Press Secy Jay Carney: Vacation For He, Not For GWB

So Dear Leader’s lead mouthpiece, Jay Carney, had this to say about his boss’ imminent vacation in the wake of the economy heading right down the proverbial toilet, and the TOTUS wagging his annoying, judgmental, hypocritical finger at all of us to quit making “enough money,” and start working on that whole “social justice” nonsense. And hey, quit listening to those terrorists in the Tea Party, cause guess what, my brother, Martha’s Vineyard is callin, ya dig?

In case you’re wondering, President Obama still plans to vacation with his family later this month on Martha’s Vineyard, his spokesman said today.

Press Secretary Jay Carney said he doubts the American people would begrudge the president some time off with his family, even in the midst of an economic downturn — and besides, it is likely to be in part a working vacation.

“There’s no such thing as a presidential vacation,” Carney said. “The presidency travels with you.”

But check out Carney the Waterboy’s juicy little piece of hypocrisy, back in the days when he was suffering from that widespread Bush Derangement Syndrome which seemed to afflict most of the MSM:

The image-makers who advise George W. Bush got what they wanted this week: a photograph, taken by the Associated Press and published in seemingly every newspaper in the country, of the President lifting a telephone pole as he “helped maintain” a nature trail in Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park.

Back in July, when they were planning what the President should do during his month-long vacation (as part of their effort to persuade the public that he wasn’t actually on vacation in the generally accepted sense of what vacation means — i.e., having fun and not working), the image-makers hit upon a clever idea. Every week, they decided, they would send the President somewhere outside Texas for a day or a day and a half to hold an event of some kind in which he would mix with “real Americans.”

The events would have little in common, except for the fact that they would be held far from Washington in the middle of August. But to tie them together, to make it seem as though the President were engaged in some concentrated activity of presidential purpose, they would name the entire series of trips — together with his down time at his ranch in Crawford, Texas — the “Home to the Heartland” tour.

Guess what, Jay? You’re not only a useful idiot, you’re pretty much one of the vilest, parasitical creatures presently infesting the White House. Valerie Jarrett, for all of her faults, at least doesn’t have the amorality to stand up in front of the entire country every day and pretend the same garbage you spewed yesterday has somehow been forgotten just because you hooked your wagon to a soon-to-be-cast-upon-the ash-heap-of -history self-absorbed, narcissistic sociopath.

Yeah, Jay. It’s called a “search engine.” Look into it, sport.
