Obama leaves Oahu after golfing, hiking, dining at Buzz's

Michelle Obama is staying in Hawaii longer as a birthday present

By Star-Advertiser staff

POSTED:
LAST UPDATED: 01:09 a.m. HST, Jan 05, 2014


President Barack Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha left Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam around 9 p.m. Saturday night following a 17-day vacation in Honolulu.

First Lady Michelle Obama, who reportedly has elected to stay in Hawaii to celebrate her 50th birthday on Jan. 17 with friends, was not at the airfield. 

The 20-vehicle presidential motorcade arrived at the airfield around 8:40 p.m.

Obama's daughters boarded Air Force One while the president met briefly with military families who came to witness the departure.

Obama boarded the plane around 8:50 p.m.

The president spent the final day of his vacation hiking with his family at the Na Pohaku o Hauwahine trail off Kapaa Quarry Road and golfing at the Kaneohe Klipper golf course.

Instead of his usual morning workout, the president went for a short 15-minute hike with Michelle Obama at the Na Pohaku O Hauwahine trail off Kapaa Quarry Road, which overlooks Kawainui Marsh. 

Na Pohaku O Hauwahine (the rocks of Hauwahine) is a basaltic rock promontory named after the Hawaiian lizard goddess, or akua mo'o. It offers a view not only of the marsh but Coconut Grove, Olomana and Maunawili.

The motorcade passed some protesters in the morning, holding signs for various causes.

At about 12:37 p.m., the president's motorcade returned to Marine Corps Base Hawaii and the president teed off at the Kaneohe Klipper course with aide Marvin Nicholson and White House chef Sam Kass.

The president golfed the Klipper course on his first day of vacation.

Before heading to Air Force One, parked at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, the Obamas grabbed some dinner at Buzz's Original Steakhouse in Kailua, arriving at 6:23 p.m., just after sunset.

They left the restaurant at 8:08 p.m.

On Friday night the president and his wife dined with friends at Morimoto in Waikiki. It was the president's second visit to the restaurant, created by Masaharu Morimoto of "Iron Chef" fame, on this vacation.

Spanning Christmas and New Year's, the 17-day vacation was Obama's longest stay in the islands so far in his presidency.

Obama, who was born in Honolulu, has spent much of his vacation playing golf and staying in a rented home in the suburb of Kailua.

He has taken his daughters to the zoo and for shave ice and watched Oregon State, coached by brother-in-law Craig Robinson, play in the first round of a basketball tournament.

Obama also has done some official business, signing a defense bill and a budget deal easing spending cuts.

The President spent his last day in Hawaii on the golf course again. I wonder if he realizes the havoc he creates when he makes these excursions. Today all routes and activities on the Kaneohe Marine Base on the streets and areas adjacent to the Klipper Golf Course were closed from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM were shut down so he could lay the course. Why does he need such elaborate security? What threat could e possibly be in fear of especially on a military base? Do the Marines and their dependents pose such a great threat. Today a troop of scouts were enjoying the efforts of their candy and popcorn sales campaign at the Putt-Putt Golf Course and Mini Water Park when their 4 hour outing (for which they aid) was cut 1 1/2 hour short without warning so the President could pay golf. These young boys must have really posed a threat warranting their being told to leave the area.

Anyone who thinks they are soooo important that they warrant the shutting down of the Pali highway for their own personal use should not be welcome in Hawaii.

I say "go home" to him and his Secret service BS.

IRT: saywhatouthink: Anyone and that includes you, if elected as the president of the United States, would receive that type of security service from the Secret Service. The president has no control of how, when where security will be enforced whenever he travels or wherever he travels. These security measures are preplanned by the Secret Services, not by the president, because that is the purpose of their job and function, 24/7 365 days a year. If you can't understand why, how or when security will be provided for the president, then you need to really learn more about the office of the president of the United States and the functions of the Secret Services. I'm sure most of the citizens of this country truly understands why much emphasis is put on security and protecting the president, especially at any public gathering or function. Let me emphasize, if you were the president, you would receive the same security measures but people with your mentality will never understand why, when and how, Secret Service must inconvenience the general public during every president's travel. Like any citizen, the president has every right to spend his vacation in Hawaii if he chooses to and majority of the people that are inconvenience during his stay, are willing to be patient because they understand.

I would expect him to give some thought to inconvenience he is causing to the local people every time he goes somewhere. That fact that his schedule is unannounced should be enough to protect him from threats if any really existed. This is Hawaii, not Chicago.

It's sad that so many who support Obama can't see this collectivist for what he is. That said, it's also sad that many can't accept that others don't love Obama and blame this lack of love on race. Such sentiments are racist themselves. It is interesting to see how security has increased for him over the years. Indeed this year and last AF #1 remains parked behind a temporary visual screening system to limit the ability of military personnel and others with base access to get a clear and close-up view of doings on the ramp. I don't know if it's all really necessary, but it may be. But for those who believe Presidential security is over-the-top on Oahu, it's even more intense and disruptive on the mainland. And once Obama is finally a former president high levels of security will continue, albeit not as intense. The distaste many feel for the security measures now seen on our little island may be a good reason for Obama to retire to Chicago. Indeed, the shooting gallery/murder capital of the U.S. that is So. Chicago, near where Obama's home is and where he, Jesse, Jesse Jr. Rod "Blago," Resko and many others have raped their so-called "community" as "community organizers," might benefit from having additional security of any stripe in the neighborhood. And it's only fitting that Obama live in or near yet another hellhole that he and other Leftist-progressive policies have created and nurtured.

Your no brainer mentality revolves around not taking into consideration, all that could have gone wrong especially with one of the helicopters crashing and the Navy SEALS lives in harms way. The Navy SEALS lives were the most important aspect of the mission, hoping that they would all come back alive before he actually made that decision whether to abort or not. It's easy to sit back and say taking out Bin Laden was a no brainer when you, yourself, is a no brainer when you really don't know what you're talking about.
