Michelle Obama: Do as I say, not as I do

My hat is off to Jake Tapper of ABC News for this enlightening story:

Since Barack is so busy with his golf game, he sent his wife, Michelle, to the Gulf of Mexico region in his stead. During a speech she gave, Michelle Obama urged us peasants to vacation along the Gulf of Mexico:
It is vacation time. Folks are looking for things to do with their kids, and this would be a great opportunity to do a few things -- help this community, send a different message about the extent of the spill, and also think long term about how the rest of the country can help this economy and the folks down here,” Mrs. Obama said at the Panama City Welcome Center.

Mrs. Obama said the word needs to get out to Americans that there are “beautiful beaches” along the Gulf Coast and it’s a great time for families to come down with their kids.
Now, it just so happens that the Obamas are going on a vacation themselves over this coming weekend. Where are they going?
The Obama family will be taking a mini-vacation of their own this weekend, but instead of going to the Gulf Coast they are traveling to Maine’s Mount Desert Island, home of Acadia National Park.
President Obama famously said that he "will not rest" until this oil debacle in the Gulf is solved. If he is going to go back on that promise by resting after all - as he already has on numerous occasions - the least he could do would be to set an example and spend his weekend on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Good leadership there, President Obama!

Heard Mark Levin's "Will not rest." audio track? Sincerely, this man should not be President.
