Poor Obama. Didn’t get to enjoy his 11 day vacation.
BOO F-ING HOO..it’s his job you cry baby MSM hack!!!!!!!!!
Ah yes......and on to the next vacation......
I really hope he got enough rest. I’m sure he’s got a big European travel schedule planned for this year.
Except he didn't make a statement about the Christmas bomber for 3 days.
"Never really escaped".
How's his tan doing? Did he get to work on erasing his tan lines again?
Oh, the HORROR!
AP lapdogs are glad their master is back, giving them news to report again........
Coulda fooled me...
He celebrates the “Hawaiian holiday”, not Christmas. But don’t question his proclamation of being a Christian.
I’ve never in my 50 plus years heard of any president in my lifetime who took 11 days VACATION! If he can’t stand the heat........
Can I get a copy of the President’s employment contract indicating the number of paid vacation days he is entitled to per year?
Golf. Snorkeling. Avatar. Shaved Ice. More Golf. Body Surfing. More Golf. The Gym. An entire Hawaiin bay to himself. More Golf.
He was really deprived, apparently having to limit himself to workouts, 6 hours of golf and a shave ice each day to make room for his day job. Oh, except for the movie and zoo and luau and...
Pesky national security!
Boo-Hoo Cry me a River.
Poor guy...oh well, back to the business of destroying America!
This POS spent millions of our dollars and was in Hawaii for 11 days, played golf, sunned at the beach, ate a expensive restaurants while ignoring for days the problems here and his adoring media whines for him?
I hate that POS and his POS manzilla
I’m still betting he’ll flee to Camp David this weekend, just after getting back.
No escape at all.
MO has had time for lots of shopping. I can hardly wait for all the new outfits. ;o)
don’t forget all the new “boob belts”! ;)
The double standard in the media is amazing. The are stories running today about how horrible it is that the President went back to DC early.
He's been on vacation since 1/20/09, I thinks that's a little longer than 11 days, IMHO.
I thought he was coming back a day early.
That Son of a Bi-ch needs to get his @$$ back to work. Well not really because he’s F’ing up this country but at least put on a suit and tie and look the part.
Just how many people in the United States have taken an 11 day vacation to Hawaii for free? Let them eat cake!
I was also wondering about the length of this vacation. In the interest of both truth and curiosity, I’d like a comparison of this with other presidents.
I’d be willing to bet the over a 40 rounds of golf for the year line.
The Roman Empire didn’t collapse in a day...
The Bam has been playing more golf lately than Tiger Woods.
And in warm sunshine too. Paid for by all of us working chumps via Federal Tax extortions—the legalized organized crime syndicate in DC.
I know a lot of people who go on vacation but they’re always on call in this age of easy communication.
That's because he spent 4 years RUNNING for president.
To think of all the money we were saving by paying for him to be on vacation...
MO must of been shopping..as I did not see her in a lot of the photo shots of the One and the kids, she was out of sight except for a couple of photos.. Hawaii has lots of sleeveless clothes to show off those fabulous arms of hers,
Probably shopping at Kauai Tent and Awning.....
On one hand Obama likes to talk about how he faces the biggest challenges since “FDR”. Then he goes on a Hawaiin vacation, his second vacation in less than a year.
Just think if a Republican was in office and the economy was in total shambles, do you think they would get away with: flying chefs into DC, spending on lavish parties, taking wife to NY for date, flying luau’s to DC, golfing nonstop, spending 4 grand a night for a hotel, decadent trips to the Hampton’s/Martha’s vineyard, etc.
I think it’s turning even his milder supporters off. It’s disgusting. What a hypocrite. Share the wealth indeed.
Right, no matter that is a cold winter, turn up the heat so MO can show off her arms. They aren’t paying the heating bills at the WH, we are.
WTH is he carrying?
President Bush ended a Crawford, Texas vacation to return Monday to the Washington he never really escaped.
Hmm, makes Bush sound so dedicated and so darned busy. So no, instead it would have been written thusly.
President Bush ended an extended vacation to return Monday to the Washington amongst charges from critics that he has his priorities wrong in these times of war and economic uncertainty.
But there's no bias, no siree!
As he and his minions have had no such experience, they wouldn't know.
Can anyone remember such empathetic articles for President Bush? What a bunch of scum bag liberal hypocrites.
My sentiments exactly. The double standard is blatant.
That article has a lot of interesting information that I had never heard about before about some presidents.
President Bush spent a lot of time at his ranch in Crawford, but didn’t they refer to that as “the western White House”. For starters, it was his HOME - not a vacation spot. He worked his ranch while attending to his job as President. The media hated being there in the summer.
” So even though Obama wore casual slacks on New Year’s Day when he took his daughters to see a 3-D version of the film “Avatar,” that BlackBerry on his belt wasn’t for fashion.
For a wartime president who dodged dealing with a terrorist attack on Christmas, “
Three hours after the attack-Barry was one of the last Americans to be informed.
Dec 25 , 2009
White House spokesman Bill Burton said Friday that Obama, on vacation in Hawaii, was informed of the incident about three hours after the plane landed.
And he was soooo alarmed-after 15 minutes of “ briefing “ ( a White House euphemism for smoking) -he left for the gym.
He drew questions about his level of involvement by not getting his first briefing on the incident until two hours ( the White House said it was really 3 hours )
after it was all over -
and then only for 15 minutes,
when he departed for the gym.
And under the heading of you can’t make this up:
“ Between golf outings, he phoned his homeland security secretary and counterterrorism adviser for regular updates.”
“ Rather than restaurant recommendations, the president was handed thrice-daily updates from the White House Situation Room. “
Handed doesn’t mean he read them.
And the White House Situation Room -Axelrod ? Emanuel ? Rev Wright ? Soros ?
was calling the shots.
Not Goofy and his snorkel.
