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.
Kerry is not really a debate coach. His only role in the prep is to lose to Obama. The problem last time is that Romney did not follow Kerry’s lead. Kerry will have to work much harder this time to ensure that Romney loses this one.
While millions struggle to keep food on the table and gas in the car, this creep and his missus run up extravagant bills for the taxpayers to pay. Disgusting.
When Obummer brings up the 47% tomorrow night, Romney ought to ask him if he’s really that concerned about those folks when he’s run up over a trillion dollar deficit every year, giving taxpayer money to his friends and living like a king.
Second TKO coming. Obama is soft.
This is just like Rocky 3 only in this case Rockey didnt go old school for the rematch.
Obama is going to get blasted again.
Why does an almost 4 year sitting president need to prep?
He should already know the answers because he’s been working the issues.
Oh, wait, what am I saying.....
You’d think the man who has been at the helm of the ship of state the last 3 1/2+ years would know more about what’s going on with the ship during this period, and would need only a minimum refresher to reach the top of his game...
It would be nice if I could afford that for a weekend...
A golf course is a waste of a perfectly good rifle range.
Yes. How do you think it got there in the first place?
Valerie "ferret face" Jarret has to tell him what's being going on these last few years.
“Youd think the man who has been at the helm of the ship of state the last 3 1/2+ years would know more about whats going on with the ship during this period, and would need only a minimum refresher to reach the top of his game...”
That of course, assumes that he would be honest with us. With Dems, I can only think of the Grinch confronted by Betty Lou Who in the real Grinch story (the original. book/cartoon)
“But do you know, that old Grinch was so smart and so slick,
that he thought up a lie and he thought it up quick.”
Yes. How do you think it got there in the first place?
Thank you for your straight-forward response. You are right, of course.
Oh, that’s right...
we Virginia voters are SO easily influenced by him staying at a top notch resort here at tax payers’ expense that “OOOOOOOW! he’ll get MY vote!”
These people have NO brains whatsoever...
And BTW, Kingsmill is a gated community, so the Royal Family won`t be bothered with the presence of the great unwashed... unlss of course they want commoners in the midst for photo ops.
Oh, one more thing... Kingsmill is also the home of would-be Reagan assassin John Hinckley, Jr.
It’s good to be king.
It's attached to his alarm clock.
That lazy, worthless pothead is inherently unable to buckle down and work like most normal people. Recall that shortly after the 2008 election, he complained he hadn’t known the presidency would be so much work. (!!!!)
Shiftless as he is, he’ll tire of “prepping” and head out to the golf course while Romney engages in thorough preparation. My only concern is that the “town hall” will be packed with Obamabots.
As far as Obama is concerned, the only one needing practice here is John Kerry since Kerry's job is to convincingly lose to Obama during the prep.
Can you believe they’re using Longface again after blaming him for the previous loss? LOL
Yo, Barry! Enjoy yourself! You can beat that Mitt Romney jive turkey. You don’t need no prepping. He sucks bad! Thank you for the free phone! I got free phone! Try debating that, you ugly Mormon honkey, you./is that racist?
If Obama brings up Bain outsourcing jobs Romney has his reply:
You Mister President outsourced the security of an American consulate to a foreign company and 4 people are dead.
If only Romney would be that strong. And if he is, the press will be all over him for being “disrepectful” to the president. Of course, they’re going to say that anyway. I just hope enough voters see obama for what he is. I hope enough voters are ashamed of what they did in 2008.
