Barack Obama: It's good to be the king as he heads off on a 17-day Hawaiian Christmas vacation!

Obama is planning to fiddle in Hawaii while the United States does a slow burn!

Listen! The man works hard just like the rest of us (other than the millions of unemployed and underemployed in the country) and as the leader of the free world, doesn't he deserve a little R&R?

Personally I can't even begin to imagine the daily stresses this President lives under.

Simply getting up each morning knowing that you face another day of non-stop campaigning and fundraising is a stressful enough situation for any one man!

But then to have those basic "presidential" stresses compounded by the petty annoyance of unruly subjects who are incessantly whining and complaining must be too much to bare!

And to top it off subjects complaints are about such mundane topics like being out of work, trying to feed the kids and struggling to keep a roof over their family's heads.

Why, the President must often think to himself, can't all of these 99%'ers be more like the 1%'ers he has dinner and cocktails with every night on the fundraiser circuit?

The donor-type people who seem to have no trouble getting through life in a more than adequate fashion.

It is truly hard to fathom what this man must be going through, which makes it easy to understand why another extended vacation to paradise is called for.

But in all seriousness folks, just how arrogant, dumb, deaf and blind can this politician possibly be?

Americans are struggling. They are struggling real bad!

A vacation lasting 5 days at a Club Med, let alone 17 days in the paradise of Hawaii, has become the stuff that only dreams are made of for a vast number of the people in this country!

For this President though the vacations, date nights and recreation like country club golf seem all to be a right of passage he feels is justified and that he is entitled to no matter how much the rest of us suffer!

"...And Michelle and the girls will be back shortly for Christmas vacation, as we do every year. We'll see if Washington gets its business done, so I can get here as well. But that's always a challenge.’

It follows an 11-day stay in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, earlier this year, which is also believed to have cost the U.S. taxpayer millions..." (Source)

As a taxpayer stuck footing the bill for this trip, to the President and his family I say, 'A'ole pilikia!

The President certainly has the right to do whatever he wants which is a fact that the American public has been made painfully aware of these past few years.

Maybe he just needs some better advisors.

Or maybe the American public will finally get the idea about who Barack Obama really is and take that thought with them when they go to the polls in November, resulting in a new face in the White House!
