Obama hits gym, watches movie, golfs in Hawaii
Associated Press ^ | Dec.31, 2009

Posted on 12/31/2009 6:58:40 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

KANEOHE BAY, Hawaii (AP) - President Barack Obama went golfing on New Year's Eve. The president hit the links at Mid-Pacific Country Club in the same Honolulu suburb of Kailua where he's renting a beachfront home for the holidays.

Obama earlier went to Windward Mall in Kaneohe to see a 3-D version of the movie "Avatar" with his daughters and family friends.

They enjoyed a special screening of the movie and had a theater to themselves before regular showings began for the day.

The world is going to hell in a hand basket and Obama is resting from his non-decision making day-to-day life in the White House. Party animal on the taxpayer’s dime, welfare queen with the highest credentials. IMHO

an interesting picture of fiddling while Rome burned.

last night on the History Channel, they were psycho analyzing Nero. Nero's early years, his arrogant strutting, egocentric behavior and more, were clearly Obama-like.

Wonder if the King will go to visit Rush.

By-the-way, what was Rush thinking to vacation on the same turf as The Won. Hoping for personal charm to win an interview?

I bet the locals are ready for him to be gone. Tying up traffic, blocked off streets, etc., etc. He should be spending some time looking for that birth certificate while he’s over there.

Yes. Certainly. It would be so easy for them to build a Potemkin Obama holed up in the WH, sharing the pain, working on protecting the country. A serious guy. The media would play right along.

His joy riding around the world on AF1, the parties and the vacations are great for our side. But I still don't get it. They must see what this is doing to him. Is he out of control and can't be stopped? Or do his handlers have a motive for letting him self-destruct?

if the crews on cruise line ships can work 7 days a week fro 7 months straight, while only being paid about $30k/yr, i think this slack ass wannabee can do at least 12

Golf, swimming, ice cream, movies and teleprompter break.
Lounging, reading, more golf, mall visits and teleprompter break. Leave the guy alone—he’s busy and needs rest to save the planet!

Why? I hear it's very anti-American. Sounds right up the Obamas' street.

So do you think he paid admission for himself and his friends when he went to the movies?

Do we get to know exactly who these friends and family members are?

When he travels there is such an entourage you’d think none of his friends had ever had a free trip to Hawaii or to Europe.

My problem is that he could have gotten a copy to watch in the WH or somewhere else, yet he takes over a whole theater, excluding all those waiting in line outside. Asshat in the first degree. Good to be the King.

I still can’t get over that he never went to church on Christmas. That has to be a first for presidents.

He claims he doesn’t want to disrupt other churchgoers.

He doesn’t mind disrupting people in Hawaii, Cape Cod or London and scaring the heck out of people in Manhattan.

Makes me sick to be defending Zero... but, the article does say, they went to the theater BEFORE the regularly scheduled showings... so, I would assume, there was no one waiting in lines outside.

I think he refers to them as his posse.

Really, there is no reason for him to be in Washington, he isn’t running the country anyway, it’s all Rahm and his other socialist handlers.

I realize you are being sarcastic, but does anyone except Chris Matthews think he is a great orator. I find his speeches very choppy and uninspiring. And that’s before I even consider the content.

But he will take over an entire theater to watch a movie, inconveniencing multitudes. Asshat.

He does okay with speeches, BUT I’m waiting for him to say anything extemporaneously that takes the breath. He’s way too calculated. Anyone can see that if they are objective.

He will become more and more disconnected as time goes on. It is a defense mechanism that keeps him from having to deal with the fact that he is in way over his head.

Pelosi is at the Four Seasons Hualalai on the Big Island, top dollar places for the party of the "little people".

Not much different from Michael Jackson,who had an entire toy store (FAO Schwartz,I believe it was) closed in order for him to shop there unmolested (pardon the pun).
Just another overrated celebutard who,unfortunately for us,was able to schmooze a jacked-up fan base into getting him elected president.
