Obama Vacations: Do as I say, not as I do.

Post  Cincy Fan 44 on Wed Jul 14, 2010 11:11 am

http://whitehouse.blogs.foxnews.com/2010/07/13/obama-heads-north-not-south-for-weekend-vacation/?test=latestnews

When President Obama sat among local officials at a snack bar in Pensacola, Florida last month, he emphasized that the Sunshine State's beaches were "open for business" and vowed to do everything his administration could to help those in the region. Well, maybe not everything. When the president and his family go away later this week for a mini-vacation, they'll be traveling almost 2,000 miles away from the oil spill, escaping the heat in Washington for the cooler weather up north at Mount Desert Island, Maine.

Yet the vacation spot being touted by Michelle Obama on Monday was the Gulf coast. During her first trip to the region after the oil spill, the first lady encouraged Americans to head down South and visit, emphasizing that "most of the coast is still open for business.” Mrs. Obama lamented that many are only seeing what has been reported in the media about the oil spill, and thus might not realize there are plenty of towns and beaches along the Gulf Coast that are awaiting tourists. “Most of these beaches are perfectly clean," she said.

When asked if the first family was making arrangements to vacation along the gulf beaches, especially after encouraging others to do so, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said no vacation plans had been changed.

Florida, with a coastline of over 1,200 miles, is one of the country's top tourist destinations and generates over $60 billion a year in taxable sales revenue. The state's tourism industry also employs over one million Floridians -- something that was not lost on the first lady. During her stop in Panama City Beach on Monday she said "folks here in Florida and across the Gulf Coast are still depending on visitors and tourist dollars to put food on their tables and to pay their mortgages and to send their kids to college." After a barefoot walk on the beach, the first lady helped Florida's tourism sales by indulging in a cup of chocolate ice cream at an ice cream shop. BP has already agreed to give Florida money for marketing and advertising campaigns that will focus on convincing travelers the state's beaches are safe.

Maine would mark the president's third vacation trip since the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded and sank into gulf waters, over 80 days ago. The first family spent Memorial Day weekend relaxing in Chicago and just three days after the crisis began, Mr. Obama traveled to Asheville, North Carolina for a weekend getaway with the first lady and indulged in a round of golf. Since then, the president has hit the links nine times since the beginning of the oil spill prompting the Republican National Committee to unveil a website Monday, "Golf or Gulf," questioning the president's dedication to the Gulf region. RNC Chairman Michael Steele has called on Mr. Obama to stop playing golf until the BP oil spill crisis has been fixed.

Well isn't that just spactacular! 1 Term and out for Barry! Can't wait to rescind my vote in November 2012. Unfortunately he seemed to be the lesser of the 2 turds in 2008. Not so sure that's the case anymore.

Everyone? I dont even recall his vacations... Obviously there is a peep or Cincy wouldnt have an article to quote...

The Golf or Gulf thing is hysterical... Lets get him some bags that he can defecate into so he can sit at his desk all day instead of getting up for 5 hours to play golf 4 times in a month.

There are real ways Obama is screwing up. Taking a vacation to Maine isn't one of them. You guys heading down to the gulf this year?

Okay, so let's give him a pass on the oil spill then.

Not planning on heading to the Gulf for a vacation (actually going to Cleveland though for a few days), but then again, I'm not on national TV telling people they should come to the Gulf for their vacation either. Razz

I never said give him a pass... what exactly, exactly would you have had him do differently? Perhaps we should have federalized the cleanup, then you guys would be griping about the deficit... He assigned a top guy to oversee the cleanup in Thad Allen, and he likely should have done that earlier than he did... I will say this... The relief wells being drilled are not supposed to be done until August, and now BP is trying something else in the meatime that may actually work before that... are we men enough to give the administration (via Allen) any sort of credit for that?

The economy is doing what Obama said it would do, go through a long period of slow recovery, throughout which there is a risk that the economy will recede again.

I give BP the credit for the new cap. Government did nothing to fabricate it, install it. Matter a fact government slowed its process to make sure the oil head wouldn't leak somewhere farther down. Now you can look at that as good or bad (allow more oil to continue to gush or will create more of a problem).

Meanwhile Louisiana bought all the stone for the barrier island strategy to protect the wetlands. Government still not allowing that to proceed.

For LTRT:

Despite two wars and an economic collapse crowding his plate, Obama's taken comparatively little time off.

According to a tally kept by Mark Knoller, a CBS News reporter long recognized by the White House as authoritative on such matters, Obama has spent all or part of 65 days on vacation, including days at Camp David. At this point in his tenure, George W. Bush had logged 120 days. That included 13 trips to his Texas ranch.

Well lookie what we have here...

http://www.newsherald.com/news/vacation-85581-coast-washington.html

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is taking his own advice and taking his family to the Gulf Coast on vacation next month, something he and first lady Michelle Obama have been urging others to do to help the area's suffering economy.

The White House said the Obamas will visit an undisclosed section of Florida's coast the weekend of Aug. 14.

Obama has made four trips to the Gulf region, including an overnight stay, since an underwater well exploded in April and began spewing oil into the Gulf of Mexico. First lady Michelle Obama was scheduled to make her second visit the area on Friday.

On their trips to the region, both the president and Mrs. Obama have made a point of encouraging people to visit Gulf Coast beaches that are open and oil-free to help boost an area economy battered by the sharp decline in tourism that followed the spill.

"One of the best ways that fellow Americans can help is to come on down here and spend some money," Mrs. Obama said this month in Panama City Beach, where she strolled barefoot in the sand and bought a cup of chocolate ice cream.

Since the explosion that killed 11 workers, the Obamas — sometimes without daughters Malia and Sasha — have escaped Washington for brief vacations in Asheville, N.C., their home in Chicago, and Bar Harbor, Maine, last weekend.

The White House did not say where in Florida the Obamas would be spending their time.

But wherever the family ends up, it will just be three Obamas — the president, the first lady and 9-year-old Sasha — instead of the usual foursome. Sister Malia, 12, will be away at camp for the first time — also at a location not disclosed.

Probably feeling the pressure of FOX News, Rush, Hannity, and Beck to go there! Very Happy

Reagan and Bush are still responsible for the largest share of this deficit, spend your energy at the right place, go protest these wars we are waging and wasting money on, that is bankrupting us, now taking care of our own.
