CBS Frets Obama Must Work and So Can’t ‘Recharge His Batteries’ During Hawaii Vacation
Newsbusters ^ | January 1, 2010 | Brent Baker

Posted on 01/01/2010 11:38:44 AM PST by maggief

The failures that allowed the unsuccessful Christmas Day terrorist attack have marred President Barack Obama’s relaxation schedule in Hawaii, CBS’s Jeff Glor and Chip Reid regretted Thursday night as Reid fretted Obama had “hoped to spend this vacation recharging his batteries, but now he appears to be spending most of it working” and assured viewers Obama is moving fast to protect Americans: “The President has immersed himself in the details of the review and that individuals will be held accountable, but the top priority now is to make sure it doesn't happen again.”

Look at those skinny, wimpy-assed legs.

Meanwhile, when W took a vacation, the MSM berated him so badly that he didn’t take another so long as troops were engaged.

But!But!

I thought we elected Obama because he was young and vigorous? Right?
McCain was old and tired.

I thought Obama was supposed to be fresh, hip, and full of energy?

He's just so freaking ridiculous.
Those Marines must have been almost apoplectic,wanting to kick that ass and not being able to touch him.
If he had 1/1000th of a percent of the discipline these heroes had,he'd be an actual man.

Should have thought about that when he applied for the job. To bad nobody could read his resume before he got the job, or still is able to read it and other important documents for that matter

Obama appears to be constantly on vacation. How much paid annual leave do you Yanks authorize for your pResident to have? Maybe if you start docking his pay he will attend to his duties more diligently.

To be followed by yet ANOTHER VACATION AT THE TAX PAYERS EXPENSE, to recharge his overworked battery.

The most worthless POS ever to soil the Whitehouse.

In the famous words of Warren Zevon, Obama can sleep when he's dead.

Until then, he can mainline caffeine like the rest of us. ;o)

The shark isn't chasing him. It just SPIT HIM OUT!

As we all know, sharks are MAN eaters. No self-respecting shark would stoop to eat this limp-wristed, narcissistic, effete metro sexual. That he was later attacked and eaten by CARP went unreported by the lamestream media.

“Meanwhile, when W took a vacation, the MSM berated him so badly that he didn’t take another so long as troops were engaged.”

And his dad was likewise berated for vacationing in Maine in 1990 in a much milder recession.

BTW, a more accurate description of the media is “Corrupt Liberal Media” (CLM) instead of the MSM.

There is nothing “mainstream” about the media. They are hard left ideologues who have corrupted the profession of journalism.

Actually I think we're better off with him on vacation. Just wish our Congress would take off as much time as he does.

Not to worry CBS. The Washington Post has this in their article....................
“Senior administration officials said that Obama at no point considered cutting short his trip to attend to matters on the mainland, and they could not deny that Obama still had plenty of fun despite the unexpected crises”

See HE HAD PLENTY OF FUN...........DESPITE unexpected crises!1!!!!!!!!!!!!
