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.

    One more middle finger to the American people, just because he can. Stickin’ it to da man, donchaknow.

    Up yours Obomba

    You freaking parasite

  • paul52

    Probably the only honest thing he said all day. Maybe he and the Mooch can retire there… permanently.

  • O not U

    It’s Colombia… with an o, not a u

  • Sasja

    This is just one of many in-your-face comments he loves to give. I wouldn’t be surprised if he said it because of the interview with Connors. Letting us know, in his own adorable (not) way that he really doesn’t give a rat’s patooty what we think.

  • saveus

    but at least it is the second time he told the truth
    the first was when he said under his plan energy prices would skyrocket

  • Taqiyyptomist

    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?

    I’d like to see some political ads about sending Obama on a PERMANENT vacation.

    Actually I’d like to see Obama, Holder, and Geithner frog marched out of the WH in leg irons.

  • Francesca

    The man has no class.

  • dunce

    He has no shame because he has no morals, he feels that he can do anything that he can not be prosecuted for and he knows the only people that can convict him is the senate and they won’t even pass a budget much less impeach the leader of their party.

    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.

    …in the “political blogs” realm, I mean.

    I’d take a few years imprisonment to be able to sock him in the mouth.

    “To Scout Out Where I May Want To Bring Michelle Back Later For Vacation Exile”

    There – fixed it for him.

  • auzerais310

    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.

    You gotta hand it to Obama: Who can do a better job at flippin’ the bird at the USA?

    I can just imaging Hugo Chavez thinking: You go, Obama!

    He can scout out hell, they can both live there as soon as he’s out of the White House.

    Then please take her to North Korea where the two of you may enjoy their single-payer system for the rest of your miserable lives.
