“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

While Americans struggle, the Obama's live like royalty

For the Obama's to go on a 17-day Hawaiian vacation odyssey this year, the American taxpayers are on the hook for over $4,000,000.

That Michelle and the girls couldn't wait a day and left early cost the taxpayers an additional $100,000. Also, rather than staying at usual Presidential housing, the Obama's have decided to stay down the block, closer to the beach with a canal behind the house. This means the Secret Service has to rent twice the housing to secure the home. So much for austerity and savings during a national recession. While many Americans are struggling to even have a Christmas, our entitled overlords, the Obama's, are living extravagantly like kings at our expense.

Here's the Obama's Christmas card this year. They should have sent out "Thank You" cards instead.

OK, as regular reader Issac gleefully pointd out, this is not the Obama's Christmas card. This bland, personless, boring room is the official "Holiday card".

Notice there's nothing signifying Christmas here, no tree, no nothing.

Pictured is the Obamas' family portrait. Their holiday (not Christmas) card features their dog, Bo, recumbant before a fireplace fire.

Really? The article I read about the expense of the Hawaiian vacation included this picture with a Christmas card caption. Whatever? It doesn't really matter.

Holiday card?

@David "Holiday card?"

So named in order not to offend Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Jews, Baha'is, Shintoists, Zoroastrians, Rastafarians or Scientologists.

The 2.1 billion Christians in the world? Piss on them.

Liberals think the idea of Christmas itself is offensive to Christmas non-observers, but the intent of the person who says, "Merry Christmas" to you isn't to offend you. Their intent is to say something nice to you and it should be received with the same intentions, regardless of whether you observe Christmas or not.
