According to an article in the Weekly Standard and ABC News Obama is averaging one vacation a month and lavishly too.
In the first three months of the year, members of the first family have been on three vacations, averaging a vacation a month. And now it’s being reported that the first daughters are on a spring break vacation in the Bahamas.The Obamas began the new year in Hawaii. “President Obama departed Hawaii this morning for Washington, after spending NINE days vacationing with family and friends in his native state. Here’s a quick look at how he spent his vacation,” ABC reported on January 6, 2013.“Obama played FIVE rounds of golf with SEVEN different partners, spending roughly THIRTY hours on TWO different courses on Oahu. The president made FIVE early morning trips to the gym at the nearby Marine Base at Kaneohe Bay. The First Family spent TWO afternoons enjoying the beach on the base and went for ONE hike to a local waterfall. The president spent ONE father-daughter afternoon with Malia and Sasha, bowling and going out for shave ice, an annual tradition.” Then the first lady and their daughters vacationed in Aspen over President’s Day weekend. “First Lady Michelle Obama arrived in Aspen on Friday afternoon and is here with her daughters for a ski vacation,” Aspendailynews.com reported in February. “Few details about her trip were available. Sources said she is staying at the home of Jim and Paula Crown, owners of the Aspen Skiing Co. She is reportedly skiing at Buttermilk today, where the Crowns, of Chicago, own a home on the Tiehack side.”
Now while thousands of students all across the U.S. go on spring break, the first family is enjoying another lavish vacation at Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island in the Bahamas. All at our expense mind you like all his vacations.
Not that there is anything wrong with that, but this coming from the man who closed the white house tours and cancelled the annual white house Easter Egg hunt because of the sequester and said we’ll all have to suffer for it when that was a complete scare tactic lie. He had to make up his own suffering situations for us when his doom and gloom lies were proven false.
The left loves to retaliate and say Bush went on lots of vacations too, but Bush went to his ranch in Texas for vacations and he had offices there for his staff and met with them daily. His was also working vacations since besides meeting with his staff he also worked around the ranch clearing brush and sawing wood.
Meanwhile as Obama cancels white house tours and says we can’t afford things, he manages to send a billion dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and has John Kerry give a million to the Palestinians while we “suffer” at home because of the sequester.
V.P.Biden also topped a huge bill for his one night stay in London and Paris topping a million dollars.
During his first term Obama went on more vacations than any other president and played more rounds of golf than any other president.
