The President’s Time Management

Posted by madjillmom on September 24, 2009

Glenn Beck’s TV Show today had a great piece about all the things Pres. Obama has had time to do since his hand-picked General McChrystal sent his report on Afghanistan in at the end of August.  Here is a brief rundown of his busy schedule:

1. Vacation – with golf

2.  More golf on the weekends

3.  Basketball games

4.  Letterman for an hour

5. Capitulating to Putin/Russia while simultaneously stabbing Poland in the back

6.  Getting great deals for your corporate economic buddies with Mother Russia after capitulating to Russia

7.  Restaging reason for Healthcare reform repeatedly

8.  Doing 5 news shows in one day

9.  Joint Congressional Speech

10.  King of the World for one day – preside over the UN – impress all the tinpot dictators

11.  A lovely speech to America’s school children

12.  Daily workout estimated to be 45 minutes to an hour (sometimes talked of as an hour and a half)

13.  Ignored the Tea Party held in DC by flying to another state and campaigning for something again

14.  Threw Van Jones under the bus

Gosh darn, that man is busy.  No wonder he hasn’t had time to make a decision about the 66 page report.  He has barely even heard of Afghanistan, and he needs a new mission statement in order to go forward, and the left wing of his party isn’t happy about his previous statements on the new and improved good war.  Oh, wait, he has barely heard of ACORN, not Afghanistan. That’s OK.  No problem.  Take your time.  It is only a few of our guys dying  and being maimed.  Remember, he has his hands full taking over healthcare.  Everyone will die if he doesn’t take over healthcare soon.

Middle Class Chumps are We

Posted by madjillmom on March 3, 2009

This post by John Derbyshire at The Corner may haunt me for awhile.  We are doing what our advisor says to do.  Giving up today for a better future tomorrow.  I usually do the right thing.  A year ago, I could see my reward building, a future out there that was reasonable.  Now we are back a dozen years in effort, with a harder slog ahead.  All this while I pay for others to do the wrong thing.  Meanwhile, Pres. Obama preaches to me about personal responsibility.

Why Can’t Pres. Obama say the Surge worked?

Posted by madjillmom on February 28, 2009

Yesterday, Pres. Obama told the troops at Camp Lejuene about his plans for the ongoing wars. Going to pull out of Iraq by August 2011. For almost a year there will be 50,000 noncombatant soldiers to help with things before the August 2011 pull out. Last week announced 17,000 additional troops in Afghanistan. One report said he met 24 times with his military advisors. I am not sure I believe that. He split the difference. He wanted 16 months, General’s wanted 23, 19 it is. That will show them who is boss.

Never once did he say the Surge worked. Nor did he use the work Victory. One of the Dems complaints about Pres. Bush was that he would never say he was wrong. Apparently, Obama has this same foible. Also, the agreement between the Iraqi government and the United States was taken down off the Whitehouse website.

I keep wondering if, after talking with George Clooney on Monday, he will deliver a Friday speech and let us know how many troops will be dispatched to Africa for some special humanitarian mission.

Fashion in the House Last Night

Posted by madjillmom on February 25, 2009

As a woman with no particular sense of style, who mostly shops at Walmart, I reserve my right to say something catty about some important women at Pres. Obama’s address to the nation last night.

First Lady Michelle Obama – Sleeveless seems inappropriate for an evening in the house chamber in February. The color was ok and she has nice arms. Still, I think a nice dress with jacket or skirt and jacket would have been more appropriate.

Speaker Pelosi: Puke green is not a good color. Plus, everytime she stood to clap, I realized that she has a little belly on her. That made me feel good. I thought she was thinner. Usually she dresses very sharp, but last night was not inspired.

Pres. Obama’s Address to the Nation lacking in Details

Posted by madjillmom on February 25, 2009

Where are the details?
Omnibus Pork you will cut?
Educational programs that don’t work you will cut?
Military procurement on last century’s weapons you will cut?
Healthcare programs you will start?
Social Security Reforms?

It seems to me he is saying that he has his people working on this stuff and he will get back to us on the details. Goody.
