POTUS takes tiny copter to Camp
Politico44 ^ | 07/01/11 | JULIE MASON

Posted on 07/02/2011 10:42:28 AM PDT by ColdOne

President Obama is off to Camp David for the weekend. Will it be fun? It's too remote! Too much nature! It's outdoorsy, and Obama is really not. First lady Michelle Obama revealed to the NYT what seemed somewhat self-evident: Obama doesn't really care for the place.

POLITICO recently documented the president's limited record of Camp David visitation. But this weekend — Malia's 13th birthday is Monday — off the family went, to the Catoctin Mountains. They all traveled separately, this time.

This afternoon, Obama boarded the smaller Marine One and departed solo.

Solo? That proves he is the Manchurian candidate! (Kidding)

He took the small chopper to minimize his carbon footprint. Obama is very enviro-conscious. His election means that we will stop the rising of the oceans, and allow the planet to heal.

Did you see the butt licking posts under the article? One said his golf playing is good for the country because it renews obama’s strength. People like this is why I hold out no hope for this country.

I have always wondered if that was the real reason he never goes to Camp David. I am sure that is it.

Obama doesn't really care for the place.

Camp David doesn't really care for him either.

LOL Don’t you remember the picture of him riding a girls bike with a helmet looking like a grown up version of Erkle? It was the WORST picture of any political figure I have ever seen. It beats John Kerry in a blue bunny suit, beats Dukakis with a headset in a tank.... its beats Billy Clinton saying “I did not have sexual relations with that woman,” This guy is so LAME its hard to quantify.

These two are perpetually travelling or engaging in leisure activities. How many vacations have they taken? Michelle just got back from her million dollar African tour.

Between vacations, golf, parties etc., I'm wondering when if any work gets done.

I said on another post I believe he sits in meetings off in the corner playing video games or watching ESPN or texting Michelle and every now and then someone says “Agree, Mr. President?” and he justs nods his head.

I truely don’t believe he makes any decisions. This guy is the biggest puppet to ever occupy the white house. The scary thing is the puppet masters don’t appear to be much smarter than he does when he talks off the cuff.

Unless its cash, I’m sure and then he only hates the pictures on it, not what it will buy.

I don’t believe there’s a golf course at Camp David, so that’s the biggest reason The Anointed One doesn’t spend much time there. On the other hand, how many trips has he made to the golf course at Andrews AFB? Doesn’t he already hold the record for most rounds of golf during a first term? If the golfing was better at Camp David, he’d be there every weekend.

What? He couldn't ride share? The bastard! Betcha he took the airborne diamond lane too!

While I commend the president for not choosing to blow 80 million dollars for a quick romp to New England, I'll chide him for blowing 40 million for a romp to Camp David while demanding congress stays at work this weekend to fix the budget that he himself advocated.

I sometimes wonder what might have happened if Obama bothered to actually show up for work as a senator...

Same reason he dissed the Driskill Hotel in downtown Austin for the new - and falling apart - W. Too many rich white people have stayed there. Truly a reverse snob.

How many times has he gone to Camp David? If it’s remote/private and out of the way, then I’m sure this is probably the main reason, he hates it. It doesn’t fulfill his narsistic need of public admiration. lol

Do you know of any photos of Obama showing affection for his wife? I’ve never seen any sign of affection to or from either one towards the other. I think they live parallel lives; and she probably excuses her ridiculous taxpayer funded vacations by telling herself what horrible sacrifices she is making as a “captive” in the White House - so she “deserves” the Platinum Travel Plan.

Marrying a “real” black woman gave the 50% white Baraq “street cred”. Same for attending Rev. Wright’s Palace of Hate.

Without those, he’s not a “real” black guy, and never gets on that first rung of the political ladder.

His job is not to do the work, but to cover for the ones who are doing it.
