Conservatives Tripping about Obama's Vacation - Updated

~ From Rev. Al Sharpton on MSNBC ~
We all love summer - the fireworks, the barbeque, the beach.
And we're seeing the return of a Right-Wing favorite: attacking the
President's Vacation.
This year the Obamas are heading for Martha's Vineyard.
Representative Chris Stewart of Utah called it "tone deaf" claiming
"most of the people in my district could never afford
to visit Martha's Vineyard,
a place that has the reputation of being for the Elite."
That's right - when the President isn't a "Thug," he's a "Snob."

But Wait a Minute . . .

Washington Examiner: Greta Van Susteren Furious over Obama's "Staged" Golf Pics
“Why would the president do this for the cameras? It’s one thing to take a vacation but is this pose shoving it down the throats of the American people?” she asked. “Many are out of work. They can’t afford to spend the day working on their golf game in one of the most expensive places to vacation. Is this what leadership looks like?”

Van Susteren was joined by former Congressman Allen West, R-Fla., who agreed that the photo was “bad optics” for a leader.

“Greta, let me tell you something,” West said. “It’s like 133 degrees in Southern Afghanistan and guys have on all of their gear, helmets and what have you. They don’t get to take a five-week vacation.”
