Walking That Razor's Edge Between Pretending To Be Progressive And...

Acting Like Fucking Royalty Bathing In Champagne

"The Obama Administration seems to have a 'Let them eat cake - but make it a diet, low carb cake' mentality

"U.S. President Barack Obama and the First Lady, Michelle Obama, have a 'do as I say, not as I do' attitude toward the citizenry of America.

They use tax dollars to fund a lifestyle worthy of the wealthy 1%, yet they preach a redistributionist view of America that makes the far left Occupy Wall Street mob proud. The laundry list of activities where the President and First Lady have taken actions inconsistent with what the are preaching to America is long.

Remember, leadership by example is very important for American politicians. This leadership quality seems lacking with President Obama.

The President lives a lavish lifestyle and loves his expensive luxury vacations, at a time while Americans are hurting. He is frequently seen eating burgers and fatty foods while in public at a time that the First Lady is promoting healthy eating by others.

This Administration seems to have a "Let Them Eat Cake - but make it a Diet Low Carb Cake" mentality.

President Obama flew to Florida this past week to explain high gas prices. According to the Washington Post, on his way to Florida this past Thursday, reporters were "perplexed" at the President's 41 minute flight from Washington, DC to Orlando, Florida taking 1 hour and 15 minutes. The flight was in the air an extra 30 minutes, burning precious fossil fuels.

It does not seem a coincidence that the President landed right at half time of an NBA basketball game between the star studded Miami Heat and New York Knicks. Some theorized that the President delayed his flight in the air to watch more of the basketball game.

Now Americans would take the Obama family more seriously if they lived a Spartan lifestyle. If the Obama's showed the American people that they are willing to give up some of the trappings of wealth to set a good example for average Americans, then Americans might heed the Obama call for sacrifice.

The exact opposite seems to be true. The Obama family are living the lifestyle of millionaires with money to burn.

cake eaters. hummff

The Obama family just finished a luxury ski vacation in Aspen, Colorado. This comes on the heels of a Hawaiian Christmas vacation for the family that lasted a few weeks. The 2011 Hawaiian vacation cost the American taxpayers $4 million and a big increase from the 2010 bill sent to the American people for $2.5 million, according to the Huffington Post.

Over the past three summers, the Obama's have vacationed in the exclusive Blue Heron Farm in Chilmark, Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. President Obama has a reputation for hitting every golf course on this island vacation spot for the rich and famous.

There is nothing wrong with a President taking a modest vacation, but there is a problem when the political leader of America is taking frequent swanky vacations when average Americans are experiencing economic pain.

Your average American family is terrified of the $15.3 trillion in national debt, high unemployment numbers and a stumbling economy, yet they see the leader of the free world vacationing in the most exclusive areas of the United States. They see a President calling for more sacrifice in the form of higher taxes, yet he seems not to be sacrificing a thing."
