Obama may be a rare ex-president who stays in Washington
Washington Post ^ | 11/29/2013 | Scott Wilson

Posted on 11/30/2013 9:00:00 AM PST by rktman

......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.

I heard some of this yesterday and that moochelle stated that she and the "lyin' king" have sacrificed a lot so that he could become the ROTUS. Frickin' puhleeze. It might be hard for pricess sasha to change schools. Really? Since I was a mil-brat, I went to 12 different schools before i gradiated (good schooling huh?) from Florida to Hawaii to England and many places in between. I didn't turn out to be a nut case. (Well, at least in my eyes. LOL!) Arrogant POS' don't know the meaning of sacrifice. I'm sure there are plenty of others that have made the same sort of moves that I did as a kid and we appear to be okay. This pos and his pos firs' lady have burdened this country with sacrifice that will last a whole lot longer than just the end of his term. His next term should be carried out in Leavenworth.

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.

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.”

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!!!!

If he and his broad went back to Chicago, what would they do? They don't have law licenses any more and the only job the ho had was given her by a hospital due to hubby's senate seat.......

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......

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.

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.
