As you probably know, every year, Barack Obama is flying to Hawaii for Christmas. There is nothing wrong with that except he spends $35 million of tax payers money to do this. This year that number will probably grow as Obama is currently on a 17-day trip to the state with his family.
This is unacceptable!
On the other hand, here is what George Bush did on Christmas:
“Here’s the thing: In December, we never left Washington, D.C., until the day after Christmas,” journalist Joseph Curl wrote for the Washington Times. “Never. Mr. Bush and his wife, Laura, would always depart the White House a few days before the holiday and hunker down at Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland.”
After a few years of this, Curl finally asked a member of Bush’s administration why the president chose to spend Christmas in the White House.
“I still remember what she said,” Curl wrote. “’So all of us can be with our families on Christmas.’”
“Who was ‘us’?” Curl asks in his writing. “Hundreds and hundreds of people, that’s who. Sure, the reporters who covered the president, but also dozens and dozens on his staff, 100 Secret Service agents, maybe more, and all of those city cops required whenever the president’s on the move in D.C.”
This just shows you how much of a bigger person Bush was than Obama. Unlike Obama, Bush was a President that put the needs of other Americans ahead of his own. He was always there for the ordinary people.
I know only one thing… I can’t wait for Obama to leave office.
SHARE if you agree with me.
