Update 4: Passes with 59 GOP votes against, including Dave Schweikert AZ-05, thank you Dave!!; Only $350 Million in actual cuts!?

Update 4: 4/14/10 2:23 pm: Crapulent deal passes 260-167 with 59 No votes from the GOP. Our wonderful new Critter, Dave Schweikert AZ-05 voted No.

Thank you Rep. Schweikert!!

Roll Call of vote here. Thank your Congressman (or un-thank them whatever the case may be!)

Update 2: Okay, your shout-out is retracted Speaker! What the hell is this?~- CBO says it is actually only $35oMillion, yes M, Million in actual cuts?? You are fxcking kidding right?

AP at HotAir has it:

So to sum up: In less than a week, we’ve gone from $61 billion in cuts to $38 billion in cuts to $15 billion in real cuts to $352 million in deficit reduction this year, which is less than one percent of the number agreed to in the budget deal. I can’t help but suspect that tea partiers might feel a tad … antsy about that trend….

I called Dave Schweikert AZ05 asked him to vote no and tell the leadership to Get Serious.

TOTUS seeks time alone with waffles: will take ‘vacation from his vacation’…

AceHQ has the scoop. Yeah it was really stressful what with having to distract everyone from the GINORMOUS deficit with appointing Bernanke, and then Teddy went and died on him, RIGHT THERE IN THE VINEYARD! How discourteous!

Reminder: April 2008, courtesy of v4Hill,  it was clear he was no workhorse then, he took 2 vacations during the election for Gawd’s sake..Hillary and MAC/Palin were all over the country rain, shine, voices gone..no vacations. both over 20 yrs older..uh-huh.

Well with all this kerfuffle you understand Barry needs time to eat waffles and so on and so forth, so he is taking a vacation from his vacation so reports our crack media…

…deputy White House spokesman Bill Burton told reporters traveling with the president that Obama will take a few more days off once he returns to Washington next week: Obama will be headed home by Sunday but plans to head up to the presidential retreat, Camp David, in the middle of the week.

“He’s looking to get a break from his vacation,” Burton deadpanned. “Obviously, some things have come up over the course of the week.”…

NO SHXT BURTON, THIS IS THE PRESIDENCY! SHXT HAPPENS, LIKE, CONSTANTLY! HE WANTED THE JOB REMEMBER?

Remember the Aerosmith album, Permanent Vacation? I would be fine with that if the journOlists promise not to talk about his golf game while he is on it…just appoint some career bureaOcrats and give the CIA back the reins on terrorism first please…

…On Thursday, no sooner had he returned from bike riding at the far western end of Martha’s Vineyard than he embarked on his third golf game of the week at the eastern end. Today’s course: the 7,012-yard Vineyard Golf Club in Edgartown, known as the island’s toughest…

Obama does his Garbo impression: He vants to be alone…

I watch old Greta Garbo movies Mr Obama and you are no Greta Garbo…

Via Drudge, Team TOTUS orders press to leave TOTUS and his family alone while they are on vacation…gee he used to suck up all our tv time now he wants a break? What gives? Doesn’t he lurb the media anymore..

Boston.com:

…the real message to those hoping to cover the president’s vacation is: really, we wish you wouldn’t….

Further, added press aide Katie Lillie, there will be no tolerating reporters using cellphones to call or text friends with the president’s latest movements on the island. Since the Vineyard has relatively few roads – and it’s easy to figure out how Obama would travel from one venue to another – those in the press pool must agree not to telegraph where he’s going.

Violators, she said, would be thrown out of the pool….(MiM here, reminds me of a scene in Caddyshack LOL!)

Listen, if he won’t allow them to REPORT what he is doing, then the journOlists SHOULD NOT BE THERE. It is now merely an  exercise in media schmoozing….
