The Dems are elitist poufs who manipulate the unionized working class, the poor, and minorities into believing that in spite of the stark contrast between their lifestyles and their constituents, they really care. (wink,wink)
Obama’s affectations attest to that.
Barack Obama stepped up criticism of Republicans on Saturday for blocking jobless aid, hammering home a Democratic election year attack line that casts the opposition as the party of the rich.
Obama has played a remarkable 41 rounds of golf since becoming president, easily outpacing his predecessor and possibly damaging his ability to portray himself in 2012 as a populist advocate of average folks. With the excursions lasting on average at least five hours, the president has devoted a total of more than 200 hours to golf, not counting time spent on the White House putting green. That’s the equivalent of twenty five eight-hour work days, or five work weeks spent smacking golf balls. The former community organizer’s 41 trips around the links – a standard of recreational activity well beyond the budgets of most Americans – compares to only 24 total outings for former President George W. Bush, according to statistics compiled by White House chronicler Mark Knoller of CBS News. Bush, whose golf outings were used to help deride him as a callow, lazy, rich boy, played his 24th and last round on Oct. 13, 2003, saying he was ending the practice out of respect for the families of Americans killed in Iraq.
Since the April 20 explosion that killed 11 rig workers and started the Gulf oil spill, Obama has teed up seven times, according to White House Dossier’s count. This includes back to back sessions April 23 and 24 while on vacation at the Grove Park Resort & Spa in Asheville, NC, just days after the crisis began.
B. Hussein’s brood vacations in Maine; the family dog flew in on his own personal jet.
The nation’s coastlines have been good to President Barack Obama this week – first with news BP’s gushing oil well is finally capped, then with a family vacation that got off to a spectacular start. In the first day alone it spanned the tallest mountain peak along the Eastern Seaboard, a bicycle ride beside a pristine lake and an exhilarating boat ride through a wind-whipped bay. The vacation for Obama, his wife, Michelle, and daughters Malia and Sasha continued Saturday with other planned activities centered on Acadia National Park, a 47,000-acre gem that brackets this upscale summer resort.
Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and the president’s personal aide Reggie Love, who chatted with Baldacci.
Dinner and a Broadway show: $200,000. Joyriding Air Force One around for a few hours over Manhattan: $250,000. Both courtesy of the taxpayers.
I can hardly wait for reports of champagne and caviar to trips to Key West, Monte Carlo, and the Orient Express, ‘just because’ he needs another vacation.
Obama, Pelosi, Reid, the Kennedys, Kerry; the whole lot of Dem politicians are filthy rich.
But B. Hussein has the gall to pin “party of the rich” on Republicans.
He’s the most lazy, detached, self-absorbed president in history. While a crisis rages, he plays golf, takes his wife to a Broadway show, and vacations in Maine, flying his dog in on a separate jet.
He’s simply not adult enough to handle the job of president, but we already knew that. This man-boy really has no idea of what to do. He’s totally unfit for office and void of leadership skills or intellect. In other words: EPIC. FAIL.
