Our We don't give a damn First Family

The image is horrific: The White House is closed to little kids, the children of taxpayers, but the First Family keeps on traveling paid for by the same taxpayers.
Where is the editorial about priorities? Where is the question at the presidential news conference? Better than that, where is the Democratic US Senator calling on the "First Family" to stop it?
What would the media be saying if "the traveling president" was a Republican from Texas opposed to abortion & same sex marriage?
The point is that President Obama and family don't care because our news media has not forced them to care.
President Obama is surrounded by a bunch of people who tell him what he wants to hear and a news media in the business of hero worship rather than journalism. How else do you explain their lifestyle at a time when we are releasing illegal aliens and threatening to cut back on government services because of the sequester?
This is so "over the top" that every American should stop this week and check out Joseph Curl's article about their lavish lifestyle.
And these are the guys who ran against "rich guy Romney"?
Nobody is asking The First Family to stop enjoying life. At the same time, do they have to spend so much money when they enjoy life? Why can't take a vacation in Chicago, go to the public beach and maybe do a little 'Habitat for Humanity" on weekends? Or maybe the daughters can spend a semester at the local public high school in DC?
Why don't they set the example? Why don't they call President & Mrs Carter and learn a thing or two about humility. I am not fan of President Carter but he led by example. He may have been the last Democrat to send his daughter to a public school in DC!
They always told me growing up that people get the government that they deserve.
Well, you take "low information voters" plus a "in the tank news media" and the result is a First Family that frankly doesn't give a damn.
