Could President Vay-Cay's Timing Be Any Worse?

Update #2: The market is down by almost 500 points today--again; the weekly jobless claims are up "unexpectedly" (haha, that's a joke, although it's not funny) again; and NObama's disapproval ratings over at Rasmussen are minus-23, tying the lowest disapproval number of his presidency--again. Yet Obama is off on his fantasy, preppy, getaway New England vay-cay to Kerryland where he can hang out with the millionaires and billionaires--again. I have a theory: this dude knows he has no chance of re-election, so he's thrown in the towel and decided to live large at America's expense for as long as he can. It's clear the First Narcissist has no intention of being pushed around by the opinions of Regular American Joes and Janes. Have fun, Barry; your days are numbered, dude.This Vineyard vay-cay is about perception and optics, and this vacation at this time couldn't be any worse for this president. Too bad he's too tone-deaf to figure that one out.

When is this hell going to end? After he gets back from his blah, blah "listening" (I talk, you listen) bus tour (he bought buses that were made in Canada--how rich is that?), he goes to Martha's Vineyard for his 10-day-vay-cay. He played golf yesterday after telling us that in "September" he'll put out his jobs plan. But not to worry: everyone without a job and getting unemployment insurance is giving the economy a BOOST. Double that if someone is also on food stamps. Isn't that GREAT?

Quote from Donald Trump: "Well, the fact is, he takes more vacations than any human being I've ever seen. . . .I mean, it sends a bad message. Here we have a country that really is going to hell in a handbasket. Let's not kid ourselves. What's happening to this country is horrible. All over the world, they're talking about it. And we have a president that's constantly--whether it's Martha's Vineyard or someplace else--constanly on vacation. I mean, all the time he's on vacation! so I think it sends a very, very bad message. We have to work in this country to bring it back."

Hey Barry, I think they LOVE you in Iowa. Heh. Not exactly the huge cheering crowds he was hoping for, is my guess.

Update. I saw Rep Allen West on TV tonight (R-Florida). His comment: "People are upset because the big black bus isn't going into any black neighborhoods." Was there ever a bus trip by any politician that was a bigger failure than this one? By the way, where is the First Lady? MIA, as usual, when it comes to doing anything that might be construed as "work." She "doesn't get paid" for the job, so I guess she isn't going to do it.
