A White House official said the president and his family were fine and not involved, but Mr. Obama’s party of friends decided to speed back to the compound of three houses where they have been staying after hearing that the son of his friend, Eric Whitaker, had been injured. The dramatic departure from the golf course triggered concerns about whether the president had been injured, particularly after an ambulance with flashing lights sped to the house.

  1. you have to realize that Mr. Obama’s friends are very dear to him and he will do anything for them. Lest we forget the incident in Cambridge Masachusettes.

  2. Look here!

    Some kid gets hurt (is it being treated with ObamaCare??) and the Prez goes running. A plane is almost blown out of the air and no one has heard anything from him in days. All this from someone who hasnt met a mic or camera he dislikes (unless it says “fox” on it).

    Oylam goylam!

  3. Oh! And I thought terrorists attacked the president’s compound. Oh well! The story certainly kept us on our toes for at least 5 minutes.

  4. #5. Had it been a terrorist plane on its way to Eretz Yisroel to do who knows what, and the IDF would have shot it down, Barry would have been all over the media, minus Fox, ranting and raving.

  5. ow wow a kid needs stiches and the obama goes running of the golf ccourse but a guy tries to bomb a plane out of the air and nothing ?!?!?!?

  6. if you only read YWN for your news, it is possible that you could come away with the impression that the President has said nothing about the bomber. So maybe expand your repetoire of news websites a bit, that might help your problem.

  7. oh but obamanation brilliant spokesman gibbs critize Israeli for blowing away terroist that is very important but try blowing a plane out of the sky he needs to play golf.He needs to get a cabinet meeting immediately together and plan a stragethy to get after this terroist. Why wasn’t Lieberman summon to Hawaii or is it because he is a dispecable person according to obamanation’s pastor wright
