Skip to comments.Obama Already Thinking of Summer at Camp David (after one weekend vacation there)
Posted on 02/09/2009 3:49:46 PM PST by lewisglad
President Barack Obama made his first weekend visit to Camp David, and Monday gave a thumbs up to the retreat in Marylands Catoctin Mountains.
"It was beautiful," he said Monday. "The girls just had a great time. They had a lot of fun. You can see that during the summer it's going to be a nice place to spend a lot of time. Hit a few golf balls. Played a little basketball."
The Obamas made it a group outing to the camp.
"Sasha brought one of her friends and then a friend of Michelle's and ours came up with her two kids," Obama said aboard Air Force One as he flew to Indiana for a town hall meeting pitching his economic stimulus proposal.
First Lady Michelle Obama gave it great marks as well during a visit Monday to the Interior Department.
"Some of the greatest adventures that we experience in life here in this nation, like family vacations, and camping, and hiking, and fishing, if you're blessed to have access to those resources, are possible because of the work that you do right here in this department," she said.
"And Barack and I and the girls, as you may have read, just had a little retreat away. We visited Camp David for the first time, and got to experience the beautiful, the beauty of those grounds, and it was just wonderful to get a bit of a break and to spend some quality time as a family in nature."
The secluded, and heavily guarded, retreat features several cabins on heavily wooded grounds. A key attraction for First Families is the ability to walk around outdoors out of sight of the press or public.

I’d better keep my mouth shut because nothing good will come out today.
On the other hand, Dang that man-child is lazy!
After all these years, finally, a stamp of approval has been put on Camp David. And by none other than the Messiah and his family, after their FIRST visit!
I always wondered if Camp David was worthy of royalty, now I know.
No grades from Occidental, Columbia or Harvard Law School.
40 hours as a junior associate at a law firm.
Slim record as State Senator in IL.
No record, except Global Poverty Tax, in US Senate. Voted present 130 times.
Wow, this guy is a hard worker, he needs a vacation.
Who would think hiring a street walker with a wafer thin resume would net you an experienced leader. And look all we got was a bedraggled jive talking street walker who smokes.
And if the Republican had smoked — during the campaign ...
This clown actually thinks he’s hit the lottery or become a rock star.
He has NO perception of the job he was just elected to do.
-Just like most democrats, they claw their way to the ‘top’ and think they’re now priviledged characters.
Loathing, contempt and disgust. I might as well shorten it to “LCD” right now.
And besides the White House he’ll be stinking up Camp David too with this cigarette smoke.
I, as a tax-paying American, am willing to let the Obama family have a four-year vacation at Camp David, all expenses paid, if we are allowed to place a capable and patriotic person in the Oval Office in his stead.
Id better keep my mouth shut because nothing good will come out today.
...and you know what Mom said!
It occurred to me today that I am unable to relate what occurred to me today without suffering the loss of posting privileges for life.
Now Michelle has two things she likes about America.
I agree. Good idea.
I think I might be able to afford to take another vacation in about ten years. Thanks to all the inflationary stimulus, it will probably cost half a million for a week at the beach.
He sounds like he’s looking forward to summer vacation—maybe 3 months’ worth.
Really, does Obama smoke? Cigarettes?
Well isn’t that special.
Well, he can’t vacation in Chicago, that, would be like vacationing next to a pig farm.
If this had been Bush, the headline would have screamed: “Chimposter goofs of at Camp David as economy crashes.”
If this had been Bush, the headline would have screamed: Chimposter goofs of at Camp David as economy crashes.
We have a winner!
