Obama: I have some Hawaii laziness
The Politico ^ | December 23, 2011 | Jennifer Epstein

Posted on 12/23/2011 6:19:14 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

HONOLULU -- President Obama admits says his worst trait is that he's a little bit lazy and blames his Aloha State upbringing for his penchant for taking it easy.

"There is a deep down, underneath all the work I do, I think there's a laziness in me," Obama said in his interview with Barbara Walters that airs Friday night on ABC.

"It's probably from, you know, growing up in Hawaii, and it's sunny outside and sitting on the beach."

Obama said he also deplores laziness in others, saying "nothing frustrates me more than when people aren't doing their jobs."(continued)

“I have this strong urge to take and spend taxpayer dollars — and rub it in your face..”

Hey Obama — how about a pork sandwich?

Yes he did. I am under the impression he just visited there until he was much older. But this gives them the excuse to traipse Miss Big Butt to ‘his homeland’ to get away from her personal hell, The White House.

Do the Hawaiians mind being called lazy?

Obama said he also deplores laziness in others, saying "nothing frustrates me more than when people aren't doing their jobs."

Laziness for me but not for thee.

That explains why he has a visceral hatred for Americans... they are not doing their job of being Americans... otherwise the nation would have long ago dispatched the POS back to Kenya or the Abyss or whatever dank corner of the universe he slithered out from.

About eight years, more or less. One thing he'd learned is how to be High Maka Maka.

Nothing is ever the Kenyan’s fault.

For some reason that reminds me of the Triumph The Insult Comic Dog’s deal on the ‘Poor Hawaii’ weather skit. Maybe somebody can find it?

Welfare is something you get for doing nothing. I guess our president is getting the biggest welfare check on record.

He sounds pretty typical to me.

He doesn’t come from people that are known for their industry.

His father whoever that was(OBama or Frank Davis) never worked too hard, neither does his Aunt Zuni, or his Uncle who is here illegally.

The United States - Check
The American People - Check
Tsunamis - Check
Hurricanes - Check

Hawaii - Check

didn't he leave Hawaii after high school???

how often did he return to Hawaii before becoming president?

His background history is so murky its hard for us average American to know what is true and what is phony!!!

after all he keeps it all locked up, but someday Americans may learn the truth....HOPEFULLY

He makes me physically ill...

just hope he leaves our White House in Jan. 2013

Thanks 2ndDivisionVet.
"It's probably from, you know, growing up in Hawaii, and it's sunny outside and sitting on the beach." Obama said he also deplores laziness in others, saying "nothing frustrates me more than when people aren't doing their jobs."

You forgot to blame the ATM machines...they are at fault for all the job losses at banks, according to Obama.

This guy is such a total, text book classic narcissist that his name should be in the dictionary after the word "narcissistic."

Hawaii then must be THE lazy place to go to re-charge ones lazy batteries.

Maybe “lazy’ is Obamacode for “ incompetent? “

Aloha state upbringing?

Ignoring his racist attitude that Hawaiians are lazy, the Kenyan SOB grew up in Indonesia.

Of course, he knows the LWM will give him a pass — he can’t be racist, he’s only half white, and besides, Hawaii is in Asia (which one of the 57 states is it? I forget...must be number 56...) Of course no one will call him on his growing up OUTSIDE the United States...

So if Hawaii made him lazy, then what did he pick up during his time in Kenya? Would love to know how his cocaine sniffing affected him also.

And yet, depending on which poll you look at, 45-49% of the sheeple give him favorable ratings.

GOD help us!
