Barack Obama ends Hawaii holiday looking tired [boo hoo.........]
Telegraph ^

Posted on 01/01/2010 1:35:21 PM PST by Sub-Driver

Barack Obama ends Hawaii holiday looking tired President Barack Obama appeared far from refreshed towards the end of his winter break in Hawaii but his daughters enjoyed trying out a surf board.

Published: 8:18PM GMT 01 Jan 2010

His care-free children Sasha and Malia were spotted smiling and playing with friends as they took to the water.

But in sharp contrast, Mr Obama looked weary, as if the repeated interruptions to his family holiday had taken their toll.

He has had to address criticism over national security after it appeared that a lack of communication between government agencies allowed the Nigerian syringe bomber Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab to attempt to blow up an airliner as it prepared to land in Detroit.

He also faced the grim news that seven CIA operatives had been killed in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan.

An aide insisted the 48-year-old US president had found his holiday "rejuvenating", and Mr Obama managed to spend five hours on the golf course on New Year's Eve and take his family to see the film Avatar.

But his greying hair and drawn look in a photograph taken on Thursday seemed light years away from his bright-eyed appearance at his inauguration less than a year ago.

He needs to head back the oval office so he can get some sleep.

Things are beginning to dawn on him that he has destroyed much of the America that he has to live with.

Maybe he needs to take a long vacation after he gets back .. or better yet, just stay there, Barry.

we would be glad to give him his old job back, if this one isn’t as cool as he thought it would be. or perhaps even the job before that.

Given barack never had a hard job in his life and ends up taking the hardest one in the world (unfortunately with our lives, both physical and economic at risk) he’s “tired”. Just wait, you lightweight phoney, it’s going to get real hard and we’re the ones that will be taking the punches. What a dreamin’ fool and worse, the portion of the american public that is either infantile or dependent on government handouts voted this twit in for four years. God help us.

I guess being president is not as easy as being a community organizer.

Paging Michael Moore, Paging Michael Moore.. I seem to recall this was a big deal for you several years ago.. at least the President he complained about actually worked on his vacation instead of whining like a little two year old he was interrupted from his nappy time.

Now he has to go back to the endlessly tiring job of flying around the world and telling everyone how much of a flawed country America is. How we make mistakes, that we’re not perfect, and other countries have a legitimate reason to criticize us.

Someone forgot to mention to the Child King that the job of POTUS sucks the life out of the men who have held it in the past, compare GWB in 2000 to GWB in 2009.

And this is merely Yr 1.

Courage their Caeser.

Obama is failing because he has no understanding of the American people, and may indeed loathe them.

Penn STATE may have beaten LSU, but Penn would have a hard time with the Louisiana State High School champ. (Penn (Wharton)-Class of 1982). We used to wear t-shirts that said “Not Penn State”.

I’d rather have Juan as president, he’s a lib but at least he’s usually intellectually honest.

Better Juan than BO.

Behold the cup handle schnozz! A few more photos like that and his popularity with the young and stupid will vanish.
And he never was popular with any others.

I thought he was the Black Kennedy, the most energetic President in US history...oh, wait, JFK spent half his Presidency on his back from Addisons and a Prescription drug habit (and the other half putting women on their back),.

“..no understanding of the American people...”

Nailed it, Obama has no empathy skills...none...he is a bit like a Mortician crossed with a Ivy League College Professor.

What interruptions? Making a five minute statement? Obama looks like a tired old man. Maybe he’s realized being President isn’t like campaigning.

Weird angle. I looked at that picture for a long time and still cannot see obama. Then I started wondering if he took a page from dear leader's book and uses doubles.
(only 1/2 kidding)

BTW I am beginning to think the thrill is definitely gone for Juan Williams. (Lib that he is, he is a good man. I like him)

“Every time I see that picture, I ask myself what happened. It seems so long ago. I had such hopes. Why aren’t the trains running on time? Why are we having problems with the locals in Somalia again? Why don’t the other dictators respect us?”

“Obama is failing because he has no understanding of the American people, and may indeed loathe them.”

The feeling is indeed very, very mutual.
