How Many Vacations Does One Worse-Than-Useless President Deserve a Year?


How many vacations do the “little people” get to go on a year?

In my case, it’s anything from zero to two, which averages out to a nice, even one. Or possibly a 0.89.

Even Hollywood Stars might jet out four times a year at best. Despite their ever-degrading brain cells, I’m sure that they do work hard for their money, putting in long hours and signing on for one movie after another after another.

All that leaves only so much room for frolicking in the waves.

But President Obama and his family? They’re a different story altogether.

All work and no play might make Jack a dull boy. But all play and no work make the Obamas spoiled. In so many senses of the word.

The Weekly Standard reports that, “In the first three months of the year, members of the first family have been on three vacations, averaging a vacation a month.”

From late December to the first few days of January, they were in Hawaii. Then it was off to Aspen for First Lady Michelle Obama and the girls over President’s Day weekend, while President Obama himself went down to Florida for a golf weekend. And now the First Daughters are reportedly on Spring Vacation in the Bahamas.

With all of that goofing off, it’s amazing that they find time to meddle in our lives so much. Though it’s no wonder that the economy is still uncertain, that our standing in the world has sunk severely and that most Americans don’t think we’re headed anywhere happy or healthy.
