'Snowbama' time in Hawaii (Obama shows terrorist how to eat shaved ice)
AFP ^ | 1/2/2010 | AFP

Posted on 01/02/2010 5:33:19 AM PST by tobyhill

US President Barack Obama took a respite from the pile of grim news clouding his vacation, taking a group of friends and their kids for a chill Hawaii delicacy -- shave ice.

At a shave-ice store near his vacation rental, Obama on Friday picked one of the concotions, made of ice and fruit syrup and known as the "Snowbama" in his honor -- flavored with lemon-lime, cherry, and passion guava.

"That is the Snowbama," the president said, when reporters questioned his choice of treat, after he ordered the group 19 shave ice cones of various flavors.

Onlookers cheered Obama, who was with daughters Malia and Sasha and friends and their children who have been sharing his vacation in his home state.

“Obama reassured the nation that this "suspect" had been charged. Reassurance? The
president should be saying: We have captured an enemy combatant -- an illegal
combatant under the laws of war: no uniform, direct attack on civilians -- and now to
prevent future attacks, he is being interrogated regarding information he may have about
al-Qaeda in Yemen.
Instead, Abdulmutallab is dispatched to some Detroit-area jail and immediately lawyered
up. At which point -- surprise! -- he stops talking.

This absurdity renders hollow Obama's declaration that "we will not rest until we find all
who were involved." Once we've given Abdulmutallab the right to remain silent, we have
gratuitously forfeited our right to find out from him precisely who else was involved,
namely those who trained, instructed, armed and sent him.

This is all quite mad even in Obama's terms. He sends 30,000 troops to fight terror
overseas, yet if any terrorists come to attack us here, they are magically transformed from
enemy into defendant.

The logic is perverse. If we find Abdulmutallab in an al-Qaeda training camp in Yemen,
where he is merely preparing for a terror attack, we snuff him out with a Predator -- no
judge, no jury, no qualms. But if we catch him in the United States in the very act of mass
murder, he instantly acquires protection not just from execution by drone but even from
interrogation. “

LOL.

This article has to be the most ridiculous I have seen in a while.

We have terrorist flying on our planes, CIA agents getting blown up, etc, and the media is fixated on Obama eating shave-ice.

The logic is perverse.

The election of Barack 0bama as POTUS has put America in the running for the Darwin Awards.

The real question is whether The 0ne is doing this intentionally or simply through the profound failure of his entire marxist-fairy-tale world view.

How many vacations has this stupid muzzie son of a whore had already in the last year?.

That is not to be confused with all of his partying at the White House, when he's not busy naming self admitted communists and tax cheats to administration posts.

You would think the first black POTUS would strive to act a bit less stereotypical, whats next, rocking on the White House porch with a can of grape soda in one hand and a watermelon in the other?

Obama ordered shave ice for the group, going up to the counter with a long list of orders on lined notebook paper folded in half.

Why is Obama still in Hawaii?

President Obama wants us all to know he’s taking seriously the attempted terrorist attack of Christmas Day and that his administration is doing all it can to ensure our safety. But his words would be a lot more convincing if not delivered during time snatched between rounds of golf, swimming and sunbathing. ...
... By staying in Hawaii, the president has sent the message that the situation really isn’t all that serious, that things can proceed just fine until he’s back. And isn’t it that kind of reasoning that emboldens our never-vacationing enemies into thinking Christmas Day is the perfect time for them to strike?

I have no idea. Obama has been on vacation since his inauguration but on occasion he shows up in Washington to sign $787 billion “stimulus” bills.

Let me tell you where I would have been and what I would have done:

1. Not been on vacation.

2. At Church to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

3. On a small plane to visit every family who lost a soldier in Afghanistan.

4. Ordering the complete destruction of muslim terrorists in Afghanistan and Yemen.

5. In the White House, in the Oval Office, in suit and tie (I wear bow ties) firing a cretin like Janet Incometano (whom I never would have appointed in the first place.

6. Acting like a President!

I believe they did cheer. Someone posted a video on youtube about obama looking for terrorists on the golf course. Sure enough there are ‘fans’ following him and cheering. These are the same people who follow hollywood stars around I imagine. People without a clue.

You would think the first black POTUS would strive to act a bit less stereotypical . . .

Other day I was talking to one of those loading dock Democrats who probably didn't vote for Clinton (at least didn't vote for him twice). I said Obama reminded me of somebody with nothing who hit the lottery and went on a spending spree. "No...no..." it's not that, he said, "You know what it is? I'll tell you what it is (and he said two words I haven't heard in 3 decades)!"

It’s ground up ice with some artificial flavoring on it that probably cost $3 bucks a piece, courtesy of the taxpayers.

His hopes for a rest have been disrupted by the attempt by a suspected Nigerian extremist to bring down a US airliner bound for Detroit last week.....His holiday was also jolted by the deaths of seven CIA employees at a forward operating base in Afghanistan.

May I suggest you quit you f'ing pussy! That way the slobbering up your @ss media can quit covering for your immature behavior and MAYBE do their job.
