Skip to comments.Another break for Obama Burton defends new vacation
Posted on 08/27/2009 12:01:35 PM PDT by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!
After a mid-August trip to America's national parks and a weeklong vacation on Martha's Vineyard, President Obama plans ...
... to take a little more time away from the office next week.
Obama will head to Camp David on Wednesday, September 2, and stay through the weekend, White House spokesman Bill Burton told reporters in a Thursday briefing.
Joking that it may have been "wishful thinking" to suggest Obama's current trip out of Washington would coincide with a news-free week, Burton quipped that the president needs a "break from his vacation."

Tweedle Dum has to twiddle his thumbs while his staff does the work writing new scripts for TOTUS.
“Joking that it may have been ‘wishful thinking’ to suggest Obama’s current trip out of Washington would coincide with a news-free week...”
When in fact it coincides with Ramadan! Funny, that...
I really think they think the 1000 SEIU/ACORN astroturf fake, bogus, town halls and KennedyCare allows the teleprompter to stop campaigning.
Maybe they spotted a trend that when he stops campaigning/teleprompting his poll numbers go up a few points.
all bammer does is RUN AWAY and HIDE that’s the bottom line.
His “vacation” is in reality a total disassociation from the duties of the office of POTUS.
He’s a damn runaway
Maybe the funeral will wear him out and take him off the golf course.
“As I recall, the previous president [took] quite a bit of vacation himself, and I don’t think anyone bemoaned that,” Burton said.”
Burton has go to be joking. We constantly heard complaints from the MSM about how much vacation Bush took.
That said, I’d like Obama to take as much vacation as he likes. The less governing he does, the better it is for America.
Sounds like Obama’s handlers have finally figured out what a terrible communicator he is, and have decided to keep him away from the teleprompter. He can spout campaign generalities, but he’s not capable of handling details. Unfortunately,(for him, not us) he doesn’t have a competent VP to back him up. That was another reason the left hated Cheney so much.
These left wing liars cried and whined when W spent time at his own home in Texas. But Prince Wee Wee can go all the country and spend, spend, spend and it’s just fine with them.
God I hate liberals.
He is probably celebrating Ramadan. Another reason to keep press and photogs away. I am sure he’s discreet about it but gotta keep photos away.
"When you're president, you've always got that job," Burton said.
On Monday, Burton pointed to former President George W. Bush's vacation habits to defend scattered criticism of Obama's August schedule.
"As I recall, the previous president [took] quite a bit of vacation himself, and I don't think anyone bemoaned that," Burton said.
Unreal. They never stop playing partisan politics-EVER!
He is getting out of the public eye because they know people are sick of him. Won’t do him a damn bit of good with all of the nonsensical Kennedy flap that is going on 24/7.
....now Teds body is at 4th and vine, and we are all held captivated by the idiocy.
One leftist has the ability to sicken as well as another.
It was a bait and switch Alinsky tactic.... say it like you never said it, so therefore you never said it.
no surprise here folks... I suspect Obama will not do much of anything except relax and meditate for the next four weeks in honor of Ramadan....
Bush Vacationing in Crawford (his own home) August 2001-2008: "How can that lazy Frat boy take off from work when the world is in crises?!?!?!"
Hussein Vacationing in a richman’s estate on Martha's vineyard: “Oh, the poor man, he needs a rest after solving All the world's problems!"
Ramadan lasts a month
Teleprompters aren't reloaded with the new health care propaganda yet, so Obama told to lay low a while longer, till the Kennedy funeral, which will also be the launch of the health care offensive. What better time that when Media can use the funeral as an excuse for a days long bombardments of free health care campaigning while Obama stands on top of Kennedy's casket preaching how it was his dying wish to give All Americans commie care.
I would be happy if the Prez just went ahead and took a vacation for the rest of his term of office.
The holiest day of Ramadan is
Sept 15th this year?
What is the practice of this day, I wonder
I’ve been lookin for that pic. I had made an animated gif with flapping ears, but I lost the darn thing.This one will be perfect...
“Joking that it may have been “wishful thinking” to suggest Obama’s current trip out of Washington would coincide with a news-free week, Burton quipped that the president needs a “break from his vacation.”
Hope the Kennedys enjoy the joking and quipping the death in their family has brought forth from the White House.
The have family get togethers for feasting and thighing of small children I believe.
The Obamas have not been observing the fast, what with their excursions to famous ice cream parlors and such.
“I suspect Obama will not do much of anything except relax and meditate for the next four weeks in honor of Ramadan....”
He seems true to his previous statements...
George Soros is the real president anyway. Zero is just his figurehead.
Laylat al-Qadr (Arabic: لیلة القدر) (also known as Shab-e-Qadr), basically the Night of Decree or Night of Measures, is the anniversary of two very important dates in Islam that occurred in the month of Ramadan. It is the anniversary of the night Muslims believe the first verses of the Qur'an were revealed to the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Muslims believe also that this night is when their fate in the following year is decided and hence pray for God all night long and pray for mercy and salvation. This practice is called Ehyaa (basically meaning "revival").
They are not Muslims.
ObamAlinsky will probably get another nudge up in the polls if he's seen blubbering at Kennedy's memorial service, or wherever it is he is supposed to set up his teleprompters (is that tacky or what, having teleprompters at a funeral?). So maybe he should look for more funerals to crash and other places to go on vacation. He might get back up to where he was in the polls just after inauguration, if all he does is vacation and go to funerals.
I am all for Obama taking as many vacations as possble
A 3.5 year long one would be perfect.
Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (itll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.
Yeah it was also reported that they had hamburgers last week.
Is he a cheating,practicing muslim?
0bama is taking all of this time off while the country burns??
Isn’t that what they said whenever Bush went to his ranch?
yep. This earth shattering, birth of Islam day begins with an illiterate epileptic, -who is in a cave practicing his pagan rock god worshiping ritual- being beat up and threatened by a scary "angel" and told to "read" an imaginary book.
The birth of Islam begins with a nonsensical [Qur'an 96:1]""Read in the name of your Lord who created man out of clots of congealed blood. Read, for your Lord is the most generous. He who taught the use of the pen that man might be taught that which he did not know."
Brilliant.The moment of moments: the birth of Islam. An unnamed spirit, representing an unidentified entity, reveals itself to Muhammad, and all we get is this.
Why would an all-knowing deity ask an illiterate man to read? Why does the spirit tell us that man was created from blood clots when it’s not true? If this spirit “taught by the pen what men did not know,” where are those words? And why digress to an oral recital when written testimony is superior? Why gloat, saying he’s generous - in what way and to whom? But the real question is: if this spirit “taught by the pen what men did not know,” where are those words?
No surprise the chickenshit lying jive turkey, is hiding.
Burton quipped that the president needs a "break from his vacation."Hardy har-har. Moron.
Gee, I never realized that being a marxist tyrant was such hard work!
Have to take the token shot at President George W Bush to excuse their incompetence. GW could have stayed at Crawford for a year w/the $$ its costing us to house them in Marxist Vineyard.
Pray for America
He's not honoring anything. He's just being a shiftless lazy SOB which is par for the course for Obama. Liesurely is Obama personal adverb.
Lets noty forget, with Cogress on vacation, Obama can’t shift the blame for anthing that happens while he’s still there himself. That’s why he’s running away at least until Congress comes back to be able to run behind their skirts.
maybe he’s having a mid-life crisis? maybe he needs counseling from a panel of health experts? maybe he thinks this is europe where it is ok to take a vacation for weeks and weeks and slack off the rest of the year?
They could have put Rodney King in the WH to lipsinc the part for what we are getting out of this act by “0 and the Dems”.
why take a vacation for ramadan when you’re not going to fast?
hey look. We LIKE the fact obama’s on vacation. It’s the left that’s ticked off he’s just relaxing while his obamacare is left to rot.
That idiot gap-toothed Burton is a lying lunatic...first, George W didn't take a 10th as many vacations as obama has...and secondly, the media bitched about those he did take constantly!!!
