Overnight Open Thread



Interesting observation:

Just like the Clinton Clan before them, the Obama Clan have no actual home.

President Reagan had his ranch in California; President George HW Bush had his home in Kennebunkport; President ‘Dubya’ Bush had Crawford, Texas; but just like President Clinton, President Obama has no central base; travelers never do.

Specifically because of a life determined by self-interest ideology, when the time comes to dismount the high horse there’s a common inability of Clinton and Obama to do so. There is a very specific dynamic, a symptomatic common connection.

This commonality represents the one litmus test which should apply to anyone seeking higher political office: If your home is contingent upon “the office“, the alarm bells which identify self-serving shallowness should sound loudly.

This reality also provides inherently predictable evidence of what will follow Obama’s time in office; his inherent inability to go quietly into a post-presidency. Unlike his predecessor Barack Obama will be a loud, visible and blame-casting antagonist toward President Donald Trump.

At various times Obama has lived in Hawaii, Indonesia, Southern California, NYC, Chicago and Washington DC. After he leaves office he will remain (at least temporarily) in Washington. Apparently the Obamas have no interest in returning to Chicago. We hear rumors that he plans to buy a house in either Hawaii, Palm Springs, or both.

I’m guessing he and Michelle will live separate lives but maintain the pretense of a marriage, just like Bill and Hillary.

Buh-bye, Barry.

      I think Rosie has the right attitude dealing with twitter trolls.

      Much speculation on what EXACTLY Obama has planned for his post-Presidency. Yes, a foundation, a library to be built in Chicago for a gazillion dollars and hang around DC so Sasha can finish school (yeah, right, the Carters moved Amy, who attended a DC public school, back to GA, it’s really no biggie, military families rip kids from schools every 3 years or so but the Obamas don’t care about them, do they?). Why can’t they just go away graciously? We the people are paying them about 1.2 million/yr (includes protection, office space and other retirement bennies after 8 years on the job). A publisher is advancing the Obamas about 20-30 million to write their memoirs. I’ve seen those numbers bounce between 10 and 50 million, so I averaged them. 😉 I think I could live comfortably on that, even in NYC.

      Just caught up with the Dec 19 People Magazine issue that featured the Obamas’ cover slobberfest of their past 8 years of being super fun or something over a dozen pages. I’m verklempt, the article was dumb (said by a person who READS People /snork)

      Jimmy Carter left office to build homes for poor people, and put Habitat for Humanity on the world map. He won a peace prize for that. Seems Barry wants to troll Trump the next couple of years. I’m getting a bad vibe about him. Our only hope is that Team Trump is smarter than the O and Hill-bots. Buckle Up 😀

        It wouldn’t take much to be smarter than O; the problem is O is a total cheat, liar and general overall scumbag.

  1. President Obama plans to keep a low-profile when he leaves office in January to better reflect on his time as president.

    “I have to be quiet for a while. And I don’t mean politically, I mean internally. I have to still myself,” Obama said. “You have to get back in tune with your center and process what’s happened before you make a bunch of good decisions.”

    Obama spoke with CNN’s David Axlerod, a former senior adviser, in his “Axe Files” podcast in an exit interview published Monday.

    He said he will write a book about his time as president while he continues to live in Washington, D.C., as his younger daughter, Sasha, finishes high school.

    He also told Axlerod that while meeting with his senior advisers recently, he started to grow sentimental about his time in the White House.

    “I got through about four minutes of the thing and then started, you know, getting the hanky out,” Obama said. “It feels like the band is breaking up a little bit.”


    • 49erDweet says:

      1. He will not stay quiet.
      2. He personally will not write that book.
      3. His “moment of sentimentality” was really anger because it’s over.

    • AFVet says:

      “I’m going to keep to myself when I leave the White House.”
      Bullshit,….you will be a tick on the world’s ass.
      You narcissistic moron.

    The “Ozymandias” (Ramesses II) statue, which truly represents Obama’s legacy after a year of President Trump. (FWIW, IIRC, the intact statue was 50 feet high, weighed ~2 million pounds, was quarried and carved at Aswan and transported ~600 miles. Was pulled down and broken by Persian invaders)

    • SHV says:

      Even more FWIW, I forgot the photo of Obama’s legacy:

    • kanaughty says:

      That was the name of one of the last breaking bad episodes. Now the title makes more sense. Because he built up this legacy but then it got torn down except for one bag of money for his son’s college.

      • Lulu says:

        Thanks for the explanation since I never watched Breaking Bad. I thought it represented how some pharaohs would chisel out the names of prior pharaohs because they were losers or fuck-ups.

  5. Dora says:

    What the hell did they pick him for?

    • lizzy says:

      What do you expect from the fearless mayor, Billie de B? He is Obama’s clone; any leftist trick he can pull.

    • kanaughty says:

      Wtf? Weird lame choice out of all people.

    • Lulu says:

      This is supposed to be a DISS at the most famous and powerful New Yorker in the world. I wish to remind NYC that he is busy right now and almost certainly doesn’t give a shit since he is talking to Putin on the phone about the Mideast and planning out how to remake the UN and the US federal government. Yes NYC we see your spiteful, stupid, global-ly, and multi-culty crap is and how you want to give away your customs and uniqueness like the Times Square New Year’s Eve celebration. Sad.

      What was her achievement?

      • kanaughty says:

        “Winning” in the polls 😉 haha!!!

      • Dora says:

        That is such a good question. 🙂

      • boutis says:

        Riding on a very talented politicians back and getting mad when she didn’t get hosannas for HIS work. She was also his “enforcer” which is never a popular position (but she was a natural at it) and thinking this would transfer to her own political career. It won’t and it didn’t. Democratic men were bludgeoned and threatened into her candidacy. Now that the 2008 “deal” with Obama is exposed for all to see (both for the epic disaster of Obama administration and the mess of the Clinton II campaign) the “men” are saying no more. Democratic “men” are looking at oblivion or extinction.

    • lateblum says:

      I find it interesting that a MAN is talking about what WOMEN feel and think. Who is this “Peter Daou” anyway that he is an expert on what women think?
      Or did he just see the movie?

  6. mothy67 says:

    Watching season 5 of 24. The weasel prez is so much like ohlah blah. He keeps saying me and I and is a wretched creature.

    That song brings back so many good memories and promises many more in the near future.

    This is one of the ways how elite power cliques start running out of gas. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/news/article-4066298/Staff-Davos-shipping-containers-car-parks.html
    “But unfortunate staff at the World Economic Forum could see a different side to Davos at its conference for the super-rich.
    The annual junket has become so popular for the world’s elite that the Swiss ski resort is running out of accommodation.
    The 2017 event sold out within days, and for 2018 it is thought there just won’t be enough hotel rooms to go round.”
    The flunky wannabe’s have to have nice stuff to keep them loyal and striving. Enough in salaries, really nice perks, etc with proximity to schmooze, arse-lick, party with the big-wigs is absolutely necessary. Sticking them in steel box jail cells in the parking lot with gas fumes, garbage dumpsters, and the manual labor servant class standing around smoking on breaks is not going to go over well and will be a graphic reminder that they are just hirelings and nowhere on the totem pole. Like with Democrat staff in DC, the globalist flunkies are finding out where the class divide really breaks.
