Obama's "Favorite" Things ...

Everyone has a few "favorite" things we enjoy doing in our spare time.  For some, it is traveling, while others enjoy gardening.  My husband enjoyed two things:  gardening and driving through the mountains during the summer months, stopping in at old barns and antique dealers, admiring and sometimes collecting old glassware.  He admired the workmanship and beauty of glass produced years ago, especially early American glassware. As for his hobby of gardening, he certainly had a "green" thumb!  Each year, his garden of flowers  and unusual plants grew and spread further across our front lawn and for anyone who enjoys gardening, you know this takes great patience.  Bill's garden was a work of love and he certainly loved what he could grow out of the earth, as it was a challenge for him in our brief summers in New England.

Now, if you asked Americans what they thought our President's "favorite" thing or hobby was, most would say without blinking an eye, it is golfing.  Nothing wrong with golfing, unless it takes time away from leading a  nation.  However, many of us were not aware of the fact that Obama's golfing and vacations are not his most favorite things to do and golfing pales in comparison to his Number One passion, which is signing Executive Orders, along with his second favorite thing, which is campaigning.  (After all, if you want to golf for another four years, and by-pass Congress by signing Executive Orders, campaigning is the thing this "one" must hold as his priority - until November's elections).  Here are a few examples:

Obama Has Signed 923 Executive Orders In 40 Months

Obama: Too busy for Wis. recall, not too busy to attend 160 campaign fundraisers

160 fundraisers since filing for reelection? Gosh, this presidency truly is Historic™.
On Monday, Man of the People Barack Obama told a reporter why he couldn’t make it to Wisconsin to campaign for Democrat Tom Barrett:
The truth of the matter is that as President of the United States, I’ve got a lot of responsibilities.
Translation: As Campaigner in Chief, I’ve got a lot of responsibilities.  continue reading
Hmm!  Watching the news these past few weeks and the call for a Congressional independent investigation about the leaks pouring out from the White House, it reminds me of the Nixon days: "Let me be perfectly clear ... I do not lie".  (Yeah, right!)  I am old enough to remember the hearings held on national news stations and Nixon's "henchmen" (as they were referred to during those hearings) who either were given prison sentences, or had their careers ruined for their part in the cover-ups.  Today, the word for the day in referring to Holder, is "cover-ups".  Sure sounds like history repeating itself, doesn't it?  Yesterday, Holder was quoted as saying, "I will not resign."  Holder is not the President of the United States.  However, where there's smoke, there's fire and I think I smell smoke pouring out from this White House administration.
Just wondering if the investigation will lead to Obama's role in harming America's national security and that of our allies.  Or, will the real cover-up be kept secret once Obama is voted out of office this November?  As a nation, America deserves answers, but time will tell ......
