Executive Director of Libertarian Party Carla Howell has called US President Barack Obama’s job in the White House “damaging and disruptive.”
“When President Obama is working in the office, he is doing more damage than good,” she told Press TV on Sunday.
“He [Obama] is raising taxes, raising government spending to a dangerous level, causing further unemployment in America, meddling in foreign affairs and causing disruptions and unrest in foreign countries,” Howell added.
She also said, critically, that many Americans hope the US president could spend the rest of his presidential term on vacation, referring to his latest trip to Martha’s Vineyard.
The trip comes amid debates over the budget and the US government's surveillance and the temporary closure of some American embassies across the world.
“He could bring the entire Congress with him, the House and the Senate, so that they could be on vacation too because together the Democrats and Republicans in Congress and in the White House are doing far more damage than good,” Howell said.
Obama and his family are spending their vacation at a $7.6 million resort home. Security will be tight on the island as the president is travelling with dozens of staffers.
"By going to Martha's Vineyard, he opens himself up to criticism that he is not as sensitive as he should be to Americans having hard times," journalist Ken Walsh said.
