  • I am so happy he is having a well-deserved rest!So proud that he dared to stand up to Israel and allowed a UN vote to condemn the illegal occupation of Palestinian land to go forward. Trump is on his knees to serve Israel at the expense of US interests and security. Obama has it right. Again.

      • Many from the Israeli left agree with Obama and condemn the vicious far right party now in power. Obama joined the rest of the civilized world in condemning the illegal occupation which will put Israel and the USA at risk. Trump is easy to manipulate and is a bungler.

        • allie you better go learn about the history of the middle east before you start condemning Israel. maybe you will learn something.

        • So now pizza girl is a Middle East expert too? Go for a walk or something allie, you know, take your pathetic critical beeching life for a long hike.

        • Well all you other wahoos thing you know more then others about world politics. Yet voted for duffus trumpf.

      • Yeah, sure, Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the secular state of Israel and has been for 3000 years.

        And today’s Palestinians are yester-epoch’s Philistines so, y’know, just treat ’em like dogs and trample ’em underfoot.

  • SA is that all you have to report he went to the Gym and golf golf golf golf golf and more goooooooooooooooooooooolf, why will the president try something else like skydiving. old man bush does.

    • I don’t know, maybe the SA could of asked for an interview and asked Barry why he supported Cadwell? What Barry thinks of the disaster that is rail? The HPD chief under investigation? The city prosecutor and the chief’s wife getting in trouble? We get plenny issues for discuss – but yeah I know bruddah works out and golfs and goes to dinner. I’m happy for him. Do have to say I admire how Barry stays connected with his local boys. Even after he’s gotten the most powerful job in the world he never forgot his friends from Hawaii. That is pretty cool, local style.

      • Bobby Titcomb, “commercial fisherman,” sure must not catch many fish unless there is ahi to be hooked a golf course water hazard. Wonder what his GET license number is or the name of his “business.” A good reporter should be able to find those.

    • Agree…lets see articles akin to the national media reports about how much these boondoggle vacays are costing the taxpayer? Both federal, state, and city costs. History will show that despite being charsmatic and the first black president, that he was one of the worst managers of the federal govt. ever. With scandels in the VA, OPM, Obamacare, EPA, IRS, a more divided nation etc. The true legacy of the Obama tenure is the Trump presidency, a dubious honor at best.

  • President Obama stabbed yet another “ally” in the back. Any wonder why the world burns under his watch? He hides from foes and back-stabs friends. Israel, along with allies like the U.K., Australia and Japan are staunch supporters of our values, yet President Obama doesn’t seem to care. Obama can’t leave soon enough. A failed president.

      • allie that’s the only ally we have in the middle east. thank god for that, remember a lot of our intelligence reports from the middle east come from Israel. you should learn that and maybe you won’t condemn them like all the other liberals with mental disorders condemn them which you are one of them.

        • At least the “liberals with mental disorders” know how to spell and construct sentences.

          Reading is fundamental!

  • The audacity! Playing golf while somebody’s erstwhile president-elect is poring over the reams of paper that constitute his daily intelligence briefings …

    … oh wait.

    • Stop whining usmc. Your retired,so you are on the tit of entitlement,ss,and tricare. You think you pay for that or do the majority of US tax payers do it.

      • Well there Boss Man from the tune of your comment to usmc-vet, that you’ve never served in the military. Otherwise you would know that he’s earned not entitled to any and all benefits that he receives from that service. He paid his dues, Have you?
