President-elect Barack Obamas 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 dont 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.
Obamas been eating a local version of sushi, with spam substituted for fish. Apparently, this feast on spam is intended to show Obamas 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 Obamas 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.

The golfing socialist. Wonder if he plays equal outcome golf?
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*
Yeah...we’ll all be eating spam soon....
So, he’s not clearing brush then?
I would have guessed th Kornut owned by Jefferson
Imagine how the press would react if Bush had done this. It’s easy if you try...
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.
African “Big Man” complex.
Doesn’t spam have ham in it?
Now the Muslims are going to be upset. Who isn’t upset with him?
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 is definitely not Halal./Just Asking - seoul62......
It is kosher Spam, oh wait that doesn’t work either
Barry the Obamagod is going to grow rich off of the cult he has started. He has really come uppity in the world.
Looks like a pack of Kool Menthols in his hand....
Did Sarah Palin gun down that spam? She has to be involved in the death of this animal - Sarah the Spam Slayer...
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.
Where's the Hope, brother?
“a pack of Kool Menthols in his hand”
I heard he smoked Newport menthol. (BTW, Kools only come in Menthol)
Now come on!! Nothing is too good for “The One”. He needed to be out there to select the sight of the new Temple of The One.
Spam shushi? When I first read oit I thought it said scam sushi.
oit should be it
Sort of like the fat person chowing down at the AYCE buffet but ordering a diet Coke.
Obamas been eating a local version of sushi, with spam substituted for fish.
I won't say this often, but that is just plain gay, the mystery meat in place of fish, VERY GAY!
Michelle will be the biggest “mov’in on up” spender Washington DC has seen....out doing even Maxine Waters and Barbara Boxer.
It’s a package of golf balls. He ain’t THAT stupid.
SPAM is considered ‘haute cuisine’ in Hawaii. Really.
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?
Looks more like a pack of Salem along with a lighter.:)
It won't endear him to PETA or pigs, either.
I always thought moldable meat was haute, and I feel gay just saying that.
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!!!
This is our first Affirmative Action President, you can’t really expect to get it all right; stuff like this takes practice...
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 Baracks 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!
“Yeah...well all be eating spam soon....”
AHA!!! So it must be Hormel Spam money behind Obama not Soros, or Auchi. I should have known. ;)
(It’s a joke people...)
but spam sushi is gay....
It is all about priorities, don’t you know that?
Clearly golfing and swimming ranks higher than going to his Grandmothers funeral.
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)
I wasn’t aware he had another side.
So how come he can rent mansions in Hawaii, but wants to live (rent free) in Blair house early? Be a sport, Barry, rent a house in DC too!!!
Its spam musubi, its very local style, and it has no sexual connotation. They even serve it at KBay...to Marines.
