Hell, they let Moochelle live there, and if they made a list of all the peple necessary for the running of our country, she'd be at the bottom.

it's a waste. Of our money.

The President doesn't need to spend any time with the DEA. The DEA is quite capable of farking over the entire country without meeting the president even once.

F*CK THE COUNTRY!
I have a man date with Clooney.
 
2012-06-01 09:19:08 AM  
He met with the DEA once and Clooney exactly twice. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE.

F*ck you idiots.

I'm okay with any President hanging out with Clooney more than the DEA. Or maybe he could make Clooney a DEA officer, like Nixon did with Elvis. (No lie. Elvis used his badge to avoid having his luggage checked at customs so he could smuggle pills.)

Once again proving the old adage that it's good to be the king.

Obama also met with Willie Nelson 10 times, Snoop Dogg 15 times, and Andy Dick 27 times!

Hmmmmm

Why would the DEA be spending an time with George Clooney?
 
2012-06-01 09:58:51 AM  
I bet George Clooney has email AND a phone.

Did read read TFA? The point of the article is not that he's spending a lot of time with Clooney - it's actually the opposite. It's illustrating the point that the DEA is operating without WH guidance. There are other bits of evidence, such as dearth of visits from the DEA head to ANYONE in the White House.

The conclusion being, right there at the bottom, that the administration is not interested in the DEA, because nobody in the white house is bothering to meet with them, whereas the Bush administration had DEA honchos up in the joint quite frequently.

Of course they could have drawn the same conclusion by googling the DEA's budget and seen that under Obama the DEA's budget has been cut by 15% and field agents by 7%. But then it could be argued that every agency's had to tighten its belt over the last few years.

At any rate, I think that's an interesting and relevant point.

If this is the best criticism that conservatives can come up with they should just give up.

Yeah, reason.com isn't on the same level as breitbart or wnd, or something.

This just in, Barack Obama spends more time with Mooshell then with his cabinet if you include sleep. OUTRAGE!

Celebrities make money with their popularity.
Politicians get elected due to their popularity.

DC is the Hollywood of the East, albeit with uglier and older people. Of course they're going to rub elbows constantly. You have to be a pretty self-absorbed narcissist to be President. You have to wonder just how big Barry's head is going to get while he's in office.

I thought it was implied at this point. I think I figured it out with him though. he says stupid shiat to get replies, then his inbox fills up and he doesn't feel like such a loser, since no one e-mails him otherwise.
 
2012-06-01 10:22:19 AM  
Of course, the flip side of this is that if there were more visits logged people would be whining that government officials were too busy hanging out at the White House to get any actual work done.
 
2012-06-01 10:22:41 AM  

Headso: Yeah, reason.com isn't on the same level as breitbart or wnd, or something.


No, see, Reason wants to legalize pot and hates police abuse so they are totally independent thinkers. The fact that they mouth some of the derpiest right wing talking points is just proof of their objective truth.
 
2012-06-01 10:23:41 AM  
I see this as a huge positive.

The DEA is a completely useless government agency and a colossal waste of taxpayer money.

Barack Obama has spent more time having sexual relations with a black woman in the White House than meeting with the DEA.

Who the hell sends an email to a troll? That's like parking next to a cop at a speed trap and striking up a conversation.

It isn't the best.
It is just the most amusing and it shows how 0bama is so out of touch.

But I do love how every time something like this comes up, some 0bamanut comes up with line "if that is the best they could do, they should just give up".

With Unemployment increasing and the Economy slowing, I am sure 0bama loves that people talk about this rather than the real issues.

He fathered two mixed-race children with that black woman, in another state.

Gold is a conductor, not an insulator. George Clooney is dumb.

Think of Clooney as the administration's astrologer, subby.

Does that help?

Given Obama's college history, that seems kind of understandable.

You need music to go with it.

You can take off the "during an election year" part. Reason has been beating the drug war drum HARD in the last few weeks.

I would be perfectly happy if the president ignored the DEA forever, and I'd be overjoyed if he defunded the quasi-military human rights abusing civil liberties eroding motherfarker. Am I the choir? Are you preaching to me?
 
2012-06-01 10:39:27 AM  
Why does Obama need to meet with the DEA? Doesn't he have an Attorney General & Deputy Attorney General to deal with that department?

You'd rather Obama micromanage everything like Carter?
 
2012-06-01 10:40:20 AM  
REASON, A "LIBERTARIAN" PERIODICAL WHICH CLAIMS TO BE AGAINST THE WAR ON DRUGS AND FOR PRIVATE PROPERTY RIGHTS, IS ANGRY THAT OBAMA IS NOT ENCOURAGING THE WAR ON DRUGS, INSTEAD USING THE WHITE HOUSE AS IF IT WAS HIS PRIVATE RESIDENCE, WHICH IT IS.


That is all.

I'm sorry. You aren't allowed to complain about liberal leaning headlines, sarcastic or not. Only headlines from the right can be sources of derision. I'm going to let you off with a warning this time.

And once again there are other ways of meeting with people other than face to face. There is phone, email, conference calls Skype.

For example when I worked at Chase the manager of my department was in Columbus Ohio and I was in Chicago. I met with him face to face 1 time in the 2 years that he was my manager. Did that mean that my department and I were operating without guidance? No it doesn't because we had regular contact with our manager through email, individual phone calls and conference calls. And if you and the author of the article can't understand this, you are very much out of touch with how things operate today.

If the DEA needs to speak to a Constitutional scholar, maybe Reason magazine wet wipes could offer one from their staff.
