Obama’s Buddy Thrown Behind Bars For Allegedly Soliciting Prostitute

April 8, 2011 by  

Obama's buddy thrown behind bars for allegedly soliciting prostituteOne of President Barack Obama's longtime friends from Hawaii has been arrested in a prostitution sting.

According to media reports, Robert Titcomb, 49, was taken into custody with three other men on April 4 for allegedly soliciting sex from an undercover police officer posing as a prostitute. He was released after posting $500 bail, and he is scheduled to appear at the Honolulu District Court on May 2.

This wasn't Titcomb's first run-in with the law. In 1987, he was arrested for a DUI offense, according to the Honolulu Star Bulletin.

Obama and Titcomb, who have been friends since high school, celebrated the holidays together this past winter. Obama not only golfed with Titcomb on four separate occasions in an 11-day span, but their families also spent Christmas Day together, CNN records indicate. On December 30, the Obamas visited the Titcomb residence to dine, play volleyball and relax on the beach.

In an interview with the Star Bulletin in 2004, when Obama was gearing up for Illinois Senate campaign, Titcomb had high praise for his old pal.

"He’s honest, he’s truthful and he’s always encouraged the better things in you," Titcomb told the media outlet. "And you always go back to those people who water your plant, who water your garden."

    • Robert Smith

      There goes samurai again…

      Just can’t seem to quit paying attention to the sex lives of consenting adults.

      There must be a name for that kind of perversion.


  • Charles

    Where is the Main Stream Media?

    • Dad

      You mean the now fringe media…

      Cashing the White House slush fund checks. You need to keep you eye on the ball… ha, ha, ha, ha.

      Seriously, I haven’t had a subscription to any of the fringe media, nor do I watch network TV. If you do, you are contributing to the problem.

      • Dan

        I think if you would look in Obama’s pockets you would find the lame stream media. It’s hard to find out what is going on in the world when you are buried deep inside a pocket.

        • bob wire

          yea! I bet “O” is bankrolling 3 networks!

          • Dan

            He sure is. They think by being absolutely loyal to him and not trying to destroy him or his policies that in the long run they will survive as a state run media. Why are they so hot to defend net neutrality?

      • http://?? Joe H.

        don’t forget, to know your enemy is to conquer them!!! I occaisonally watch the mainstream and do have a subscription to a local paper. That way, I am able to know my enemy!!

        • Vigilant

          You’re right. I’ve just received “Rules for Radicals” in the mail. Got to keep up on the opposition.

  • Gerd

    It doesn’t say if the undercover posing as a prostitute was a male or female.

  • Rob Jase

    What? Are you saying that Obama was born in Hawaii now?

    tsk, tsk, that will ruin your birther ststus.

    • Patty

      It doesn’t matter. His bio father was an english subject. He may have lived there. Probably wasn’t born there.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      Show me where anybody, including the author said that! We know he was IN Hawaii in his childhood, that doesn’t mean he was born there!!

  • RonaldL

    They said that Obama is homosexual. Larry Sinclair, the gay man who claimed to have had two sexual encounters with Obama in Chicago in 1999, wrote a book, “Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder,” in which he states that Obama was linked to Young’s murder.

    • karolyn

      Get a life!

      • http://?? Joe H.

        Just as soon as YOU take off the rose colored glasses!!

    • Kate8

      Ronald – I actually agree with you. There is a great deal of unsavory history Obama’s hiding. Not all history, either, as it’s reported that he enjoys frequenting gay bathhouses still.

      There are at least two murders, and the attempted murder of Sinclair, linked to Obama in order to cover up the fact that he had gay trysts with them.

      Do you suppose there is some of that in those sealed records? More probably, they show that his whole life, as reported in his books, are complete works of fiction. No one who was where he claimed to be remembers him.

      His records would expose him as a complete fraud. Some say a foreign (or even CIA) agent.

  • bob wire

    Well ~ I heard that Obama’s mail man was gay!

    This man has evil all around him!

    • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Cindy

      in response to “that man has evil all around him”…what is that other saying, “you can tell a person by the people you hang with.” “O” hangs with radical leftists, maoists, communists, radiacal muslims and now freinds in prostitute rings. And I have heard testimony from some dude who claims to have given “o” a B.J….now, I wouldn’t doubt anything about what I hear about this person who is radically changing this country into a socialist country. There will only be the “have’s and the “have nots”…we will be no better off then Germany was back in Hitler’s day. I say the dastardly thing right now….God Bless America and Israel!!!! God Bless us all who love freedom, our country and our God (which is the God of Israel).

  • Eddie47d

    Listen to all the Puritans casting all those stones. I’ve been married for 38 years and never stepped out on my wife. Yet I read an article last week that said up to 50% of all men and women now cheat on their spouses. The article didn’t say whether this Robert guy was married but if he wasn’t then it is none of your business. If he is then it may be a moral issue between him and his wife and God. It still has little to do with you. I don’t care for prostitutes,pole dancers or strippers but that is their life and society can only control so much.What goes on behind closed doors or in legal open bars should be left to personal discretion. Prostitution shouldn’t be on city streets but it is hardly worthy of national news.

    • Steve

      yeah that’s great Eddy but what if it was one of George Bush’s Republican friends while he was in office….front page news perhaps…

    • Patty

      Ya know what, who cares! Clinton is getting his knob polished under the oval office desk and it didn’t go anywhere. They all do it if they have the chance. It is all part of being a narcissist and they are all that. Who cares about this!
      I’m outta here. Time is right.

    • Jay

      You believe everything you read, Eddie?

      • Eddie47d

        Those polls on cheating spouses use to be about 25% women and 45% men. I was surprised by the increase in women and think it was too high.The Times They are a Changing.

  • jopa

    Robert Titcomb:With a name like that he was probably looking for a hairy chested babe.However I have had friends and acquaintances in the past that have done much worse.In reality the only story here is his name.

    • Annie

      Joppa………No, the only crime committed there was NOT just his name (titcomb)…..It just adds to the list of Ne’er-do-wells that obama hangs out with. obama would have NO idea how to have a life of quality and responsibility or a life of goodness and love. Obama is nothing but a criminal who hangs out with all other criminals and frauds.

      • karolyn

        You don’t know the man, so how can you judge. By the info you get from conservative websites? By this? I’ve known many people in my life and been friends with some who were not quite as moral as me; however, that had nothing to do with ME. But I guess you are as pure as the driven snow and have never had a friend that did anything wrong.

        • Jay

          Moral as you? oh ho!

            Hey sook…

            What gives YOU the right to judge the sex lives of consenting adults?

    • Steve

      With a name like that it’s no wonder why he thinks about sex all the time. If he would change his name It would probably help. BHO can probably help him with the whole name change thing.

  • American Taxpayer

    “He’s (BHO) honest, he’s truthful and he’s always encouraged the better things in you,” Titcomb told the media outlet. “And you always go back to those people who water your plant, who water your garden.”

    We can tell a lot about Titcomb’s character by his quote about Obama above. BUT I’m still wondering what plants are these people watering?

    • Robert Smith

      Awwww shucks payer. You say: ” BUT I’m still wondering what plants are these people watering?”

      You are wondering about houseplants?

      Why would anyone worry about plants? Ohhhhh, I get it! Like sook you are some kind’a christian who needs to be nosy.

      Funny! After all those proclomiations from those who want privacy. There you go snooping about plants.

      How’s that for intrusion? Christian snoopers.

      On target Time…this is a waste of space.

  • jopa

    Time: I must agree with you on this one but it may be because you and I may have been bad boys in the past and don’t see this as a crime.I have paid in the past in Amsterdam and don’t regret it one bit and it will be one of my fonder memories in life.All I can say is been there done that.No more confessions today!I was prompted to Google Republican sex scandals and there was so much I wasn’t aware of.George Bush accused of rape and the accuser supposedly committed suicide and when W was AWOL he molested some politicians (Red Blount)14 year old daughter.I don’t know if it is the same person but Bob Livingston was even listed.

    • karolyn

      Hae you ever hard the stories about LBJ and “Jumbo?”

    • libertytrain

      Jopa, I’ve seen you post here for a long time now and apparently you write but don’t always read posts. Bob Livingston has addressed this subject more than once since I’ve been reading these posts – He is not the former Congressman Bob Livingston that you felt the need to tie into your post.

    • Jay

      You should see what I found on Clinton, whoaah!

        Bob Livingston,
        you have to excuse jopa, as he’s kinda slow!! I believe you mentioned this fact a few months ago and I believe jopa was posting here at the time!! Maybe he will get it THIS time???? Best to you and yours!

    • independant thinker

      I always figured why pay for something I can get for free and with no time limit.

      President Clinton had many women to visit him in the White House and many different hotels while Arkansa Governor, so I guess that makes him just as bad or worse. Thank you.

    Well since Titcomb couldn’t get on Onumnutts bathhouse schedule, and Barry’s roping mare Michele was in vacation mode, because “working” women need a recoupe time, he went cruising downtown! Onumnutts close friends have all been radicals anti establishment types, who do everything weird and strange, why is there any surprise over this situation. When Onumnutts travels to muslim countries, where is Big Mamee, is it because Onumnutts is shucking and jiving with his sheik daddies. Or is he having a secret meeting with his master George Soros, the money man for the marxist/communist democrat party. Plus where was Onumnutts off to, when he had to hurry back to “hold” meetings for settling the budget issue. Since he acted like a whiney b–ch who couldn’t get his nails painted. Why didn’t the dumbocraps and Onumnutts waste 2 years with out a budget, was it that they hope for a complete economic failure?

    • patty

      Michelle will not go to the middle east with him because she will not wear a burke or hijab.

    Listen to me people, this running buddy describes the mentality Obama is carrying with him and he and all his so called buddies are nothing less then posers, right now we are being choked to death for food, jobs, and fuel and i know about the fuel first hand because i have a well in my own backyard that has the gates padlocked to keep from entering in or out, so what’s the purpose of that?, He doesn’t want anyone takeing it out, this guy does not care about anyone but himself and HIS religion, what ever that is ! it doesn’t matter what color you are, he does not care, but i’ll tell you thing for sure he and his cronies with the big bucks will have us acting just like those other countries, fighting each other!, he’s already made arrangments with the U.N. to step in with foriegn troops on our land if we should rebell against them!,..Everyone had better wake up and get rid of these problems before they get rid of us first! thank you

    karolyn, a typical soros socialist democrap book trained response. As usually any thing the democraps and Onumnutts does is just fine for you mental midgets. The whole bunch of you marxist/communist idoits have visions of a one world government and having the worthless UN being your advisors and rule makers. Your faggot phony leader in Cheif, is treating it citizens pretty niggardly with all of democrap blessings and lies as truth. Onumnutts War is going as most squabbles have when a marxist/communist is in control. Any f–k up that would do what the UN wants and Fracnce wants, is a moron. We know Onumnutts radical terrorists are praticing the French style of surrender and retreat sign, hand s in the air.
