The Democratic base is growing increasingly frustrated with former President Barack Obama’s actions after leaving office, including a seemingly endless tour of millionaire and billionaire luxury retreats, according to Democrats and activists contacted by Fox News.
Sit back for a minute and mark this day in your calendar. I’m about to defend Obama.
Point 1: He isn’t anyone’s president anymore. His time is done. It isn’t his job to energize the base, win votes, influence politics, etc. His job is done, over. He no longer needs to pander to the masses.
Point 2: The man has already done numerous speeches and I am sure he’ll have butt tons more coming down. He’s got books out, and I’m sure he’s got more coming down there, too. I don’t know if he got any money by questionable means, that isn’t for me to decide or speculate on. But he’s got the money. It’s his. He can do with it as he pleases.
Point 3: Your opinion on how he spends the money, what kind of vacations he is taking, etc. are completely irrelevant. As long as the tax payer isn’t funding the damn things, it isn’t your business. I’m sure we are paying something because I’m sure he has security with him, but the bulk of it is coming from his own pocket now. That part is none of your business.
Point 4: The only reason people whine about how “rich” and “luxurious” someone else’s lifestyle is is because they are jealous as all get out. That’s the problem with 98% of the people who complain about the “1%” and demand anyone making more than $250,000 a year pay their “fair share,” which seems to increase exponentially every time it is brought up. They aren’t making that kind of money and are jealous as all get out. Look, I’m not making nearly that much, either. My jobs have all been pretty low paying. The difference is, I don’t begrudge anyone else their wealth. It’s yours. Live the life.
Point 5: Unless you can prove to me that he is stealing from someone else or hurting someone, I don’t give a crap about how much he is spending on vacations. And you shouldn’t, either. If you are tired of seeing the pictures, stop following him. No one is forcing you to look.
Point 6: If you are jealous and can admit that to yourself, then go out and get you some. It may take a lot of work, and you may never actually get there. But no one is stopping you from trying.
