Don’t Blink: Obamas Plan 26-Hour Gulf “Vacation”

Ben Johnson, Floyd Reports

Michelle Obama in Spain, Not Gulf

After well-deserved public condemnation for Michelle Obama’s lavish Spanish vacation, the First Family is trying to change its image with a “vacation” to Florida’s Gulf Coast. And what an affair it is.

Mike Memoli of The Washington Post‘s blog, “The Swamp” reports: “From scheduled arrival of Air Force One Saturday to the time it departs on Sunday, the Obamas will have spent 26 hours and 50 minutes on the ground in the Panama City area.”

That does not quite compare to Michelle and the girls’ four-night sojourn in Marabella, Spain. The First Lady whisked along a small army of 40 friends, costing U.S. taxpayers $75,000 a day.

After the one-day “vacation” in the Gulf, the Obamas will leave for their real vacation: 10 days in Martha’s Vineyard.

It rather reminds me of John Kerry and John Edwards’ campaign stunt in 2004, pretending to have dinner at Wendy’s. While standing in line, Teresa Heinz did not recognize chili. And as soon as the cameras had recorded their face time with the little people, the Kerrys and Edwardses ditched the burgers and feasted on  gourmet food.

Obama is trying to pull off another “common man” moment, showing he loves spending weekends with the NASCAR enthusiasts of the panhandle.

After the brief trip, he’ll return to raising money from fat cats and special interests for the Democratic Party. He has a five-state swing through Wisconsin, California, Washington, Ohio, and Florida starting Monday. He recently gushed, “I’m pretty good at politicking.”

You couldn’t tell that by his recent poll numbers.

Maybe Michelle realizes her husband is more popular in Spain than in Panama City? Or maybe the Obamas prefer to vacation in places heavily populated by socialists (like Spain and Martha’s Vineyard) because they are more comfortable around people who think like they do.

  1. There's enough trash on the ground right now on the gulf coast, the people don't really don't care that they come and add to it anyway. It's more of a thumb their nose at them than anything else. Oh, and I guess the girls can enjoy the sights in Panama is a very cool place for kids.

  2. the losers in the white house all they do is golf and vacation or spend money .just kick the assholes out of office already.

  3. Those worthless pieces of human crap have done nothing but vacation since that trashy outfit has been in the peoples house other than when he gets a photo- op to sign one of his destruction of America Bills. Like my father used to say they are not worth the power and lead it would take to blow their brains out.

  4. Can anybody tell me just how many days, so far this year, have they been on these various vacations? I have read where both the Obama's have large entourages and persolal staffs that travel with them EVERYWHERE.

  5. This is, at most, a very feeble attempt at a "token" thrown out to appease the "little people". It''s not working! And I wonder why they have completely forsaken the Louisiana coast, which, because of Obummer's edict, is causing further damage to their economy because he won't follow 2 judges orders to lift the oil drilling ban. Oh, and never mind the fact that they spend more time vacationing than they do at the WH. November cannot come soon enough!
