FINALLY: First Dog Bo Takes a Well Deserved Vacation … Working Class Dog with Campaign and Caviar Tastes


Rest well America, now that you know that Bo, the first Dog, has arrived safe aboard his own MV-22 Osprey flight to Martha’s Vineyard. That is correct, Bo is taking a vacation that most Americans can only dream of. He is ready to frolic on the sandy, non-diverse beaches of Martha’s Vineyard. Play golf and ride his bike, although I am not sure how he folds the putter with paws.  This is the visual image that is presented from this elitist president and the first family. But that’s OK, because he is BO and you are not. Who finds it offensive that the First Family has no budget, no skin in the game, does not sacrifice, but yet these are the things that are asked of us by Barack Obama? Obviously presidents take vacations, but this one sticks it in America’s face as so many of “We the People” struggle to gain full time employment and a record number of Americans are on food stamps. But it is all fine for Barack Obama, the first family and BO to take such a lavish vacation because it is on the tax payers dime.

This president Bo has some gall to actually portray himself as for the working American people when all he does is live “life styles of the rich and famous”. The American Thinker has it 100% correct, “My problem is a ‘tone deaf’ administration who does not understand that moving BO around at taxpayers’ expense is a bit too much when we are blaming the “sequester” for government services. How can this president keep a straight face and talk about sequestration and government cuts in spending and then take a vacation like this to The Vineyard?


Some fantastic sarcasm from The People’s Blog. However, sadly, like all great sarcasm, so much of it is based upon the truth.

Americans can go to bed with a story to warm the cockles of their hearts tonight. First Dog Bo has been successfully transported to join the First Family on their well-deserved vacation on Martha’s Vineyard.

Bo was transported from Washington to the island on board a specially modified Marine Corps MV-22 Osprey. For security reasons similar to those of Vice President Joe Biden, President Obama and First Dog Bo cannot travel on the same aircraft, thus making a separate flight necessary.

While some might consider using a $69.3 million aircraft to transport a dog a bit extravagant, it must be pointed out that this was paid for with taxpayer money, not from the First Family’s accounts. Neither President nor Mrs. Obama are spendthrifts and are very careful with the family’s budget.

It is important that Bo accompany the First Family on this vacation, which the President surely deserves after all the hard work he has put in over the past few days. The president recently returned from a tortuous tour of speech-making, some of which were delivered in benighted flyover places like Tennessee.

How would would the MSM act if a Republican president was going on such lavish and posh vacations at such extravagant expenses as the people suffered? I think you all know the answer.

More Sacrifice from Obama & the First Family … Obama Vineyard Vacation at $7.6 Million Private Resort …More than 75 Rooms Booked for Staff

Barack Obama, the phony working class President …

America, it’s time to admit you have a phony for the middle class president and come to the realization that Barack Obama is a 1%er. As most Americans stay home for their vacation, worry whether they can pay the bills, keep their home, their job and their insurance … Obama leads by example and shows his shared sacrifice by heading off to Marha’s Vineyard once again for vacation at a $7.6 million private resort. Nothing says for the middle and working class like life styles of the rich and famous of Martha’s Vineyard. I guess he will be focused like a laser on the economy and jobs for Americans while he is vacationing on the Vineyard at tax payers expense.  When is America ever going to wake up and realize that this president could care less? As record number of Americans are on food stamps, the unemployment rate continues to be about 7%, more part time jobs than full time ones are created and this elitist, phony president jets off for vacation.

Democrat Mayors were complain in 2011 about Obama’s vacations in Martha’s Vineyard and he has never stopped … as previously stated, Obama could care less, let then eat snow cones.

The Massachusetts island of Martha’s Vineyard, the exclusive playground for presidents and their families, is about to get its annual summer infusion of cash and attention as President Obama and his family prepare to arrive August 10 for an eight-day vacation.

Local reports indicate that the first family will likely be staying at a $7.6 million resort home on southern edge of the island in the town of Chilmark where homes feature water access to Chilmark Pond, tennis courts and swimming pools.

Staying at the home of Chicago corporate finance manager David Schulte is a break from past Obama vacations because the $21 million home they’ve rented, Blue Heron Farm, isn’t available. Schulte’s summer home sits on nine and a half acres, has ocean views and a basketball court.

While the president typically keeps to himself and carries with him only a handful of staffers to Martha’s Vineyard, security will be tight. As in the past, the Wesley Hotel in Oak Bluffs will house security and communications officials. The owner told the Vineyard Gazette that the Secret Service has booked 70 rooms and another five have been reserved for the Transportation Security Agency. Rates at the hotel run from $225-$345.

As the Gateway Pundit opines regarding Obama, “skin in the game for thee, not for me and Michelle”. It must be nice taking a vacation on someone else’s dime.

More Shared Sacrifice and ‘skin in the game’ from your ‘Vacationer’ in Chief

SACRIFICE: Obama & First Family Trip to Africa Will Cost U.S. Taxpayers Between $60 and $100 Million

Title this one, Sequester, what sequester? Or, It’s Good to be King. Or, You Can Go Home Again  ;-)

As reported at the Washington Post, President Barack Obama and his families trip to Africa will be one of the most expensive trips ever and cost the American tax payers between $60 and $100 million. That is correct. As millions of Americans are unemployed, under-employed, and struggle to get by on a day to day basis. This takes place as a record number of Americans are on food stamps and disability. This occurs as so-called sequestration has caused government departments to cut back and furlough workers. Barack Obama has said in the past that every one has to have skin in the game and must sacrifice? That is everyone but him. As Weasel Zippers states, “Just as long as the King and Queen of America enjoy themselves.” This man truly is a community agitator. Who does this at a time that the United States finds itself in record debt?

So let’s understand this, fighter jets will fly in shifts, giving 24-hour coverage over the president’s airspace, a Navy aircraft carrier or amphibious ship, with a fully staffed medical trauma center, will be stationed offshore in case of an emergency but yet Americans were left to die in Benghazi without any military help within an 8 hour range? Really? Furthermore, we are in the midst of questioning the IRS for their lavish and over the top wasteful spending, yet Obama’s jaunt to Africa gets the rubber stamp of approval? The LEFT will be quick to say, well Bush did it. Is that really a defense? I thought Obama wasn’t W? We realize that other presidents have gone on expensive trips as well, but this president is not supposed to be like others. Obama says he cares about the poor and the middle class. Obama claims that he identifies with the common man and plays class warfare. However, this imperial, do as I say, not as I do, let them eat cake president just snubs his nose at the American people and does any damn thing he wants at the expense of ‘We the People”. What a disgrace.

Hundreds of U.S. Secret Service agents will be dispatched to secure facilities in Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania. A Navy aircraft carrier or amphibious ship, with a fully staffed medical trauma center, will be stationed offshore in case of an emergency.

Military cargo planes will airlift in 56 support vehicles, including 14 limousines and three trucks loaded with sheets of bullet­proof glass to cover the windows of the hotels where the first family will stay. Fighter jets will fly in shifts, giving 24-hour coverage over the president’s airspace, so they can intervene quickly if an errant plane gets too close.

The elaborate security provisions — which will cost the government tens of millions of dollars — are outlined in a confidential internal planning document obtained by The Washington Post. While the preparations appear to be in line with similar travels in the past, the document offers an unusual glimpse into the colossal efforts to protect the U.S. commander in chief on trips abroad.


Obama’s trip could cost the federal government $60 million to $100 million based on the costs of similar African trips in recent years, according to one person familiar with the journey, who was not authorized to speak for attribution. The Secret Service planning document, which was provided to The Post by a person who is concerned about the amount of resources necessary for the trip, does not specify costs.

The Weekly Standard reports that after the WAPO questioned the costs of a planned family safari, the White House nixed the plan. So does that mean if we question the entire trip, they will cancel this ridiculous, over-priced boondoggle as well?

Sequestration = Obama Spring Vacation … As Barack Obama Makes Sure American Kids Cannot Visit the White House, Its Spring Break in the Bahamas For Obama’s Daughters


It is simply amazing just how arrogant, selfish and vindictive President Barack Obama truly is. Obama made sure that there will be no public tours of the White House for American school children due to the sequester; however, as stated by the Lonely Conservative, the sequester cuts do not apply to the Obama daughters. Far be it from Obama to lead by example or to partake in the shared sacrifice that he so often tells us that we should do. As reported at Breitbart, Sasha and Malia Obama are quietly vacationing at the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.

Sasha and Malia Obama are quietly vacationing at the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas, Breitbart News has learned.

A source tipped Breitbart News off to the First Daughters’ spring vacation, which was not publicly announced or reported.

Breitbart subsequently confirmed President Barack Obama’s daughters’ trip with other sources. Both the White House and the Atlantis resort declined to confirm the report or comment, but another guest provided a photograph of Sasha and Malia at the resort.


Obama: “If Everyone Took An Attitude Of ‘Shared Sacrifice’ We Can Solve Our Debt” … Maybe Obama could start with himself?

Isn’t that special? As Barack Obama prevents school children from visiting the White House and going on a White House tour in his vile and reprehensible act to try and inflict pain upon the American public under the guise of sequestration, his children are allowed to go on a tax payer funded vacation. Where is that shared sacrifice again Barack? This president is nothing more than an abject disgrace,
