

Decentralizing government power by dismantling legislative authority would open the door even wider for states so inclined to discriminate unfairly against women and minorities. The mentality of the old South would rise again even more than it has in the hands of the tea partiers.

Obama and rich-Liberals aristrike Iraq.
And, Obama is playing Golf?????

Obama and rich-Liberals are dropping bombs on people's heads.

(And, of course, Wall-Street support Obama, beacause Wall-Street loves golf and the rich.)

Can't you care about people's minds in foreign-countries???
American-Politicians, top1%, Wall-Street, media and rich-Liberals NEVER care

American-Politicians, top1%, Wall-Street, media and rich-Liberals NEVER care people's minds.

AND.
American-Politicians, top1%, Wall-Street, media and rich-Liberals

Of course, that is NEVER a Democracy.

You must lock "American-Politicians, top1%, Wall-Street, media and rich-Liberals" in mental-hospital now.

Your military-operations will fail,
because "American-Politicians, top1%, Wall-Street, media and rich-Liberals" are stupid.

How do you think Iraq-people feel about this???

And, you say "We are spreding Democracy"???

I think that
"American-Politicians, top1%, Wall-Street, media and rich-Liberals"
are disgracing Dmemocracy.

"American-Politicians, top1%, Wall-Street, media and rich-Liberals"
must NEVER mention about "Democracy".

In fact, Wall-Street is violating Democracy.

I am deeply sorry that I am talking too much.
But I am NEVER a communist, though I am denying Wall-Street.

Please consider the following-situation.
If Wall-Street controles and monopolizes all companies in the U.S.,
and if American-Politicains get AMAKUDARI in Wall-Street,
then this is a de-facto Soveit-Union.

In fact,
decentralization of government to local jurisdictions (or decentralization of power, or decentralization of power from central government to local governments)
is principal principle of Democracy.

I know this saounds crazy.
But.
So, Wall-Street is more like Soviet-Union than capitalist.

[2-2]
"American-Politicians, top1%, Wall-Street, media and rich-Liberals"
are turning our America into Soviet-Union.

I DO love the U.S.
I DO love American-99%!
I am one of American-99%!
Remember Pearl Harbor!

American-99% must anger now!
American-99% must rise now!

Actually the House has passed dozens of bills since the GOP gained control. The problem is in the Democrat held Senate where Harry Reid has single-handedly killed every one of those bills by refusing to bring them up for discussion and a vote in the Senate. Never before in the history of our nation have we seen such obstruction, and all of it by one man. Truly amazing.

That bullshit may play well for the idiot liberals who don't know any better, but anyone who has an IQ above 25 knows the Tea Party's main issue is reducing runaway government spending. They've passed a number of bills in the House to cut spending and balance the budget, but Senate Democrats will have none of it.

Blaming government spending on the Tea Party is the height of stupidity.
Decentralizing government power by dismantling legislative authority would open the door even wider for states so inclined to discriminate unfairly against women and minorities.
Hmm...even more liberal idiocy. Anyone who has been through a 7th grade civics class knows that our federal government was designed to be quite limited, with the people and the states maintaining the lion's share of power.

For you idiots that don't realize that, remember that the 10th Amendment is still in full force and effect today:

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

Standing up for state's rights isn't just a Tea Party thing, it's an American thing, one of the founding principles of our nation.

RARE vacation break?

This islamofascist reprobate takes a vacation when the sh*t his the fan every time.

Barack "just-call-me-Hussein " Obama needs to be tried in an unbiased international court of law on numerous charges,
including but not limited to:
crimes against humanity
malfeasance in office
corruption
bribery
racism
aiding and abetting the enemy
genocide (helping his muslims friends slaughter thousands of Christians in Nigeria, Egypt, and elsewhere).

Well, nali, you've completely failed to understand my post, apparently only to us it as an opportunity to insult liberals by calling them "idiots." Congratulations on making it  (resumable) through your "7th grade civics class," but there's a lot to be said for higher education. You fail to understand that the US Constitution guarantees equal civil rights for all citizens and that states don't have the authority to override it.

To clarify my post for you, you will note that I indicted tea partiers for wasting taxpayers' dollars. For example, they repeatedly voted to repeal Obamacare (50+ times in fact), knowing their efforts were in vain, motivated solely by their effort to defy the President and make him look like a failure. We pay them quite handsomely to pass legislation that will help people, not beat up on the President. Yet they are a do-nothing House, an embarrassment to the extent that they appear incompetent. They talk about austerity most self-righteously, but squander our tax dollars with their folly while doing not acting on basic matters that require attention.

Insulting authority is easy, as demonstrated by negativistic 2-year olds stomping their feet and saying "no" at every opportunity, but being an responsible authority requires intelligence and a level of wisdom that only maturity can bring.

Calling liberals idiots may bring you pleasure for your own reasons, whatever they may be, but it's only noise in the system since you present no low IQ scores to document your claims. Besides, would you really care to pit the IQs of tea partiers like Sarah Palin and Rick Perry with leaders like President Obama and Secretary Clinton? I think not.

The second Presidential news conference today again makes the unbalanced mistake of calling the acted out angers in Ferguson "rightful", thus Obama is validating in peculiar terms the overreactions there, which are now repeatedly shown as unjustified. Although National Guard troops have had to be called to restore civilization to a looted and burned community, Obama also continues to make allegations of police overreacting, or being too tough. Mr. President... if the police had been too tough, it wouldn't be necessary to call the National Guard into action. Obama knows he's being dishonest with these appraisals, as he knows the police backed off and let the nature of the Negro interlopers from out of State extend their violence. Further, Obama makes no reference again to the outrageous excess of Black on White and Black on Black violence in America, which daily exceeds in every way any occasional deadly shooting by a police officer.

So that accounts for 50 of the bills overflowing from Harry Reid's desk drawers. What about the other 250+ that are also stuck in those same drawers? How about Harry Reid let the people's elected Senators vote on the legislation duly passed in the House? Don't the citizens deserve to have laws debated and their senators record votes on those laws?

It surely would have been interesting to see what those repeal votes would have looked like in the Senate. They weren't brought to the floor because Reid thought they just may pass. How pathetic are democrats?(rhetorical)
