Obama’s birthday rejected as holiday

Despite the fact that Barack Obama is beloved by many in his home state of Illinois, there will be no state-sanctioned holiday celebrating his Aug. 4 birthday.

However, the vote taken on this matter in the Illinois House of Representatives was close, according to a report on Thursday in the Washington Examiner.

Chicago Democratic representative Sonya Harper claimed that making the former president’s birthday a state holiday would “honor the man who adopted Chicago as his home and served in the Illinois state Senate,” but the vote fell short at 54-57.

Representative Steven Andersson of Geneva suggested the holiday be honorary, noting that “even Obama wouldn’t want the cash-strapped state to give state workers another paid day off.”

After all, even President Ronald Reagan’s Feb. 6 birthday is not a holiday, despite the fact that he hails from the Illinois town of Tampico.

    Obama is beloved by more than people in his state. I’m a moderate and that is what Obama was. He was intelligent, and thoughtful, taking in all the information he could before making a decision. I think he was (and is) treated the worse of any president In can remember since the 50, despite the horrendous state of the union he inherited. I never heard him complain about the past just improve the future.

    That is in stark contrast to our Trump who takes all the credit for a good economy and says he inherited a ‘Disaster’ At best he is a entrepreneur, not to be confused with any kind a proficient manager, (He has failed at any kind of a complicated business) and at worst, a textbook narcissist like I have never seen. I’m just hoping there are enough level headed Republicans in office to keep us out or world embarrassment, and worse, World War III.

Just a few things to think about with O’bastard and his side kick Valerie Jarrett #1-Ten plus TRILLION DOLLARS ADDED TO THE NATIONAL DEBT(more than all the previous Presidents combined) #2- Failed Olympic Bid (Olympic city to be placed on the slums owned by Guess Who?? Valerie Jarrett and family),very convenient !!! #3-Remember SOLYNDRA, Yup, that was O’bastards and Jarretts’ F.U.(five handred and thirty five million of the tax payers money down the shiter!!! #4-Remember how many CZARS(unconstitutional) O’bastard had?(20 plus)..#5-Michelle “O” had how many women attending her needs(try 24),the most any other first lady ever had was (2)…#6- O’bastard and family spent 1.2 BILLION just on vacations in his eight years..All from government records my friend!!!

    Face it Obama was the best Muslim President ever!
    As he promised he stood with the Muslims not the American People. He imported hundreds of thousands of Muslims with statistically 25% that want Sharia Law where our women would be treated worse than dogs. The next generation of Muslims will be indoctrinated to seek the destruction of our Constitution in favor of their 7’th century barbarism.
    Obama never had our backs and he did everything in his power to make the USA a 3’rd world country.

        Racist Mother!!! Eat CACA! Why does everything not white have to be so damn negative with you, you 101 Airborne TURD! You’re a disgrace to your uniform and service,

        • 101Airborne

          Lycanroc, That half-breed son-of-bitc@ is half white,does that make him a half a TURD!! Sh#t for brains!!! All you dimwits ever think of is race.. Try being objective some time and forget about skin color!! That MORON that occupied the W.H. for eight years was the most divisive son-of-a-bitch on the face of the earth!!! If you weren’t so race-blind not to have realized it, I feel sorry for you..You began your “RANT” with “racist mother” and my reply to that is “absent father”..Instead of you black males impregnating females and not taking responsibility for your actions, (76% of black babies born in the U.S.-father AWOL),try taking care of that situation before shooting your mouth off about whites!!!!!! Your half-breed Prez. didn’t do a dam thing in Chicago with black on black shooting deaths and never mentions the number of black abortions being performed with our tax dollars, yet wants to be showered with accolades.. Please state one positive thing accomplished by this “fraud” that made our country better, keeping in mind his ten trillion dollar spending spree to put our country in deep debt, O’bamacare promises not kept, Iranian F.U.,Solyndra F.U.(wasted $535 million tax-payers dollars),etc.etc.etc.

            Not “Patrick,” you pre-human primate. It’s PATRICIA. I probably should not expect precision from a creature which breaks out in truncated sloganized and non-sensical sayings–and thinks that these are arguments.

            Thank you, Lycan, I didn’t see that; my error. Nevertheless, despite the apparent confusion about which of the two sexes she, he or it thinks itself to be, Pat was correct in the statement about what it means to “trump.” And–although I erred in regard to Pat’s dysfunctional approach to genetics, I appear to be correct about the primate status of her critic.

            So far, no pertinent, or even coherent, reply has come back from him.

      Honor the alleged birthday of someone who has bent over backwards to hide his actual
      birth record? He spent many thousands on lawyers to keep his birth certificate hidden.
      Why? Maybe because an Indonesian citizen had no business even running for high
      office in America, to begin with. In order to be an Indonesian citizen (which “Barry” was
      when he was in school there under his step-father’s surname), one must completely
      renounce citizenship in any other country. There’s no such thing as dual citizenship in
      Indonesia. When did Obama become an American citizen after being Indonesian? Did
      he ever actually??? In college, he was registered as a “foreign student,” so the event
      of turning American must have been post college…. Celebrate a birthday still shrouded
      in mystery? I don’t think so!

    “Despite the fact that Barack Obama is beloved by many in his home state of Illinois,”

    Name FIVE of them. And we already have a day named for him, April Fools Day. He deserves a holiday named for him, about as much as he deserved the Nobel Peace Prize. And quit blaming IL for Obama, we’re NOT his home state. If you want to pin him on somebody, blame HI. It’s bad enough we really are HILLARY’S home state. Hopefully, some day we may be adding her and Barack to the Democratic Wing of one of our fine prisons. They can name a cell block for BOTH of them, his and hers.

  • ColoradoCommish

    How did “RTF” come to use a story out of “The Onion”….. What?!?!?….You mean this was real?

  • Batbear

    Marc Goldstone has said it all better than I can. However, I have these thoughts:
    He did increase some things. Look at the national debt.

    Like Democrat presidents before him, he gave to the world; Carter gave away our ownership of the Panama Canal. Clinton gave away our ownership of Subic Bay and destroyed tens of thousands of M1-A/M21’s/M-14 rifles which, highly prized by our military snipers, had to be repurchased by the Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yomama, er…I mean, Obongo…gave away our control of the internet. See? Obongo is right up there with the rest of ’em. I was worried that he might give away Gitmo or even Ohio.

    He also gave away the hard-earned victory our boys earned in Iraq in 2004. Threw it away.

    He gave us global instability–and expanded ISIS from a bunch of fruit cakes in pickup trucks to a global enterprise.

    He brought about KUCOO (Kenyan Unaffordable Care Order and Obsession), which will leave ALL Americans without governmental healthcare support by the end of 2018.

    He gave us BLM and unprecedented national racial tensions. He also gave bequeathed to us a network of spies in the intelligence community, for domestic spying on everyone–without even FISA court approval.

    What a guy. I would entertain the idea of a national holiday honoring his birthday–but only in Kenya.
