I’ve been thinking the same thoughts. Such a bunch of “bull.” Can you just imagine what the press would have said if Bush acted like Obama?

Well they are planning on going on vacation again with the girls for spring break—that might help him get caught up on his rest. I read that somewhere last week in an article about Michelle.

“Anyone miss George W. Bush yet???”

I said people would in six months. I was wrong.
It’ll be less than that.

This story is amazing. It’s as if Obama is literally coming unhinged after less than 2 months in office. He’s tired! Wahh. He has to work too hard. Waaah.

All the over-butted first lady had to do was to go downstairs and ask the head of the permanent staff what arrangements are customary for a visiting head of state.

Obama is like a very inexperianced rookie trying to pitch in game 6 of the World Series.

A at a very critical time in American history.

It is the first inning and he is getting hit hard. and we have nobody in the bullpen.

It is going to have to get very very very ugly before the American people have a chance to send in somebody better to pitch in game 7.

Re: “Going to the gym, looking at himself in the mirror, playing basketball, and partying every Wednesday night sure can wear a person out”

Yeah — when I was 20, a million years ago, I was always tired — of course I was out six out of seven nights a week partying but it did cause me to fall asleep at my desk at work frequently. Happily my boss enjoyed living vicariously through my stories so I kept he job.

Bambi had better figure out a way to handle his new job or he’s not gonna have it for long (I hope, I hope, I hope!!!)

Maybe ZERO will be TOO EXHAUSTED and TO OVERSTUFFED WITH WAGYU BEEF, Caviar, Lobsters and Champaigne, Booze and Cocaine to react when the 2AM Nuclear Alarm Call comes in as Hillary pointed out so well. If HUSSEIN stiffed the Prime Minister of Our Closest Ally and Most Important Friend, then Why wont he tell the Keeper of The Nuclear Football to get LOST! because he is “Exhausted?”(pickled, smashed, depressed, whatever!)

“Maybe he should quit staying up all night at the lavish taxpayer funded parties he’s throwing.”

Obama’s got his priorities and they don't include serious stuff. All they want to do is party - at your expense of course ... .

That's TOTAL BS!! He used this same excuse when he was campaigning and forgot what he was saying. He said he was "too exhausted from campaigning." He lies so much that he forgets which excuse he used to get out of the last lie he told. He's not getting out of this one. He needs to be held accountable for his actions!

There is NO excuse for his behavior in this matter. He insulted the leader of a country that has stood with us throughout the years. They are our friends. He is pathetic and an embarrassment to America!

Impeach the bast*rd!

Man, that felt good! LOL!

The “special relationship” is a totally entrenched part ogf American diplomacy for hundreds of years. Our relationship with France, Britain, and Israel are special and different from all others.

No American President, except for Jimmy Carter and Israel, has ever question the special relationship between the US and Britain.

If they are so insignificant, why has Obama requested a special meeting with Elizabeth II, Queen of England?

Ah Yes! The Photo-Op. In the pretend presidency of BHO, appearances are everything. Let others do the work/

And the puppetteer pulling the strings on this moronic marionette is laughing all the way home.

We need to see a new iconic photo of Prez Obama slumped over his desk just like the classic one of LBJ.

Well, it's not over his desk, but throughout the campaign there were several pics showing Obama looking tired. Who'd guess this was typical, (we knew LOL!)

OMG, he’s a bigger lightweight than even we thought he was.

Guess working out out at the Marines’ facility didnt help build up his stamina any.

What a worthless jerk. He never managed so much as a 7-11, and the Sheeple thought he could handle THIS?

Okay, had to put a post up here- now i’m going to back to read the thread.

And to not air the dirty laundry publicly, ME-Chelle Mabelle will start helping out with some of the decisions. He’ll delegate some of the less important stuff (in his mind anyway) to her. Like national security en foreign relations.

I’m not putting anything past this clown at this point.

Boma just needs a little blow. He’ll be alright if he can just do a couple of lines....

That's been my prediction for sometime. In a moment of desperation, the line will be crossed, then all h$ll will break loose three or four weeks later (remember Noriega and his coke fueled insanity?).

I agree. Obama will continue to do whatever he wants. We don’t know, but there could be people around him trying to give him good advice. He is too much of a narcissist to listen. In order to take advice and listen to others, one must have humility and personal insight. Unfortunately for America, Obama has neither.

The benefit with Clinton is that he would rather abandon his leftist instincts than be disliked. So, he backed off on socialized medicine quickly (I realize he lost the Congress over it and wouldn’t have had a prayer passing it with the freshman class, but Obama would be so tone deaf as to push for it anyway) and moved quickly to seize credit for welfare reform.
