Obama Hopes for Trouble-Free Hawaii Vacation (AP barf alert)
AP via Christian Science Monitor ^ | Josh Lederman

Posted on 12/22/2013 2:28:25 PM PST by kristinn

SNIP

The president, first lady Michelle Obama, daughters Sasha and Malia, and first dogs Sunny and Bo hopped an overnight flight Friday aboard Air Force One to Honolulu, where they were whisked by motorcade to a beachside home in Kailua, a sleepy suburb with a five-mile stretch of beach popular among windsurfers and tourists.

SNIP

The president has no public events scheduled during his vacation, which is expected to last through Jan. 5. In previous years, frequent golf outings have accompanied trips to local restaurants and other island outings.

SNIP

Conditions seem ripe this year for a few weeks of interrupted family time. Obama did spend part of Saturday morning conferring with top national security aides about the situation in South Sudan, where U.S. military aircraft evacuating Americans from the violence-plagued African nation came under gunfire and had to divert to Uganda. The White House said four U.S. troops were injured in that incident.

Throughout his vacation Obama will continue to get regular briefings from advisers traveling with him, White House officials said. Obama and his supporters were hoping those routine updates wouldn't interfere with regular rounds of golf and family outings for shave ice, the Hawaii version of a snow cone.

"I don't want any interruptions. He deserves a vacation," Brian Pritchett, an assistant principal visiting from Mount Vernon, N.Y., said as he sipped a rum-infused drink dubbed the "Obama Mama" at a Honolulu hotel. "He puts in too many hours to not have his vacation with his family. I know that's what I would do."

What kind of puff ball title story is this? Can anyone remember similar puff pieces written about George W?

Is this a new austerity program?

I wonder where this idiot is getting this information from?

i believe we all, wherever we are , must be on the lookout for any false flag attack going on while he’s on vacation.

I always get a laugh when Mark Levin reads the president's daily schedule published on the WH website, which usually reads like this:

10:30 am - state dept briefing

1:00 pm - photo op & lunch w/ PM of Cloud CooCoo Land

2:30 - fundraiser at State Plaza Hotel

This bastard has got the easiest gig in the nation, given the perks.

Well, he did manage to golf in the first day with his childhood buddy. You may have to do some clicking to catch it all.

Trouble free?

Seriously?

Trouble free is not having to find a job (even part-time, which is all there is now).

Trouble free is not having to find health insurance, which he and his cronies don’t have to worry about.

Trouble free is not having to worry about keeping your job, with the cutbacks and down-sizing (due to Obamacare).

Trouble free is not having to worry about what the media is saying about you - having them all eating out of the palm of your hand is very....well, handy.

Trouble free is being able to spend all the money you want, on yourself and your entourage. Never a worry about the bill coming in.

This arrogant, pompous traitor should stay away. At least when he’s gone, America is temporarily trouble free.

An earlier post suggested that Hawaii should not have become the 50th state - if you drop it now, he may have to present a passport.

Today, Barry has spent about $235349.12 on his Christmas vacation. Not to worry though. He’s paying for it out of his own pocket...with our money.

That is interesting. He would have to provide a passport.

I wonder which one of the two dozen or more Social Security numbers he stole did he use to get his passport?

He had one when he went to Kenya and Malaysia under his real name Barry Sotero.

He didn't have his magic mojo back then where he is able to make people do stuff just cause they think he is their Messiah.

Passport is now expired. It sure would be interesting to look at now.

Obama probably has the older daughter Malia (?) watch Fox for him. Malia then reports (in cursive) back to Mommy, who filters the news even more, making it almost digestible for Obama’s delicate condition.

I almost vomited when I read “He puts in too many hours” from some dummy tourist from New York. Interfere with his golf games? NOTHING interferes with his golf games.

I’ll never understand why blacks and poor people will support people like this and actually believe they care about them.

I believe the MSMerda is not reporting about the Obama vacation to keep the discontent down. Prior vacations have been non-stop BS Barak doing this, saying that, seeing them, kissing some ones ass, some one kissing his ass.,etc,.

“For shave ice, the Hawaii version of a snow cone..........”

“Why, hello Mr. President!”

“So, how does this shave ice gig work?”

“People walk up and order the flavor they want. You take a cup and shave some ice and put it in the cup. You pour the flavoring over the ice. You take the customer’s money and give him change back if he has any coming. You give the customer the shave ice. Would you like to try your hand at selling some?”

“Sure!”

“Why....you’re President Obama!”

“Yep. Here’s your shaved ice.”

“Ummmmm....you didn’t ask what flavor I wanted, and that is a shoe.”

“Nope. It’s a shaved ice. I went to Harvard. I would know the difference between a shoe and shaved ice.”

“It has shoelaces.”

“Those are just special ice holders.”

“Thanks.....I guess.”

“So, Mr. Manager, how did I do with my first shaved ice sale?”

“You peed in the cup, threw the ice on the ground, poured syrup on the customer’s head, gave him a shoe, and took no money. I lost money and I lost a customer.”

“Capitalism never works, does it. Here’s some foodstamp cards. Vote Democrat!”

Well, all he has to do is let other people do all the planning. He needs to keep his hands out of it.

See, it's because everything he touches turns to crap.

With no public activities scheduled for his Hawaii vacation, that gives Barry a free hand to cruise the beaches for some good looking gay stud muffins. He entertains his boy toys to the cabana buy the pool and Moochie gets to indulge her inner shopper. Hawaii is perfect for his repressed lusts.
