Obama Family Considers Calling D.C. Home After Presidency

They'd be the first presidential family in nearly 100 years to stick around

The first family has little more than three years left in the White House, but the Obamas are already thinking about where they’ll live next.

In an interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters, scheduled to air on Friday, the President said the decision will revolve around his youngest daughter, Sasha, who will be a sophomore in high school when he leaves his second term in office. “Sasha will have a big say in where we are,” Obama said, adding that he wants to make sure she is “doing well” in high school.

The Obama’s oldest daughter, Malia, will be in college by then.

Both daughters currently attend the prestigious Sidwell Friends School in northwest D.C., where Chelsea Clinton also went. The family lived on the south side of Chicago before Obama’s 2008 election to the presidency.

If the family decides to stay in the District, President Obama would be the first president to do so since Woodrow Wilson.

I can see it now. Throw this idea out and see what response there is. Go away is the response. When your time is up you get off the stage, nobody cares what you think. Heck...nobody cares now!

I would have thought that Paris would be more in tune with Obama and his family. But even French Socialists are not duped by Obama's cave to the Iranian Mullahs.

Who would dare live in Chicago even with a phalanx of Secret Service agents guarding the body?

Given the fact that he will be too young to retire, should a Hilary Presidency come to be a reality, Mr. Obama would make a great Sec. of State for the USA.

Where else would you expect an emporer to live?

Most American girls are fat, slutty feminists who dress like slobs. Men should boycott them to start putting them in their place and to encourage them to improve.

Here are some ways to insult American girls:

1. If she is fat, say:

“Are you pregnant?”

OR

“Are you sure you should be eating that?”

OR

"Have you looked in the mirror recently?"

2. When you are near a fat chick, use your mobile phone by pretending that you are talking to a friend and complain loudly about how disgusting fatties are.

3. If she has a tattoo, make a disgusted face, and say:

“Is that a bug or dirt on your skin?”

OR

“I thought tattoos were only for bikers, criminals, or whores.”

OR

“Girls who get tattoos because everyone else has one are like lemmings. Would you jump off a bridge because everybody else did?”

OR

“I hear that there are laser tattoo removal clinics. You should go to one.”

OR

“I thought you looked pretty hot until I saw that tattoo.”

OR

"That tattoo will look really good when you are 70."

4. If she smokes, say:

“Gross! Smoking is such a turn-off. Lung cancer is not sexy.”

5. If she wears flip-flops, say:

“Wow, girls in other countries like Russia and Brazil care about their appearance and dress like women.”

6. If she has short hair, say:

“Excuse me, are you a man?”

President Obama will probably stay so that he can help to decide where to build the moument to him on tha Capitol Mall. He'll go down as one of our greatest presidents ever. Next to the Lincoln Memorial seems appropriate. President Obama has been the one to protect the American people from the traitors in the Tea Party.

I think it is more than likely that Michelle Obama will run for President in 2016.  No one wants to talk about this possibility but most of us who follow politics believe her running is a foregone conclusion.  If Barack Obama survives his Presidency he probably would like to continue to live in the White House.  Michelle Obama can count on the support of many of the same groups who supported her husband. By 2016 Hillary may decide that she doesn't want the job. Barack as "first gentleman" or Bill Clinton as "first gentleman".

Ah, the "problem" concerning kids when it looks like you are leaving a job and you have to consider what you will do next.  If I were the President, I would stay until Sasha graduates high school, then take the first flight out of D.C. By then, he would have regained some of  his popularity (almost all ex-politicians are popular, even Nixon got some appreciation) and I would move back to Chi town.

@JohnNagel I think you can sue in Federal court no matter where you are at.

Your link is to a website promoting your book, which is a liar's diatribe, in another attempt to further milk the rubes who would buy it.

Disingenuous hack.
