Obama Hawaii: Back to Reality Today

President Obama comes back to cold and blustery D.C. after two weeks in his hometown Hawaii.

As the country watched his hair go from black to almost white in the past five years, the Associated Press tell us that the Obama leaves from his longest vacation since his presidency today. In the last two weeks, the Obama family has spent a little down time in a quiet suburb of Kailua on Hawaii’s eastern coast.

As every hard-working guy should, the president has gotten in a few rounds of golf while chumming it up with a foreign official at the same time– the area has a golf course on the US Marine Corps base, and Barack Obama and New Zealand Prime Minister John Key spent a little time on the green.

Honolulu Star Advertiser tells us that the bond shared by Obama and Key represents a growing trade relationship with New Zealand, and affirms their “continued work together to… enhance regional security and support the democratic values that the United States and New Zealand share.”

To solidify the “a man’s work is never done” saying, Obama has also signed a defense bill and budget deal for the country on his time off with the ocean breeze easing the strain of making those important signatures. He’s also begun pushing for unemployment benefit reinstatement for his not-so-lucky citizens, all while avoiding a polar bear protester.

Not entirely mixing work with play, besides relaxing in his rented beachfront home, Obama has been watching Breaking Bad, visited the zoo with the family and caught some basketball games at the Diamond Head Classic tournament at the Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu.

    I can’t stand politicians. All of them are rich and all of them take many many many vacations. Trust me, they aren’t like the average American who slaves away to make money corporations. They are not working 12 hours a day under terrible work conditions.

    When will America wake up and realize that our country is just a big bunch of bullshit? We have fought 13 years of wars for nothing. Our economy is in shambles. All our rights are gone. We incarcerate the most people in the world and prison is a multi-billion dollar industry. The people we have in power commit more crimes than the average person would ever think of committing in a lifetime. Why do you think the government classifies 16 million documents a year as secret? You can get away with anything when things are secret.

    Vote them all out. Then charge them all with crimes against the people. Wait, that is right. No politicians ever go to jail. Heck, no politicians die in wars and their children don’t die in wars. Even if their children serve in wars, they are given extremely safe positions. There should be a law that all politicians who vote for a war should go to war. Then you would see exactly how important our wars are.

    Use your votes America. Vote them all out. Start over in this country.
