FOD

Joseph Curl, in the Washington Times, has an excellent article about the Obama's endless vacation, and their apparent lack of concern for what we sequestration-hindered hacks think about it...
Neither President Obama nor first lady Michelle appear to give a damn about perception. They won the White House and, by God, they’re going to enjoy their time there, no matter the cost. And who cares what you think, anyway?
How else to explain the nonstop vacations the pair keep taking during what Mr. Obama calls the “worst financial crisis since the Great Depression”? In 2013, the First Family has already enjoyed three vacations — that’s one a month. (Sorry, Joe America, you might have to forget your week at the beach again this year, but make sure you get those taxes in on time!)
The Obamas ended 2012 and kicked off 2013 in an $8 million, 6,000-square-foot house in Hawaii (they left well before Dec. 25, by the way). There, the president played five rounds of golf (breaking the 100-rounds-as-president threshold). Scarcely a month into Term 2, Mrs. Obama headed off for Aspen, taking along the couple’s daughters. Vice President Joseph R. Biden also hit the Colorado slopes. While the girls (and Joe) were gone, Mr. Obama nipped down to Florida for a four-day boys weekend of golf, teeing it up with his buddies — and Tiger Woods. He hit the links again this weekend, then dropped in for an NCAA tournament game in Washington.
It seems like the media tide may be beginning to turn on Blowie.  Too little, too late - and just in time for them to find a new liberal darling to prop up before the 2016 election.  But, the schadenfreude while reading articles like the one above is a small comfort.

I wonder if the Obama's do a picture calendar like my boss does of his trip a month photos? I wonder if they then bring it into work and show their employees the finished product?
