Hey, he's a scumbag.

Ho Ho Ho chi minh

This is hardly a commentary on the most important things going on currently, but it should be revealing, even for those who have somehow not yet grasped the true nature of Barack Obama, his regime and his agenda.


P.S. Camp David (with its rustic lodges, in the woods of Maryland's Catoctin Mountain Park), has always struck me as an ideal place to go at Christmastime. But what do I know?; I love the woods in winter. I'm not obsessed with golf, and I've never been to Hawaii, let alone claiming to have been born there.

From today's American Thinker:

A Tale of Two Presidential Vacations
By Brian C Joondeph

“Our character is what we do when we think no one is looking” is an aphorism from author H. Jackson Brown, Jr.  Much of the life of an American president is public, yet much is not.  The true character of the president may be revealed during moments away from the television cameras and news reporters.

President George W. Bush and his wife Laura “[n]ever left Washington, D.C., until the day after Christmas,” writes former White House reporter Joseph Curl.  The reason was simple.  A low-level White House staffer explained, “So all of us can be with our families on Christmas.”  The “us” meant hundreds of staffers, police, Secret Service agents, and reporters who move with the president.

President Obama and his family, in contrast, begin their Christmas vacation well before Christmas.  His large entourage follows, most of them leaving their families behind to celebrate Christmas without them.  Sure, Waikiki Beach is nice, but who wouldn’t rather be home with their families, at least for Christmas Day?

A pair of Army captains scheduled to be married on the Marine Corps base golf course had to move their wedding at the last minute.  The ceremony was planned for the 16th hole, a spot known for its beautiful views.  But the golfer-in-chief had to play through, forcing them to move their wedding, scheduled for the next day.  At least the president called the couple to congratulate them and apologize, but weren’t there other options?  How about a golf lesson and some time on the range?  Another golf course?  A good book on the beach?  Hanging out with his family?

These are the small things that demonstrate character.  Or lack thereof.  Thinking of others versus thinking of oneself.  Minor gestures offered away from the glare of the cameras and microphones.  How especially relevant at Christmas, when God came to the world as a humble servant, not as an all-powerful majestic being.  Our all-powerful leaders should heed this example.

They same way liberals cant fathom the idea that problems cant be solved just through the force of their will, megalomaniacs cant fathom that they could possibly inconvenience anyone.

Even Presidents can be assholes, with an asshole entourage. Making people realize that fact is a daunting task.

Obama was merely asserting white privilege.

It was a beautiful day to play golf today. I was the only person on the course. Of course, it was only 29F outside but that's a minor detail.

Why are the seats on the wrong side of the tanks?

Look again, Skoonj!

Happy New Year!

So that's where all the 5 gallon toilets went to! The ones that flush properly!

I wonder if the park is guarded at night? If you could post the address, me and my wrenches could go check. Just for security's sake, ya know.
