Obama and family arrive in
Hawaii for Christmas

Associated Press, by Matthew Daly

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/22/2012 8:52:44 AM

KAILUA, Hawaii- President Barack Obama and his family have arrived in Honolulu to spend Christmas in Hawaii, where the president was born and raised. Air Force One touched down in Honolulu minutes after midnight local time on Saturday. The first family departed the plane and traveled quickly to their vacation house in the beach town of Kailua, a scenic, sleepy beach town on the east side of Oahu. Kailua is roughly 12 miles from downtown Honolulu. Obama´s vacation house sits near a Marine base, on the north end of a five-mile stretch of beach popular among windsurfers and paddle surfers.

Oh good! More shots of them in my Match magazine, showing what a normal family they are, avoiding all that Christian stuff.

So glad he can take his well-deserved vacation, after so ably taking care of our country´s financial crisis! I can now make my tax planning intelligently, and can finish my estate planning, knowing precisely what the estate tax will be. s/o

The whole bunch needs to be fired for incompetence and dereliction of duty. Now they´ll come back after Christmas, do a little patch to push things forward a few months, and we sucker taxpayers will once again have to deal with total unknowns and uncertainties.

I do hope flapears and the linebacker enjoy their costly unnecessary vacation on the islans. He and his dumb family have a wonderful time on our dollars and I am just dying to see the family surf boarding and swimming with the sharks. Would be too bad if something bad happened. Sharks do not care what they eat.

The media have gone decades without revealing they are on Air Force One as well (or in a trailing plane). In many cases the reporters´ families are along.

It´s a dog and pony show.

The big difference here is that Mitt would not have gone but if he did it would have been on his own dime.

´Obama’s round-trip flight to Hawaii on Air Force One is estimated to be the largest expense associated with the vacation. According to the Air Force, it apparently costs $181,757 per flight hour to run the nation’s most secure (and probably its most lavish) aircraft. Thus, the total for the nine-hour trip from Washington to Hawaii and then back again will come in at $3,271,611.´

How many armed guards for schools in CT could that buy? Hmm.

Someone should have edited that opening sentence to read more truth:where the president was not born and only partly raised.Insert: he may later visit Mombasa, Kenya, his birthplace.

It´s going to be two round trips - he said that he´d be going back to D.C. next week and then undoubtedly back to Hawaii a second time. Meanwhile, the flight crews and security people are missing Christmas with their families. I despise Ø more and more with each passing day.

This excessive travel is going to require maintainance on everything on and in that plane, which we have the privilege of paying for too.

The entire cost of the presidency last year was 1.4 billion, divide by 365, equals 3,8 million PER DAY. No matter where urkel is or what he is doing.

Meanwhile the small forest of Christmas trees in the White House will be disassembled by the White House Christmas Decorators Union. They will work overtime { standard procedure} repacking half a million dollars of historic ornaments, some of which will just disappear. Then they will draw unemployment until early December of 2013

I recall that back during Jimmy Carters presidency, he canceled the 747 transition, because it was too costly.
Two presidents, in my memory, have squandered large amounts of taxpayer money on their various vacations - Bill Clinton, and the Kenyan Klown.
But I ask this question - am I the only one who does not want to read anything about President Zero and his family? I have no interest in finding out about his latest outrage. Just how arrogant is it for the president, at a time when the U.S. is on a financial cliff, to wander off to that vile isle?

Shaved ice, swims, and enjoying the beach.

I would add Obama free newscasts on AM radio stations and no articles from the AssPress in the local fishwrap. Could we just fire the MSM/LSM because they´re not serving us very well. I was thinking I could listen to news again, to Fox TV and maybe read some newspapers. Nope. It´s on hold again for another four years. Beans! He just makes me ill and my blood pressure rise.

Not so fast, AP. You need to fact-check that lead sentence? "...born... in Hawaii"? I don´t think so. Modern journalsim moves so fast that there is no time for fact-checking, I spose.

May Stinky and Mizzuz Stinky have a miserable vaction in Hawaii. May they have all the misfortunes possible(short of those that would result in a knock at my front door by the Secret Service, of course) on their FOUR-MILLION-DOLLAR vacation on the backs of suffering taxpayers.

SANTA FE, N.M. —A national political magazine has released secret audio recordings of Gov. Susana Martinez, and it’s causing quite a reaction both here in New Mexico as well as across the country.Mother Jones penned an article recently that asked if Martinez was the next Sarah Palin. The article featured several recordings of the governor. Some believe what Martinez is heard saying could jeopardize her political aspirations. The recordings were published by Mother Jones, who said they’re from four years ago. The reporter said his article sheds light on a side of Martinez the public has never seen before, a

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
