In keeping with the celebration of the season it seems appropriate to modernize this great Christmas Carol with accomplishments from the White House taking their rightful place in history, five years into this President’s reign.
On the first day of Christmas Obama sent to me - A health care cancellation notice
Millions have received these so it makes the top of the list as the thing that people have become most familiar with this yuletide season.
On the second day of Christmas Obama sent to me - Two lying Secretaries of State
Traditionally this is where the turtle doves appear. Both Hillary Clinton and John Kerry (“Lurch”) may not be turtles but are often very much doves. And they can be counted on to spin the truth any which way you can.
On the third day of Christmas Obama sent to me - Three Washington Post Pinocchio’s
President Barack Obama made the ‘biggest Pinocchio’s of 2013’ as judged by The Washington Post’s Fact Checker with a) “If you like your health care, you can keep it.” b) The Benghazi terrorist attack and c) The sequester.
On the fourth day of Christmas Obama sent to me - Four missing ObamaCare Chiefs
According to CNBC 4 out of the 15 chiefs of ObamaCare insurance marketplaces run by individual states and the District of Columbia have either quit or gone on leave since the botched Oct. 1 launches of their health exchanges.
On the fifth day of Christmas Obama sent to me - the Five worst Cabinet Secretaries
According to US News and World Report the five worst appointments by the current President are “tax cheat” Tim Geithner, Janet Napolitano, Eric Holder Hilda Solis & Shaun Donavon. Thanks to Sean Hannity for the Geithner name enhancement.
On the sixth day of Christmas Obama sent to me - Six votes from a poll worker
It seems that Ohio poll worker Melowese Richardson voted under her own name twice and four times using different names. Gotta love that Obama lawn sign there 3 months after the election.
On the seventh day of Christmas Obama sent to me - Seven trillion dollars in new debt
We’re not quite there yet, but it’s clearly closer to seven billion than the six billion hit already and closing in by the hour.
On the eighth day of Christmas Obama sent to me - Eight crack cocaine dealers with commuted sentences
Eight federal inmates who were convicted of crack cocaine offenses saw their sentences commuted in 2013 to help those incarcerated because of harsh drug laws. The President said they’d been sentenced under an unfair system.
On the ninth day of Christmas Obama sent to me - Nine Thanksgiving pies
The White House Thanksgiving menu this year included: huckleberry pie, pecan pie, chocolate cream pie, sweet potato pie, peach pie, apple pie, pumpkin pie, banana cream pie and coconut cream pie. The First Lady did not comment on the nutritional value.
On the tenth day of Christmas Obama sent to me - Ten constitutional violations
The list is actually longer but Forbes has just published its most egregious violations. The mini-dream act, four illegal ObamaCare delays, two IRS policies, the expansion of recess appointments, an attack on college campus free speech and its record setting pace of outlandish Supreme Court arguments. (Clinton/Bush 43 averaged 2.4 unanimous Supreme Court defeats per year, in 2013 Obama had 15)
On the eleventh day of Christmas Obama sent to me - Eleven million dollars for a funeral
Even though President Obama and his entourage spent less than 13 hours on the ground in South Africa while attending Nelson Mandela’s funeral, the State Department budgeted over $11 million for ground transportation and hotels for the trip.
On the twelfth day of Christmas Obama sent to me - Twelve phones a tapping
With the current activities at the NSA the phones could clearly have reached any and all places on the list but they just seemed to go nicely with the traditional twelve drummers drumming.
And one more time down the list:
On the twelfth day of Christmas Obama sent to me:
Twelve phones a tapping
Eleven million dollars for a funeral
Ten constitutional violations
Nine Thanksgiving pies
Eight crack cocaine dealers with commuted sentences
Seven trillion in new debt
Six votes from a poll worker
Five worst Cabinet Secretaries
Four missing Obamacare Chiefs
Three Washington Post Pinocchio’s
Two lying Secretaries of State
And a health care cancellation notice.
