Camp David: Barack Obama becoming camper in chief

Camp David's woodsy confines lure him to 10th visit

WASHINGTON - -- Why hasn't President Barack Obama kept his pledge to make Chicago's South Side his "Kennebunkport"?

Two words: Camp David.

The ultra-private, presidential mountain retreat -- a half-hour from the White House by helicopter -- has quickly found fans within the First Family. Their stay for Labor Day weekend was Obama's 10th visit....

...With Obama's return Sunday, he has logged all or part of 26 days at Camp David, White House officials say.

Every day he’s on vacation is a day he isn’t destroying the country.

Perhaps its the dress code. Michelle does not style well.

Hey, I don’t really blame them. Living in the dirt of the city of Chicago or a resort? Not really a tough call. Yet, it’s clear that they can’t live the life they advocate for us. They want all the goodies but want to force us to live in enclaves like bit cities.

The Obambas should camp out in a tent.

Come on. He's got a Blackberry directly in contact with all the other elites. Do you ever think this marxist is on vacation.

Well when he's not campaigning, he's goofing off.

This guy had better get to work doing the "People's Business" instead of undermining them and the Constitution at every turn!!!

It’s almost like The Won is afraid to actually stay at the White House. His campaigning has never stopped, he’s always out and about on our dime. How many nights has he spent in the White House vs. being on the road?

For the good of the nation, BO should take the next 3 1/2 years off.

Anyone catch the segment on Chris Wallace’s Sun. show honoring the W.H. photographer? I hope someone will post the pic of BO and his mate nuzzling each other, while the Secret Service men look down at their shoes while throwing up a little in the back of their throats. Priceless.

No doubt the NYT, Washington ComPost, et al will wring their hands and hector Obama incessantly for his excessive vacationing.

Many times I have looked at that photo and wondered what the hell they were thinking. Even if that photo op occured when BO was a Senator, their traveling like that is very disrespectful to their government positions.

They know they will be photographed, yet dress like that for travels on a taxpayer funded aircraft. As you pointed out, class and decorum is beyond their grasp.

After looking at that photo I have to look at this one to remind me what is just around the corner:

I have no idea why the first lady dresses that way in public

He is supposed to be the Chief Executive of our Govt, but never is in the office and can’t have much time to study or communicate. I guess that is good..less damage. He really is turning out to be the empty suit with a great voice.

The Obama media will assure you that The King is on the job 27/7, regardless of where his physical body happens to be.

That is the same media that told us the Bush was goofing off on the taxpayer’s dime whenever he went to his ranch in Texas.

It seems Republicans are the only party who can fathom a concept of respect for their office and what it represents.

I cringed when I saw photos of the "beer party" with Obama walking ahead of the police officer and the professor. W would have never left them to "fend for themselves"......because if nothing else....he is gracious and well-mannered.

I can guarantee they are not "my betters". Even with my dismal knowledge of politics.....I could have done a more excellent job of being president or first-lady.... due to the fact I can read/understand the Constitution and respect the office of the Presidency. :0)

""The daughters were brought up in Chicago, and now they have the freedom to run and see the squirrels, see the deer, see the rabbits," Freeze said. "What kid wouldn't enjoy that? What adult wouldn't enjoy that?"

Right!!! It's our duty to pledge that Obozo & his family should have all the comforts available to mankind.

In the meantime, he's doing his best to make sure that the rest of us daily lose more of our freedom to live & enjoy our lives in the way we choose for ourselves & our children.

The Chosen One, Tovarisch Dunham, has progressed beyond South Chicago and has become accustomed to having access to his country dacha, i.e. Camp David.

Thank God he hasn't. It's a real pain in the butt to have him in this neighborhood.
