But the drops go to the links…
President Barack Obama traveled to California Friday to highlight the state’s drought emergency at two events near Fresno, calling for shared sacrifice to help manage the state’s worst water-shortage in decades. He then spent the rest of the weekend enjoying the hospitality of some of the state’s top water hogs: desert golf courses…
The 124 golf courses in the Coachella Valley consume roughly 17 percent of all water there, and one quarter of the water pumped out of the region’s at-risk groundwater aquifer. Each of the 124 Coachella Valley courses, on average, uses nearly 1 million gallons a day due to the hot and dry climate, 3-4 times more water per day than the average American golf course.
Don’t worry, though; the “president” is concerned, and is calling for shared sacrifice… by others.
“It can’t just be a matter of there’s going to be less and less water so I’m going to grab more and more of a shrinking share of water,” Obama said Friday. “Instead what we have to do is all come together and figure out how we all are going to make sure that agricultural needs, urban needs, industrial needs, environmental and conservation concerns are all addressed.”
Yoko Ono is nowhere near this tone deaf. Calling Obama a hypocrite is an insult to hypocrites.
The best thing about Barack Obama’s second term? He’s not even pretending anymore. Worse still, he’s flaunting his insolence in front of world leaders now.
Via the pool report: At 4:45 POTUS and President Hollande walked out from a portico and strolled in Front of your pool with Leslie Bowman, president of the Monticello Foundation. Looking at a terrace she said that Jefferson loved to admire the landscape from there. POTUS said that he’d like to take a look and seemed delighted to “break the protocol”.
“That’s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want” he quipped, walking to the terrace with his guest and Ms. Bowman. Pool now in the mansion as the leaders will come and visit Jefferson’s study.
The comment came around the time the White House announced it would be delaying the Obamacare mandate for some businesses unilaterally.
So this jackass crafts Obamacare, gloats when it becomes law, then breaks the law at every turn. Why wouldn’t he brag about doing whatever he wants when there is no one to stop him?

During an interview with the New Yorker, Barack Obama explained his dipping poll numbers in one word: racism.
President Barack Obama said that racial tensions may have softened his popularity among white voters within the last two years, according to a story posted on the New Yorker magazine’s website today.
“There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president,” Obama said in the article by David Remnick, appearing in the magazine’s Jan. 27 edition.
Racism. Not his arrogance or his incompetence. Not Obamacare or his multitude of scandals. Not the murder of Ambassador Stevens or the loss of Iraq. Racism.
Barack Obama is not fit to hold the office.
Emperor Palpatine, er, President Obama has once again shifted his laser-like focus toward his ruinous economy. Focus leads to action, and action leads to
cooperation with the other side the issuance of Executive Orders.
With two weeks left before delivering an economy-focused State of the Union address to Congress, Obama is picking up the pace of his jobs message and demonstrating how he can advance his economic agenda administratively and through his ability to coax action from important interest groups.
“We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help they need. I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone,” Obama said Tuesday as he convened his first Cabinet meeting of the year.
Obama continued: ”And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible, making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating.”
So Barack Obama is going to ignore congress and assume lawmaking powers by fiat. It’s important to understand the “president” is fully prepared to ram his legislation through, and he will make an end run around congress to do it. This is a puzzling move from an alleged constitutional scholar.
P.S. – On a completely unrelated note, Barack Obama knew within minutes Benghazi was a terrorist attack. And yet, he and his minions still lied about it, claiming the massacre was the result of an internet video.
For all the imperfections (read: borderline treasonous inaction) of Hillary Clinton, I never in a million years thought she would be taken down by a fellow member of the Obama administration.
If this is true, Hillary Clinton is more despicable than I ever imagined.
Hillary Rodham Clinton, a likely Democratic Party standard-bearer in the 2016 presidential contest, staked out her military-related positions in the 2008 race based on how they would play politically, according to a former secretary of defense who served in both the Obama and Bush administrations.
Describing a “remarkable” exchange he witnessed, Robert Gates writes in a book due out next week that “Hillary told the president that her opposition to the  surge in Iraq had been political because she was facing him in the Iowa primary.”
Disgusting. Clinton put her own political aspirations ahead of the safety of our troops in Iraq.
As the year draws to a close, many websites are putting forth their End of Year Lists. Forbes is getting into the act, but instead of the year’s highlights they compiled a list of Barack Obama’s Top Ten Constitutional Violations. It’s an enlightening read.
In its first term, the Administration launched a “We Can’t Wait” initiative, with senior aide Dan Pfeiffer explaining that “when Congress won’t act, this president will.” And earlier this year, President Obama said in announcing his new economic plans that “I will not allow gridlock, or inaction, or willful indifference to get in our way.”
The author then lists ten of the most egregious constitutional violations…
6. Political profiling by the IRS. After seeing a rise in the number of applications for tax-exempt status, the IRS in 2010 compiled a “be on the lookout” (“BOLO”) list to identify organizations engaged in political activities. The list included words such as “Tea Party,” “Patriots,” and “Israel”; subjects such as government spending, debt, or taxes; and activities such as criticizing the government, educating about the Constitution, or challenging Obamacare. The targeting continued through May of this year.
1. Delay of Obamacare’s out-of-pocket caps. The Labor Department announced in February that it was delaying for a year the part of the healthcare law that limits how much people have to spend on their own insurance. This may have been sensible—insurers and employers need time to comply with rapidly changing regulations—but changing the law requires actual legislation.
Those are two of the worst violations, in my opinion, but the other ten are ridiculous in their own right. Of course, the fact we have a list of constitutional violations by a sitting president is the greater issue here.
Michael Goodwin of the New York Post takes a deeper look into the “selfie” episode, and destroys two alleged “world leaders” in the process.
[T]he “selfie” episode also symbolizes the greater global calamity of Western decline. With British prime minister David Cameron playing the role of Obama’s giggling wingman, the “look at me” moment confirms we have unserious leaders in a dangerously serious time.
The sign-language interpreter wasn’t the only fake at the Mandela funeral. Obama and Cameron were posing as world leaders. They will never be confused with FDR and Churchill. The fratboys stand in stark contrast to the days when the “special relationship” meant two great leaders uniting two great countries in the fight for freedom. Those leaders understood the consequences if evil prevailed and were committed to victory…
Normally, I would give Cameron more credit, but apparently I don’t pay enough attention to UK politics.
