Fresh Off Another Vacation News Story Asks the Important Question: Should Obama Get a Raise?

Posted by on Feb 19, 2013 at 8:02 am

Well, maybe it’s not exactly a news story since it’s written by someone from a place called the National Constitution Center and was picked up here.  But if job performance is the criteria for earning a raise, then the boob in the White House should be cutting the taxpayers some rebate checks right about now.

President Barack Obama’s salary pales in comparison to the average CEO. But does the president really need a raise? The historical data says “yes,” but the potential big payoff for newer presidents says “probably not.”

In 2011, the average Fortune 500 company leader made $12 million a year. President Obama has a $400,000 annual salary, gets a $50,000 expense account, and a really cool house to live in. But he has to buy his own food in some cases.

The debate over presidential pay dates back to the Prohibition era, when people were shocked in 1930 when baseball star Babe Ruth was given a salary that paid more than President Herbert Hoover’s.

The guy takes multi-million dollar vacations every other month. Maybe a better question should be: Should Obama pay for his own vacations?

Speaking of lavish vacations, his wife and kids sure are living large on our dime out in Aspen.

One witness told us, “Michelle was with two big groups and were in Aspen all weekend. Both girls were skiing, one in blue and one in a purple coat, and black pants. Michelle was in a navy ski suit. There were crowds of security guards dressed in black around them, all parked off the bunny slopes. Michelle and the girls were mainly going out each morning before the lifts opened.”

Since nobody in the media bothers to ask, we will: Who’s paying the tab for these two large groups?

    The media has top men working on this. The dear leader isn’t being loved or paid enough. We have failed our dear leader.

    Obviously, if we don’t give him a raise, we are racists who don’t respect the dignity of the office…

    VACATION? Are you serious? Most jobs you get ONE WEEK vacation after 5 years you get TWO WEEKS. King obama takes one every month and now his MOOCH of a wife takes seperate vacations.

    If Moochelle can’t go with King obama she should pay for her vacations and not the Taxpayer. For someone who hates the United States so much she sure loves spending the Taxpayers Money.

    “Raise” my ass! Every taxpayer in the USA should get a rebate on their 2013 taxes for even paying his skinny ass the last four years.

    He hasn’t done an honest days work in his life. Consider that he’s skated by via Affirmative Action during his early days as a student and “teacher” and by playing at being a lawyer back in the nineties.

    Since then he’s been living off the government tit by being a professional politician and community organizer. He doesn’t know the meaning or understand the concept of a day’s work. He’s the biggest fraud in the history of frauds.

    Here’s another big fat Fuck You to all the libs and democraps for foisting his ass on America!
