President Obama in Hawaii; Too Far Away in a Crisis

Nigerian-Londoner Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab failed to kill 200+ passengers and President Obama failed by being too far away from the action in Hawaii.

Yes, he travels to Copenhagen and the Middle East. That is business. For a vacation, he needs to stay nearer to home.



  1. Hawaii is home; it is part of the United States, and there is no reason why a President should stay in the DC area for his vacations. Is he supposed to be calir-voyant and know that an idiot is going to try a terrorist attack? I guess a President should never leave the US East Coast area, unless is happens to be a business trip that takes him away…then it’s okay for him to be too far away to be in the thick of things. Use your head.

    • Of course JBG…no where but Hawaii, the farthest point away, would do I guess? No golf in Arizona, California, Florida. Home? Hasn’t been home for 25 years…and then not for long…whatever. Just a tactical consideration. Not saying he and family cannot venture out for respite from a dismal performance. Just remove 5+ hours in the air. But, he could have just as well been coming back from Copenhagen or Bonn etc. I get it.
