The hypocrisy of Obama’s
15-day Vineyard vacation

Washington Times, by Joseph Curl

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/13/2014 6:42:49 PM

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists. (Why not forget; the president has.)

Preaching to the choir.

I hope all the Conservatives and Republicans who sat out the last election, to make a statement, are happy with what is going on in this country. It is just as much their vault as the fault of those that voted for this dreadful president.

I guess that is #1´s opinion. But maybe those "dreadful people" who did not vote, didn´t see anything to vote FOR. Ever think of that?????

I could not agree more with #1 about those 4 million who stayed home in 2012. Stupid.

If they´d voted, we´d have Pres. Romney now. And he wouldn´t be perfect. But we´d NOT have this socialist unAmerican idgit strutting around spending vast amounts of our $$$ on himself & his pet RAT projects.

If a house only has 7 bedrooms why do you need 9 bathrooms? I´m guessing the backyard doesn´t count as a bathroom on the Vineyard. He doesn´t work, he´s incompetent, I think vacationing is the best thing he can do for the Country. How big will ValJars house be? How much are we paying for her to spend 15 days at the beach.

Degrowth of the economy and the fundamental destruction of this nation is very important and hard work. His success is measured in misery and seeing America forced to participate in economic and social justice. 15 days? Next one will be 21 days in Hawaii.

re #1´s comment,It might be worth remembering that democrats paid and bribed ignorant people to vote for some things they hadn´t a clue about except of course those things that were free. Same day voters, multi precinct voters, dead voters, illegal alien voters, and, lest we forget, coercion by the union bosses, and mass media´s cherry-picked truth and democrat secretaries of state certifying the election before anyone can challenge the vote count. I know that I am fed up with voting for the lesser of two liars and would so appreciate having another such as Reagan to be happy to vote for. Meanwhile not voting really doesn´t help in a dreary sort of way.

It takes a lot of energy to single-handedly destroy a major nation. But no one has ever put as much effort into doing just that as Øvomit. Reagan put a lot of effort into destroying the USSR. Too bad it´s the USA for Øvomit. So I guess he needs a vacation to relax before he really puts the final nails into our national coffin in his lame-duck final two years.

Personally I wish he would go on vacation for the next two years. As long as he is on vacation, he isn´t actively trying to destroy this country. Works for me...

I hope those who didn´t vote for Romney to make a point, or something, are happy about the point they made.

Because the rest of us are grieving.

People who can´t see the big picture, beyond their sanctimonious selves, force the rest of us to live with the results of their short sighted, so-called principles.

Massive fraud re-elected this Fraud. When you get 100% of the vote that is 150% greater than the number of registered voters in a precinct, especially in swing states, Duh? the RNC was totally asleep at the switch. Then you have Soros owned Secy´s of States and vote counting systems.

The RNC better have poll watchers in every precinct, even if it requires side arms to be there. Anything less and we´ll be watching Hildabeast´s inauguration. Bet on it.

#12, the problem is... you are waiting on some "wonderful Republican" when we have very solid, capable candidates who would be great presidents, if we could stop looking for that perfect one. By the way, I am never quite sure who is this perfect candidate that you principled conservatives are supporting??

My two cents - it wasn´t just the Republican voters who sat home. It was a combination of those who sat home, fraud and the uninformed. Sitting home is a vote for the other party along with fraud and it will take a lot to get a win.

I think people forget that it is a privilege to vote. We take our freedom for granted and Obama capitalized on that. He knows that people don´t stay informed and they become gullible. We now have what we have.

...maybe the president — for appearances, if nothing else — could cut back a bit, too.
Not the Obamas. They won the White House and, by God, they’re going to enjoy their time there, no matter the cost.

It´s their turn. Make no mistake that the scenes playing out on the White House stage are deliberate pokes in the eye to white America. "This is what you can do to stick it to racist America."

And who cares what you think, anyway?

That is too clear. They´ve got attitudes, fluffing their feathers and puffing their chests as they spend our tax dollars. It´s vindictive and petty but their supporters love it.

The Obamas couldn’t care less about the perception of living high while many hardworking Americans are struggling to get by.

It´s less that they don´t care. It´s that they go out of their way to be uncaring, obnoxious, and ostentatious. It reveals their hatred and their desire to hurt people, of all colors.

Because of the high profile vacations and spending, Americans are now able to see that there is a difference between Left and Right, between how certain media cover the president. Before, it was just "the media" to low-information types. Now, a stark contrast between Left and Right is oozing out of the shadows and into the light.

While this polarization is not existentially good for America, all things considered, it is good for the unaware to become aware that one side is right and the other is wrong. One side tries to be decent, the other deliberately lies. Seeing the polar opposites is beneficial to the country.

Ironically, all Americans can now see that no, not all politicians are alike. Some are juvenile and immature while others are grownups. Some are spending your money while others are trying to give it back to you.

Vive la différence.

We don´t have a government what we have nesting in Washington a cabal of misfits from both parties with very few concerned about this once great country.
Ranting and pointing fingers won´t get us anywhere. I´m afraid elections are just going through the motions at this point. The only thing I believe will fix this is all out physical rejection of the deadwood in government and it´s getting to the point at my age that participation and caring are all but gone. I don´t visit here as often because I know what the news will be with this cabal of low IQ lying misfits in the White House with all their scandals. Any other president would have been impeached by now.

Obama, his wife and their daughters feel they are entitled to our money. The fact that they get to go on these wonderfully expensive vacations is only what they deserve. The kicker for them is the fact that they can lord it over the rest of us. They have no sense of how it looks because they don´t CARE how it looks. In fact, they actually enjoy shoving it in everyone´s face. They know we are paying for their excess and that makes it even better. They are parasitical hypocrites with an attitude. Do you think they ever feel an inkling gradititude? Heck no, all Michelle can do is complain.

As many Americans struggle from paycheck to paycheck the Obamas take yet another extended 15 day vacation. It gives His Majesty, Barack Obama, a break from berating the hated 1% and collecting millions for his next campaign. No one gives dollar estimates of how much hard earned tax payer money is squandered on each personal holiday anymore. They are measured by the truckloads of cash burnt through.

Obama is morphing into Mad King Ludwig. Ludwig commissioned the construction of two lavish palaces and a huge Castle. He spent all the royal revenues on these projects, borrowed extensively, and defied all attempts by his ministers to restrain him. Obama will spend as much as he wishes.

To expand slightly on #27´s comment: We no longer have a two-party system, and it probably wouldn´t matter much if we did.

Instead, we have the culmination of 50 years´ worth of single-minded effort by a morally deranged minority that has used every weapon in its considerable arsenal to bring about what we see today: the subjugation of every American citizen to an entrenched, unaccountable, and out-of-control imperial bureaucracy.

Enough of the blame game. In an election someone wins and someone loses. Let´s face it, Obama had a better machine on the ground and a better strategy than Romney. He went negative early and had Romney on defense most of time. Furthermore, with the press in his hip pocket, the outcome was predictable.
Time to move on and pray the GOP learns a thing or two from their past mistakes.

I see the current debasing of this once great country as reaping what we´ve sown. We who are aware and astute to what goes on complain a lot, but somehow God was taken out of public life with but a whimper from us. Our pulpits spewed tolerance and P.C. to "get along". We were careless in who we put up for election. Our media turned against us. Etc. We now must organize, muster interest, rally round the flag, in what appears to be too little too late. Point that finger of blame where it belongs.

When will people (and the PRESS in general) wake up to this man----a great speech giver who has followed through on exactly NONE of his election promises, both times...he could care less about people and is a living example of how you have to break some eggs to make an (Alinsky) omelet. Just heard that ABC news blocked a report by one of their own re: the IRS investigation being led by a woman who gave $6,000 to the campaigns. If it weren´t for Fox and the NET, nothing contrary to Obama would leak out. Howard Sterne complained mightily about Geo. Bush WORKING at the Ranch or Camp David; he says nothing about our golfer/vacationer in chief! Hypocrites!!!!!!

Blame each other if you like, but I believe four million Republicans and conservatives did not stay home. Because the Romney GOTV computers suffered a massive crash, it was impossible for his campaign to challenge the results, as it was unable to identify independently who had voted. Lois Lerner would understand.

#1... again show me the numbers that you refer to so blithely that back up your statement that Conservatives did not vote. I´m Conservative and I vote in every election no matter who is running and I always vote against Democrats and their enablers. So does every Conservative, because we are engaged in the process.

I´ve voted for McAmnesty, Dole, Romney and the list of losers goes on. It is about time for the Establishment to look in a mirror to discern the real reasons they keep losing.

That said, I think George W. Bush did a reasonable job and he wasn´t protected by his own Party from the sleazy attacks by the Democrats. That said, here we go again.

Grifters is too soft a term.

It will be interesting to see where they live and vacation after he finally leaves the White House and all the high living that has accompanied his luxury tour.

I don´t believe he will retain enough influence to cause his present high end barnacles to stick around and finance his lifestyle. Even in recent times Penny Pritzker, who was appointed or appointed herself to round up contributors for his presidential library and retirement mansion, appears to have come up empty. Everyone pleading that they were tapped out. And I´ll bet many were simply fleeing.

Once he cannot do anything for anyone, they´ll just be the Obamas, private citizens. What a comeuppance (or maybe letdown is more accurate) that will be. Can´t wait.

Excuse second post, but I jsut read up the thread.

The notion that there must be a perfect candidate in a presidential election or one will sit it out is lame to the max. Irresponsible. It is a vote for the other side. And that helped Obama to win.

No sophistry will serve to erase that truth.

Winners vote their choice in the primary and vote for the Republican nominee in the general. It´s high time we pulled our thumbs out of our mouths and became winners.

Here´s to everyone deciding to sweep out the Dems and to clip Obama´s spending/executive action wings in November, even if it means we hold our nose or squench our eyes while we do it. We really are all in this together, friends.

why people don´t vote for repubics?
Easy answer: what´s the difference? bush wanted amnesty, bailouts, supported huge deficits, didn´t actually wage war the way it has to be waged, tacitly watched the fascist bureaucracy building up and stifling America!!!
Same strategy is accepted by the rest of repubics - the whole GOP is doing it. What is the difference if we vote in more repubics like mccain, boehner, rubio, graham... They do nothing now, they won´t do nothing then.

Re #50, candidates/presidents have flaws. Ronald Reagan had flaws. There is no perfect candidate/president!!!!!

But how on earth can any thinking person say that Bush (or Romney) were/would have been worse for our dear country than Obama has been?

There isn´t a rationalization on the planet to justify allowing an Obama to become president. Not even just allowing it - facilitating it by not voting. That is the ultimate lo-do. We should know better. Sadly some of us don´t and may never get it.

Dead babies washing up on the shore of the Rio Grande and Zero and the family Zero are going on vacation to the Vineyard? Geraldo? Shep? NY Times? Washington Post? Chicago Tribune? Anyone out there?

Imagine President Romney, Bush (either one) or Reagan doing the same thing? (I know it is unimaginable because none of those men would have let this invasion get as far as it has and all of them good men and good Christians whose hearts would be torn open thinking their policies were causing this misery.) The press of course would never comment or begrudge those presidents their well earned vacations. Of course they wouldn´t. NOT!!!!! There would be pictures on the front pages of every news organization showing those precious little babies juxtaposed with pictures of anyone of the those presidents enjoying their vacation with their one percenter friends. You wouldn´t be able to turn on a news program (including Fox)or listen to a radio news story without the comparison of death and the accompanying description of luxurious living at the Vineyard. But with President Zero, nothing to see here. Disgusting.

I agree with #47. I am 72 years old and have voted in every election for the last 50 years. I wasn´t always happy with my choice but at least my candidate was more conservative than his opponent. I do not understand how someone can stay home just because their perfect candidate didn´t win the primary.

I would have voted for the devil himself over Barack Obama. Look what we have elected... a committed Marxist, a Muslim sympathizer and an anti-American as President. It could not have been worse. My 11 year old grandson would make a better President.

Reuters correspondent Arshad Mohammed caught State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki in a trap with a pointed line of questioning regarding the Obama administration’s knowledge of and response to the rise of ISIL. “Is the basic point you’re trying to make that you–that the administration fully grasped the threat posed by ISIL and took aggressive and effective action to confront that threat from the beginning of the year?” Mohammed asked. “Is that what you’re trying to argue?” “Yes,” Psaki said. “If that’s the case, if your actions were so effective and so aggressive, how is it that since the beginning of the year

On MSNBC´s Hardball tonight, host Chris Matthews argued with Obamacare architect Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel about President Obama saying it was "unlikely" that an Ebola case would strike the U.S. "Obama said it was unlikely. It has happened. It´s here," Matthews said. Dr. Emanuel said there is some "fear mongering" going on here, but Matthews said he was just quoting the president and stating facts. Here´s a bit of the argument that lasted nearly ten minutes: Chris Matthews : I´m just trying to follow the logic here. Everybody´s being told, don´t worry unless they have the infectious symptoms, you can see them,

Eric Holder’s exit leaves a

Who’ll be the next attorney general? Washington’s favorite parlor game is filling Cabinet vacancies; I like playing as much as the next pundit. (Keep reading!) Still, the more telling question is: Why are we playing this game at all? Why wasn’t the White House, which knew for months that Eric H. Holder Jr. was itching to leave, ready to roll with a successor? More important, given Holder’s foot inching toward the door, why did it not time this departure more intelligently — rather than having it arrive just before an election and the prospect of Democrats losing control of the Senate?

Oregon pols battle over when to

Cover Oregon was supposed to be a shining example of ObamaCare at its best. The state insurance exchange for the state of Oregon received $300 million in federal grants to launch a state-of-the-art website. But it never worked, and not a single Oregonian was able to sign up for health care from start to finish. So now, Oregon is in the process of pulling the plug on the site and switching over to the federal exchange and HealthCare.gov -- but the question is, how quickly they can do it. “We need to move forward and do the best thing for the people of Oregon,” Republican State Sen. Tim Knopp said, “and I think that’s ending Cover Oregon as

From the crisis in Ferguson, Mo., to the cultural impact of Robin Williams´ and Joan Rivers´ sudden deaths and all the way up to recent round-the-clock coverage of U.S. strikes on ISIS, cable news has been heavily occupied. The last three months have been so big, Fox News Channel just clocked its first quarter with the most-watched primetime across all of cable in more than a decade — even besting USA and ESPN. The average 1.79 million viewers between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m., Monday through Friday, gave FNC its first quarter atop the dial since the Iraq War broke out in 2003. Expanding that block by an hour,

A man with a gun that the Secret Service did not know about rode in an elevator with President Obama during his visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta on Sept. 16. The previously undisclosed breach, confirmed by two sources familiar with the case, raises new questions about the agency´s ability to protect the president. The incident, which took place three days before an intruder jumped a fence and sprinted inside the White House, involved a failure in Secret Service advance work to prevent an armed man from coming into close proximity with Obama while he was visiting the CDC to receive a

Washington - The Obama Administration announced Tuesday that it will pick up the bill for immigration attorneys who will be assigned to unaccompanied children from Central America and elsewhere who are stopped at the U.s. border. Dallas and Houston are two of a handful of cities where the money will be spent, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said in a phone call to The News Tuesday. The program starts today and will be funded with $9 million between now and the end of the next fiscal year. In all, the funds are estimated to be enough to pay for lawyers for more than 2,600 children.

New York - Thousands of New York City workers got a raise Tuesday, after New York Mayor Bill de Blasio took a page from the Obama administration’s executive order handbook. Mayor de Blasio’s executive order will require business tenants in certain city-subsidized building projects to raise their minimum wages from $11.90 per hour to $13.13, effective immediately for employees who do not receive benefits. For those who do receive benefits, such as health insurance, wages immediately climb to a minimum of $11.50 per hour, up from $10.30. Under previous regulations, only businesses receiving direct

Washington - The Obama administration is initiating a program to give refugee status to some young people from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador in response to the influx of unaccompanied minors arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border. Under the program, immigrants from those countries who are lawfully in the United States will be able to request that child relatives still in those three countries be resettled in the United States as refugees. The program would establish in-country processing to screen the young people to determine if they qualify to join relatives in the U.S. The program would not provide a path for minors to

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

A white Ohio woman is suing a Downers Grove-based sperm bank, alleging that the company mistakenly gave her vials from an African-American donor, a fact that she said has made it difficult for her and her same-sex partner to raise their now 2-year-old daughter in an all-white community. Jennifer Cramblett, of Uniontown, Ohio, alleges in the lawsuit filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court that Midwest Sperm Bank sent her the vials of an African-American donor´s sperm in September 2011 instead of those of a white donor that she and her white partner had ordered.

BOSTON — Many Massachusetts households are going to see their electric bills shoot up 37 percent this winter, a rate increase that some advocates fear will put additional strain on low-income families. State regulators approved the increase for National Grid household customers that would mean an average of $33 per month more for the typical residential customer and would push a typical monthly bill higher than $150. Large-business customers will see even higher increases. National Grid has almost 1.3 million residential and business electric customers in Massachusetts. The new rates take effect in November.
