Obama Handles Iraq Crisis By Golfing In Palm Springs

From the Palm Springs Press-Enterprise:

President to arrive Friday evening


President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama should land at Palm Springs International Airport at about 6 p.m. Friday, straight from a visit to the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota.

At approximately 8:30 a.m. Saturday, they’ll jump over to Laguna Beach for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser, followed by the commencement address to UC Irvine’s Class of 2014 at Angel Stadium, which wraps up at 1 p.m.

Work work work. When does Obama ever find the time to pump iron?

That puts the Obamas back in the desert at about 2 p.m. Saturday. They will stay for Father’s Day, before flying home to Washington, D.C., mid-morning on Monday. It’s unclear if their daughters, Malia and Sasha, will tag along.

What is Obama’s plan here in the Coachella Valley? Presumably a short vacation, and likely a round of golf or two – though the details remain fuzzy.

It’s the president’s third desert visit since June, 2013, though the first time accompanied by his wife…

The Federal Aviation Administration issued temporary flight restrictions throughout the weekend, citing “VIP movement,” for airspace surrounding the Palm Springs airport.

Private pilots are being warned that planes will not be allowed within an 11-nautical-mile radius of Palm Springs International Airport beginning at 5:30 p.m. That restriction will remain in place until 8:30 a.m. Saturday. A similar restriction will be put in place at the Palm Springs airport between 1:45 p.m. Saturday and 12:30 p.m. Monday…

During Obama’s June and February visits, fighter jets intercepted several planes that entered the restricted space near Hemet and Rancho Mirage…

Remember all the grief Bush 41 got for going out on his boat and Bush 43 got for going to his ranch during times of crisis?

Speaking of Bush the younger, there is this via The Hill:

Obama as unpopular as George W. Bush in poll

By Rebecca Shabad | June 12, 2014

A new survey suggests President Obama is just as unpopular as former President George W. Bush. Just over half of those polled, 51 percent, have an unfavorable view of Obama, and 51 percent currently feel the same about Bush, according to a CNN/ORC International poll released Thursday.

Forty-seven percent of the public has a favorable rating of Obama, which CNN said is a new low for him, and roughly identical to Bush’s favorable rating of 46 percent.

Days before leaving the White House in January 2009, Bush had a favorable rating of 35 percent. After the 2008 election, Obama had a 78 percent favorable rating.

Bush and Obama now have lower favorable ratings than their two predecessors. Nearly 70 percent have a positive view of former President Bill Clinton and nearly 60 percent have a favorable view of former President George H.W. Bush…

And just imagine if Obama didn’t have the news media as his public relations firm.

      GBJ/ I just had to pray for forgiveness for thoughts on godess Hillary pretending she is already president.

      And when I read a 6th Gitmo Terrorist, once the leader of 5 Terrorist Dream Team died while working out in Gitmo’s Dream Gym because he was so overweight from ice-cream.

      Ohbombya must be having a bad golf day because he said we may bomb Iraq tommorrow.

      I imagine he does not need premission for to use his phone and pen, because there is most likely “a clause” that the Iraq War is not really over yet.

      I wish Ohbombya would stop risking his health and safety sneaking out for burgers and working out at hotel gyms with strangers.

      It is just that I worry he is wearing down his body gaurds (more than any president in history) and making it extra difficult for them to protect him. The’ve taken to drinking more, and they might not be fast enough to jump in front of him. I pray he’s hired more Air Force One pilots to avoid jet lag as they deserve to fly safe and spend time with their families or get out and enjoy sunshine from being cooped up all the time.

      I sure hope Ohbombya takes it easy in hotel gyms and on the golf course. I wish he’d stop his walk-outs in the DC area to get fattening hambergers or visit star bucks.

      Can you imagine what Hillary’s body gaurds we pay for must be going through? They are giving the woman who threw the shoe at her a mental evaluation. They think she might be nuts. Yeah right.
