A Private Jet And A Car Care Tool **Updated**

One would be hard pressed these days to not know that many people in this country are struggling. New Unemployment claims continue to be over 400,000 weekly, and unemployment benefits have been extended to 99 weeks (yes, almost 2 years). The DOW continues to hover around 10,000.

Home foreclosures are skyrocketing. People are struggling, they are suffering, they continue to lose their homes, and their jobs. The Gulf area has been particularly hard hit, as one can imagine, for an area that depends on fishing and tourism.

Which makes this piece of information all the more maddening.

As you most likely know, the Obamas have been on vacation this weekend. No, no, not to the Gulf Coast, despite both Obamas suggesting regular Americans should go there. No, they went to Maine. But they were not the only ones who went to Maine. Their dog, Bo, also went to Maine. On his own plane. I kid you not (H/t to my friend, Nunly, for providing this link).

Oh, how I wish I was making this up, but it was reported in the local paper there:
Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass. [snip]

Wait - are we being punked? Does Ashton Kutcher own this newspaper or something? How else to explain flying a dog on his OWN jet with a few staffers, including Obama's personal aide, Reggie Love? Why were they not both with the Obamas?? That just doesn't make any sense to me. As an animal lover, if I am taking my animals somewhere with me, then they are WITH me. I know these jets had to be smaller than AF 1, but for heavens sake, it isn't like Bo is some Bull Mastiff or something. Sheesh.

And that makes the following product all the more timely. This video has been cropping up all over the internet this weekend, and for good reason. I consider this a PSA, though the disclaimer is I/we do not endorse or promote any sales of this item. This is purely for entertainment value. And entertaining it is:



I love that it will also remove Obama Bumper Stickers from a Prius. Too funny. And I have to say, I have noticed a lot fewer Obama stickers over the past few months, so clearly there is a market (again, not promoting the product or sales thereof).

After this most recent display of the complete and utter out of touch mentality of the Obamas - both of them - I am guessing I will see fewer Bumper Stickers still. At least, I hope I will. Just another indicator that people are finally coming to their senses in this country, and not a minute too late.

Come on, November...

Update: A friend let me know that there were some other staffers on the jet beside just Bo and his "handler." Apparently, they had to use smaller jets to fly into the area of Maine they were visiting. But, STILL, why wasn't Bo on the plane with his people???

Do they have a tool that will remove Obama's bony ass from office?

ROTFLMAO - good question, ME! I would say keeping thugs away from the polling places, but our Department of Justice seems to think that's okay...Oh, I know - making sure the caucuses aren't corrupted by systematic fraud - oh, wait - the DNC thinks that's fine and dandy, too.

Hmmm. Well, sad to say, I think what will get Obama out of office is his unwillingness to not run again because being president is "hard work..."

I'm not so sure, Amy, he gets all those perks like the best golf courses, inviting a bunch of rock stars and movie stars over for dinner, vacations all over the world for the family and dog...the list goes on.

And he didn't have to lift a finger to get where he's at...if his grades were anything to brag about, we would know but instead he has the under lock and key. He never worked an honest day in his life and all he had to do was play the race card to get it all. Pretty sweet, eh?

Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

Well, you have a point there, ME - a bunch of them, actually. Hmmmm.

CBSNews is trying to make it seem like Obama has vacationed far less than Bush did - don't know how he's counting the days, but here is the link: http://newsbusters.org/blogs/brent-baker/2010/07/17/cbs-s-reid-can-t-resist-contrasting-obama-s-vacation-time-bush-s

I guess it all depends on what the definition of "vacation" is...

Oh, dear. Dang, ME - my little glimmer of hope just went out.

Rev.Amy- Of course the MSM is back in the Obama camp, I don't think they ever really leave it. They do just enough Obama bashing to make it look like they're "fair and balanced", but in reality, they are just throwing us a bone.

The thing about the vacations is, when Bush went on vacations, it was either Camp David or his ranch in Texas. The taxpayers weren't footing the bill so his family could travel all over the world and live the good life. Heck, you know I was no fan of George Bush's but Obama actually makes him look like an over-achiever.

And I hate to make the morning worse for you, but read Krauthammer's commentary about the "Net effect of 18 months of Obamaism"...scary and calculated. He said basically the same thing I've been saying, Obama doesn't give a rats ass if Congress and the Senate lose the House. It will make it easier for him to win in 2012 that way. And to make it worse, if we think it's bad now, wait until Obama gets a European style value-added tax through. We're going to be paying higher taxes up the kazoo and Obama will be spending more of our tax dollars on his vacations and golf games. We may just have four more years of this asswipe in office.

(Maybe I should have warned you to get the barf bag ready before I wrote that.) Sigh....

If the Republicans don't get someone better than the old dried up candidates like Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, and Huckabee to run for President, we can count on Obama to be our next Prez. Even though many Dems left the party and went Independent, doesn't mean we want to go back to those guys again either. I don't even think I could vote at all if my choice was Obama or Gingrich. I hate both of them!

Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

Dammit, Mary Ellen - I had just eaten!! Sheesh...

I agree with you, though - I think the MSM is carrying water for Obama, too, even if some of them try to pretend otherwise from time to time.

I am not sure how Reid is adding up Obama's time off, because he seems to have spent a fair amt of time at Camp David. And he has played 41 - FORTY-ONE - rounds of golf since becoming prez. http://www.whitehousedossier.com/2010/07/16/obama-played-41-rounds-golf-president/

Like you said, he gets access to the best golf courses...

And I agree that I cannot vote for Romnney, Gingrich, or Huckabee. Unless some miracle happens and Hillary does decide to run, which I seriously doubt, yeah - the RNC is going to have to do a helluva lot better than those 3 guys.

Sigh.

You are SO right abt the VAT, too. Isn't i remarkable how much Obama has screwed up this country in such a short time, with Pelosi and Reid doing his bidding? Just remarkable. And frightening. Again, I thought it was bad with Bush...

I also noticed that the pictures of Obama, Michelle and the kids was minus the dog. You never see them with that dog. I think the poor thing is being totally handled by someone else and only taken out with the Obama family for an occasional photo-op. I think that whole family is incapable of caring about anything but themselves.

Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

Oh, I agree - they could care less abt that dog. Someone said at NQ that Bo isn't welcome on the regular jet because he had accidents. That dog is old enough to be fully housebroken at this juncture. They don't treat him like a regular pet, that's for sure. He's just another trophy...

Great post, Rev. Amy!
Sorry I've been "absent"...but I'm back!
Keep up the great work here.

Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

Hey, Nazareth Priest! So great to *see* you!!

And thank you - I appreciate it!

I hope things have been going well for you. How nice to hear from you! -D
