Barack Obama has been forced to leave Ireland early due to fears Airforce One could be grounded by a new volcanic ash cloud blowing down from Iceland.
- A White House spokesman confirmed that concerns over the ash cloud from the Grimsvötn volcano forced the presidential entourage to make a swifter than expected exit from the Republic.
He had been expected to stop off Tuesday morning at Glasnevin cemetery en route to the airport to pay homage at the crypt of Daniel O'Connell, in an acknowledgement of the 19th century Irish nationalist leader's role in opposing the slave trade.

I should think O’bama could stay the ash with his bare hand!

He has now thrown Ireland underneath the bus.
At least he didn’t have to use that old one about “having to scoop the poop.”
The Democrat fat-cats in Rhode Island really at that one up.
Ah proof of the luck of the Irish, mac daddy left early.
Zero is such a pussy. Any woman is more man than him.
Oh golly gee!
Does this mean his zeroness won’t get to to go to the UK and meet with QEII?
Does this mean he won’t get his second nose rubbing in his own **it in less than a week (Bibi was first)?
The Lord is watching over Britain.
Quick, someone install a volcano in D.C.!
"When I become president, I'll turn superpower America into a Third World
backwater----as payback. I'll make sure Americans live in hovels like this."
God is after the mofo. Sooner or later..
I expect no less from the First Wuss.
Hey! Take a picture of me with this mama over here.
I don’t know what I’d do in these dark days without funny FReepers! You guys always crack me up in threads like this....LOL!!
....psssst, there’s a few coconuts in Paris
Aint that a shame?
He missed his Tee Time. Oh No! He was going to set the record of the most expensive round ever played.
Why doesn’t Air Force One just take a detour....over Israeli airspace.
No good Greens there. Obongo is not in to hie Roots.
Guess who was providing commentary on Irish Television.
OUR OWN MAURREN DOWD.
Oh (****) darn... does that mean he’s coming back here early?
Isn’t this the second time he had to change his itinerary because of volcanic ash?
I’m sure he gets angry when natural events put a crimp in his vacation plans. Do ya think he ever wonders about how the “little” people in Tuscaloosa or Joplin deal with it?
Good thinking. He needs to be in England anyway for the important state dinner. If he were to cancel that because of the volcano it would not be good even though obviously not his fault he needs to be in England.
Proof read Cajun, Proof read!
So he travled to Ireland at American taxpayer expense to make a campaign speech?
Interesting point. As if he doesn’t waste enough money. Why is he campaigning in Ireland?
Yes. And is Jarrett the POTUS EVIL WITCH giving federal aid to those that need it after the latest horrific tornados?
Yes he did!
Maybe not...he's going to arrive in Britain a day early . LOL!
As this is a "State" visit, I wonder if the lovely Michelle will add some 'bling' to her cardigans?
Dear God, I am sorry that I mumbled that last prayer.
I meant to say, “blow the ass up”, not ash up. I will work at being more clear and specific.
Destruction follows this guy everywhere he goes.
Think about it, it is biblical like. Floods, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, ice storms, rats, flies, earthquakes. He and his crew have a very bad mojo. I’ve been saying it since he became pres. God does not like Ugly!
I forgot about his fly problems that happened more than once didn’t it?
And not even the sheep are scared of him.
Because you can fool some of the people all of the time.
The Irish side trip was planned before Bibi went up and down on both sides of his head and Axelhole's love fest was really, really, really needed to bolster OhOh's fragile ego.
And things were going nicely until the Beast bottomed out and then the car trouble not to mention the treacherous Irish racists tried to poison him with that yuckee black swill that tastes nothing like Corona Light Ultra Light
Although I think as great a job as Bibi did on zero, that old broad (excuse me “her Majesty”) could probably do an even better job.
He turns the plane around for fear of the ash. Poor baby.
An entire American city has been wiped off the map in flyover country, thousands have been made homeless and hundreds are dead.
He should be getting his ass back here to support the citizens in need. Even if it is just for show (we know he doesn’t give a shit about them), that is what American presidents do. It’s his job.
Our president is AWOL, and worried about his own safety. Bastard.
Yeah how pathetic TheWon needed an ego fluff and the only place he can go and scream his YES WE CAN garbage is WAY over the pond somewhere. NEXT UP: I wonder if MO will wear BIG ugly dufus shoes and trip on the Queen or if TheWon Odumbo will bow or something?
BS, it only took about a half dozen pubs and talking to a number of old drunk Irishmen who said they knew his mother for him to decide he had no roots in Ireland.........
The “old broad” will, as always, display impeccable manners regardless of the lack of class of her guests.
Yep, the flies were so bad in the WH, nobody had ever remembered having flies like that. And when that rat scooted across the podium in the Rose Garden, that was toooo much!
I am not joking when I say this, but since the primaries, he has reminded me of Damien from the Omen.
Oh, come on people!
We all know what is really going on.
Obama is coming home early because of Bibi, and the things he will say to Congress on Tuesday.
Obama should be scared. If enough big donors, Jewish or otherwise, withhold funds from the Democratic Party over the 1967 border issue, his reign is over.
Dang! I was kinda hoping he’d get stuck there for a few weeks. ;o)
