Uncle 'Bam's Cabin Fever

Sometimes in winter, you get cooped up for long enough you can go a little stir-crazy, ya know? I mean, swaddled in luxury with aides and maids to wait on you hand and foot, well, a regular guy or a regular gal could get a little sick of all that pampering and having needs met and such.

You've gotta get out-- just get away.

Last week the Obamas broke away from the humdrum and had a day of diversion:

"We were just tired of being in the White House," the president candidly told the gleeful second-graders at Capital City Public Charter School.


"We got out! They let us out!" Mrs. Obama said as the kids and their teachers laughed.


Tired? Give a little while.

Totally obvious first comment:

I'm already tired of them being in the White House too.

Let you out?? I can't wait to VOTE you out.

Wasn't Bush being pummeled in the papers every time he took a day off?

Can anyone say "double standard"?

Let's see, they took a two week vacation in Hawaii before the inauguration. Then not a month after said day, their on a day off? I wish I got as much holiday time.

Dave G - I set 'em up, you knock 'em down.

Bob - That is my recollection, too.

aepilot_jim - Well, just like another president in living memory, I'm sure he's worked the hardest he's ever worked in his life in the last two weeks...

Word here is Daley scolded him for sucking at being a Chicago scumbag.

Yeah... What Dave said. I yearn for the day I stand in a check-out line and DON'T see The One or Mrs. One's face on the cover of any six mags/rags. Not in my immediate future, methinks.

I hope they go out often and stay out as long as possible, and take three-week vacations every few months if it means doing less harm to our country - and in her case damage to Teh National Couture.
I hope they go to Hawaii again and decide to open up a White House West on Oprah's 102 acres on Maui - and spend a year decorating it with tiny sea-shells by hand with a hot-glue gun! Anything!

Where is the MSM complaining about time off? I wonder what's going to happen when the calls for impeachment start because he's F'ed things up so badly even the media can't cover for him????

If only the Marine guard would do the sensible thing and change the locks when they are "let out."

Security measure and so forth. Of course.

Did they read aloud from "My Pet Goat"?

I have this dream that in about a year W. gets a little tipsy and calls up The O at 0300 and hollers "How'ya like tha' job now!?" into the phone.

I'm just sayin'...

Regards,
Rabbit.
