No Shortage of Vacations for the Obamas – Next Up Williamsburg!


Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous!

Boy, the Obama family sure does enjoy a lot of vacations. With all the turmoil at home and abroad – a government about to shut down, three wars two wars and a kinetic military action, a nation on the brink of insolvency, gas prices going up, wages going down, etc. – you’d think the President would find it important to stick around Washington, DC. Even if he does nothing, maybe he could at least try to pretend he’s some sort of leader. But no. Between his campaign stops, basketball, golf and vacations there’s little time left over for anything else. This weekend the Obama’s are going to Williamsburg. At least it’s a little closer to DC. But it won’t spare any headaches, since the FAA is establishing a no-fly zone while the first family  whoops it up.

President Obama and the First Family are planning to visit the area this weekend in what the White House described Wednesday as a “long-planned family trip to Colonial Williamsburg.”

But the trip might get grounded if a government shutdown can’t be averted by Republicans and Democrats in Congress.

On Thursday morning, the Federal Aviation Administration established a no-fly zone over Williamsburg that will be in place from Friday through Monday. Jessica Wharton, spokeswoman for the Newport News-Williamsburg International Airport, said the no-fly zone will not affect the arrival and departure times at the airport for this weekend.

Consider the Obama’s lavish lifestyle a public service. While so many Americans suffer through this rotten economy and endure the inflation caused by his policies, we can still live vicariously through the Obama family. Lucky us.
