Obama Tells America OK to Vacation in Gulf After 27 Hour Stay … Off to Martha’s Vineyard for 10 Day Vacation Next Week
As summer draws to an end, Obama finally goes to Gulf Coast and says beeches are ok to visit. Just like pretty much every thing with Obama, he is a day late and a dollar short. Gulf Coast beeches for thee, not for me … I am going to Martha’s Vineyard. Talk about your after though vacation strictly more political purposes.
Gulf Coast for thee, not for me … Off to Martha’s Vineyard
The “Photo-op” in Chief Barack Hussein Obama traveled to the Gulf Coast for 27 hours and stated that Florida beaches were safe to go to, then bolted the area. Obama was pretty much forced to go to Florida and claim “mission accomplished” due to the fact that he and the First Family have taken numerous vacations this summer and none to the oil spill ravished Gulf Coast. However, this was more of a photo-op than any vacation.
President Barack Obama declared Gulf Coast beaches clean, safe and open for business Saturday as he brought his family to the Florida Panhandle and promised residents that the government wouldn’t forget them once efforts to stop the leak are finished.
On a warm and muggy day, Obama pledged to “keep up our efforts until the environment is cleaned, polluters are held accountable, businesses and communities are made whole, and the people of the Gulf Coast are back on their feet.”
Obama is in the region for a brief weekend trip with first lady Michelle Obama, daughter Sasha (her sister Malia is at summer camp) and the family dog, Bo. Their 27-hour stop in the Sunshine State is as much a family vacation as it is an attempt by the president to convince Americans that this region, so dependent on tourism revenue, is safe for travel – and that its surf is clean.
To reinforce that message, Obama and Sasha swam in the Gulf’s waters on Saturday, according to White House spokesman Bill Burton. The highly anticipated dip was away from the media’s view.
Obama said his family planned to “enjoy the beach and the water – to let our fellow Americans know that they should come on down here.”
However, for the Obama’s it is what might be for thee, is not for me. The First Family had already made plans to summer vacation in Maine and Martha’s Vineyard. Once again we are witness to the Obama, do as I say, not as I do mentality of so-called leadership. Obama’s visit to Panama City, FL was planned for just 27 hours, on Monday Obama will set off for a three day cross-country fund raising trip and then will head off for his real vacation, 10 days on Martha’s Vineyard. Because heaven forbid he actually vacation in the Gulf Coast and put his money and reputation where his mere words are.
