"This actually belongs in humor...."

First lady Michelle Obama on Monday told a fundraiser in Southern California of the toll the presidency has taken on her husband Barack Obama.

"I see the sadness and worry that's creasing his face," she said to a crowd of about 500 at the Pasadena luncheon organized by the Southern California Women For Obama. She described his worth ethic as “tireless,” according to pool reports.

"He reads every word, every memo, so he is better prepared than the people briefing him," she said. "This man doesn't take a day off."

She said the next two years of campaigning would be difficult for the Obamas and their supporters. "It is not going to be easy, and it is going to be long," she said. "Now more than ever we need your help to finish what we started."

She also mentioned health care reform, the passage of the Lilly Ledbetter Act and the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. She praised "justice" in the killing of Osama bin Laden, and the withdrawal of troops from overseas.

Guests paid $1,000 per ticket to attend the event.

Obama Has Shot 41 Rounds of Golf as President

President Barack Obama has played a remarkable 41 rounds of golf since becoming president, easily outpacing his predecessor and possibly damaging his ability to portray himself in 2012 as a populist advocate of average folks.
http://www.whitehousedossier.com/2010/07/16/obama-played-41-rounds-golf-president/
.....................
According to the information source, Politico, "By Knoller's count, Saturday's golfing outing with Biden was Obama's 39th round of golf since he took office (and his 7th since the start of the oil spill on April 20th)" which is over 2 times per month. In the last month Knoller has fed information to The Wall Street Journal showing that Obama has already golfed more in 20 months than his predecessor did in his entire two terms of 8 years!
....................
White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton on Monday defended President Obama’s frequent golf outings, telling reporters it “does us all good as American citizens.”

How many vacations has the Obama clan taken this year and how much of our tax dollars have been wasted on them?
I remember the left would have hissy fits when ever Bush would go to his ranch in Texas and chop wood, clear brush etc. very low key stuff. Why no outrage from the hypocritical left with the out of control rich and famous indulgences from Michelle and Barrack?
...........................
BEST ANSWER:

Because their blind faith in King Obama cannot be influenced by logic or reason...

You are 100% correct. W would fly to Crawford to take a working vacation, with absolutely minimal expense (other than AF 1) to the tax payers...

Where is the liberal outrage when King Obama flies his dog ON A FRICKEN PRIVATE JET to their vacation in Maine?

Where is the liberal outrage when King Obama flies (on AF 1) to NYC for "Date Night"? Est expense for that night was over $240,000.

Where is the liberal outrage when Queen Michelle flies to Spain, with 40 of her closest friends, at rooms costing about $2,500 a night (60 rooms total) for a week of SHOPPING and eating???

The BIG issue is that the liberal "useful idiots" are enabling the Obamas to live like royalty. NOBODY has the right to squander US Tax Dollars, at the rate that the current administration is doing!!!!!

The Obama's DON'T give a rats a$$ about the common man. All they want is to live like royalty for 4 years, with absolutely NO acknowledgment of the sacrifices that the "common man" is making.

The Liberal Elites like to live like royalty, on our tax dollars. No exceptions!

For the BIG picture, they want to destroy the economy, so that THEY can stay in power. Ruin the ability of the average american to provide for themselves, so that the government can do the providing... Free Cheese (just enough to survive) from the government is just a socialist method for buying votes. The party that gives out the most free cheese will win the elections. IT's the useful idiots that allow this to happen.

How Much Did Obama’s Family Vacation Cost Taxpayers?

Spanish police close public beach for Michelle Obama's £250,000 Spanish holiday...$498,579.05 US DOLLARS
Michelle took 90 people with her when she went on vacation to Spain.. Air Force 1 costs $200,000 dollars per hour to fly it. About 150 million dollars a week.

Just to fly Air Force One is about $70,000 per hour. This does not include all the other cargo planes and other equipment that follows the President when he travels.

When Mr. Obama flew back to Illinois for one night and flew back to Washington DC for one night and back again to Illinois (2 round trips in one long weekend) - Air Force One cost $214,768.00 and the cargo plane that flew with him in AF1 cost another $32,140.00. For a grand total of $246,908 for Mr. Obama's two round trips to Illinois over a five day period.

Hawaii Newspaper Says Obama Vacation Cost More Than 1.4 Million...Over $1.4 million. That’s the generous estimate of how much the Obama family vacation cost taxpayers this Christmas. $1,474,200 to be exact.

Luxury Getaways for the President: Martha's Vineyard and Beyond
…Caroline Taylor, another Martha’s Vineyard realtor, estimated that the property would go for $35,000 to $50,000 a week. The Obamas will pay for at least a portion of the rental, but taxpayer funds will be used to pay for Secret Service and staff housing on the property.

No they don't. I spent my career in sales and observed consistently that those of us who made quota did not play golf. Those who were behind quota played golf.
Contrary to many claims, deals are not made on the golf course. Friends are made on the golf course, not deals.

A president does not work a regular 8 hour day. He's on call 24/7, even on vacation. He's allowed to take
breaks like anyone else. He chooses to play golf on his down time.

"He reads every word, every memo,
Liar. We are not as stupid as you idiots think we are. Nobody has time to read "every word/memo." If he does (and he most certainly doesn't), he is not fit to be president. Leaders delegate.


so he is better prepared than the people briefing him," she said.
NO! This man "thinks" he is smarter-bettered prepared-more qualified, etc, etc. He is a narcissitic fool and a pretender who is "playing" president. He isn't qualified or smart enough to listen to his advisors who are infinitely more qualified and prepared. The entire purpose of a briefing is so that this idiot can get professional and intelligent information from his subject matter experts to assist him in making good decisions. It is meant to be brief to cut to the bottom line with the pertinent details. The brief isn't for O Blah Blah to hold forth his Court to showcase his "superior" intellect. O Blah Blah is usually the DUmbest person in any room he occupies.

"This man doesn't take a day off."
:rolleyes: Another lie.

I doubt that the Liar-In-Chief has read page 1 of the Health Care Bill cause he sure does not know what is in it.

That all depends on one’s definition of "work"!
Personally, I don’t consider gum flappin about how to get reelected with fellow democrats work.
