Yes, long after the bitterly cold weather had left Washington, DC, he had to fly to California to berate a college graduating class about global warming. Maybe he should have told the young skulls full of mush about how cold it was in D.C.

The restless president, who has compared himself to a caged animal on recent wanderings by declaring the "bear is loose," took a long Father's Day weekend away with his wife and older daughter.

The visit to the desert resort area of Palm Springs is one of the ways Obama has been trying to escape during his sixth year cloistered in the White House.

"I think frankly we've all been through a cold and bitter winter and the bear has cabin fever," said Obama friend and senior adviser Valerie Jarrett. "His cabin is a little bit bigger and harder to escape than most."


They must be kidding.............the "Bear"??
"Bitter winter"?  "Caged animal"?

I think I puked in my mouth.....................................................
I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.

Obama's (the "bear") not just on the loose. He's also hungry.

Obama's not just on the loose. He's also hungry.

WASHINGTON (AP via Yahoo) -- The bear isn't just on the loose. He's also hungry.

In this case, the bear in question is President Barack Obama, who has lately been comparing his yearnings to escape the White House security bubble to an animal breaking free from his cage. And his objects of pursuit once out in the wild include a good burger, some casual Mexican and a nice cup of hot tea.

On Monday, Obama rounded up a few participants at a White House working families summit for a short walk to a local Chipotle restaurant, where they swapped stories while enjoying the fast-food favorite.

"It's been awhile since I had the burrito bowl," Obama said after lunch.

Get outta my way, woman! I need me some burritos!

The president's advisers have been casting their boss' outings as an effort to break free from the confines of the White House and interact more with the public. But his destinations suggest the president may be equally interested in shaking up his dining routine after more than five years of White House meals.

Earlier this month, Obama grabbed Education Secretary Arne Duncan for a lunch run at a local restaurant whose owner had written the president a letter promising him the best burger if he stopped by. And last month, Obama and Joe Biden headed to a nearby Shake Shack, where the president ordered a burger and fries and the vice president indulged in a cheeseburger, fries and milkshake.

At each of these stops, the trappings of the White House bubble indeed followed along, including a heavy presence of Secret Service agents and the standard contingent of White House press. But in one recent instance, Obama violated long-standing protocol and slipped out of the White House without reporters in order to join his chief of staff Denis McDonough for a Starbucks run. The president ordered a hot tea.

Obama has also been extending his culinary adventures overseas, trading stuffy formal dinners at palaces or presidential mansions for nights on the town in foreign capitals.

During an April trip to Tokyo, Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe hit up the world-renowned sushi restaurant Sukiyabashi Jiro. While Obama lavished praise on the sushi as he departed the restaurant, local media was abuzz with reports that the president skipped some courses on the prix fixe menu.

And on an early-June trip to Paris, Obama enjoyed not one dinner, but two. He and French President Francois Hollande dined with colleagues at a restaurant near the Champs-Elysees. The president then dashed over to a second restaurant to meet friends for a leisurely two-hour outing.

Only if she isn't chowing down on fat-filled fast food with him.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!
