Obama's 4th Hawaii vacation

Leave it to the vacationing Hypocrite in Chief to display about as much hypocrisy as humanly possible. Not only is President Obama a hypocrite, he seems to be utterly proud of it.

As he is enjoying his 4th Hawaii vacation in a home costing him $3,500 a night, but his vacation costing taxpayers some $7 million to $10 million dollars because of the cost of Air Force One, Air Force transport planes, Air Force fighter planes, Secret Service home rentals and meals, local security, advance security details and incidentals, he has the incomparable audacity and hubris to say that Republicans "Went home for the holidays" and they are "just plain cruel" for not extending an additional 3 months of benefits to the unemployed, all of how have already received 26 weeks of benefits from their respective states.

To press his point, the President also said, "We don’t abandon our fellow Americans when times get tough." I guess that is unless you are at an American consulate in Benghazi, Libya and call for help...repeatedly.

President Obama made these cutting and propaganda filled remarks as part of his weekly YouTube address on Saturday.

Read the pertinent part of the transcript below and watch the shamefully divisive video after that.

Just a few days after Christmas, more than one million of our fellow Americans lost a vital economic lifeline – the temporary insurance that helps folks make ends meet while they look for a job. Republicans in Congress went home for the holidays and let that lifeline expire. And for many of their constituents who are unemployed through no fault of their own, that decision will leave them with no income at all.

We make this promise to one another because it makes a difference to a mother who needs help feeding her kids while she’s looking for work; to a father who needs help paying the rent while learning the skills to get a new and better job. And denying families that security is just plain cruel. We’re a better country than that. We don’t abandon our fellow Americans when times get tough – we keep the faith with them until they start that new job.
