Skip to comments.Timing of Obama vacation another brick in the wall
Posted on 12/02/2012 10:00:33 AM PST by cap10mike
President Obama is once again in disengagement mode. The first family has scheduled another vacation for three weeks, beginning Dec. 17. This in and of itself doesnt bother me. Presidents are entitled to take vacations even presidents who spend more time on the golf course than they do in the Oval Office. I dont even begrudge him the disruption hell be causing his constituents. According to the Hawaii Reporter, the Obamas vacation will hugely restrict the comings and goings of the residents living in the upscale Oahu neighborhood, where theyll be staying. Streets will be barricaded and, unlike many voting precincts, identification will be in constant demand. In this day and age of terrorism, whether the president believes it exists or not, this, too, is understandable, although I believe he could have chosen a locale where the neighbors lives would be less disrupted, especially during the holidays. Have the Obamas ever heard of Camp David? And then theres the price tag, which while mind-bogglingly pricey, doesnt even rate my rage meter today. The Obamas three-week fling will cost the taxpayers a cool $4 million. Although this bothers me somewhat, I wont complain. I realize security costs money. Itd be nice if they could keep expenses down to a mere $1 million a week, though, wouldnt it? No, my real beef is with the timing of the thing.

Two words from Barry, “I won”.
shouldn’t be surprising’many muslim families take month-long vacations around christmas.
I really wonder how many people bought the line about him “reaching across the aisle and working together with the opposition”?
So when the news readers state there are four weeks until the ‘fiscal cliff’ ... there really are only TWO weeks and a few days!
Responsibility to Benghazi Barry is “above his paygrade”.
The arrogance of this cretin is mind-boggling but, this is what we get when we allow liberals to control our schools and dumb down our kids.
Notice how Democrat presidents take off for Christmas, forcing Secret Service agents to be away from their families? Reagan and the two Bush presidents would wait and leave after Christmas so the agents could be at home.
Now is there any wonder that many decent family men leave the service because of the intolerable working conditions? What they have left are quite a few swinging single types (unfortunately, not always single) who go for the wild life. Hence, the poor judgement and scandals.
Reaching across the aisle are RINOs and Conservatives caving. We are toast.
The timing of this so-called ‘vacation’ is precisely defined by the 12th amendment. He is making himself completely unavailable and unapproachable between the states’ certification of their electoral voters and the counting of the electoral votes by the joint session of congress.
This in and of itself doesnt bother me”
...why doesn’t it?! Why in the hell does every article make a mention that some things about this turd “doesn’t bother them” or “it’s ok”?! Everything about this peon is bad news! Period!
You've nailed it - and don't forget; "public schools" worked really well for Adolph Hitler.
No need for him to actually work in the oval office... while there are thousands of fellow traveler bureaucrats minding the store at the EPA, FDA, HUD, State, gun-running consulates, un, congressional ‘Rats, and courts at every level...
That’s all he knows.
That’s right, and he’s using the time to make his pitch to the voters instead of negotiating with congress.
Yep, that’s one way of looking at it that I’d never thought of. Thanks.
It’s basically pure Chicago style arrogance. He knows Boehner, and crew are too CS to close down the government, and they will give him what he wants.
Obama says “What, ME Worry?”
I never noticed that before, but you’re right. Also, Republicans generally go home for their “time off,” cutting down expenses and making security easier.
“...why doesn’t it?!...”
I wholeheartedly agree - the Hawaiian 3 week vacation can and should bother us and we don’t need to feel guilty that it bothers us! This man and his wife rub their vacations in our faces when many of us are struggling ...
You’re probably right. Boehner has already caved on ObamaCare. Defund it, for crying out loud!
