HONOLULU -- President Barack Obama ended a Hawaiian vacation to return Monday to the Washington he never really escaped.

Oh, you are just asking for it with post #2.
Tough crap, Hussein: I couldn't care less how many times you had to answer a phone call at 2 am. Your responses are worthless and weak.
what is seen can never be unseen...
OHHHHH GRACIOUS GOD!!!!
What is it with those high-waisted outfits!?
Sorry, not sure why the AP released that image ...
The country would be so much better off if you would stay on vacation until the end of your term.
Please take the worthless congress with you, yes all 535, as they are as useless as you are.
I'm an old guy. My Mennens won't last that long! Speaking of gag alerts!
Zoos are good places for animals to watch people as well as vice versa!
Hey Rock, take her to da zoo.
All I remember when I was a child and visiting a zoo was the monkeys throwing feces.
Remember during the campaign how we were asked who do you want answering the phone in the WH when that 2AM call comes in. I guess the answer to that question was NOT Barry Hussain Soetoro.
Are we supposed to feel sorry for them because their vacation in paradise was interrupted with pesky national security matters?
At leas the pits are covered...
FReepmail GOP_Lady if you want on or off this ping list
Second photo note feet he must have walked on water that day.
In Hawaii they call flip-flops slippers. His handlers probably told him to wear them to demonstrate that he’s really just a regular kinda guy.
