Obama's European Vacation Part 2
More than 500 officials and staff will accompany the president on his tour this week[.]
In addition, a team from the White House kitchen will travel with the president to prepare his food.
Obama’s entourage may be impressive, but it may all be in vain nonethless [sic]. German Chancellor Angela Merkel already said she refuses to “spend more” to combat the economic crisis.
It will nonetheless be interesting to see how Obama handles his first major international meeting after assuming office. [ Maybe some new jokes predicated on those who belong to the Special Olympics? - Drake ]
In other Barry Is a Pansy news, he has replaced the term Global War On Terror (GWOT) with Overseas Contingency Operation. The Telegraph:
The move comes as no surprise as both Barack Obama and Joe Biden have studiously avoided using the term in order to avoid offending Muslim countries.
The word Terrorism is now known as Man-Caused Disaster. FOX News:
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has an explanation about why she never mentioned the word "terrorism" during her first testimony on Capitol Hill.
Napolitano tells the German news site Spiegel Online that while she presumes there is always a threat from terrorism: "I referred to "man-caused" disasters.
Where is the outrage over Obama securing a $500K book advance days before being sworn in as president, thereby allowing him to circumvent disclosure laws? Washington Times:
President Obama arranged in the days just before he took office to secure a $500,000 advance for a children's book project, a disclosure report shows.
Analysts say there don't appear to be any rules that would bar such transactions after a president takes office, but it's unclear whether an incoming or sitting president has ever signed a book deal upon entering the White House.
"I don't recall any sitting president entering into a book deal," said campaign finance lawyer Jan Baran, former general counsel to the Republican National Committee.
Classless Barry. Classless.
Good work as always DD. Keep showing the Cultists no quarter. No one does it better than you.
I guess the Euros don't want any part of Barry's snake oil.
No they don't. They recognize Barry for the fraud that he is.
If you want to find out what Europe really thinks of Fraudy you have to read the UK press and other foreign news sources. They aren't painting Fraudy as a messiah. Not by a long shot.
And The Left hates the Saudis! The Left spent 8 yrs tying Bush to the hip of the Saudis! And Pbama BOWS TO THE SAUDI KING!
Hi Mats. Welcome new visitor!
It's crazy isn't it? The only choice we seem to have from the radical wing of Islamists is submit or die. I don't like either option, so they can go f--k themselves and their camels.
What do we do? Well, we shouldn't appease or pacify, but that's just what Barry is doing.
Welcome. Praise from a Liberal? Wow, that's the highest order. Thanks! You must feel jilted as a Hillary supporter. I don't blame ya one bit.
