Obama continues to live large
We’ve got some president. America, stand up and give him a cheer. Clinton may have felt our pain, this guy wants us to know how great his life is on the taxpayers dole. No shame, just straight up in our face – “y’all suffer while I live large at your expense.”
Thousands of unemployed spent the night lined up, dressed in their best business attire, in sweltering heat and humidity, waiting for a job fair to open. Unemployment numbers are up, the stock market is crashing through the floor, the misery index is surging toward infinity, polls show people have little if any faith in this administration, but Obama’s not worried – no sir.
His three day luxury bus tour was so exhausting, coming as it did on the heels of his mini-vacation at the presidential retreat Camp David – that he is now forced to take a luxury vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.
So with plans to play golf today, he and the Mrs. “I finally found a reason to be proud of America” flew his and her presidential jets to the Vineyard arriving just hours apart – at an additional cost of tens of thousands if not more to taxpayers for her trip, personal staff, and personal motorcade. But who’s sweating the small stuff?
He arrived at the $50,000 per-week vacation home in Air Force One with two helicopter convoys, a motorcade of 10 plus vehicles, an army of staff to attend to their every need including the kitchen and house keeping staff, secret service, and members of his administrative staff.
Giving credit where credit is due, he did take time out for the pretend to be working obligatory photo-op with his national security person (probably to find out what those terrorist white guys Napolitano warned about, are up to). Then it was off to a bookstore were he bought his children $32 in books, telling the salesclerk he only uses the credit card maybe (gasp) three times a year.
But not to worry, he’ll be back in a couple weeks, when he promises to give a major policy speech outlining how he is going to solve the jobs/unemployment crisis. I kinda’ think he should have attended to the unemployment situation long before now – but hey, how long does it take to say raise taxes, increase spending, and we must share in the sacrifice?
