Barack Obama To Travel to Indonesia With Family
Telegraph(UK) ^ | February 02, 2010

Posted on 02/02/2010 9:31:16 AM PST by Steelfish

Barack Obama To Travel to Indonesia With Family US President Barack Obama and his family will retrace his childhood steps, travelling to Indonesia next month in a nostalgic return to the country where he lived with his late mother and Indonesian stepfather in the 1960s.

02 Feb 2010

The trip, in the second half of March, has been greatly anticipated in the world's most populous Muslim-majority country since Mr Obama's inauguration, which was welcomed in Indonesia as the start of a new era in US diplomacy.

Dino Patti Djalal, a spokesman for Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, said the visit was a chance for Mr Obama to set relations on a more equal footing. "We want relations between Indonesia and the United States not only to cover one issue. There used to be an imbalance, only democracy and human rights," he was quoted as saying by Antara state news agency.

This guy has taken more vacations in one year than the last 5 POTUS combined. And more than an average American will take in 10 years.

Wonder if he`ll visit the school he went to where he was enrolled as a muslim and studied the koran as well as visit the mosque he went to for friday prayers.

Not true you say?

Substantiated fact.

Can't he stay there?

Does he ever have time for the crisis we are having here?

Wasn't blowing at least 40K of AMERICAN TAXPAYER dollars on a Hawaiian vacation in December enough?

Oh, I forgot. This President has partied MORE than any other President and played more golf (the white man's sport) than George Bush did in years in Obama’s first nine months of office. I get it ....

"He wants to save the statue?"

BINGO!
my thoughts exactly considering:

"He also acknowledged that the visit would have a "sentimental" aspect for Obama, who went to primary school from 1967 to 1971 in the wealthy neighbourhood of Menteng, where a statue of the US president as a schoolboy was erected in December."

Indonesian school enrollment:

“Obama is registered under the name Barry Soetoro by his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro. The school card lists Barry Soetoro as a Indonesian citizen born Aug. 4, 1961, in Honolulu, Hawaii. His religion is listed as Muslim.

This enrollment actually lists his “father” as “Lolo Soetoro”

Is this trip really necessary? Is Obozo doing the business of this country, or just out to get all the free travel he can get at our expense? This is BS, and Obozo is a usurper.

“Obama is registered under the name Barry Soetoro by his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro. The school card lists Barry Soetoro as a Indonesian citizen born Aug. 4, 1961, in Honolulu, Hawaii. His religion is listed as Muslim.”

Actually, the enrollment lists Lolo Soetoro as his FATHER

I certainly don't know all about Obama's mama, Ann Dunham, but what I do know tells me she must have been one messed up chick.

She goes off to college at seventeen and promptly gets knocked up by an African Muslim Communist student-- who winds up living the life of an erratic alcoholic and dies in a drunken car crash. She marries him and he abandons his family within a few years. Two years after her divorce she met and married an Indonesian Muslim on the same University of Hawaii campus where she'd met Barack Sr.

Little Barry, Ann and her current hook-up Lolo Soetoro head off to Indonesia, where Lolo acts much like Barack, Sr--drunk and disorderly.

After a few years Ann ships little Barry off to live with his grandparents in Hawaii, who regularly expose him to documented pervert and Communist Frank Marshall Davis.

Sounds like a childhood well worth "re-tracing".

Or he wants his daughters to see it before it's defaced.
