What a disgrace.

The Politico reported:

President Barack Obama took a break from wrangling with House Republicans on Wednesday afternoon for a quick pre-Christmas shopping trip to buy gifts for his daughters and Bo the dog.

After calling congressional leaders to reaffirm his support for the Senate-passed two-month extension of the payroll tax cut and unemployment insurance, Obama exited the Oval Office with Bo in tow and headed to a shopping strip in Alexandria, Va. — a man alone with his dog as his family vacations in Hawaii.

    All Ear Leader knows how to do is spend other people’s money and campaign. Actually expecting him to LEAD is way above his pay-grade and capability, you know.

  • Rachelle

    Another 4 years of his presidency and he will be lucky to find a store that isn’t closed and boarded-up.

  • Patty

    Yes he is. There is one commercial after another on the Let Move, ooopss Just Dance 3. Over and over. This is used to promote America to get up an move.

    And the Company sponsors are in the Bag for the Obama’s. Not suplimianal messaging but close to it.

    It’s Congress’s job to make laws. Until there is something to sign or veto, it does not concern the President.

    Yet, he comes out and says Republicans fault. Over and over. The democrats are bashing them and these are the leaders who continue this partisanship while the middle class waits and wonders if the will get a $1,000 tax break. Yes, Congress makes the laws, Obama goes over Congress’s head in Libya and that too is wrong. Obama wants it is way or he will continue to blame Congress. His inference and disdain for Congress is palpable.

    This should make a great stocking stuffer.
    But before applying it to the bumper get ready to get a new paint job on your vehicle. His supporters get mighty careless with their shopping carts WHEN THEY SEE THIS ONE.He still has his knee cappers on retainer too, so don’t go out with out your piece.

    Saying it all with a single bumper sticker

    You might want to read up on the duties and responsibilities (and prerogatives) of the Chief Executive as outlined in the US Constitution again (or for the first time). Signing/vetoing bills ain’t all there is.

    This is really over the top. You are saying he shouldn’t shop for Christmas presents? Certainly he could give a list to one of his staff and consult by phone. but maybe he would like to give gifts that he selected personally? Lighten up.

  • dunce

    First booby frank, now he is hanging around with another guy with man boobs.

    Just how exactly is it over the top to comment about a man who constantly lectures others regarding their duties to shirk his repeatedly?

    Please enlighten us subterranean trolls how we could be ever so clueless to expect some sign of maturity and leadership from the Chief Executive of the Republic.

  • Aaron

    Just be glad the MFM is not reporting Bo is in either the Republic of the Philippines or China. He’d either be in a stew pot or on a barbecue stick if he were.
