Obamas Kick Off Long Weekend In Southland
CBS/AP ^ | Friday, June 13, 2014

Posted on 06/14/2014 9:51:30 AM PDT by kristinn

President Barack Obama is spending a long Father’s Day weekend in the desert oasis of Rancho Mirage.

The president and the first lady arrived at the Palm Springs International Airport Friday night after visiting an Indian reservation earlier in the day.

SNIP

The Obamas are staying with White House decorator Michael Smith and his partner, U.S. Ambassador to Spain James Costos, at their vacation home.

The president’s handlers scoped out some golf courses and gave a list to Obama just in case he wants to spend Father’s Day on the links.

SNIP

Obama plans to take a short flight to Orange County Saturday to raise money for the Democratic National Committee at a closed-door event at a private home.

Then he’s scheduled to deliver the UC Irvine commencement address at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. It may be a hot ticket, but some students are giving the ceremony the cold shoulder after organizers issued a long list of what graduates cannot bring into the stadium, including leis and balloons.

The couple has no public events scheduled on Sunday, according to the White House.

Aides also say he’ll be in frequent contact with his national security team for updates on the violence in Iraq.

Wow....the Mideast is on the verge of all out sunni Shiite holy war and he is on a long weekend with the wife.

Imagine if this was a Republican President doing this.

Enjoy yourself Barry, you’ve really earned it.

You work so hard.

Destroying over two centuries of history and tradition is no easy task.

Time to take a load off, kick back, and admire your handiwork.

Isn’t a dad supposed to spend FATHER”S DAY with his kids? Maybe they aren’t his kids.

DroneDaddy is just commiserating with the Iraqis, proving that he too can weather a hot and sandy location where the air is filled with flying objects. I'm sure he believes the Iraqis understand that his golf swing represents the Iraqis' efforts to "strike" back.

I agree-let him play golf all day, every day-we don’t need to help him add anything more to his resume-let the fools who hire him next deal with what is there...

In my opinion everyone attending this meeting while our border is is in chaos for the purpose of tearing down the economy is an absolute scum.

We are literally on the precipice of a worldwide nuclear holocaust and Obama is busy golfing and collecting money from billionaires.

But then I really don’t want Obama making any decisions. Every one he has made to date has been disastrous for the US and the World.

Enjoy your golf game Obozo. The world is better off when you are off.

It’s my day off too. Excuse me while I go and buy some MRE’s and some ammo.

The media can never admit anything is wrong as long as he’s in office. They got him elected, they have propped him up, they have enabled all of this.

To publicize his failures is to admit such problems exist in the soviet state, and that is the one thing they would rather die than do. To publicly admit that anything is wrong.

Terrorist rolling south towards Baghdad, Iranians coming from the south, illegal invaders rolling over our southern boarder, Russian tanks rolling in Crimea, releasing dangerous terrorist for a deserter in violation of our laws so time to chill in the desert with some queers and play golf. You can’t make this stuff up.

Just a quick note before I leave to visit with my 80+ year old father.

I am an avid reader and have been since before I was a teen. In all those years I have enjoyed many types of fiction including Apocalypse and post-apocalypse fiction. And I must say in all due condor that what we are witnessing over the last few years is so much like the prelude to disaster that it isn’t even funny at all.

I like to read, but really now... I really don’t want to star in such a story myself. Unfortunately it seems like the people coordinating this want us all to do that.

Today feels like the last chapter or so before the Boom, crash, bang of the book as it kicks off into high gear. And unfortunately for us all, we can’t put down this book and go do something else for awhile.

It’s easy to see why the Mahdi doesn’t have any problem with Bergdahl deserting his post, since the Mahdi just did the same thing.

Un-freakin’-believable! Well, King Barry said he was going to “consult with his advisors and get back to you, Iraq.” Guess it will have to wait until he is done vacationing. The world is on fire, and the King and Queen of Mean and their entourage are “taking a long weekend” in the lap of luxury. Sucks to be us — and YOU, Iraq! Thanks to all of you Obamites who voted for this incompetent boob!!

“Call me if you need me.”
My Dad had a slightly different take on that saying, and I quote, “If you need me, I’LL call you”, unquote, which I think is much more appropriate for BO.
