Obama's motorcade to the bookstore on Martha's Vineyard

On the first day of his 10-day vacation in playground-of-the-rich Martha’s Vineyard, Obama bought some books from the Bunch of Grapes book shop. After shopping, he was driven to Vineyard Golf Club in Edgartown for a round of foursomes golf with long-time Chicago friend Eric Whitaker and two White House staffers.

Skippy and Michelle had taken separate government jets to Martha’s Vineyard, 500 miles from Washington, because Michelle just couldn’t, wouldn’t wait four hours for her husband.

The extra separate transport to get Michelle and daughters to the island cost taxpayers thousands in additional expenses. The costs related to Michelle’s solo trip mainly include the flight on the specially designed military aircraft she took instead of Air Force One, as well as any extra staff and Secret Service that had to be enlisted to go with her. She also had her own motorcade from the airport to their $50,000-per-week vacation farm-house.

Skippy arrived four hours later, using two helicopters and Air Force One to get to Martha’s Vineyard.

Thousands wait in line in Atlanta’s heat for the job fair

Meanwhile, on August 18, 2011, thousands of jobless Americans camped out overnight for a job fair in Atlanta, before waiting, dressed in their full business suits, in a seemingly endless line in the baking heat. Authorities treated 20 people for heat exhaustion as they struggled to keep the line moving and get people moved inside.

The “For the People Jobs Initiative” was hosted by Congressmen John Lewis and Hank Johnson of the Congressional Black Caucus, in response to an increase in Georgia’s jobless rate to 10.1% in July from the 9.9% in June. Last month was the 48th consecutive month that Georgia has exceeded the national unemployment rate of 9.1%. The unemployment rate for the state’s African-Americans is even worse, at 15.9%.

These desperate Americans must wait until Obama has finished vacationing for the unveiling of his new economic plan.

Obama says, “Ciao, baby! See you in September!”

  1. WASTEFUL is the word I associate with Obama. The motorcades and separate jets are a drop in the bucket compared to his spending since fraudulently taking office.

  2. What am I missing – why are these people still in office???? WTF is going on???? John Lewis is an idiot – heard him say he has no problems with nobama & that he sometimes call him “brother president” – really???? If any other president [repub or dem] did the things this a@#hole is doing, the press [what a joke] & the American people would be in streets protesting. Moo couldn’t wait 4 hours [again] – nobama telling boldface lies – AND NOTHING!!! SCREAMING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The worst thing about this whole scenario is that Obama is confirming all of the stereotypes previously associated with giving the black person power, meaning that he or she hasn’t the faintest idea of how to handle it. I have never taken stock in this because I feel it is always an individual thing and color of skin or ethnic origin has absolutely nothing to do with it. It is the intellect that tells the true nature of a human being and we have absolutely nothing to gauge Obama’s intellect with. Just because the Liberals/Progressives say he is brilliant does not make it so and, if they are the judges, we are all lost in a sea of propaganda which is as false as the millions of words said and written trying to convince the American people. A truly brilliant person does not need this 24/7 re-enforcement, but stands on his or her own merit. It is obvious that Obama cannot stand on his own and never has. One thing for sure, no one can buy a class act, you either have it or you don’t and anything else is a sham. Personally, I value dignity, pride and honesty above all the material wealth in the world.

    The special treatment for Barack and Michelle stems from the American custom of defending our leaders and their families from Harm’s Way. However, the Obamas have taken it to a brand new level of opulence. It is similar to Nancy Pelosi taking all her friends and family with her, at taxpayer expense, when she went to Europe. Most individuals like to go first class and receive a little attention but these people go beyond the “little” and jump feet first into super special treatment afforded kings and other rulars. Ironically, since Barack is a Muslim socialist who happens to be gay, this special treatment goes far beyond the pale and will not register with most Americans, those capable of thinking, that is.

  6. Sickening but not surprising from this self centered POS. God, 2012 can’t come soon enuf…

  7. What’s a few extra tens of thousands of taxpayer money.
    My concern is that the marriage is weak, and Obama might start doing cocaine again and cruising the gay bars (where is Larry Sinclair when you need him?).
    God help us>

  8. Deborah,he is probably doing just about anything you can imagine. I think they are living high on the hog while they can,they know their days are limited. What a nightmare.

  9. When Reagan and Bush took vacations, they went back home and cleared brush. Obama read the book about Reagan when he went to Hawaii last Christmas; but, he just can’t get past the silk purse/sow’s ear hurdle that marks the men of integrity from the carpetbaggers.
