Obama to Vacation in West Palm Beach

by Keith Koffler on February 13, 2013, 5:38 pm


Taxpayers will be sending President Obama on his second vacation of the year when he departs Friday aboard Air Force One for a Presidents’ Day Weekend excursion to West Palm Beach, Florida.

Without apparent irony, Obama has decided to jet to a well-trod stomping ground of the rich just days after presenting himself to the nation in his State of the Union speech as the guardian of the middle class.

Obama presumably will head directly to some fabulous golf course, having not been able to play in recent weeks because of the cold weather in Washington.

While Obama may pay some hotel and other miscellaneous costs related to his vacation travel, taxpayers are on the hook for much of the expense, shelling out for the president’s travel aboard Air Force One, a cargo plane that carries supplies, and the cost of the president’s substantial staff and security retinue.

While unemployment stands at nearly eight percent, Obama is taking his second vacation of 2013. The year is only six weeks old.

Obama initially traveled to Hawaii in late December. He returned after a several days to work on a fiscal cliff deal, and then went back for several more days in early January after signing a bill. So this will also be the third time in less than two months that taxpayers have footed the bill for a round-trip Obama vacation.

It’s not clear if Michelle is going with him – the White House announcement of Obama’s plans doesn’t mention her. She usually goes skiing in the Rockies around this point in the year.

Golf, gun smuggling and watching Americans die on video feed is tiring.

i think he may be pretending to vacation some, to cover up those crooked deals he making with the muslims to help bring down our beloved country.

he will be the death of many of our loved ones.
and it has nothing to do with his color.

We would be better off if he stayed on vacation and did nothing. It would be worth paying him 10 billion dollars a year salary to do nothing. We would be more prosperous.

About the only thing he can do is drift from one crisis to another. Just like the upcoming budget sequester. His party created the mess we are in and know he says letting it happen is a bad thing. Which face is he talking to us with this time, the one in front, or the one in back of his head?

He doesn't care about the mess he created with the sequester. He flew off today campaigning to get 4 year olds in preschool as if that's the most urgent thing on his agenda. You would think he would be trying to get jobs created for the parents of those 4 year olds. I think he just likes to fly around and make speeches because thats all he's good at.

The Obama administration has spent millions in taxpayer dollars to aggressively promote the government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)-- including large cash payouts to local governments that sign up the most people. In fact, one state received a $5 million bonus for “the swift processing of applications.”
Since taking office in January 2009, Obama has
been adding 11,269 food-stamp recipients per day
an astounding 49.3 percent increase, prompting
Newt Gingrich to label him the “Food Stamp
President.” Today, more than 47 million Americans are
receiving food stamps -- a number larger than the
entire population of Spain. A federal audit of SNAP revealed that many of the
47 million already receiving food stamps don’t
actually qualify but receive them anyway under
a special program that disregards income and
asset requirements. That means American taxpayers are paying what’s been called a “multi-million-dollar tab to feed hundreds of thousands who can well afford to feed themselves.” The SNAP program was designed to be a temporary safety net for individuals and families in need. Yet under Obama, it has become a bloated, fraud-filled entitlement program funded by American taxpayers. But that’s not even the worst of it. Obama is even reaching across our borders to encourage foreign nationals, migrant workers and non-citizen immigrants to apply for SNAP benefits! With our economy in shambles, and our national debt approaching $17 trillion, taxpayers can ill-afford to fund another Obama handout that last year topped out at $80.4 billion. That’s why Grassfire is launching a national petition calling for an end to taxpayer dollars being used to recruit more food-stamp recipients. We’re also urging Congress to act in the best interests of our nation and its citizens, by enacting meaningful and comprehensive SNAP reform. Go here now add your name to our national “Stop the Food-Stamp Madness” petition: www.grassfire.com/982/petition.asp
Thomas Jefferson once said that “a wise and frugal government … shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned.” But Obama, the great “wealth distributor,” is driven to use federal policy to take from the “haves” and give to the “have-nots.” Our nation was built on hard-working immigrants who came here seeking a better life. Through the sweat of their brow, these determined individuals made a better life for themselves and their families. Now generations later, Barack Obama is killing that American spirit through his statist redistribution policies. Fight back by going here now and signing Grassfire’s petition: www.grassfire.com/982/petition.asp As soon as Grassfire mobilizes 50,000 citizen signers, we'll hand-deliver these petitions to key members of Congress who are already demanding changes to the food stamp program.

Pretty simple way to deal with them, complains. Write, call or email their respective offices, let them know you are not happy about them wasting tax-payer money, and if they continue you will actively vote against them. If you feel that they are still wasting your money, then actively vote against them every two to six years. Enough of us do this, and they'll get the message pretty clear. They may love money, but they need their jobs to make money, and if their colleagues are voted out of a job they'll learn not to waste our money.

This is true and sounds good. But the problem is, there are too many low information voters who don't pay any taxes and don't much care. All they care about is their Gubmit hand-outs. Obama has seen to that.

As for that, Stray Dog, get out and inform those voters that do pay taxes. Tell you friends, family, coworkers and neighbors about important issues, and help get them out to vote. You'll find that if they have enough initiative to work and contribute to society, then they generally will get out and vote if someone spurs them on.

I admire your optimism. But I have already done that. Since early 2008 I have been very active with emails and other conversations. I have done all that I can to help turn the tide. America is in trouble, and liberalism is the problem. I don't know the solution.
