Is she kidding? Does she actually think he cares what people think.
Get a grip, honey, he's not paying you any attention.
I love my summer vacation. I like President Obama more than most of you.Obama's "plan" is working. He's actually got no plan, but he's managed to scare the daylights out of lame-brained columnists. Admittedly, that's not difficult.
But a new Marist Poll says that for the first time ever a majority of American adults — 55 percent — will not be booking a summer vacation this year. They’re too worried about jobs and money. The “Staycation” of 2009 has morphed into the “Naycation” of 2011.
But Obama, who’s got us panicked over this debt-ceiling stalemate, will soon be off — again — to Blue Heron Farm, Martha’s Vineyard. Check out the pictures of this “farm” online. You practically drool. It looks like the centerfold of “Town & Country,” the magazine for aspiring zillionaires.
But unless Obama fixes this fiscal disaster — now — he can’t go. He should have a staycay like the rest of us.By my estimate, the Barack-acation began 30 months ago tomorrow. How much actual work has he put in on the job? Very little, judging by the disastrous results.
Instead, he’ll be looking at 28 acres on the water from a pristine white Victorian farm house handsomely appointed with Restoration Hardware-style chairs and tables on an elegant patio. There’s also a reconstructed Pennsylvania hay barn dating back to the 1800s and a boat house for the Boston Whalers and catamarans to cruise Tisbury Great Pond. Plus a golf green and pool and flower gardens, vegetable gardens and apple orchard — not a droopy leaf in site. And don’t forget the basketball court.
Let’s call it a Barack-acation.
Meanwhile jittery Americans will enjoy their “staycations” this summer, rearranging shelves in the basement and fighting with the electric company over air-conditioning bills. The “naycation” set — that’s the elderly, veterans and the disabled — will sweat it out just getting a government check August 3. The unemployed, meanwhile, can just keep enjoying their unwanted days off.Obama would just love to see riots if our benevolent government started withholding checks. Just another little something he could blame on the GOP, gleefully enabled by the media. It's like a re-election wet dream of his.
Barack Obama is running for re-election with dismal poll numbers, more than 9 percent unemployment, gas sneaking back to $4 a gallon and a blistering heat wave melting us all. It’s just an unseemly time for him to be frolicking surfside on a summer vacation that may well cost us beleaguered taxpayers as much as $50,000 just for the house — forget the Secret Service and all that presidential security.They just had a vacation to Africa. Let them stay home in the lavish comforts of the White House.
Michelle and the girls would be crushed, no doubt, to pass up two weeks in Chilmark. But there are millions of other kids who are feeling pretty miserable this summer, too, and their daddies had nothing to do with this mess.
