A Perfect Snapshot of Obama Legacy: Lousy Economy and Michelle Goes Skiing

0

Headlines: “Economic Confidence Index Down Sharply…” followed by “Michelle O Weekend Ski Trip Cost $57,000… in Transportation Alone.” That pretty much says it all.

Gallup’s Economic Confidence Index fell six points last week indicating that Americans confidence in the Obama-conomy is waning quickly. Here’s what that looks like.

That story was followed by the perfect picture of just how far out of touch the Obama’s are with the American people. In February, Michelle went skiing in Aspen and needless to say that wasn’t covered by the major media. It was, however, covered by judicial watch thanks to the Freedom of Information Act.

Michelle spent Valentine’s Day in Aspen with her daughters while the president was off raising money in California. We don’t know the full cost of the trip, but you paid $57,068.80 to fly her and the girls to Aspen. Did you get a thank you note?

Just for perspective median US household income is $52,000 per year. That’s less than it was when Barack Obama took office.

And the final point of perfection about this story is this reflection on Al Gore and the Global Warming Nazis and their gloom and doom predictions.

1.)Scientists predicted in 2000 that kids would grow up without snow.It was 14 years ago now when UK climate scientists argued that global warming would make snowfall a “a very rare and exciting event”.

“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” Dr. David Viner, a scientist with the climatic research unit at the University of East Anglia, told the UK Independent in 2000.

To Obama (and his MiniMe, John Kerry), global warming is the biggest disaster we’re facing.  No more snow.

Well, if that prediction had come true US taxpayers would be $57,000 better off.

As we said.  A perfect snapshot.  Clueless on the economy (are we do for another “focus on job creation?”), living like royalty, and being duped by every progressive agenda item there is.
