Obama’s latest mini-vacation follows in the wake of his lavish Christmas/ New Year holiday on Kailua Beach in Oahu, Hawaii, which cost U.S. taxpayers an estimated $7 million.

… According to [White House Correspondent Keith] Koffler,”the total cost to taxpayers of Obama’s vacations to Hawaii since becoming president is likely in excess of $20 million, and possibly much, much more.”  … The optics certainly don’t look good for a president who has in the past called on Americans to make sacrifices, while blatantly refusing to do so himself … This is the latest demonstration of an overwhelming culture of impunity in a celebrity-obsessed Obama White House, frequently coupled with a disturbing lack of transparency that would be roundly condemned by the…

    AH! You mean the answer to your first comment. I was working off my “notification” button, and memory as to whatever was in the comments block prior. Yes, they are excrement. The word “excitement” was snark. Fear not, we are not at cross purposes here. It was said with a sarcastic note.
