Obama To Take Yet Another 1%er Vacation

Having solved all of the world’s problems, Obama has turned his laser like focus towards income inequality. The White House has been send out tweets

Will $10.10/hour pay for this?

(The Blaze) President Obama’s plate is full of difficult situations, foreign and domestic. From the crisis in Ukraine and Crimea to the instability brewing in Venezuela and North Korea still lobbing missiles into the sea. And then there is the President’s ongoing battle against income inequality in America.

If there was only a place that where he could go to relax. A place that believed “The busier life gets, the more we seek true tranquility, a place where the world’s clamor can be shut out and forgotten for a while.” Luckily, the President has found such a place.

President Obama (and we assume his family) is reportedly about to take another vacation.  This time the First Family is expected to visit the Ocean Reef Club, a very private, gated community that requires the sponsorship of a member in order to play golf on one of its three courses.  Ocean Reef is a place Marc Caputo from the Miami Herald’s Blog also called, “about as far away from middle class as you can get in Key Largo.”

The White House will neither confirm nor deny the trip, but, as The Blaze found out, the Ocean Reef Club sent out a message to all members about “expecting a distinguished guest” and disruptions. The Chicago Sun Times has also reported on Obama heading to the club for an uber-1%er weekend. Not good for Obama’s “carbon footprint” (nor the taxpayer coffers), since Air Force 1 is too large to land on the island, so at least 5 helicopters will be needed to move everyone, according to that article.

Hey, Obama needs the rest after so much campaigning. This should help with the old approval rating, eh?

    Most Democrats don’t have luxury vacation homes (Carter had his peanut farm) like Repugs do. Heaven’s Ranch (Reagan), the Kennebunkport Compound (Bush I), the Prairie Chapel Ranch (Bush II), so they take vacations on the road.

    Prez Vacation Days/year

    Reagan 61
    Bush I 136
    Bush II 61
    Obama (1st term) 18

    We can assume that the Repugs don’t fly commercial to their opulent vacation estates on their own dime, but probably also use government transportation and security. Were you this upset with Reagan, Bush and Bush taking 12 to 24 weeks of vacation a year at taxpayer expense? Or is it only President Obama and his black wife and black children that upset you?

    You hate the President of the United States. We get it. It’s called Obama Derangement Syndrome. You’re part of a cult.

    Dithering burns quite a few calories. No wonder he’s exhausted!

    Yeah. Like Kerry and Kennedy were just poor dirt farmers.

    But once again we see how Jeffery, lacking any real argument, resorts to childish name calling.

    Were you this upset with Reagan, Bush and Bush taking 12 to 24 weeks of vacation a year at taxpayer expense?

    Except returning home to a place where there are known security issues that have been addressed is different from going all over the world and paying the extra costs.

    That’s the real issue Jeffery. It is as if you are defending opulent spending at a time when the economy is not doing well. It is as if you are jealous that people like Reagan and Bush had a place to go to.

    It is clear that you are jealous of success and don’t like the fact that people are successful. It is also clear that you are going to defend Obama hypocrisy because it matches yours.

    We don’t hate the President of the United States. We disagree with the man sitting in the chair. Apparently you can’t tell the difference so you make ridiculous charges and show how jealous you are of other people.

    If there is a mental illness here, it is in your head.

    Plus, Obama is worth more than a million himself. He could well afford a “luxury vacation home” if only he wasn’t so damn cheap and insisting on sponging off the taxpayers and his rich friends for his amenities!

  5. Obama (1st term) 18

    Sorry, chump, wrong again. In fact, he took 83 vacation days, virtually none, if any, at his home. Both Bushes, along with Reagan, spent time at their own homes quite a bit.

    He also golfed 113 times. 57 evening outings. 72 days at Camp David. And this doesn’t even cover the number of days he was off campaigning rather than engaging in POTUS business.

    But, of course, Jeffy misses the point, that Obama is playing the income inequality game yet being a big 1%er.

    And, let’s face it, most in Congress either have nice vacation homes or take super nice vacations, because most were already rich (good for them), and/or enrich themselves by being an elected representative (bad)

    “expecting a distinguished guest” OH! They’re bringing Bo with them?
    I don’t care how much vacation he takes, the longer he’s away the less harm he can do to my country.
    I do however care that he spends so damn much on his lavish vacations. And so would Jeffrey if it were a Republican gallavanting around the world with his family of four and on two Air Force Planes most of the time.

  7. […] while Obama whines about income inequality, he’s going on another, expensive, lavish vacation to Florida with family this weekend, mostly to golf. That’ll surely show Vladimir […]

  8. Butt-Frozen_Gumballs says:

    Yep. Now that Ukraine has been tossed overboard, he can relax.

    So, let’s see. Give up on Iran? Check!
    Give up on Egypt? Check!
    Give up on Syria? Check!
    Give up on Ukraine? Check!
    Give up on Israel? Double-check with a side-measure of disdain and threats.

    Add for dessert the disdain for America and his wish for utter economic disaster for her? Still ongoing!

  9. Jeffery says:

    teachy,

    Sorry yourself chump. Note the table heading was vacation days/year.

    Obama is taking less vacation time than your heroes. Probably less than your man-crush, Putin.

    You hate the President of these Unites States, and you’ll say anything to demean him, which is your right. But stop pretending.

  10. No, Jeff, we hate his policies, and despise him as president. Unlike you liberals, who loathed Bush personally. Same with Reagan. Admit it.

  11. Conservative Beaner says:

    Jeff,

    When Reagan and Bush II went home they did not shut down local roads and disrupt businesses while they took vacations. Obama shows up and everything goes to hell and busisness owners don’t like it.

  12. Jeffery says:

    I did not loathe either man. I predicted that President Reagan’s economic policies of cutting taxes on the wealthy and running up the national debt would harm the nation, and I was correct. Many of the troubles we see today in the US are from Reagan’s misguided policies and their spawn. Where I was totally wrong was in assuming the people would finally discard the toxic ideas of the far right as a result. The far right are much like cockroaches, once you have an infestation, you can hardly get rid of them.

    Mr. Bush’s tax policies and invasion policies were my two main problems with him.

    I’m a liberal and favor liberal policies, as I believe they will benefit the people of our nation. If either man had had progressive policies I would have championed them.

    Are you friggin’ nuts?

    On 8 of the 10 key economic variables examined, the American economy performed better during the Reagan years than during the pre- and post-Reagan years.

    Real economic growth averaged 3.2 percent during the Reagan years versus 2.8 percent during the Ford-Carter years and 2.1 percent during the Bush-Clinton years.
    Real median family income grew by $4,000 during the Reagan period after experiencing no growth in the pre-Reagan years; it experienced a loss of almost $1,500 in the post-Reagan years.
    Interest rates, inflation, and unemployment fell faster under Reagan than they did immediately before or after his presidency.
    The only economic variable that was worse in the Reagan period than in both the pre- and post-Reagan years was the savings rate, which fell rapidly in the 1980s. The productivity rate was higher in the pre-Reagan years but much lower in the post-Reagan years.

    Many of the troubles we see today in the US are from Reagan’s misguided policies and their spawn.

    No, we see the troubles today from people wanting to steal the product of other people’s work. Obama has continued the disastrous policies of increasing dependency on government, stifling growth and impeding creating of jobs.

    I’m a liberal and favor liberal policies, as I believe they will benefit the people of our nation.

    Yet history shows the exact opposite. Liberal policies don’t benefit the nation or its people. Liberal policies only seek to enslave people and make them more dependent rather than independent.

    Once again we see that you simply hate the idea of freedom in this country.

    I predicted that J was going to be a bloated balding scabies infected half dwarf living in his step-mom’s sub-basement while she struggles to make rent. And I was correct.

    J is not a liberal. He’s a anti-human Communist who loves to hate on women, minorities and especially republican ones.
