Could they have traveled any further across the US for a vacay? These people have no care...I know , coincidence. wash. to hawi. Try KENYA.
It would be cheaper to just buy him a house over there and let him stay. Don’t come back!
Mele Kalikimaka Hawaii! He’s all yours for 17 days! Have fun! Heh heh heh.
I would almost be worth getting anyone else in office just to unload her wide load freeloading butt.
Obama is sticking it to”The Man”.
His folks will just laugh this off as Obama sticking it to the man.
If a republican president were taking expensive vacations while the country suffers he or she would be burned at the stake!
Obama works out at Semper Fit gym on the base next door.
During his workout, only active duty are allowed to use the facilities.
My brother, who is retired after more than 25 years in the service, and who works out daily at the gym, was told he could not work out while Obama was there.
He raised a stink with the Secret Service, and they finally let him in.
I am very worried that Obama will buy a home in my hometown of Kailua. He will ruin beach access.
He needs to stay in Chicago.
“... if a Republican president were taking expensive vacations...”
Can you imagine what a field day the press would have? Interviews with people thrown out of their home, visits to soup kitchens, interviews with poor children wanting a warm coat.... it would be a media massacre. Sounds from the media now.....crickets, crickets.
I really, really hope the RNC or the Republican nominee run ads on the hypocrisy of Barry and the Democrats. The number of and the costs of these vacations are counter to what they charge those of us who actually scrimp and save (and forego vacations) to make ends meet. Absolute hypocrisy!
Isn't it interesting that I feel the same way too......I can't wait.
I am so sick of Obama.Someone post something funny before my blood pressure goes up, please.
Can you re post the link it says 404?
Spare no expense, guys - it's only taxpayer money.
Guys who could and did work with their hands....can you even imagine in your craziest dreams, Obama in those photos?
And you can beat Bush nor Reagan did not spend 4 MILLION dollars for ONE VACAY!That would be a European tour.
No wonder there was such a screw-up over the “shovel-ready jobs.” Unlike these guys, Obama doesn’t even know what a shovel is.
Re your pics of Reaan and GWB with saws:
You can tell they’re genuine, not staged photos by looking at the chainsaws. The bars have both been used and the paint worn off.
If it were a politically staged picture of the sort that we’re becoming all too familiar with, the chain saw bars would have been perfectly spanking clean, and the saws likely never started.
I watched the USS BUSH pull in named after dad not dubya and I wondered about what a USS OBAMA would look like or it would ever exist outside of maybe a sub..
Sure to break the mood of despair - for a short while.
Hows about we make it Midway.
Hell they went beserk when Nancy Reagan bought new dishes for the White House ( and it wasn’t paid for by the taxpayers)
But the Press gets to go to Hawaii to cover his taxpayer funded vacation. The maistream press is working to re-elect their Obama the Great!
GWB got more flack for going to his own ranch in one jet than the Obamas get for going to Hawaii...IN TWO JETS!
They deserve it a lot more than the Obamas do.
There is no chance that 0bama will live in Chicago after he completes his “fourth best Presidency in history.” The 0bamas have stayed in their Chicago house for a grand total of two days since he was elected. Now, when he visits for a fund-raiser, he stays in a hotel. Meanwhile, his house has around-the-clock security. I have a feeling that when 0bama is done, like the Clintons, it will be a rare day that Michelle and he are in the same town together.
Anyone else getting this message from the link? Or is it just me?
Thanks! Sorry, “yoe” - I should have read the whole thread before responding.
He´s probably going to go home to Indonesia and present himself for Secy Genl of the UN from Indonesia (a member of teh Security Council, such as the US, cannot present a Secy Genl).
Aside from that, I notice the reporter is named Malia Zimmerman. I think one of Bambi´s daughters is named Malia, a rather weird name that I thought was supposed to sound sort of African. Is this a Hawaiian thing, or is there some leftwing heroine named Malia that they name their kids after?
Thanks for a great morning laugh. We copied the url and sent it along to all our contacts through e mail.
Moochele wants a little "private time" with her new boyfriend, the Secret Service agent.
Kings and Dictators spend this kind of money on themselves not Presidents because Presidents are answerable to The People.
Can’t wait for 2012 election.
Navy SEALS? Since when do Navy SEALS provide presidential security? You'd never see a Special Forces guy doing that! Especially with the current denizen of the WH.
/ gratuitous barb against any SEALs
they should take AMTRAK to go stay with Willie Green.
Yes, they’re sticking it to the ones they hate.
Hey, Bamma OOP has every right to celebrate Christmas. Oops I guess I wasn’t supposed to refer to Christmas since What’s his name is a federal employee.
I imagine the rates at Christmas time are exorbitant.
They always said one of the reasons that the press hated W was that they would much rather travel to Martha's Vinyard than Crawford.
Americans feel the pinch.
I know I take fewer holidays, and shorter ones. I end up taking a vacation closer to home ... or just staying home.
They are out of touch.
