Happy Memorial Day Barack (its hard work to be president)

This Memorial Day, the President has decided to break with tradition.  Yep, the change agent has decided to take a powder on paying his respects to our men and women in the military by visiting Arlington Cemetery. 

Yo, the Hip-Pop Prez & his family are heading for Chi-Town to kick off the summer this Memorial Day Weekend.  Yes indeed, the community organizer from the Southside of Chicago is heading back to Chi-Town.  He & the first family will arrive on Thursday night where they will visit with friends and participate in private events.   And to show his support for our military, he’ll remain in the Southside of Chi-Town and take 15 minutes to make a few remarks at the nearby Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery.

I mean, visiting Arlington Cemetery on Memorial Day would be so much like all those other Presidents on the dollar bills….you know – the ones that Candidate Obama continually reminded us that he [doesn’t] look like?  Wink,wink.

I mean it’s not like we’re in 2 wars, have serious illegal immigration issues, or experiencing one of the worst economic recessions & most catastrophic oil spills in our nation’s history in the gulf of Mexico…..etc, etc.  

 

Happy Memorial Day.   

Grab a smoke, have a martini, sit back, relax & enjoy the BBQ – cuz Barack has everything under control!

Life is goin’ great for the 1st Family.

So it’s all good…..right?

  1. Both Bushs and Reagan spent more time on vacation than Obama. Clinton and Carter spent less.

    You just like to complain.

  2. Ya you got me Ben….I like to complain when it’s Memorial Day weekend, we’re in 2 wars, have serious illegal immigrations issues, are experiencing one of the worst economic recessions & most catastrophic oil spills in our nation’s history – and the POTUS decides to take the family for a 5 day vacation to Chicago.

    You might want to check your pulse if that doesn’t make you feel like complaining too.

  3. Oh jesus, When are the Obots going to stop comparing Obama to Bush? They need to take a good look at what is happening and at their Mess-iah. They were bamboozled and they just can’t face it. Grow the fuck up.

  4. Excellent post and right on target !!

  5. [we’re in 2 wars, have serious illegal immigrations issues, are experiencing one of the worst economic recessions & most catastrophic oil spills in our nation’s history – and the POTUS decides to take the family for a 5 day vacation to Chicago.]

    Well, Bush’s wars have been going on for 7 & 9 years, immigration problems have been festering for decades, Bush’s recession is finally starting to lift. The oil disaster is the result of the Bush administration’s corrupt relationship with the oil companies and rendering impotent the MMS and we’re at the mercy of the oil companies to fix it.

    The country is a mess, but Obama going on vacation isn’t going to change anything.

  6. Obama spent more time on golf courses his first year than Duhbya spent in his eight.

  7. There we go with the Bush crap. Get off the fucking soap box and take a good look at what is happening. Stop listening to what he says and look at what he does. Stop making excuses for him. Comparing him to Bush is just pathetic.

  8. Ben,

    Obama is president now, not bush. When is he ever going to take responsibility for his “superior judgment”?

    Obama has the balls to ask already hurting Americans to make even greater sacrifices, while millions are unemployed or underemployed, losing their homes and worrying if they will be able to feed their families.

    Don’t you think he should lead by example and do a little of what he’s asking us to do? He never deprives himself of anything.

    He should have gone down to Louisiana on “day one”, instead of doing what he always done in a crisis, not be a decisive leader, but taking a “wait and see attitude on how the political winds will blow” before he is pressured to at least come out and speak harshly about BP’s criminal negligence. All the while, our Gulf Coast and eco-system and millions of people’s livihoods are being destroyed and our economy goes further into cardiac arrest.

    That’s not leadership and it sure as hell isn’t presidential. And, it has nothing to do with bush.

  9. Ben. We get it, you have a man-crush on Obama…and are the poster boy for the phrase “love is blind.”

  10. Can’t find the answer…Have All presidents ALWAYS celebrated Memorial day by going to Arlington or some other place to honor the military?
