Obama

Transportation for Obama to Los Angeles, California on October 9, 2014, for the Paltrow fundraiser cost taxpayers $1,011,051.30 The article

Guess who said "I’m Jewish in my soul"

A single Obama trip to play pool, drink beer, raise money cost taxpayers about $700,000 The article.

Obama Praises Muslim Cleric Who Backed Fatwa on Killing of U.S. Soldiers  The article.

Not sure about you, but I feel really stupid and undereducated after hearing Michelle Obama's statement 
"I thought to myself, a Princeton and Harvard educated professional woman doesn’t know how to adequately feed her kids..."

Just a couple Obama 180's - the article.  Transparent?  Change?  See this!

Obama don't like the law - he just ignores it Sworn to uphold the laws of this country, our president is telling agencies to ignore our Constitution and our laws...

2008: “There are some programs that have been duplicated by other programs that we need to just cut back, like waste in the Economic Development Agency and the Export-Import Bank that’s become little more than a fund for corporate welfare.”  But yet in August '14 he reauthorized the Export-Import Bank

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.  It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills.  It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies.  Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally.  Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here.'  Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.   America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

Senator Barack H. Obama (on the Senate floor), March 20, 2006

We have a challenge for anyone (like our current president) that say they do not mind paying more taxes.  Next year, instead of filing the 1040 - long form (like our current president does see his Tax return here), file the short form! It’s a guaranteed way for most to pay more taxes and just think how good you’ll feel…

Emperor Obama

Snippets from http://www.breitbart.com/big-government

The President announced he would do what he once said only an “emperor” could do – grant unilateral amnesty, work permits, and access to government benefits to more than five million illegal immigrants.

The timeline begins in January 2009 with the administration ending worksite enforcement actions and, 50 pages later, ends on February 13, 2015 with the House Judiciary Committee’s revelation that the administration included a “sneaky” avenue for illegal immigrants granted deferred status to be placed on a pathway to citizenship.

Each of the dates below have the full (some absolutely sickening) story in the complete article found here.

Executive orders

According to Federal Registry.gov, Obama has published the following executive orders, 8 significant EOs while congress was in recess. 

“I’m going to have to act alone because we don’t have enough resources. We’ve run out of money,” Obama said last week, then hedged by saying the move might merely be reallocating existing resources.

If he would only get the we've run out of money part...

As of Aug 10 2014, here are the specific EOs.

Party time!

Added 4/23/13

Even as he blamed sequestration for the decision to cancel White House tours that would have cost a total of $2 million for the rest of the year, it was revealed that the known cost of Obama’s Christmas vacation in Hawaii last year was at least $4 million.

That vacation was also the fourth one taken in Hawaii in four years, three of which involved separate flights First Lady Michelle Obama took to get there ahead of her husband. This year’s separate flight, necessitated by the president’s trip back to Washington to complete the fiscal cliff deal before returning to Honolulu, cost taxpayers an additional $3.24, and ran the total tab for the 2012-13 trip to more than $7 million.

A lot more about their lavish trips in this article
