Obama in Colombia: ‘Part of My Job Is to Scout Out Where I May Want to Bring Michelle Back Later
CNS News ^ | 4/15/12 | Terence P. Jeffrey

(CNSNews.com) - Just two days after President Barack Obama gave a sharply edged response to news anchor Larry Conners of KMOV in St. Louis after Conners had asked the president about Americans who “get frustrated and even angered when they see the first family jetting around [to] different vacations and so forth,” Obama told a panel at the Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia that part of his job there was to scout out locations for a future vacation with First Lady Michelle Obama.

Obama was speaking on a panel with Colombian President Juan Mauel Santos and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff when he made the remarks. The panel was moderated by Chris Matthews of MSNBC.

“I want to thank President Santos and the people of Colombia for the extraordinary hospitality in the beautiful city of Cartagena,” said Obama. “We're having a wonderful time. And usually when I take these summit trips, part of my job is to scout out where I may want to bring Michelle back later for vacation. So we'll make sure to come back sometime in the near future.”

I’d be perfectly happy with it as long as they’d stay there.

If Romney’s attack machine is anywhere near as vicious as has been reported on Free Republic, it should be all over that statement. Up until now our “royal couple” has been largely given a pass on the vacations, even though they did irritate a lot of people — and not just his enemies.

The sheer gall of that statement should infuriate every American. Unemployment out the window, inflation and maybe even hyper-inflation a definite possibility, a Supreme Court battle over Obamacare he seems to be losing, ongoing questions of unlawfully usurped authority, blatant contempt for duly passed and signed laws, an eligibility issue that refuses to go away...

...and this???

In several rooms of the White House, Democrat Party headquarters and all across the MSM, there are undoubtedly fresh bruises on walls and lockers from people banging their heads in tearful frustration. If you wander down the corridors you might even find clumps of ripped out hair.

This one line could lose him reelection.

For one thing, the comics won’t be able to resist, and there might even be skits on SNL. These jokes and skits are not going to be supportive. The newspaper editorials are going to be caustic to say the least, and not just in Conservative papers. It’s going to be a bloodbath.

Get the popcorn.

When you get right down to it, politics and ideology aside, this guy is just a totally lame a--hole of a human being. Some people wonder why we never hear of any "friends of obama." He doesn't have any.

What’s the difference between the Kenyan in Air Force 1 and a porcupine backed into a corner?

With the porcupine the prick’s on the outside.

I hate this guy as much as the next conservative. But this is clearly him trying to be funny. I give him a pass on this one.

After the first time it was funny. When goes from country to country with the same false patter, it is old, tired and used. Not funny, not useful, and in many cases harmful to our relations. We remember it here, to recall it again it is regurgitated for the next 3 trips.

Bleh.

Wondering if he was one of the 11. If so, probably trying to get the taste out of his mouth.

He’s trying to be Kennedyesque with the problem being that Jackie was pretty, well dressed and a lady, while Michelle is a beast.

Actual CNN Headline (you just can’t make this stuff up): Obama calls for ‘rigorous’ probe into Secret Service prostitution allegations (a rigorous probe started this).

Maybe he should search for a place that does not have an extradition treaty with the US

His JOB?!? His job is to run the country of the USA, not be employed as travel agent for his wife.

I think they should ban his vacations from now until the end of his ONE AND ONLY term.

I think he is trying to ridicule the people who have the gall to question his vacationing. He doesn’t have the sense of humor to pull it off, and it just makes people madder.

Not quite; it is predictable, the pattern; later he’ll make a joke about the vacations and have a good laugh with the media, and then the topic is off limits and the media will ensure that everyone complies. And when complaining about a budget deficit, any non-essential spending of the people’s money is a no-no.

Yep, the pattern; later he’ll make joke about the vacations and have a good laugh with the media, and then the topic is off limits and the media will ensure that everyone complies.

You said it all. Everything he mutters is SO beneath the office of the Presidency. What a vile disgusting schmuck.

Bet you a $10 donation to FR that this is buried, never heard of again, and Romney won’t touch it with a 10 foot pole.

You said it, this guy is such a total dunderhead he can’t even imagine the degree of contempt in which he is held is so many parts of the world.

Even the people he toadies to are a bit put off, saliva-drenched toes are not really that comfortable.
