(CNSNews.com) - Just two days after President Barack Obama gave a sharply edged response to news anchor Larry Conners of KMOV in St. Louis after Conners had asked the president about Americans who get frustrated and even angered when they see the first family jetting around [to] different vacations and so forth, Obama told a panel at the Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia that part of his job there was to scout out locations for a future vacation with First Lady Michelle Obama.
Obama was speaking on a panel with Colombian President Juan Mauel Santos and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff when he made the remarks. The panel was moderated by Chris Matthews of MSNBC.
I want to thank President Santos and the people of Colombia for the extraordinary hospitality in the beautiful city of Cartagena, said Obama. We're having a wonderful time. And usually when I take these summit trips, part of my job is to scout out where I may want to bring Michelle back later for vacation. So we'll make sure to come back sometime in the near future.

His JOB?!? His job is to run the country of the USA, not be employed as travel agent for his wife.
I think they should ban his vacations from now until the end of his ONE AND ONLY term.
I hate this guy as much as the next conservative. But this is clearly him trying to be funny. I give him a pass on this one.
I think he is trying to ridicule the people who have the gall to question his vacationing. He doesn’t have the sense of humor to pull it off, and it just makes people madder.
Not quite; it is predictable, the pattern; later hell make a joke about the vacations and have a good laugh with the media, and then the topic is off limits and the media will ensure that everyone complies. And when complaining about a budget deficit, any non-essential spending of the people’s money is a no-no.
And you can see it was predicted here Friday;
Yep, the pattern; later hell make joke about the vacations and have a good laugh with the media, and then the topic is off limits and the media will ensure that everyone complies.

You said it all. Everything he mutters is SO beneath the office of the Presidency. What a vile disgusting schmuck.
Bet you a $10 donation to FR that this is buried, never heard of again, and Romney won’t touch it with a 10 foot pole.
Send him to Château d’If. For a LONG vacation.
You said it, this guy is such a total dunderhead he can’t even imagine the degree of contempt in which he is held is so many parts of the world.
Even the people he toadies to are a bit put off, saliva-drenched toes are not really that comfortable.
He only said it hoping if he ever came back with the moocher, their hotel would comp him for a free Continental Breakfast.
He’s using AF1 to fly to job interviews.
