Obama-vacation

President and Mrs. Obama will be vacationing after all, despite the escalating crisis in the Crimean peninsula of Ukraine. And for good measure, so will Vice President Joe Biden.

On Thursday, it looked as though events in Ukrainian were going to spoil the Obama’s long Florida weekend vacation plans, but the White House announced, not so fast.

The Obamas will be staying on in Key Largo, Fla., while Biden will be relaxing by the pool with tropical drink in hand in the Virgin Islands, according to Fox News.

“The president over the course of a very busy week has maintained his schedule and his ability to monitor ongoing events in Ukraine. I would anticipate that he’ll do the same thing this weekend,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. “And the fact of the matter is what the president is doing this weekend in Florida is essentially what the president will be doing if he stayed back at the White House. It’s just that the weather will be a little warmer.” 

The entire family will be enjoying the facilities available to them in the keys.

“There are some recreational amenities on the property, including workout facilities, tennis courts, a couple of golf courses,” he noted. 

Fox reported:

Meanwhile, a military truck broke down the gates of a Ukrainian base in the Crimean port city of Sevastopol and the installation was under siege by pro-Russian troops on Friday, the Interfax news agency reported. No shots have been fired. 

About 100 Ukrainian troops are stationed at the base, Interfax reported, citing a duty officer and Ukraine’s defense ministry. 

In the week since Russia seized control of Crimea, Russian troops have been neutralizing and disarming Ukrainian military bases on the Black Sea peninsula. Some Ukrainian units, however, have refused to surrender.

    So when you say that hell be doing the same thing on vacation as he would be doing in the White House you mean, NOTHING, RELAXING, IGNORING AMERICANS, IGNORING PROBLEMS, MAKING AMERICA LOOK WEAK, WASTING TAX DOLLARS, PLAYING KING, PLAYING GOD, OR TRYING TO DESTROY AMERICA? Which one, or is it ALL OF THE ABOVE?

      The United States spends more in military then the next 9 countries combined. It’s not like Obama is sitting next to the button if something goes wrong. Plus dont forget Bush ignored the 911 attacks threats on our HOMELAND while he was on vacation, it’s not like Russia is invading the U.S. In a matter of fact, we need to stop wasting our tax payer money and STOP being the police for the WORLD. I’m sick of paying tax…

            You present no facts. Just lies and insults. You don’t matter.

          • Jerry

            Nor does he ever comment on your point. Don’t waste too many comments on him. He will go back and forth days after the article gets stale. He will run down your up vote to comment ratio down as low as his. He averages 161 down votes for every up vote he receives. I did a count on him last month. Since then BPR pulled the down vote count off the comments.

          • curmudgeon

            Then try using some. Just because you read it in Salon, Mother Jones or the Huffington Post does not make something a fact. Seems even a besotted liberal like yourself could understand something that simple.

          • Richard F

            No much more than that.. but instead you show NOTHING.. God Bless.

      • Penny Crosson

        On 9/11 Bush was visiting a school and talking to the elementary students there. You must’ve missed the photo of him receiving the news of the attacks. Not only was he not on vacation, not ignoring the attacks and not romping with the family while the towers fell, he quit playing golf after the attacks because he felt it gave the wrong message that he was goofing off as our country was under siege and our military was going to war. Think Obama would even consider giving up golf as a morale builder? Think again!

        • Mama62

          Well while people in New Orleans were drowning he was on vacation. After 3 days he decided to give a look and then sent an idiot to help. Please this vacation nonsense is getting so very old.

          • LittleRoot_48

            Gov. Blanco and the Mayor Nagin of the “chocolate city” have plenty of the blame for the fiasco that was Hurricane Katrina. Why didn’t they utilize those school buses to get those people out?

          • Mama62

            Ray Nagin is an idiot. Gov Blanco did a fabulous job getting people out of Louisiana days before the storm hit. She never gets credit for the thousands of lives she saved. All anyone remembers is the disagreement she had over the La National Guard and not wanting to give up control and on that she was exactly correct. I lived through this mess and I know what I am talking about. declared a state of emergency for the state and it was up to the individual Mayors to take control of their situations. Ray Nagin is the one who failed at the local level. That does not excuse the fact that 3 days passed before people stranded on roof tops and dying of exposure in the heat and the filth, with no food or water did not get help from the federal government. We do better for people in foreign countries than we did for the people of New Orleans. And yes, President Bush was on vacation at the time. I don’t blame him for going on vacation, but I do blame him for not coming back immediately once the storm hit. He was told by the weather people what was coming and he didn’t even have things staged to get in as soon as possible. If it had not been for the direction of Gov Blanco using the local national guards, the state police, Wildlife and Fisheries and local people who evacuated people in their own boats, thousands more would have died waiting on Bush to do the right thing. He didn’t do it on purpose or want people to die. BUt he had eviscerated FEMA and used their money for the Department of homeland security. Then he appointed the fool as director who had 0 experience with disaster management. Mr. Brown sat in the safety of the only area in the city not flooded and ate dinner while people were dying. If you ever live through a disaster of this magnitude, you will understand. As for the buses, there were buses, but the drivers had all left town before the storm. There was no fuel either once the city was flooded. Nagins fault, not the Gov. Remember, the flooding didn’t happen until well after the storm had passed. The city flooded because of levee failures, levees built by the Federal Government. It was pretty hard to be completely prepared for what happened at just the state level. Gov Blanco did her job and it really aggravates me to hear people criticize her when they don’t know what she did, she oversaw the largest evacuation in history. She saved thousands of lives. She is not to blame for Nagins failures or Bush’s slow response.

          • rfrichey

            The best I remember is that help was offered on day but the governor and mayor refused saying they had it under control.

          • Mama62

            That is not correct. They asked for help, she had asked that all available resources be sent to La. in advance of the storm. That did not happen. When it hit the fan and the city flooded, they wanted her to sign over the authority of the La. National Guard, what was left of it after most of it had been sent to Iraq, and she said no. They did not need the LA. National Guard to get their part of the job done. She had already begun using the Guard and didn’t think it wise to give up that authority. She had asked at the beginning of hurricane season for the La.G uard troops to be sent back home from Iraq and that had not happened. Never before had a Gov of a State been asked to give up control of their guard during an emergency. She was skeptical that they would be used wisely since at that point in time, she had not seen anything from The Feds to make her believe otherwise. The La. Guard continued to do what she had commanded them to do which was save lives. There has been a lot of misinformation spread throughout the country about Katrina and the rescue efforts. GB chose to throw her under the bus for his own sloppy rescue efforts. They left thousands of pounds of ice and water sitting idle while people were dying of heat and no water. I know, I experienced it. I didn’t read about it in the paper and it wasn’t just poor Black people who were suffering and dying.

          • rfrichey

            Thanks, glad to get that straight, but who the heck would live in a place that was below the water mark to begin with? How smart is that?

          • Mama62

            Are you not aware that 30% of the population of the US lives in coastal regions? Another large % live where tornadoes are prevalent. some live where earthquakes happen on a regular basis to varying degrees. Next time you heat your home or drive your car, you might want to thank all those people who you say aren’t very smart, they produce 30% of this countries fuel. Seen any movies lately? in 2013 Louisiana was the number one movie producing state. More than California and New York. Someone must like it here. Anyone who lives near a large body of water that can be affected by storms is at risk. That covers a big chunk of the US.

          • rfrichey

            I try to avoid movies, I think that most of them are trash. I love visiting New Orleans, but I would live there on a dare. I also prefer to live inland and not amid flat land.

          • curmudgeon

            democrat low information voters. The person who designed the city was a genius.

          • tedlv

            That is a lie. The governor refused help. Stop lying!

          • tedlv

            That is a lie. LA declined help from the feds for political reasons, Stop lying!

          • Janet Bosley

            The way O hear it the reason he storm was able to do the damage it did was because funds alotted to build and or re-enforce levies was instead spent on building casinos

          • Mama62

            Federal Levees have nothing to do with casinos. The state doesn’t own the casinos oe have anything to do with federal levees.

          • talkto

            In Colorado, we knew a huge storm was bearing down straight at New Orleans. We also knew how far below sea level New Orleans is. Why was there even a need for last minute evacuations?

          • Mama62

            The evacuations weren’t exactly last minute. The Gov declared an emergency several days before. Instituted the evacuation plan and proceed to evacuate over a million people. People were told that there would be no shelters and that everyone should leave. Problem is that in an area where you have so many poor people a lot of them have no means to leave. Also, you must remember that we get hurricanes a lot here and most of the time we have survived without the city of New Orleans filling up with 8-12 feet of water. Some people had either no way to leave or they believed they would be fine. In fact they were fine and the storm had passed, then the levees broke and the city started filling with water. Those who could made their way to places like the Superdome which had been opened only as a last resort and they had no provisions for these people, same at the convention center. People carried what they could but some didn’t have anything to carry. People tried to cross the river to higher ground but were stopped by armed cops who threatened to shoot them. I live in an area about 25 miles form the city that is not below sea level so flooding was not our problem but even here we were cut off from the world for about a week and had no power for 30 days. Because of our jobs, we could not leave and if we had, we would have not been able to get back home for 2 weeks. When these storms threaten, people have to make a decision and weight the consequences of staying or leaving. Sometimes you get it wrong. People all over the country live in places that are subject to natural disasters.

          • C Breeze

            Nagin went to prison,…Maybe Blanco will get her chance too…..Maybe Mary Landrieu can be her cell-mate…

          • Truth-censoredbyliberals

            First level: The plan for emergency evacuation was to include city buses both school and metro to evacuate the starnded in case of a Hurricane. Paid city drivers refused to work overtime on the weekend so this level failed.

            Second level: The plan was for Gov. Blanco to utilize the Louisiana National Guard in conjunction with regional national guard units from other states and the U.S. Coast Guard in a organized coordinated manner to evacuate the stranded.
            This was refused, so the Second level failed as well.
            By this time the situation had developed until it was at a level no reasonable attempt at rescue could be made without further endangerment of life until after the storm.
            Another example of inept and incompetent DemocRat led failures.
            But they blamed Bush, even as far as insinuating he somehow directed the storm at New Orleans because of the large black demographics. Absolutely PERPOSTRIOUS!

          • LittleRoot_48

            Well perhaps Bush didn’t rush back IMMEDIATELY because he knew, as you said yourself, that “it was up to individual mayors to take control of their situations.” He got there as quick as he could.As far as the levee “failures” I don’t know, but I do know that when you choose to live somewhere below sea level, the time will inevitably come when you are IN the water. Also, I’m sorry, but New Orleans is full of people who are way too government-dependent for everything in their lives.

          • LittleRoot_48

            LOL! Ray Nagin is the one who referred to New Orleans as the “chocolate city” in the first place. Maybe the white people in New Orleans are “offended” by his label. They live there, too. Why is everything all about race?

          • Richard F

            Because you mentioned it.

          • Jerry

            There was not one racist thing in LR-48′s comment. God does not hear prayers from gay marriage loving, drug legalizing, abortion baby killing liberal demons and those who vote for them.

          • curmudgeon

            You sure gave your boy Obama a pass on Super storm Sandy along with every other thing he has screwed up during his term so far.

            You are correct in your vacation comment however. Maybe Obozo should spend some time attempting to learn some leadership skills instead of golfing, lecturing, partying and vacationing 24/7.

          • Mama62

            What a telling way to refer to The President of The United States, “boy”. You folks are so obvious. The response to Sandy was 180 degrees from the response to Katrina. No emergency response is ever perfect, but even Gov Christy thought the initial response was acceptable. Big difference. But I can see from your previous comment that your dislike for The President goes much deeper than mere differences in political philosophy. That’s something no rational person can argue with so I’ll leave this thread of hateful remarks about The President to you and your like thinking haters. Have a nice Sunday.

          • curmudgeon

            Mama, it’s shallow thinkers like you that give pause in wondering why they ever passed the 19th amendment.
            He is not MY president. President’s earn respect and can spell it as well. He is a petulant child and thus merits the title of boy. When he can accept personal responsibility for all his mistakes, misspeaks and mishaps maybe he will also merit the title of man.

          • Hunt

            Too much sensitivity here. In my mind it would mean uneducated and inexperienced like a ‘boy’. I wonder if you get upset when blacks say ‘white-boy’? I would say that is more clearly racist.

            The world is connected but you are far too stupid to notice. From the Telegraph.
            Today, too, the economic and geopolitical stakes in Crimea are sky-high, if not focused on agriculture (although Ukraine is once again among the world’s top grain producers). It’s the West’s fear of a resurgent Russia that now prevails, fuelling our determination to contain the old Cold War enemy. Mixed into this complex post-Soviet rivalry, as well, are nagging concerns about West European energy security and the systemic fall-out if a near-bankrupt Ukraine defaults on its sovereign debt.

      • https://www.facebook.com/patriotsforohio Rowan Green

        What crisis? this has been brewing for decades. As the Soviet Union was weakening during the Reagan administration, we covertly funded a number of Fascist, Neo-Nazi, and Nationalist groups in Ukraine In hope of destabilizing Moscow further. There is been more than a little evidence that those connections and support have continued on a intermittent basis since then. The Crimea has always looked to Moscow, and was part of Russia before the fall of the Czar. Most Russians, and folks in the Crimea think it was a mistake when the Soviet Union made it part of Ukraine for administrative purposes. It is also where Russia bases part of its fleet. Ukraine is also where Russia’s gas and oil pipelines to Western Europe pass through, so they have a major interest in making sure they are secure. Once the protests started to get serious in Kiev, it was only the Olympics that stayed Putin’s hand. Russia has annexed Crimea, and there is nothing anyone can do about that. The only question left is whether the rest of Ukraine will be partitioned or not.

          • Jesse Kaellis

            Energy interests for one thing. You are proud to be stupid, aren’t you?

      • Sandra Turner

        And when exactly did President Bush ignore the 9/11 attacks or the threats regarding the 911 attacks? President Bush was visiting an elementary school in Florida and Mrs Bush was back in DC so what vacation are you refering to?As wasting tax dollars on the military, I suggest we stop wasting tax dollars on the Obama’s high flying vacations. Next one up is a trip to China for Michelle, their daughters and her mother. You want to get indignant about tax dollars being wasted I suggest you get indignant about paying for the mothers living in the White House, using WH staff and going on vacations.

        • Richard F

          Oh Sandra Turnerdummer by the minute, he was in Crawford Tex when he got notice of a threat by IGNORED the threat on our HOMELAND. How dumb can you get

          • tedlv

            He was in Florida.

          • Sandra Turner

            Richard F – How pathetic your attempts to ridicule President Bush are. Your facts are so skewed they border on the absurd. And they show your age (at least your intellectual age). So go away!

        • tedlv

          You are absolutely right, but there will, no doubt, be an idiot that will try to say you’re wrong. I guarantee it.

          • tedlv

            See Sandra? That idiot didn’t even know where Bush was!

          • Richard F

            Blo me!

          • tedlv

            Can’t stand truth, can you?

          • Richard F

            You are so DUMB, the threat information was sent to Bush weeks earlier while he was on vacation in Crawford… YOu are the stupid one.. get a brain.

      • tedlv

        That is an absolute lie. You, Richard F, are a liar. Learn some history. Liar.

        • Richard F

          Google it Tedlv.. LOL What do you dispute .. the facts

          • tedlv

            Bush is not to blame. Grow up!

      • tedlv

        You are a troll and a liar. Please go away.

          I said GOOGLE IT.. LOL

        “It’s not like” “Jughead” is NOT ‘asleep at the switch’ somewhere in Key Largo, Florida… MAYBE “Jughead” COULD wake up in time to, at least, save himself…..and MAYBE YOU “Richard F” COULD wake up in time to help save America… (Whaddaya say “Dick F” ?)

          Oh stop being a breezy freezy cover girl.

        Thank you. As a Vet I can say Ive seen more than my share of waste. MIL-SPEC is some of the worse. Also the fact that we have enough nukes to destroy the planet 3 times over is FAR to wasteful. We only have 1 planet.

    This man is a joke! When are WE THE PEOPLE going to stop being jokes and do something to get him out of office! He needs impeached. Worst president ever.

    • Myrtle Linder

      We are a nation of foolish people, we have shoved GOD aside and put an antichrist over us, whose only aim is not to care for the country and her people, but take all the he can, in anyway that he can.At this time, spending more money on one vacation than many people make in a life time. While they are vacationing, I wonder how many American children will starve to death, and die from simple malnutrition because they have “NO MONEY, AT ALL,” during this weekend

      Our people are a foolish people, for not putting brakes on that antichrist and his and those living off of, and supporting his evil. They hate us, GOD and HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST. I can’t help to wonder how long GOD will put up with behavior before HE acts, or is HE already acting through the weather disasters, of the last few years, which is getting worse, all along.

      Matthew 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom : and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

      Luke 21:9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.
      John 11:25-26
      JESUS said, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
      26. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?.

      • Doug

        Myrtle please answer my questions for once. Is there one or more than one Anti-Christ. My evangelical friends always told me it was the Pope. Please help me on this.

        • lovinspoonful

          You need to get new friends.

          • Doug

            But what’s the answer?

          • floramae

            NOPE, ONLY ONE AND OVOMIT’S IT

          • carolskey

            Actually, no he isn’t…and BO’s very mad he wasn’t “chosen”. God Bless!

        • Linda

          There will be only one Antichrist.

          • Linda

            There will be one Antichrist that will rise from the political world and mimic the Lord in many ways. He is mentioned all through the Bible. He will bring peace and harmony for 3 1/2 years and when Israel signs a peace treaty with him, because they are deceived, he will strike with his armies and there will be 3 1/2 years of torment on the earth as has never been seen. When his army marches into Israel, then the Lord will return and will destroy that army and then the Judgement will take place.

          • genann59

            One way to get a good idea on when Jesus will return is to more keep an eye on what is going on in and around Israel than with the US. We can see Biblical prophecies being fulfilled right and left before our eyes in and around Israel, as they are becoming more and more isolated in the world and surrounded by enemies intent on destroying God’s chosen people and the nation of Israel. Obama is the first American president since Israel was reestablished as a nation in 1948 who has sided against Israel, another fulfillment of the prophecies. If and when the rebuilding of the temple begins we will know the time is very, very near, and it looks like that is in more than the planning stages. BTW – Islam is the false religion we are warned against in the Bible, and the empire they are striving to recreate is that empire built on weak foundation. Many think that will be a revival of the Roman Catholic or Roman Empire, but if you read up on the Islamic empire, which once extended from Spain to the west and India and Tibet to the east, parts of what was the Soviet Union to the North, and most of Africa to the south, you will realize it is Islam that is the false religion and they are very intent right now on establishing a worldwide empire. Check out the history on that.

          • Linda

            You are right, Israel is the key.

          • Mama62

            These same things have been going on for over 40 years. I remember being warned over and over again that the conflict in 1966 was the end of times. Wow, I’m still here and so are you. If you folks who believe this really believe this, why do you pick on President Obama about it? Would this not be in God’s hands? I’m confused, you either believe God is in control and it’s all predestined , or not. So why worry about it. Live you own life the best you can. I don’t think God is going to like ugly when you get to the gate anymore than he may not like those you accuse of being the Anti-Christ. Seems a good waste of brain power to worry about it.

          • Doug

            Thank you. Several years ago I used to listen to Christian broadcasting out of Texas and they always pointed to the Pope.

          • curmudgeon

            Where does Hil Clinton factor in?

          • Linda

            I don’t think she does…but that is just my opinion…I believe the Antichrist is a man and the Pope is the False Prophet. If you get some good Bible based end time prophesy reading material, like the Left Behind series it will give you a modern day look at what is currently taking place. Revelations is being fulfilled as we speak.

          • LittleRoot_48

            Maybe she’s the Beast. LOL!

          • curmudgeon

            No doubt of that. I actually have some degree of sympathy for her serial rapist husband. I would turn queer or become celibate if I was forced to listen to her screeching 24/7.

        • luciteehee

          There is only ONE Anti-Christ, but there are MANY precursers! In MY opinion he is by far the most deceitful, lying, and damaging one! He has NO credentials, records, information as to who he really is, no history nor proof of where he came from and what he has done with his life! Besides NOTHING! What we DO know is that he has associated with America-haters all his life, and the few essays he has written the few times we have proof he was in college was NOT complimentary to America! He was raised by radicals, tutored by them, and what we know of his past shows a man with less than stellar principles, yet without even the most MINIMAL VETTING, he became the President of the greatest Nation on earth? This is absolutely LUDICROUS!

          • LittleRoot_48

            God allows evil rulers to be put over his people when they turn their backs on Him and stop obeying him. I have come to consider obama as an “evil ruler” who has been allowed to come to power over the US because we have indeed turned our backs on Him. We need to return God to His rightful place in our lives.

          • luciteehee

            I agree with all my heart and soul! God and Satan have opposite goals for us! Satan longs for our eternal damnation, God wants are Eternal future with HIM in Heaven! Our Holy Bible has over one thousand pages of History in the Old Testament telling about what happens to sinners and those who turn their backs on God and his principles. The New Testament gives us guidelines of how to prosper, be happy, be at peace with each other, and have joy that God intended us too have! He PROMISED us that if we trusted him and obeyed his commandments we would “WANT for NOTHING! He will NOT beg. plead, coerce, cheat, trick, cajole, or con us into believing in him! He waits for US to admit WE need HIM! On the other hand, Satan’s one page “How to” manual use those very tactics and people fall all over themselves LISTENING to him all the time! Then, too late they realize there are consequences for doing so! I KNOW! I was one of Satan’s most loyal servants! It humbles me greatly that God was so merciful and gracious to cleanse me from ALL my sins! No matter what the trials and tribulations I endure on earth, Heaven will be WORTH every moment of it!

        • Mama62

          It is anyone and everyone they disagree with, tiny tiny narrow minds.

      • Mary B

        The Bible talks of many anti-christs

        • genann59

          Not many anti-christs but many prototype anti-christs. Hitler, Stalin, Mao are examples from the last century of prototype anti-christs. There is but one real Anti-Christ and Obama MIGHT be that one, we will know in due time.

        • DollarBill

          You are right,and Jesus Christ will vanquish all of them.HE is working on one right now.

        Amen..we are all going to live forever somewhere, there are only 2 places, where do you want to go? People can laugh, make fun and smirk all they want, but I believe that Jesus is coming back soon and you had better be ready. And for you who don’t believe, what if we are right?

        • LittleRoot_48

          Exactly.

  • Arden Hale

    Democrats don’t care if people are dying anywhere in the world including America if they do not personally have to watch it happen. The value of life ends with their line of sight. Ukraine and Iraq mean nothing to them. Chicago means nothing to them. And nothing anyone says makes it any different because they’re on vacation while it happens.

      • Combat Veteran Seabee

        As a democrat, don’t presume that you know better!

      • Arden Hale

        Its absolutely on target and your president’s behavior proves it. How many die in Chicago year after year and your president does nothing because the people pulling the triggers are members of his party? How many die every year under the jackboot of some Putin-like tyrant and we do nothing when it lies well within our power to prevent it. You voted for him you are commiserate with his actions.

      • carolskey

        Then you might want to consider switching affiliations. While NOT everyone might be included in his statements, history can not be altered and your party is implicated!

        God bless and may your eyes be opened to truth!

  • gahnzo55

    Kind of the same mentality as when Benghazi took place… (nothing to see here.. keep moving.. I have plans… and no crisis will get in the way of that..) I can’t wait for this fall’s election.. make him a true LAME DUCK…wait.. he already is one.. he “ducks” any responsibility for anything…
