That means Merry Christmas (at least that's what Bing says). And at that price the Obama Christmas is sure to be really, really merry. ABC, via Newsbusters, reports on King Obama's royal vacation digs:
This conspicuous consumption might feel like a slap in the face to financially struggling Americans who are trying to have their own merry little Christmases. Oh well. Let them eat marked-down fruitcake.
Imagine the outrage if any Republican President went on vacation during a recession and spent $4,000 a night on accommodations. On ABC’s Good Morning America Wednesday, correspondent Yunji de Nies seemed to suggest that President Obama’s family will be spending such an amount renting expensive living space at an estate house in Hawaii for a two-week Christmas vacation. De Nies: "Christmas trees here aren't cheap – neither is staying in this $8.9 million house, which runs $4,000 a night. The Obamas rented this one and the two next door for family and friends. When you spend that kind of money, people pay attention to detail."
De Nies did not specify exactly how much is being spent or where the money is coming from, though the amount may even be significantly more than $4,000 a day as she related that "the two next door" were also being rented for family and friends of the Obamas. The ABC correspondent also recounted that the estate house overlooks a beach popular with royalty: "But it's the master bedroom and its breathtaking view that is the crown jewel. Kailua Beach has been ranked the island's best, a favorite of Hawaiian royalty."
Bonus: From Hot Air, hear President Obama call for fiscal responsibility.
I wonder how many chefs they brought along?
Remember his recent condemnation of "fat cats"?
