Oh good job, Barack.
If it sounds like President Obama has been on perpetual vacation, judging by the amount of global disasters that are taking place, you wouldn’t be alone in thinking that.
The list is actually downright terrifying; shall we indulge you?
Obamacare, 5 Separate Wars, a Racial Divide Not Seen Since the 1960s, Lowest GDP Growth since nobody alive can remember, Real Unemployment through the roof, Highest Debt ever, Cop-Killings, Christians Beheaded, Iran Nuclear-Capable (by our hands), Israel Threatened from Every Quarter, High Taxes, EPA out of control with Regulations, Russian Envoys Ejected from US soil, Democrats eating their own, Feds stealing State land, Illegals crossing the border in record numbers, Triple A rating downgraded, ISIS tearing up the world, Universities supporting terrorists, Protests/Riots, Benghazi, Email Scandals, IRS Agents Hunting Conservatives, Half of Europe in Bankruptcy…
And President Obama has spent in excess of $100M on jet-setting around the world to vacation with the First Fam and to do a little light fund-raising. The worst part is that this has put a surprisingly harsh strain on the country.
“President Obama’s travel expenses cost taxpayers more than $96 million during his time in office, according to a report from the watchdog group Judicial Watch.
The group obtained documents from the Secret Service and Air Force that revealed President Obama’s travel over the last eight years totaled $96,938,882.51.”
Not only did the Obamas spend taxpayer money like Charlie Rangel hopped up on caffeine-drenched lattes in the Bahamas, but they paid you lip service to boot, promising that they would NEVER do such a thing!
Yes I’m Right concludes with a reference to a Washington Free Beacon report:
“This has a lasting effect on the Secret Service.
‘The Obamas’ notorious abuse of presidential travel perks wasted military resources and stressed the Secret Service,’ said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch. “Judicial Watch estimates that the final costs of Obama’s unnecessary vacation and political travel will well exceed $100 million. President-elect Trump can immediately save taxpayers money by reforming presidential travel.”
Just like a typical politician, however, the Obamas lived rent-free for the past eight years in a gargantuan mansion with servants and banquets, all paid for, and yet felt compelled to spend in excess of $100M more in order to satisfy an itch. The itch? To see just how far they could push the envelope with the American people before the camel was finally crushed beneath the weight of all that condescension.
Obama had a full eight years to make a difference, to ease global tensions (remember his Nobel PEACE Prize?), to increase empathy between the races, to show the American people that many of them had not made a mistake by voting for him, and finally, to demonstrate that all the trillions of dollars spent so rapidly actually meant something other than payback to the unions and the George Soroses of the world.
A full eight years…and it appears that everything is worse and the country has gone off the rails in the wrong direction! This was not laziness. It was gross neglect on the part of a by-proxy president who never took the blame for a single one of his own terrible misjudgments. And what has it wrought? The Democrat Party at its weakest point since its creation.
Welcome to comeuppance, Mr. President.
