Look! Obama's returning 5% of his salary!

He's one of us!!! He's making common cause with federal workers who may have to make a similar paycut because of that nasty bourgeois Republican sequestration (that was only incidentally initiated by President Obama). In fact, the President is a true proletariat, a comrade!

But wait, there's more! There's his incessant golfing with Wall Street buddies, his vacation of the month club, and, well ... THIS PIECE from Richard Cohen at the PostPartisan (April 4, 2013):
What’s the difference between $789,674 and $769, 674? Will the kids not go to camp? Is Hawaii out of the question for next summer? ...

President Barack Obama drives a golf cart with Robert Wolf, former chairman of UBS AG’s Americas unit,
at Mink Meadows Golf Club in Vineyard Haven on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts.

... The president was apparently responding to the symbolism of him living like a pasha while asking others to sacrifice. I understand. But his taking a wee haircut on his salary is just a PR stunt from the White House that’s more insulting than it is empathetic.
Let's face it: the President of the people, of transparency and hope and change, has become the first presidential winner of the Nobel Peace Prize with his own kill list, living in some ways outside or above the law. He and his wife are living as emperor and empress, Michelle with something like 40 ladies in waiting, while Calvin Coolidge had a milk cow on the White House lawn. Put that in your bong pipe and smoke it, Berry.

Oh, but I forget, Michelle calls herself a "busy [virtually] single mother"! (see below):

Truly pathetic that everyone that voted for this guy doesn't see the incompetence, the smoke 'n mirrors, the narcissism, the immaturity.

Now that they have successfully lied about who he is so he would be re-elected, the collectivists can now unburden themselves of some of the shame a few of them rightly experience for having publicly lied for him but criticising the mulatto mountebank over such a soft target is confession on the cheap for these creeps.

Who expected anything else?
