Had Obama offered a Happy New Year greeting to America, he may have been answered: “Quack, quack”!”

Obama’s Hawaiian vacation tells a story in reverse

There’s a faint sound of quacking coming from the legendary Hawaiian surf.  It comes from the culture-war victory that tailed Obama all the way to Kailua when caving to public sentiment,  A&E brought Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson back to cable television.

Photos of Phil Robertson outdid Obama vacation ones.

According to AP only about two dozen people crowded in a roped-off area outside a nearby pizzeria,  in a tiny strip mall near the beach when Obama went with his two daughters to a local Kailua shop for shaved ice on Tuesday.

“I hope you guys have a great 2014,” Obama told the crowd.  As he left, he flashed a shaka gesture.” (Drudge Report, Jan. 1, 2014).

Two dozen people constitutes a crowd to AP.

The photo of Obama flashing the shaka gesture replaces the photo of Barack and Michelle looking gloomy as they watched Michelle’s brother Craig Robinson’s team, the Oregon State Beavers lose 83-71 to the happy-faced Akron Zips Basketball Team.

“The president ordered cherry and lemon-lime favors for his dessert, and then shook hands with some of the two dozen”  in the AP-described “crowd”.

The dwindling crowds and pictures from Obama vacations tell a story in reverse.  The mainstream media must be finally catching on to the “I-don’t-care-how-many-times-Obama-golfs-or-snorkels-on-vacation citizen sentiment.  We’ve come full circle from the Obama-inspired “I-don’t-care-about-America” to the “I-don’t-care-about-the-Obamas stance of the proletariat.

People know that Obama doesn’t need to be in D.C. to keep the limelight on himself.  While he holidays, the word ‘ObamaCare’ is out there doing the job for him.

Along with the words “selfie, “twerking” and “hashtag”, Michigan’s Lake Superior State University announced that “ObamaCare”, the nickname for the even more ridiculous named Affordable Care Act is on its 39th annual list of words “banished” from the language.

Like the arrogant self-centered, Obama had to rely on the “selfie” to get a picture to go viral from the Nelson Mandela Memorial.

There’s also a new tack to his plummeting approval ratings on the way.

After a year of seeing President Obama’s approval ratings plummet, the president’s pollster is offering a strikingly candid and pessimistic New Year’s resolution.

“Reporters should go the next year without reporting any public polling data,” Joel Benenson, president and CEO of Benenson Strategy group said…”Benenson explained that he thinks the polling often reported by news organizations lacks the proper context.” (Daily Caller, Dec. 31, 2013).

In other words, the president’s pollster is moving Obama’s plummeting approval ratings into the world of pretend where the rest of the president lives.

When the big plop from Obama hitting rock bottom comes, we won’t be reading about it from reporters, but we’ll all hear the plop just the same even with Artful Dodger Obama pretending otherwise.

Within days of their Monday return from Hawaii, the White House will be planning the big bash for Michelle’s 50th birthday on January 17.

Michelle calls it turning “fabulous 50”.  Talk about stretching the imaginary world of pretend.

According to White, the Obamas gave a Christmas address to the public at large on Dec. 25, but offered only silence for a New Year’s greeting. 

Had Obama offered a Happy New Year greeting to America, he may have been answered: “Quack, quack”!”
