Obama at Colombian Summit: My Real Agenda Is “To Scout Out Where I May Want To Bring Michelle Back Later For Vacation” (Video)

By: Andrea Ryan

Forget leadership. Obama’s searching for a hot spot for the next family vacay.

While speaking at the Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia, which cost our government tens of millions of dollars and our Secret Service its integrity, Obama revealed that it was really just a vacation scouting trip for his wife.

Via Lucianne, according to CNS News,

Just two days after President Barack Obama gave a sharply edged response to news anchor Larry Conners of KMOV in St. Louis after Conners had asked the president about Americans who “get frustrated and even angered when they see the first family jetting around [to] different vacations and so forth,” Obama told a panel at the Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia that part of his job there was to scout out locations for a future vacation with First Lady Michelle Obama.

Obama was speaking on a panel with Colombian President Juan Mauel Santos and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff when he made the remarks. The panel was moderated by Chris Matthews of MSNBC.

“I want to thank President Santos and the people of Colombia for the extraordinary hospitality in the beautiful city of Cartagena,” said Obama. “We’re having a wonderful time. And usually when I take these summit trips, part of my job is to scout out where I may want to bring Michelle back later for vacation.  So we’ll make sure to come back sometime in the near future.” …

Back on Feb. 21, Washington Secrets columnist Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner reported that up to that point members of the First Family had taken 16 extended vacations during Obama’s presidency.

The man has no shame.  On the heels of his embarrassing interview with Larry Conners, where he was called out for angering Americans with all of the lavish vacations the Obamas have taken, he actually made that statement.  So, while the rest of Americans struggle to get to their next paychecks, if they’re lucky enough to still have one, Michelle Obama is fanning herself with vacation brochures on Columbia.

Let the people eat cake.

    I think what he means is, he’s scouting out a place where he can go should he be banished from the United States of America for his multiple crimes.

    I mean, geez. How many prominent Communists — and Nazis, for that matter — after all the mass graves, fled to South American countries? Where else would he go?

    Heh. You said “This is just one of many in-your-face comments he loves to give.


    LOL, I wish we could embed images into our comments. Like so many other websites out there.

    (No political blogs, I’ve noticed, have allowed their commenters this ability. Mostly gaming blogs — for instance: http://forums.runicgames.com/viewforum.php?f=30 — if you go into any thread in this forum — about a game which is forthcoming and eagerly awaited by a particular fanbase — you will see images that users have embedded into their comments. I understand that this could get out hand in this forum — but with moderation, this could be an INCREDIBLY COOL addition to GP’s comments section.)

    Jim — you could be the first. The initiator of a web trend. Many other types of sites allow this in their comments (go to runicgames, find their hosting service and web-dev platform), and, AFAIK, right now nobody allows the embedding of images into commenters’ comments.

    Oh how I wish that Air Traffic Control would inform the pilot of Air Force One as it approaches entering US airspace, that by popular demand, it is denying them landing rights or authorization to even reenter the United States. And until they dispose of its now exiled passenger, they will simply have to turn around and either return to Colombia, or find some other country, like Cuba or Venezuela, to land in.

    HONOLULU (AP) — President Barack Obama took his family and friends for a final vacation treat before heading back to Washington.

    After an afternoon at the beach, the Obama party stopped at Island Snow for shave ice, a Hawaiian snow cone. First lady Michelle Obama, daughters Malia and Sasha, and about a dozen friends joined the president for one of the rare public stops of his nearly two-week

    Obama Takes Family Out for Final Vacation Treat

    Island Snow is a favorite local stop for the first family; Obama took his daughters there earlier in their trip.

    The president, dressed in a white polo shirt, black shorts, flip flops and a Chicago White Sox baseball cap, paid for the treats with a $100 bill

    The Obamas are leaving Hawaii late Monday and arriving in Washington on Tuesday morning.


    What a lie. This is becoming exhausting and humiliating to watch these hypo-crites.

    Beyond arrogance and gall. I think he has some mental problems. At first I thought it was ego but now, it is become insanity.

  • Patty

    Homeless are wondering where their next meal is coming from. Homeowners are losing their homes. Gas prices are through the roof.

    No budget is sight and yet, Obama wonders where to go on their next vacation, it is reckless and this is a seating president. Who has spent 4 and nearly 5 trillion dollars in failed policies.

    America is suffering at the hands of a Mad Man.

    Media Malpractice

    While the investigation into Martin’s death was proceeding, the media still found time in recent weeks to badly mishandle the murder of Shaima Alawadi, an Iraqi woman in San Diego. Her head had been bashed in with a tire iron, and next to her body was a note calling her a terrorist and telling her to leave the country. Police were quick to urge caution as to the killer’s motives​—​but the media reacted in predictable fashion: The Daily Beast, Reuters, and many others ran sensational headlines suggesting Alawadi’s death was a hate crime.

    Alawadi was in the midst of divorcing her husband, and her 17-year-old daughter was distraught about her own arranged marriage to a cousin. Police subsequently found the daughter had received a text message reading “The detective will find out tell them cnt talk.” The investigation now centers on her family. (Even after all this emerged, Time refused to give up grinding the axe of identity politics: “Shaima Alawadi’s Murder: A Hate Crime Against Women?”)

    As for the Martin case, last week George Zimmerman was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. The right thing to do is reserve judgment until the evidence emerges in a court of law. One hopes that the media haven’t poisoned the well such that Zimmerman can’t get a fair trial. Meanwhile, it’s worth remembering America has a black president, and the country has seen undeniable racial progress. Given the political leanings and professional standards of America’s newsrooms, it’s increasingly implausible to say the media have.

  • Patty

    Vacations galore but their is a problem in Washington and it will be coming to light when those in Congress and other representatives will lose in their next election. You see, their words about the Zimmerman are going to haunt them. Time will only tell what damage they have done to the Zimmerman family.

    This president and Holder remained silent while their party reamed a young man without hearing the entire evidence and his going to trial. I believe that they have damaged the case and I can’t wait to see the final end to this case. I hope that for Zimmerman he gets off.

    But for the leaders who are so racist in Washington the voters will make sure that these will be their last “serving” up America the hate and the racism.

  • regularguy

    Further evidence that God reigns…Obama can’t help himself, he unknowingly affirms God’s omnipresence with his gaffes of corrupt, immoral turpitude of self-satisfaction. Obama literally cannot help himself; he exposes his hedonistic obsessions with vacations and the high life, when, in fact, his ultimate reward for service to others would grant him the power and prestige he so covets. Sad, really, he grew up with hedonists who steered him away from the life of true reward.

    Look up these terms:

    One-World Government

    Blend well. Then realize Obama didn’t where he is all by himself. Plenty too many of Americans would support everything outlined in the above and usher him into ultimate power.

  • Time

    Every time anyone questions Obama or his wife he or they will spitefully do exactly what it is they were questioned about. Their in spite of and deliberate in your face stance is exactly their mocking, weapon to say to everyone we do not give a rats azz what you think, what you want or what you believe we are exceeding. We will continue to do what we want at any cost, at any time and for any reason. They are spiteful people and do not care what we the people think. They are laughing all the way to the bank and every night before they retire, they are having the last laugh on this entire country.. Stop us if you can, but you can’t. We will do what ever we want and you all must pay for it and eat dirt if you do not like it… Hahahaha.. That is their way and they will continue to do it just as Oblamo just did in this call out. He purposely made that statement that he was scouting out where he can take his wife on a near, future vacation. Knowing well that he was just asked this exact question and the reasons why he was asked the question.. He is a mocker, instigator and a trouble maker, divider.. He will never mend this country and join the people together. He will incite and instigate as that is all he knows how to be and he laughs as he does it.. He gets a charge out of getting a rise out of the people and watching as they all get fired up… He is the boil on everyone’s but that will not go away…And he loves it…

    This shows just how much anger Larry Conners provoked by daring to ask the president an embarassing question…..Obama still has steam coming out of his ears.

    Thousands witness Holy Fire miracle in Jerusalem

    Awaiting the Holy Fire, the congregation chants Kyrie Eleison, or “Lord, have mercy.” When the patriarch comes out of the tomb, he offers prayers and distributed the flames to the congregation.

    Some pilgrims have claimed that flames received from the Holy Fire do not burn their hair, faces or clothes during the first 33 minutes of its appearance.

    On Sunday, the Latin Patriarch of the Roman Catholic Church in Jerusalem will lead Easter mass at Holy Sepulcher. Protestants will attend a morning service in the Garden Tomb outside Jerusalem’s walled Old City.

    The principles of openness and universal access that underpinned the creation of the internet three decades ago are under greater threat than ever, according to Google co-founder Sergey Brin. In an interview with the Guardian, Brin warned there were “very powerful forces that have lined up against the open internet on all sides and around the world”. “I am more worried than I have been in the past,” he said. “It’s scary.” The threat to the freedom of the internet comes, he claims, from a combination of governments increasingly trying to control access and communication by their citizens, the entertainment… {…}

You can retire there and we will be all the better for it.

    No laughing, no exaggeration, no kidding around, just a simple statement of fact. Of course, Romney and the rest of the Country Club Republicans are so scarred to death of Obama’a skin color, they would never dream of using this in a political ad this fall. They are more interested in kissing Obama’s a$$. That way, they think they will not be called”raaacist” on the all important cocktail party circuit. I will assure you, Romney was MUCH tougher on Santorum than he will ever be on Obama.. And yes, Romney will be villified as an evil Mormon raaacist.

    Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetero, aka Harrison J. Boulen….the “Manchurian President.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6tvti9um6k

  • Multitude

    This is a remarkably sincere confession by Barack, even if he attempted to present it as a sort of punchy tongue-in-cheek bit of humor. That he’d feel compelled to say such true-but-unpopular thus “You know I’m just joking (but I’m not)” claims is fascinating and may suggest he’s extremely agitated at his general incapacity to be who he really is. He’s tired of the facade. Like he told Putin’s lapdog, “I’ll be able to come out of the closet after this stupid election and I can be the fascist strongman without having to fake this nicey nice crap anymore.”

    But even more interesting is Barack’s acknowledgment that even in humor, the sole purpose of other people is for his exploitation. The “War on Women” isn’t about equality for women; just look at Obama’s inner circle of men or his golf partners for that matter. Women are about exploitation, “getting their emotions worked up” so the “little irrational creatures” vote for Obama. They’re prostitutes when he at least gives them something in exchange for their exploitation (free birth control? how repugnant of a gift is that from a man who exploits your gender for his power?) and when he expects you to do it for free as Barack’s Secret Service has done, you’re merely a slut.

    It’s interesting how we ultimately realize the reason the left is so viciously angry at Rush Limbaugh isn’t that he diminished the quality of women, but that he exposed the Left’s real views. Barack Obama’s world is one where women are merely a utility there for the exploiting and taking.

  • Judith

    The defense of this outrage will be that it is polite to compliment the country one is visiting and that Obama was merely paying homage. Yeah, right!
    Woke this tax day morning with a thought that I’d like to offer for consideration. Obama has been pushing the Buffet Rule of late for the reason that it is not fair that Buffet’s secretary pays a higher tax rate …now, forget arguing logic and the fact that capital gains SHOULD be taxed at a lower rate…how ’bout this…SINCE THE SECRETARY IS TAXED HIGHER, LET’S LOWER HER RATE!!! WOW! How radical is this!The Feds will continue to spend every cent they get their hands on and how about making them depend on less like the rest of us…It is way past due for tax simplification and reform…where is Steve Forbes when we need him!

    When Obama asks for Romney’s 17 years of tax returns, ask for the last 34 years of Obama’s sealed documents OR we will settle for all his college years. I want to see his tax returns and who paid. Then his transcripts.

    Vacations and war on women. They go hand in hand because this guy understands the poor working woman to such an extent that he sends a 13 YR OLD and 25 AGENTS on SPRING BREAK. The PROFESSIONAL MSM Poop Scoopers took it down off of the internet. Took it down. Ask yourself if the PROFESSIONAL MSM Scoopers would have taken anything about the Bush family down.

    Sending a 13 year old on this type of trip is about the most outrageous thing I have ever heard of and I have heard of quite a bit.

    Did any of these agents sent home go on that trip also? That is a way to put it back in the news.

    And it seems like this site is lacking humor, as NONE OF YOU PEOPLE CAN REALIZE HE IS MAKING A JOKE. Usually when you are hosted by someone, you complement them on their place and location, so he did the polite thing and made a small joke about it.

    I’m glad I found this website, its a good case study for the end results of generations of incest.

  • Questionman

    Could there by any further proof the Racist right are oblivious to American History? Yeah. They prove it every single day!

    This is NO different. Today Former Vice President to the Bush Adminstration, Dick Cheney called President Obama “An Unmitigated Disaster ” PLEASE!

    So what is the most disliked man in America talking about? Perhaps Dick meant that President Obama had the job of “cleaning up” the unmitigated disaster that he and Bush left at the end of 2008. Because most economists agree that the U.S. economy was about to go over a cliff and President Obama saved it. Not only did the President save the economy from a depression but he also passed universal health care and reformed Wall Street – a very successful legislative tenor.
    Not that anything Dick Cheney says matters otherwise I would say that he owes President Obama an apology for calling him an unmitigated disaster. Dick Cheney had an 11% approval rating when he left office. He has no credibility with most Americans. Perhaps Mr. Cheney is “projecting” or believes the President is an unmitigated disaster because he hasn’t started any new wars or can actually travel to other nations without being arrested.

    Show us the evidence . there is NO voter fraud worth diddly in this country . OBAMA was elected by a clear majority of moderate and sane Americans, not the right wing haters on this page (thank goodness), not to mention I e-mailed FactCheck.org back in 2009 and I got the facts. No there was NO voter fraud, they are just horrible excuses made for why Barack Obama won.

    Since all he has to do is say something, and republicans decide they must do exactly the opposite he divides the country in two right wing racist and everyone else, there are also wealthy people who are not racist but just greedy, Libertarians who would opose almost any Dem, or Rep. and people like myself who see Obama as too far right, and want true leftist socialism. HOWEVER These people are not going to be united,and are no further divided than they were in the past most of them felt the same about Bush, Clinton, Regan etc. as they do about Obama It is only the right wing racist who have made this sharp distiction between Obama and others and are against every policy Obama does even if it was once a part of their platform So no you do not have to be a racist to hate Obama, but I fail to see any other reason to think he is so differant from George W….except..

    Bin Laden is dead, GM is alive, We’re out of Iraq, the Markets are higher than at the end of 2008, we have more jobs than the end of 2008, and we’ve got a foot out the door in Afghanistan. Definitely lacking in the success department. Sorry President Obama hasn’t been the failure you wish he was because you hate America for electing a black man as President.

    I don’t think I need to show the data to draw a distinction vs. the right-wing media’s treatment of the current first lady. There are, of course, the common nicknames — “Wookie” and “Moochelle” — stuff that just didn’t happen with Laura Bush (the worst I could find in my search was a post that referred to Barbara Bush as “Babs”). But beyond that, there’s the stream of blog posts *dedicated* to the first lady. She has a big butt! She shouldn’t tell my children what to eat! She takes too many vacations! Her outfits are too expensive! Her outfits are too ugly! And so on — with the meme being that she’s simply not fit for the White House. These aren’t casual mentions — *entire blog posts* are regularly written. I may have missed some examples. Again, here’s the search: http://bit.ly/yhrfzo
    When you have recist remarks like Stephen.George’s “MOOCHELLE” it makes me sick to see it in print.

    Right wing loonies and racists are angry that a black woman can be First Lady and eat lobster, they want black women serving them food, not eating with them.


    Every day, Every time I am ALWAYS proven right. Anyone who hates Obama a are disgusting, hateful racists. And the proof is this these comments! Wow, you name-callers sure are something. First Obama was a socialist, a leftist, a Communist, a Kenyan, and a Nazi. So now that we all know that stuff is BS, the latest is he’s a closet Republican? So the Repubs are now shooting their own? Precious!!!

    Enough of this craziness. If most of you ignorant, head in the sand morons could read and not just listen to garbage from the hate mongers you would be better off. Some of you should read what you have written and ask yourself if it has any logic to it.

    I hate it when people call President Obama a “radical Marxist” even when it makes no sense. It proves my point to the racist right inability to use American History. Here’s a president under which the stock market has doubled since he took office; rescued the auto industry (US/Canadian investment was paid back- we all made a profit on that); signed legislation that owners of a company can vote on compensation for executives; more private sector jobs were created in 2010 alone than all eight of the Bush years combined; tax cuts for 3.5m small businesses (that’s small, not govt-owned or lobbyist-controlled). If he’s a Marxist, he’s not very good at it.

    Are all of you people serious? Do you seriously not recall that the last president holds the record for most vacation days?

    And it seems like this site is lacking humor, as NONE OF YOU PEOPLE CAN REALIZE HE IS MAKING A JOKE. Usually when you are hosted by someone, you complement them on their place and location, so he did the polite thing and made a small joke about it.

    Stop calling this man a POS & SCOAMF, you disgusting racist hateful a-holes. That’s what you are disgusting racist hateful a-holes and it shows.

    Warren, I really, truly do pity you. You’re so consumed with hatred, with absolute surety that the black guy in the White House is out to destroy America…and your hatred has blinded you to all that he’s done that is good and right. Has he been perfect? You’d find precisely zero liberals who would think so.

    We can be thankful that Kerry was not elected President, or we would have had an a-hole in office way before Obama. Bush will go down as the worst president in the past 100 years.

    most WORKING vacation days..

    there, put it in context for you..

    [Bush actually had everything he needed at the White House set up
    at his ranch..he also vacationed at the WH connected Camp David..]

    bottom line, it doesn’t matter how many vacation days Bush or anyone
    else took.. what matters is Obama making a big deal over US having to
    sacrifice as he lives high off the hog..

    Raises question about multiple trips while Americans struggle

    [Before that, according to the Washington Examiner, the
    Obamas had taken 16 vacations at taxpayer expense.

    They include a President’s Day 2012 ski trip to Colorado, an extended
    stay in Hawaii at Christmas 2011, a Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., vacation
    during summer of 2011, a trip to Africa and Botswana in June 2011,
    another Colorado ski vacation on President’s Day 2011, Christmas 2011
    for an extended trip to Hawaii.

    Before that it was Florida, Chicago, Spain, Martha’s Vineyard again, Mount
    Desert Island, Maine, Chicago, New York City, Hawaii, Yellowstone National
    Park, Grand Canyon and Martha’s Vineyard again.

    The report defended the Obama trips, citing 30
    visits President Bush made to his Texas ranch.

    “But his have become more controversial because of the costs associated
    with moving the first family to a public vacation spot, unlike the Bushes to
    their remote ranch in Crawford, Texas. For example, the Hawaii Reporter
    said the first family’s 2011 Christmas vacation in Hawaii would exceed $1.5

    The report continued, “Critics and even some in his own party say the
    vacations present a bad image at a time when many Americans are
    struggling to get by during the recession.”]

    Obama v Bush


    [By 47 to 45 percent, Americans say Obama is a better president
    than George W. Bush. But that two point margin is down from a
    23 point advantage one year ago.]


    [It could be argued that saying Obama has been about the same as Bush
    is also a negative evaluation, given that Bush left office with low approval
    ratings and Americans generally did not judge his presidency to be very

    Indeed, those who say Obama has been about the same as Bush generally
    view Obama negatively, with 27% approving and 62% disapproving of the
    way Obama is handling his job as president.

    Thus, in order to win re-election, Obama likely needs to convince
    voters he is doing a better job than his predecessor did.]


    [It’s Official: President Obama is Better Than George W. Bush!]

    thank God opinions facts do not make..

    re: “racist”

    [Thursday mornings at 9:00 a.m. I do a live version of my Daily Rant on
    the Craig Henne Show which airs on the Patriot Radio Network. Yesterday
    I told Craig and his listening audience the dirty little secret every black
    person knows–a dirty little secret that even the whites who know that
    secret are afraid to voice in private, much less publicly.

    It’s the dirty little secret that is the pink elephant in the middle of the
    room that undermines every conversation on/about race, regardless of
    where said conversation takes place. It is also the single greatest crime
    (yes, I said crime), of which the Obamas are guilty. I’m talking about the
    raw animus, per definition and actions, that many blacks privately harbor
    against their perception of white society as a whole.

    The white politically correct are dutifully ignorant to the reality of this.
    They blame the malevolence on historical actions, white racism, and
    on social inequality. The truth is that it has nothing to do with any of
    those things and everything to do with the socialist encroachment into
    the psyche of the first generation of post-slavery blacks.

    Certainly, while white guilt and demagoguery by nefarious, opportunistic blacks acerbated this animus, the Obamas have used their overt racial animus toward whites in a way that is nothing short of criminal. In my syndicated column, “Michelle Obama’s Inner Demons” I described in detail her open hostility toward whites.]

    Not a peep from the media. The dumb obama voters(I know, redundant) need to see this. The vacationer-in-chief working hard to plan their next vacation. He MUST go!
