WARNING: GOP HEAD EXPLOSIONS AHEAD.
CAUTION: HEAD EXPLOSIONS AHEAD Guess who's gnawing their knuckles over the Obama vacay?
Okay. I'll tell you.
In between wetting their pants over the fact that President Obama won the White House a second time and the fact that Mrs. Obama, known to them as "Mooochie," or some other idiocy their little rodentian minds can think up, the GOOPers spend their very limited intellectual moments bellowing about the OBAMA VACATIONS! Because only this First Family has ever taken vacations and because they're Kenyan usurpers who shouldn't be spending god-fearing Christian, liberty loving, tax-payers' money on such Marxist frivolities as VACATIONS! and because MOOOOOOOOCHIE!
Poor demented, Obama-deranged banshees, ululating into the wind about the president and his family taking vacations while the rest of us actually live our lives and, oh, yeah, take our summer vacations with our families.
They're to be pitied more than mocked. But, y'know, mocking is good too. And something they so richly deserve.
"Every time President Obama and his family take a vacation, the hypocrites on the right whine and complain about it. They typically gripe about how much it costs taxpayers, or how terrible it looks in light of all the people struggling economically in this country.
Here are some of the complaints this time, as President Obama and his family enjoy an 8-day vacation at Martha’s Vinyard. Utah Republican Rep. Chris Stewart:
'Most of the people in my district could never afford to visit Martha’s Vineyard, and those who could would feel uncomfortable vacationing in a place that has a reputation for being for the elite.'
Maryland Republican Party chairman Diana Waterman:
'When there are so many people out there looking for jobs and Americans are struggling to make ends meet, this sends the wrong message to people who are struggling to survive.'
Here’s a couple of reality checks for those critics:
At the same point in his presidency, George W. Bush had taken 399 days of vacation, much of it spent at his Crawford, Texas ranch. DURING A TIME WHEN AMERICAN MILITARY MEN AND WOMEN WERE DYING IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN! "Now watch this drive."
Our do-nothing Congress, which has the lowest approval rating of any Congress and is liked less than herpes, is on a FIVE WEEK VACATION.
President Obama, meanwhile, has taken just 87 days of vacation during his presidency."
Here's something the Stupids on the right fail to understand:
Remember how the rightwing blogsphere lit up with red-hot anger over the number of days "Dubya" took while he was president?
No. Neither do I.
But it doesn't matter, because BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA!
And that's the way it is.
