RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (AP) It's perhaps appropriate that President Barack Obama is vacationing this weekend in California, where the state flag features a roaming grizzly. The restless president, who has compared himself to a caged animal on recent wanderings by declaring the "bear is loose," took a long Father's Day weekend away with his wife and older daughter.
The visit to the desert resort area of Palm Springs is one of the ways Obama has been trying to escape during his sixth year cloistered in the White House. "I think frankly we've all been through a cold and bitter winter and the bear has cabin fever," said Obama friend and senior adviser Valerie Jarrett. "His cabin is a little bit bigger and harder to escape than most."
Obama has fantasized about being "on a beach somewhere drinking out of a coconut" or simply being able to walk out of the White House gate and stroll around unrecognized. Obama has golfed every weekend since Washington's weather got clear enough to allow it in April, save a week when he was in Asia. Those close to Obama say his frequent golf outings are less about a love of the game than a desire to take a long walk outside. Obama also has been seen walking the darkened White House grounds, late into the evening, sometime with one of his dogs.

Problem is - he doesn’t know he is in one.
Probably Smoking. I'm just not sure what.
Obama also has been seen walking the darkened White House grounds, late into the evening,...
BS. What a load of bull!
Well, before he leaves he’d better delete his browser history ((shudder)))
Hey, I’ve got an idea, resign! Then spend the rest of your life in La La land and leave us the hell alone.
I think he loves the Perks, he just doesn’t want the work and responsibility that goes along with them.
Utter bullcrap. This man and his beast of a wife have gone out of their ways to appear in every cultural event, magazine, television show, and media event in the nation. They love it.
And poor Obama. So wore out from all his vacations, 4 hour work days, golf, fundraising ...BOO HOO
Palm Springs is a bubble. A little green spot in the middle of a wasteland. He must look out at all the desolation surrounding that place and yearn for a few more years to make all of America look like that.
Give it up, Nedra, his rep is beyond a PR patch job. He needs a long weekend when any body else with the crises he has to manage would be buried in national security meetings? Give him $100 million and have him abdicate, fly to his favorite beach and stay there.
What is this, his 20th vacation in 2014 alone. ISIS is closing in on Baghdad beheading people on the way, MS-13 gangs are invading from Mexico, what to do, what to do? Hey I know, let’s take another vacation.
Yeah, he’s Obaprha.
Come to think of it, in Chris Wallace’s interview with Mike Rogers on Iraq/ AlQuaeda today, I’m not sure Obama’s name even came up. I’m sure Kerry, Hagel and Rice were not mentioned. The Zero team.
And I'll bet you a million to one that he's still smoking.
Never mind the patch report. He's probably selling those via a broker in Chicago....at the local schools. Some dealers never stop.
Mark Levin reads Obamas schedule every now and then on his show, and it’s amazing what this guy does which is virtually nothing, it’s usually something like this:
11am - 12 noon: Meeting with Senior advisor. 2pm to 5pm: Fundraiser. 6pm travel to New York city for fundraiser.
So basically what he does is work an hour or two a day then goes to parties, then starts another vacation every 2 - 4 weeks.
Hey Mr. President. We need one more for a foursome.
“Is that golf we are talking about?”
I refuse to soil the name of the office by using it for him.
From now on he’s Famous Amateur Golfer (FAG)
Last I heard about his schedule, there were days that only had lunch blocked out and then jetting off to a fundraiser in the afternoon.
It’s a JOB, not party time. WHO IS RUNNING THIS COUNTRY??!!!
given how bad his golf score is, there may be some truth to that. if i golfed that much i would get much better. but i wouldn't be too arrogant to get lessons and ask for advice or too lazy to practice.
Nobody, nobody thinks it was a good idea for Obama to go golfing and fundraising this weekend. So, why did he do it? Because he was told to. And it isn’t Michelle telling him.
Obama is a grizzly bear??
Now that’s funny!!!
Obama is an yappy neutered chihuahua.
Impeachment is one way.
He’s been Bubble Boy since birth.
Easy solution. He can resign.
Ganja. He’s the groundskeeper.
Since “bear” is a slang term for hairy gay male, was he referring to Kal or Reggie?
Reminds me of the day of the Inaugural after the swearing in I guess both of them he axed someone where and or what do I do next ?
A drug Dog let loose at the White House would probably FREAK OUT
How could anyone write such crap.
“Bull” is right. If some casual observer could spot the president wandering the White House grounds so could a potential assassin. The Secret Service, despite all it's recent problems, wouldn't allow this.

...but then again...
This is bad, even by AP’s lower standards. Tiger Beat might even say it was too fawning for them.
He feels like a caged bear? Unfortunately, he let a bear wake up and that bear is threaten its old territory.
That's exactly right. He doesn't want to be president. He just wants to be a celebrity.
....and the imprisoned Marine is only a hundred or so miles from Rancho Mirage — not that this enters Zer0’s head.
The Dude has no verifiable history.
“In California, Obama has worked out mornings at a gym near the Rancho Mirage home where the first family is staying with White House decorator Michael Smith and his partner, James Costos, the American ambassador to Spain.”
Obamas Staying with Gay Couple in California
U.S. Embassy in Madrid flies rainbow-colored flag in honor of LGBT day
He is staying overnight at the home of his interior decorator and his partner, Michael Smith, who he also had labeled the White House interior decorator. According to Obama himself, “I think frankly we’ve all been through a cold and bitter winter and the bear has cabin fever”. When freed from the White House environment, he exclaims, “the bear is loose”.
Ergo, he is staying at the gay couple’s house “to let the bear out” or to return to his “bear cave”. Maybe it’s just gay-speak.
Obama looks gay, no matter what he is doing.
