What a Hypocrite. President Obama has once again proven that he has no care for what he does, or how it effects the voters.
Let's clarify this with the definition of Hypocrisy as it is the main issue with our do nothing leader.
Hypocrisy is the state of pretending to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that one does not actually have. Hypocrisy involves the deception of others and is thus a kind of lie.
Hypocrisy is not simply failing to practice those virtues that one preaches.
It should be no surprise that the " Vacationer-in-Chief" is the king of all Hypocrites. As demonstrated by him on multiple occasions, and most recently yesterday:
Friday, President Obama reacted to the Senate’s failure to pass his gimmicky Payroll Tax Cut Extension:
“We need to get this done. And I expect that it’s going to get done before Congress leaves. Otherwise, Congress may not be leaving and we can all spend Christmas here together.”
Apparently, Congress will be adjourning to Hawaii, because the White House announced tonight that Barack Obama will take a 17 day vacation in Hawaii over the holidays.
THE WHITE HOUSE TRAVEL OFFICE
Trip of the President to
December 17th, 2011 to January 2nd, 2012
On Saturday, December 17th, 2011, the President will travel to Honolulu, Hawaii. He will return to Washington, DC on Monday, January 2nd, 2012. ...
...no public events are scheduled during the trip. ...
They made the announcement on a Friday when people pay little attention to the news. He and Congress should both stay & work out the issues we have as they all have too much time off. While all should have time off at the holidays, 17 days is excessive and too many people are out of work. This type of egregious abuse of time off is exactly what is wrong with government. It demonstrates a complete lack of understanding for " leadership by example", a concept that has no meaning in the White House. How many in our country could take 17 days off at the holidays ? Not many and that is a clear indicator of how clueless Obama is as he exists in a world where rules and normal expectations are for others. His abuse of time off is as bad as those who ask for a government bail out but still take massive bonuses for failing.
For anyone to continue to support this charlatan is folly. He is a poser, and a sanctimonious one at that. The American people need to send him & his ilk back to Chicago. We need real leadership and all we get from the White House are lies, lies and more damned lies.
The citizens of Hawaii will have to endure having him there and the sooner he is ousted in next year's election, the sooner we can get our country back on track.
