"Let them eat cake"...the famous Marie Antoinette quote, just prior to the French Revolution, when the starving peasants finally revolted and sent her and King Louis to the guillotine.
How much different are the Obama's "vacation a month" antics as they spend hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars flitting off to Hawaii or Martha's Vineyard or Spain, or Date Night in New York? Even as I write this, as tens of millions of Americans are suffering, Michelle and the two Obama girls are in the Bahamas, costing us millions in Air Force 2 flights, a huge cotillion of Secret Service agents and a huge staff to wait on them hand and foot.
Last month it was a ski vacation in Colorado, in December it was their annual trek to Hawaii.
And yet, Obama cancelled White House tours for America's school kids because "we can't afford it".
What grand sense of entitlement possesses this President? What measure of blindness and deafness to America's suffering must this man have that would cause him to flaunt the massive expenditure of tax payer dollars even as he directs that hot breakfasts for our troops in Afghanistan must stop in order to save tax dollars?
I can only conclude that it is the legacy of Obama's life that leads him to such arrogant folly! We have a man child as President, one who has sucked his entire life on the government tit, whether it was free minority scholarships to private high schools, huge taxpayer subsidies for his university education and his astute understanding of milking the tax cow as a community organizer.
Obama's sense of entitlement is no different than that welfare queen down in Tampa who bred 15 fatherless kids, with 12 still at home, who demanded the taxpayer "owed her the money" to support them. (For those liberals who claim this untrue, here's the news link, as well as the welfare queen's own testimony: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bavou_SEj1E&feature=share)
Obama simply cannot help being who he is. His old friends in Hawaii laugh when recalling a charming Obama jumping the line for an extra toke on their community joint or grabbing a "bonus snort" of cocaine. "Aw, that's just Barry", they are quoted as saying.
I have to agree as that seems to be the only explanation for Obama's flaunting an ultra-luxurious lifestyle, even as America suffers through the fifth year of a jobless recession and ever increasing tax burdens. Barry is able to charm all his kool-aid drinking supporters, "jump the line" for more than his share....and then is able to mount the public stage, put on his "empathy face" and proclaim that he "feels your pain".
One final bit of irony here, folks. In light of the $7 trillion dollars Obama added to our national debt, in light of the $10 trillion dollars Obamacare is projected to cost us, why didn't we just give Barry and Michelle their own personal Air Force One, direct deposit $100 million dollars in their personal bank account and let them say on vacation for their entire term of office. It would have been far cheaper in the long run.
And we would not have to suffer through the silent utterings of two royals who proclaim "let them eat cake!".
Failing that, we'd better start hunting up that guillotine down in the Smithsonian...we're going to need it soon if we are to save our nation.
