Ta da! I finished the mascots’ presies!

Hey, it’s only the 20th and they only have to cross eleventy-seven states between now and Saturday. Hmm hmmm. And, no I did NOT finish their parents’ present. But it’ll be SO cool when I do finish it that they won’t mind at ALL. Or else they’ll be really polite and pretend they didn’t care, like they did when it took me three years to finish their wedding quilt. Ahem.

The snuggle quilts are small, about 2 feet, and made with very thin batting and a flannel backing. They’re good for tiny babies who aren’t moving around yet … interesting to look at, easy to launder. Also great for car seats and huggy comfort and dolly blankies.

Bunny’s is Noah’s Ark themed; she also got two soft fabric blocks to match her quilt. Buzz’s is Mother Goose themed; he also got a big boy apron in a manly pattern for his art projects and helping Mama and Daddy with stuff.

When Dearest’s paternal grandmother passed away, we were allowed to choose sentimental reminders. I grabbed the button box and have been using its little treasures to “special up” gifts for the kids ever since.

Class v Crass – The third First Family Christmas edition

The Obama’s 2011 Hawaiian Christmas is likely be their most expensive tax-payer funded First Family vacation to date.

And that’s saying something.

The round trip cost of flying Air Force One from Washington to Hawaii and then back again comes to $3,271,611 all by itself.

(Camp David is 56 miles from D.C., which would require the First Family to take a quick ride on MH-1 with its usual escort.)

Then there is the USAF C-17 cargo plane needed to bring Presidential limos, helicopters and other essentials along.

(Camp David is already set up for every presidential need.)

Plus, there is the cost of transporting, feeding and housing all the security the family requires.

(Camp David is always staffed.)

Add in a few extras — like Michelle decided to travel separately for an addition $100,000 for personnel, travel and security — and you quickly hit the Big Round Number of FOUR MILLION DOLLARS.

Okay. So the president needs to get away from the pressures of his job.

Dubya went to his ranch, which had to be set up for a presidential visit only ONCE for the whole 8 years; the Left squealed every time about how many days he was out of the office during his presidency and how LAZY he was.

Obama goes somewhere new 8 times a year for official vacations (plus dozens and dozens of golf games and endless trips for supposedly presidential business that seem to oddly coincide with major Democratic fund-raisers) and the Left “goes Awwwwwww, he needs to get away.”

Still … FOUR MILLION DOLLARS?

For a two week vacation?

In what Oblahblah keeps on calling “the worst economy since the Great Depression”?

When was the last time your family could afford a vacation?

And how far would four million bucks go in this economy?

In 2010, the median household income in the U.S. was $49,445. We’ll call it fifty grand, to make the math easier.

Four million dollars would support EIGHTY American families for a year.

That is how much BETTER the Obamas think they are than the rest of us.

And how about the “evil Bushitlers”? Well, they had a very different set of values.

He’s so vain

Receiving a 10.0 in the “Obama is an arrogant ass” category:

I’m the fourth best president in American history ~ Barack Obama

Receiving a 10.0 in the “Lamestream Media makes itself ever less relevant” category:

60 Minutes Broadcast Edits Out Laughable Obama Claim as 4th Best President

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/pj-gladnick/2011/12/16/60-minutes-broadcast-edits-out-laughable-obama-claim-4th-greatest-presi

What? You sat through the thing and never heard any such thing?

That’s because 60 Minutes edited it out of the broadcast.

TRANSCRIPT – December 2011

KROFT: Tell me, what do you consider your major accomplishments? If this is your last speech. What have you accomplished?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, we’re not done yet. I’ve got five more years of stuff to do. But not only saving this country from a great depression. Not only saving the auto industry. But putting in place a system in which we’re gonna start lowering health care costs and you’re never gonna go bankrupt because you get sick or somebody in your family gets sick. Making sure that we have reformed the financial system, so we never again have taxpayer-funded bailouts, and the system is more stable and secure. Making sure that we’ve got millions of kids out here who are able to go to college because we’ve expanded student loans and made college more affordable. Ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Decimating al Qaeda, including Bin Laden being taken off the field. Restoring America’s respect around the world.

The issue here is not gonna be a list of accomplishments. As you said yourself, Steve, you know, I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president — with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln — just in terms of what we’ve gotten done in modern history. But, you know, but when it comes to the economy, we’ve got a lot more work to do. And we’re gonna keep on at it.

———————

“The issue here is not gonna be a list of accomplishments.” which he says right after listing his so-called accomplishments!

“I’ve got 5 more years of stuff to do … accomplishments in our first two years” I’m confused. Did this man LOSE the past year? We already knew he’s no math whiz (57 states), but this is seriously pathetic.

One can only guess how many times the media would’ve played the clip if George W. Bush had made the same bombastic claim to presidential greatness. — Obama can’t count that high, that’s fershure.
