It’s like “The Jeffersons” on TV, except that Weezie had a lot more heart than Michele.

PHILIP ELLIOTT Associated Press Writer

January 3, 2010 | 11:12 a.m.

HONOLULU (AP) — President Barack Obama is spending part of his last day in Hawaii reading intelligence assessments and asking advisers about threats to the United States.

Obama and his family are set to leave for the mainland Sunday evening.

The 11-day trip to the state where he was born and grew up was not a complete break from work for the chief executive.

The president’s holiday vacation was delayed by a Senate vote on health care legislation, then interrupted — and, by all accounts, derailed — by the attempted Christmas Day bombing of a Northwest Airlines flight as it prepared to land in Detroit.

A “president” can make being president the easiest job in the world for 4 years.

Anyone else getting just a bit tired of all this super ultra expensive security, along with the pomp and fanfare afforded the president that would make renaissance European nobility blush? Somewhere along the way, the way we treat our elected officials went terribly wrong.

"the state where he was born"

They think by repeating it ad infinitum the masses will believe it.

Pray tell:

How many times did the press say "state where he was born" when one of our other presidents returned for a visit to the state where he really was born?

Nixon: California

Ford (ne King): Nebraska

Carter: Georgia

Reagan: Illinois

Bush 41: Massachusetts

Clinton: Arkansas

Bush 43: Connecticut

"...the state where he was born and grew up. "

You can always tell what someone is trying to hide, by the way they try to hide it.

This trip to Hawaii has doubled as an advertising campaign...well, perhaps "propaganda" campaign would be more descriptive.

Following the communist rule, "if you tell the same lie enough times, people will start to believe it", every story from the pineapple state has tried to reiterate that obama was "born" there...but you know what...liberally biased, human interest stories from a liberally biased news media does not constitute facts.

In addition to the millions he has already spent to hide his past, he is now using this extended bullsh*t photo opp to try and drive the nail home that he was born in Hawaii...no other proof, mind you, just the Associated Press...that's like beleiving Joe Isuzu.

Here's the bottom line...after eleven days on Oahu, if he really wanted to prove he was born there, why not used the powers of his office to locate his "birth doctor", and have a beer summit with him? Or even go back to the hospital where he was supposedly born to meet and greet the staff?

Better still, how about a big class reunion with ALL the folks he went to grade school and high school with...that'd be a treat for the public, wouldn't it?

But he did none of that, instead he played golf.

Wasting a minimum of $4,000 per day on his lodging alone, not to mention the thousands on staff, secret service, and associated personell food, transportation, and lodging; costing an already near bankrupt state until costs in police and emergency personnel, and costing islanders who make their living flying unknown thousands in profits.

I haven't read a whole lot about obama's history on the golf course, but then, that's probably "sealed" as well. He seems pretty obsessed with the game...obviously...that's about all he does.

It would sure be nice if all this expensive rest and relaxation spawned a billiant idea or a wise decision once in a while, but so far, it hasn't. A problem arises, he jets off to ponder it...eleven days later he returns with still no decision.

Eleven days in the sun and sand of Oahu, and the only cognitive thought to come out of him, is he thinks the underwear bomber might be connected to Al Queda...my cocker spaniel knew that the day the terrorist was caught.

And now, Hawaii is pondering between 4 or 5 options of what kind of state monument to build for him...if you can believe that. I say they should take down that big statue of King Humamhnahdmmahd (sp?) on Oahu, and replace it with one of little Barry and his kenyan daddy...that should make them happy.

Anyone who sees this clown other than the money-grubbing, America hating, race baiter he is, is stuck on stupid with no chance of escape.

I think he is mentally ill. How can one play golf everyday when we are at war.

Other than being dishonored and upset at all the wasted national treasure by the fraud, all the vacation gigs might be a lot of fun. < /sarcasm>

My sentiments exactly, Maggief. “The state where he was born and grew up”. Phooey. Also, there has been lots of shots of the “hospital where he was born”. Phooey again. Show me the birth certificate!

Well, they did - unfortunately - make a big deal about the bumbling Jimmy Carter being from Georgia.

I would love to know the total cost of this vacation, and how much of the bill we ended up paying. I know it must be obscene.

Please don’t come back. Step down and stay there or go back to Kenya.

Yeah, and El Rushbo actually stayed in one of the two hospitals that Barry was born in!

And that's even better than staying in a Holiday Inn Express! /sarc
