Romney scolds Obama's plans for Christmas vacation in Hawaii

By Star-Advertiser staff

POSTED:
LAST UPDATED: 12:48 p.m. HST, Dec 06, 2011


 

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney blasted President Barack Obama for planning to take his annual family Christmas vacation in Hawaii this year while the economy continues sputtering.

"His idea of a hands-on approach to the economy is getting a grip on his golf club. He's going off for 17 days in Hawaii," Romney said Monday night in a telephone call to a Cedar Rapids, Iowa town-hall meeting, according to media reports. "He'll be playing a lot of golf. He told Congress that they need to stay in session and pass his tax breaks for the payroll tax and that they shouldn't leave for vacation until they did that. And yet, he's going off for 17 days and for golf in the sun and I just think it's time to have a president whose idea of being 'hands on' doesn't mean getting a better grip on the golf club."

The White House said earlier Monday that Obama and his family are scheduled to depart Washington Dec. 17 for their annual Hawaii Christmas vacation. But that date could fluctuate pending the outcome of debates in Washington over renewing payroll tax cuts and unemployment benefits before each expire at the end of the year.

Obama, who was born on Oahu and spent much of his childhood here, returns each Christmastime for a low-key holiday with his family.

The president is not expected to have any public events during his Hawaiian vacation. He's due to return to Washington after the first of the year.

After last month's Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, Obama told a gathering of campaign donors on Oahu that his family would be returning for their annual family vacation but that his arrival would depend on Congress.

"Michelle and the girls will be back shortly for Christmas vacation, as we do every year. We'll see if Washington gets its business done so I can get here in time," Obama told about 250 donors at the Aulani Disney Resort at Ko Olina on Nov 14.

Having a President from Hawaii and appreciating Hawaii is just good for Hawaii. Rabid partisanship should never blind a citizen to dishonor the office of President of the United States of America. If he hated you as much as you hate him; you would be the one with the problem. You ever met the guy? My cousin played B-ball with him when he was in high school. I met him. He wasn't a Punahou snob or anything. He was just kick back cool, with a lot of the B-ballers from competitor high schools. That 'cool" that he never lost, and is known in certain circles as the Aloha spirit, contributes to his massive success on the global stage. How far did your partisan hate take you?

Irrelevant!! Wether he can play basketball, golf, talk to you cool, or rap with one side of his mouth and hit a golf ball at the same time, has no bearing on how well has done his job. When he took the oath of Presidency he swore to uphold the constitution. Yet he sends the troops into Libya as an of war without congressional approval violating the constitution. He tries to use the commerce clause in the constitution to force people to buy government health care? Again, unconstitutional. The man never had a private job in his life. He has increased the US deficit more than all the other presidents before him combined. That he acts "cool" while screwing up the country is just more evidence of his arrogant ideology of socialism. Beleive me, I don't hate him. He's actually the best thing for my investment portfolio, but he is bringing the country to the brink of economic collapse.

His vision of America is different then yours. He is succeeding at taking America farther away from yours and much much closer to his vision. It is hard to argue with success. Trading on fear is indeed a money maker; however, take a look at the amount of real debt America has, unfunded mandates, and unsustainable deficits. Your vision of America is not even on life support; its dead. America has spent itself into history's next fallen Empire, right on cue. Obama, Bernanke, and Geitner are positioning America to dominate in the New World Order. Like I said, hard to argue with success, since it is happening. The world is more dependent on the flow of U.S. dollars than ever before, no matter how much Ben prints. Change is the only constant; adapt or die. "It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change" – Charles Darwin. I am sorry that the Change you Hoped for was not in line with your vision, but America voted for the other vision. We have gone beyond the point of no return. Elections have consequences.

What success are you talking about? The success on $100,000,000 million dollar bonuses that bank executives got from getting bailed out? The success of unemployed getting 99 weeks of checks and refusing to take jobs? Your man has caused America to become the biggest debtor country in the history of the world! That gets alot of people worried. The only reason the world is dependent on US dollars is because we hold the status as the world's reserve currency via the Bretton Woods agreement in 1934. Once we lose that, we go the way of England. What kind of New World Order are you talking about? A one world currency? Government? Hell, they can't even get the Euro right. What kind of change did I hope for? This scenario is exactly how Peter Schiff, Marc Faber and Jim Rogers predicted. All governments can do is PRINT MORE MONEY!! Call it the twist, call it QE, call it 99 more weeks of unemployment checks. I take that back, governemts can also redistribute money-i.e. tax the rich and give it to the poor.

Basket currencies are not popular becausenobody knows who is going down next. The Swiss and Japanese can't function if their currency over values; so they are forced to ease or lock themselves. So, where is the hyper-inflation? Nowhere; America's markets are the last best chance. Try to think New World. The Old World is dead. The pain is spreaqd over time and space by exporting our economic woes to other soveriegn, but inter-connected economies. Our dollar; everybody else's problem.

You're right, Zimbawe is not the only printer of fiat currencies. Why would anyone need to qualify that statement? Are you sure you know what the term fiat currency means? Think back to 1971 when Nixon took us off the gold standar. The founders of the constitution put us on a gold standard so that the government could not expand the money supply and grow itself beond fiscal constraints. The Chinese are the largest importers and producers of gold right now and I believe they will make a bid to have the worls reserve currency or a basket of currencies. This will happen sooner or later. Ever heard of the Swiss Franc? They have a -2% yield --that is your true safe haven They have deflation so the purhcaser actually gets a positive yeild.

You must be smokin the good stuff.

Now he plans to send $100 million to Europe? WTF kinda plan is that? BTW the financial stabilization and bailouts were all adopted by congress before Obama even took office. All he has done is rob the oil reserves, print money and saddle us with a gargantuan boondoggle of Obama care.

Try and catch up. The Fed is bailing out Europe now and has been for years. European banks with U.S. assets licensed to bank have access to the Fed discount window and pay only 25 basis points to funnel money back to, say BNP Paribas via, say BancWest, or better yet First Hawaiian Bank. Getting off oil is a means to have the others burn thier reserves first because that is their power point. The U.S. will hold its reserves.

The Fed is also a govt institution. It's unfair to compare it to Federal Express, a private company. The fed is charged with fighting excessive inflation and high unemployment. But it can't do much if Congress doesn't have good fiscal policy. When Bernanke reminded Congress of its duty, Republicans said to him, "mind your own business and don't interfere with ours".

You raise many points, typical though of an ignoramous from the main stream media, expoousing Keynesianism. Number 1, banks have collapsed for hundreds of years and society has moved on. The way capitalism works, you let the incompetent fail, and competent banks will come in and take there place. It was foreseen well in advance by Peter Schiff that the housing market bubble would burst and the government would come in and bail out the banks. The only person in Washington DC that saw it coming in 2001 was Ron Paul, a free market , non Keynesian economist. Obama did not prevent a depression from happening. He's only kicked the can down the road a couple years, but when it comes, it will be alot worse now.

Initially, I just posted the first response. Then, it would vanish for review. Then, they all appeared at once; hence, the addendum as I tried to water down an acceptable response for our censor. On point, we are beyond Keynesian economics. That was the cover story. The goal was to print and spend and win the currency war. Print so many dolars as the fiat currency, that it becomes the only safe commodity relative to everything else in the world. China's yuan manipulation made them the producer in a command economy. Hence, for them to continue to manipulate, they had to buy more and more U.S. Treasuries, until they reach a point where they'd be screwing themselves to manipulate and held so many dollars that they could not afford to devalue or dump them on the world market.

Nope Obama did the right thing. The best evidence for that is the failure of Lehman Brothers. We don't have a way to insure depositors of large investment banks which do not have FDIC protection. When the small ones are allowed to fail as in this weeks NewsWeek story of MF Global (headed by former Sen. Corzine), investors lose everything in their accounts. MF Global at about a billion dollars is considered small enough to fail and isn't covered under the current law for too big to fail banks. By taking action he saved the accounts of many investors in these banks. Holders of IRA accounts there should be glad that he prevented a run on these banks that would have heralded a new Great Depression due wholly to Republican negligence.

The Federal Reserve is not a part of the US government. They are controlled by the Rothchillds and represent a secretive cartel of private bankers.

This was to prevent an expansion of the money supply as we are having now, which creates massive inflation and expansion of government beyond its means to fund itself.

My guess is he will do it again. Good example, Mr. Obama.

I support the president and I support that he needs his rest to operate at his best. I am saddened that people who live in Hawaii do not support a guy, who used to walk around Beratania street like the rest of us, and who is now the most powerful man in the known universe??
