Donald Trump and Mike Pence were in Louisiana the other day surveying the damage and talking to the people there. As for Hillary?… She had no scheduled rallies or campaign stops until today, but she’s not going either. That’s a big mistake right there. It’s smart of Trump to detour to flood ravaged Louisiana and lift the people up and give them hope, further bolstering his populist image. Hillary and Obama have only further solidified an elitist image in the minds of the people.
Obama announced today that he would be cutting his nineteen day vacation in Martha’s Vineyard short so he could visit the region, but I think that’s a bit too late, don’t you? The liberals who criticized George W. Bush’s response to Katrina (including the President himself) would’ve roasted Bush even more had he responded to Katrina the same way Obama responded to Louisiana.
It’s even more pathetic when you consider what else Obama has interrupted his vacations for in the past.
Two years ago, Obama interrupted his annual August family vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts for a two-day trip to Washington, D.C. that was clouded in mystery.
Even as controversy continues to surround Obama for his extremely delayed response, no one in the media has brought up Obama’s 2014 interruption of his vacation. Heck, I doubt he wouldn’t have even responded at all had he been criticized for not doing so.
So what did he leave for? CBS news spilled the beans on it, and as it was summarized on the Rush Limbaugh Show:
RUSH: We now know, ladies and gentlemen, why Obama went back to Washington, left Martha’s Vineyard, split from the vacation. Major Garrett had the details on CBS This Morning.
GARRETT: In addition to golf, the president’s vacation scorecard includes three dinners out, two beach days, one bike ride, a jazz concert, and a fundraiser for Senate Democrats. Not to mention a five-hour bachelor party Monday in the Washington home of former White House chef Sam Kass.
RUSH: A-ha! That’s what it is. He had to come back for a bachelor party. He left his own vacation — one set of parties and the golf course — for another party. He didn’t announce that until after it was over, and it wasn’t even announced as a bachelor party. It was just “a five-hour dinner party” when it was first mentioned. No bachelor party aspect to it.”
Real nice. So he can interrupt a vacation for that, but not 40,000 Americans who’ve lost their homes. Obama has blown over $70 million on vacations (and that was just as of last year). You can rebuild a lot of homes with that kind of money.
