Obozo needed to get back to DC to map out the excuses he can use Irene for.

“Potentially historic”

Eye wall is/ has collapsed. Could decay into a big rain by the time it hits NYC.

We’ll see if it’s real or hype.

Yes, it is historic. He shortened his vacation and saved us a few bucks.

Will he play it like it is a catastrophe similar to 9/11? Will he ‘not let this crisis go to waste’ as he tries in vain to appear presidential while he taking the reins to try to heal this country after this ‘historic’ storm?

No doubt he is going to try to use this to divert attention from his ‘vacation junkie’ wife who recently blew through $10,000,000 to constantly abandon the White House which she fought so hard to acquire.

Watch him “joke” in a few days about how much $$ he saved America by leaving his stressing vacation early.

There has absolutely GOT to be a political motivation to this media-ginned storm hysteria, even as Irene is collapsing. Help me out here.

a. To take the attention off Obama’s agonistes.
b. To give Obama a Horatius-at-the-bridge leadership moment.
c. To try and blow a little hot air into the deflated global warming hemorrhoid.
d. It’s just the Silly Season and we need some dramatic headlines.

Any other possibilities?

I wondered the same thing, lol. Earlier today I read that he would return tonight and Michelle and the girls would go back to D.C. tomorrow morning. Maybe their handlers told them we aren’t in the mood to pay for multiple flights again.

He really doesn’t look well in that picture.

Yep it will be Historic once he thinks up his big lying excuse of how it destroyed his economic recovery plans.

Since when did presidents return salutes, anyway?

Is the Commander in Chief actually authorized to salute? Did anyone bother to write it down anywhere?

If there’s anything I remember it’s that you don’t salute if you’re not in uniform.

That is definately no salute. It’s a cross between thumbing his nose and waving at the Airmen. We’ll never see a real salute. His little pea-brain is big enough to learn how, it’s his way of showing his hatred and disrespect of the military by not ever offering a genuine salute.

HAH! Michelle & the girls are probably mad because they have to leave tonight. Originally they were to leave in the morning. Someone must have mentioned the cost factor.

Uuuuhhh, they changed at least one rule re: saluting recently. Military retirees are authorized to salute during the National Anthem when not in uniform.

I texted my best friend "It only took an act of God to get Obama to leave his vacation...".

And the crazy thing is this hurricane IMO is not going to be bad at all AND I pray I am right because I have dear friends close to the coast in Virginia.

Bozo would have seen more rain in Chicago as we've had massive flooding if he wasn't in DC.

I'm not trying to make light of this situation although I sincerely believe the media is hyping this big time.

Just get an umbrella and keep an eye on your basement other than that this storm will be a Tropical Depression at most by the time it hits land.
