But it keeps him busy with a failed plan instead of trying to wreck another sector of the US. Meanwhile, it is chipping away the last vestiges of his support.

Excuse me — hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha — I don’t want to get over-cocky, but it is pretty funny that his administration seems to be crashing and burning over this one issue. I guess this is what happens if you come into office as a robot with no plan “b”. Meanwhile, millions of Americans have been reminded what this country is about and why it is too important to lose.

That's ok...he should still be rested up from that two weeks in Hawaii...we can't afford many of his "vacations".

We need to stay alert...maybe they're cooking up another scheme to ram this through that would require his signature to pull off...so he has to stay nearby.

Don't put ANYTHING past this bunch of crooks in power now...they are evil to the core and have no honor or scruples whatsoever. If they're awake, they're up to something cynical.

BO completely does not get it.

What an utter failure.

Reminds me of Jimmy Carter, who locked himself up in the White House during the hostage crisis...refused to do his job in other areas, because he was a micro-managing control freak.

On the bright side, this is shaping up to show more Americans what a fanatic he is about government run health care. His failure will be greater because of this action. :)

Is he out of his MIND!!! Unemployment up the whazo, drowning in debt, the government can’t do anything without being way over budget, abuses, slow, intrusive and wasteful. And they want to focus on health care? If he’s so worried about health care for the few. Why doesn’t he just print more money, he has a printing press, he prints money for everything else, and give it to them to buy there own?

According to the AP, Obama is putting off the the trip three days, moving it to the 21st.

What an in incredibily inept and disrespectful move this is on the world stage. Obama is more and more being revealed as a buffoon when it comes to matters of state.

Obana postponing trip to Asia to work on healthcare

Someone must have mentioned how much his little fiasco was going to cost the unemployed, homeless, and starving tax payers in the U.S.. Imagine the headlines:

"Oboma Family Spends $2,000,000.00 On Family Trip Over Seas."
"Oboma Family Enjoys the Sites While America Burns."
'Michelle: The $2,000,000.00 Shopping Trip Of A Lifetime."

But, it is "sweet" of our glorious leader to cancel his little visit to save us from ourselves, isn't it?

I would love to see a SNL skit with President Obama taking a vacation to Las Vegas and having him double down on a bunch of poor hands on a Black Jack table and consistently losing until he has to be carried off the table by his aides and the Secret Service after going bankrupt. The casino boss asking the CIC to cover his losses would be the Chinese Premier.

"Work on healthcare"?

He has nearly killed it already!

Maybe he can drive the ceremonial "final nail" into its coffin.

How many times has this marxist muslim scumbag gone to Indonesia during his first year and half?

Has any other President even gone to Indonesia?......Obviously there’s still paperwork to be shredded and bribes to be offered.

I supported his trip to Indonesia. Your list is a perfect one though to illustrate the point. He was happy going to Asia with all of those problems hanging over his head. But health care is just SO IMPORTANT he has to hang around?

In fact, he’s just trying to put more pressure on the Democrats, as someone pointed out yesterday — “evil blue dog democrats are making poor Obama cancel his well-deserved vacation, and making his daughters miss out on the opportunity to see where their father grew up”

Oh noes! is right. According to the Hill article linked by Red Devil_232, Obama is stiffing Michelle and the kids:

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs confirmed the delay on Twitter:

The President will delay leaving for Indonesia and Australia - will now leave Sunday - the First Lady and the girls will not be on the trip

Yes, and the Obama obsession here is a sure sign this death care bill is dangerous ... People should run away from this horrific crap death care bill as fast as they can.

You don’t need read it, just watch Obama.

Since obama clearly believes in “share the wealth” he should give away all the proceeds from his books to the poor and needy of this country.

Where your money is, there your heart is also.

He is willing to pull out all the stops to become a dictator. Some of these Asian countries should tell him to just not bother coming. Think of the cost and disruption to reschedule security and events so the pretend Sun God can come and share his radiance with them.
