HONOLULU - President Obama's Hawaii retreat has been about as close as any president can get to a real vacation.

At the risk of jinxing Mr. Obama, so far no major crisis or controversy has intruded into his get-away.

Only to be interrupted by having to dis-run a nation.

A real vacation as opposed to all those fake vacations. How special is that?

Exactly...while dangerous nations continue pressing forward with their agendas. Bo has zip zero clout in the world. They give him only lip service at best and for the most part ignore him. He has well earned that.

Okay, a “Captain Obvious” question: Why is it that whenever Dubya went to Crawford, it was ALWAYS “another vacation, doesn’t he EVER work?” Now, with nObama, it’s “hard-earned time away from Washington!”

I’d be curious to see if anyone has (or has the cajones to) come up with a comparison of time away from Washington for Dubya and the current resident of the People’s House???

Presidents are never really on vacation.. . .

The president travels with a staff that reflects the same presence seen at the White House. His national security and press office teams are with him. Dozens of other support personnel keep the president in contact with the White House situation room and key aides back in Washington. I must have missed the CBS reports about President Bush working from his ranch.

The slobbering love afair with the lame-stream press continues.

Why are there so many published puff pieces about his vacation???? Why does the MSM do this?

Whenever Bush was on vacation, he was neglecting his job, and disrespecting the masses who are grappling with poverty by going on vacation. But with Obama, we’re supposed to say tha the president deserves a vacation, to get away from it all, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Can you imagine if Laura Bush had taken a big entourage to Spain as Michelle Obama did? Can you imagine how the liberals and MSM would have treated that story?

Speaking of Michelle, do we know who paid for that humongous trip of hers?

So the rule is : if a Republican is president, his going on vacation is neglecting his job and not caring about the masses grappling with poverty. If a good Democrat is president, he deserves a vacation from the stresses of the toughest job on earth.

His life is a vacation.

Hasn't done squat since he was spawned.

Why this creature is President of the United States of America is beyond my understanding.

No major crisis? What a laugh. The state of the nation is nothing but one big CRISIS, you moronic buttlicks.

10.6% of Americans are on forced vacation thanks to his meltdown.

Pray for the Tea Party Congress

Ah, the 'soft racism' of low expectations.

Unfortunately for Barry his vacation is being rained out. There have been flash flood warnings on some portion of the island 2 of the past 4 days. This morning one of the three gates at Pearl Harbor was closed due to high water and I hear its worse on the north side where he is.

Yup, and what has happened to the thousands of "homeless" persons since Bush left office? Oh right, they always disappear when a dimocrat is the WH. Nevermind.

The MSM is getting exactly what they deserve - journalistic and economical death, and at least reduced influence. I've despise them all for decades, recent Fox News, Internet, and a few print companies notwithstanding.

I would guess that he and his cohorts in Congress have so successfully pushed through their socialist agenda, and now has capitulated on national defense, that there will be NO crisis ever again in the entire World. (/sarcasm)

We are so hosed. I bet history shows him to be the greatest appeaser since Chamberlain, and later, Carter. Of course, too late then.

I predict we are looking at nuclear war if we don't get a leader who has the cojones to make the bad guys of the World stand down. It's ALWAYS about projection of strength. I'm a nobody who still realizes this from my childhood days with bullys. Show weakness; you get messed with. Show strength; they go somewhere else.

Boo-Fukking-Hoo!

What about the people up and down the California coast dealing with mudslides from all the rain they've been having, or the people in the northeast shoveling out up to 2 feet of snow? I'm sure they really give a rip that his majestic Obama-ness can't get out in the warmth of Hawaii and hit a bunch of mulligans.

(At least, those whose homes haven't been foreclosed on)

Seems like he always has bad weather when he “vacations”. Didn’t they have terrible weather at Martha’s vineyard last summer? God has a since of humor. I wonder when the mooching moose is heading out for another vacation. This will help his ratings plummet.
