President Barack Obama began his last day in Hawaii with his typical morning workout and a trip to Sea Life Park.

Obama spent about an hour at Waimanalo marine park, where aides said he was visiting with his daughters and other family and friends. Spotted with the president's party were his sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, and her husband.

Vacationing President Obama sees some dolphins

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/dcnow/2010/01/the-president-sees-some-dolphins.html

After a frantic few days of dealing with terrorism threats and national security issues, President Obama took some time today for a bit more vacation fun. He and his two daughters drove about 20 minutes to Sea Life Park, a marine park in the seaside town of Waimanolo. The park's website says it's the place to swim with dolphins, hug sea lions and see other sea creatures, including sea turtles and penguins.

Too bad the dolphins weren’t Conservative, America-loving mammals with “LASERS” attached to their backs.

You know, I have one simple request. And that is to have sharks with frickin’ laser beams attached to their heads! Now evidently my cycloptic colleague informs me that that cannot be done. Ah, would you remind me what I pay you people for, honestly? Throw me a bone here! What do we have?;)

For a guy who brags about his date nights, he sure doesn’t seem to spend much vacation time either just with his wife or just with his wife and kids. Seems like working out, golf and basketball are balanced on the other end by the joint outings with his Chicago-thug friends and their families.

Looks like he’s heading home a day or two early. Too many security leaks? Guess his puppet masters need him back in DC in front of the camera. SPIN control!

Ain’t that the truth?

So - it sounds like obama’s sister and her family were there, along with how many friends and other family members...I’m assuming we’re all footing the bill for this latest obama vacation extravaganza.

Ok, so he forks over (courtesy of my tax dollars) $30 a ticket and stays only one hour??? That totally ticks me off. I buy his freakin’ ticket and it’s a slap in the face to stay one hour. How many tourists were told they couldn’t go in because of security? What an arrogant....

“”where aides said he was visiting with his daughters and
other family and friends.””

What a weird place to go to visit with your daughters and friends! Think maybe a remedial course in journalism is in order?????

FWIW (AP):

http://www.kitv.com/news/22110261/detail.html

The Obama family and friends had the park mostly to themselves during their visit because it hadn’t opened yet.

They left the park before the gates opened for a small crowd of people waiting to get in.

When their motorcade returned to the vacation home in Kailua, they were greeted by a group of protesters calling themselves “disaffected Democrats.”

They waved signs saying “we love you” and “support the public option.”

Oh wow! Flying back ahead of schedule? !!!!!

I wonder whether it has anything to do with this and Brennan's scheduled TV appearnaces on The Sunday Shows tomorrow.

Saudis briefed top Obama official about “underwear bombers” in October. = The briefing to Brennan was delivered at the White House by Muhammad bin Nayef, Saudi Arabia’s chief counterterrorism official.

Notice how the MSM makes a point in these articles. hadn’t opened yet. The beach was CLOSED NORMALY ON TUES. Early in the day for the movie when no one goes to see movies.

Guilt? Yes I know it is MSM they have none.

Protest signs saying they love him??? Maybe disaffected and confused RATS.

Ah, they were at the park before it opened. Ok, so maybe that saved some of our tax dollars on tickets. Still the whole vacation (this one, the last one, the one before that, the 15 before that, etc.... fine, this entire year) has ticked me off.

Hmmm, I don’t recall any past pres taking such a sizeable posse/entourage with him everywhere he went. I’m not talking about SS or staff......I’m taking about leeches.

Oh for God's sake.
We almost lost at least 300 people in a failed terrorist attack on a jet landing in Detroit.
We did lose 7 CIA agents and 1 private contractor

Meanwhile, Obozo the Chicago Clown is playing with Flipper and eating sno-cones.

Someone needs to tell him in a very public way to get his lazy, fat ass back to DC to do some actual work protecting this country.

From the article:

“The first family is scheduled to leave Hawaii tomorrow.”

http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2009/12/31/politics/politicalhotsheet/entry6042788.shtml

The Obama family, which reportedly attended the screening with friends, is expected to be in Hawaii through Monday.

............................

And, the lastest from pool reporter, cornbutt. “EXPECTED?”

Star Bulletin

His son, Joseph R. Farrington, succeeded him as president and was general manager. Joseph Farrington was elected as Hawaii’s delegate to Congress in November 1942, and was re-elected continuously until he died of a heart attack June 19, 1954.

Under the Farringtons’ guidance, the Star-Bulletin was said to have a “liberalizing” effect on “the conservative, closed oligarchy of Hawaii.”

Management of the Star-Bulletin shifted to the mainland when the Gannett Corp. bought it in August 1971.

David Black, president of Victoria, British Columbia-based Black Press Ltd. purchased the Star Bulletin on March 15, 2001

As usual, being typical public school graduates, they can't spell.

They had just undergone a series of full body antiseptic, fungicide and pesticide dips to rid them of skin rashes, head lice, crabs and fleas.

They meant to say "disinfected democrats"

Okay, I should have read the entire article instead of letting my rage get the best of me. He is getting his lazy, fat ass back to DC a little early.

But he is still making time to play with Flipper.

Ack, I am sorry to tell you this, but I read that Rush isn’t returning until Wednesday, but I haven’t checked his webpage to make certain.
