Obama Returns to Chicago Home to Sleep, Cook, ‘Putter in My Backyard’
ABC News ^ | 1 Jun 2012 | Devin Dwyer

Posted on 06/01/2012 7:40:08 PM PDT by mandaladon

CHICAGO — President Obama is back in his adopted hometown tonight for three campaign fundraisers and an overnight stay (sans family) in his private home on the city’s South Side.

“It’s good to be back home. I’m sleeping in my bed tonight. I’m going to go to my kitchen and might cook something. Putter in my backyard,” Obama joked before a crowd of 350 donors at the Chicago Cultural Center. “The White House is nice, but I’m just leasing.”

Obama said he wants to extend that lease for another four years, and argued that voters in November will need to weigh a stark choice before giving him the opportunity.

“The choice in this election will be between a vision that didn’t work in 2000-2008. Didn’t work before the Great Depression. The Gilded Age. We’ve seen this philosophy before. But usually we’ve come to our senses. We see that’s not how democracy is built.”

“That’s the vision we’re going to have to confront and address in this election,” he said. “The good news is when you cut through the noise and just ask people, most people agree with us.”

Obama acknowledged, as he did earlier in the day, that today’s jobs report left much to be desired, attributing the lackluster numbers to the European debt crisis.

“We saw that in today’s job report. A lot of that is attributed to Europe, the cloud coming over the Atlantic. The world economy has been weakened by it, but beyond that we still know too many friends, family out of work. Too many people struggling to pay bills,” he said.

Probably a stop by his old haunt “Man’s Country” to meet up with Rahm to get a steam and anything hard that comes up....

Is he alone?

I can only think of one or two other times that he’s gone ‘home to Chicago’ since 2008.

Mighty big house to stand empty.

Hard to make a hole in one with a putter.

Just sayin'.

It by putter he means something other than yard work, he is our first gay President. Could he sound more gay if he tried? And according to the courts that is no longer an insult. Furthermore there was no intent to insult, just to describe.

Ya want private enterprise to bloom? Sell the public in Chicago something they can use. Due to the high number of shootings, I’d say some sort of kevlar or BP resistant clothing line would probably do quite well.

I was about to post the same thing. It seems the media is ignoring the many rumours that 0 and Rham the rammer were members in the same Chicago gay bath house.

There are so many funny things one can say about his "going to putter in my back yard" statement. But, I will be reserved here.

Just going to say...Lordy, another Obama garden!!?? But bet this one is growing some weed, not healthy veggies.

Putter in HIS back yard?

He means putter in Rezko’s back yard since his felon buddy bought most of it in a sweet deal to gain influence the Chicago way.

How long since he’s been there? There must be three inches of dust on everything! If I hadn’t been “home” to my “home” in that long, I would want to spend some time, cleaning everything, making it right, then spending a couple nights quietly sleeping there. (Of course, if I were a man, it would never be right if my wife weren’t there. It is, after all, her home, too.)

Obama: “We saw that in today’s job report. A lot of that is attributed to Europe, the cloud coming over the Atlantic...”

It’s Bush;
It’s greedy corporations and the 1% holding on to their wealth;
It’s the hangover from Japan’s tsunami/earthquake;
It’s high gas prices caused by greedy Big Oil and people creating more demand by not checking the air pressure in their tires often enough;
It’s stubborn Republicans in Congress not passing my latest stimulus/jobs bill and other great stuff I propose to them;

No! Here it is! It’s, it’s that pesky dark cloud coming over the Atlantic. Yeah, that’s the ticket!

No more questions now. I’ve got to get to my sixth fundraiser of the day and, uh, I’m frankly tired of these silly questions.

Well, we’ll see what we can do to retire you and send you back there real soon. say November to January time-frame.

I'm sure he hired all of the above out to young, sweaty men and sipped a lovely iced coffee on his back deck ogling them as they worked....muscles rippling.....

I wish I was kidding.

Hope he doesn’t spend much time cleaning it up. I’m not sure it’s his house anymore...seems there’s talk that a skip tracer found out that a Cook County Circuit Judge-(initials: JS) and Bath-House Barry’s accountant own the house.

I was thinking the same thing. Bush would go home often when he was in the White House. Strange that one wouldn’t go home once in a while.

The Clinton’s went home, but then again I don’t think they owned one at the time.
