Obama Blames Washington Gridlock, Partisanship On Family, Daughters

by Tony Lee 2 Sep 2012

President Barack Obama is partly blaming his family and children for his inability to lessen Washington’s partisanship and gridlock during his first term.

On CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday show, Jessica Yellin said she interviewed Obama for a forthcoming documentary and asked him why he did not do more outreach to Republicans in the beginning of his term to bridge the divides Obama often rails against.

Yellin said Obama told her one of the reasons he did not was because he wanted to spend more time at home with his kids and family.

"He was trying to spend some time at home with his family in the evenings and on the weekends,” Yellin said.

Yellin noted Obama suggested things may be different in the second term when his kids are older.

“If this was such a priority, why didn’t he do it?,” Yellin asked. “You can carve out one night a week to go out and socialize and reach across the aisle.”

I find this deplorable. It's everybody else's fault that he can't get anything done. And Now he blames his girls? His family?

...or maybe playing golf?  now, that's more important, than the business at hand, and dealing with the job he was hired for.....

Honestly, he wanted to spend more time with his family??, how many trips did he take in the first two years, how many times was he seen on the golf course, playing basketball, giving speaches all over the country or laying blame for all his failures on anyone except himself, of course he still is, only this time being the stand up type guy he is, he lays blame on the family

Even today as I watch his minions on TV they still lay blame to the Republicans and Bush, and again I say, had Obama done one single thing he said, tried to actually allow the Republicans to be part of the process, the idea's he had, allowing them to be part of the Health Care debate not closing the doors and shutting them out, making massive amounts of bribes and backroom deals, had he spent the first two years working on inproving our nation and making it the best it could be, not an image of socialist based countries, telling the world how sorry we are we saved them from the rule people like Hitler and Mousilini,

Had once he told the American people he needed that stimulus money for "shovel ready" projects, that he was going to launch the massive infra-structer repair ever seen in the US to rebuild our economy, the highways, bridges, over passes, then two years later while giving his "champaing backed unions and his "green energy" companies millions of dollars only to have them go bankrupt less than a month later, making jokes about being wrong about that,

Now over the next 62 days all we are here is how this all falls on the republicans

...well, he is running out of options.....but, getting closer to blaming himself? NOT!!!

If he did not want to do the job - why did he go after it?

do you think it was to destroy America?

do you think it was to make America like Europe?

I believe it was both.

Otherwise, why would he take a back seat to any country of the world?

Tim I think he is there to destroy America and at the same time he and Mooooochelle are lov'in the Lifestyle. But I think his 1st priority is to destroy OUR COUNTRY & his Boss is that other Evil Person Soros

Michelle was going to divorce him before the 2008 campaign because he spent all his time with the community stuff.  Mr Cheney said there was talk about their divorce papers during the campaign of 2008. Obamas are supposed to have purchased an ESTATE in Hawaii and Michelle, the girls, and her mother intend on spending next winter there.  Don't know about THE Obama.  Refuse to call him president.

There is no way she will divorce him while in the WH. She like him LOVES the Lifestyle!!! SHe can vacation at the best of the best vacation spots, she can jet set everywhere she wants, she has her hair stylist, her fashion stylist etc all ON Us THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. No way she will willingly give that up!! Her Mom is even enjoying the lifestyle on the AMERICAN PEOPLE. Pretty funny that they freeload off of us and at the same time put us down.  Those 2 make me sick!

I refer to him as "Resident Obama," given the evidence that he is not even a U.S. citizen (most likely Indonesian after his adoption by Lolo Soetoro as a child when his mother married Soetoro).   I think if everybody refers to him this way, the cumulative effect will draw constant public attention to his carefully-guarded secretive past. 

He criticizes Romney for not being transparent and releasing more than two years of tax returns?  What hipocracy -- Obama's spent millions covering up his own past.  Where there's smoke (and there's a LOT OF IT), there's fire!!!  Don't let him off the elegibility hook.

Obama always accuses others of something that he's guilty of himself.  He accuses Romney of "lack of transparency" as a distraction/diversion to draw attention away from his own lack of transparency.  His offensive (literally) strategy is to put critics/opponents on defense.  It's a Saul Alinsky "Rules for Radicals" concept/tactic.

Will Barrack's boyfriend move to Hawaii too? Michelle just like others such as Eleanor Roosevelt and Hillary Clinton like the trappings of power even to the point of putting up with their husbands adultery even if it is with same sex partners.

but the hacker-in-chief still had time for 100 rounds of golf

OMG this guy gets more and more lame by the day. Are we supposed to believe this??????????????????????????? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

This president is so immature. We have 23 million people out of work and many small businesses suffering because of his policies. Now he tells the American people he wants to be home at 6:30 to help with the homework because this is what stage he is in his life? Excuse me, but if that is the stage you are in your life, you do not belong the leader of this country! There are millions of people working over time to make ends meet, who would love to be home with their kids instead! But this president won't help them, because he's too caught up in his own life! This man is unbelievable!!!

SICK: New Jersey Awarded $3.8 Million In Financial Aid To Illegal Aliens

 A local news report revealed that the state of New Jersey awarded $3.8 million in financial aid to illegal immigrants during the 2018-2019 school year.

According to a report from NJ.com, the state of New Jersey gave $3.8 million in financial aid to 749 illegal immigrant students in the last academic year. More than a quarter of the funding went to 328 illegal immigrants that attend Rutgers University.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed a law last year that allowed illegal immigrants to apply for financial aid. Prior to the signing, illegal immigrants were permitted to apply to pay in-state tuition at public universities but they were not eligible for financial aid.

Murphy, who supports the spending, hit back at Republican critics by arguing that giving financial aid to illegal immigrants is compatible with American values.

“I’d even invite any of those folks who have that attitude, beginning with our president, to come on into this room and allow me or any of us to say, ‘This is the United States of America,’” Murphy said at the time.

David J. Socolow, executive director of the state’s Higher Education Student Assistance Authority, defended the state’s decision to offer financial aid to illegal immigrants.

“This financial assistance offers these New Jersey students a life-changing opportunity,” Socolow said in a brief comment.“The successes of these first 513 students, who are now attending county colleges, state colleges and universities, and independent institutions around the state, will have a positive impact on countless additional lives.”

According to the report, there is currently no limit on the amount of illegal immigrant students that are permitted to receive financial aid from the state of New Jersey. State lawmakers forecast that they will spend approximately $5 million on financial aid for illegal immigrants each year.
