A Warm White House New Year’s Greeting: ‘This New Year’s Day, there is likely less joy and more fear and distress’

No holiday is spared from pathetic politicizing. A special greeting this New Year’s from Team Obama:

The White House on Wednesday increased its pressure on Congress to extend long-term jobless aid when it reconvenes next week.

Gene Sperling, the director of the National Economic Council, said the administration is behind Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) vow to bring up a cloture vote on a temporary extension when the Senate reconvenes Monday.

“This New Year’s Day, there is likely less joy and more fear and distress in the homes of 1.3 million Americans who this week have seen their unemployment insurance suddenly cut off,” Sperling said in a statement.

No mention from the White House on the horror stories unleashed on the millions more who’ve lost their insurance. King Obama, meanwhile, enjoyed a Hawaiian treat to ring in 2014.

“Oh my goodness,” one woman screamed.

“What’s up buddy,” the president said to the small boys on the far end of the line.

“Mr. President, you’re fantastic,” a woman shouted.

    Unemployment is “suddenly” cut off? It lasts for 99 weeks – how the hell is that suddenly?

    “Mr. President, you’re fantastic,” a woman shouted.

    Left unmentioned was that he had to go for a wardrobe change immediately after that incident, because upon hearing the undeserved adulation he shot a wad in his pants.
