President Obama: rolling up his sleeves for America's middle class
Yet again it is the British press doing the job the American mainstream media chooses not to. The Telegraph has a story (prominently headlined on the highly influential Drudge Report) about the US presidents dog Bo, being specially airlifted to the exclusive Massachusetts resort of Marthas Vineyard to join the First Family for their summer vacation. As The Telegraphs Nick Allen reports:
Rooms have to be found for dozens of Secret Service agents, someone has to carry a selection of presidential basketballs, and of course the family dog needs his own state-of-the-art aircraft.
Arriving in the idyllic coastal retreat of Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, Mr Obama left behind him in Washington DC high profile debates over the budget, government surveillance and his health care reforms. Instead, he will spend the next eight days playing golf, going to the beach, and buying books from the Bunch of Grapes bookstore.
Bo, the president's Portuguese Water Dog, arrived separately on one of two MV-22 Ospreys, a hybrid aircraft which takes off like a helicopter but flies like a plane. It was the first time the Ospreys have been taken on holiday by a US president.
As Allen notes, the Obamas are staying in a 5,000 acre $7.6 million retreat(Continued)

All I can say is
It’s good to be the king.
The dog rides in the supply plane, along with the corn oil, drop cloths, and Reggie Love.
Every day he’s not in Washington is a good day for the US.
Obumer was playing golf yesterday, he plays like a drag queen. What a poofter...don´t tell me the One does not take it up the @rse. I guees the name OBUMER says it all.
Actually he makes most drag queens look butch.
You must not forget that doggies are ‘unclean’ to muslims and doggies don’t much like them either.
Of course this isn’t the first time the dog has arrived by separate plane. They did the same thing last year. There was a hue and cry over it, but we see that this year they did it again. Obama loves to rub our noses in his arrogance.
Not sure why the dog needs to come. Most Americans leave their dog in the kennel or with a dog sitter when they travel due to inconvenience. It’s hard to go out to a lot of places with a dog along.
I realize many people do travel with a dog but I think that number is far outweighed by ones that leave the dog at home. Plus flying an animal usually puts the kibosh on that idea.
I realize the boy king doesn’t pay out of pocket but just why is the dog necessary everywhere they go?
Re: the dog arriving via a separate plane. . .
But, enough about Moochelle. . . . (evil grin)
$1.4 BILLION is the current annual cost of the White House just in household expenses, not including US policy operations for which the WH exists-- administered by some 900 parasites--- policy staff recruited by Ohaha.
Ohaha vacations cost taxpayers millions---- (the low estimate for Ohaha's Hawaii vacay was $4 million, but the true cost is probably five times that); the first familys yearly health-care costs are $7 million; more than $6 million is spent on the White House grounds each year. Transportation costs were a staggering $346 million last year.
The O' kids were flying aroound to the Bahamas and Sun Valley.....while US kids were shut out of the WH supposedly due to sequestration Secret Service cutbacks. The O's galivanting teen daughter was spotted in NY---with girlfriends---dining at the pricey Buddakan, scoffing up rock shrimp, edamame dumplings, short ribs, lobster fried rice........replete w/ five Secret Service guards dining nearby, while students her age were denied access to the people's house.
Mrs O wore her pricey diamond bangles (bought on a govt salary?)at a DNC fund-raiser, attended by "tolerant and compassionate" Dems....raised big bucks to keep Mr O in office so he could work for "the poor." Her diamond Gothic cuff was priced at $15,350 set with 2.17 carats in diamonds and the Quatrefoil bracelet at $11,800 set with 1.73 carats in diamonds. (Excerpt) Read more at houston.culturemap.com

THE OBAMA ADMIN APPROVES $50 MILLION DOLLARS IN FOREIGN AID TO KENYA.
O'S HALF BRO (has 12 wives) IS READY TO CASH IN---RUNS THE TAX-EXEMPT "DO-GOOD IN KENYA" OBAMA FOUNDATION----NAMED FOR DEAR OLD DAD The tax- exempt charity named in honor of their Dad, is run by President Barack Obamas half-brother Malik.
The tax-exempt Obama foundation, fast-tracked by Lerner for IRS tax-exempt status, is based at a Virginia UPS store, according to its website. The organizations IRS filings list another Virginia address that is actually a drug rehab center where the foundation does not appear ever to have been based.
As first reported by The Daily Caller, the foundation was speedily approved for IRS exemption by Lois Lerner, the self-same IRS senior official at the center of the targeting of conservative organizations that have waited over two years to receive tax exempt status. The IRS thoughtfully gave Obama Foundation retroactive fund-raising status.......which it stupidly never applied for.
The tax-exempt Barack H. Obama Foundation is run by Abongo Roy Malik Obama, the half-brother of Barack Obama. The foundations mission statement is to provide people everywhere with resources to uplift their welfare and living standards in memory of dad---Barack H. Obama: in the region of his birth, Kenya, and beyond. Its guiding principle is the inherent belief that no one can truly enjoy the riches he has reaped if his neighbor suffers....."We seek to elevate the human condition so that everyone can live in dignity and truly enjoy having one another as neighbors.
(same old, same old sap-happy do-goodniks)
Despite raising more than $250,000, the alleged charity doesnt seem to have done much. Its website claims the organization has built a madrassa and was building an imams house as well as some proposed latrines, but there is no other evidence that the nonprofit was working to mitigate social-shortcomings in areas of education and literacy, health and well-being, poverty, and lack of community infrastructure in such basic needs such as water, electricity, shelter and sustenance, as the site says.
Alton Ray Baysden, a former Dept of State employee, allegedly a registered Republican, who helped start the Barack H Obama foundation, declined to comment before seeing copies of a reporters passport and govt ID, along with a description of the articles motivation and slant.
Repeated reporters' phone calls went to the organizations voicemail and were not returned. ####
NOT PHOTOSHOPPED---Actual photos of O's trip to his Kenyan homeland---when Obomba was age 23-24.
2008 primary candidate Hillary had these pics but Teddy Kennedy warned the Clintons not to use them
Obama's Kenyan brother Malik holds up photo of Obombo in Muslim dress.
O w/ Kenyan aunt.
Because they can. There is no other reason.
There’s something going on here that maybe we’re missing.
What would seem to be a political blunder, that is, living like a king while there are so many suffering, is not a political blunder at all.
Obama’s constituencies, grifters and grievance mongers all, are not only living vicariously through their beloved ONE, they are reveling in the fact that vacations like this are the ultimate thumb in the eye to their oppressors. That would be us.
Yes, the Obamas are in love with the trappings of the Presidency, but they like their extravagancies to be open, overt, blatantly displayed, for all to see, and it doesn’t have to be done this way. No, there’s value in what they do.
Obama golfs and hobnobs, and we on the right go nuts. His adorers see us go nuts, and they are then allowed to participate in giving one big middle finger to their hated adversaries.
It’s Obama’s way of showing us we’re powerless to stop him. It’s what tyrants do. Obama’s first goal has always been to divide us, and these opulent vacations, and our reaction to them, serve his purpose well.
He’s a community organizer, which involves pitting the aggrieved against the powerful. Actually, with our reaction, the aggrieved become the powerful, and the powerful become the aggrieved.
Right, but, to add to the thumbing this year he became the first president to take Ospreys on holiday per the article referenced. And that’s how Bo got there.
“why is the dog necessary everywhere they go?”
It’s the only sex mooshelle gets. Surely you don’t think the faggot in chief is interested in her?
That is good. Everything he does to this Country, this Country deserves. Why? Because the voters of this Country, knowing full well what he stood for and what he is on November 6, 2012 by a majority vote , returned him to the White House. In doing that they said loud and clear, by their votes, that they preferred to be led by an individual that hated both them and America. He also hates the principals that the United States was founded upon: To Wit:}Individual freedom and responsibility. In my opinion, this individual has no scruples or principles and bad morals and bad character. And yet those who refer to themselves as Americans preferred this individual over Romney. In my opinion, Romney, for all his faults at least loved, revered, and respected America and the principles this Nation was founded upon. The current occupier of the White House does neither. And yet he is the messiah, god, lord and savior of the parasite class. In closing, before communism took such a good hold in the United States, there was no “middle class” “upper class” “underprivileged”, there were only citizens.
Is the Osprey designated “Marine First Dog One” when the dog is on board?
Pride before the fall...
Who accompained Obama on his many trips around the world at taxpayer expence ? Were they the heavy hitters or their friends holding the presidents hand ? Never looked into either by the House and certainly not even speculated about or reported on by the media. Seems like that could be considered pay back at US taxpayer expence. Isnt that an impeachable offense ? Now if somebody even suggests impeachment. What better way to discourage any investigation into malfeasance and corruption by organizing the base for riots in the streets ? Picking on some guy of mixed race doing his job and painting a target on his back.
Substitute Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe for Barack Obama and the similarities as well as the national results become obvious.
It must be that laser like focus on (killing) jobs that wears the poor man out.
Does anyone remember the press hoopla about GWB’s vacations? They screamed and Bush only went to Camp David and his ranch.
They have no problem with the O’s extravagance.
The dude going on any vacation he can afford is not “thumbing his nose at America’s middle class”, that’s lefty talk.
What I want to know is by whom, and how, are the appropriations for all of Obama’s recreational activities determined.
It seems to me that his salary of $400K ought to cover his vacations. Running the White House (chow, etc) is a reasonable separate appropriation.
But the First Family has expenses running in excess of $100 million/year, courtesy of the Republican House, and THAT is grossly unreasonable.
Does anyone know where in the Federal budget or other appropriations structure this money is located?
I don’t post photos but that reminds me of the famous “Hitler jig.”
‘The O’ kids were flying aroound to the Bahamas and Sun Valley.....while US kids were shut out of the WH supposedly due to sequestration Secret Service cutbacks”
I would no more let my kids walk around in the white hut than allow them to visit a whore house. No telling what kind of nasty sh#t they would pic up in there.
Budget? What Budget? We no need no stinkin budget!
Its not like there aren’t a thousand people in the Whitehouse that could babysit the dog for a week.
Yet Tooty-Fruity allows Reggie Love to spelunk his trunk. Strange, these Mohammedans.
