The Obamas Go for Shave Ice in Hawaii
ABC News ^ | 1/2/2010 | Jon Garcia

Posted on 01/03/2010 4:02:07 PM PST by billorites

President Obama and his Hawaiian vacation party, fresh from watching Ohio State defeat Oregon in the Rose Bowl, took a late afternoon New Year's Day trip to Island Snow shave ice and clothing store--one of the Obama's favorite haunts in Kailua.

The large Obama tribe -- which included Malia, Sasha, family friends Marty Nesbitt and his family, Eric Whitaker and his family, island golfing buddies Greg Orme and Mike Ramos and others--ordered 19 shave ice cones in all the various flavors and colors of the rainbow, seven of them with ice cream on the bottom. There were so many orders, Obama had to consult a cheat sheet with all of them written down. First Lady Michelle Obama didn’t make the outing.

Asked if he was gonna add the traditional Japanese adzuki beans to his order, the president replied, "No. I like my shave ice straight. … No frills."

Obama's "snowbama" order included lemon-lime, cherry and passion guava flavors.

The president, who was sporting shades indoors and was clad in a plain tee shirt and shorts, commiserated with Oregon fan Orme and tried to cheer him up by saying Ohio State fan Nesbitt would pay for his shave ice cone.

Once outside, daughter Malia could be seen sampling her dad's concoction. Small but vocal crowds gathered in the parking lot of the tiny store to applaud and wave to the president. Mr. Obama waved back as he jumped back into his black SUV for the ride back to his vacation rental.

Glad the little girls get to have some “normal” time being kids.

That said, it seems the parents are on perpetual vacation while the American people are losing their jobs, homes and livlihood. It’s as if the Royal Obozo and his Omoo-moo are rubbing salt in our wounds. Why do they hate a country that has been so good to them?

Just be thankful that if they must report on the 0's eating habits it is done as the food is going in, and not as it is coming out.

All I know is we heard for about 2 weeks as the Senate "passed" his "bill".

He's so lazy he has everyone else "move" everything for him.

Zero's brother George is living in a shack on less than a dollar a month, which means that Zero spent more money on 19 orders of shaved ice today than his brother earns in a few years.

And just like that, Obama forces a winner to pay for a loser.

Bush was fond of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches,and he made his own sandwiches. Would this president require a staff for that?

Mark Twain, "Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court", right? The first court newspaper, I seem to recall (can't find my ancient copy of the book at the moment...)

That’s what I was wondering! Don’t his girls have to be back in school tomorrow like the rest of the country’s schools? Plus, doesn’t he have to be back at work?

This man takes more vacation in his first year than he has EARNED!

"First Lady Michelle Obama didn’t make the outing." I guess they want to imply that Lady O doesn't need the sweets? Perhaps she was back at the house eating lobster and baluga whale.

Doesn’t it use a lot of energy to make ice? I wonder how much carbon footprint was caused by 19 snow cones? Was it bigger than Michele’s shadow?

LOL and surely a MIA judgment or just a MIA 'second thought' that should have been 'first'.

That said; the only noteworthy info in this story is that Michelle was 'not present'. Sooooo where the heck was she? And so, OK; while Michelle's absence 'kind of' jumps off page; there is nothing else here in this story to make it relevant.

It is JANUARY 3rd, for God's sake. It is time for these people to be back home and AT WORK! Good grief. . .can we spell 'sick - en - ing'? Happy New Year, Obama and family! Now, go home. . .Get out of town! (Though, in truth; would like for them to stay in Hawaii for a l o n g time. . .)

LOL and for sure on the carbon footprint. And what about those villain calories? New York State 'Education' dictates now that 'bake sales' cannot be held in any of the schools as fund raisers because of 'obesity crisis'(more states to follow; if Obama does not first, make it a 'Federal offense').

Maybe they could do 'snow cones'/shaved ice. No calories, right? LOL and 'barf'/all in one. . .

Welcome to their world. . .and remember that you like both snow cones AND cookies and/or cakes/pie, before you head to polls in 2010.
