“Everyone must sacrifice for the greater good…”

"We're not that far removed from what most Americans are going through."

~Barack Obama

July 26, 2010


"Everyone must sacrifice for the greater good. Everyone must have some skin in the game."

~Barack Obama

July 27, 2010


The above quotes preceeded the announcement of the 2010 Obama family summer vacations. Michelle and daughter Sasha would travel to the coast of Spain with 40 of their "nearest and dearest" friends and 70 secret service agents and would stay in a $2500 a night resort; followed by a quick vacation in Florida (cheap photo op post BP spill), prior to embarking on their 10 day jaunt to Martha's Vineyard.


So does the above apply to E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E?! Or just the "commoners?!"(my question)

Future Surfer Czars?!  LOL

  • Vacationing is the only part of being a President he is qualified to do, so I guess he's doing it to the best of his ability & giving it his all. Unbelievable how they are able to enjoy his "presidency" on the backs of all the Americans who actually love this country & truly agonize over the way things have spiraled down since he's taken over. Can't wait to see him go & have our great country become great again.

  • The people who talk about everyone sacrificing are the ones who don't ever do it.

  • Obama is so far removed from reality and the every day man and woman it is unreal. He is such a moron without the experience to run a school let alone a country. I cannot wait to see that dipshit voted out.

  • There are actually some people who are sacrificing nothing because they have nothing.

    Many have nothing because they are stiff-necked ans will never take a lesson, however, they feel the need to tell their fiscal betters how to do something..

    They are THANKFUL for nothing and are too stupid to realize that they MUST learn to fish if they want to affect their future generations.

    They will whine a lot.

  • What more does he want? The skin off our backs? He already has the shirts.

  • We've all sacrificed, they bailed out banks and now NO ONE can get a loan... they continue to take more of our taxes but we get less services and kick back on what we pay in... HOW MUCH DO WE SACRIFICE BEFORE WE WAKE UP... what is next we live in tents while the rich pave over our houses they helped to get foreclosed?
