Obama: Republicans Went Home For Holidays While a Mother Suffers “Who Needs Help Feeding Her Kids”

The president is currently vacationing in Hawaii.
From President Obama’s Weekly Address:

Just a few days after Christmas, more than one million of our fellow Americans lost a vital economic lifeline – the temporary insurance that helps folks make ends meet while they look for a job. Republicans in Congress went home for the holidays and let that lifeline expire…

…We make this promise to one another because it makes a difference to a mother who needs help feeding her kids while she’s looking for work; to a father who needs help paying the rent while learning the skills to get a new and better job. And denying families that security is just plain cruel. We’re a better country than that. We don’t abandon our fellow Americans when times get tough – we keep the faith with them until they start that new job.

Of course, this is quite a bold statement from the vacationing president who owns the worst economic recovery in history and the worst jobs record since the Great Depression.

White House Ignores Obamacare, NSA Debacles in ‘Favorite Online Moments of 2013’ List

The Obama administration on Tuesday published a year-end list of the White House’s “Favorite Online Moments of 2013” to propagandize the Team Obama as masters of the Internet.

The thirteen item list, posted by Kori Schulman, Director of Online Engagement for the Office of Digital Strategy, includes boasting about making cute GIFs for Tumblr; video clips for Vine; President Barack Obama holding online sessions on Kindle, Google+ Hangout and Zillow; Obama photos being posted by the administration on Instagram and several officials joining Twitter.

Not mentioned by Ms. Schulman is even a passing acknowledgement of the world renowned failure of the Obamacare Website in October of 2013 or the exposure by Edward Snowden of the Obama administration’s monitoring and cataloguing the online activities of nearly every citizen and leader of the world.

While the Obama administration, aided by a sycophantic media, portrays itself as the hippest, cutting edgiest players on the Web, the debut of Obamacare exposed the sheer incompetence and hubris of Team Obama for all to see.

Millions of Americans wasted millions of hours trying in vain to sign up for Obamacare online or to at least get information about available plans.

As several million Americans started getting notices their health insurance would be cancelled in 2014 because of Obamacare regulations, which was contrary to promises made by Obama and his minions, the White House tried to spin its way out of culpability.

Close presidential advisor Valerie Jarrett was roundly criticized for a tweet attempting to blame insurance companies for people losing their health insurance due to Obamacare.

Gonzaga Students Face Expulsion for Defending Themselves With Gun From Wanted Felon

NWCN reported:

Two Gonzaga University students could be expelled for using a gun to protect themselves at their University owned apartment.

GU leaders said the students violated a policy all students show know about when living in a school owned apartment.

Seniors Erik Fagan and Dainel McIntosh felt they needed to protect themselves in late October when a convicted felon came to their door asking for money. Fagan said he yelled for his roommate after trying to get the man to leave. McIntosh came down with his gun, which he has a concealed weapons permit for according to Fagan. The roommates said McIntosh scared the man off by flashing the gun.

The men called the Spokane Police Department and Campus Security. Police told them they did the right thing according to the roommates. Campus Security came back hours later. Security officers said they knocked but nobody answers. The roommates said that is when the security guard used a master key and came into their apartment.

Campus Security officers told the roommates that they violated GU policy and took the pistol. They also confiscated a shotgun the roommates had in their apartment.

Rush uncorks on major Republican ‘betrayal’

The Republican Party “betrayed” its own candidate, Ken Cuccinelli, in the race for Virginia governor, says radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh, claiming party leaders want to make New Jersey’s Chris Christie the GOP frontrunner for president in 2016.

“It’s a shame what happened to Ken Cuccinelli,” the top conservative voice said in his post-election analysis Wednesday. “He was betrayed by his own party. … Here was their chance to have a Republican governor in the state of Virginia, and they didn’t care.”
