......Obama has raised the possibility that he might remain a resident of the capital after his lease on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. expires in January 2017.
In an interview this week with Barbara Walters of ABC News, Obama and the first lady, Michelle, said they may live in Washington beyond their time in the White House to allow their younger daughter, Sasha, to graduate from Sidwell Friends School.

How about Leavenworth?
.....so he'd fit right in!
Like hell I'd let my kid decide....
Wish they would have “listened” to Sasha from the beginning...
The way she looked at the Turkey Pardoning (no, not her dad), she didn’t appear to be thrilled with the whole gig...back to Chi-town with you all....!
Good. The next attorney general won’t have far to look to execute an arrest warrant.
Heh, the little Obama off spring went to a private school in Chicago before Sidwell...
What’s good for me is not for thee.....
It’s because of his third term.
If he does this, it is because he WILL break the understanding that ex-presidents have to give the new president a bit of room to operate.
One of the cornerstones of the early success political of our system was the British tradition of good sportsmanship above all when your party loses, with the understanding that you will be allowed to prepare to fight another day. When one side violates this precept, the other side is forced to as well. Deterioration of the political system and the society ensues.
This is the first move to gauge interest in not stepping down was president. Manufacture a crisis, to the point of suspending the election.
“Well, he was going to remain in Washington anyway. We’ll just let him stay until the crisis is over.”
I’m a Brat too, but I only managed 8 schools...
Obama will never be an ex-president—his goal is President for life.
Who says he will be an ex-president?
I don’t care where he goes as long as it’s not to the Supreme Court.
He doesn’t plan on leaving the White House. After living there what would be good enough for them?
That's a good place for them to stay, following the trial and conviction of Traitorobama and his regime, while the gallows are being readied for carrying out the sentence.
LOL! Either one.
I agree. Like you I attended 12 different schools before graduating - and I wouldn’t give that experience up for anything. I also went to schools in FL and England; also, SC, MA, AL before graduating from HS in CA. I have a “Proud Air Force Brat” bumper sticker on the back of my 4Runner and am constantly getting a thumbs up from other drivers. This magic duo made NO sacrifices to get to where they are - and it’s makes me sick on my stomach every day to think that our military is out there defending these two POS!
Well, in chi-town, she may end up shot because nobody has guns in chi-town or, she may end up “punished” with a child out of wedlock.
Let’s see. Florida, Virginia x2, California x2, Hawaii x2, Pennsylvania, England x2, New Mexico x2. I think that’s 12. LOL!
Thats because the POS has always fed at the bureaucratic trough.
His next gig, for which he is also ineligible, will be Secretary-General of the United Nations, which he will bootstrap into being King of the World.
Make that 10 schools, I forgot a couple...
LOL! Well his qualifications are finally ones that we know about due his tenure as the “lyin’ king”. Maybe he can become the king of the Grand Dutchy of Fenwick.
Good, DC is the perfect place for Obama to stay. May his Secret Service team abandon him, and a flash mob abuse him.
I predict Obama will go wherever he can enjoy a gay lifestyle and godlike adoration from mindless worshipers, including the media.
Only in his imagination. We're the only people of the world dumb enough to elect him into any position of power. The other nations see him for the putz that he is.
Maybe a knockout game for the white half? (Although I hear that this knockout thing is just a myth.)
ADX Florence would be better.
LOL If something else comes along that strikes these looney’s fancy(free ride) what Sasha wants isn’t going to matter. What Sasha wants probably doesn’t really matter now.
The people of the world don’t appoint the UN Secratary-General. The ruling-class elite do.
Beltway society is Nirvana for a person like Obama. He will spend the rest of his life living in taxpayer funded luxury as he works to tear down the country that gave him a royal life.
It's hard to find out if they have boarders at the school. It doesn't look like it (and, gee, is it expensive). But Nixon's daughters went there when he was living in New York, so some kind of arrangement may be possible.
Presidents leave Washington so that Washington will miss them. If they just hung around the city, DC would get very sick of them. Making oneself scarce for a while means people will make a big deal over you when you come back.
Is the guy who just wants to play golf all day secret planning a coup? Doubtful. The perks retired presidents have are substantial and beat having to always look over your shoulder waiting to be deposed or done away with.
He probably has his eye open for a Supreme Court seat. A lifetime of Barry! Just think of it.
Precisely my point. Can you see Putin or Merkel or Xi Jinping picking Obama?
So he's planning on Hillary and a big fat recipricol appointment.
Mine was FL x 2, AL x 3, England, MA, SC x 2, CA; but when I add in the times we moved from off-base housing to on-base housing and had to change schools because of that, then it adds up to 12. But I loved it!!!!
There must be alot of gay bath houses in DC for Barry to visit once he is out of office.
Really, they don't have any job skills.........They'll remain in Washington and collect the freebies and paybacks from all the libtards who profited from his presidency.
Life will be very good for them in Washington......
LOL! Uh, I have no clue as to the amount of these establishments in the area. Maybe he could get some recommendation from bawney fwank.
Do they even have a maximum security prison in DC for death row inmates?
If a Republican is elected president, Zero will set up a shadow presidency just down the street. The media and elitists will ignore the GOP guy and treat Zero like he’s still president.
If a Democrat is elected president, Zero will keep him/her on a tight leash.
Think Carter and Clinton didn’t retire gracefully, wait until you get a load of The Won.
Might be awkward if he moved back to Kenya.
Not to mention the quadrillions he’ll get for speaking engagements. He’s so............. I don’t know, brilliant? NOT!
I think Obama is going to be in for a big surprise when he finds out after he leaves office...without the power of the executive office lording over us mere peons. ..he will be a toothless tiger....scorned by many and illrevant to anybody but his sycophants and Obots drones...
DC may be the only place he can live where just about everyone is getting some kind of exemption or subsidy to insulate them from the damage the ACA is going to do to their standard of living. Before this is over with he’ll have pissed off just about everyone outside the beltway.
.......easy to do when you have no plans to leave the White House.
