'Restless' Obama and family head to Camp David

A HT: Adrienne's Corner


Saturday, February 7th 2009, 7:25 AM

It took Barack Obama two years to get to the White House, but barely more than two weeks for wanderlust to set in.

"He's a bit of a restless soul," Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Friday when asked if Obama was feeling "cooped up in the White House." Try that line with your boss next time you want to get away from the office

Saturday, Obama and his family are due to head for Camp David for their first overnight stay at the presidential retreat in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains. Yep - two whole weeks of insulting the intelligence of the American people can make you very, very weary!

Next week, Air Force 1 will be rolling out of the hangar to take him on four trips. This greenie-weenie wants you to live like a cave dweller to "save the planet", but has no problem firing up this filthy gas hog. Reminds me of the inauguration when they had to close down one whole section of an airport to park the private jets of the Hollywood elite.

On Monday and Tuesday, he plans day trips to Elkhart, Ind., and Fort Myers, Fla, to pitch his economic recovery plan. Earth to Obama - they don't want it!!!

On Thursday, he returns to Springfield, Ill., where he served as a state legislator, to mark Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday.

Then late next Friday, he plans to fly to Chicago his hometown, to spend the weekend and go out Saturday night with wife, Michelle, for a Valentine's Day dinner date. And you, fellow Americans, are paying for President Obama to fly his wife to Chicago for dinner!!

Check out Adrienne's Corner often, she is a kick! But she has it right on about the politics. Thanks Adrienne!!
