Skip to comments.Obama Preps for Debate in Splendor
Posted on 10/15/2012 10:45:53 AM PDT by Hoodat
President Obamas distaste for debate preparation may be mitigated by the location his current tutorial, the fabulous Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg Virginia, featuring stunning scenery, deluxe accommodations, and three championship golf courses.
A portion of the tab for this luxury is of course being picked up by taxpayers, who largely footed the bill to fly Obama down there aboard Air Force One and house his White House retinue in Williamsburg for three nights. Presumably many of his aides, including a large security detail, are at the hotel itself.
Exactly why Obama needed to be training for his debate at the Kingsmill Resort instead of the White House or Camp David is unclear.
The best explanation is probably that this is largely a political trip. Virginia is a key swing state and Williamsburg is perfectly situated between two of the major media markets, Richmond and the coastal area of Norfolk and Newport News.
Obama, who has avoided taking a vacation this year in order to focus on the campaign and avoid charges that he is luxuriating while the nation suffers, certainly has an opportunity now to make up for lost vacationing when hes not rehearsing his debate lines.
From the Hotels description of itself:
Home to three championship golf courses, a world-class spa, a bustling tennis center and acres of lush, meticulously cared-for grounds, Kingsmill Resort is a magical place where cherished memories are created, history is discovered and fun is invented.
The press pool reports have been rhapsodic:
Good morning from the lovely Kingsmill Resort . . . Potus is studying for the debate, but your pooler didnt see evidence of him or his senior staff this morning while walking from our room to the pool hold, though a lovely walk it was.
One pooler noted the hotel is hosting . . .

Who would deny a condemned man his last meal? Even if it was a political demise.
Mainstream Media “Comeback Kid” headlines with attendant polls showing a “remarkable tightening” of the race have been written and are waiting to go to print.
Or just commie skink in the grass.
Yep,he’s the people’s people.
I heard 0bama is bringing his own applause machine with him.
He lives for his adoring fans cheering after every sentence he speaks.
You must all be asking yourselves as I am “WHO is paying for all this?”
” Home to three championship golf courses, a world-class spa, a bustling tennis center and acres of lush, meticulously cared-for grounds”
Forget this.....how many teleprompters ?
He wanna be da masterdebater.
As The Caliph of The United Socialist States of Amerika, 0bama thinks he “deserves” only the finest.
Obama “preparing” for the debates at resort with golf courses. Who would have guessed?
I wonder if the person who picked the location realized that the temptation to play golf and avoid studying might be too much for Barry?
I stared in disbelief at that same sentence. Do they think we are really that stupid?
It might be old protocol but I thought Marine One was to be used for trips to the Richmond and Tidewater areas? With the drive time from those two locales, Marine One is far less expensive, safer for POTUS and a hell of a lot less inconvien.....err, never mind. I just answered my own question.
Anyone in their right mind would never cram for a “Critical Path” debate in a “five star” resort hotel!!! Obama likes to play POTUS, he does not like to be POTUS when it comes to leading and making decisions!!! And......John Kerrey as his debate coach again......come on!!! You gotta be kidding me!!!
How many times are you guys going to keep posting this nonsense?
People here act so scared of the press and Obama.
You completely misunderstand. I think the predictability of the MSM is hilarious.
