     You just cannot make these things up:

They still haven’t uncovered Barack Obama’s college thesis but are determined to investigate and harass Michele Bachmann’s foster children.

Stephanopoulos: Finally one—one final question. I think one of the most impressive things that people find in your background is the fact that you and your husband have helped raise 23 foster children and I know you want to shield them but are they prepared and are you prepared for the loss of privacy that comes with the president campaign? And is that something you are concerned about for them?

Bachmann: Well when we were making this momentous decision we sat down for a long time as a family and contemplated what this was meaning and yes, we are ready. We have five wonderful biological children. Our last one is off to college our oldest one is a doctor. And then we had great – a great 23 foster children in our home as well. And as you can imagine and appreciate we’ve tried to keep a good handle on their privacy and we will do that, we will respect their privacy. We are thankful that we had them but we also want to observe their privacy and that of their families.

       In his press conference Thursday, President Obama commented that his duaghter Malia has asked if he’s “plugged the hole yet”. The President chose to bring his children into the politics of the BP oil spill and the questioning of his administration’s response, or lack thereof. Always being the patronizing leader telling us to use the teachable moments, he just missed the greatest one.

     Friday, he flew to the Gulf Coast while the First Family organized themselves at the Hyde Park home in Chicago. He toured the beaches, and made himself look somewhat ignorant when he  tried to discuss the tar balls on the beach. While he assumed the tar to be a part of the disaster, a New York Times reporter commented that the beaches have tar regularly… that in fact she gets it in her bathing suit. Of course, Obama, acting Presidential, made a cude remark about her statement. His remark, hadBush made it, would have been media fodder.

     The President gave all of three hours on his second trip in the 40 day crisis. The President could have made this a teachable moment for not just his daughters, but the region and the country, if he had packed up Mother Robinson, Malia and Sasha, Bo, MO, Mo’s brother Craig and his family, and made Louisiana the site of their weekend getaway. His daughters and his nephews could have had a firsthand view of the crisis, and could have earned some community service hours for school. Mrs. Obama and the President could have spent time, outside of photo op view, talking to the locals about what they see the lonfterm impacts are going to be on their lives. The First Family could have helped the tourism of the Gulf Coastal area by showing that Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas are waiting to take care of the tourists.

     Instead, a few hours in the Gulf Coast, and then its back to Chicago for hoops at the University of Chicago, then he donned the jeans and sandals, and headed over to a neighbor’s house for a BBQ. President Obama, the BBQ is great in New Orleans!

     Annie Liebovitz had the opportunity to do the photo shoot of the First Family, and the “Official First Family” photo has been released.  Regardless of your agreement or disagreement with his policies, Liebovitz always brings out great pictures!4035513827_8f85699646  But, hey, were is BO and Grandma Robinson?

     Even as state and local officials grapple with shrinking revenues, the White House is beginning, through the Department of Education, to pursue the concept of shortening the school summer vacations:

WASHINGTON – Students beware: The summer vacation you just enjoyed could be sharply curtailed if President Barack Obama gets his way.

Obama says American kids spend too little time in school, putting them at a disadvantage with other students around the globe.

“Now, I know longer school days and school years are not wildly popular ideas,” the president said earlier this year. “Not with Malia and Sasha, not in my family, and probably not in yours. But the challenges of a new century demand more time in the classroom.”

The president, who has a sixth-grader and a third-grader, wants schools to add time to classes, to stay open late and to let kids in on weekends so they have a safe place to go.

“Our school calendar is based upon the agrarian economy and not too many of our kids are working the fields today,” Education Secretary Arne Duncan said in a recent interview with The Associated Press.

If this is true, the POTUS will have PETA pounding him NON-STOP.

 

Witchcraft in the White House

The Obama White House is abuzz with talk of witchcraft by first grandmother, 72-year-old Marian Robinson, who lives in the White House residence. A close friend of Michelle Obama says the president is furious at his mother-in-law after learning that she was practicing Santeria, an African spirit cult, in the White House.

“The president is quite upset about this on two different levels. First, he is a committed Christian, no matter what his critics say about Reverend Wright. He is adamant that Sasha and Malia be raised with Christian influences. He does not want them to be involved with African voodoo. And secondly, he is worried about the political fallout if his enemies get wind of this. Rev. Wright was bad enough, but this would be political suicide,” a close friend of Michelle’s confided.

Religion took center stage during the campaign last year when videos showed the Rev. Jeremiah Wright shouting “God damn America.” Obama was forced to distance himself from the since-retired pastor at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, where he worshiped for 20 years. Many people were shocked by the videos and questioned Obama’s fitness to be president. Since taking office, Obama has avoided worshiping in public and now prefers the chapel at the presidential retreat at Camp David.

This is how it happened. Marian Robinson became increasingly frustrated as her husband, Fraser Robinson, was hobbled by multiple sclerosis in the late 1980s. The family pastor prayed with her and counseled her, but “she turned to Santeria in a desperate hope,” Michelle’s friend said. “Michelle put her foot down when she heard that her mother took her dad to ceremonies where they did spells and trances, and sacrificed animals, chickens and goats I think. But Marian was desperate and kept going anyway, even when her husband was to sick to go with her. I don’t think the president knew anything about this earlier because it was before they met. Michelle and Craig (her brother) wanted to close the book on this and never talked about it again after their father died in 1991.”

The first grandma appears to be worried about her health now, even though doctors pronounce her in good shape. “Marian invited an old friend from Chicago to visit her at the White House, and she performed a Santeria ceremony in the residence. When Michelle saw this woman, a voodoo priestess she recognized her from when her father was sick, she had a fit. When she told the president about it, he blew up and said, ‘No voodoo in the White House. Absolutely. I don’t care what you call it.’ As far as I know, it only happened once,” the friend said.

The president was “totally in favor” when his mother-in-law moved into the White House as a live-in babysitter for 11-year-old Malia and 8-year-old Sasha. Obama reportedly told Michelle that her mother will have to go back to Chicago if she does not “stop this witchcraft mumbo-jumbo immediately” and ordered the Secret Service to not allow Marian’s friend to return to the White House.

     Like many families do, Obama has blended some worktime- townhall meetings in Montana and Colorado- with some family time. And who can blame him, since he has had so mant television appearances.

    But while many Americans are curtailing their travels, or taking no vacations at all, the appearnce of the EXTENDED families might draw some ire! After all, who is paying for the Ng’s to travel from Hawaii to Montana, or the Robinson’s from Oregon. From the photo’s, it appears that Craig Robinson’s father-in-law may even be a part of the mix (note the senior citizen caucasian male in the party).

    Yes, even if they travel on Air Force One, they are supposed to reimburse us for customary commercial fare. Will we ever know? My guess is that Montana was the gathering point for the extended families to meet up with Obama to hitch a ride back east for the Martha’s Vineyard vacation.

One question– Where is Grandma Robinson??

After all the Obama administration’s harping on ending obesity and healthier eating, I can understand why they might not want anybody taking pictures of them scarfing on junk:

Michelle Obama, like her husband, enjoys a good burger, but not as well done. The first lady brought daughters Malia and Sasha to former “Top Chef” contestant Spike Mendelsohn’s Good Stuff Eatery in DC for cheeseburgers, onion rings, fries, and milkshakes. “They got the burgers medium,” says a spy. (President Obama was mildly ridiculed after ordering a burger medium-well in January.) “Three starving Secret Service guys were literally standing over the grill as Spike made the burgers, but didn’t eat,” our source adds. Fellow patrons had their cellphones temporarily confiscated to prevent pictures from being taken.

     A trip through Russia, Paris, and Italy did not count as “summer vacation” for Sasha and Malia, and while many Americans have trimmed travel plans or cancelled them altogether,  the Obama “summer” plan has been released:

It’s hard to pick the perfect escape when you’re the leader of the free world. But word has it that the Obamas have found the hideaway they need: A 28-acre, $20-million property on Martha’s Vineyard Island, off the coast of Massachusetts, called Blue Heron Farm. The 10,000-square-foot retreat has everything a president wanting some downtime needs, including a swimming pool, basketball court, and golf tee. And it is even dog-friendly.

The Obama family will pay its own way for a one-week getaway at the end of August, and it’s not cheap: Rents reportedly run from $35-$50,000 a week for similar homes. (Not surprisingly, the town of Chilmark, where they’re headed, was voted the most expensive small town in America a couple years back. And that was before the First Family said they’d be coming.)

While it may seem elitist in mid-recession to turn up at an exclusive resort, consider this: The Secret Service rejected some 20 other vacation spots before Blue Heron Farm got the seal of approval.

As the AP notes, the Obamas’ visit is not as bad as you think—it actually adds to the rich history of the place: In the old days, black families vacationed on the island because they were unwelcome elsewhere. Now prominent African Americans who choose to spend their summers there include director Spike Lee, Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. (yes, that Henry Louis Gates), and Obama’s Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett.

The cost of taking a week’s vacation when you are the president is undoubtedly high. But the value of family time, we’re sure, is priceless.

Yes, George Bush went on vacation—- to his ranch in Texas!! And, so much for my excursion to Martha’s Vineyard next month!

OBAMA WHITE HOUSE PARTIES ON AS “ROME” BURNS

Hypocrisy In Criticizing Corporate Execs Is Rank

FREEDOM WATCH FILES FOIA ACTIONS TO LEARN HOW MUCH IS BEING SPENT ON “FUN

AND GAMES”

 

(Washington, D.C.) Today, Freedom Watch began an investigation of the Obama

White House’s reported excessive partying at The White House, with the likes of Stevie

Wonder and other high priced entertainment stars. In what in recent weeks has

become more like a “high priced night club,” Barack and Michelle Obama have been

throwing taxpayer funded parties nearly every night with their “friends” and supporters,

with Michelle Obama even exhorting them not to “break” White House property.

TODAY, FREEDOM WATCH FILED DOCUMENT REQUESTS WITH THE GENERAL SERVICES

ADMINISTRATION TO DETERMINE HOW MUCH TAXPAYER MONEY IS BEING USED FOR

THESE “SOIREES,” AS FINANCIAL MARKETS COLLAPSE, HOMES ARE FORECLOSED AND AS

“ROME BURNS.”

Larry Klayman, founder, Chairman and General Counsel of Freedom Watch

issued the following statement:

 

“This party atmosphere sends the wrong message to the

American people. As the Obama-Clinton crowd party

on, the American people are suffering greatly. It was right to

criticize corporate execs for using taxpayer bailout money

on bonuses and corporate junkets. In the face of this

criticism, it is an outrage for Barack and Michelle Obama to

party on, as Rome burns. It’s like throwing a party at a

funeral.”

Playground set installed on White House lawn

This was deemed news by the Associated Press today, so hey, what the hell, I’ll bite as well !
The playset for Mailia and Sasha was waiting for them when they arrived home from Sidwell Friends School (where some of their classmates may have their “vouchers” ripped away from them by Daddy and Sen Durbin). Keeping in line with his “green” initiative, the South Dakota manufaturer, Rainbow Play Systems, says that the set is made from American Redwood and Cedar lumber.
The AP says that the Obama’s paid for the playset personally.
