While many Americans are cutting back on their vacation plans or eliminating them altogether, Barack Obama is setting an aspirational example for all of us. Sure, times are tough, but perhaps we can enjoy a life of leisure vicariously through our betters.
On July 16-18, the Obamas enjoyed their first summer vacation in beautiful Bar Harbor, Maine. The idyllic town has long been favorite summer getaway for the rich and powerful going back to the Gilded Age. Truly a resort fit for a king public servant.
Anticipating exhaustion from two long weeks in Washington, D.C., Michelle Obama is hosting her eldest daughter and several family friends on a "private vacation" to Spain, August 4-8. Staying at the luxurious Villa Padierna...

Its the usual elitist politicians of “do as I say but not as I do” crap...
Maybe this is a good thing. Maybe he’ll get to enjoying these vacations so much he’ll take a permanent one.
The list, ping
From the blog: “Barack Obama is setting an aspirational example..”
“Aspirational” isn’t a word. I think they meant “inspirational”. Unless the author was trying to be sarcastic and make a new word that implies a guy who’s ass-headed behavior he wants others to mimic because he thinks he’s being inspirational.
While he is on vacation, he is not causing more harm!
I hope he is impeached and fined for all his money and his pension cut off. Then we can sue him for every nickle he can ever earn.
Must be nice.
Wish I could do that.
Gotta keep working to feed my family.
Thing is, I enjoy working. I’d be pretty bored if I was in “vacation” mode 50% of the time or more.
Then again, what do you expect from a flaming anti-American foreign national Moslem communist, who’s never done an honest day’s work for an honest dollar, and has a chip on his shoulder the size of Mt. Everest?
This stuff is why I rather prefer that our presidents have gotten all the jet setting and money spending out of their systems. Bush was blasted for being born rich, but he didn’t treat the White House and the prerogatives of his office like a playground and didn’t jet set around the world demanding respect.
And remember that Leonid Brezhnev had a collection of cars that would make Jay Leno drool. When you are bleeding the populace for it, you can afford these things.
Where did his money come from? When did he becomea millionaire? How does one transition from total poverty to his wealth without working a day in his life?
*Aspirational* is related to breathing....sucking air;)
And on top of that, Big Mo is taking a vacation with daughter to Spain and has reserved 30 rooms at a 5 star hotel!!
Books helped but he isn’t paying a dime for these vacations. These are on you and I.
