Is it me, or does this indicate that our political leadership believe themselves to be above the rest of us? Eight years ago, the media was moaning about all of George Bush’s “vacations”. Now we see that Obama has spent even more time on “vacation”, but instead of going home, he goes to high dollar resorts. On top of that, the young miss Pelosi has scammed herself some USAF transport for her vacation, and it wouldn’t surprise me to find out that the taxpayers are paying her hotel bill.

This has the potential to be very interesting:
There seem to be two major aspects to this case, the first is that the Federal Government may not have had the authority to do what they did in the GM and Chrysler bailouts. The other is that since Obama’s father never became a US citizen, he does not meet the Constitutional definition of a natural born citizen, and is therefore not eligible to serve as President. If he is ineligible to be president, any legislation he signed is null and void.
Personally I believe the challenges to Obama’s constitutional qualifications to be without merit. The challenge to the bailouts, on the other hand, will have legs. While we won’t know how the courts will rule, and the final ruling is likely years away, I have always believed the bailouts of GM and Chrysler to be unconstitutional.

President Obama, after breaking the bank with his “stimulus” spending, now wants us to believe that he is going to limit the Federal budget. Check this out.
“President Barack Obama is expected to make post-recession spending restraint a key theme of his State of the Union address in January and an important element of the budget he submits to Congress a few weeks later. He is under increasing pressure, including from moderate and conservative members of his own party, to show he is serious about tackling a deficit that has become both an economic and political liability.”
All I can say is that anyone who actually believes this tripe should be declared legally incompetent.

While Venomous is celebrating his birthday, we have some news which shouldn’t surprise anyone, even though it is highly irritating.
It seems that our incompetent excuse for a chief executive has once again decided that the American President bows to foreign heads. Check here for details.
In my opinion, such activity qualifies as a high crime or a misdemeanor. Unfortunately, our sorry excuse for a congress will not even consider impeachment proceedings.
