Obama and Wife Accused of Becoming King and Queen of America
Barack and Michelle Obama are entitled to vacations, but they are not King, Queen or royalty
such as the King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain. The Obamas
should remember that US families are suffering from the horrible
The last time I checked, the United States of America was a
constitutional republic with three co-equal branches of government.
Obviously, the President and his wife missed civics class and believe
we are living in a monarchy. What else can explain their outrageous
behavior? They think they are the King and Queen of America, to hell
with the U.S. Constitution.
During his tenure as President, the First Couple has enjoyed lavish
parties, state dinners, multiple vacations, concerts, golfing trips and
expensive Broadway dates. It has been one non-stop party at our
expense. Over the last 19 months, the First Couple has been living as
monarchs instead of public servants. This opulent lifestyle has not
been earned, but is being financed by suffering American taxpayers.
The latest outrage occurred last week in Spain, where Michelle Obama
vacationed with her daughter and forty of her closest friends. As this
country deals with the long
term ramifications of Obama’s policies, Mrs. Obama was dining with the
King of Spain, Juan Carlos, Queen Sofia and Princess Letizia. On the
resort island of Mallorca, the First Lady munched on gazpacho, turbot,
veal escalopes, rice, a vegetable ratatouille and fruit with ice cream.
How nice to dine withroyalty as millions of average Americans are looking for a job and trying to provide food for their families.
This five day jaunt cost taxpayers close to one million dollars.
What an outrage, just the latest example of a tone deaf administration.
In good economic times, this type of outlandish travel is
inappropriate, but especially in this horrible economy, it sends the
If Mrs. Herbert Hoover took a trip on the Queen Elizabeth with
dozens of her friends and charged the taxpayers of this country, the
media of the early 1930’s would have vigorously complained. Today, the
only criticism comes from the dreaded world of the Internet and talk radio. The lap dog lame stream media thinks it is just great for the First Couple to act like royalty.
Average Americans think much differently from the lame stream media.
Among the media elite, Barack and Michelle Obama are still very
popular; however, in real America, the popularity of Obama style
politics is plummeting. While the media constantly bombards us with
stories of his accomplishments or her great fashion, the American
public is not listening. In fact, as the media reports the President
playing basketball with NBA stars or Mrs. Obama lunching with monarchs,
the American people are becoming angrier.
Ironically, the media is making it worse for their heroes. The only
thing that will help Obama reverse his poor standing is a turnaround in
the economy and his policies are preventing a true recovery from ever
In the meantime, there is an ongoing political disconnect with the
American people. The Obamas continue playing the role of “Lifestyles of
the Rich and Famous,” while Americans live paycheck to paycheck, if they can even find a job. Americans know that the bad economy has been made worse by the President’s policies.
If the First Couple were truly concerned about the plight of their
constituents, they would be more mindful of their actions. In contrast,
the Obamas don’t consider the American public their bosses, but really
They rule over us with their feel good liberalism, espousing
unworkable high minded policies for a variety of problems.
Unfortunately, none of the Obama agenda is working. For example, the
stimulus package was a dismal failure and the healthcare bill is incredibly unpopular in this country.
It seems the administration is purposely pursuing an agenda that is
at odds with the wishes of the American public. While media
cheerleaders show the President playing basketball or his wife jet
setting across the globe, the popularity of the Obama administration
only declines more.
The American people have had enough of this presidential partying.
The Obamas should understand what they are creating, a climate for the
type of political revolution that has not been seen in this country for
many years. Of course a revolution is the last thing any real or phony
monarch wants to see from his loyal subjects. Does anyone remember King
