President Sent Away To Keep Out Of Trouble?

Published by at 9:27 am under All General Discussions

Things that make you go hmmmm:

President Obama was urged by the few White House insiders from whom he still takes advice to leave the country on his ten-day Asian trip, his longest trip abroad since becoming president, in order to not inflict any more damage to the Democratic Party in the wake of one of the worst electoral defeats for the party of an incumbent president in recent history. According to sources close to the White House, who put themselves in great danger by even talking to members of the media, the plans to have Obama leave for a visit to India, Pakistan, Indonesia, South Korea, and Japan are an attempt to get Obama out of the country while top Democrats can sort through the political disaster created for the party by Obama’s increasingly detached-from-reality presidency.

Seems there is a major fight escalating behind the closed doors of the Democrat Party.

Update: Another story that makes you go hmmmmm:

Congressional Democrats consider him [President Obama] distant and blame him for their historic defeat on Tuesday. Democratic state party leaders scoff at what they see as an inattentive and hapless political operation. Democratic lobbyists feel maligned by his holier-than-though take on their profession. His own cabinet – with only a few exceptions – has been marginalized.

    actually, Terrye, a trade deal is the kind of things that underlings and state department staff are supposed to work on – and when the deal is done and all the kinks worked out, THEN the Pres shows up, signs with a flourish, and leaves. But Obama still has no idea what his job is actually supposed to be, so he just blunders around, doing whatever.

    Btw, it was back in the spring of ’09 (back when it sounded ridiculous) when I predicted on this site that Obama is going to spend much of his second term out of the country. I’ll have to look that up.

    I also predicted (and still predict) that he will NOT run for re-election.

    There might be a new scandal breaking this week about George Soros and some puppet master…that is, if the facts hold up.

    What kind of credence “do you” give to a source like Ulsterman?

    Not that I’m ignoring what others have said in response to my initial question. But I don’t always read the threads…so, I don’t know all the boys and girls here.

    But, for me, you have cred. If you think Ulsterman has credibility, too, then I’m only going to have to do more research on U-man. If you don’t think he has cred, for now I’m not going to do so.

    That make sense?

    OregonGuy, wws gave credence to Ulsterman. That said, I trust wws. So guess you should research him.

    BTW, be ready to research on the about to be announced scandal or something that no one would believe it until they see it.

    This is enough to make a grown man cry. The federal government is giving California $20 million per day to cover unemployment payments.

    In the meantine:

    BEIJING -(Dow Jones)- General Electric Co. (GE: 16.68 ,0.00 ,0.00%) said Tuesday it plans to invest more than $2 billion through 2012 to boost research and development in China and fund new local joint ventures
    in areas such as technology and financial services.

    In a statement, the U.S. conglomerate’s chairman and chief executive, Jeff Immelt, said the company will spend $500 million on improving its research and development operations and set up new customer innovation facilities in China. The investment will add 1,000 new jobs in the next two years, GE said.

    California has priced itself out of the market and the US has priced itself out of the R&D market. 1000 jobs in China that could have been jobs in the US. All because we have created a hostile business environment.

    The thing is, physics works the same in China as it does here. An engineer in China can design a turbine just as easily as an engineer in the US can.

    This is just heartbreaking.

    It makes total sense. He seems legit – but I have no way of telling. Do like me – proceed with caution.

  7. lurker9876 says:

    crosspatch, I thought Drudgereport said that CA is getting 40 million per day but the number is irrelevant when the amount is large enough.

    We have created a consumer economy; rather than a productive economy. We are going to need more garage-type creativity like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and the rest of their gang that created the MS DOS.

    Guess ulster man is right:

    Ulster man has a facebook, btw.

    The ‘unemployed’ in America can have the solace that Barack Obama is busy visiting their former jobs.
