Prez-O has no plans to nix summer vacation..

..and stay state-side to deal with the contrived debt crises here at home, according to an AFP story run today.

I don’t understand why people are getting crabby about prez-O taking a vacation with his family………………………….even as the People’s livelihoods drop around America’s ankles…..because a man has to keep up the high-life that he’s grown accustom to, for instance, according to Mark Knoller of CBS, since taking office,

  • prez-O flew in Air Force One 328 times, since taking office.
  • That works out to prez-O flying ’bout every other day.
  • Let’s break it down, shall we!
  • That would be 111 domestic trips spanning 176 days, 16 foreign trips to 25 countries over 70 days, and 10 vacation trips spanning 58 days, since taking office.
  • In 2010, prez-O had face-to-face meetings with 61 foreign leaders, 30 for the first time.
  • prez-O took 196 helicopter trips, signed 203 pieces of legislation, and managed to squueze in 29 rounds of golf.
  • prez-O made 15 visits/spanning 35 days to Camp David.
  • 28 basketball outings, since taking office.
  • 254 interviews since taking office.
  • WH officials told reporters recently that prez-O doesn’t intend on hanging around the WH as much in 2011; he wants to get out more, ‘specially ’round the country, hawking his wares.   There’s an election comin’ up, ya know.
  • prez-O has made 883 speeches, statements and remarks since taking office (491 prior to taking office).
  • prez-O has visited 38 states (out of his 57) for the first time, since taking office.
  • That works out to ’bout 600 days of  a Perpetual prez-O-Campain schtick.  Fasten your seat belts, folks!  Bumpy ride ahead!
  • Air-Force estimates put the cost of flying for one HOUR at..wait for it.. $181,757.00 !!!!!
  • That’s not counting the additional travel costs for the customary WH brood entourage, Marine One, Secret Service, special vehicles, logistics and local poleece overtime, either.
  • Wow!  That’s one he!! of a frequent flier dollars going into prez-O’s carbon footprint, wouldn’t you say?!?
  • prez-O made one official utterance every 11 waking hours.
  • prez-O spends nearly half his presidency outside Washington, DC.  Plans to travel more.
  • Vacationer-in-Chief spent $1.75 to visit Hawaiian chums.
  • prez-O has spent over $100M taxpayer dollars flying around in Air Force One.
  • Probably another $100M on his entourage.


So, who’s to begrudge a working man some time off, even so, summer vacation…?  Really!?!
