Barack Obama puts romantic meal with Michelle before Czech politicians
timesonline.co.uk ^ | April 4, 2009 | David Charter

Posted on 04/03/2009 3:36:28 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

The charms of a wonderful woman and a beautiful city are hard to beat.

So much so that Barack Obama will snub his hosts after arriving in Prague this evening in favour of a romantic Saturday night dinner with his wife, Michelle.

The Czech Republic is a stopover on the US President's first tour of Europe because it currently holds the presidency of the European Union, which rotates every six months.

But rather than meet the country's conservative leaders, with whom the President has little in common and who have been rather rude about the United States recently, the Obamas have decided to spend their only night in Prague soaking up the atmosphere.

“He requested a romantic dinner with a view of Prague, where they can eat the best Czech food,” said a Czech government source. “They have spent days trying to decide on the right restaurant.” ....

President Klaus is understood to have invited the Obamas to dinner at Prague Castle, while Mr Topolánek, his rival, offered to take Mr Obama out to a traditional Czech pub. ....

Much to their discomfiture, Mr Obama has decided to meet both of them at a breakfast meeting tomorrow morning, before the EU-US summit attended by leaders from the 27 EU countries. Later, Mr Obama plans to spend time with Václav Havel, the playwright who led the country out of communism and whom the US President greatly admires. He will probably get as much time as both of the current leaders put together.

I’ve been to Prague. It’s a wonderful city with wonderful people who know just how bad communism SUCKS. Mrs. Tick is of Czech heritage as well.

Personally, I hope they spit and put pubic hairs in the rat ba$tards’ food.

Flyover country indeed. Bambi and his beyotch should be ashamed of themselves.

Barry is just racking up a long list of social gaffes with international leaders. He's done the same with traditional visits to American organizations as well. I guess we shouldn't expect better from a thug off the streets of Chicago. The Kenyan embarrassment that infests our White House.

Gee, I’m sorry Mr. President. This is not a pleasure trip, second honeymoon or adventure. You are there to do the people’s business and it is only by the grace of the people that your wife is allowed to accompany you. Business is first and a dinner invitation from another country is your first priority. Regardless of how small or important the country is, you are our representative and we pay you to represent this country first, unfortunately, your family issues will have to be on the backburner for at least the next four years.

Mrs. al ‘0bama has had the president’s equipment in her purse since the day she met him. Occasionally he begs for visiting rights.

I would bet that he does this kind of thing because his fans on the left (most specifically the women) have been polled, and they think it’s neat that he would take Michelle out rather than meet with diplomats. This is calculated like that famous dance on the beach we all enjoyed so much.

0bama is dancing with his wife while the people of Fargo ND are fighting to save their home from flood waters.

President Bush was criticized for not going to New Orleans until a week after the disaster, but from what I can see, 0bama has no intention of visiting Fargo.

If he had a free evening, nothing would have been wrong with he and his wife going to dinner. However, if he is invited, by another country, to dinner, THAT is his first responsibility because that is why he is there. It has nothing to do with impeachment, it has to do with his lack of representation of this country.

Barack: I need to meet with these Czech dudes!

Michelle: Uh-uh! Don’t you think about running off doing no derrin’-do. We’ve been planning this dinner for two months!

Barack: The Global Economy is in danger!

Michelle: My evening’s in danger!

Barack: I’ve got to meet with the Czechs, woman! We are talking about the greater good!

Michelle: ‘Greater good?’ I am your wife! I’m the greatest good you are ever gonna get!

But Fargo isn’t very romantic, and the best restaurants were probably closed. Also there were probably no opportunities for good photo ops and if the power was out the teleprompter wouldn’t work. Besides, isn’t Fargo mostly white? Bambi doesn’t like white people.

Gee, I don’t know. Maybe it’s because he’s there on business and not pleasure. If he wants to have a romantic dinner with his wife let him go there on vacation and pay for it himself.

But you just go on and keep defending the indefensible. It’s what your good at.

This guy snubs everyone.

In fact, he snubs whites. He embraces non-whites, especially if they are left-wingers or outright communists. That's what 20 years in a racist, black liberation church does to your brain.

You’ve got to be sarcastic!

He is on a BUSINESS TRIP and this is his ONLY NIGHT in the country that currently holds the EU Presidency and he snubs them?

He has plenty of time to wine and dine Sasquatch. He needs to attend to business on this trip.

But they are anti-Communist and pretty Conservative so he wants nothing to do with them. He’d rather grovel and bow to the Saudi King and watch Sasquatch shovel food into her big misshapen mouth.

What a tool!

The "Black Liberation" movement has no problems with whites. That is, whites like Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn and Father Michael Pfleger, aka the "Eminem of Black Liberation Theology".
