Special Notice: Obama To Vacation On Martha's Vineyard Following A Job Well Done

Tyler Durden's picture


We bring you this special announcement courtesy of the White House which has informed that American plebs that following a fantastic job well done, in which the market is now back to pre-QE2 levels, unemployment is near record highs, delays for presidential press meetings compare with Newark airplane take offs, pessimism is at record highs, America's credit rating has just been downgraded, the country was nearly bankrupted, and sales of end of the world provisions are through the roof (not to mention ammunition), president Obama is taking a well-deserved vacation at Martha's Vineyard at the end of the month. From Bloomberg: "President Barack Obama will vacation with his family in Martha's Vineyard at the end of this month as he's done in years past, the White House said Wednesday, despite the weak economy and negotiations on the nation's debt problem. Press secretary Jay Carney defended Obama's plans to take a break even as he's pledged urgent action on those issues. "I don't think Americans out there would begrudge that notion that the president would spend some time with his family," Carney said." Spot on, Jay, spot on.

"Carney added that there's really no such thing as a presidential vacation since Obama will travel with his aides, receive regular briefings on national security and the economy and be able to return to Washington if necessary. "The presidency travels with you. He will be in constant communication," Carney said at the White House briefing. Last August, the president, Michelle Obama and their two daughters spent 10 days at a rented farm on the wealthy island retreat in Massachusetts.

Our advice: buy ELY stock: with the market about to implode, the president is sure to make at least one company's year.

That's what I've been saying for years. Let the Congress do 1 thing  and only 1 thing every year when they convene...... and that's vote to adjourn. Period.

Think about it. Had they done absolutely nothing for the past 20 years except to ratify the budget of the previous year (that means no changes to anything at all since 1991, no new taxes, no new regulations, no war, no nothing) how much better off would we be?

James K. Polk was the one that made war on a nearly defenseless Mexico so he could take half of it away from the Mexicans.  When Saddam tried to do that in Kuwait, he got squashed.

Texans were illegal immigrants into Mexico.  Slavery was illegal in Mexico.  Texas wasn't the reason (or even a valid reason) why Polk went to war against Mexico.  It was Manifest Destiny.  Whatever the fuck that means.  Polk wanted more territory.  Like the Germans' "lebensraum",  more empire, more money, even if it's necessary to get it by armed robbery.

"Texans were illegal immigrants into Mexico.  Slavery was illegal in Mexico."

And the Mexicans inherited all of it from the kings of Spain. Who, in turn, conquered/pacified all of it from native Indians. And Spain was heavilly involved in slave trading before declining as an empire and ceding their slave trade to Britain.

Do you have an actual point of empire power vacuums being filled?...or just on a general Polk bashing rant?...human history is not a static thing, its fluid.

Texas gave up the right to say "Don't mess with Texas" when your state capitulated to TSA.

Texas, as a major hub of air traffic, was handed the torch to shut that tyranny down and Texas folded like a cheap lawnchair.

Bullshit. Early Texans were not illegal immigrants. Some were horse thieves & wanted men, no doubt, but not illegal immigrants.

Mexico had an open-door immigration policy for many years in an attempt to settle its northern frontier in competition with the USA's westward expansion. You could call it Free Land. "If you can tame it, it's yours," is the Anglo expression of Mexico's land & immigration policy. The doors were open. Whole German & Polish towns left germany's warring principalities and decamped along Texas rivers. They brought their way of life & also gave us Texas BBq. Many Scots-Irish farmers & their families also decamped & settled into life in Texas. They grew food & made the Land productive. All of these activites were sanctioned & approved by the Mexican government.

The Revolution is Another Story Entirely, but Early Texans were not illegals. I can tell you like history & my grandmother was a Daughter of the Republic, so I'm just setting you straight on her behalf. No offense. Now, I dont know nuthin bout no James k polk.

It wasn't an open-door immigration policy for slave-owners or non-Catholics.  Catholic Poles and Irish yes.

Well, that's a good point. Mexico didn't specificly proscribe Protestants from entering & settling Texas, so lots of 'em came in, mostly from the USA. My Great-grandafther was Protestant & a horse thief. He still immigrated somehow & became a farmer in Nacodoches County.

So the Protestants' entering & settling in Texas was not prohibited under Mexican Law.. They entered, having significantly different religious & political ideas than Mexico City.

Then, possibly before or after assuming dictatorial powers, Santa Anna decreed that all Texas marriages take place in a Catholic church. Predictably, a large segment of the population had a disagreement with that.

Here's to history!

I suspect the prez may become bored with that future position they are holding for him, you know, the partnership at Goldman Sachs International once he's finished at the Oval Office.

In the spirit of the recently deceased Mulla Hulla Bulla (supposed to be in charge of that team that destroyed the Chinook heli recently w/30 KIAs), I believe, just in case he becomes bored at GS Int'l, he might change his name to Rama Llama Obama, the perfect name for an entertainment career.

On a more serious note, this Budget Control Act of 2011 with its Super Committee of 12, is truly the final "Game Over" -- w/Baucus ("I'm proud to have voted for the tax cuts for the super-rich"), and Patty "ultimate airehead" Murray (voted down public option, voted for every war financing bill) and John "multi-billionaire" Forbes Kerry, the American worker is truly screwed for the foreseeable future.

Obama of Wall Street has truly trashed the nation's workers --- while in Europe -- from various interviews I hear on the international news -- they citizenry truly appears to understand what is taking place, while in America the typical Ameritard is clueless that the banksters have peddled over $900 trillion in credit derivatives which they claimed had value on Monday, but became worthless by Friday, and they want to stick the lower income, working poor and poor with their bill (austerity programs, etc.).

Perhaps you will explain to the rest of us what Obama has done, other than:

Preemptive arrests of activists (just like Bushie),

going after more whistleblowers than all previous US presidents combined, (including using the Espionage Act against them more than anyone else, etc.),

Pursuing a bunch of "free trade" agreements, just like those neocons before him, to further expand unemployment in America,

Expanding the "war" in Afghanistan, ensuring protection for Chinese copper mining companies there, as well as those gas and oil pipelines feeding resources into India on behalf of American multinationals there,

Instead of concentrating on jobs for American workers, upon entering the presidency, he instead does that backdoor bailout for health insurance industry to the tune of an estimated $400 billion in guaranteed revenue streams (second-tier bank bailout, as the banksters own those insurance corps.),

appointed the most neocon administration conceivable -- only neocon he has yet to appoint was Dick Cheney,

etc., etc., etc.

I don't think that he's accomplished much.  I think he's a middling President.

But the fact that he's taking a vacation, or uses the presidential airplane, aren't substantive criticisms.  It's partisan fluff.  The list of criticisms you just came up with off the top of your head are all more substantive than this post.

Let's talk about real things here instead of a bunch of lowbrow "Obama is a Kenyan" bullcrap that appeals to wingnuts with a room-temperature IQ.

Other than that, he is patheticly awful.

Partisan my ass! 

I couldn't wait to see the back of Bush.  This idiot has made me miss that chimp!  Yeah, that bad.  This jackass is like the worst of Bush on crack.

The problem isn't that hes' taking a vacation.  The problem is that he decides to fuck off to Martha's Vineyard while the country is burning.  Hell, he could barely be dragged from the campaign trail (the only thing hes' good at) to comment on a historical downgrade of the nation's crediworthiness! And then we got his Marxist "from each according to his ability to each according to his need to each according to his need" crap.  The only time he hangs around is to threaten every cowering member in his party to pass a health care destruction act.

He's not a president and has never been.  He's a candidate.  A useless POS.

And while every president uses taxpayer funded  Air Force One, it seems the country expects him to be more judicious in his use at a time when the taxpayers are being bankrupted by their own elected officials. 

Why do you find this so difficult to understand?

No problems with vacations but debt ceiling was a disaster. Downgrade embarrassig. Stock market abysmal. Talk of eating your peas, rolling up sleeves, and being there til job done just doesn't match with taking vacation. Period. Simple. End of story. Vacations for professionals are cancelled at times of need. In 18 months he can vacation forever in his presidential library. And he does seem to use air force 1 and other presidential benefits as free campaign money.

(IF he's re-elected), I will bid a sad farewell to my home, almost anywhere will be better than what he's bringing down on the country, with a second wind.

Rhetorical question, I'm sure.  But your answer is that the MIC is profit driven.

Throw yourself on the ground and feign a difficult challenge for even the smallest enemies--because as long as you are pretending to fight, you can keep at your business.


And I mean this part, I really do:  I don't care about some welfare soldiers who signed up to fight ragheads or anyone else:  if they get killed furthering the MIC's agenda, I will not shed a tear.

Who else bankrolled by Rothschilds? They had largest fortune in world history. It always about the Jewish jealousy. You not smart enough to make money, blame the Jew. They sound very evil. Here from Wikipedia.

Since the end of the 19th century, the family has taken a low-key public profile, donating many of their most famous estates, as well as vast quantities of art, to charity, keeping full anonymity about the size of their fortunes, and generally eschewing conspicuous displays of wealth.[31][32] The family once had one of the largest private art collections in the world, and a significant proportion of the art in the world's public museums are Rothschild donations which were sometimes, in the family tradition of discretion, donated anonymously.[33]
