Full title: Obama accused of 'double standards' as family go skiing just days after telling Americans to sacrifice their own holidays (shortenend to fit within word limit)
President Obama has been accused of having double standards after appealing for Americans to sacrifice their holidays just days before his wife and children went on a costly skiing trip.
First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha are said to be on a 'private family trip' to Colorado for Presidents' Day Weekend...
Although the Obamas will pay for a portion of the skiing trip, taxpayers will still shoulder many of the costs.
'I don't know whether to laugh or cry,' said one of the president's most outspoken critics, conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. 'He's got the single largest deficit in the history of the country and he's trying to tell us that we really cut back here.'

Nah, that would be fattening.
That photo pose is still der Fuehrer’s best Mussolini pose.
FUBO & FAD
Probably right. However, we have a President telling Americans “we have to make sacrifices, forego that vacation, not eat out for dinner, etc”. While he and his family never blink an eye at jaunting off for vacation. Bush if you remember spent xmas holidays at camp david so the agents and others who protect the pres, could spend it with their own families.
Not this Pres. Tell me what has he sacrificed for this country? Has he cut back on the 28 balls he has held at Christmas in lieu of the deficit, the unemployed, people losing their homes, not being able to afford presents?
I want a President to “sacrifice” and “walk with us” during our hardships. Mr. Obama has not sacrificed for his country....
And yet they won’t go to church because it creates too much chaos.
That's fine. Of course, that then means that the only people who will be able to run for and actually function as President will be the mega-wealthy - the Romneys, the Trumps, etc, etc. Not exactly what I want or what I think would be good for the country, but I certainly understand your position, now.
Response: No he is not being inconsistent. Those who charge him with inconsistency either do not know American history or because of the current rules regarding Political Correctness ignore or are afraid to report the truth.
Could it be O’s lover boy, Regie Love?
While Moochelle away, wonder what Barry is going to do, play basket ball?
Since many of us feel Barry is a Muslim..just wonder if O has mulitiple wives or at least one or two on the back burner?
So you fail to point out the hypocrisy of our current President to ‘sacrifice and forego vacations and dinners out” while he fails to do the same.
Presidents do take vacations, I have no problem with that. But this President smacks all of us in the face during one of the of most critical financial times in our history(next to the depression).
If he said, we are foregoing vactions, or cutting back vacations out of respect for Americans who are going through difficult times, he would get my praise. But he has failed to do so....
I don’t recall Bush asking folks to forego vacations, dinners out, etc during hard-times. Most of his vacations were at the Ranch, where he also worked as President. he also gave up Golf during the war.
Name one thing Obama has sacrificed for Americans citizens and the debt of this country?
“The unfortunate older girl in the picture looks just like daddy.”
The more unfortunate younger girl in the picture looks just like mommy.

Had an analogous thing like that happen to me. In my old job, my manager, a liberal democrat gave me a rash of $h!t when I wanted to take two weeks off. He was against me taking two weeks and even didn’t like it when I took a week. I was told that he preferred me to take a day here and a day there. Of course the @$$hole took two weeks and went to Cape Cod.
Hypocrisy is their middle name. Do as I say and not as I do !
> Imagine the attacks from the liberal media if the Bush family had vacationed like the Obamas do.
As yet unmentioned? What is the Carbon Footprint of this trip?
Now you are just fishing for something that makes sense but this is NOT it
“Of course, that then means that the only people who will be able to run for and actually function as President will be the mega-wealthy “
Why? Who said a POTUS after he tells us all to sacrifice and not go on vacation MUST let his pos wife go?
You were the one telling us how great it is for 0dumbo to make 400k so let 0dumbo pay for his wife’s vacation. not me
seriously top digging.
this thread is about the POS 0dumbo and his wife for telling us we have to cut back and then rubbing their lack of concern for the American people in our faces by jetting off to expensive vacations and charging us.
But, I will point out simple hypocrisy when it presents itself.
Didn't take him long to forget that post did it? LOL
Yeah, I'll bet they MAY HAVE paid for their own skiing outfits but WE TAXPAYERS paid for everything else. And I hope we aren't subjected to any pictures of MO on the ski lift. (shudder)
Rooms start at $650 - $2,400 a night.
I don't recall referring it to as a "scam."
As should be patently obvious to even a casual observer, Obama is a creature to whom image is everything. His careful crafting of himself as a messiah is the essence of the arrogant SOB. When it comes to image, nothing happens by accident with him.
He figuratively and literally extends his middle finger to his great unwashed detractors at every opportunity.
Rather than remove themselves to safety during the London blitz in WWII, the British royal family chose to stay in London and thus earned the undying respect of the Brits.
This classless Great Mistake doesn't even rise to the level of a loyal family dog.
President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle are set to stay at Buckingham Palace when they visit the UK later this year.
The Queen will host the Obamas when they make an official state visit to Britain from May 24 to May 26.
The Queen’s press secretary confirmed the news to UsMagazine.com.
It will be the first state visit to the UK from an American president since George W.Bush visited eight years ago in 2003.
Michelle Obama recently admitted on US show Live! With Regis and Kelly that she is set to receive an invite to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding later this year.
Does anyone really listen to anything these arrogant nobama grifters say about anything????? Less than 2 years until these America-hating, American-hating, Freedom-hating equal opportunity grifters are sent packing. The nobama family makes me vomit.
