In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Obamas Share Sacrifice at Pricey Vineyard Restaurant

President and Mrs. Obama are sharing in the sacrifice tonight at the Beach Plum Restaurant on Martha’s Vineyard, which features an array of overpriced selections for the first couple to choose from that could easily bring the bill within range of $200.

They might, for example, choose to start the meal with a $15 chunk of pizza cheese – I’m sorry, “Fresh Mozzarella” with “Fresh Basil, vine ripened tomatoes, aged balsamic reduction, and chive dill.”

This is a good mix because some things are fresh, and some things are aged.

But the sacrifice really gets serious with the entree, where the Obamas may want to order half a chicken for $38. Excuse me, please, “Herb crusted roasted half Katama Farm chicken; garlic mashed potatoes with steamed broccollini, rosemary jus.”

This would be perfect for me, because when I get tired of Perdue, I alway switch to Katama Farm.

There’s also the steamed twin Menemsha lobsters for $48. Isn’t Menemsha some kind of club for geniuses? I’ll take those.

But to be sure that they’re twins, I’ll need a BIRTH CERTIFICATE.

The restaurant notes, “We would be happy to split single entree items for an additional charge of $15.”

Well, of course! I’m sure being paid $15 to heap the same junk on two plates instead of one would make them very happy indeed.

So if the Obamas go with the cheese and the chicken we’re at $53 before dessert, tax, tip and booze. Now, looks like it’s bring-your-own-drinks with a corkage fee of $10. So if we assume $10 for a drink, $10 for dessert – you know they’re both having dessert – a 6.25 percent Massachusetts restaurant tax, and a 20 percent tip, we’re at $93 each, or $186 for the couple.

The average weekly Social Security check for a retired worker is about $274. Just saying.

And guess what? No peas on the menu. The Obamas don’t have to eat their peas.

  1. I see only one problem with your calculation. There are exceptions to any rule of thumb. But in 40 years of managing full service restaurants, a 20% tip from a black couple are few a far between. Especially from elitist liberal ones.

  2. Great article, can’t believe how ridiculous this prez is getting! We are barely surviving and have to pay for an army to escort him to buy $35 worth of books(and photo opo)?!? How can he continue to get even more out of touch when he knows how our economy is? WOW!

    1. And that’s the first and only $35 that he will spend of his money in his four years. The rest of his and Lady Michelle’s bills are all paid by working Americans. They are an embarrassment to all hard working Americans and to the human race.

      1. I think they have to pay for some of the food eaten in the residence and some other things… But basically, we are providing a nice, cushioned lifestyle, every want and need anticipated, so they can work and think–get that–work and think! People say he’s entitled to a vacation–if a change of scenery helps him work and think better, OK, otherwise, be brave and get on with it.

  3. I’m a 37yo software configuration expert for a well-known time and attendance company. I make around $40k per year and feel very grateful for it.

    When President Obama made the speech about Americans having to “eat our peas” it really struck home to me. If I open the cabinet above my desk, it is lined with empty Mason jars from which I ate my lunch over the past few months. That’s right, my lunch has often times been a Mason jar of green beans. That’s not by choice, but it’s all I can afford. Luckily, for me, my mother (67yo) grows a garden every year and cans vegetables.

    I’d like to tell President Obama that many of us have been eating our “peas”, or in my case green beans, for a long time now. Every vacation that he or his wife takes, at our expense, is a slap in the face. For him to say that WE need to tighten our belts only shows that HE has no idea what true sacrifice is like.

    2012 is coming. Let’s please get this pompous, inexperienced, non-pea eating jerk out of the most important office of our country.

      1. awesome! i’ll be watching! someones gotta do something- “why can’t we all just get along- i mean together”- It is constitutional that we defend our country!

  4. It sure looks like they “sacrifice” a lot, all for the good of the country. Those undeserved people. What is exactly that they do that makes them believe they deserve all those treats? They are taking us to the cleaners. Arrogant, they are very arrogant. Hate them!

  5. Where is that uppity elitist professor when we need her– you know, the one who lit into Paul Ryan over the price of the wine his hosts had ordered?

  6. These two act like two people who never had a dime and suddenly won the lottery and are going to do everything to excess, just because they can.
    They’ll probably order up a truckload of frozen lobsters to take with them when they leave the white house in 2012.

  7. I’m NO Obama jock-SUPPORTER, but I’m really like to see what you have submitted to be paid the SHAREHOLDERS of corporations you have, and currently work for!

  8. It would seem Mr. and Mrs. Obama are scarfing it up now as they know this is all coming to an end in a little more than a year. This man has no way of relating to Americans. He is not one of us and is set on our destruction.

    For sharp analysis, science and humor see The Two Minute Conservative at Now on Kindle.

  9. Mr. Koffler,
    Great writing! May God richly bless your work.
    P.S. Messiah is coming and He’s a conservative, Zionist Jew… All men, everywhere, prepare your hearts!!!

  10. I know one thing for sure. If I were part of the presidential secret service team I would ask for assignment to another unit (and not the vp’s either). Who in their right mind would want to potentially offer their life up for this guy?

    1. I once asked a Secret Service guy the same kweskin — he wasn’t in Sick Willie Clinton’s detail — but he sure didn’t look like he wanted to be, either. Funny, you get all kinds of bullcrap from the media — and then you get the reality, on the ground, where the players are.

  11. My home has lost half its value, my salary has been frozen as inflation eats away at it. My health insurance has risen 25% and my kids tuition has gotten more expensive under this president. I guess I can consider myself one of the lucky ones; I’m able to pay my bills and gave my family a two day vacation to a national park a couple hours up the road. So enjoy your lobster Mr. President and thanks for letting me pick up the tab for your wife’s flight to your swanky vacation spot. You’re doing a helluva job.

  12. Hi Granny Jan…You were wondering what the motive is for Obama’s ‘feet on the furniture’….think about it. The worst insult for a Muslim is the bottom of the shoe, i.e. the Dubya shoe-throwing incident in Iraq. Barry is giving America the middle finger salute everytime he puts his feet up on the desk in the Oval office. He got a lot of flak for talking on the phone to Netanyahu with his feet on the desk.

    He thinks he’s so clever..i.e. sending subliminal messages with his middle finger on his cheek when debating Hillary, etc. What a creep!


    OhBummer is a b00b and a fool for attacking the American Tea Partiers. Heck, he thought that he had all of us hoodwinked, hornswoggled, and bamboozled. He’s annoyed that the Tea Partiers are not grateful to him for hijacking the American healthcare system — the greatest act of vandalism perpetrated upon the American people since a gang of jihadi frootloops and loonytoons hijacked some planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center towers — and the Pentagon, and made a failed attempt to crash into the White House — and instead drilled a hole in a Pennsylvania farm thanks to some very courageous American passengers.

    And — now widely seen for what he is — the president presents a problem for the Democrat-captured media. They pump out his propaganda for him — and, like the opinion monitors in Ayn Rand’s novel, “Atlas Shrugged” — they are dodging brickbats and rotten vegetables.

    He’s pompous, pampered, and pretentious — a pseudo-intellectual fop. He’s a glorified, smooth-lyin’ dandy, and slicker than Sick Willie Clinton. He’s a dictator-on-the-make, a bloodsxcking, predatory humanitarian thug, and a low-down skunk.

    He’s a fraud and a swindler. He lies when he inhales and he lies when he exhales; his oxygen is the falsification of reality. He lies, placidly and laconically, as if deception were a soporific drug.

    He’s a friend of the poor and the downtrodden — indeed, you can hear the milk of human kindness sloshing around inside of him when he walks.

    He declares himself the post-racial leader — “Let me be clear!” he intones — and he hides behind his race, daring his critics to put their reputation for fairness at risk.

    He pauses to ponder the portent of his propaganda — and it is fakery; he smiles and his mendacity comes shining through. Shake hands with Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer — “The Mistake of ‘08” — the illegal alien squatter in the White House until his “papers” have been lab-tested for age and chemicals, etc — the King of The Republic of Lies — and America’s first and last Arab president. Now count your fingers.


    The Democrats have this “enemies list” — denominated in epithets aimed at the people whose wallets they wish to hijack and take up residence inside. You can be a “Racist!” and you can “wear a tinfoil hat” and you can be a “Homophobe!” and you can be a “T-bxgger!” — a homosexual man taking his partner’s scrotum into his mouth. You can be “Selfish!” and you can be a “Wacko!” and you can be a “Hick!” and you can be a “Rube!” and you can be “Uneducated” and you can be an “Extremist!” You can be a “Right-wing-nut!” and you can be “Mentally Ill” and you can be “Deranged!” and you can be a “Flake!” and a “Warmonger!” and you can be “Unenlightened!” and you can be a “FatCat!” and you can be a “Nazi!” and you can be a “Fascist!” — although no one more closely approaches the precise description of “Nazi!” or “Fascist!” than the usual Democrat propagandist — either official, or self-appointed.

    Lies, after all, are the heart and soul and the sword and shield of the Democrat party.

    So all you have to do to occupy multiple epithets on the Democrats’ enemies list is to insist that they take their hands off yourself, off your wallet, off your property, off your kids, off your diet, off your healthcare, off your household appliances, off your car, off your bank account, off your weapons of self-defense, off your liberty, and off your freedom of speech. Insist on all these good things – and that qualifies you to be spat upon by nasty, mean-spirited scXm — by The Friends of All Mankind — by a gang of lying, thieving, dope-smoking, pill-popping, coke-snorting, sticky-fingered, bloodsxcking, tax-eating, gun-stealing, predatory humanitarian thugs — by the Democrat party, in other words. No political party in the history of America more profoundly deserves absolute and outright destruction.



    “We were the first to assert that the more complicated the forms assumed by civilization, the more restricted the freedom of the individual must become.”

    — Benito Mussolini, fascist dictator of Italy

  16. “Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice; moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”

    — Karl Hess, libertarian speechwriter for Senator Barry Goldwater



    “You darkeners of counsel, who would make the property, lives and religion of millions depend on the evasive interpretations of musty parchments; who would send us to antiquated charters of uncertain and contradictory meaning, to prove that the present generation are not bound to be victims to cruel and unforgiving despotism, tell us whether our pious and generous ancestors bequeathed to us the miserable privilege of having the rewards of our honesty, industry, the fruits of those fields which they purchased and bled for, wrested from us at the will of men over whom we have no check.

    “Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, What should be the reward of such sacrifices? Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, and supplicate the friendship, and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom – go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    “Courage, then, my countrymen, our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty. Dismissing, therefore, the justice of our cause, as incontestable, the only question is, What is best for us to pursue in our present circumstances?”

    “It does not take a majority to prevail….but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”

    “Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: first a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can.”

    “The Constitution shall never be construed… to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”

    1. Thank you for posting this quote. It is not only the Obots who are ramming their way to ensconced power in our nation. There is a certain religion that is pressing for supremacy worldwide and our President is a friend to its intentions.


    What this country needs is a truly LIBERAL president and congress and judiciary! And I forgive the reader for suspecting that this must be some kind of bad joke!

    But the Democrats believe in “statism” — not “liberalism.”

    Strip them naked of their “liberal” camouflage and behold them in all their ugliness.

    They benefit from the imprecise American political terminology —- we say “the government” here in the USA —- rather than “the state.” And that’s a dangerous problem. Famous brands of statism in recent centuries have been Nazism, socialism, fascism, communism, and welfare statism —- this last is a mixture of fascism and socialism.

    Liberalism, on the other hand, is a political philosophy of small, cheap government —- it is a constabulary —- and the job of a liberal government is to enforce human rights within its own jurisdiction. I speak of the unalienable and perfectly-natural and universally-valid human rights of life, liberty, private property, and the pursuit of personal happiness.

    The first article of private property is “the self” and all other rights are derivatives of and flow from these cardinal rights. These rights —- The Rights of Man —- are the gift of nature or of nature’s god —- and they belong to all human beings, everywhere.

    Show me a Democrat who subscribes to all of the above, without qualifications or weasel words. The words “liberal” and “liberalism” were hijacked by the Democrats and socialists and fascists long ago —- and it was the mistake of conservatives and libertarians to let them get away with it.

    It is long past time that liberalism be reclaimed, defined, and explained by its rightful owners —- by the champions of freedom, i.e.: not by Democrats.

    Well, how about “progressivism?” Whuzzat?! “Cancer” is “progressive,” too. Isn’t “progressivism” just another statist cancer? It chews you up, piece by piece, in the name of Da Peepul? Eat Da Rich? Moral cannibalism, anyone?

    Friends of freedom! Friends of peace-through-strength! And friends of prosperity! Declare yourselves to be “liberals,” then —- and kick over the bloody coffee tables — and overthrow and trounce the Democrats in 2012!

  19. And the other Dem and Repub presidents didn’t do such things? This is a purely speculative, inflammatory attempt to make people angry, and it has no substance or sign of journalistic integrity in the least; any professional would be ashamed.

    1. If “the other guys did it too,” then show us. By the way, during WWII, the British secret service were tasked to create and distribute on the European continent and in multiple languages cartoons depicting the Nazi dictator Hitler and the commie dictator Stalin engaged in homosexual fornication. The point of this exercise was to promote disrespect and contempt for them, the better to get the underground national resistance movements and popular sentiment afoot against them. Now, did Adolf and Josef have a lovey-dovey relationship? Of course not — and a Democrat might say that they were unfairly maligned. And I would say that it couldn’t have happened to a lovelier pair of fellows. Have a nice day, sport. ~:<)

  20. Bottom line folks, Obama could care less about you, me…or anyone besides himself. Being elected President is like winning the lottery to this guy. His fat ass wife couldn’t even wait 2 hours for Barry’s plane, instead she had to have her own private plane to leave early. You think they give a flying crap about man-made global warming? Nope, that’s for all us little people to worry about. Oh, and all you unemployed people will have to wait until next month to see Obama’s new plan to create jobs. Obama is not going to spoil a vacation just because you’re hungry! Now, pass me the over-priced that over-priced menu!

  21. Reading these comments affirms the dumbing down of American society. Can’t people just stay on one topic without allowing their emotions to take hold and start name calling? The topic is he’s out for dinner at an expensive restaurant. Yes, there is a financial crisis in America. But for the majority of those in crisis – let’s look at their educational backgrounds, spending habits, personality traits (people who are not easy to get along with are first to be laid off), and even personal responsibility (did they have too many kids without the necessary preparation??). I realize that not everyone is born with the same intelligence, motivation, personality, etc, but when someone has succeeded in law school, and became the president of the greatest damn country in the world, that definitely entitles them to a fancy night out. Give me a break with the judgement. Why do so many americans feel they’re righteously in the business of moral policing?? It just makes no sense. I don’t necessarily agree with Obama’s policies, but I can remain calm, focused, and fair. Fairness doesn’t exist for people with mere hate in their hearts. Is it Obama’s fault that you spent more on credit than you should have? Is it his fault that you didn’t go on to higher education? Is it his fault that you’re working a crappy job? I don’t think so. Look to the corporatism, special interest groups, and exploiting policies of US policy over the past 2 decades or so….only then will you find your answers. BTW, I am a Ron Paul proponent!!

    1. “BTW, I am a Ron Paul proponent!!” Surprise, surprise, surprise!
      Let me help you out; last week Obama told us ALL that we were going to have to suck it up and “eat our peas.” This week, he and his wife took three huge jets (one for Michelle, Air Force one and its decoy), three helicopters (Marine one and the TWO decoys that fly with it), at least two fighter jets that accompany Air Force one, an Air Force cargo jet carrying Michelle’s motorcade and another carrying his motorcade, and another Air Force jet for staff, aides and Secret Service.

      Now, I know the Obamas are paying the rent on their digs ($50,000 a week) and that they paid for their own dinner tonight. But, who the hell do you think pays for the REST of that? Who is it that has been vilifying corporate executives for flying their corporate jets? Who is it that just told Americans that they were going to have to tighten their belts some more and sacrifice for the good of the country?

      “I don’t necessarily agree with Obama’s policies, but I can remain calm, focused, and fair.”

      No, you’re delusional if you don’t see the HYPOCRISY in what Obama preaches and what he practices. I don’t “hate” him, but he disgusts me.

      1. HYPOCRISY
        August 20ll
        GOP representatives not holding town hall meetings.
        While on their 5 week taxpayer recess.
        Lunch with Rep. Ryan $15
        Lunch with Rep. Quayle $35
        Lunch with Rep. Elmer $13
        NO TOWN HALL Meetings.
        “to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”
        That’s digusting. & HYPOCRISY

    2. Sandra, do Ron Paul a favor and don’t tell anyone you are a supporter.
      Your comments and blame the other poster’s (faults?) sound more like a supporter of Obama. Who is being judgmental now? Are you getting paid to post at 3:00 AM?

      1. Generally, you’ll find Ron Paul supporters sound NO different that O’Bozo supporters. The mighty Boa had the pleasure of spanking several last weekend. Once you point out their hypocrisy, look out. You’ll swear you are arguing with O’Bozo-bots…..

        He says “the difficult to get along with are the first to be laid off”….

        AH HAHAHA! If THIS isn’t typical O’Bozo talk, what is? He is saying to each and every person currently unemployed, you deserve it….

        What a total buffoon…..

      2. 3:00 am?? Maybe where you are. I’m on another continent currently. Opening my horizons with worldy travels….

        My point is proven with all of your replies. Just more self-rightousness and inability to put yourself in another’s shoes. I am not an Obama proponent, but he has been villainized by media. And sad thing is that the majority of people who stay glued to Fox can’t even see the bias. I agree that his policies have not been effective. But this economic timebomb started way before he got here.

        Yes, some of us who’ve been lucky to keep our jobs are relieved when the difficult personalities are the first to go. Not everyone deserves to be laid off, but there are painful personalites in every workplace.

        When was the last time you proactively wrote your congressman to campaign for stricter regulation on outsourcing?

        We’ve watched almost ALL our jobs go overseas and how many have you honestly done anything but complain amongst each other? They’re now making pharmaceutical drugs overseas (God knows what quality/safety standards) with worrisome shortages. It’s not just the blue collar jobs that are gone, slowly, but surely, they’re disappearing. But have you physically made a call, written a letter, organized a peaceful protest? Or do you just sit around and blame Obama?

        Back in 2000 I worked in semiconductor manufactuing and I watched the fabs slowly shutting down, one by one. First it was the manufacturing, then it was the design centers….now it’s just about the whole process. But this was in 2000 – way before Obama.

        What happened to the days when our country was united? Polarization is the new norm and I find it sad that when you disagree with someone your knee-jerk reaction is to throw thoughtless insults just for a silly disagreement. You can disagree and remain civilized.

        1. BTW, I believe that there are security reasons that they require such extravagant transporation. I believe he has had more death threats than any other president and he has every right to ensure his security at tax payers’ cost. Unfortunatetly there’s still a vivacious KKK clan stomping around the US…..all this purely based on ego….

        2. You can thank Clinton and his signing of NAFTA for the jobs fleeing overseas. You do realize the KKK was a formed by Democrats right? They didn’t like that Civil Rights Amendment much. In fact, if not for Republicans the Civil Rights Amendment never would have passed.

    3. “…people who are not easy to get along with are first to be laid off), and even personal responsibility (did they have too many kids without the necessary preparation??). I realize that not everyone is born with the same intelligence, motivation, personality, etc,..”

      Or class. What kind of elitist bimbo are you, “MA’AM”?

      “…when someone has succeeded in law school, and became the president of the greatest damn country in the world…” Lie, and then stroke us? Since when did Obama succeed at anything?? Espeically as our president?

  22. As a fifteen year old, I remember listening live to the transition from the corrupt Nixon to Ford and thinking that this was as bad a situation as we could have with our government.
    As an undergrad journalism major in 1979 and 1980, I remember thinking about the gas lines, and the Soviets on the march, and the Iranians taking over our embassy, and the images of the corpses of burned American hero/rescuers lying in the hulks of smoldering aircraft in the Iranian desert, and the clueless Jimmy Carter telling us that all would be well if we just put on our sweaters, turned up our thermostats, and accepted the fact that we were no longer a great nation, and thinking that actually, this was as bad as it could get.
    I had no idea that we could sink to the depths of electing someone like BHO for whom ignoring the Constitution would be the daily SOP.
    God bless all of you who are just as outraged by this man’s treasonous behavior, and may each of us fight everyday to resist his treason and force the ‘wrong people to do the right thing’.
    Keith – one last thing – – you have to be pissing off some totally amoral SOB’s with these excellent updates…please be safe!

  23. Keith Koffler is a gay closet nazi… Obama has taken 1/3 the vacation time as George W… and way less than Reagan… SO GET OVER IT !!! What he may or may not order on his dinner menu is sooo speculative and irrelevant…. What you SHOULD be focusing on is … WHAT CORPORATIONS ARE BACKING RICK PERRY ?… AND DO YOU WANT AN EVOLTION DENYING, BIG OIL SUPPORTING PUPPET IN THE WHITE HOUSE ?

      1. First of all, it’s evolution. Second, if Obama had done anything right he would be entitled to a vacation. But, he has spent all his time trying to destroy this country. He has succeeded beyond his wildest dreams. We are going down fast. So, no, he doesn’t deserve a vacation. He deserves a prison sentence for taking us to near bankruptcy, unemployment like the 1930’s Depression, 3 wars in the Mid East, even starting the 3rd one with out the consent of Congress. If you like his governance, you might consider moving to a third world nation where you might feel more at home. And you worry about Rick Perry’s religious views? Get real.

  24. And just thing, all of these people with skills and out of work and this writer gets paid for drivel such as this. Only in America. I’d bet he would follow Obama into the restroom.

  25. I’ll be dining at that Scottish restaurant that’s doing rather well these days, despite the poor economy and many other restaurants suffering or closing. Yes, I will be dining at McDonald’s, and probably off the dollar menu at that.

    But I wish Barack Hussein Obama all the luck and good fortune of another king, France’s King Louis XVI. “Let them eat lobster” will indeed be the 21st century updated version.

  26. There’s much to criticize about the First Couple without this douche bag reporter making hay over a $38 entree which is quite common these days and not excessive in the realm of a vacation dinner. Such a sorry excuse for a blog and a cheap shot that muddies the waters of real critique of where our attention should be cast. Jack Ass/

  27. Ok. I am not a fan of Obama at all nor did I vote for him but come on this is ridiculous. Why are they not allowed to have a nice night out without the kids and have dinner at a nice restaurant? I agree that him continuously playing rounds of golf and this vacation are wrong but he does deserve to eat? Honestly I don’t see a huge price difference in where they choose to go and other restaurants in that area. I guess the writer of this article and others expect them to eat at McDonalds or something.

  28. 16.2% U6 unemployment. While they party like royalty, people are working part time and living with friends to survive in the economy Obama created. He’s been in office 3 years and hasn’t had a single budget passed. Which shows in the way they live.

  29. Socialists usually take an opportunity to go to great lengths to flaunt their indignities at incidences of conspicuous consumption and are heartened when they come across one. In this case, attention would normally be diverted to other issues if the subject of their sniping is their own glorious leader. It comes as no surprise that the Obama’s can afford halves of a $100 chicken but my advice to President Obama is to bring Netanyahu in through the front door next time and hire a Secretary of State to advise him when the time might be ripe for him to publicly broach the discussion of giving up territory won through war. The public already knows that the Obamas are snooty elitists and conspicuous consumption is what they do best. Why bother them over being the best they can be?

  30. I resent Obama being referred to as King Louis. You must give proper deference to his humble African beginnings.

    I prefer Chief Obunghole. He certainly behaves like the Big Man in the village.

  31. Disgusting! I hope he looses by a landslide. But you know, there are some dopes that will vote for him. Hey Moochele – better watch your diet. Wouldn’t want to eat something that is bad for you

  32. Great , I’m sure we will see more pics coming our way of those two stuffing their faces, eat,eat, eat,drink,drink,drink,. We have allready had the cute picture of Barry eating his 3ft. high ice cream cone and the cute picture of Barry riding his bike down hill. Next we will see pictures of Barry working on his essay of “What I did on my summer vacation” and pictures of Moochelle working on her new book ” How to live like a Queen and not spend any of your own money.” Ist family indeed………….what a jooke.

  33. For crying out loud — leave them alone. Every time I take my girlfriend out for a date it costs anywhere between $100 and $200 depending on the venue and whether or not we get a bottle of wine. Even in economic downpour I like to flip a few bucks to treat my woman right. The guy gets paid $250k per year — well beyond my salary…I’m sure he can afford a few dollars to spoil his sweetheart. Stop attacking his every move and purchase — he’s as much of a human being as the rest of us…

    FYI – I’m a registered Republican. I’m not thrilled with the Obama Administration, but I do know when someone’s writing a biased article just to fuel the fire.

    I’m also a mathematician — I’m familiar with the “numbers” games. Keith Koffler – I generally enjoy your articles, but this is just an example of jealousy and anger. Control yourself before you write a bunch of crap about someone.

  34. And what did it cost to feed the two little brats Scumbag and Malaria?
    Not to mention Mrs. Robinson (mama in law ) who is ever present at these little family gatherings.

  35. Glad to see tyhe “let Them Eat Cake” vacation is off to such a modest beginning. The real lavish spending is done behind doors when they order in.

  36. I am sure that neither of the Obominations have student loans to pay and can therefore afford to vacation in style. Why can’t the Federal Government forgive federal loans for students and former students to GET THIS ECONOMY GOING AGAIN. Those loan repayments would automatically go into the economy! This beats the government building airports in places with no passengers … somehow this country is screwed up … could it be the politicians? I say, kick the bums out!

  37. Really…you are complaining about them going out to eat and spending money…Really…I go out to eat and spend 100 with my wife…should I be blamed for odering crabs, oyster soup and a nice salad…Really…with all that we have in this country going on you pick what they eat for dinner…get a grip and focus on the real issues.

    1. Patrick, my husband and I are able to spend that much, though we don’t. We do take expensive vacations. However, my husband is not POTUS and I am not FLOTUS. Also, I do not “lecture” my friends and family on how they should live and spend their money. I only offer advice when asked.

      Our POTUS and FLOTUS see fit to live off OTHER peoples’ money, you know taxpayer money, which is in short supply. They continue you to live high off the hog while telling the rest of us to “sacrifice, tighten our belts, and eat our peas”. Obama even said during his campaign for us to turn our household thermostats down to conserve energy, while he, the Great One, keeps the rooms in the WH at tropical temps (according to a variety of news sources).

      Good hard working Americans are sick to death of these two hypocrites and their endless attempts at destroying our economy and our spirits. Out with them in 2012

  38. Oh come on people this is the President of the United States here! I’m sure George W Bush had many a fine meal too. All presidents do. I mean come on, what is he supposed to do, eat ramen and hotdogs and chain himself to the desk in the oval office until the economy gets better? The president has little power or influance on what happens to the economy, stop bitching.

    1. Ivan, you are kidding, right? That the president has no influence on the economy? Wow, just wow, at your total ignorance or low IQ. Yes, the President DOES influence the economy, especially since we as a country have continued to swirl down the economic toilet for the past 2 1/2 yrs.

      Obama could ease up on domestic drilling. He could get the Gestapo EPA off the backs of those who want to produce our energy. He did NOT HAVE to give money to Brazil to help with THEIR drilling. Yes, those moves DO affect the economy.

      Obama continues to push Green Energy at the expense of what really can keep this country running. Yes, solar panels are nice in certain parts of the country, windmills do work, and battery operated cars may be in our future. However, Obama is pushing these as THE solution, while doing everything he can to destroy domestic drilling. Obama is a hypocrite for flying all over in Air Force One and the Michelle flying in another jet just four hours before? This is what is angering people….the rank stinking hypocrisy of these two, while others suffer. If Obama and Michelle were CONCERNED and DOING something for the American economy, people wouldn’t give a rat’s a** about what they eat or where they vacation.

  39. Keith: GREAT injection of sarcastic and symbolic humor!!! You rock, and provide the needed service of illiciting humor in these maddening times!

    But you missed one little thing: In addition to the corking fee, you must add in the cost of the two bottles of wine at $400 each! Just sayin….

  40. Wait a minute…I thought they were taking a family RV vacation out in the mid-west or something…Michelle just called 1-800-GO-RVING and reserved the Winnebago…just like any of us “normal folk” would do…

  41. Keep loving your Savior>While you do not have a job, your house is taken away, eating peas: he is playing golf, spending $50.000,00 a week for rent,eating lobster and all that comes along with, on tax payers expenses.Idiots, Ignorant s.Eat the product of your stupidity.

  42. I do not begrudge Obama or any president a vacation. I am however highly annoyed by his wasted presidency. I’m deeply dissapointed that he played to the lunatic left in the country. I would have thought that he would know that there were enough intelligent people left who couldn’t be fooled. The big surprise, however is that he is that dumb. He actually believed the crap they spoon fed him at Columbia and Harvard. The saddest part of the story is that he set race relations back 70 or 80 years. The flash mobs currently terrorizing our cities, beating up innocent whites, are a direct result of the moron he appointed as Attorney General.
