"That was Bush in Crawford. They were 'vacations' only in the sense that he wasn't in Washington."

John,

"...At least, that's what the Quran says... "

You used to be quite informative, but that comment is nothing but blasphemy.

""Gotta love it when you hear the president say and I quote, "MY Whitehouse...." - rmiller

Despite what you heard, from Porky Limbaugh...EVERY President refers to "my Whitehouse"...as in...him and his entire-administration.

Ya' can't blame Porky, for making-up such things. He'd only done a couple-months, o' college....before they'd (finally) jettisoned his disfigured-backside."

I told you in my post I didn't get that from Rush, I heard it out of the mouth of Obama.

Quit it with the porky commentary.

Obviously, you must listen to him, because you exhaust wasted space here informing those who do listen of their misunderstandings. I don't listen to him, so sae your time on my posts, please.

So...you're saying what...that, recalling your perpetual-defense, of Daddy's Lil' Dumbya, is more than you (or, any THINKING-person) can possibly tolerate??

Hey...admitting you had a problem...a SERIOUS problem... is the first-step towards recovery!!!

"Samuel John's, and others here may hate America and the President so badly, that they delight in nothing more than seeing our duly elected leader kidnapped or killed while traveling abroad, but as a patriotic American, I would disagree." - CHayes

Such people are easily-influenced....the reason I found it so surprising you'd never mentioned their "messiah"/oracle; Glenn Beck.

AGREED...and, I can always rely on the "creativity" of White-Wingers to suggest such an absurd scenario.

CHayes,

Your focus is lacking. You are trying to defend your Messiah by pointing blame at others, on a variety of topics. Your comments are spraying all over the bowl and splattering on the floor. Time to mop the floor and wipe down the bowl. Maybe you ought to aim at the target at hand, the LTE." - ToTEXASfromPA

Hayes, the Marine Corps Band might not be the world's toughest. "The Marine Band recruits experienced musicians; members are selected through a rigorous audition procedure and must satisfy additional security and physical requirements to be eligible. Selected band members serve under a four-year contract as active duty enlisted Marines and are subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice and physical standards. They are the only members of the United States Armed Forces not required to undergo recruit training and do not perform combat missions. Also, they are not assigned to any unit other than the Marine Band." This preceding from wikipedia. They are not Marines in the pure sense of the word as they are not riflemen first and foremost as the rest of us were.

"You see, I'm a patriotic American,and thus I think when the duly elected leader of these great United States travels, its a reflection on all if us."

Then are we to presume that when he bowed to the Saudi's, that red-blooded American patriot that you are was as enraged as was much of the US? Or, when he went to Germany to apologize for Americas attitude? I'm guessing that you even believe that the funsie fly-over NYC was a real thrill for the people of that city?

" I did not criticize him for international travel, though I certainly criticized his behavior on some of those trips."

Come on folks, give Hayes the benefit of the doubt. Obama is just returning to his roots in Africa.

Gotta love it when you hear the president say and I quote, "MY Whitehouse...."

Whose Whitehouse? It's our Whitehouse, Obama.

But, you probably do feel it is yours: between in-law residency and the first black family that shamed the Whitehouse and became our nation's biggest welfare project ever! Did anyone else hear that today? BTW, not hearsay, himself saying! I wonder if we'll have to pay for extra protection on his mother-in-law when he leaves (if he leaves).

The no cameras concept would be unacceptable to narcissist-in-chief, since he couldn't see himself while on vacation. By the way, Christopher did you never hear of a working vacation? That was Bush in Crawford. They were 'vacations' only in the sense that he wasn't in Washington.

Hopefully there won't be videos making our President look like an idiot this time.

The ONLY way to be absolutely sure this won't happen will be to completely BAN ALL CAMERAS AND OTHER VIDEO RECORDING DEVICES from all parts of the trip.

Not too tough at all, is it? Hypocrisy and stupidity are also demonstrably easy.
