Obama wants everyone to go to Gulf Coast. Mean while they vacation in Maine visiting a national park for a weekend, Michelle and a daughter jets off to Spain to hob nob, right after preaching to go to the gulf coast. So glad they could squeeze in that 24 hrs in the gulf coast for a photo op, before heading off to Martha Vineyard for 10 days to hob nob with more of the beautiful people. After all wouldn't want to spend a vacation where real people might be.

Some say he wasn't born in the US.

Has anyone seen him eat lately? I doubt it, because he's a Muslim and is secretly observing Ramadan.

All seriousness aside, you dont care what his religion is, what is name is, but you care where he goes for vacation?

I care about the hypocrisy of do what I say not what I do. Las Vegas economy is still reeling from it's conference business because of the blow heart and his businesses should not have conferences during a recession. Which economy do you think needs the financial stimulus of a presidential visit. Martha's Vineyard or the gulf coast? Which has been hurt more by his policies Martha's Vineyard or the gulf coast?

Moochelle ... classy post for a 50something year old white man who professes to be a professional.

But he went. 5-6 weeks after he said all of us should, he went himself. Where's the hypocrisy again? Also, I certainly question how much "financial stimulus" is brought about by a presidential visit. You guys are acting like he's some sort of Jesus figure, he's not.

Lets see the largest oil spill to date in the gulf and he spent less than 72 hours in Louisiana on his 3 visits. But hey that is okay it made Gov. Jindall look real good to a lot people across the nation. Being on site vs just stopping by on the way to a fund raiser with the beautiful people.

Yeah, he went 1 lousy day (so glad he could squeeze it in)!!!! As far as economics of government spending. Lets see you have a advance SS detail and staff. The original SS detail that guards him. The follow up detail that stays behind to move the equipment to the next stop. You have staffers and other personnel. It just isn't Obama, Michelle and the kids. That would be a lot of hotel rooms filled. Local eateries busy just from his staff and details. That would be a lot of coin for some of those tourist businesses hurt by the oil spill.

Trust me he lost the god appearance a long time ago to normal American's.

What exactly was he going to do by being there? Would his efforts toward the spill be more or less effective if he was on-site?

I think it's really a non-issue. He encouraged people to visit the Gulf Coast. His wife and family visited in July, he visited for a weekend. Where's the issue, aside from the fact that he didn't take MORE vacation?

Finally, I question that buying hotels for secret service agents has a very dramatic impact on a depressed tourist area. The larger impact is (like it or not) the fact that he visited at all. The Panama City Beach press certainly thinks so.

27 hours is a weekend Question

I don't think you realize how many people it takes for a presidential visit. Then times that by the number of days he stays. That is quite a bit of coin.

Lets face it the gulf coast is red, no need to stay there.

LOL... 27 hours is a weekend in all but two of the 57 states :-)

ok... suppose it's $2 million dollars a day pumped into the economy. They stay a week, that's $14 million. I think that is an extremely generous estimate on my part. The gulf coast tourism and fishing industries are worth (by some estimates) $230 billion a year. What is that, 0.0002% I dont even know How to do the math. My point is that it would be more effective use of tax dollars to employ people to clean up the mess than it would be to fly the president down there and back, hoping that he becomes a tourist attraction.

Well since the oil is no longer a threat to that area of Florida and Alabama, why would there be a need for cleanup workers. So yeah 10 days of an actual visit. Plus the advance team arrives at least 3 days ahead. They work in 24 hour shifts vs just one shift (multiple by 3). Then the press that follows him add another 100 people. Quite a chunk of cash.

It's funny but when I heard Obama say "Turn the page" in his speech, I immediately thought of the line from the Bob Seger song with the same name - "Here I go, playing star again". Smile
