Obama Flips Off America: POTUS Goes on His Luxury 10-Day Vacation at Martha’s Vineyard, Despite Nation’s Horrible Economy & Job Losses (video)
Posted By Vicki McClure Davidson on August 19, 2011
Barack Obama is a stubborn, self-absorbed man and he doesn’t care what anyone else thinks as long as he gets his way. When he’s dead set on something — like catering to his own Marxist agenda and not that of America’s, or willfully spending taxpayer money we don’t have on expensive pet projects and liberal entitlement programs — Pres. Obama is pretty comfortable with flashing a smile and giving the rest of the nation the middle finger.
Things have gone from bad to worst in a relatively short period of time, not only for America’s credit rating, loss of jobs, and the unstable stock market, but for the president’s approval with the voting public.
When the Congressional Black Caucus and Rep. Maxine Waters are royally angry at POTUS for his lackluster efforts on jobs and black issues — when Mitt Romney, of all people, tries to convince Mr. Hopenchange that taking a poshy 10-day vacation right now at Martha’s Vineyard during the worst economic and jobs crisis we’ve had in more than three decades is a horrible idea — Pres. Obama cheerfully flips America off. Once again.
Even Gene Simmons of KISS, who admits he voted for the Community Organizer in Chief, has lambasted him, calling Obama “unqualified,” and predicted this week that Rick Perry would be the next President of the United States.
During Obama’s controversial Magical Misery Tour this past week, it was noted by many that he avoided speaking in predominantly black communities and focused on white communities in the swing states of Iowa, Illinois, and Minnesota. Obama also hosted an elegant black tie dinner affair at the White House last week for Iftar, the third such dinner he has hosted since being in office and less than a week after Navy SEALs Team 6 were killed in the bloodiest, deadliest attack by Muslims against Americans since the 9/11 attacks. How many Christian-honoring or Jewish-honoring or Buddhist-honoring black tie dinners has he hosted?
Pam Geller at Atlas Shrugs writes:
Obama hosted a huge black-tie affair last night (his third) for Iftar. Imagine this, fresh on the heels of the jihadi attack last Friday, resulting in the biggest single largest loss of life for America since the 911 war began. So many Americans ambushed and killed at the hands of the devout in the war against jihad. Ghoulish.
This from the Puff Ho, who is absolutely glowing.
President Obama honored the sacrifices that Muslim Americans have made for the country on Wednesday night at the White House’s annual Ramadan dinner. With only a month to go before the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Obama emphasized the role that Muslim Americans played in the wake of the attacks, and their contributions to the war efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“Muslim Americans were [the] first responders … the EMTs … the nurse who tended to so many victims, the naval officer at the Pentagon who rushed into the flames and pulled the injured to safety,” the president told approximately 100 guests before the meal.
I’ve not seen the stats or a list on who were the first responders during the 9/11 massacre — were they all Muslims? Obama’s speech indicates that is indeed the case. Or how he’s chosen to revise historical events. It could go either way, considering Dear Leader’s propensity for skewing facts.
Home run hit here — this essay from Patrick J. Buchanan at World Net Daily, The view from Martha’s Vineyard:
As he and his daughters bicycle around the summer playground of the Northeastern elite, Martha’s Vineyard, President Obama is steadily bleeding away both the support of the nation and that of his most loyal constituency.
Several times, his approval rating in Gallup’s daily tracking poll has sunk to 39 percent, with disapproval reaching 54 percent. Support for his handling of the economy has dipped to the mid-20s. Only 11 percent of Americans, says Gallup, are satisfied with the way things are going.
Unemployment remains at 9 percent, as it has for two years. The Dow has lately lost 2,000 points, or $3 trillion in wealth wiped out. All that money the Fed pumped out is now being reflected not only in the price of gold, silver and Swiss francs, but in rising consumer prices – inflation. One in five U.S. children is living in poverty.
Middle America, some time ago, decided the “hopey, changey thing” was not working out for them. Now the patience of African-Americans with a president for whom they voted 24 to one is wearing thin.
At a Black Caucus confab in Detroit, Rep. Maxine Waters told an angry audience that if and when Black America demands that they confront Obama, the caucus is ready “to have the conversation.”

Nile Gardiner at The Telegraph also weighs in — Barack Obama’s Martha’s Vineyard vacation looks like an act of presidential hara-kiri:
President Obama begins his 10-day vacation in Martha’s Vineyard today, the third year in a row he has taken his summer holiday in one of America’s most expensive resorts. During his time there he will be experiencing the kind of luxury that the vast majority of ordinary Americans can only dream about: Barack Obama will be staying in a compound which costs more to rent for a single week than most American households earn in a year.
In previous years Obama’s expensive vacations have attracted relatively little attention from the US media, with the exception of Michelle Obama’s trip to southern Spain last August, which led to her being dubbed a “modern-day Marie Antoinette” by one columnist. This year, however, even some flagships of the liberal mainstream media have been raising eyebrows. The Washington Post’s coverage for example has been unusually critical, for a publication that usually shies away from making an issue out what it would traditionally view as the president’s private life:
With 14 million Americans out of work, a volatile stock market and a historic downgrade of the country’s credit rating, President Obama is set to begin a 10-day retreat Thursday at a 28-acre Martha’s Vineyard compound called Blue Heron Farm, which costs an estimated $50,000 per week to rent. That divide — and the presumed hypocrisy of a president who has pledged not to rest “until every American looking for a job can find one,” going golfing and biking on an island playground for wealthy celebrities — has been too much for political pundits to resist.
Obama’s decision to head to a popular playground for wealthy elites in the face of intense media scrutiny is a surprisingly reckless move. It is a particularly foolish act just 14 months away from a presidential election where he will likely end up the underdog rather than the favourite. The contrast between an imperious, out-of-touch US president and the economic plight of tens of millions of Americans could not be starker. Obama’s holiday will no doubt come to haunt him in November next year, with the economy the number one issue for voters.
The bloom is off the rose when socialist Rep. Maxine Waters is loudly bailing on Obama — Rep. John Conyers is also on the Socialists in Congress list.
From Jeff Dunetz at Big Government, RACISTS! The Congressional Black Caucus Bashes President Obama:
Speaking at a town hall in Detroit Michigan, Members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC)and the mostly African-American audience criticized President Barack Obama for his lousy showing on jobs and for his political bus tour making campaign stops in predominantly Caucasian neighborhoods.
California Rep. Maxine Waters tried to explain to the attendees that she and other members of the Black Caucus that she and her fellow CBC members had to walk a fine line because many in the communities they represent had great love for President Barack Obama, it can be anywhere from difficult to impossible for Waters and the other members to be as critical of the president as she wanted to be. An obvious racist reference to the fact the President’s mother was Caucasian.
From Maggie’s Notebook, Congressional Black Caucus Jobs Fair – Maxine Waters Unleashed and Ready to Go After Obama Video:
The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) sponsored the “For the People Jobs Fair” in Detroit. Anyone want to guess what that cost the American taxpayer? In the video below Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Congressman John Conyers (D-MI) listen to an angry crowd demanding jobs. The ethically-challenged Waters tells the crowd when they tell her it’s “all right,” and when they “unleash” her, they (CBC) is “ready to have the conversation.” “When you tell us it’s time to let go, we’ll let go.” They are not her constituents, but never mind. Stay with the video because Maxine-clips are shown throughout, and she gives her voters a caution: Obama is the first Black president in United State history, and if we go after him, they will come after us (“they” meaning anyone not Black will come after Blacks?). Conyers is demanding a meeting with Obama. Maybe he will get a paid trip to Martha’s Vineyard.

Have a nice vacation, Mr. President.
