Yep, a half million Americans filed for unemployment last week during Obama’s “Recovery Summer”. That can only mean one thing for the won: Time for a luxury vacation on the millionaire’s playground of Martha’s Vineyard! He might even do some “work” there!
President Barack Obama is planning to hike, laze at the beach and visit an ice cream parlor or two while vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard, but his spokesman realizes world affairs may interfere.
Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton told reporters Tuesday aboard Air Force One that “the president is definitely going to spend a little time recharging his batteries.” Obama and his family arrive Thursday on the island off Massachusetts.
But Burton joked that the White House press corps should “think that this is going to be the hardest that they will have ever have worked in their entire lives.”
Oh, the humanity. That poor press corpse. They’ll have to chase the won from one ice cream parlor to another and might get sand in their shoes at the photo-op for the beach play!
You poor, newly unemployed can at last take comfort in the wall-to-wall “news” of the first family “recharging” their batteries while you fill out forms and wait for your check!
Doncha feel better already?
Thank heavens for Hope and Change!
