President Obama Sunday seemed to shrug off the brouhaha after he broke with White House tradition and ditched his press pool earlier this weekend to watch one of his daughters soccer games.
Prior to Obamas bilateral meeting with Pakistan Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, Obama told his colleague, apparently I caused quite a problem," , adding something about his secretary not telling the Secret Service, according to, ironically enough, the pool report.

Who’s the daughter playing soccer with? Not Sidwell-Friends.
But there was no game to see that day?
It's not as if it was - ah, Bush. (who would've then been summarily impeached)
apparently I caused quite a problem,”
Naw! You’re just a low life, nacissist, POS
Sure Larry Sinclair didn’t ‘POP UP’?
Yes, you have but it has absolutely nothing to do with ditching the pool reporters.
Anyone remember that almost-totally-forgettable movie with Kevin Kline called Dave, where Kline’s character is a doppleganger for the president, and stands in for the president at press-meetings and whatnot so the president can have liasons with his mistress(es)? Obastard’s behaviour sounds sorta fishy in that context.
Who is the “colleague” Obama is talking to?
Notice how he cannot even once take responsibility for his own f’ups ? Some secretary did it ! Or didn’t do it.
I know I am going to GET IT for this, but I cannot hold it against any father who goes to extraordinary lengths to take care of his daughter. We all know, the SS was there, even if it caused them some convolutions. I think every POTUS has dodged the SS protocol a bit in their tenure.
I may despise him, I may think he is a damn socialist who is destroying the country his daughter will have to live in as an adult (assuming it is even here).
But as a father, I can’t fault him. I think he really loves his kids (and I think more than their mom, who would use them as gateposts to more power).
He is just too stupid to link his actions now to their lives later. Remember, he is a shallow and vapid man with no ability to understand anything beyond his immediate orders from his handlers.
OK, bring the dogpile.
It’s NEVER the Messiah’s fault, doncha know?
I was kind of hoping he just left without an Opus.
Good question. And why is this "news story" hiding the identity?
Paging Larry Sinclair..
>>Anyone remember that almost-totally-forgettable movie with Kevin Kline called Dave<<
Almost forgettable? 6.8 on IMDB (respectable): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0106673/ and $63M in 1993?
It is a sideline classic! And the scene where he and Sigourney Weaver ditch the SS and go for burgers is hilarious!
The idea he is a “wonderful guy” and “has real ethics” was a bit hackneyed, but it had real heart.
Let me ask the dumb question - media “pool” was ditched - but was there not one other “parent” / adult present at the so called soccer game that the media can find and verify ?
Dang - can’t the press just lose him for a week or so....
So...he was without SS protection? A very dangerous move for the Narcissist in Chief given the times we live in.
He LIED about the F up. This country deserves somebody who would not blame everyone else for their wee wee ups. He can go back to Chicago and be a great father.
Emergency Soros Meeting?
The best part of that movie was where Dave and his lib cabinet were line-iteming budget cuts. Hilarious!
Ich Bin Eine Hoser.
Dang. I had forgotten about the 'pool report'.
Did he go to have a private meeting with George Soro’s or his Saudi handler. Who is pulling Obama’s strings?
Seems he has no problem using his daughters as gateposts to more power. I'm going to teach them, first of all about values and morales, but, if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby.
>>He LIED about the F up. This country deserves somebody who would not blame everyone else for their wee wee ups. He can go back to Chicago and be a great father.<<
Just a perspective. My take is he should go back to Kenya to be a good dad, but that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be a good dad.
Look at poor Chelsie — her dad and mom didn’t give a damn about her. Same for Amy.
I honestly think that he cares about his kids. I really do. But it his only “redeeming” quality.
You have to paint the enemy in realistic terms. Pluses and minuses. Any ideological fog is nothing but screens that misconstrues the target.
No games scheduled for that day....
But as always, just be dismissive and the obamamedia will cover it up.
My thoughts too. He needed a little gay play time without his handlers.
Could you cite your reasons for thinking he is a good father?
I’m curious. I’ve seen no evidence whatsoever that he is a good father. None that he isn’t (other than being a fiend in human form, at best a bisexual, and a communist) but not a shred of evidence to support your assertion.
IMHO is had nothing to do with the nonexistent soccer game and as far as his children living in his mess I believe they’ll move to a different yet productive country where his crown will be regularly shined.
Except that apparently there wasn’t any soccer game.
Bingo . The winning real reason.
Interesting but did he really ditch the SS or just the press? It stated that the secretary didn’t tell the SS...that doesn’t mean they weren’t in tow does it? But if that was the case, that’s very interesting. I hope people are paying attention to this marxist’s movements.
His poor daughter...raised in a home of racist anti Americanism. Hope she turns out OK. No sarcasm intended.
Since when is April soccer season anywhere in the US ?
The bold faced lie.
Pres Soros’s latest decisions could not discussed over the phone.
I wonder what the daughter of the headcheese thinks?
surely she’s not immune to tv news ?
oh that’s right her Momma doesn’t allow tv watching at the WH
What is the background of obammy & Larry Sinclair?
I still don't believe he left the WH or he was not there Saturday night and returned Sunday morning.
Actually....we have soccer in the spring and fall at our local YMCA. My high school held soccer season in the spring. Not commenting on the current story just answering your question.
From the article:
The Associated Press wrote that the surprise trip Saturday morning quietly breached years of protocol by leaving the White House without taking the press pool with him.
He didn't dodge the Secret Service. That bit in the article where it was reported, although not quoted, about not telling the Secret Service is just Obama being Obama. Creating controversy where otherwise none exists, and making himself the center of attention. His security was never compromised, although he wants you to believe otherwise. He craves the compassion that anyone is willing to give him for seemingly putting his family before his own security.
I don't fault him for loving his kids. I fault him for manipulating the event in an attempt to portray himself as one of us, which he isn't, no matter how hard he tries...
I remember reading a quote from him saying to the effect that, "Michelle and I have to look after our daughters".
It's an odd way of saying "raise our daughters" (that was the context). Almost as if he doesn't think they belong to him.
He's a complete narcissist. He can't even think about others except in how THEY think about HIM.
For a moment there, I thought that was what the Qatari diplomat said.
So...he was without SS protection?
>>Could you cite your reasons for thinking he is a good father?<<
Objectively look at how he has protected his kids from the press. And, he may be stupid (the dumbest POTUS ever), but his voice changes when he talks about his kids. His eyes change.
I know all POTUS’ have shielded their kids, but I see something there.
But I knew my post would draw this response.
A “dear, devoted, father” out to see his little girl play soccer would have been a hell of a photo opp for a President with low approval ratings, and I find it hard to believe that this narcissist in chief would have passed that one up.
Not only that, but if he TRULY went to a soccer game (maybe they play for a league besides their school one?) he wants us to believe that NOT ONE PARENT there had a camera? Not 1 single person took a picture of him? They weren’t ready to comment that he was there? Because you know someone in the press wanted to track him down and surely htey could have found 1 parent with a photo or with a comment.
The whole story stinks to high heaven. He probably spent that hour with Larry Sinclair.
>>One poster already stated that there was no game that day, but even if that is wrong, how many fathers do you know that are as accomplished liars as obama?<<
Being a liar doesn’t mean he doesn’t love his kids. It just makes him scum.
I think lines are being crossed here that just don’t make sense. Ideology doesn’t create nor suppress paternal love.
He is a socialist. But I think he loves his kids.
JMO, I guess.
