Default Obama Prioritizes Family Spring Break Over White House Tours

Quote:
As spring break begins for schoolchildren across the country, thousands of students will travel to Washington, DC. The trips, funded by bake sales and other events throughout the year, will allow the students to take in Washington's historic landmarks.

One premier destination is off-limits this year, however. A few weeks ago, the Obama Administration announced it was suspending public, self-guided tours of the White House as a result of the automatic sequester cuts that the administration proposed in 2011. While America's students stand outside the White House fence, the First Daughters, Sasha and Malia, are enjoying spring break with friends at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.

Breitbart News' Matt Boyle broke the news Monday morning that numerous sources have reported seeing the First Daughters in the Bahamas this weekend. Presumably, the Obamas are paying the costs of the resort out of their own pockets. The robust Secret Service detail that must accompany the First Daughters, however, is funded by taxpayers.

The principal reason the White House canceled public tours was to save money on Secret Service staff. The White House reported that suspending the tours would save $74,000 a week. Other reports have put the savings at just $18,000 a week.

AH, yes, the hypocrisy of obama has no limits. He screws the taxpayers and demands sacrifice, but when it comes to his family, that's another story. I doubt he even realizes what a hypocrite he is.

The kids are just following their parents example, golf in Florida and skiing in Colorado a few weeks after an extended Hawaiian vacation. Where is the outcry over a member of the 1% indulging in such extravagance? Naw, President Obama understands the plight of the middle class decimated by corporate greed.

T.V. must be boring if this is all you can drag up to complain about. How about the cost of the phony and criminal bush inspired wars in Afghanistan and Iraq? The trillions spent and more trillions to be spent and hundred of thousand of lives, innocent men, women and children. This should make the right to lifers sit up and take notice but no, they're worrying about Michelle's dresses or Obama's golf clubs or whatever.
If you're bored, turn off fox news and maybe read Vince Bugliosi's book (yuck, a book? How boring you say? ) on how he would prosecute Bush for murder, no statute of limitations on murder and Bugliosi won a lot of cases, maybe all of them.

Bush isn't in charge of policy any longer, Obummer is. As such, his hypocrisy is actually of import today. If you'd like to start a thread about Bush's wars, I'd be happy to explain what a dip**** he was in them. But, this is about Obummer and his calls for people to pay their "fair share" so he can go on more vacations.

That's the part Obama supporters hate to admit, so they redirect to Bush...

No matter what Bush did, he can NEVER be called a hypocrite because he never demanded sacrifice of others...he never said we all needed to have "skin in the game" like Obama did...

An old analogy of mine...The "green tie" analogy...

If a president wears a green tie once or twice a week...No big deal...

But if the president campaigned yelling "I will never wear a green tie!" or gets elected and says "Green ties will never be part of my wardrobe!"...and THEN wears a green tie once or twice a week, then it IS a big deal...

The president is a hypocritical liar...

That's Obama's problem here...If he kept his yap shut and he and his family did all of these vacations, it wouldn't be a big deal...

But he DIDN'T keep his yap shut...

Instead, he went around yelling how everyone needed to cut back...How everyone needed to sacrifice...How everyone needed to not be so un-frugal...

Remember when he chastised people who went to Las Vegas?...

"You can't go take a trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayer's dime."...he said...

But Obama's ACTIONS say "You can't go take a trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayer's dime....Now excuse me while I golf with Tiger Woods on the taxpayer's dime."...

...and THAT is the hypocrisy...

He says "Everyone needs to sacrifice", but does NO sacrificing of his own...And far worse, uses the public's dime to do so much "anti-sacrificing"...

As a side note, Bush CAN be criticized as a hypocrite for being against nation-building...and then producing the largest nation-building cause in American history...That's legit...

How Obama supporters can't see that same reasoning when their guy practices the opposite of what he preaches would be puzzling if not for the blind and unwavering loyalty he demands of his strident followers...

One question. Why would republicans care about white house tours anyway, what with a muslim marxist bent on destroying the country being the occupant and all? You'd think they'd want people to stay away from that evil place, especially the "children".

When the premise is dumb, any argumentative responses would equally be so...
