Obama’s Trip to Williamsburg: With a Government Shut Down Hours Away … Does Obama Have the Audacity to Take Another Vacation
Are you serious, another Obama vacation? Barack Obama with yet another example of more Presidental skin in the game …
Whether the government is on the verge of shutting down or not, what is up with this President going on yet another vacation? As reported at the Daily Press, President Obama and the First Family are planning to visit the Colonial Williamsburg. They are calling it a long planned family trip. And to make matters worse, on Thursday morning, the Federal Aviation Administration established a no-fly zone over Williamsburg that will be in place from Friday through Monday.
So the question remains, will Barack Obama have the audacity to take this vacation if the government shuts down? Also, the question needs to be asked why Obama and Michelle think its ok to continuously take vacations when most of America cannot afford to. Did Obama run for President so that he could receive the perks of the job? It is certainly looking that way. One would think that a President would have a bit more empathy for the plight of Americans and not continue to take a vacation or going golf at every opportunity. Not only have people questioned whether Obama has the ability to lead and is late to the show when dealing with important issues like Libya and the budget crisis resulting in a possible government shut down … Obama gives the perception that he is not engaged with the disastrous situation in America.
Just the other day Obama stated that he “remembered what it was like to pump gas”. Maybe Obama would also like to show “We the People” that he remembers what it is like to do without. As the Lonely Conservative opines, “while so many Americans suffer through this rotten economy and endure the inflation caused by his policies, we can still live vicariously through the Obama family. Lucky us”. No wonder Obama wanted an answer on the budget battle this morning and the pending government shut down because he has a vacation planned for this weekend.
UPDATE I: Doug Ross has Obama’s calendar and asks the question … Is this the calendar of a President concerned with a budget, a government shutdown, the troops, unemployment or rising gas prices. The answer would be no.
2012 cannot come soon enough.
