Obama to jet off on two-week Martha´s
Vineyard vacation despite launching
airstrikes in Iraq and fresh battles in Gaza

Daily Mail (UK), by Francesca Chambers

Original Article

Posted By:pineledger, 8/9/2014 5:25:10 AM

President Barack Obama will embark on a previously planned two-week vacation to Martha´s Vineyard tomorrow regardless of the violence in Iraq and Gaza. Even as the first military airstrikes he authorized in northern Iraq were carried out Friday, Obama did not cancel the trip. (Snip)In 2009, Obama remained on vacation in his native of Hawaii after a man aboard a Detroit-bound flight tried to detonate a bomb on Christmas. Obama also continued on with Martha´s Vineyard vacations in 2010 as rebels in Libya were on the verge of ousting their government, and last year when Egypt´s military overthrew the country´s

Because he cares - he vacations.
Because he inspires - he vacations.
Because he heals the world - he vacations.

I am happy to stand corrected, but I seem to remember that it took Obama THREE DAYS to comment on the Detroit bomber -

and people say that he seems distracted nowadays..........

All I can say is GWB never played a round of golf after 9/11, when we sent troops in harm´s way. It wasn´t because of the bad "optics" of doing so - it was because it was the RIGHT thing to do. A game he loved, one that could have greatly reduced the stress he had taken on, but he didn´t do it.

Class shows. Reverence for the Office and responsibilities inherent in holding such a position. Solidarity with the country and our values, such as they were at the time.

Zippy shows NONE of these characteristics. Dangerous pathological narcissist.

You would think that the Daily Mail would have realized by now that Obama does not care about anyone or anything except Obama. If there were 40,000 American Christians trapped on a barren US mountain, facing either starvation or death by the Mexican drug gang that chased them there, Obama would still fly to the Vineyard today. And, ABC, CBS, NBC and the NY Times and the AP would be breathlessly telling us that "The president is closely following the plight of the families trapped on the rocks and cliffs. He plans on discussing the situation on Monday when his HHS, EPA and WH staff assemble on the Vineyard, weather permitting."

Sociopaths do not have feelings, empathy or a heart.

Everything he does is calculated to distract from what he is really doing. I think he is doing everything he can to keep the Press from talking about the amnesty bill he is about to sign which will open the flood gates to the illegals on our southern border. He is going to slip back to DC with Valerie and use his pen while Congress is out of town. The Press is distracted with the "humanitarian" gestures in Iraq and the bombs being dropped on Isis convoys. This man is evil not caring a whit about anything but himself and getting rid of our Republic.

GWB loves his country. President Smidgen loves himself and Islam.

Does the left really have not one molecule of shame? Zippy should have been forced to resign years ago.

What is the left going to do when the brutality engulfing the ME comes here? Oh, I forgot. Zippy said that we could absorb another terrorist attack. What if it´s a nuke set off in the middle of DC? Can we absorb that?

The meme that Obama is always keeping tabs on events while he is playing on the golf course or flitting about the globe on our dime is a myth. He has told his Staff to "handle it".

Only when the press reaches critical mass will he make some sort of futile gesture to shut everyone up.

Notice how Immigration has now been kicked off the front pages now that Obama has "ordered air strikes"? What a laugh. He ordered the most perfunctory gesture just to get fellow Democrats who know how bad this looks off his back.

Yo. Obama. What about the Christians stuck on the mountain? Or is it only the Yahoodis you care about?

I take that back. He cares about nothing but hisveryownself. If America doesn´t like that, well they can stick it up their ballot boxes.

By all means, ´dear leader´, have a wonderful vacation. Everything is going swimmingly - just peachy - and we know you need some R&R after getting everything in order (nationally and internationally) before you leave.

You´ll be prancing around while being adored and worshipped, Michelle will be scarfing down everything she can get her hands on, you´ll be dancing around the golf course looking so adorable and carefree in your little golf outfits - with not a worry in the world. You are just one lucky guy, aren´t you, Barack!

Of all the places in the USA where B & M and their family could vacation, I have always wondered why they pick Martha´s Vineyard.

Don´t they have a home in Hawaii? He should go back to Oahu and "thrill" the voters there, and, thus, give the mainlanders a break from his "royal" presence.

God only knows, we need a break from Barry and the Mooche - and I bet that, down deep, the Massachusetts residents are quietly glad when he leaves. Having lived in the Mass./RI vicinity in the late 1960´s, the residents there aren´t impressed by people who have no class - it´s a New England mentality.

Washington--In a get-to-know-you visit fraught with awkward undertones, President Obama and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India sought to repair a strained relationship between their nations on Tuesday, emerging with expressions of good will but little in the way of concrete deals. (Snip)Mr. Modi sat in front of an empty plate and had warm water for dinner while Mr. Obama and the two leaders’ entourages ate avocados and goat cheese, crisped halibut and basmati rice, a pumpkin crème brûlée and a California chardonnay.

The Obama administration was grilled on Monday for inviting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to a state dinner while he is fasting as part of a Hindu religious observance, a move that has been criticized by some as insensitive. Obama will host Modi Monday evening at the White House “for a private dinner” that will also be attended by Vice President Joe Biden, the White House announced Monday morning. The event is closed to the press. However, the administration appears to have forgotten that Modi is in the middle of carrying out a religious fast in observance of the Hindu

Fierce fighting has been reported on the outskirts of Baghdad where ISIS militants are attempting to seize control of the Iraqi capital - despite ongoing Western airstrikes against the terror group. The fighting is taking place just one mile to the west of the city, with government forces desperately trying to hold off the militants, who allegedly killed up to 1,000 soldiers during clashes yesterday. ISIS have held a number of towns and villages close to the Iraqi capital since earlier in the year, when government troops melted away following a lightning advance in the west of the country -

As the midterm campaigns heat up, Democratic candidates are turning to the White House for help and an injection of star power. But it is the first lady, not President Barack Obama, ?who in some places is emerging as the more sought-after campaigner. Some Democrats contend that Mr. Obama´s sagging popularity limits where he would be helpful this election cycle. Bringing higher approval ratings and a less-partisan pitch, Michelle Obama already has hit the trail, appearing earlier this month in Georgia with Senate candidate Michelle Nunn. Next month, the first lady´s campaign travel will include a visit to Iowa, where

President Barack Obama insisted on Wednesday that he would not send ground troops into Iraqi combat zones to fight the ISIS terrorist army, directly contradicting his top general who said a day earlier that the president asked him for boots-on-the-ground recommendations ´on a case-by-case basis.´ (Snip)´As your commander-in-chief,´ Obama insisted, ´I will not commit you and the rest of our armed forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq.´ On Tuesday, however, Joint Chiefs chairman Gen.

Yet Obama is not going after terrorists in radical mosques. And he´s making it harder for local governments to stop the construction of recruiting and training centers for the enemy.

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control.

At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

threat to America than any terror group -

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

First lady Michelle Obama believes that Democrats running for Congress eagerly desire her presence on the campaign trail during the run-up to the 2014 midterm elections. However, she has avoided helping some Senate Democrats because she’s mad at them for failing to show adequate support for her deeply unpopular attempt to change people’s diets. The Daily Caller is not making this up. The New York Times has reported it. (Snip) Michelle Obama was also especially furious after nearly a dozen Democrats from states where potatoes are a commercial crop joined Republican lawmakers in opposing a decision by the Obama
