    To both sides: politicians LOVE you. Not because of your ideological beliefs, but because of the partisan strife you create bickering amongst yourselves. As long as you're surfing Google for counterpoints to each others comments, you're not paying attention to what's really going on, which quite frankly has zero to do with who is sitting in the Oval Office. You can count on your hands how many seats have changed hands in the House, Senate, and Treasury in the last 20 years. Please tell me the whole of America is not really this naive...

    And that's the problem. They are elitists. People who go to Camp David are serious people who work through vacations. President Obama likes vacations, campiegning but hates working. He's lazy.

    So I guess he'll just have to be cool.

    George Bush wouldn't know a lavish vacation if it bit him in the butt. We don't have an abundance of elitists here in Texas. Common folk if you get my drift.

    On a bright note I notice a Texas Judge took Obama to the wood shed for shooting off his big mouth about the Supreme Court. Now that's funny.

    as far as the bush family vacations i suggest to google it . dont take my word on it
    as far as the federal judge hes just a federal judge looking for 15 minutes of fame the white house has a legal dept that makes the o j simpson legal team look like a bunch of amateurs and when he said what he said he knew what he was saying , remember that obama is also a very smart lawyer .

    Bush. a serious person? are you joking ? and please tell me how Obama is lazy. its astonishing to me that the Rep have the odasity to talk crap about our Pres after Bush the worst Pres by far in history the guy who ruined our economy and stated a war based off lies and did nothing good in his 8 years 4 of which he should not even have been the Pres since he lost the election and just decided to steal the presidency and failed the american people so bad just got out of office 4 years ago

    That is your opinion. Obama in my opinion is by far the worst pres in history. And just to point out one fact that proves he is - Obama has spent more taxpayer (twice more in fact) money than the previous 43 Presidents COMBINED!!!! We do not have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem. And just so you know. I am not a Bush supporter. I am against the Patriot act, NDAA, No child left behind, Un Declared Wars (All Un Declared Wars), I am Against ILLEGAL immigration (I am for LEGAL immigration) I think Bush spent too much also, however Obama has spent more in 4 years than Bush did in 8 years. Obama is covering up the Fast and Furious scandal. (not proven as of yet) but why after almost 2 years of investigation he decides to now invoke Executive Privilege? Obama is also ( in my opinion ) covering up the Benghazi Libya issue. I could go on and on. He is a Marxist and dangerous to our Country's well being. If you want to argue about the fact that he is a Marxist don't bother I have done the research that the Mainstream Liberal media that you bow down to did not do. EVERY person, mentor or influence in Obama's life are Marxists and Communists. That is a Fact. And given the influence of most of a his life of Marxism it is quite impossible to believe he is anything but a Marxist.

    First of all btwn reagan and both bush they accumulated 10 trillion in debt
    Chart enclosed
    Obama is the only president since the depression of 1929 that took over a country unemploying 875.000 people a month for a total of 8 million
    The only president that inhereted 375.000 a month in foreclosures for a total of 5 million
    Not to mention a bankrupted peniless banking system
    Not to metion a stock market that lost 7000 points in one month 50 percent of its value
    Not to mention inhereted 2 unpaid wars on a credit card
    Not to mention 11 trillion in debt with 1 trillion in interest per year
    Not to mention corporate bunkrupcies
    -----------------------------...
    Lets talk about iraq ,no weapons of mass destruction ever found and iraq had nothing to do with 9/11 were over 4000 kids died for no reason and 10s of thousands were injured
    Lets talk about reagan and the 280 marines murdered in beirut because he didnt want to listen to his military advisors to move them and ordered them to stay put
    And if obama was a marxist communist muslim. He had 4 years to prove it and no republican in senate or in congress not even fox news ever accused him of the fact
    And the liberal media that you talk about is an excuse by you of not digging into the real facts
    I hope you re not that stupid to believe that the obamas spend 1.2 billion a year on themselves

    Who Pays for Obama's Vacations? And Other Whining About Obama Vacations

    Update Aug. 18, 2011. It's that time of year, the time to knock Obama for taking a vacation--as if he could really do that. Once again, it's CBS's annual vacation day report: Obama has taken 61 days so far, Reagan took 121 at the same point in time, Bush, 200. WATCH

    Every Obama vacation it's the same thing, a bunch of self-righteous fools run their mouths all over the internet saying that Obama's vacations are taxpayer funded and that Obama goes on a lot of vacations. Wrong on both.


    I've noticed that our worthless media outlets haven't made any attempts at reporting on the presidential travel policy. There's just a lot of misinformation out there from people trying to manipulate other people (and blatant racism--just read the comments on Michelle's trip to Spain at FoxNation. It seems a black first lady isn't allowed quite the same freedom as a white first lady. Never has there been so much fuss over a first lady's vacation. Yes, Laura Bush vacationed with an entourage as well).
    Here is what I found out:

    Obama's vacations have been far fewer than Bush's.
    Factcheck.org lists Obama's vacations so far.

    Here is what I found out:

    Obama's vacations have been far fewer than Bush's.
    Factcheck.org lists Obama's vacations so far.
    Bo doesn't fly in his own plane.
    As far as Michelle Obama's four-day Spain vacation--the Obamas pay for it because it's a private trip. From the White House press briefing:

    Q Okay, one last thing real quick. Just to get it on the record, the First Lady’s trip to Spain with Sasha, what portion of that is paid by taxpayers and what portion by --

    MR. GIBBS: I would point you over to the First Lady’s office. It’s a private trip and is being paid for that way.
    If you want a full breakdown on presidential, first lady and vice presidential travel policy, check out this report:

    For security and other reasons, the President, Vice President, and First Lady use military aircraft when they travel.1 The White House generally categorizes the trips as fulfilling either official or political functions. Often, a trip involves both official and political, or unofficial, activities. When a trip is for an official function, the government pays all costs, including per diem (food and lodging), car rentals, and other incidental expenses. When a trip is for political or unofficial purposes, those involved must pay for their own food and lodging and other related expenses, and they must also reimburse the government with the equivalent of the airfare that they would have paid had they used a commercial airline. When a trip involves both official and political activities, a formula determines the amount to be reimbursed for that part of the trip involving political activities. Whether a trip is for official or political purposes, the Air Force pays all operational and other costs incurred by the use of the aircraft. While the travel policies of specific Administrations concerning the reimbursement of expenses for unofficial travel generally are not publicly available, it appears that policy guidelines developed by the Reagan White House have served as a basis for the travel policies of subsequent Administrations.
    Also, Obama DESERVES vacation time. He has perhaps the toughest job in the world. As President he's always on the job, day and night, and no vacation is ever a real vacation, the kind that he can take in obscurity and without worry of pirate attacks or whatever.
    Obama also has a family to preserve. He's human.
    Not everyone in America gets to take a vacation, but is that the President's fault? Does that mean he shouldn't take a vacation.
    People who can't take a vacation need to look at their own spending habits. After all, the recession can also be blamed on American lust for material goodies. In the lead up to the recession, people bought homes they couldn't afford, used their houses like ATM machines and were busy keeping up with the Joneses, who were wealthier than they. Wall Street took advantage of that greed to meet OUR demand.
    People ought to stop blaming Obama for everything and take a look at themselves. Obama is the president, not Superman. I'm rambling.
    Then there's always the whining about Obama's choice of vacation locations, as if Maine is too luxurious. It's funny, Americans aspire to be wealthy, but hate those who are wealthy.
    Then there's always the burning question every single time Obama goes on vacation: Should Obama go on vacation now? As if there is ever a good time to go on vacation if you're the president.
    I would understand if Obama was a lame president. But he is perhaps one of the most productive ever.
    People who whine about Obama's vacations are being idiotic and petty.
    I am happy that Obama is taking vacation time and spending time with his family, shooting hoops, golfing and doing whatever it takes to do be of sound mind and body.(less)
