I've attached an excerpt from an article I've read recently. I have sounded off on this recently on different blogs- but is it me or is any one else furious over Obama's 7.6 million dollar vacation! He's by far the biggest hypocrite I know. Didn't he just win an election by condemning the 1 Percenters and blaming them for America's problems. Didn't he admonish Governor Romney for being rich and owning nice things? Yet he and his family are going on a lavish vacation on America's doll. Think of what that money could have got the US citizens. The first thing is that they could have opened the White House for tours once again. Secondly, that sum of money could have bought a significant amount of people without healthcare medical coverage. And the list goes on.
Where's the media outrage? Imagine President Bush doing such a thing. The media would cry foul and he'd be crucified on the TVs, papers and radio. Yet, Obama does it and the media looks the other way. In fact, they act as if he deserves the trip and cheer him on this whole taxpayer funded getaway. This is a real slap in the face to us Americans. He preaches to us that we should tighter our belts and live more frugally. Yet, he does the exact opposite and nobody is calling him out on it.
Well, I am calling you out Obama. You are a failed leader, a divider of the country, a destroyer of the American way of life and the biggest hypocrite. You will go down as the worst president we ever had.

resort home on southern edge of the island in the town of Chilmark where homes
feature water access to Chilmark Pond, tennis courts and swimming pools.

past Obama vacations because the $21 million home they've rented, Blue Heron
Farm, isn't available. Schulte's summer home sits on nine and a half acres, has
ocean views and a basketball court.

staffers to Martha's Vineyard, security will be tight. As in the past, the
