At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Dr. James McHenry, a Maryland delegate, followed Benjamin Franklin from Independence Hall. He recorded a question asked by a lady, directed at Dr. Franklin.

The lady asked, "Well Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?"

"A republic," replied Dr. Franklin, "if you can keep it."

A Very Obama Christmas

After December 17, it's likely that the Leader of the Free World, and Santa Claus to many Americans on the dole, will not be thinking about the 'fiscal cliff' as he vacations in Hawaii.

According to notices distributed to residents of an exclusive waterfront neighborhood in Hawaii, they can expect to enjoy restricted access and other inconveniences to their homes and normal lives from December 17 through January 6 while the First Family is on vacation. That's about a 50% longer holiday vacation than last year, but winning an election has its perks.

The vacationing Obamas and a large number of their accompanying friends are moving into a neighborhood and renting a number of mansions. Obama's staff will have to put up with rooms in a nearby luxury hotel.

The Coast Guard will patrol surrounding canals. The Secret Service will stand their posts when they're not chasing skirt in Honolulu - off duty.

Will the big party go on past December 21, when the Mayan Calendar predicts that the world will end? I don't know. It's one of those wait-and-see things.

Merry Christmas Obama just be yourself.... Go back to church --and don't disguise your commie views.

I hope Obama's paying for this excess from his salary. But I doubt he is.

Opus #6 - remember that he gets to keep all of the campaign money that he doesn't spend on the campaign. And he's still asking for donations and 'campaigning'. Having said that, I'm sure that the taxpayers are helping him out on this vacation.

If the world ends, obama's last act will be to stick more of someone else's money in his pocket.

LL said...

WoFat - Sad but true. It would seem that though he is not from New Orleans, he behaves just like a New Orleans politician/thief.
