Obama decides to break away
from biking and golfing at Martha´s
Vineyard to get back to Washington
in rare vacation break

Associated Press, by Staff

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/17/2014 9:50:01 PM

President Barack Obama is getting off the island. In a rare move for him, the president planned a break in the middle of his Martha´s Vineyard vacation to return to Washington on Sunday night for meetings with Vice President Joe Biden and other advisers on the U.S. military campaign in Iraq and tensions between police and protesters in Ferguson, Missouri. The White House has been cagey about why the president needs to be back in Washington for those discussions. He´s received multiple briefings on both issues while on vacation. The White House had also already announced Obama´s plans to return

One he wants to get away from Michelle, can´t blame him. Two it´s all about optics. It won´t do him any good. No one cares about him any more. He´s President in name only.

As speculated before:

To get Bo, and that other dog they bought.

To pick up Sasha from camp.
To get away from wife
To get away from mother in law
To get his weekly medical treatment.

To pick up more choom, etc

And this was necessary because, why?

There is no such thing as Skype? Barry is actually a president who cares about, well, anything? Joe Biden isn´t borderline retarded so his face to face input is relevant?

No, I´d say Zippy can´t wait to get the heck away from the Mooch, the ten minutes he spent with the daughters exhausted him, and Reggie Love awaits in the Oval Office with a blue dress and a cigar.

Leave it to the Associated Press to shade a headline dishonestly. The headline reads: "...(T)o get back to Washington in rare vacation break." It should read: "...(T)o get back to Washington in rare break from vacation." See? I´ve never seen a president more averse to work. All he seems to do is play and party.

his presidency. He was vacationing at Martha´s Vineyard, flew back to D.C., ordered a bomb to be dropped, then flew back to Martha´s Vineyard.

He´s snorted every ounce of cocaine on the Vineyard, so Obama has got to get back to DC for some mo white powder. Gotta snort, gotta get that line inhaled before he tells the pressies that I´ve got boots on the ground in Iraq. Why do they have to wear boots. Can´t they don golf shores or ballet slippers?

This one is easy. When he returns he´ll have daughter Sasha with him. She missed Week One and was to arrive "later". Can´t have her flyin´ commercial, and having her fly solo in a presidential plane would be bad optics for even the O´s.

Unreal....

He also called foreign leaders to discuss the tensions between Ukraine and Russia, as well as between Israel and Hamas....´I think it´s fair to say there are, of course, ongoing complicated situations in the world, and that´s why you´ve seen the president stay engaged,´ White House spokesman Eric Schultz said.

I´m almost speechless at saying Obama is engaged. To his own ego, perhaps, but certainly not to unfolding dire events both here and overseas.

Were we not told by Obama himself and a few other flunkies that he is always "in touch" with events no matter where he is?

So if he´s so "engaged" and "in touch", and never misses being briefed on important matters, why can´t he do it from the Vineyard?

ANSWER: Someone decided that the optics of Obama´s monumental vacation and golf binges at a time even Hagel characterized as "the world burning", is not a good idea.

Just a guess, but I´m thinking the Democrat Party may have a few things to say about Obama´s utter disregard for world events, for America and for her people.

He had to coordinate the race riots in Ferguson and the political assassination of Rick Perry. Probably wanted to send words of encouragement to his Muslim allies and Commie allies as well. He needed secure communication channels. Could not guarantee that from Marth´a Vinyard. Can´ let word get out!

Close to the mark? With Obama, nothing can be ruled out.

Perhaps his so-called important meetings are just a cover-up for delivering one daughter back to DC and picking up the other to go to Vineyard - and we lucky tax payers get to pay for it. This is a rather strange "family vacation" - it appears that none of them want to spend too much time together.

I agree that b.o. is back in D.C. to pick up his daughter sasha and take her BACK to Marty´s viney after her latest camp adventure. Even THEY understand what a terrible photo-op it would be to have his lil´ daughter fly AF1 by herself, while "common people" (TAX-PAYERS) who pay for their monthly travels, have stay-cations because most can´t afford a REAL vacation like the obamas enjoy monthly. I can´t imagine WHY he would worry about it though, when he has the kind of headlines and dishonest-suck-up coverage from the asse-press "staff" and the rest of the lemmings in the "msm". Sickening.

On Tuesday morning, The View’s “conservative” co-host Nicolle Wallace gave a ringing endorsement for Governor Chris Christie (R-N.J.) should he decide to run for president in 2016. Unfortunately for the New Jersey governor, her reasons for supporting him probably won’t help him win over many Republican primary voters. During a discussion about Chris Christie’s 2016 prospects, Wallace eagerly threw her hat in for the New Jersey Republican and proclaimed that “his politics are an interesting and progressive and modern swath of the country and I’d like to see him in.”

A memorial to slain teenager Michael Brown burned down Monday night, according to Ferguson fire officials. It is not known what caused the fire, though the candles kept lit in vigil around it may be to blame. The memorial was assembled over one month ago at the scene of Brown’s death. Brown, unarmed, was shot during a confrontation by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, an action that catalyzed weeks of protests over racial profiling and the militarization of police. According to MSNBC’s Trymaine Lee, at least one nearby resident suspected foul play: “They light candles every night with no problem,” the

The U.S. launched eight airstrikes Monday night against a little-known, al-Qaida-affiliated militant group in Syria. The United States Central Command said Tuesday morning that American forces hit the Khorasan Group near Aleppo to stop "imminent attack-planning against the United States and Western interests." At a Pentagon press briefing shortly after, defense officials explained just how imminent such an attack may have been. "The intelligence reports indicated that the Khorasan Group was in the final stages of plans to execute major attacks against Western targets and potentially the U.S. homeland," said Lt. Gen.

NEW YORK- Osama bin Laden´s son-in-law was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison for acting as al Qaeda´s spokesman after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. Sulaiman Abu Ghaith was the highest-ranking al Qaeda figure to face trial on U.S. soil since the attacks. The Kuwaiti cleric became the voice of al Qaeda recruitment videos after the 2001 attacks. He testified at trial that his role was strictly religious. Abu Ghaith was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan, who said he saw "no remorse whatsoever" from the 48-year-old imam.

During the Bush administration, national Democrat leaders threatened to kill the ABC network´s broadcast license if a miniseries unfavorable to the Clinton administration wasn´t censored to satisfy Democrats. ABC complied. Earlier this year, Democrats started a push for a Constitutional Amendment to gut (literally) the First Amendment.

The petition to get Limbaugh off the air comes straight from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in the form of a fundraising/petition email. The idea is to use the muscle of the

JERUSALEM — The Israeli military said Tuesday morning that it had shot down a Syrian fighter jet that had “infiltrated into Israeli airspace,” the first such incident in at least a quarter of a century. Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, a military spokesman, said the Patriot air-defense system had intercepted a Russian-made Sukhoi warplaneover the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights around 9:15 a.m. Brig. Gen.

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

Massachusetts National Guard spokesman Lt. Col.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

The man, 42 year-old Omar Gonzalez, had a folding knife in his pocket and had left 800 rounds of ammunition in his car not far from the White House.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable.

Fraternities at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, must start accepting women and all residential fraternities must become fully co-educational over the next three years, the school’s Board of Trustees has ruled. The decision was made “with equality and inclusion in mind,” school President Michael Roth and Trustee Chairman Joshua Boger wrote in an email to students on Monday, Business Insider reported. “Our residential Greek organizations inspire loyalty, community and independence. That’s why all our students should be eligible to join them.” The school has focused on issues with Greek life ever since a woman filed a lawsuit against Wesleyan two years ago

Gen. Michael Nagata is promising to build a new force to destroy ISIS, but lawmakers worry he has been given an impossible mission.
