Skip to comments.Yes he can: Obama returns to Indonesia for family vacation

From white water rafting in Bali to visiting temples on Java, former U.S. President Barack Obama's private family holiday is being closely tracked in Indonesia where he spent four years as a child.
Obama remains popular in the world's most populous Muslim nation and his trip has been splashed across the media during an extended public holiday to mark the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.
Obama was six when he moved to Jakarta after his American mother, Ann Dunham, married an Indonesian man following the end of her marriage to Obama's Kenyan father.
"I feel proud that my friend became a president," said Sonni Gondobooger, 56, a former classmate of Obama at the Menteng 01 state elementary school in Jakarta.
Gondobooger showed a class photograph of himself standing behind a young Obama, who was wearing a school beret.
"He was a clever boy. Whenever a teacher asked him to solve a problem in front of the class, he could do it," Gondobooger told Reuters, adding he hoped to meet the former president again.
Obama is due to meet President Joko Widodo on Friday at the palace in Bogor, south of Jakarta, and visit the capital on Saturday.

Going home for some home cooking. Poodle.....mmmmmm good eatn’
No extradition treaty.
I have no problem with the Obama’s going on vacation. I wish they would for the next eight years at least. Enjoy your lives. Stay away from Washington DC....homeschool that young brat. The older girl can go to the elite University, but the other 3 stay away going to 5-star hotels all over the world for all I care. I think once he starts “working”, we are going to LOVE these times when he is off the radar. Be careful what you wish for. I know he is going to be a pain in the butt once he begins going all over the country speaking for Democratic candidates for 2018 and then the census......Yieks.
Good to see he gets to visit his real country of loyalty
Back to his raghead roots. He’s a brazen bahsted. Must think he’s untouchable. If only we had an Elliott Ness right now.
I hope his return is permanent. He can only eat hot dogs here. He can eat real dogs at his real home. By the way, has anyone seen their dog Bo recently?
islam is a political system whose entire dynamic is based on subjugation of all and everything that is non-islamic.
Does soetoro still insist he’s a Christian? If so, it would be apostasy for these muslims to so honor a non-muslim.
‘Seems a pretty good indicator to me that soebarkah
was practicing taqiiya all along.
Again, the first paragraph.
I thought he was going to lead the charge and rally the Resist movement to victory over the hated Trump.
I thought he was going to speak out energetically to lead the effort to Defend His Presidential Legacy.
What happened to those initiatives, which were trumpeted by the MSM-Democrats when he promised them?
For those who don’t know, Bali is mostly Hindu but really the only country in Indonesia which is.
When visiting Bali, the closer you get to Java, the more radicals you see.
There were lots of Muslims in Bali when I was there in 2001 just before the Bali bombing.
I suspect there are many more now.
He’s home at last! Pull his passport so the son of a b can not get back into the usa.
Sounds like a plan to me.
We’ll send a PT boat to pick up any SS and rescue them.
Gotta’ get me some of that dogmeat!!
