President Obama gave speeches in Illinois and Missouri last week in which he tried to convince Americans that his economic policies are on the right track and that the economy is recovering as a result.
Last weekend the Associated Press released research data which showed that “Four out of five U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near-poverty or reliance on welfare for at least part of their lives, a sign of deteriorating economic security and an elusive American dream.”
Obama said last week that “I’ve got a little over twelve hundred days left in office.” and “I am going to spend every waking minute of every one of those days thinking about, and then acting upon, any good ideas out there that are going to help ordinary Americans succeed.”
This week Americans learned that Obama and his family will be going on holiday to Martha’s Vineyard for eight days starting on August 10. They will be staying at a 7.6 million dollar luxury home which sits on 9.5 acres and has tennis courts, swimming pools, a gymnasium, ocean views and a basketball court among its features.
This on top of an enormous inordinate number of holidays, excursions, golfing days and time off spent goofing around instead of actually working he’s already taken during his Presidency, holidays, excursions, golfing days and time off spent goofing around that cost American taxpayers an enormous amount of money just like this holiday is.
Obama the absentee President?
Presumably Obama won’t take advantage of any of the amenities of the Martha’s Vineyard house and will spend every waking minute there thinking about the economy.
And the moon is made of green cheese too.
And that my friends is why no one believes him anymore, why he has no credibility anymore.
What he says and what he actually does are very, very different.
His rhetoric and his reality are very, very different.
Its not just the economy either.
Its national security, infringement of Americans freedom and civil liberties, international relations, the Middle East, his personal and professional past, anything and everything he talks about, anything and everything he does.
Maybe the moon really is made of green cheese.
