The first couple plans to visit Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania from June 26 to July 3, press secretary Jay Carney said in a statement.

The first bill cutting all funding for and selling Air Force One is planned for June 27th.

I heard that they are actually having Africa lifted from the ocean and rotated so that they technically don't have to travel at all.  The cost to the American taxpayer will no doubt be immense

Well, they to cut funding and sell it so the next old rich white Republican president can afford to have HIS gold plated. Maybe the boys in the Dominican Republic dig that sort of thing.

They're also researching whether they can impeach him in absentia.

But don't you dare call them racists. Those are isolated incidents, each and every one of them!

Submitter's headline is inaccurate; the article does not state that President Obama plans to resign.
 
2013-05-21 09:51:52 AM
The cost, according to Fox News, is eleventy-trillion-kabillionzillion dollars per minute.
 
2013-05-21 09:54:59 AM
He's going to go back to living under a slave plantation?! Where he would be getting free food and shelter, I have been told. (Run by that cheerful man and the people who cheered him, at the Republican conference panel on "So you're tired of being called racist"!)
 
2013-05-21 09:58:06 AM
I'm already shuddering at the thought of the conservative "jokes" that will come from this.

$300 million? What kind of rampant corruption would make this cost $500 million a day?

Still lacks wit. If you can't do better than the headline just don't post.
 
2013-05-21 10:08:56 AM
the ONLY positive to anything like this is that MAYBE, just maybe, it will keep all my right-wing facebook friends from posting pictures of presidents with umbrellas!

Oh, Subby, loved the headline.

Obama plans to "reinforce the importance that the United States places on our deep and growing ties with countries in sub-Saharan Africa, including through expanding economic growth, investment, and trade; strengthening democratic institutions; and investing in the next generation of African leaders," Carney said.

Nice for the taxpayers as brush clearing at the home office in Texas is probably a hell of a lot cheaper than brush touring in Africa.

I'm sure you expressed the appropriate amount of outrage over the trips of all presidents while calling them A-holes.

why does the president need to travel at all? he has internet, telephone, direct tv, in-house chef, and all the five guys burgers he could ever possibly eat...he shouldn't have to travel more than 5 miles radius of the white house

toto sings of the rains in africa
without a marine to hold his umbrella during his remaining years, he would drown in africa
some of you would say "good", to which i reply "so you wish death upon our president...answer the door, that's the secret service ringing the bell"

um, what?
Should I post the myriad rants of the liberal hatefest of the previous president by Garafalo, Moore, West, Mahr, etc.
Here, this took about 3 seconds to google:
A. "Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to put him against a wall and shoot him."

B. "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun." & "We're going to punish our enemies and we're gonna reward our friends..."

C. "A message to progressives: By all means, hang Senator Joe Lieberman in effigy."

D. "Michele, slit your wrist. Go ahead... or, do us all a better thing [sic]... start at the collarbone."

E. Barack Obama is a "light-skinned" African-American "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."

F. "All Hymie wants to talk about is Israel; every time you go to Hymietown, that's all they want to talk about."

G.  "You think the Republican National Committee could get this many people of color in a single room? Only if they had the hotel staff in here."

H. "How much time do we have left to talk about how stupid Sarah Palin is?"

I. Bill Maher: "You could have went to New Hampshire and killed two birds with one stone." (Senator): "Or, I could have gone to 1600 Pennsylvania and killed the real bird with one stone."
Answers: (A) Former Democratic Rep. Paul Kanjorski; (B) Barack Obama in 2008 and 2010; (C) New York Times columnist Paul Krugman; (D) Talk show host Montel Williams, directed at Rep. Michele Bachmann; (E) Senator Harry Reid, 2008; (F) Reverend Jesse Jackson, 1984; (G) DNC Chairman Howard Dean; (H) The Washington Post's Richard Cohen on CNN; (I) Senator John Kerry on HBO's "Real Time."
