Obamas to Travel to Africa

by Keith Koffler on May 20, 2013, 5:25 pm

From the White House

President Obama and the First Lady look forward to traveling to Senegal, South Africa, and Tanzania from June 26 – July 3. The President will reinforce the importance that the United States places on our deep and growing ties with countries in sub-Saharan Africa, including through expanding economic growth, investment, and trade; strengthening democratic institutions; and investing in the next generation of African leaders.

Mrs. Obama, you may remember, traveled to South Africa two years ago for a trip that was half work and half vacation. And almost all taxpayers.

“But, fear not, the President and First Family WILL be back in the good old USA to celebrate July 4th with their subjects!”

I’m so relieved

gracepmc May 20, 2013 at 9:58 pm

I thought 4th of July celebrations were all cancelled due to sequester.

wonder how much this party will cost us for a guy who is not even American

pianogirl88 May 20, 2013 at 5:33 pm

He must have gotten a tip on where the real birth certificate was located.

RickW May 20, 2013 at 5:37 pm

PG, look out your window…..See the grey Ford Crown Victoria? The one with the two LARGE men wearing ear wigs? Its been fun……..

pianogirl88 May 20, 2013 at 5:55 pm

Thank you, RW ~ I know I can always depend on you to cheer me up!

Michael May 20, 2013 at 5:40 pm

No doubt that he would love to visit Kenya, but he wouldn’t dare.

Andy from Beaverton May 20, 2013 at 6:18 pm

He’ll be visiting his first cousin Raila Odinga and show him the Chicago way to win elections and influence enemies. I’m sure Odinga will brag about his body count to Obama.

Otis Driftwood May 20, 2013 at 5:49 pm

Ok, so school will be out, are the kidlets going too? Grandma? Or is this a pre-vacation?

What is imported from Senegal, South Africa, and Tanzania to the US? Why are we needed to help them expand economic growth, investment, and trade; strengthening democratic institutions; and investing in the next generation of African leaders?? Oh, I know.. it’s have Kerry drop off some $$$$$ after all the handshakes, bowing and hugs.

We have enough troubles at home, and they need 10 days in Africa?

RickW May 20, 2013 at 5:52 pm

I can just see the adoring native masses after Kerry leaves them. “Did you know he served in Vietnam?”

deniro11 June 13, 2013 at 6:46 am

wish it was 10 years for these 2 A$$holes

Robin H May 20, 2013 at 6:01 pm

Is he going to stop in Nigeria? Maybe attend a Christian church service?

Star May 20, 2013 at 6:13 pm

Not to be cynical but is this about the slave trade or anything? Or just educational for the kids? I mean, theirs.

gracepmc May 20, 2013 at 9:28 pm

No need was a bombing of a Catholic Church in Tanzania just this month.

DeniseVB May 20, 2013 at 6:24 pm

Hasn’t Bush been credited with saving millions of lives in Africa ? I bet they like him better :D

DeniseVB May 20, 2013 at 6:27 pm
pianogirl88 May 20, 2013 at 6:36 pm

Yes, they do love Dubya in Africa, and they love Laura Bush and the girls, because they’ve spent time with the women and children who have been so devastated by the disease. Thanks for the link.

AZ Granny May 20, 2013 at 7:11 pm

The Obama’s are going on their summer holiday with the taxpayers footing the bill. The only surprise is that they’re waiting until June 26. I figured Mooch would want to head out earlier. Oh well, maybe she’ll have a quick vacation somewhere before heading out to Africa.

Meanwhile, I’m always reminded of this song when they announce travel plans. It’s Holiday Road from the National Lampoon Vacation movie.

Well, the royal couple won’t have to worry about Larry Conners asking them any more questions about the family’s frequent vacation trips. Belo and the St. Louis CBS affiliate KMOV took care of that little issue. They allowed Mr. Conners to be “crucified” by this regime just like that EPA weasel, Al Armendariz, described. Like Roman soldiers invading Turkish villages, this regime “crucified” Mr. Conners career to make an example out of him…to keep the rest of the slaves under control. While America is starting to bear a striking resemblance to Rome before the fall and Nero doesn’t hold a candle to Obama, the American people aren’t Turkish villagers.

Enjoy your African vacation potentate. It’s not like you do anything around here but harass and divide us anyway.

Reminder of Al’s Roman analogy: http://blog.heritage.org/2012/04/25/video-epa-official-compares-agency-enforcement-to-roman-crucifictions/

Steve May 20, 2013 at 8:44 pm

Susan, You pegged it. I couldn’t have said it better!!

gracepmc May 20, 2013 at 9:25 pm

I hope these What I Did On My Vacation reports will be included in that cesspool of the future, the Obama Library.

Any

Beedogs May 20, 2013 at 9:58 pm

Barry running away from the scandals and cover ups? Or the First Beard Queen Mooch demanding a working vacation?

Marcus May 20, 2013 at 10:20 pm

Perhaps the Obamas are seeking political asylum. Barry read in the newspapers that his administration is out of control.

Girly1 May 21, 2013 at 1:03 am

Maybe they can return Aunt Zituni and Uncle Omar to the rightful owners.

riverlife_callie May 21, 2013 at 3:18 pm

Is it too much to hope that they stay there?

Stephen Hall May 22, 2013 at 8:50 am

Obama’s parting words upon leaving So. Africa “The Lord loves a working man, don’t trust Whitey and see a doctor and get rid of it” Nathan R. Johnson.

tony May 22, 2013 at 7:53 pm

Hey that is great, another vacation for the first family, how nice!!!
I think they should take another vacation after Africa and they should
both go to HELL !!!!!!

deniro11 June 13, 2013 at 6:51 am

HELL is to good for this piece of garbage we will pray every day that a special flock of birds fly into a special plane and help all of us

peso 50 gold May 23, 2013 at 1:34 am

naturally like your website but you have to check the spelling on quite a
few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I
find it very troublesome to inform the reality nevertheless I will definitely come back again.

tommymay May 25, 2013 at 11:17 am

Allan F Brewster June 14, 2013 at 1:35 pm

Maybe he will stay when he gets there. America would be far better off.

CD Decker June 25, 2013 at 9:13 am

These people wouldn’t have left Chicago if they had to pay for it. They hate America,but they don’t hate the perks. This guy couldn’t lead a girl scout troop sucessfully!!!

Ann Holmquest June 26, 2013 at 1:52 pm

Is president Obama paying out his On my way! Pocket for his Mother In Law and nice? Or are we pay
Ing for them?

Elizabeth June 27, 2013 at 12:58 am

This guy Obama, he is not fooling anyone and the Republican cowards and Congress and the uneducated Americans keep letting him commit these crimes. WE WON’T FORGET THIS Republicans, JOHN BOEHNER, you are good for NOTHING letting this mean miserable crook and babykiller steal our money and who is constantly investigating and causing harm to innocent people. The nerve, that he is ALLOWED to spend taxpayer money in such vast and large amounts, We all get it in the end for our sins and Obama will get it too, just wait and see.
