Obama To Spend $7.2 Million of Taxpayer Money For Fiscal Cliff Photo-Op

As Rodney Dangerfield said, "He really cares. About what I have no idea."

So he took a 10-hour flight from DC to Hawaii last week, then he’ll take another back to DC Thursday. Once they pretend to make a deal, he’ll hop back on AF1 to resume playing golf, then will return in a couple of week for his lavish inaugural.

Once all this flying is done that’ll be around 40 hours travel at a cost of at least $180,000 an hour for a tab of $7.2 million. And that’s just to fly AF1, never mind all the other ancillary costs, which probably boosts the tab to a tidy $10 million or so.

Plus, as JWF notes, there's the additional cost for Michelle in Hawaii.

Obama will leave office with high approvals, and his ugly wife will run for Senate in 2016 and win. And that will be followed by the return of terrorism that will make Al Qaeda look like Romper Room.

As much as I think the energy boom might be enough to create something like a booming economy, I doubt that the EPA will let it happen.
One of the reasons the tech boom was possible was because it was driven by industries in which the government had little interest, i.e. software and computer hardware. The energy industry doesn't have such a luxury AND it happens to be run by people who aren't SWPL hipsters like Zuckerberg, so I just don't see it having as much freedom to operate.
Even then, the energy boom is concentrated in locations far from the blue cities where the housing bubble was primarily located, at least at first, which is also unlike the tech boom, which was concentrated in CA and to a lesser extent NYC. It could definitely cause some localized housing bubbles, but nothing national that I could see.
That said, Obama's idiot followers seem to have inured themselves to economic hardship as long as they get to cheer on his speeches, so I don't even know if a return to the Stone Age would get them to reconsider their allegiance to him. They'd find some way to rationalize how awesome it is.

No. Clinton had two things Obama does not.

1) Charisma.
2) A Strong Republican House (strong in the sense of willing to expend political capital to get things done, not just in numbers).

Remember that so much of what Clinton is praised for were actually Republican policies.

Remember the 'October surprise' of Clinton's last year in office when he pushed for China to get permanent most favored trade status? Which set the conditions in place for 40,000 factories in the USA to shut down in the next decade, and is the root cause of our lingering financial difficulties.

It's gonna be tough to beat that item for taking the USA now a notch or twelve, but I'm sure 0bama will come up with something just as odious.

135 The Cloward-Piven rules these folks are playing by are pretty much exactly the same as those that were played by Richard Pryor's character in Brewster's Millions.

Spend it all, with nothing to show for it, and you win.

That's what they're doing. From the CBO (or was it the GAO?) telling their staff to spend as much taxpayer money as possible -- order exorbitant art for the lobbies of your buildings and offices; order the most expensive office chairs, desks, computers; continually redesign your offices, hire feng shui consultants, architects, artists, engineers.

SPEND IT ALL.

To spend or not to spend, that is a false choice.

Of course we must spend. Otherwise, how will voters know who to vote for in the elections? It is the fact that the 1% or 2% or whomever is out there that has money that I must redistribute exists for me and the Federal government to tax, to ensure our perpetual power in Washington, DC.

Keeping the entire British royal family living in high style last year cost British taxpayers $58 million.

Keeping the Obamas and their various minions in high style (including the $100k-a-year federal employee who walks the family dog, the full-time makeup artist for Empress Michelle, etc.) cost U.S. taxpayers 1.4 BILLION last year.

Just not at public expense (but they have convinced themselves they in fact did do it at *direct* public expense).

I honestly think, at some level, those two are sociopaths. Or, I'm having trouble not believing it, and I'm finding it much easier to predict behavior once I do. Before, I couldn't very well.
