Obama: 57 Vacation Days Since Vowing He 'Will Not Rest Until Anyone' Can Find A GOOD Job

February 12, 2013
Unemployment still stands at 7.9 percent, actually higher than when he took office in 2009.

It's time for the State of the Union address, which means the president is pivoting back to jobs once more. It's an annual game where President Obama pretends to be focused on employment and many in the media pretend to believe him.

Back in 2009, the president promised never to "rest" until the job situation was fixed. Nearly four years later, he's done a lot of resting.

According to The Weekly Standard, Pres. Obama has had 83 vacation days overall and Factcheck.org says he took 26 of those in 2009. That means the president has taken at least 57 vacation days since his vow not to "rest."

Context...

George W. Bush had spent 180 days at his ranch where his staff often joined him for meetings.

Ronald Reagan had taken 112 vacation days at his ranch.

Among recent presidents, Bill Clinton took the least time off -- 28 days.

If Obama was not at a fund raiser with rich white folk begging for money, he was on the golf course.

On the fateful night of the Benghazi terrorist attack, he was no where to be found. Then he shows up in Los Angeles and Denver the next 3 days playing golf twice and attending 5 different fund raisers.

Our country just underwent a terrorist attack. His priority at that time was to play golf and raise money - and lie to the US citizens about the terrorist attack.

Ya well, well...What about Herbert Hoover, He took vacations and was a Drunk too!

Just because The Messiah has his beer made and paid for in the White House doesn't mean nuthin!

Ya, and Bush was reading a book to children as an Honorable Man when the guy that Willy "Cigar" Clinton did not kill when he had the chance, bombed the Pentagon and Trade Center.

Barry was reading books too when "Hillary the Benghazi Bomber" told us that the Buck stops with her. Jay Z and Beyonce' have as much right as any other American Children to be read to by Our Messiah!

Ya, that's it!

Bush was reading a Book, Hoover was a Vacationing Drunk, and you are picking on Our Messiah because he is Black!

Buuuurp

Michele Bachmann, Allen West, and Paul Ryan is in the same boat as Marco Rubio. Fake conservatives who whine about socialism without a hint of irony.... considering that all of them have spent their entire adult lives collecting government checks.

You Fauching Idiot,

George Washington had a vacation...

You Fauching Idiot, will you ever grow enough emotionally or intellectually to realize that your Childish Defense of your Despicable Messiah is not found in your childish, regular, and stupid response that you feel applies to EVERY fauching stupid post you write?

"Ya well what about your guy"

Why do you choose to be so meaningless in your existance?

A clue for you Retard, What your neighbor or anyone else did or did not do has nothing to do with what you do.....

This principal applies to the Scumbags like Barry and his Co-Communist Tyrants, that you in the 20% who were purchased by them, think you are defending because somebody else did something that in your sick mind you can "equate" to the scum you feel you are defending.

Now, go to the light and end Our Misery! Start your eternity in Pain with your Savior Beelzebub!
