President Obama is planning yet another swank vacation for next month, bringing his total vacation time/golf time/goof-off time to the fore once again. And it’s finally dawning on some Obama zombies that the president has a titanium-plated tin ear when it comes to how his vacations and tee times are perceived.
I love my summer vacation. I like President Obama more than most of you.
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.
I’d prefer that he join the 9.2% who are reported to be unemployed.
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.
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.
That last sentence gets pretty close to blaming Obama for the economy that Obama keeps blaming on Bush. If Obama is losing MSM columnists who claim to like him more than most of us, then he’s in even more trouble than I thought.
On the other hand, maybe we have an answer to the question I asked earlier. He’s planning his Barack-acation!
