Report: Hawaii preparing for Obama visit

By DONOVAN SLACK | 11/29/12 10:48 AM EST

White House Dossier's Keith Koffler reports on what could be a very touchy Christmas vacation:

President Obama is reportedly scheduled to be vacationing in Hawaii on January 2, the date billions in spending cuts – and untold consequences for the economy – will kick in if a deal is not reached on the “fiscal cliff.”

According to the Hawaii Reporter, residents who live in the area of Oahu where Obama and his family vacation have been told that the usual restrictions on their movements during an Obama stay will be in place for 21 days, from December 17 through January 6.

The White House has not officially announced the vacation, and it is unclear if the travel plans are finalized or if the Obamas will be in Hawaii for the entire three-week window covered by the restrictions.

In past years, the president has stayed behind in Washington negotiating with Congress, while first lady Michelle Obama and their daughters went ahead to Hawaii

And they have to kick everyone off the beach so his heinous can have an unobstructed view of the ocean without being troubled by the plebian people.
After all, the patricians know so much better than us.

The good news is he’ll be gone by the time I get there. The bad news is his island population of worshippers will remain.

I hope he goes over to Hawaii and visits the lava flow from the water line below it.

I would just love to be living over there and have some jerk come and tell me my movement is restricted because his highness is going to be near by. Seems to me that is imprisonment or taking of something without compensation.

This scumbag spends more taxpayer money on himself then a monarch. I have one thing I wish for, don’t go away happy Ozero, Just go away.

So the communist savior and lord, and messiah, will be in Hawaii at our expense during the apocalypse? And just a quick flight to Indonesia when the trouble starts.

The Marxist a-hole cares about nothing but himself, first last and always. Why so many stupid idiots in this country can’t see that is beyond me.

“Why so many stupid idiots in this country can’t see that is beyond me.”

A good due portion of them can’t see through the 70 plus inches of dirt covering them.
The rest are just zombie chowder waiting to be chewed on.

I am sure he will stay behind to make it look like he is feverishly working. Meanwhile the rest of the tribe will have to have its own jet service to their vacation and BS will arrive a day later at additional expense to the taxpayers.

Oh, I got it! (LOL! wink! wink!) Whenever my liberal family members and friends (of which there are very few...liberal friends, that is) want to feign indignance over comments made by Todd Akin and/or Richard Mourdock during their campaigns, I remind them of ol' Hank Johnson and how, with total/complete straight face, expressed concern for the potential of Guam tipping over. Of course, they insist that's not true, for how could that be since they've never heard about it. But, boy oh boy! They sure hear non-stop, round-the-clock whenever a conservative or Republican goofs up.

'Nough said!

I showed my family the video of ol’ Hank re: Guam. My 16 yo daughter laughed and then was amazed that none of her friends had heard of it and, like your lib friends, insisted nobody in congress could be THAT stupid. :)

Thanks for “liking” “ME!” Re: ol’ Hank...didn’t those coming to his defense try to blame his “stupidity” on some sort of “brain” related medical problem, or some such, to explain away his incoherence? (for lack of a better word)

yes, his spokesman mumbled something about “his medication”... funny thing. I’ve been on some strong painkillers in the past (well, and in the present) and they’ve never tricked me into believing an island could sink. :) :) :)

“And these folks," Johnson said, "are setting up a scenario where they’re privatizing every aspect of our lives as we know it. So, wake up! Wake up! Let’s look at what’s happening. We need a constitutional amendment to allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations.”

Wow. Karl Marx couldn't have said it any better. Beware anything NOT run by the Gub'mint!

These people are truly frightening.

Aren’t Christmas holiday vacations in Hawaii something that Americans look forward to for years & make plans months ahead of time?

Now- your once-in-a-lifetime trip will be restricted by Obama deciding to be there for 21 days?

How much financial impact will this be on the tourist business in Hawaii?

Selfish bastard.

As if he cares about anything but power and ice cream cones. If he stays behind, it will cost another 4-5 million bucks to cary Moose and her entoursage. Besides, tying up traffic is his forte'!
