Politically charged atmosphere makes it harder for presidents on vacation (DO NOT DISTURB!)
Washington Post ^ | January 2, 2010 | Anne Kornblut

Posted on 01/01/2010 6:13:40 PM PST by maggief

KAILUA, HAWAII -- Before heading to a luau on Wednesday, President Obama did something much more somber, his aides said: He called CIA Director Leon Panetta to discuss the deaths of seven agency officers in a suicide attack in Afghanistan.

Hey Leon, sorry about those folks.
Now, gotta go get a bite to eat....

How dare folks do things like become victims of terror and disturb obama’s vacation.

I’m sure Pres. Bush appreciated the Post’s concern when Cindy Sheehan and the smelly peace freaks were stalking him at his ranch in Crawford.

They are a bunch of lying hypocrites.

Good Grief, a LUAU?

hahahahaha

The lefties started this. Interesting though that they suddenly have no problem with the President taking vacations during crises these days.

Spinning and puttering.

Obama has managed to play golf and do other vacation-related activities in Hawaii, but aides also have stressed his involvement in conference calls with advisers and officials, and in decision making.

obamination is responsible for those deaths. Muzzie pigs know that this president doesn’t give a damn how many lives they take as long as we give them their “rights”. His weakness breeds contempt from them.

Harry Truman had The Buck Stops Here for a motto. The lizard king has the motto, The Buck Stops Here Only if it Helps My Polling Numbers or Promotes the Socialistic Agenda. If it doesnt the Buck Passes onto the Republicans and stops with them.

Where’s Cindy “the bitch in the ditch” Sheehan when we need her. She could’ve been Barry’s “snake in the sandtrap”. Perhaps she was afraid caddy Pelosi would beat her with a club. /sarcasm

You’ve completely missed the point.
Some of us have been waiting for him to throw a traditonal Hawaiian Luau.
Why? The raosting of a pig.
Why is that important?
To see if he dined on pork.

What the h*** did Obama think the job of POTUS was all about?!! In the next version of a republic, we need laws that prevent people who are so clueless from even running from office. If you don’t even know what the job requirements are, you don’t get considered.

Maybe we should buy a few acres down the road and set up “Camp Freedom”, where we can have speakers on traditional American values and philosophy.

Think the press will mob us and broadcast it?

When you become President, you DO give up your life. As the leader of the most powerful and influential country, you take time off when you can, but if there is business...YOU DAMN WELL DO IT.

Your vacation takes precedence over NOTHING. You work for the American people. We are realistic enough to recognize that people need downtime, but as the President, your FIRST option isn’t DOWNTIME.

YOU RAN for office. Nobody forced you.

When our solders went to fight in WWII, some of them didn’t have a real vacation for years. Some joined in 1941 and didn’t see their families again until after the end of the war, and many never saw their loved ones again, ever.

This POS in the White House needs to buy a pair to strap on.

Got this in email today:

"YOU MAY BE A MUZZIE IF..."


1. You refine heroin for a living, but you have a moral objection to liquor.
2. You own a $3,000 machine gun and $5,000 rocket launcher, but you can't afford shoes.
3. You have more wives than teeth.
4. You wipe your butt with your bare hand, but consider bacon "unclean."
5. You think vests come in two styles: bullet-proof and suicide.
6. You can't think of anyone you haven't declared Jihad against.
7. You consider television dangerous, but routinely carry explosives in your clothing.
8. You were amazed to discover that cell phones have uses other than setting off roadside bombs.
9. You have nothing against women and think every man should own at least four.
10. You've always had a crush on your neighbor's goat.

You are right, I forgot about the PORK! LOL!

However, most Luaus are served buffet style, which means he could go for the Lomi-Lomi Salmon and keep within Halal standards for the evening.

I actually saw FULLY veiled Muslims eating at our favorite CHINESE Buffet once!

I almost choked on my Spare Ribs! hee hee

LOL. I guess they’ll eat most anything if they think nobody’s looking.

Actually, we wanted him to host a Traditional Luau, for the purpose of seeing if he would have a pig roasted and if he would partake in the eating of the said raosted pig. This far, a big ZERO. Interesting, huh?

Were he to only eat the Lomi-Lomi Salmon, that too, would be very telling, right?

"Yikes on the one in RED FONT. "

Yeah, I hear you.

When I was in the USAF a friend of mine often had to go to Libya for TDA (temporary duty assignment), while he was there he found out that when someone is caught down there for stealing, they cut off his right hand...post fecal cleaning was done traditionally with the left hand; this had a double meaning, as no one would ever shake hands with him again because they knew that he did "everything" with that one remaining hand.

Oh, and washing up afterwards consisted of putting your hands in the sand and "washing" with the sand...no soap, no water.

And our left worships these people?

Indeed.

However the true test of whether or not he was born there would be if he ate the purple wallpaper paste they call poi.

ONLY REAL Hawaiians eat that stuff. ha ha ha

Shudder, shudder and shuddering some more.

There *is* an alert posted by Cindy that went out to Detriot beauty supply outlets to be on the look out for “hairdressers with missing fingers.” LOL.

I kid you not.

It has to do with people trying to buy beauty supplies in bulk that care used in bombs, like the Denver terrorist wanted to to in NYC recently.
