How Obama Vacationed: About 17.5 Hours Of Golfing, 4 Hours On Family Outings


obama-golf-golfAt 12:54 a.m., on December 22, President Barack Obama and his family arrived at Kailua, a Hawaiian town on the island of Oahu. Almost five days later, Obama, leaving his wife and kids behind, departed the island to return to Washington, D.C. Obama’s vacation lasted a brief 118 hours, according to pool reports.

So what did Obama do during his vacation?

Mainly, he golfed. Obama spent about 17 and a half hours golfing this vacation.

On December 26, Obama left his vacation home at 9:27 to spend about 6 hours on the links, with buddies Bobby Titcomb, Mike Ramos, and Greg Orme. They golfed at the Klipper Golf Course on Marine Corps Base Hawaii.

On December 24, Obama departed his vacation home at 9:33 a.m., according to the pool report. He remained on the golf course until 3:15, p.m., spending about 5 and a half hours on the golf course. He again golfed that day with Bobby Titcomb, Mike Ramos, and Greg Orme.

And on December 22, the first full day of his vacation, Obama left his vacation home at 11:34 a.m. to go golfing. He finished up on the links at 5:35, spending nearly 6 hours with Sam Kass (his personal White House cook), staffer Marvin Nicholson, and buddies Bobby Titcomb and Mike Ramos.

Titcomb was at each golf outing this vacation.

As for time with this kids, Obama had only two outings for about two hours apiece with his entire family.

After golfing on December 26, Obama met up with his family on beach, which was located on the Marine Corps Base Hawaii, near the golf course. He arrived at the beach, according to when the pool reporter’s email was sent out, at 2:32 p.m. local time. At 4:22, the pool reporter said the president had left the beach.

In addition to his brief time at the beach, the other outing with his family was a brief two-hour hike with Michelle Obama and their daughters. At 1:49 p.m., on December 23, Obama arrived at the Maunawili Demonstration Trail. At 3:58, Obama was done hiking, and headed back to his vacation home.

Obama also worked out (as he did for about more than an hour on Dec. 24, an hour and a half on the morning of Dec. 25th, for an hour on the 26th).

The president, along with the first lady, also went to a memorial service for Senator Daniel Inouye. And the first couple went out for dinner together the first night of their vacation. The pool report signals that “family” and “friends” were present, but fails to name names.

  1. Article failed to mention how many times the President went to the bathroom. Posting this article is at best boorish, nobody’s business, bitul Torah for the men who waste time reading this, & a huge Chilul Hashem. WHO CARES?! “11:34 am to go golfing”…down to the minute…
    & no I did not vote for him; give him the respect due The President of the most powerful country in the world..Give it up!!

  2. I also did not vote for Obama but this is a tremendous chilel Hashem and makes your “news” reporting seem nothing short of a tabloid. Reporting only for the sake of snitching on celebrities is infantile and even more so the President. How he spent each minute of his vacation is not info that needs to be shared with the Torah community, especially when the intent is to disgrace. And the extreme anti-Obama bent makes your whole site skewed and hard to take with anything less than a pillar of salt.

  3. Oh, give it up. I didn’t vote for Obama either, but he’s going to be president for two terms, which is the maximum. Like it or not, he’s changed American history, and not just because he’s sort of black (as if that weren’t enough). Articles like this one come across as petty.

  4. This is a disgraceful article. It is low, biased and epitomizes the worst of politics. And no, I did not vote for President Obama either term. I can be a republican with out needing to demonize anybody with a different view. I suggest you try it too. It makes for a much more definitive and respectable opinion.

  5. Yea skdoula……….. posting about a president flying 20 hours round trip at 300 thousand an hour in the air to go play golf on a supposed family vacation with a friend caught in a prostitution sting who’s also a known drug dealer on the island there. More like news to people who actually give a shiiite sic

    Not to mention he’s now flying back solo which means we now have to pay double for their travel expenses. This couple has done this 4 times, flown half way around the world in separate planes.

  6. Sounds similar to the Clinton family. Barry & Mischelle hate each other & only smile for the cameras/media. They are only staying together for political purposes.
