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)
