Reporter asks Obama about fiscal cliff; President Empty Chair: ‘We’re doing Christmas shopping’

President Obama marked Small Business Saturday by visiting One More Page Books, an independent bookseller in Arlington, Va.

Per the pool report, the president was asked a question about the looming fiscal cliff. His answer? More Eastwooding:

Can’t you reporters just let him eat his waffles, er, pretend to care about small business? Or is buying 15 books his answer to the fiscal cliff?

Now if only he’d really show his support for small businesses by not forcing them to comply with crippling Obamacare mandates.

    I wish he’d buy a copy of Real Economies for Real People…it’d probably give him nightmares, though.

    well at least he bought books… even though they are mostly children books
    but he bought them at a small store… that was most likely to have holydays discount
    but still that’ll help the owners… for a few days before they run out of that money and obamacare enters on full potential

    Most of those 15 books will go to deserving folks in the WH Communications division, including the kids who ghost-write his tweets and press releases. What? You don’t think his own kids read that stuff any more, do you?

    Hey Barack….23 million Americans cannot afford to “do Christmas shopping”…Then again, you don’t give two shits, either, do ya??

    • TundraThunder

      He may have bought the books for his “csars”. I hope some of those books are titled “Economics for Dummies”.

      • Joe W.

        He wouldn’t bother to read them. Too much golf to be played….

        • TundraThunder

          That’s true, but I said the books would be for his csars, not himself.

          According to an insider he’s not that smart. His grade point average at Harvard was 2.6, so no wonder he needs a teleprompter. I doubt he reads at all.

            Tundra – you provide a Wiki page for a European definition/spelling of the word used to describe a European monarch or ruler? Hilarious. In the US we don’t use Tsar or Csar, the word is Czar, Did you even bother reading the public-written definition you provided?

    Re-check inventory yet?

    Obama just purchased, “Being Commander-n-Chief for Dummies.”

    • sue

      Good one!

  • Janet C

    He does not have to do with out anything. He buys what he wants, gives his family trips and all when we can not take trips and can not buy for our families because of his not knowing how to help the American people.

  • http://alert-up-usa.com/ AlertUpUSA

    Like I’ve been saying, this should be no surprise.

    Obama plans to DO NOTHING to the economy except accelerate it’s decline. That is part of the playbook. Once the economy has been decimated, the populace is ready for his Controller’s to control.

  • digitalPimple

    The reporter failed to mention the children books were for him.

    Does anyone recall the last “terror attack” on America? 911 George Bush told everyone to just go Shopping. Don’t let the terrorist win. Well I ask you this? Who built this “Fiscal Cliff”? Obama Bush? Our current and past 7 Congresses perhaps. I submit to you that these administrations have and will do more damage to America than 10 Bin Laden’s would have done had they been left alone to reign down Islamic terror.

    These political elitist have damned our grand children and great grandchildren to a life of fiscal servitude to the state. The only out they have is a revolution to remove our corrupt government through State Nullification of everything handed out by the Obama administration.

    • lcky9

      you are correct this has been going on through at LEAST 20 years of government.. It’s just become more apparent under Obama people are FINALLY waking up..

  • TocksNedlog

    He was elected to lead, not to read!

    • http://twitter.com/mileymay2010 tlc_ darling

      The sad thing is…this puppet hasn’t a clue how to even attempt to try and lead himself out of a paper bag. So, he’s better off reading. We are all safer that way.

  • Larry diaz electric

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    I hope they inventoried after Fuhrer Dingleberry left. Not that it would make much difference from a practical standpoint.

    If Dingleberry follows the same pattern he did heretofore he’ll “forget” to pay for most— if not all— of his purchases.

    Some of those places he stunk-up still haven’t been paid… otoh, if you complain too loudly, Der IRS will come a-nocking– as they did with that waitress who refused to back down after he did “The pResidential Dine & Dash” when she waited on him.

    I guess it gives the phrase “Royally Stiffed” another meaning.

    Remember when Bush the first went shopping for socks and the leftwingwackos in the media said this was the Bush stimulus program?

    You will notice the leftwingwacko media won’t say buying 15 books is the Obama stimulus program. That’s because he’s trying to purposely destroy the economy.

    4) “How to succeed in the Presidency without really trying”
    5) “Our bodies, ourselves”
    6) “Women are from Venus, Men are from wherever my wife tells me they are”

    And how much revenue did the bookstore owner lose while the SS cleared the place out so Potus and his kids could go shopping for a photo op? Shameful!
