Pics: Whew! Obama salvages his Hawaiian vacation at higher cost to taxpayers

The true crisis has been averted: Obama has salvaged his swanky Hawaiin vay-cay, and isn’t that really all that matters?

Twitter users aren’t as excited.

But he’s totally working hard, guys.

Huh. Bill shmill! He’s got surfing to do.

At more cost to we, the people, natch.

    Meanwhile, most Americans either can’t afford a vacation, or are treated like they are boarding Con-air by the TSA.

    Well, be fair, he really does the need the time off, he’s in SO far over his head at this point. And the bright side, at least he can’t do as much damage on vacation than when he’s trying to actually DO something.

    Thanks a lot you jacka$$. My paycheck is $12 smaller today. Enjoy your vacation.

    • $36544368

      I’m sorry your paycheck is $12 smaller…people may say $12 is no big deal, but it doesn’t matter how much smaller it is, it shouldn’t be smaller at all! Just saw hubby’s first check for 2013…it is $273 smaller…between tax increase and medical insurance deduction increase, that’s how it looks for us. Really bummed…I knew the checks would be less, but I had no idea that it would be this much…guess I’ll be driving my 17-year-old car a few years longer.

        I agree completely that $12 isn’t a lot, but it’s $624 a year. That’s 6 weeks of groceries, 6 tanks of gas, an extra mortgage payment, etc. My health insurance won’t renew until March so who knows how much an increase that will be. $273 less per paycheck, like you are experiencing, is criminal. Good luck to you! Let’s all hang on tight, it’s going to be a bumpy ride. Between my husband and I we’re paying an additional $1,664 yearly.

    Bitch, Bitch, Bitch! CrisisAverted Barry just generated a whooping $62B in “revenue” to pay down that $1.?T deficit and all you loser conservatives can do is Bitch about a few measly million! Racists!

    Why can’t you thank Dear Leader for the week of vacation time he so generously gave up to return to the trenches and turn it over to SlowJoe Biden! We definitely could not win WWII again!

    It is in fact sarcasm, Sheldon!

    Let’s hope they enjoy the trip as much as the Brady Bunch did.

    It’s like he is completely oblivious to the seriousness of the situation.

    He could take a note from the British Royal family that not only took the same rations as everyone else during WWII, but they refused to leave London during the Blitzkrieg.

    For someone who is always trashing the “1 percent,” he acts awfully entitled. And at least those 1 percenters are using their own money for their lifestyle versus Obama who is doing it on the back of taxpayers.

    He is not worthy to set foot in Pearl Harbor!

    You know, when you become President, you should be taught how to salute properly.

      One of the problems of having a CINC who never wore a uniform.

    • Sheldon Cooper

      How much you wanna bet that MSgt and TSgt have their left hand fingers crossed?
      A little slight of respect we used to do with Clinton.

      • Maxwell

        Haha, nice! I’ll have to remember I can cross the fingers on my left hand if I have to salute someone I can’t stand.

      actually he is getting better.. usually his hand is in front of his crotch.

  • madian_kikyou

    What a jerk! Who does he think pays for all this junk? Then again he probably knows and that’s why he does it. Hey, Mr. president: WE OWE YOU NOTHING!

  • lainer51

    wonder how the people living in their cars on Staten Island are enjoying their vacation?

  • ember

    Since the US is in such debt, we need to sell Air Force One and the prez needs to learn how to work skype. No more need for him to travel. He can stay home and save the environment by not wasting some much fuel.

    Was a president of ANY country ever,

    more despised than obama…?

    His servile media will be sure to keep those sentiments a big secret.
