More Lack of Presidential Sacrifice: Barack Obama Takes 20 Man, 10 Car Motorcade to visit childhood friend in Hawaii



President Barack Obama once again shows Americans what it means to sacrifice, NOT!  How is any one supposed to follow this president when he does not sacrifice himself? If one cannot lead by example, they cannot lead.

I wonder what the little people are doing

Once again Barack Obama shows a lack of leadership and failure to set an example for the American people. The do as I say, not as I do president thought it perfectly ok to spend “The People’s money” and have a 10 vehicle, 20 man motorcade, across highways cleared of traffic to reach his childhood friend Bobby Titcomb’sbeachfront house. What? Who does this? How does a president in the midst of a terrible economy who tells others to sacrifice continue to fail to set an example and just tell the people to “eat cake”.  Then again, who spends $1.4 million on a vacation in a recession? Obama learned so much from last year. Face it America, he just does not care.

Obama tells Stephanopoulos everyone must sacrifice … “everyone is going to have to sacrifice and have skin in the game” 


Far be it from this president to sacrifice and think about not spending the tax payers money and just have invited his friend to where Obama was staying. Because that would just make too much sense. If that occurred Obama could not inconvenience every one with his motorcade and waste tax payers dollars, After all, he’s not spending his money.

President Obama provoked fresh outrage today after taking a 20-man motorcade to visit a childhood friend during his lavish Christmas holiday in Hawaii.

The 10-vehicle convoy drove the president and wife Michelle from his rental property in Kailua, across highways cleared of traffic and through a military community to reach Bobby Titcomb’s beachfront house.

Mr Obama, who spent eight years at Punahou School in Hawaii before graduating in 1979, has splashed out $1.5m on his trip – a decision that will not endear him to the millions of Americans facing economic hardship in the New Year.

The extra cost of the excessive security levels demanded by the holidaying Mr Obama will further enrage opponents of the 49-year-old, who will return to work on January 3.

We the People are sick of this President and his elitist attitude. Obama refuses to sacrifice, yet tell other that they must. What a liberal hypocrite. Mr. President, we are all just so proud that our hard work and tax paying dollars can be spent for you to waste it so that none of your life and vacation can be inconvenienced.

      Guess Obama felt it was going to take a whole, lot more than just himself to impress his childhood friend.

      The ‘President’ spends money like a drunken politician, but
      is truly ‘CHEAP’ in so very many ways!
