3 Things for Obama to Do on Vacation
Townhall.com ^ | September 2, 2013 | Katie Kieffer

Posted on 09/02/2013 4:24:02 AM PDT by Kaslin

(I) took vacations. Bush took vacations. Obama LOVES taking vacations. It would not be so annoying to watch Obama vacation if it did not seem like he’s always vacationing—even when he’s supposed to be working. We are still waiting for Obama’s “big recovery” to recover the jobs and wealth we lost during the recession. (The average American has yet to recover 55 percent of their household wealth since the recession.) For all we know, when he is not vacationing, he is imbibing cold beer and smoking e-cigarettes while the rest of us work our tails off.

Dear Mr. President: The next time you decide you need a rest from all the rest you already seem to get on-the-job, here are three friendly suggestions for how you could enjoy your time off:

1.) If you must to go on vacation, take a hunting trip. You don’t even need to hunt. Have some beef jerky. Play cards at night. Eat eggs, bacon and pancakes with fresh maple syrup and then watch the sun rise from the comfort of a tree stand in the morning. Relax and sip hot coffee from your thermos while you listen to hunters give you a lesson on how to safely clean and store your firearm.

You would benefit from spending time around responsible gun-owners. I think you would quickly realize why you need to start defending the Second Amendment: Guns save lives whereas your executive orders that unconstitutionally regulate firearms simply make it easier for criminals to prey on the vulnerable.

2.) Spend a sunny afternoon during your vacation sitting alone by a quiet stream or a bubbling brook. If you sit there long enough, you will learn a valuable leadership lesson on being flexible and listening to the marketplace. I recently heard a powerful speech by Jill Johnson, president and founder of Johnson Consulting Services. Johnson shared how, as a teenager, she had a "wake up call" when she spent a few hours sitting by a rushing stream. As she watched, it struck her that the water succeeded in reaching its destination by being flexible. Every time the water encountered a barrier such as a large rock or a fallen tree branch in the middle of the stream's path, the water simply moved around the barrier. The water did not try to "change" the rock or the stick; it adjusted its course and flowed around the barrier without missing a beat.

Mr. President, I think that if you sit by a stream and watch how successful the water is—because it is flexible—you too will realize that to be a strong leader and to put our country's economy on the path to job creation you must be nimble. You have spent nearly five years chipping away at a metaphorical rock, trying to change our country—which was founded on freedom, entrepreneurship and faith—into a socialist and secular country.

Your stubbornness in redistributing wealth is getting us nowhere. Your persistence in keeping America's corporate tax rate as the highest among G20 economies is not creating jobs. It’s time for you to humble yourself, become flexible and exhibit a virtue that you tell us we need to exhibit: "The courage to change."

3.) Visit a free country where adults are not treated like babies. Whether you visit a remote island or take a rocket ship to an undiscovered planet, you need to experience how peaceful and happy people become when their government respects their God-given, natural rights and freedom.

The Constitution did not make you the commander-in-chief of cradles. Your job is not to walk around with a basketful of blankies, pacifiers and warm bottles to make us feel safe and comforted. We don’t need you to burp us. We don’t need you to hold our hand when we cross the street. We don’t need you to tuck us in at night and read us a bedtime story. We need you to enforce the law of the land and leave us free to live the way our Maker and our country’s founders intended for us to live: Freely.

P.S. Be sure to send a postcard from your next vacation!

Possible alternate for number 4...

Use one (not 4) airplanes to get you, your wife, your kids, and your dogs to your destination.

Like Congress, Obama is becoming VERY rich,
from foreigners, from the MB/alQaeda,
from payoffs, from kickbacks,
and by SELLING America short since he/they know
their “laws” (which are not for them or their staff)
will destroy the American people.

Go hunting with clothing that looks exactly like the game you are after. The outcome might be celebrated by millions.

Here’s my vacation wish list for Obama:

1) Go cave diving. Put on some scuba gear and swim as far up in a submerged cave as you can go.

2) Go BASE jumping. You’d really enjoy jumping off a building that is barely tall enough for your chute to deploy.

3) Get some spirituality and take the gospel (or the koran) to some cannibals.

Three things Obama wants to do on his vacation:

1. Get away from the family and the bustle and hubbub that is Martha’s Vineyard.

2. Find a boyfriend and an easy source for weed.

3. Find seclusion, forget the pressures of the difficult assignment of destroying America. Don’t forget to have the CIA dispose of your boy toy before rejoining the family and the pressures of being president.

How about:

1. Admit failure to rescue the economy.
2. Resign and vacate the White House.
3. Vow never again to discuss or participate in American politics.

The suggestions seem worthy to me, though I’ve to confess I don’t care what President You Didn’t Build That does. The single best thing he could do would be to spend the rest of his term on vacation. No president at all would be a vast improvement upon him.

This one made me laugh just thinking about the response it would draw from the Kos Kiddies. They'd be piled on their fainting couches ten deep! Bwuhahahaha! (Mine is an evil laugh).

Allow the House to take a look at the list of those thousands of “guests” you take with as a reward for their contribution to your constant campaigning.

#4). Take a solo tour of Leavenworth Penitentiary. Use the route with the doors that close automatically behind you.

Can you help me here? About two weeks ago, Major (should be Private) Garrett said that Pres. G.W. Bush took more vacations than Pres. Obama. Is that true? I also assume that most of Bush’s vacations were taken at his home in Crawford or Camp David - not phony magnets like Martha’s Vineyard or the Hamptons.

Does Duh-1 still have that place in the Windy City, or is he an itinerant worker?

Go to the G-20 meeting in St. Petersburg and turn yourself into Vlad as an illegal alien and war criminal.

2A rights are not about hunting. Obama needs to feel what life is like in the worst neighborhood in DC without any security guards.

Pretty lame article, stupid premise.

President Bush also worked on his vacations at his ranch and I am not talking about cutting brush. He also worked when he went to Camp David. That arrogant, lazy, lying pos doesn’t know the meaning of the word work

I’d like him to spend time with people who lived under Communism. Whether from Cuba or Vietnam or Eastern Europe. It (theoretically) could open his eyes.

He’s atypical American leftist who’s always had everything America offers and always not only taken it for granted, but clearly resented it. That mindset firmly believes the ONLY thing wrong with Communism is that it just hasn’t been “done right.” IF ONLY it were “done right” we’d all enjoy Utopia.
