Vacation News from The Revolution. Forward !

LINK
Never has our courageous African-American President ever failed to defend The People.
Yet it is sad that he is forced to leave the racist, reactionary, forces of backwardness for his own sanity.
HE gives so much to The People.
And he suffers so much on our behalf.
I trust that he will return refreshed and full of Revolutionary Zeal.
Forward !

quote:

The first family will be vacationing in Hawaii for the Christmas holidays at a cost of at least $4 million to taxpayers, according to a report from the Hawaii Reporter.

The Hawaiian paper reports that residents living near the beachfront homes at Kailuana Place, where the President Obama and first family have visited annually since 2008, were notified Monday that there will be restrictions on their movements in place for 20 days, from Dec. 17 through Jan. 6.



Author Robert Keith Gray estimated in his book “Presidential Perks Gone Royal“ that last year taxpayers spent $1.4 billion on the first family, compared to the $57.8 million British taxpayers spent on the royal family.

Valarie Jarrett has been doing fine without him for four years. I am sure she can manage another 20 days.

W took 1020 vacation days during his presidency. One third of time in the White House. Reagan is in second place. No one will ever touch these two. Obama would have to take more than half of his remaining term off. Funny that vacation time is now an issue. I would say your obsession with this issue is the failure.

Wonder how many Christmas gifts that money could have bought for poor and underpriviledged children?

Backward.

Unlike those two chimps, the Dear Leader has EARNED his vacation.
The issue is not the billion dollar plus cost.
The issue is why it's not much, much more, as you imply.
For maybe the first time in my life I can say I'm truly proud of my country.
If the Great Indispensible Man wants to take a vacation to Hawaii, in the interests of The State,and with the full approval of The People, I say Earth-Mother-speed.
The only dissent will come from the usual greedy, private-sector, Business- Class types.
We are most fortunate to have him.
Forward !

So if O is going to be in Hawaii for the last 2 weeks of the year, who's gonna lead on the fiscal cliff matter?

It's not like he has led on anything anyways, but just curious who he will blame when he won't even be there.

As in the past, it is doubtful that Obama will be there for the full time that Michelle and the kids will be there.

While I do enjoy your posts pimp, nearly all of those costs are associated with operating Air Force One and Marine One and the security detail. If a President Romney decided to take a vacation to Hawaii the cost would be the same.

Oh, I agree.

Not really a vacation, but you already know that.

Good grief.
The Royal family is from the monarchy that ruled England, and was passed along by bloodline and in essence was somewhat dictatorial in nature.

The First Family is elected from We the People and is not entitled to living much grander than the royalty that my ancestors fought and left in the 1700's.
