Obama demonstrates his limousine liberal side in Hawaii
Republican Liberty Caucus ^ | 12/23/2008 | Publicola

Posted on 12/23/2008 9:39:26 AM PST by obamaisandrogynous

President-elect Barack Obama’s vacation in Hawaii at $9 million mansion demonstrates his limousine liberal side — just a week after he called for “new ethics” on Wall Street, which he has condemned for “greed” for and luxury living while the rest of the U.S. is grinding through a recession.

The economic downturn, moreover, Obama recently told reporters, “is going to get worse.” As far as the President-elect is concerned, however, these economic realities for regular folks don’t apply to him.

Obama, his wife, and his children, as well as leftist apparatchiks, have rented three mansions on the beach in Hawaii. The former law professor posed for photos on the beach, shirtless, according to television news reports.

Obama’s been eating a local version of sushi, with spam substituted for fish. Apparently, this feast on spam is intended to show Obama’s regular guy persona, and, though he is a graduate of Harvard Law School, and Columbia University, he is not an “elitist.”

At least that was the narrative that the press, covering Obama’s sojourn, during the first day of his trip. Remember, Obama is expected to call for “sacrifice” during his inaugural speech next month in Washington D.C. , and, it has been reported, he will take his oath of office on a bible once owned by Abraham Lincoln.

Of course he’s not elitist, he eats spam. I wonder if the White House chef will have to learn how to make spam sushi for White House dinners? *snicker*

This story is revealing on two fronts:
—It does show Obama’s elitism and poor judgement (living it up in a time of national economic difficulty)
—It shows (once again) how in love the media are with Obama. The media are so proud that their guy is vacationing in luxury.

Both (Obama and the media) are pathetic.

Why is he even taking a vacation at this time in the first place?

He only has about two months to prepare his new cabinet and make the transition, should he not be focused on that?

He did not go to his own Grandmother's funeral, as I recall (someone correct me if I am wrong on that point), yet he has time now to go swimming in Hawaii?

Spam musubi is a farorite in Hawaii. He probably missed it from his youth there ... not that he’s trying to slum it.

These reporters are don’t do their homework, but it doesn’t matter, they are too dumb anyway.

Sort of like the fat person chowing down at the AYCE buffet but ordering a diet Coke.

Hey, look, it’s payback time,baby, and reparations are hell. So we’ll just have to get used to it. Next thing you know, BHO will staff the entire White House with caucasion servants,cooks, butlers, wait staff, chauffeurs, and maids.

Isn’t this fun?

Spam is a huge dish in Hawaii. Nothing gay about that.

My dad was in the army and eats spam and eggs all the time. That came from being stationed out there.

Not that he doesn’t have reason to appear to be gay many many other times a day, just not for spam.

“elitism and poor judgement”
And the MSM was all over the big 3 auto CEOs for coming to D.C. on private jets paid by corperate money. Do you think
Barack’s vacation was paid for by tax payers’ dollars (certainly his security escort was), or financed by lobbyist? No change here!!!

I don't know cuisine. I'm the kind of batchelor who likes Roast Beef Hash and fake eggs, scrambled. I even like fried SPAM sandwiches. But I saw a TV program where Alton Brown explained why the Hawaiians like SPAM. Alton is a food god don'tchaknow. ;-)

Photoshopped?

I love how the MSM are doing the side-by with Putin’s bares chested pics. An obvious message to Vladi? More a lame attempt to convince the world’s sheep that 0 is on the same level as Putin. 0 is a poser; Putin is the real deal.

I mean, come on; we are talking KGB vs Acorn for goonness sakes!

I found these pics of Putin at play.

“Do you think Barack’s vacation was paid for by tax payers’ dollars (certainly his security escort was), or financed by lobbyist? No change here!!!”

1. If one could ever truly follow the money back to its source, this boondoggle likely was bankrolled by Tony Rezko. If this were ever demonstrated, BHO would issue an apology for his “bone-headed mistake” and MSM would quickly give him a pass.

2. Spending $8,000+ daily on a vacation should in no way be construed as greedy. Remember, corporate executives only care about themselves, but Obama cares about “the people.”
Besides, spending money will help boost the economy.

3. None of us should get upset about this: by the time BHO is done “spreading the wealth” we ALL will be able to bankroll 12 day vacations in Hawaii!

You are right about the “priorities” thing.

Remember 0’s ads telling us to “take the day off work to go vote?”

I got up a couple of hours early, drove to the polls, waited in line and voted on my way to being on time for work at 7:00 AM on election day.

My priorities are all wrong. (/s)
