President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will depart Friday at noon for a vacation weekend in Asheville, N.C. But their two daughters, Sasha and Malia, are staying home.
The Obamas regularly visit the presidential retreat at Camp David on weekends, but when they do, it's always as a family, which includes the first lady's mother, Marian Robinson, who lives at the White House.
The first couple has no publicly scheduled events during the getaway, but according to NBC's Chuck Todd, a White House staffer suggested to the president that he could use the trip to meet with potential Supreme Court nominees outside of Washington. Obama nipped that idea in the bud, "Don't you even think about it," the president said.
How nice for them to be on never-ending vacation....
Lord forbid he do anything other than making endless speeches, vacationing, or alienating allies.
I wonder how much this is costing us and what the real purpose of the trip is.
exactly what i was thinking....did the bushes spend this much time vacationing and traveling for personal reasons....seems this putz is never in his office actually working...he is either vacationing or campaigning...
The First Lady’s Mother lives in the White House???
Maybe its for the porpoise of mating. eww gross
going for a record in burning fuel for the earth day week
burned 9000 gal on earth day itself
I’m sure something’s up.
Anyone check the schedules for Soros, Ayers, Dohrn, Dunn, Bauer, Axelrod, Wright, Rahm and his brother Zeke, Saudi Prince Alwaleed?
It’s either a marriage encounter week-end or a Marxist seminar retreat.
To get some.
She does. And if Obammie gets outta line at home....
She smacks him down with a frying pan.
I live not far from the area and report that the Sheeple have gone crazy for their would be King. Where they are staying is a place 90% of Americans would not be able to afford to stay at. They personify the “ME GENERATION”. It’s all about them, let everyone else eat cake. Maybe they can attend one of the local Bible believing Churches, this Sunday in the area and “Get Saved”. A term they probably never heard Jeremiah Wright preach.
Anything to shake the mantle of the presidency.
Really? I think I can remember only one time that I read that they would be going to Camp David.

They will feel right at home with the tree huggers, star gazers, witches, crystal lickers, gays, lesbians, and everything else that drags itself into the area. And yes the millionaires who will be at the Grove Park Inn as well. Someone put Asheville like this “a liberal enclave in the western conservative section”. The values of Asheville are by no means reflected in the surrounding towns or counties. They may plan on visiting the Biltmore Estate to pattern themselves a home after it. Those terrible capitalists the Vanderbilt’s.
I’m sure they didn’t but the collectivist media was breathing down the Bushes’ throats, counting EVERY second he was on “vacation” -— even if it was a working vacation. Now, these bozos have free reign to be on chronic ACTUAL, non-working vacations!!
thinking of the Obamas living in the white house brings visions of the beverly hillbillies.
obama sitting there practicing his guzintuses.
Romantic weekend, eh? Must be the weekend he suppresses his homosexual tendencies.
We can only pray there will be no pictures.
Sheesh...all this guy does is fly here and there....play golf...and destroy the Republic.
mountainboy, I understand that a popular local bumper sticker is “Keep Ashville Weird”. Perfect.
