Well the guy can't just sit home talking to dictators every night, can he?

The planned three-day stay, during which the president is being joined by family and former and current aides, will bring his total time spent at Camp David to all or part of 487 days.

Yes, that's 487 days. And Camp David is not even where the president has spent the most time when not at the White House: Knoller reports that Mr. Bush has made 77 visits to his ranch in Crawford during his presidency, and spent all or part of 490 days there.

I wonder if Mr. Bush was working while at Camp David. Since both there and his ranch were equipped with secure telecom,

Or if he was just fucking off and watching a Broadway play.

Bush Gave No Sign of Worry In August 2001

CRAWFORD, Tex., April 10 -- President Bush was in an expansive mood on Aug. 7, 2001, when he ran into reporters while playing golf at the Ridgewood Country Club in Waco, Tex.

The day before, the president had received an intelligence briefing -- the contents of which were declassified by the White House Saturday night -- warning "Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US." But Bush seemed carefree as he spoke about the books he was reading, the work he was doing on his nearby ranch, his love of hot-weather jogging, his golf game and his 55th birthday.

"No mulligans, except on the first tee," he said to laughter. "That's just to loosen up. You see, most people get to hit practice balls, but as you know, I'm walking out here, I'm fixing to go hit. Tight back, older guy -- I hit the speed limit on July 6th."

"I am taking my wife to New York City because I promised her during the campaign that I would take her to a Broadway show after it was all finished."

Dirty socialist liar. Don't nobody tell M'chelle but he took her to an off Broadway show not a Broadway show. It says so right there in the Politico article. Idiot.

My spidey sense tells me that taking three planes instead of Scare Force One was not designed as a cost cutting measure.

J Thomas

Don't worry, next time they will ride bikes into Manhattan from D.C. and then some people will complain that he's not spending time thinking about the country's problem but riding bikes or that he is pretending to be poor when he is not. Sorry, I just remembered that once you become President you can no longer give your wife a treat even on Saturdays.

Apparently, those who didn't have a problem with Air Force One flying from D.C. to Texas now have a problem with it flying from D.C. (mind you a smaller jet stream jet since it was a person visit) to New York.

O since we're in a recession I think the Obamas should remain at the White House 24-7 and weep until we recover from the recession. Forget that he's been talking about the economy virtually every week day for four months.

R Shinno

How silly can you get, the president takes his wife to a show and dinner, and suddenly it's some kind of economic threat. Oh, least we forget all the trips by the Bushes over 8 years...

daddy

Here">http://www.infoplease.com/spot/campdavid1.html">Here is a decent link describing the history of Camp David. Started as a camp during the Depression for Federal workers and their families, President Roosevelt, Democrat, renamed it "Shangri-La", and inaugurated it as a Presidential Retreat in 1942, when hundreds of thousands of US Troops were at war.
All subsequent Presidents used the facility frequently excepting Truman, who's wife considered it boring. The meetings known as the Camp David Accords were hosted there by President Carter, and as of the date of this website, President Reagan spent more days there than any other President.


matt

well, if the NYC flyby cost $330,000, this time it included Marine One, the Secret Service, NYPD, FBI, CIA, various and assorted aides and hangers on, plus I'm sure the Presidential Suite somewhere nice. I would say that date cost somewhere north of a cool $1 Million.

tone deaf, tone deaf, tone deaf, and he just doesn't give a damn...welcome to the new Fuehrer.

Another man's wife-

Uh- excuse me.
When was the last date YOU TOOK YOUR WIFE ON?-or promise you kept to your wife, kids or party?
Michele doesn't care if its "OFF or ON" broadway, I CAN promise YOU that!

Extraneus

I guess the new commenters didn't mind shelling out their tax dollars for the $100/oz Wagyu steak, either.

Jack is Back!

No problem regarding costs since they used their TARP slush fund - its there for such contingency purposes, you know. Also, you can add this to the stimulus progress report on Recovery.gov since all this overtime for the NYPD and other necessary local security is spending money at the Babylon and Rocakaways Wal-Mart. At least he didn't decide at the last minute to invite Chavez on a double date.

mefolkes

JMH makes an excellent point. I would love to see an analysis of the total fuel consumption of the three airplanes used to get to New York and back. It is irrelevant how much less fuel was used by the plane in which the President personally rode. The nasty little troll claims that President Bush spent time clearing brush at Camp David. I don't recall that. He did keep himself busy clearing brush at Crawford. And it is grossly unfair to hold Bush responsible for 9-11, because there was no reason to believe Bin Laden's threats were so serious and imminent, thanks to the successful efforts by the preceding administration to hamstring our intelligence and law enforcement agencies and prevent them from communicating with one another.

Captain Hate

Maybe Odumbass was looking for his Columbia transcript.

PeterUK

"Well the guy can't just sit home talking to dictators every night, can he?"

So why did he take her with him?

matt

wow, we must be a talking point on Journo-List this morning. Such interesting people.

The point is that the Obamas have been living large and being seen to do so in a time when the rest of us are suffering. There are those things a president does as a part of the job, and usually one would find Obama's predecessors incorporating enjoyment into their work schedules.

This president seems to love the spotlight and be seen doing so. At the same time, he has asked the rest of us to tighten our belts, do as he says, and not as he does. Yeah, a great example of leadership.

syn

Rome burns while Nero fiddles.

PeterUK

Either TM has been linked to a funny farm, or Axelgrease has ordered the obamabots to jump on this story.
Interesting to see the Alphabet Kid back after all these months.

But I agree,it is trivial,unless you are watching your stock being given to the UAW,your Chrysler dealership handed to an Obama supporter and are waving goodbye to your job and your house.
The Obama's would have been better going to watch The Producers.

Geezer

Do you think they left time in their schedule to visit Bloomingdale's to scope out a new cardboard box for Ogabe's half-bro?

PeterUK

"northbound lanes were shut down by police for their visit, past Ground Zero, into the Village for dinner at the Village's Blue Hill restaurant."

What about all those whose lives and businesses were disrupted by the Obama's junket? Since it was an "Off Broadway" production Obama could have invited them to the White House.
Then there are all the diners who couldn't get a table.Think of the number of people who would have had to be vetted by the Secret Service.

Rick Ballard

President Ogabe has called upon Americans to save and invest rather than borrow and spend. I'm sure there is a perfectly good reason why Idi and Imelda increased the $2 trillion deficit by flying to NY for the evening - it probably has to do with creating or savings jobs to offset some of the 2.5 million lost since his inauguration.

Did Imelda pick up some more new shoes on the visit?

I would expect Axelrod's anal cysts to get beyond "he did it too" and focus on the President's successes to date. I'm sure they will if he ever has one.

It probably would have been better had Idi and Imelda just returned to Hog Butchers Hall in Chicago for the weekend. They could have had a few of the slumlords with whom they shared the gutter in Chicago over for a nice evenings discussion of how best to fully immiserate the fools who cast votes for an incompetent liar, thief and cheat.

pissed off

You know, this shit really is not funny. A million dollars for a fucking date when so many people are going hungry and have no place to live, unemployment at record levels across the nation, foreclosures up the ass, bankrupcies abound,....what the fuck is goin on here? I need new tires on my truck to deliver news papers 7 days a week. Oh yeah, He understands our pain down here at the bottom of the food chain. And I don't even want to get started on%#$@*&%^%%$Mushelll. Pissed Off..........

Not on taxpayer's money he can't...and you better explain yourself to all those Americans who can't afford a life.Not to mention those who have their lives ended by late term abortion.
You might also spare a thought for those who are losing their lives in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Yes "Get a Life",if only.

"Now watch me hit this drive"

I seem to remember lots of liberals going off the deep end about the above quote, but then again, I remember a time when verbal gaffes were a sign of presidential stupidity.

Happy Cinco de Quatro everyone.

Sue

After 9/11, the talking point was quit talking about what Clinton did or didn't do, focus on Bush. Guess that lasted until a democrat was in office. If these people could go one day without saying "Bush did too". I thought they wanted someone who didn't do what Bush did. Guess not. They merely wanted someone with a D after their name.

PeterUK

So that is twice Obama has shut down New York?

sears poncho

Doesn't everyone remember those articles from 2005 about the $40 million inauguration. ZOMG!!1!1!11!1!1, how tone deaf could someone be to spend that kind of money when there were so many homeless people (thanks Bernie Goldberg for pointing out that homeless people disappear during a Dem administration) Now, spending $140 million on an inauguration is OK. Why? Shut up, that's why.

PeterUK

Obama was the $600,000,000 president,is he good value for money? You could have picked up a freeloader like this for £100K and kept the change.

narciso

Aren't we told, that we're in the greatest economic crisis of all time, which necessitates taking over the banks, the auto companies, putting a hammer lock on our energy and industrial infrastructure through cap and trade, jettisoning all the rules including shutting down viable auto dealerships, because they didn't tithe to the Leader's content. Banks who received our money can't go to Vegas, for a business
conference, but he can, and "What happens in Vegas. . ." On the one hand, I night he spends lavishing dinners, and entertaining the missus, is one he's not planning further
takeovers of the society, on the other hand, serious WTh is this,

"promised her during the campaign that I would take her to a Broadway show after it was all finished."

Does this mean it is all finished? He's going to quit turning us into a fourth world nation.

"Two other planes carried staff and reporters."

How many staff does one take on a date? Are there no reporters in New York? Is this part of the Stimulus money? If the American taxpayers have to pay the cost of reporter flying to New York, shouldn't there be some conservative reporters in the group? So many questions, so few meaningful answers.

centralcal

This post on the dinner-theater-date hit Memeorandum along with others.

Seems the spam talking points are all the same - look over there! Bush! Went to Camp David! Went home!

No mention of Bush cocktail parties, Bush Valentine's dates, Bush New York dates.

And I love this comment from Axelturfer J Thomas above: Forget that he's been talking about the economy virtually every week day for four months.

J, honey, he's done much more than talk about it, he has almost single handedly destroyed it - or "redistributed" it.

matt

How about his $650 Million in campaign spending? Who says you can't buy the presidency? He also broke his promise to observe campaign funding limits.

McCain spent @ $125 and kept his honor. Obama has none.

Charlie (Colorado)

What about all those whose lives and businesses were disrupted by the Obama's junket?

I was staying at the Paramount (43rd & Broadway) one night when Clinton made a visit to a fundraising dinner next door. It was an amazing pain in the ass: traffic cleared from the Roosevelt, some major crosstown route and down — oh, hell, 7th or 8th Ave I think, I can't remember which goes downtown. Worse, it was a cold rainy night, and the hotel was locked down; if you wanted out, you couldn't leave, if you wanted in you couldn't get close.

Charlie (Colorado)

I agree, Tara, they ought to be able to go out, even if it does cost millions and disrupt life for tens of thousands. And it's simply lèse majesté for the common people to complain about it.

J

I think it is the marie antoinette attitude that enrages us.
obama strolls into work around 9 a.m., leaves around 5-ish, in time for dinner and his evening parties. Weekends he is busy wounding fellow basketball players (who would lay a hand on obama while secret service stands by....definition of a bully).
If President Bush had done any of these things, he would have been unrelentingly attacked....but then, President Bush was a man who could take it....obama is not.

gaye hall

I do have to agree..there is something about
people the very common person..you have to
tighten your belt in these times..this is
supposed to be a democracy..but in reality
what does that word then actually mean? about anything? The Obamas seem like what?
or for that matter any celebrity people?
They whatever their position in life..political..athletics..stage music and
screen..do not personally live at all the
life of the common person. What should we
then expect of them and not expect of them?
Perhaps the real question is...when they
can and do all of them..live such a different personel life..that does include
big CEO types can they possibly feel our
pain to be able to get things actually done
that are needed for just the common person?
Seems though that is why the communist party
took such a hold once in places like Russia
that way sure did not work well for the
people did it.

Barak and Michelle have spent their entire lives surrounded by a culture of ENTITLEMENT.

Sure they could have had dinner out in DC, and waited until the DNC could pick up the bill for the NYC junket.

But why should they?

The US treasury is their own private piggy bank.

Actually I think the Marie Antoinette / Worf comparison is an insult to Marie, since she was somebody of relatively common background who was torn to shreds by the same sort of scandal mongers that keep yammering about how beautiful the Klingon lieutenant is.

The Republicans can not afford to be critical about such a small matter as "Date Night". A continuing bond with your spouse keeps a healthy marriage and is part the American tradition. If he doesn't spend time with his wife, he will just spend more time with a beautiful intern or something. Oops! Wrong President. This President seems to be under a microscope with every move he makes. Not to say he shouldn't be criticize just as former Presidents have been. But, at least criticize him on topics that can have an affect on taxpayers lives...you know like health care, taxes, gay marriage, immigration, and unemployment to name a few. Family value is important and part of the taxpayer's obligation to the President and his family regardless who is elected. The RNC just don't get it. They should know which battles to pick to win a war and this is not one of them. GM's situation was not caused by the President and taking his wife out will not change the outcome. You can rest assure that President Obama has been on top of the auto giant's situation before leaving for a night out.

Better for us had he been on top of an intern.

Captain,
Er,not quite.

Marie Antoinette , Maria Antonia Josepha Johanna von Habsburg-Lothringen; French: Marie Antoinette Josèphe Jeanne de Habsbourg-Lorraine); Vienna, 2 November 1755 – Paris, 16 October 1793) was an Archduchess of Austria and Queen of France and of Navarre. She was the fifteenth and second before last child of Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor and of Maria Theresa, Empress of Austria.

Slightly up the scale to Michelle Antoinette.

YES! And free trips to NYC for all married couples in the US should have been a part of the stimulus.

Oh, I get it - we should be happy Chairman Zero is having a date night, and not reading a few more pages in his Marxist primer on how to nationalize/destroy some other portion of the American economy. Interesting angle, and I suppose we should be grateful for small measures. Maybe he and Michelle Antoinette should spend all their days flying around pointlessly. The cost to taxpayers would be a pittance compared to the damage he has done.

Sue

I'm sure Joe was available. Along with the real brains in the WH, Rham.

MayBee

This is the President who sent his Agriculture secretary to a presser to announce they were saving money by canceling Stan Johnson's $400,000 consulting contract.

This is the President who held an event at the WH to announce government employees were going to teleconference and buy bulk paper to save the taxpayer's money.

This is the President who announced WH staff was going to have a pay freeze if they made over $100,000/ year.

He's the one trying to sell the idea that little things add up.

Then he blows $300,000 or so on one dinner out.

Ignatz

Can't the dipshit lefties at least pretend to be sharp enough to get the point?

Perhaps Barry and Michelle could have done something local and a tad more frugal, considering their rhetoric.
After all, if the former CEO of GM couldn't take a business jet to DC, ON BUSINESS, without an outraged lecture from the Scold in Chief why does its present Chairman get to take three of them to NY on a date?

Nah, it's been easy for Chairman Zero. He still shakes his head every night wondering why President Bush found it so hard.

2 days to nationalize Chrysler. 2 days to nationalize GM. 2 days to nationalize the banks. A couple more days of work to destroy energy and put a final nail in the coffin of the American economy with Crap n' Trade. This stuff is easy. Bush probably just didn't follow the Marxist primer closely enough - nor surround himself with brilliant socialists who know instantly how to solve all the worlds problems.

Is bourgeois capitalist plot to discredit Dear Leader. However, Oblinski's actions reminiscent of Kerensky's invitation to Bolshoi Ballet to perform decadent revanchist classic Swan Lake in recreation room of dacha prior to October Revolution.

Plot was foiled only when loyal Bolsheviki violin section refused cooperation insisting on playing prelude to Gospidin Tchaikovskii's little known 1811 overture,
creating chaos among decadent ballet corps.

All hail Oblinski, benefactor of socialist cultural flowering and Wagyu steak BBQ!

When will people stop criticism of Obama by making some comment about Bush? The world is not a sporting event in which a citizen belongs to one team or another -- it is quite possible to see the flaws in both Presidents.

I despised George Bush, did not think we had much of a choice between Obama and McCain, and now I despise Obama for his actions since he became President.

Having settled that, I suppose there is nothing left, but for Obamabots to move on and call me racist. It's going to be a very long four years.

RichatUF

Wow this thread must have popped up on Axelturd's radar. A few things since it's moving so fast:

PeterUK- Obama's campaign was closer to 750 million dollars. Very curious the sour pusses in the McCain and "moderate" camp never point out the significant funding disadvantage (especially on the radio and in the mail) which probably tipped NC, VA, FL, and IN. Obama's radio and mail campaign here in FL was devastating to McCain, well before Gov. Palin was picked as VP.

Axelturds: The trip doesn't bother me. Its the tone deafness of it. Why didn't he use it to help Broadway and NY-the recession has hit them quite hard because of the finance sector job losses? He had the same sort of tone deafness in Las Vegas too, by criticising an AIG agents convention in Vegas, which caused a number of companies to back out of conventions there. He then goes to Vegas to have a fundraiser for Reid and doesn't address his comments or the difficulty that Vegas is in because of the recession. Or his complainants about CEO's taking corporate jets too DC which caused the pitchfork brigade to get hot-and-bothered and Gulfstream lost sales and had orders cancelled. So he jumps on a Gulfstream corprate jet for a flying visit to NYC. And in the "worst financial crisis ever", GM's going into a sham bankruptcy tomorrow, and North Korea is acting up, and he's got the time to take in a show and have a few glasses of wine.

((Actually I think the Marie Antoinette / Worf comparison is an insult to Marie, since she was somebody of relatively common background who was torn to shreds by the same sort of scandal mongers that keep yammering about how beautiful the Klingon lieutenant is. Plus I don't think Madame Antoinette ever held an extremely high-paying job that wasn't replaced after she left it.))


agree Marie Antoinette was torn the shreds, even worse, by the same sort of scandal mongerers that destroy people today, but where did you get that MA had a 'relatively common background'? She was an aristocrat blueblood through and through
