Obama's Sacrifice For The Holidays

Via: Gateway Pundit
Back in January, before he signed his failed $787 billion stimulus bill into law, Barack Obama told America that everyone must sacrifice for the greater good. Everyone must have “some skin in the game.”

Check out Obama's sacrifice for the holidays, while you're freezing your butts off and pinching your pennies...

The president feels your pain.
The country is experiencing the worst recession since the Great Depression. The unemployment rate is at a 26 year record high at 10.0%. But, that didn’t stop the Obama family from renting an $8.9 million Hawaiian mansion for the holidays.

And while your at it, check out MO's new fashion statement in shoes. Add these to the $540 sneakers she wore to a food bank.

Kristinn at Free Republic reported that First Lady Michelle was photographed last night in Hawaii wearing $635 per pair designer shoes by Maison Martin Margiela.

The shoe style is called “Leather open toe flat pumps.” It features a “thin nude leather strap across the top of the toe.”
Remember: Everyone must sacrifice.
The First Family feels your pain.


  1. Do you realize just to rent the $8.9 million house for ten days while they are on vacation is about the equivilent of 10 percent of his yearly salary as President? When you figure in taxes, it's a lot more than 10% of his take home pay. But hey, the rest of you must live within your means because Barack Obama said so.

  2. Just about the time I think I havve heard it all....

  3. Dear Lady,

    Just another Immelda Marcos work in progress I figger.

    We remember how the Phillipines took care of their being neglected by leaders. Hopefully ours will peacefully accomplish the same, in due time.

    Working on my blog site, so keystrokes are precious, I'm reading but not responding for a while.

    Thanks for being a Flag bearer.


  4. I think Obama should sacrifice and give up his job. This way he would save us all alot of heartache and trouble. I don't think Obama knows the true meaning of sacrifice. He makes me sick.

  5. As usual the left refuses to lead by example. Not a surprise, but we're supposed to take it on the nose for their policies while they live the good life...right?

  6. Bill:
    And how about the other 2 houses he rented next door for family & friends?

  7. WalkingWithHIM:
    I'm thinking you haven't heard nothin' yet! We have 3 more years to go.

  8. jadedfellow:
    I knew you'd start a blog. Good luck with it...the more voices out there, the better.

  9. Teresa:
    Ain't no way he's giving up his cushy job. He doesn't have to do anything and he gets awards and kudos just for being HIM.

  10. Matt:
    They are the elite and we are the peons. Keep repeating that over and over again. Eventually you will understand. Now get back to work...there are taxes to pay.

  11. To be fair, so long as it is his money and not your taxes that is paying for this I can't see what the objection is.
    Mind you our own Tony Blair has increased his personal fortune buying houses like playing monopoly though some question where he got the money in the first place. Certainly not from his modest Government salaries.

  12. banned:
    True, if it's his money he can do whatever he chooses to do with it. People in the U.S. are ticked off because the economy stinks, Obama tells us all we must sacrifice, yet he splurges on vacations, trips around the world, parties at the White House every Wednesday, etc., etc. A little modesty on his part would do a lot to show Americans that he empathizes with them. Anyone in his position who has control over a country and it's people needs to be more empathetic, even if it's just for show...we know he doesn't feel any empathy...elitists never do.

  13. This is such a disgrace, as is everything about obama and his "family". He really makes me ill. I hope you have a lovely New Year, TCL.

  14. Hi Bunni:
    I hope you have a happy & healthy 2010.

  15. All pigs are equal

    Some are more equal than others...

  16. LL:
    True, and Capitol Hell is the pig pen.
