Man o’ the people Obama to take a 20-day, $4 million taxpayer-financed vacation

What, worry about that fiscal crisis? Nah, King Obama’s got far more important things to worry about.

As Twitchy reported earlier, despite the fast-approaching fiscal cliff, President Obama can’t be troubled to meet with Congressional leaders. Well, it looks like the country will have to wait a little longer for even a halfhearted show of leadership. While the president is threatening Americans that Republicans will steal their $2000, he’s preparing to embark on a three-week, $4 million Hawaiian vacation. Funded by taxpayers, of course.

The Hawaii Reporter estimates that the total cost of the vacation to Hawaii and federal taxpayers, including funding for travel, staff and protection, is at least $4 million. Obama’s vacations are more expensive than those of previous presidents because of the huge costs to fly Air Force One and an accompanying cargo plane for nine hours or so to Hawaii.

The trip is set for December 17 to January 6. We’re set to reach the edge of the fiscal cliff on January 2. As Obama and the Democrats’ irresponsible policies send us hurtling toward economic disaster, the president and his family will be enjoying their pu pu platters. Maybe they’ll even do a little cliff diving of their own!

How many of those evil small business owners will be taxed to pay for the King’s President’s vacation. The government borrows roughly 40% of every dollar it spends. Therefore, Obama’s excellent Hawaiian adventure will add another $1.6 million to the national debt. I suppose he considers that some kind of investment in the future, or something. I wonder how the media would have reacted if, say, George W. Bush or Ronald Reagan took a $4 million dollar vacation when unemployment was 8% and the country was $16.3 trillion in debt.

    (Hey, it was a tough campaign. The President needs a little r n’ r, dontya know.)

  • Brian

    We all knew this would happen. He is not running anything, he is a figure head. He has never been president he was just a means to an end.

    Obama, or whoever he is, is now officially a walking talking and talking and talking encyclopedia of obscenities. Obscenities in the face of our Constitution. Obscenities in the face of capitalism. Obscenities in the face of patriotic service. Obscenities in the face of the rule of law. Obscenities in the face of common decency. Obscenities in the face of Christianity. Obscenities in the face of truth. Obscenities in the face of our flag. Obscenities in the face of everything that made our nation great.

    It’s perfectly alright–"He won" after all.

    • Pete Moore

      won what? 4 more years of you sitting on your couch in your parents basement thinking Xbox is a fucking career?

        Why are you so mad?  You still get your welfare checks and food stamps.

    My business phone hasn’t rung since the day after the election.

    In my humble opinion, Barky’s a dog and Moo’s a heifer. 

    • socon

       I’m sorry to hear that, MMcG.  Unfortunately, I’ve been hearing it a lot.

  • HuntingMoose

    so while he is gone, let’s kick Hawaii out of the union including it’s native born disaster they overthere are all so proud of

  • wodiej

    $4 million obama vacation = stupid voters.

  • dcnj

    You’ll have the rest of your life for a vacation.  Serve the people Mr. President….

    The problem we have in this country is that the people who have the power to do something about the ‘fiscal cliff’ are so wealthy that doing nothing doesn’t hurt them nearly as much as it hurts Joe Sixpack out in the heartland.  And the governing class doesn’t live in the same world we do because of their special insurance and retirement programs that we average citizens don’t have so the problem isn’t as pressing to them.

  • IndieDogg

    A vacation from what, exactly? He hardly broke a sweat swatting Mittens the Annoying Kitten, and he’s not exactly wearing himself out working on the nation’s business.

    I’m frankly astounded, even for his low bar of achievement. He’s out giving speeches, talking about Scrooge and Christmas and telling people to call their Congressman.

    Can’t someone in the audience stand up and say, "Aren’t you the President? Why don’t you call them yourself? What are you doing out here talking to us about Santa Claus?"

    Last night it occurred to me that our President may be this type of man:

    Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Bo will go first with his personal vetinarian by chartered airccaft. He wiil be followed  two days later by MO, her entourage of about 20 plus security staff and fashion reporters using Airforce 2. For protection, Airforce 2 will be accompanied by 2 fighter aircraft which will require also a refueling tanker. Finally Obama will follow in Airforce One plus a squadron of fighter planes with tanker. An additional charttered aircraft will be required for the press (also known as LSM) that cannot be accomodatedon Airforce One. Units of the Navy will be positioned along the route.

    Oh, how I wish Sarah would unload on the leadership of the Republcian Party as Mark Levin has all week. In fact, I’m done wishing for it!  I’m praying she does!!

    • alien4palin

      I am sure she will in her own time.

    All I can say is that takes him to 12/21/12 or Mayan doomsday


    Yep, BO and Moochelle (the beard) and the kids will go first, while Obama stays behind a few days to take a solo jaunt to Chicago’s "Man’s Country" for some personal attention. Do you realize we have never seen Obama kiss Moochelle on the lips?  It’s always the "roommate" cheek kiss.  And when you see them as a "family", Obama walks with one girl and Moochelle the beard walks along with the other girl. Obama is deceitful in every aspect of his life.

    He needs some exercise because he didn’t even work up a sweat disposing Romney. He could also use some fresh air before heading to the back rooms and his smoke filled man cave on the second floor of the people’s house. Disgust is to gentle a word.

  • Pete Moore

    Sad part is 51% of his brothas and sistas voted for this jerk off, and he’s leaving them high and dry. Insert the theme from the Jefferson’s here.
