Come Fly away Come Fly Away With Me; Obama’s 2012 Campaign Slogan

Come Fly away Come Fly Away With Me; Obama’s 2012 Campaign Slogan

In 2010 the Leader of the Regime flew Air Force One 172 times; that averages out to almost a trip every other day. In fact he jets around at our expense so much the pilots and crew complained to such an extent they had to add more crews to accommodate his Majesty’s zest for travel.

And the good news is…….the Propaganda Minister for the Regime told reporters in recent days he doesn’t intend to hang around the White House as much in 2012 as he did this year; WHAT? Correcto Mundo, the Propaganda Minister explained Obama intends to get out more because as everyone knows that midterm shellacking had nothing to do with him or his policies. That’s correct the reason the Democrats lost all those seats was not because of his Health Care Bill, over spending or any other Big Government policies rammed down our throats. Nope, according to Comrade Jay Carney, the reason they lost all those seats and control of the House was due to Obama not adequately explaining himself. So with only 373 days remaining in Obama’s never ending presidential campaign fire up Air Force One cause here we go!

And just look at what this never ending campaigning is costing We the People; Air Force One cost $181,757 per flight hour plus his entourage, Secret Service, local police overtime; a rough estimate of $8 million per trip! But he’s worth it right? After all what are we Oafs and Serfs here for if not to serve His Majesty and the Realm!

According to CBS’s Mark Knoller, not exactly your average Fox News Conservative analysis, Obama made 65 domestic trips in over 104 days coupled with his 6 trips to 8 foreign countries; you remember his famous Apology Tour don’t you? Add to this total 6 vacation trips all at the above average of $8 million per trip and well, you do the math. But remember we all must sacrifice for the good of the Realm! Wait that wasn’t what he said was it; apparently that was what he meant; do as I say not as I do; typical Elitist Position!

But all of us mere subjects should rejoice; in order to relax from all this strenuous travel His Majesty has managed to squeeze in over 72 rounds of golf through the summer of this year. Between those rounds of golf His Majesty managed to give 491 speeches over the past almost 2 years which averages out to 1.36 speeches per day! As Rickey Ricardo always said, Louuuuuucy you got some splaining to do! Well His Majesty has been attempting to splain away the fact he’s destroyed the economy through his Socialists Policies by continually blaming George Bush!

The leader of this Regime has spent over $100 million just on Air Force One along with an additional $100 million to accommodate his entourage. Some would say he’s living large like any other tin-pot dictator at the expense of his subjects and I’m one of the some!

So I’ll leave you with this final note; to all those who helped install this present Regime, “how’s that hope and change working out for you?” Instead of Heil Hitler we are left with Barrack Hussein Obama Muuuum-Muuum-Muum!

PP - Interesting hub as usual. You will most likely be met with much hate on this one. After all, our King is entitled to all of these perks at our expense. You do know that he didn't actually ride the bus on his bus tour don't you? Nope, he flew from town to town and the bus picked him up where the plane landed.

This gross waste of taxpayer money during this time of economic crisis should tell us what we need to know about our President, but many will justify this needless expense by our King.

Did you know that all previous presidents (still living) still get paid each year? They also get complete health coverage. Becoming a president is like winning the lottery because you would literally be set for life.

All previous Presidents acted like Presidents while in office; this one acts like a KING. As for the Perks that go along with the office so be it; that's not the subject of this hub; it's the waste while he's in office that infuriates me!

Thanks as always; I'm prepared for the flak that will undoubtedly come from all the Obama Apologists. But one thing they can't argue with is the facts I've laid out for them. As for the bus trip; you didn't expect his Royal Ass to sit astride a bus seat did you?

Hey man! Don't forget the cost of flying the buses when he goes on the bus tours. And they want to talk about cutting spending. Is Greyhound still running?

Hey Froggy

He should sieze upon that old Doritoes commercial; "munch all you want, we'll make more." Well in Barrackie Boo's case they should paraphrase----I'll spend all I want; we'll just print more!

It's working out exactly as Obama and company planned. Hope is gone and change is so far to the left that we all need chiropractors! Up and awesome!
