President Obama apparently needs some down time, and plans to jet off to West Palm Beach, Florida – one of the more popular playgrounds of the uber-rich. The fact just days earlier the president was once again demanding the wealthy in American pay their fair share, and how tough things are for the Middle Class will likely be lost on the low information Obama supporters who simply accept the president’s repeated “do as I say not as I do” routine…

Obama to Vacation in West Palm Beach
Taxpayers will be sending President Obama on his second vacation of the year when he departs Friday aboard Air Force One for a Presidents’ Day Weekend excursion to West Palm Beach, Florida.
…While unemployment stands at nearly eight percent, Obama is taking his second vacation of 2013. The year is only six weeks old.
…Obama initially traveled to Hawaii in late December. He returned after a several days to work on a fiscal cliff deal, and then went back for several more days in early January after signing a bill. So this will also be the third time in less than two months that taxpayers have footed the bill for a round-trip Obama vacation
…It’s not clear if Michelle is going with him – the White House announcement of Obama’s plans doesn’t mention her. She usually goes skiing in the Rockies around this point in the year. LINK
Two vacations in a six week time span – both in areas designated wealthy playground hotspots. Oh – and it’s quite possible Michelle will be jet setting off to her own vacation – with the First Couple apparently needing more time away from each other.
West Palm Beach Florida huh? Hmmm…
(Hey Barack! C’mon down!)
