Just like him brushing off and trying to make it a joke to the folks who question his eligibility to be president. Just like him brushing it off and trying to make a joke about his comments that weren’t supposed to be heard to Medvedev about waiting until his “reelection” when he’ll be more “flexible”. Just like him brushing it off and arrogantly doubling down about Mooch’s vacations when he knows people are angry about her and her disrespect to Americans who can’t even afford to put gas in their cars. Just like . . . just like . . . just like . . . just like . . .

It’s as if . . . or, should I say, just like Obama will not take ANY responsibility for his actions or his policies or his failures. It’s just like he is . . . not really there. But, unfortunately for us, he is . . . there.

Good one!

Although the more sober thinking is now starting. Were they drinking? Were these women ‘just’ prostitutes? Were the agents separated during the activity? Does each know what the other said?

You bring up some valid questions. One of the biggest problem for anyone in the executive protection business is to keep and maintain the secrecy of what and where the principle is doing and going. “Pillow talk” could lead to an attempt on the principle’s life. From what I understand about this situation, these men were part of the advance team, and would have all the info regarding schedules, routes, etc.

Get drunk or high, and have a liaison with a hostile posing as a hooker, and you can very well blow weeks of preparation and compromise security not only for the principle but also for the rest of your team.

and here’s a joke of the day:

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be a Republican. “I am,” replied the man. “How did you know?”

“Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me.”

The man smiled and responded, “You must be an Obama-Democrat.”

“I am,” replied the balloonist. “How did you know?” “Well,” said the man, “you don’t know where you are — or where you are going. You’ve risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it’s my fault.”

An excellent modern day parable.

Excellent joke,

Obama is going to need a different type of ‘protection’ when he returns to the WH today! I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes when MOOchelle gets her hands on him – it ain’t gonna be pretty! Then again, he did pave the way for ANOTHER vacation for Queenie. Anything to pacify the Warden!

I thought it really odd that Obama would make that remark about scouting for MO’s vacation especially after that reporter (from St. Louis?) grilled him about them taking so many vacations. He absolutely does not care what people think. The Obamas lust and hunger for a celebrity lifestyle that they can’t afford unless on our dime. Look at their tax forms, their income can’t possibly be enough to cover all their trips, parties, tuition for the private school and last but not least, clothes and shopping trips for MO.

Their hedonistic lifestyle is going to bring them down. If Romney plays it right, Obama’s comments about scouting for MOOshelle’s vacation destinations will be his ticket to the WH. It summarizes the last 4 years!

Misquote here, “had protection” should read “used protection”
