Obama, 6 Years In, Fights a Case of Cabin Fever

President Barack Obama seems to have caught a bad case of cabin fever.

Since taking office, Obama has periodically grumbled about the claustrophobia that sets in when his every move is surrounded by intense security, rendering it nearly impossible to enjoy the simple pleasures that private citizens take for granted. But in recent days, the president has made more of a point to get out.

“The bear is loose!” Obama declared this week after leaving the White House on foot, ditching his motorcade and his suit jacket in favor of fresh air as he headed to the Interior Department.

Tourists milling about near the White House were incredulous, never having expected to see the leader of the free world in the flesh on a steamy Wednesday afternoon. One woman squealed with delight; another suggested she thought it might be an Obama impostor.

“It’s good to be out,” Obama said.

Traditionally, whenever the president leaves the White House, he travels by motorcade or helicopter, insulating him from the sights around him in what’s colloquially referred to as “the bubble.” Before he arrives at his destination, Secret Service agents have already prepared layer upon layer of security that generally keeps Obama at a distance from anything unpredictable.

Life in the bubble can feel suffocating, as many presidents have attested. For Obama, relief frequently comes in the form of a weekend golf outing where, from the secure confines of a military base, he can at least look from left to right without his view being obscured by barricades, reporters or enough police officers to defend a small country.

But every once in a while, the golf course just doesn’t cut it.

“I don’t get a chance to take walks very often,” Obama quipped this week. “Secret Service gets a little stressed. But every once in a while I’m able to sneak off.”

Nearly six years into his presidency, Obama seems to be sneaking off just a bit more often.

Last week, diners at a Shake Shack near the White House looked up from their cheeseburgers to see Obama and Vice President Joe Biden stroll in to the restaurant, where Obama hoisted himself onto the counter and slid across as workers cheered him on. The White House said Obama was there to promote government-financed work projects and a proposed minimum wage increase, but the hastily arranged visit raised a few eyebrows.

Three days later, Obama was en route to a fundraiser in suburban Maryland when his motorcade made a detour. Pulling in to a local park, Obama popped in to a baseball field where a handful of Little League teams were getting ready for the big game. Smiling ear to ear, Obama lobbed a few balls toward home plate and posed for photos, his shirt and tie standing out among the sea of blue-and-white uniforms.

White House officials offered little explanation for the stop, other than to point out that Obama was scheduled later in the week to travel to Cooperstown, New York, to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. That visit, officials said, was aimed at promoting tourism to the U.S. as a way to boost the economy.

“And, no, this not just an excuse to go the Baseball Hall of Fame,” Obama’s senior adviser, Dan Pfeiffer, wrote in a blog post, seeking to pre-empt a critique the White House was apparently expecting.

Jeebus, talk about putting the “sick” in “sycophantic”! Is this what passes for investigative reporting at AP now? I realize that some people will say this is racist but Obama is the laziest POTUS in modern history.

Ever notice that whenever Obama acts “spontaneously” the White House photographer is always on hand to grab a couple flattering pictures?

But wait! There’s more!


Jim Wallis, a member of President Obama’s faith council, has a rule when he coaches the Tigers in the Northwest Washington Little League’s 10- to 12-year-old division: No talking politics with the influential Washington parents whose kids dot the rosters.

But he made an exception Monday evening when the leader of the free world showed up unexpectedly at Friendship Park in Northwest as the team was warming up. “Obama smiled and said, ‘Wallis! What are you doing here?’ ” Wallis recalled Tuesday.

Wallis, whose son Jack plays on the Tigers, had the same question for the president, who had made the unscheduled stop on the way to a Democratic fundraiser in Potomac. Why this park, on this day? The White House noted to traveling reporters that the president was mingling with the pint-sized sluggers to foreshadow his trip to Cooperstown, N.Y., home of the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame on Thursday, where he will discuss tourism and the administration’s efforts to ramp up foreign investment in the economy.

But Wallis suspected that there was another reason Obama stopped by β€” White House press secretary Jay Carney’s daughter, Della, 9, was playing in another game at the park at the same time with her team, the Royals.

In an interview, Carney said that it was pure coincidence that Obama turned up where his daughter was playing. He said the White House travel advance team had selected the field earlier in the week and he didn’t find out until staffers disclosed it in a planning meeting Monday morning. Carney said he didn’t even tell his wife, television journalist Claire Shipman, who was attending the game with their son, for fear of compromising the security around the secret presidential visit.

Uh-huh. Jay Carney wouldn’t lie to us, would he?

In case you missed it:

. . . the president, who had made the unscheduled stop on the way to a Democratic fundraiser . . .

That visit to Cooperstown? It was just a little pit stop on the way to a fundraiser in Chicago. A couple weeks ago Obama dropped by California to attend a bunch of fundraisers up and down the state. I’m sure he did something “official” while he was here so he could stick the taxpayers for the bill. The visit before that he gave a 20 minute speech over on the west side of the Central Valley on how global warming was causing our drought before flying down to Palm Springs to spend the weekend golfing at some fancy courses out in the desert that use massive amounts of water from the Colorado River to stay green.

I’m not sure what Obama will be doing this Memorial Day weekend but there is nothing listed on the White House schedule and since this is a holiday weekend and Washington DC is closed for business I seriously doubt he’ll be working. I’m gonna make a wild guess and say he’ll take MO and and the girls and the dogs and skedaddle off to some 1%er playground of the rich and shameless so he can get some much needed rest and relaxation from his grueling golf and fundraising schedule.

After the weekend is over there will only be a few days left until June. Obama will be busy as a beaver until the Fourth of July (which is on a Friday so it will be another 3-day weekend) and then he won’t have a minute of rest until his annual two-week vacation to Martha’s Vineyard. After Labor Day he’ll have his nose to the grindstone campaigning for the Democrats in Congress until November. I’m sure that somewhere in there he’ll make time to solve that VA non-scandal.

Okay, it’s been lovely but I’ve got to scream now.

    Why don’t the Obamas use the lovely Camp David more ? No hovering security or barricades and they are free to roam hundreds of acres of a little piece of heaven, which is already staffed and secure? The link is to a private blog documenting the history and Presidents that visit. Some say Michelle hates it because there’s no 5-star restaurant (I guess a private chef just doesn’t do it for her).

    This is a sweet little blog that has the best historical documentation and details of the amenities, it’s a 5-star resort in the MD mountains, only a short chopper ride away from the WH. Lots of guest cabins to invite their friends. What normal family wouldn’t love to spend weekends here? I guess that’s the keyword “normal”. I get the feeling spending time exclusively with his family is not a high priority on his list. There’s a full golf course nearby too. No excuses!


    That’s just the activities, enjoy the full tour by clicking on the other links on the bar.

    Cabin fever, my arse.

    • The Klown says:

      The White House is like a 5-star hotel. It even has its own bowling alley and movie theater. All Obama has to do is ask and he can get personal concerts from big music stars right there in the East Wing.

    • elliesmom says:

      The Obamas are urban born and reared. Camp David, as luxurious as it is, is probably too out in the woods for them. I’m actually being serious. We’ve spent a lot time in Acadia National Park. My husband doesn’t like to camp so while we hike around during the day, we spend our evenings at fancy Bar Harbor restaurants and stay in a beautiful inn. Over the years we’ve met lots of really nice people, but not many “city folk”. Likewise at the place we like in the eastern mountains of PA. Lots of New Yorkers, but not from the city. OTOH, Cape Cod gets lots of people from major cities. A beach vacation must be more appealing. There’s a study out there somewhere of the demographics of the people who use our National Parks. Overwhelmingly white and mostly suburban. Camp David might be out of the Obamas’ comfort zone.

      • DeniseVB says:

        To be fair to MO, my idea of “roughing it” is staying in a hotel without room service πŸ˜‰

        Yet MO, Miss Preachypants, tells us to move and be active and not fat. What better way to prove she’s not a hypocrite by enjoying all the amenities of Camp David. It’s definitely not “living over the store” or “living in a nice prison” as she so endearingly refers to the WH. Fresh air, long walks on the trails, a private pool, tennis court and returning to a not so shabby (4 Star quality?) Presidential “cabin”. Who wouldn’t love that? πŸ˜‰

        • elliesmom says:

          I’ve hiked a good piece of the Appalachian Trail with my scout troop. When I suggested to my husband that he and I finish it, he told me to send him postcards. When I figured out a nice inn with a hot bath and good dinner at the end of the day would get him out into the woods, I went for it. I have to say that over the years I have come to enjoy his “camping” very much.

          • DeniseVB says:

            I spent my elementary years on the Quantico Marine Base where Pres. Eisenhower had a getaway fishing cabin on the Potomac. When he wasn’t using it, he let the base scout troops “camp” out at it. I do remember how primitive it was, no indoor plumbing, but *nice* outhouses and an outdoor shower. Fun times, I thought the President was a pretty cool guy for sharing it with us.

            My, have times changed.

          • The Klown says:

            Most modern Potusi had permanent homes they would visit during vacations and breaks.

          • leslie says:

            This POTUS has a “permanent” house in Chicago. Well, permanent as long as he was running for a federal office. He won’t be back here (thanks be to God) when he’s done ruining the country. I hope Hawaii is happy with him.

        At Camp David they can’t hobnob with the mega-rich and celebrities.

  4. Erin says:

    I can understand how draining the whole “bubble” lifestyle could be to someone who is an introvert and values their alone time. That just doesn’t seem to describe our current president. The escape from the “bubble” moments seem to be planned and to document in photos how loved he is. It’s like he needs a hit of adulation to confirm his existence.

    • 1539days says:

      The bubble stories seem to coincide with the “Obama is responsible for another scandal” weeks.

    • DeniseVB says:

      It’s definitely raw meat for the LoFos. ” Look a photo of the President taking a walk, he’s just like me !” “Look a photo of the President playing baseball with kids, he must really love kids, just like me!” He’s nothing more than a neverending ad campaign and product placement πŸ™‚

  5. driguana says:

    The office of president since Bill Clinton, at least, has been nothing more than a publicity stunt. It has nothing to do with leadership, problem solving or governance. We can now refer to it truthfully as The Presidential Enquirer!

    Isla Vista Shootings – Alleged Killer’s Last Video and Threats:

      7 people dead, including the shooter.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I must be getting insensitive to serial killers, if it’s not more than 30, meh. I just wish the media would stop elevating the killers to anti-hero level with all the publicity. A lot of kids sit behind violent video games and fantasize about stuff like this, it’s what the “killers” have in common. Oh, and we remember their names, do we ever remember the names of their victims?

    • jeffhas says:

      If it weren’t real life – I’d have said that was some really bad acting.

      That the is a lot of melodrama. Special snowflake deserves the loves of the lovelies, or else.


      On the surface he seems like a good lookin kid… He should have no prob with girls at college..? Unless they got to know him a little and saw the mckreeper in plain sight.

      What a tragedy – what a sad state when a 22 yo virgin feels his only recourse is kill people…. But that Video will go viral – so he gets noticed now, so you can add noteriety to the list of motives for the N-gens (narcisissists).

    • 1539days says:

      I was half listening to the video, but this part struck me. (4:05)
      “You do deserve it, just for the crime of living a better life than me.”

      We talk about class warfare a lot, but it boils down to envy. When unions complain that it’s not fair for a McDonalds employee to make minimum wage, it’s not really because they don’t make enough to live on. It’s unfair to them because someone else in the company makes more than they do.

      It brings me back to Animal Farm. The progs who want to create socialism blame the owners for everything wrong with the working man’s world. Yet, Obama “deserves” to spend millions of dollars on vacations because of some nebulous work he’s doing to make everything more fair.

      This is the end of the road with envy. It is a lot easier to take the stuff from someone who has stuff than to have it for yourself. The unions would rather extract all the money and employment from a company than see it exist without them. It’s unfortunate when you don’t have something important to you. It’s evil when you try to take it from someone else.

      • DandyTIger says:

        He’s a 1%-er, like lots of progs we hear complaining about the 1%. And he says he did it because people that have more than him deserve to die. This is the inevitable result of the 1%, class warfare, propaganda progs have been pushing to divide and conquer, for short term political gain.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I wouldn’t be surprised if it comes out he had mental health issues. Something’s not right, kids of 1%ers usually o.d. shooting up themselves. Sad, but too often true.

      • Constance says:

        So this is a hate crime against young attractive accomplished women. The article reports dead persons but how many of them are women?

        • Jadzia says:

          No kidding. This reminds me somewhat of the Quebec killings about 20 years ago, but nobody is calling this a hate crime. Possibly because families may not yet have been notified, so if all of his victims are women (and apparently the little shit said on the YouTube video that he also hated all men who had better lives than him), that might not yet be public information.

    If you ever wonder why the liberal media doesn’t cover Obama’s fundraisers, it’s to avoid talking about stupid sh*t like this ….. blaming the Founding Fathers for setting up such a crappy system for him to “work” with.


    • The Klown says:

      He doesn’t need to raise money for reelection anymore, but that hasn’t slowed him down.

      • lyn says:

        Raising money is the only thing that makes Obama feel worthwhile, because he is a loser in all other things.

      • DeniseVB says:

  15. Constance says:

    Off topic warning….This was in my inbox this morning… Many American citizens with STEM degrees without work.


    So why are businesses pressuring Congress, who are supposed to represent the Citizens of the USA, to allow more non citizens with STEM degrees to work here? And why is Congress listening to business? Also why isn’t the news media reporting the lack of STEM jobs for qualified citizens and if the implication is our graduates aren’t prepared then what the hell is wrong with the American college education system?

    I knew this was the case because you can look around at the college kids in STEM fields and see that they aren’t finding jobs right away.

    • DandyTIger says:

      The future, the economic growth we’re seeing tends to be STEM based enterprises. But corporations would rather have cheap labor doing STEM. If they can get all their skilled labor cheap from India and China and their unskilled labor cheap from Mexico and Asia, of course that’s what they’ll do. And they’ll spend the money on politicians to make it happen.

      • 1539days says:

        That’s the reality. All the engineers in the US would be hired if the companies could pay them minimum wage or piecework for results. The larger the talent pool, the less companies can pay the talent.

      • Constance says:

        My daughter passed her Engineer in Training exam last year and spent 11 months as a $14 an hour part time “Intern” before she found a job. She finally took a job with a private engineering firm that hired three new engineers, all women, in one month. So sounds like some one was out of compliance with equal opportunity requirements and was having trouble getting work from local governments. If she wasn’t a woman she would probably still be looking for work. And seriously, uneducated fast food workers want to make more money than she (and all the other young American engineers) did?!

        • votermom says:

          So depressing.
          Kid 1 is thinking os studying engineering.

          • Constance says:

            All the other professions are probably just as bad, it just so happens I’m familiar with engineering job prospects. My daughter also said that the company had a bunch of male interns that didn’t really speak English so she wasn’t really sure where they were from because she couldn’t understand them and they also kept making comments about the boobs of their female co-workers causing women co-workers to avoid dealing with them. But I guess that is just an example of different cultural standards regarding women in the work place. I do hope they don’t expect American women to accept sexism from other cultures.

            A great nephew of mine graduated two years ago with a masters degree in chemical engineering from a university that is well respected for it chem. eng. program. He has yet to find employment in his field of study.

            The Obot generation that has amassed large student debt in hard science, engineering, computer science, etc, are in for a rude shock if the Senate amnesty bill becomes law. Rarely mentioned are the big changes in H-1b visa laws. Silicon valley tech. and especially IBM are putting large lobbying contributions (bribes) to get this to pass. IBM wants to take over the flow of high tech workers from Asia, esp. Southwest Asia to the US. It will be worth billions and will continue to put downward salary pressure on US grads.

          My summer reading is full of fluffy memoirs by celebrities like Tina Fey and Mindy Kaling. Well educated and talented in their field, but took years to catch a break. It’s the struggling years of crappy jobs to feed themselves that inspire me, especially the perseverance of following their passion no matter how the door slamming years sucked. Obviously, it worked out for both of them, their books are very funny, so I guess they can look back and laugh now πŸ™‚

    I love frederick maryland! I would move back there in a heartbeat. We lived in point of rocks right on the border of virginia, so we were up against the beginning of the catoctins and it was gorgeous and wild. But i bet camp david is even more beautiful and secluded. If i were president and loving the woods and mountains that is where i would vacation everytime. I wouldn’t waste my access to such a beautiful and protected wilderness. But obie is such city folk maybe that is why he doesn’t spend much time there. Plus he needs that constant adoration which you can’t get out in the middle of the wilderness and only by sneaking out or doing fundraisers or golfing all the time. We went camping out in western maryland where it gets really skinny between the three states’ borders. And each camp spot was one mile away from the next spot. I imagine that is the quietness you would get at camp david. The coyotes were freaking me out though and i couldn’t sleep well.

      It’s funny how some people want to vacation the opposite of what they are used to, while others merely want something different.

      BTW – Camping didn’t become a recreational activity until most people lived indoors. Most of human history is the tale of trying to get away from nature.
