December 13, 2013, 01:54 pm Obamas to travel to Hawaii next Friday
By Justin Sink
President Obama and his family will depart for their annual Christmas vacation to Hawaii next Friday evening, press secretary Jay Carney said.
The White House did not disclose the length of the president's trip, although the first family is expected to remain in Obama's home state through the new year.
It should be a more restful vacation for the president than last year.
Obama spent six days in Hawaii in December 2012 before returning to Washington on Dec. 27 as lawmakers continued to debate the "fiscal cliff." Those negotiations took six days, keeping Obama away from his family for New Year's Eve.
I think Hawaii for him is a place where he gets to recharge both physically and emotionally. The schedule is one thats relaxing. The climate is warm like he likes it. And hes surrounded constantly by family and the friends he grew up with, Robert Gibbs, Obamas former press secretary and a longtime adviser, told The Washington Post. Its the perfect elixir for having had a long and busy year in national politics.
The Obamas regularly take two vacations a year the holiday trip to Hawaii and a summer vacation to Martha's Vineyard.
Does anyone know if there is a historical marker or building in Hawaii to commemorate his birthplace? I welcome serious and otherwise replies.
I think it was 2 million in AF1 hours alone.
The Obamas regularly take TWO VACATIONS A YEAR????? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH MORE LIKE 6 or 7!!!!! ALL on OUR DIME because they are too STUPID and CLASSLESS to have their OWN PLACE like the BUSHES and the REAGANS did !!
Still in search of Obama’s birf place.
You’d think the company hired to set up the Obamacare website would have bought Michelle a vacation home by now.
Is there any other president where folks did not recognize and commemorate the birthplace. Where will the CSPAN bus go on it’s visit?
“expected to remain in Obama’s home state”
I thought Illinois was his home state.
Isn’t that nice for them. I’ll be working next Friday so I can pay for an extra day at the beach for mein Fuhrer.
“ALL on OUR DIME because they are too STUPID and CLASSLESS to have their OWN PLACE like the BUSHES and the REAGANS did !!”
Wrong. They have their Chicago home. However, who in their right mind would come to Chicago in the winter, when you can be lolling around on the beach, eat lots of seafood, golf, have all your old friends there, and all on the taxpayer’s dime.
“It should be a more restful vacation for the president than last year.”
Maybe not after that “selfie” stunt he pulled last week.
P.S., in one way I’m glad to see them go off the mainland. Gets rid of them for a few weeks, and gets Obama off the political stage where he has been for just about every day for the last couple of months trying to justify Obamacare, or trying to change the subject from Obamacare. I’m sooooooo sick of both of them, Obama and Michelle of the Darth Vadar stare.
Nothing like the annual Kwanzaa pilgrimage to fire up Caliph Baraq for another year of progressive progress!
Historical marker ahead! LOL!
Bring a mop.
So he’s not going to spend Christmas at the White House. No surprise cuz he hates Christmas.
No doubt to clean up after the Loretta Fuddy hit.
“So hes not going to spend Christmas at the White House. No surprise cuz he hates Christmas.
Class tells; crap smells!
He hates ChristIANS.
and birth certificates for that matter. Except I guess he didn’t like his.
Are they attending Ms. Fuddy’s funeral?
He has to go through a few more trunks to find a better copy of his BIRTH CERTIFICATE.
Fuddy died at the hands of her deputy, not in the crash.-
“In the final moments of her life, Fuddy clung to the hand of her deputy, Keith Yamamoto, while floating in the water. Fuddy, who gained notoriety in 2011 for her role in making President Barack Obama’s birth certificate public, held hands with Yamamoto as he tried to help her relax, said the Rev. Patrick Killilea, who consoled Yamamoto after the ordeal.”= http://www.startribune.com/politics/national/235693081.html
Syringes are fast and easy-
Hawaiian coroners can be bought off, just like deputies.
“’She [Fuddy]let go and there was no response’
The plane had just take off and was about a mile out when there was a bang
Turbulent ocean conditions
will likely prevent recovery of the Makani Kai aircraft...”-
I thought deputy Keith Yamamoto was holding her hand== sounds fishy to me

A 70-year-old survivor of the Makani Kai crash Wednesday said
state Health Director Loretta Fuddy was conscious before he struck out to swim to Kalaupapa.
C. Phillip Hollstein Jr. said he helped everyone out of the plane, was the
last one off, and recalls seeing Fuddy in the water.
“Hollstein says the pilot did a great job maneuvering a water landing. He says the nine
people aboard calmly put on life jackets and bobbed in the water.
Hollstein says he took off swimming when he believed everyone else was OK.
He says State Health Director Loretta Fuddy did not seem distressed or hurt during the crash
and water evacuation. She later died.”
The company’s daily flights to Kalaupapa — two from Oahu and one from Molokai Airport -
- will continue even though Makani has lost its only backup plane, Schuman said.
Before the crash the air carrier had three in its fleet, using one as a backup.
Makani Kai took over flying to Kalaupapa nearly three years ago.
The aircraft had a valid operating certificate and the company said it had NEVEER HAD AN ACCIDENT in its more than 20-year history.
“Weve been providing air charter, air tours, aircraft management and aircraft maintenance

obama is the only President who spends his Christmas holidays away from Washington D.C. every year, from at least J.F.K. Nixon spent one in California, but I think his daughter was getting married. Clinton spent one at Hilton Head N.C. and one in Kosovo.
obamas defenders will immediately say, well Hawaii is where he is from. Well, yeah, every other president was from somewhere else as well.
The Bushes said they do not leave D.C. out of respect for their staff and Secret Service members families. obama clearly only cares about himself.
The other vacations don't count? What a load of bovine excrement.
Can they fly on a Cessna Grand Caravan?
Maybe they are waiting until they are out of office!!! I know I CAN’T WAIT!!!
If they feel the need to insert that, it may mean that Sheriff Joe is having some small impact.
