    As confirmed by this report of the Obama's Christmas Vacation, Barack prefers doing just about anything to (a) working or (b) spending time with the wife & kids.

    Gotta luv the family dynamics at play here. They put out a warm & fuzzy family Christmas card, then ship the kids off to Granny's floor, Barack plops down in front of the big screen to watch sports while Michelle plans her next getaway from the ole man.

    Truly the typical American family -- pretending to be something else.


    Obama’s Family Vacation for Dudes
    December 27, 2012

    President Obama’s just-completed five-day respite in Hawaii was the vacation some guys dream about, including an intense focus on recreation alone or with the guys and a comparatively light schedule of family-oriented events.


    Obama played golf three out of the five days he was on Oahu, engaging in marathon sessions of up to six hours for a total of about 17 hours on the links. He spent another three or four hours toning up in the gym.

    By contrast, he spent about two hours on the beach with the family and another couple of hours hiking with them.

    And not a moment, by the way, in church – unlike the two pre-election Hawaii Christmases of 2010 and 2011.

    While the Obamas certainly got some quality time in at their vacation home, the fun stuff was mainly for the dude and his dudes. On both Monday and Wednesday, the family barely got to see the president until after 3:00 pm, when he had finished his workouts and rounds of golf.

    Wednesday’s golf outing, the 19th of 2012 and the 111th of his presidency, featured longtime pals Bobby Titcomb, Mike Ramos, and Greg Orme, the same crew who were with him on the links Monday.

    But alas, the president returns late this morning to Washington where his new pal will be Speaker John Boehner, with whom he will try to negotiate a deal to avert the Fiscal Cliff.

    Obama’s family remained in Hawaii without him.

    Bet he didn't want to go golfing with Boehner. Wonder why he is so Obsessed with golfing.....knowing he sucks at it! Wonder if the Press will ask him about that Middle Class Sport of Bowling and if he has improved any with that.

    I've heard his obsession with golf is due to his desire to be inaccessible. Of course he can always be reached (in case the Seals are fixin to attack bin laden's compound and they need him for the photo op or something)... but 9 times out of 10... cell phones are no-no's on golf courses.

    It's Barack's way of crawling in a hole.

    Well we all know they were contemplating divorce before his senate seat...so it's not incomprehensible to think that there is trouble in River City where the two of them are concerned. He plays with his buddies and she has the kids.

    1) as an avid golfer, I'm a tad jealous.
    2) as a male, given the choice between being with Michelle on the beach (or about anywhere else) or playing golf....golf wins hands down
    3) as a father, no comment

    Possibly for the same reason (obsession) you continue to post here knowing your posts pretty much suck. Golf? Come on. Really?

    Really? That's funny.....I don't see all those guests visiting anything you representing with. Not even half of them read anything you post. let alone check out any content you put up. Do you think that's cuz most peering thru the Window, understand that you have nothing to contribute?

    Have you figured out that you don't have friggin clue about 3/4ths of the shit you talk about.

    Seems you look quite weak in Foreign Affairs lib....."what" still haven't figured out where the Big Boyz Play?

    First, your lead sentence makes zero sense but I'll try and work around it. Your thoughts on content. Interesting. That is either because this forum is around 80% conservative and you people just pat yourselves on the back... OR I have tangled with a few and they don't care to engage. Hmmm. Seems you're reading and responding. Back some time ago, before you and Political Bullpen, I was on Political Buddies. No problems there. I had many, many posts and engaging in conversation that was interesting. I'm just not on this forum much as you'll notice by posts numbers since joining.

    Foreign Affairs? Well Brainiac, let's go. Let's see what you know vs. what you will make up.

    So here is my suggestion: Forget bombs -- we should drop Obama administration policy makers on Iraq and Syria. That would ensure the ruin of the Islamic State in no time!
