The Hypocrite in Chief: More Michelle Obama Sacrifice … Shows Up to Martha’s Vineyard with First Kids on Separate Plane at Tax Payer’s Expense
KING and QUEEN OBAMA … The hypocrite in Chief and his wife rack up more debt for the American tax payers.
As millions of Americans are out of work, thousands of desperate individuals line up for a job fair, more Americans file for first time unemployment claims, and the national debt is out of control, but … the completely out of touch President and first lady, Barack and Michelle Obama, show up to Martha’sVineyard on separate planes at an additional cost to American tax payers.
Michelle Obama and President Obama traveled to Martha’s Vineyard just hours apart, costing taxpayers thousands in additional expenses so she could have just a bit of extra vacation time.
Mrs. Obama and her daughters arrived just before 2 pm Thursday on a U.S. government jet, according to the Martha’s Vineyard Times, which got its information from the local airport. The first lady’s office has been silent on her travel. President Obama arrived in the evening along with the family dog Bo.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE? America is suffering, Obama talks about sacrifice and yet he and Michelle sacrifice nothing? Why would Michelle Obama and kids need top take a separate flight? Michelle Obama’s solo trip included a flight on a specially designed military aircraft she took instead of Air Force One, any extra staff and Secret Service that had to be enlisted to go with her. She also would also have had her own motorcade from the airport to her vacation residence further inconveniencing others on the Vineyard. Imagine America, Michelle’s sacrifice would have been having to slum it on Air Force One. As Weasel Zippers states, “must be nice”.
Let’s face it, they just don’t care. That can be the only explanation as to why the Obama’s continue to thumb their nose at the American people as so many struggle to make ends meet let alone afford to go on a vacation. What a message this sends to Americans. Is it any wonder that Obama’s job approval ratings are so low? His job approval for the handling of the economy is all but nonexistent.
Time-line of Obama’s vacation to Martha’s Vineyard.
What is most comical and beyond all comprehension of hypocrisy is the “do as I say, not as we do” mentality of the Obama’s. Seriously, even the LEFT must scratch their heads and say under their breath in the closet to themselves … “we voted for this clown?” In one photo-op Obama plays class warfare and tells the Democrat minions that he will tax the rich as they do not pay their fair share of taxes, yet look where he is this week, surrounded by millionaires and billionaires. Any one see anything wrong with this? Hmm? Then Barack Obama, his Democrat mouth pieces and the in the tank MSM talk about the lack of diversity in the Tea Party. Yet, take a good look see where Obama and his clan vacation … Martha’s Vineyard. What do you think the diversity is on Martha’s Vineyard? Note to anyone who has never been there … THERE IS NO DIVERSITY. Even the hired help is lily white. Speaks volumes, doesn’t it?
So many people have made excuses for Barack Obama since he has been president; however, he has been in office long enough and has been witness to the poor economy and hard times people are facing. Many, including Sarah Palin, have stated that Obama is tone deaf. Sorry, the Obamamessiah can hear just fine, HE JUST DOES NOT CARE! I agree 100% with the Lonely Conservative, Obama vilifies others who have worked hard to get ahead and attacks them for being capitalist, yet he an his ilk, the political elite ruling class feel that this is their birth right to live a life of privileged. Don’t you know who they are!
What a disgrace of a President. People are suffering, King Obama flies off to Martha’s Vineyard and tells the American voters to wait while he lives “la vita loca” and tells them to eat cake until September when he tells them he will give another jobs speech. We can’t wait Barack. Why don’t you do America and the world a favor and just stay on vacation until 2013.
There is something seriously wrong with this President and a character flaw of a lack of empathy that makes it impossible for him to be President. The fact that he cannot see what he is doing is perceived as wrong should make all take pause. VOTE OBAMA OUT IN 2012 and provide America with real Hope and Change.
UPDATE I: Sister Toldja has a great contrast of King Obama on vacation hobnobbing with the rich and famous in Martha’s Vineyard and thousands of desperate folks in Atlanta just looking for a job. The first black president, eh? When will blacks realize that Obama ain’t one of them and all he has to offer is more welfare, unemployment benefits and food stamps.

Obama vacation count to date: 70
GW Bush vacation count for same timeframe: 225
Yeah, Obama is bankrupting the country by vacation.
SM: Do you have any formal education or are you just ignorant from all the Kool-Aid? Seriously, it is not the $’s that Obama spends on a vacation that hurts the economy, it is the American spirit he is breaking. of course, that is his intention.
You do realize that the economy is not the same in the first term of W compared to O, right? You also realize you boy campaigned on “Hope & Change” yet you are comparing him to a previous president. So Obama’s H&C is all BS, he is just like the rest, according to your own words.
Newsflash … you don;t think that Obama would have been embraced by John Q. Public if he set an example and said, to be in solidarity with those Americans struggling and cannot take a vacation, neither will I. When my children ask me why we cant, I will tell them that millions of families not only can’t take vacation, they don’t have jobs or homes.
That type of message and imagery would have gone miles. Instead, Obama showed he just does not give a $h*t about Americans. He is an elitist. I sometimes wonder how black folks even support this man, because other than skin color, they have nothing in common with him.
One has to laugh that he thinks his speech on jobs is so crucial and important that he is going on vacation first. Good grief. Obama just does not care.
Good to see the President stayed a bit longer to get some work in at the expense of his vacation.
Martha’s is a good choice nice and quiet, great to charge the batteries in order to freshly challenge the many (inherited) problem the country is facing.
Sm: Inherited? How many of the problem are what he has caused?
I wonder what the libs are going to say when the GOP presidential winner says they inherited the car driven off the cliff by Obama?
What’s all the fuss on Obama’s vacation, remember W.?
George W. Bush loved to escape to his ranch in Crawford, Texas, for a break — he spent one sixth of his presidency there. Mr Bush took more time off from the White House than any other US president, spending 1,020 days out of the office, including 490 days at his ranch.
SM: One, you are clueless if you do not see a difference between vacationing at your home as opposed to vacationing with millionaires and billionaires. While he asks others to sacrifice, Obama does 180 degrees the opposite.
Two, in this present economy, if GWB was doing the same thing, I would be writing the same post.
Three, you libs want it both ways. You say Obama is different, but at every time you make the comparison to GWB. Wouldn’t that make Obama more of the same and in no way “Hope & Change”? Hmm?
Four, when you tell others to sacrifice, you best be prepared to do the same.
Five, GWB used to golf until he decided that with soldiers at war it was not the right thing to do anymore. Where is that Obama moment?
Six, Obama rants about diversity and how evil millionaire and billionaires are; however, where does he go for vacation … to Martha’s Vineyard, lifestyles of the Lily White rich and Famous. Check out the pics of O on vacation, its like a a”Where’s Waldo” trying to find another person that is a minority.
Finally, this is about Obama, not W. When will you lame Libs ever get that thru your heads. Why don’t you just blame the Johnson Administration while you are at it. Although, with all the damage that Obama has done to America … imagine what the next GOP president is going to inherit? I wonder if Obama will whine like a little child when he is blamed for the economy after he is tossed out of office on his ears. Have not heard a peep from W, have you? I guarantee Obama will not go as gentle into that good night. He is too much of a narcissist to do that.
2012, please get here soon.
Where is Bo? His usefulness as photo-op over?
SM: If I remember right, I think Bo showed up with Barack on Air Force One.
Barky signed executive order to bypass Congress and current immigration laws, this will halt the deportation of 300,000 illegals. It will add millions more that are looking for work and take jobs away from legal citizens.
Fast and Furious makes Watergate look like an illegal lemonade stand. Premise being that if Holder and Obama can prove that American guns are crossing the border, they can start working on negating our 2nd Amendment rights. So they let over 2,000 guns go across the border and hundred of Mexicans are being slaughtered, possibly 2 border control agents, and these guns have being used in 500 crimes in the US.
Taking separate planes, which will cost tens of thousand additional taxpayer money, is just all part of the elitist psychopathy.
