$100 Million Trip To Africa? That's Nothing. Obama's Head To Asia For Vacation
GOP - The Daily Dose ^ | 9/15/2013

Posted on 09/15/2013 12:14:11 PM PDT by My Favorite Headache

President Obama will again pivot toward Asia next month with a week-long trip to Indonesia, Brunei, Malaysia and the Philippines, the White House announced Friday.

Obama will be away Oct. 6-12 for a trip that the White House describes as “part of his ongoing commitment to increase U.S. political, economic and security engagement with the Asia Pacific.”

He’ll start the trip in Bali, to attend the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders meeting. He missed last year’s summit in Russia, which came weeks before the presidential election. Depending on the status of Syria talks, the summit could include a showdown between Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin, who’s also expected to attend. Obama will also hold a bilateral meeting with Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Obama will then travel to Brunei for the U.S.-ASEAN Summit, the East Asia Summit (EAS) and a meeting with the Sultan of Brunei, who he hosted at the White House earlier this year. In Malaysia, Obama plans to meet with Prime Minister Najib of Malaysia and to deliver the keynote address to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, an effort Obama launched in 2009 to help promote job creation through entrepreneurship. In the Phillippines, he’ll meet with President Benigno Aquino III “to reaffirm the strong economic, people-to-people, and security links between our two countries,” the White House said.

I think this joker is just trying to spend as much government money as he can while he has the chance. It’s not like there are any pressing issues right here at home for him to deal with, right?

Heaven be thanked President You Didn’t Build That and his lovely wife are setting a fine example by helping solve the nation’s fiscal surplus problem!

Have to admit: I’m angrier at the despicable scumbag’s misuse of our money than I am at the misuse of a comma to form a plural in the title of the thread.

Its ok, he’s a leftist. They can get away trips like these while the fiscal situation is on a downward spiral.

Hal, you gotta lighten up.

The pressure of this POTUS job is like enormous and it has been many days, almost 11 in fact, since any member of the WH ménage has had what one could call a decent vacation. O sure, there's been golf almost every day, but while he's swingin', Barry is like really thinkin' ... working hard for us.

Plus, how can we ignore the domestic pressure ... first Michelle ... then Reggie ... then this Russian guy carrying on about the Syrians? Barry and Reggie just need some time to chill. Michelle needs to fly somewhere else and shop.

I do hope you understand. And, BTW, don't worry about "who's minding the store?" Valerie Jarrett can run the whole government thing by phone.

Prior to yet another tax payer funded trip, Obama is set to address the nation next Wednesday on what great plans he has for the economy.

It’s a known fact that planes with extreme high mileage abuse are prone to develop mechanical problems while on flight....just saying!

I won't go that far, as it would also take out some of the Military good guys. But, a freak well-timed lightning strike on the stairway is another thing!
