The Obama Family's Summer Highlights
politico ^ | 9/6/10 | AMIE PARNES

Posted on 09/06/2010 12:57:32 PM PDT by Nachum

As the first family has traveled up and down the Eastern seaboard (and occasionally beyond) for various summer excursions, they’ve given us a number of picture-perfect moments.

Remember when the president and Sasha took a dip in Panama City Beach, Fla.? Or how Michelle Obama strode through the streets of Marbella in southern Spain? Not to mention the almost-famous bike ride President Barack Obama took (in long pants!) at Martha's Vineyard. Malia made it to the Vineyard too; sadly, however, we didn’t get a peek of her at sleepaway camp.

With summer coming to an end, POLITICO takes a look back at the first family’s most relaxed moments of the last three months. Click above for the slideshow.

Anyone read the comments? This is the 2nd time in a few days, poor Politico, comments aren’t happy with this.

My fave pic shows warrior woman Michele meeting
the lithe, stunningly beautiful Spanish princess.

The delicate beauty of Princess Letizia, her graceful slimness accented by her
white sheath sharply contrasts with Michele's warrior woman heftiness.....all
Mrs O needed was a breastplate.

Mrs O to Staff: "Kill all those pics of me with the damn Princess."

Lots of photos here:  ;-)

First was 'Tourist Guy' followed by 'Looter Guy' and now introducing: 'Vacation Gal!'

'Vacation Gal' Part II (There she goes again!)


And the youtube:

I thought they had a house in Chicago. Friends to see there. That would be a nice vacation spot for all the time they spend there.

I wonder what the 0bamas are going to do for an encore. We could start a vacation game of “where are the 0bamas?”

I’ll need a map and some pins though.

We couldn’t afford a vacation this year. It’s not very comforting to realize my taxes paid for 10 of theirs (in one summer!)

i thought the nyt’s said “staycations,” were all the rage.
i haven’t been able to figure out why people so anxious
to get in white house also seem so anxious to leave it.

Not sure what the next series will be:



Vacation Gal goes on safari.

Or:



Vacation Gal visits Detroit during the Summer of Recovery.

"Yes, Michele I read that the Huffington Post hated the Oval do-over and
all the criticism you got for going to Spain, and your wardrobe, and all."

"And I know how much you want to be the Black Jackie, so I'll make the
sacrifice-----I'll sleep around with other women. That oughta do it."

The pic standing in the decrepit hotel in Detroit is a keeper. Nice work.

Have you ever seen a more contrived picture? They’re all pointing at the same time, as if to ... what? If they’re all looking at the same thing there’s no need to point. Goofballs just mugging for the camera people. Nothing real about any of them.

Things are so bad, the Dems are planning to foist Mrs O onto Americans.

She will bore America with her healthy eating campaign.

As a Spanish expert, she is extending her reach (?) into foreign affairs by addressing the Clinton Global Initiative.

This Tuesday, Mrs O will inaugurate a White House series showcasing American dance.

THANK YOU for all these picture-perfect moments of this family!!

I would never have made it through the day without seeing them.

Crazyhorse family summer highlights;
June-major surgery for the Mrs. showed no cancer
July-12 hour daily trips looking for our missing son on the streets of Portland(he is safe although 20 pounds lighter)
August-2 days in a motel in Lincoln City-ate out once a day and bought a pair of binoculars at a 2nd hand store and a few trinkets.
Sept- All expense paid trip for a 2 night family church camp near Rockaway-taught some of the people how to identify and pick huckleberries-I got the first piece of the berry pie. Ate 2 meals at McDonalds.
November-celebrated the gutting of the Democratic Congress by buying more expensive cheap beer. I know that this entry is not summer related, but, it gives me something to look forward to.

Her heftiness aside....she dresses like retro trailer trash. Wait. I take that back. Retro trailer trash even know how to dress better than Michelle.

The Obamas are an embarassment to America.

If the princess was not wearing 4-5 inch heels, the contrast would be even greater.

That said, I can’t take my eyes off her; what a beauty!

She is the mother of two adorable little girls---the wife of Prince Philipe (heir to the throne).

Her full official title is: Her Royal Highness Doña Letizia, Princess of Asturias, Princess of Viana, Princess of Girona, Montblanc, Countess of Cervera and Lady of Balaguer.

The Prince stands behind mother and child. That's her mother and father (L-R).
King Juan Carlos and his wife (who lunched with Mrs O) are pictured.

The buzz was Michele made an *** of herself.
Her kid was supposed to lunch elsewhere in the palace.
Mrs O demanded she eat with the grownups.

Mrs O demanded she eat with the grownups.

Why? Does she have political dreams for her child?
She should respect her host's wishes
.....not good, Michelle.
