After the recent legislative hurtles (the tax deal, DADT, and the DREAM Act) Barack Obama and his family are heading off to Hawaii for their Christmas vacation. Everyone deserves a vacation now and then, but the current president has been on many vacations since being inaugurated in January 2009.
Barack Obama has been on more golf outings during his first term than George W. Bush did during this eight years in office. And he just doesn’t go on vacation, he goes to places that cost many pretty pennies. He’s been to Martha’s Vineyard and all the way to Hawaii a couple of times. Hawaii is like half way around the world! And what do you think they eat during their vacations? Carrots and ranch dressing? Heck no, we know Michelle Obama loves her buttered lobster tails.
The Obamas seem to enjoy spending the taxpayer’s money to pay for their lavish vacations. What’s wrong with spending the Christmas holiday at either the White House or Camp David? Or why can’t they go back to Chicago? Why must it be all the way to Hawaii? If a Republican president did this, the left would harp on him/her with no end in sight. Spend time in the continental United States for goodness sake.
Barack Obama just doesn’t get it. 2012 can’t come soon enough.
I know that what I am about to say might enrage many people, but it involves something that many Americans are expressing confusion and anger about. And that something is Barack Obama’s missing Birth Certificate. This is an issue America never had to endure with previous presidents. We’d think that it’s common knowledge to anyone running for president that you must be a "natural born citizen" of the United States to seek the most powerful political office in the world.
To be fair, it’s not just Obama’s fault that he didn’t release his real Birth Certificate. The Democrat Congress, the Supreme Court, absolutely no one brought the issue to light while this inexperienced paperweight was campaigning throughout the country. They just allowed it to happen, even when his America-hating wife said that this was "the first time I’ve been proud of my country" during a campaign stop in a heavily socialistic community. No one dared to bring it up. And why? The Constitution clearly states - in plain English - what the rules are for those seeking the presidency.
We can look back to the year 1793. This is where Albert Gallatin, a future Secretary of the Treasury, was elected to serve in the United States Senate. On December 2, 1793, however, other members of the Senate filed a protest against Mr. Gallatin stating that he didn’t meet the residency requirement (9 years) in order to be eligible to serve in the upper chamber. To make a long story short, the issue was presented to the full Senate who then voted to expel Gallatin. This man was kicked out of the United States Senate for not being a natural born citizen of this country and not meeting the residency requirements.
If Albert Gallatin can be removed from the Senate, then Barack Obama can be removed from the White House. We need people with a backbone to bring up the issue and fight it until it’s dead. What is currently happening is so illegal, and Obama himself can possibly find himself in hot water if these facts are proven to be true: that he knows he wasn’t born here but he ran, won, and is serving as this country’s president anyway.
Something like this should carry imprisonment and everything he’s done since January 2009 be overturned. And then John McCain and Sarah Palin should immediately be sworn in as our president and vice president. People need to wake up and see what’s happening to our country. A real American wouldn’t wake up every morning and decide how he’s/she’s going to wreck the country today. He is destroying us, and it’s now time for us to destroy his credibility and expose him as a criminal for posing as President of the United States as an illegal citizen.
If he’s a natural born citizen, then why doesn’t he release the one document that would lay this distressing topic to rest once and for all? He knows the truth, and he better bring it forward before someone else does. Show us the document already.
Barack Obama deserves to lose - and to lose big - during the 2012 Presidential Election. Ever since being enthroned in January 2009, he has done absolutely nothing but take America and the American People away from what America is supposed to be: healthy, strong, and free. America is being weakened, my friends. Obama wants it to happen so he can gain total control. We cannot allow that to happen.
A few states; Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Indiana, Maine, and Wisconsin are states that Republicans now control both the governor’s offices and both houses of the state legislatures. The GOP also holds the governor’s offices in Nevada, New Mexico, Virginia and Iowa. All of these states could very well be Republican pick-ups during the 2012 Presidential Election.
There are states out there [Texas] that stand to gain House seats, and there are states [New York] that stand to lose House seats. I think that would be a splendid thing, due to the fact that the New England states are over represented in the House of Representatives. That in itself is uncalled for… everyone in this country should be equally represented. Hopefully this will change very soon.
Whoever wins the Republican Nomination hopefully will have an easy ride in defeating the first anti-American and socialistic President of the United States. We deserve better, we demand an actual leader with actual experience who can protect our small businesses, not force people to purchase health insurance or face a fine, as well as strengthening our reputation around the world and do everything they can to keep our military the strongest in the world.
2012 is coming, America.

The Palin White House Christmas will be especially fun. Gone will be the days of Michelle Obama trying to shame teenage girls into eating disorders. Bristol, Willow, and Piper will be in kitchen baking cookies and making a ginger bread house.
Angels will be allowed again on the White House Christmas trees (which will again be called Christmas Trees; not Holiday Trees) in place of the left over Chairman Mao balls from the disgraced Obama’s.
Michelle Obama is now back in Chicago and once again not proud of her country.
Then, on Christmas eve, Madame President Sarah Palin addresses the nation:…

On December 4, 2009, pollster Matt Towery predicted that President Barack Obama’s approval ratings would drop to somewhere in the mid-40s by mid-2010. To his surprise, it took only a few days. By the second week of December, Obama’s approval had faded to 47 percent in a Gallup poll. The number of Americans who approve of the president’s job performance has gone as low as 41 percent, and he fares even worse among independent voters. All of this despite incessant drum-beating on his behalf by the MSM.
At the same time, Sarah Palin — whose favorability rating in some polls went as low as 39 percent in July when she resigned as Alaska’s governor — is currently at 46 percent in a recent AP-GfK poll, even though the MSM has treated her to a barrage of disparagement perhaps unequaled in American political history. Yet among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, Palin is viewed favorably by 80 percent — a higher rating than any other potential GOP presidential candidate. And 63 percent of everyday Americans say their views are more like Palin’s than Obama’s.
At first glance, Mrs. Palin and President Obama have many things in common. They are both physically attractive, mid-40s young, and have attractive spouses and families to which they are openly devoted. Both have strong leadership qualities and are dynamic speakers, arguably the two best on the political scene in recent years. In addition, they share to some degree an outsider’s perspective on American politics, hailing as they do from the states most recently added to the union, the only states which are not part of the continental U.S. Scratch beneath their personable surfaces, though, and they represent polar opposite visions of what leadership in this country should look like.
Obama presents as a victim; Palin a victor.
Dragged from pillar to post by an unstable mother and finally dumped on his grandparents, the young Barry Obama seems to have formed the habit of feeling sorry for himself early on. By the age of 12 or 13, as he tells us in his book, he ” … found solace in a sense of grievance and animosity against my [white] mother’s race.” He was mentored by Communist and sexual deviant Frank Marshall Davis through his teen years, and in college consistently chose to associate with radicals and Marxists. As a disciple of Saul Alinsky, he worked as a community organizer nurturing a sense of victimhood among the poor and disadvantaged. For 20 years he was a member of a church which taught black liberation theology, a cult which portrays black people as downtrodden and oppressed. He has built his career on appealing to those who prefer to consider themselves victims in this life.
Sarah Heath Palin, on the other hand, grew up in a lower-middle-class family in the demanding, near-frontier environment of Alaska, where she learned a can-do attitude early in life. She led her high-school basketball team to a state championship while playing on a broken ankle. As a young wife and mother she worked with her husband on his salmon-fishing boat in all kinds of weather. Since being selected as the 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate, she has endured personal attacks and vilification unprecedented in living memory. Far from being a victim, she chooses to display courage, grace, optimism, and what can only be described as a joyous spirit…

I believe one-hundred percent that if Sarah Palin decides to run for President in 2012 she can and will win the Republican Presidential Nomination and go on to miserably defeat Barack Hussein Obama. Our current president is taking America down the wrong path; he wants to destroy this country so he can garner absolute control in the aftermath and recreate our country as a socialist metropolis.
We cannot allow him to continue, we need to stand strong and fight until he is out of office and far, far away from the nuclear launch codes. He is also ineligible to be in the White House, and let’s all hope the coming Republican Majority in the House and our members in the Senate begin a long investigation into the secrets Obama continues to hide. What other president would be allowed to run and get inaugurated without ever showing his authentic Birth Certificate?
There’s something fishy going on here, and that is why our choice in 2012 must be the right one, or else there will be no turning back. Barack Hussein Obama is pure evil, and he must be stopped as soon as humanely possible.
I am thrilled that our country’s Congress has voted to repeal the Clinton-era rule that forbid gays and lesbians from serving openly in the armed forces. I always thought DADT was a waste of paper and unworthy of life. People suffered through undeserved treatment that one would seem unthinkable within the world’s most powerful military.
DADT was a form of discrimination. For example: If Walmart banned gays and lesbians from working openly and then terminated them for “coming out” or if others knew about their sexuality and reported it, and then terminated them for this, you can bet that they would receive a talking to from the government. This is what our own military was allowed to do … and wrongfully so.
I also propose that all gay and lesbian servicemen and women who were wrongfully discharged be reinstated immediately and without delay. A strong military isn’t only strong with certain people, it is strong with all people.
Earlier today during a weekend voting session, the United States Senate chose not to legalize the enormously feared DREAM Act. Democrats couldn’t garner the 60 votes required to pass the measure; the final tally was 55-41. They were only five votes shy of victory, and that is a great thing for America.
The DREAM Act received heavy opposition from Republicans and a handful of Democrats. They saved America’s sovereignty by choosing to vote against this amnesty rubbish that would of only damaged our nation beyond repair. As I’ve said before, this legislation wasn’t meant to “give the children of illegal aliens a chance at citizenship.” The only goal was to enact massive amnesty and give the Democrat Party millions of added votes for their socialistic agenda. Haha, and they failed.
This is a great day in America. Giving illegal aliens - and a lot of them criminals - “citizenship” would have damaged our resolve. They don’t belong here, and should be kicked out with no questions asked and answered. I propose the coming Republican Majority to write and introduce the GBTM Act … the Go Back To Mexico Act. Now, that would be a great sense of achievement!
An immigration bill that would blaze a trail to legal status for hundreds of thousands of undocumented students went down in flames in the Senate on Saturday, delivering a critical blow to Democrats and Hispanic activists.
Even though the House approved the DREAM Act last week, the Senate fell five votes short of the 60 needed Saturday to advance the bill past Republican opposition.
President Obama said in a statement he it was “incredibly disappointing” that Senate Republicns blocked the bill.
The DREAM Act, which opponents have decried as a “nightmare,” is now likely to languish for years with Republicans taking back control of the House and picking up an additional handful of seats in the Senate next month.
Both sides, which have fought tooth and nail over the bill, immediately reacted to Saturday’s vote.
"Now, the next Congress can start to put unemployed Americans back to work by eliminating the ability for illegal aliens to hold jobs and by reducing the number of unnecessary permanent foreign workers we currently bring in legally every month," said Roy Beck, president and founder of NumbersUSA.
Rea Carey, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, said, “It is deeply disappointing that the Senate today refused to even allow a vote on the bill.”
House Democrats vowed the fight was not over.
"Though disappointed by the result of today’s DREAM Act vote in the Senate, we are not deterred in our determination to continue advocating for this critical legislation," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement.
"Today we mourn, but tomorrow we shift back into gear to fight for justice and inclusion in America," said Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill.
Many young illegal immigrants had been pressing Congress to pass the bill in public demonstrations, and going public with the fact they are in the country without permission in the hope that their stories would help them claim a legislative victory.
But opponents insisted that the legislation is “backdoor amnesty” that encourages more people to come to the country illegally or overstay their time-limited visas. They also argued it rewards law breakers.
"This bill simply ‘incentivizes’ and rewards more illegality. And, if it passes, what principle would lawmakers cite to object to another amnesty, for another group, and another one after that?" Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, ranking Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, asked at a news release.
Meanwhile, immigration officers had already signaled that the bill’s defeat would not change the way they do business.
Assistant Homeland Security Secretary John Morton said Friday in a conference call with reporters that immigration officers are unlikely to take extraordinary steps to arrest young people in the country illegally should the bill fail in the Senate.
Immigration officers will continue their focus on immigrants who have committed crimes or are a threat to the public, he said, adding that they will handle cases of non-criminal immigrants on a case-by-case basis.
The “DREAM Act” isn’t meant to give illegal aliens a chance at citizenship, it is a ploy for Democrats to garner more - millions more - votes so they can cement their incompetent and un-American majority for many years to come. The majority of Americans saw this, and fought it through thick and thin, and then we became victorious today when this amnesty bill died miserably in the Senate.
The American people aren’t stupid, but the Democrats in Washington look at it differently; they think we’re nothing but burdensome, misinformed people. Barack Obama wanted more votes, that is the only reason this crap of a bill was reintroduced … Obama is losing big and thought this would help him out of the monstrous hole he dug for himself. He failed, the Senate failed, and the American people won yet again. This is something to be proud of, my friends.
Our voices are beginning to be heard, but that doesn’t mean we give up now. We need to continue fighting for the sake of us, our futures, and our great country.
“Life is too short to compromise time and resources… it may be tempting and more comfortable to just keep your head down, plod along, and appease those who demand: “Sit down and shut up,” but that’s the worthless, easy path; that’s a quitter’s way out. And a problem in our country today is apathy. It would be apathetic to just hunker down and “go with the flow.” Nah, only dead fish go with the flow.”—SARAH PALIN
I’m just going to come out and say it: Don’t Ask, Don’t Tellshould be repealed. In my opinion, gays in the military aren’t going to work any more or any less than their straight counterparts who are also serving their country. One’s sexuality shouldn’t have any bearing on whether or not they’re able to serve in our military.
Employers have a requirement where no one will be denied employment due to their race, nationality, sexual orientation, or religion. How is our military different from this? Isn’t the United States Armed Forces an employer? Discharging servicemen and servicewomen due to their sexuality, on this planet, would and should be considered as discrimination. This is not right.
Our military shouldn’t single out fellow Americans due to what they prefer in their personal lives. DADT needs to be killed for the sake of our servicemen and servicewomen, our military, and our great country. It’s time for some change.
I hereby urge our nation’s House and Senate to vote in favor of repealing this absurdity and make things right. Also, those who were wrongfully discharged due to their sexuality should be reinstated immediately. We are better than that.
Conservatives4Palin is a web community dedicated to promoting former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. C4P highlights Governor Palin’s activities and exposes the baseless, idiotic lies constantly uttered by those from both the Left and Right. The website is constantly updated with all the latest Sarah Palin news. I highly recommend this site for all who support the former Governor.
Is there already a Tea Party National Committee? I am not sure why I thought of this question, but it seems destined to happen with the way things are going. If there isn’t such an organization, then I call for one to be established.
The Democrat Party is on the verge of destroying these United States. Republicans aren’t any better, with some voting for the current earmark-bloated spending bill. However, most Republicans are speaking out against this bill, such as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
As posted on Fox News’ website, the majority of Senate Republicans are calling for the entire 1,924-page, $1.27 Trillion spending bill to be read aloud in the Senate Chamber, a move that would last approximately 40-hours. Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), the Minority Leader, encouraged his fellow Republicans to stand against the bill and stated: “Americans told Democrats last month to stop what they’ve been doing; bigger government, 2,000-page bills jammed through on Christmas Eve and wasteful spending.”
Senator John McCain (R-AZ), the 2008 Republican Presidential Nominee, stood tall in the Senate Chamber today and said: “Are we tone deaf? Are we stricken with amnesia?” He also tweeted the top 10 earmarks within the bill, a few of them are posted below:
1). $247,000 for virus-free wine grapes in Washington State.
2). $413,000 for peanut research in Alabama.
3). $235,000 for noxious weed management in Nevada.
4). $400,000 for solar parking canopies and plug-in electric stations in Kansas.
What the hell are the Democrats doing? They obviously didn’t hear the voices of the American People last month, and they can be quite sure they will hear our voices - louder than ever before - come the 2012 elections.
It was all for fun, but I am surprised by the results.
In our 2012 brackets, Herman Cain reigns supreme as the reader pick for 2012.
Now, to be fair, he also has a huge twitter following and microphone to drive people to vote. He garnered 8,900 votes to Governor Sarah Palin’s 8100 votes. Mighty impressive.
Herman Cain is the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, a radio show host on WSB in Atlanta, and, judging by RedState Readers, the Republican Party’s 2012 Nominee for President of the United States.
He’s a tremendously good speaker and a thoughtful conservative. He rejects the idea of “big government conservatism” and believes in empowering individuals. I like Herman Cain and, though truth be told I never thought he’d make it past Mike Pence, I am delightfully surprised by the results.
It’s all for fun folks. I wouldn’t too much stock into it, but I would say it is a good sign for Herman Cain that, being relatively unknown, he can generate that much enthusiasm for himself. Works for me.
P.S. — Herman spoke at the RedState Gathering 2010. See what happens when you fire up the grassroots? Better plan on coming to RedState Gathering 2011. Details on that soon.
