there are some of us who think he isnt earning his paycheck.


well there were 8 million more people that voted for him, and he should be able to take off as much time as reagan and bush when they were president.



yup and was 40 million who didnt vote for him

and in the past few years of lord obama the discontent has grown for him.


if we are to believe the polls i dont know if anyone will

but if we look at the past few elections where democrats have lost

one could surmise that democratic support has waned....


feel free to disagree

It probably costs taxpayers that much a day no matter where she is.

Biggest non-issue of the week to get angry about.


What???!!! Can you be any more of an apologetic suckup?

She can just keep her 2 axe-handle-wide butt in the White House, as far as I am concerned. She doesn't need to gorge herself so much at the public trough. She runs around telling people to sacrifice while she helps her husband to empty our national cash register.

How many unemployed could be fed with that money? And how many damn "vacations" does that dysfunctional family need, anyway?

This is how Washington relaxes, and pays for it with our tax money. When we go on vacation, the money for the trip comes out of our own pockets. Pelosi flies her family and friends around the world on Air Force jets all the time, with no expense to her personally. What Obama is showing with this vacation is Washington has no thought or conscious for the people it represents, and the struggles we are going through. This trip shows the arrogance of Obama, again

Yessa massa, yessa massa!

What?

Who are you to say what she can and cannot do with her own money?

As I fondly read this thread and chuckle, I so look forward to the day where the extreme left and right wingnuts, or maybe just their leaders, do each other in, so that the other 90% of us can live in peace, free of this endless partisan squabbling about idiocy.

Wow I missed that.

I got called an apologetic suckup because this non-issue about the first lady's vacation doesn't make me


Wow.
way to assume all sorts of crap. You think I care if she's a democrat, a satanist, or a unicorn? Nope. Not one bit.

But you go ahead and be a good little Rush automaton and don't think for yourself froth at the mouth upon command. It's amusing.

Thanks...scrolling through, now that is the third time I've seen the same link to the story titled "Faux outrage" --- for that is what it is, pure and simple...and just more of the same types of dirty tricks from the right wing noise machine. THEY are despicable, and have no morals when they think they can garner ANY sort of "political edge".

They count on the knee-jerking support of the noise-makers (we all know who they are...)

Back to that link...just in case no one else has actually gone over to read it, I did, and picked this bit out for everyone lambasting the Obamas to read!!:


We checked with the White House for a price breakdown of the trip, looking for a smoking gun. And honestly, there isn’t one. The bulk of the trip—the hotel stay and all meals—were paid for by the Obamas and their close friends who joined them. “Any additional footprint,” says a White House aide, “including additional rooms needed for security support, falls under the same rules as have applied to any previous first-family travel: the costs are split appropriately, with private expenses paid for privately; government expenses are paid for by the government.”


Guess it's time to trot this out, again....it has a short shelf life of topicality, now that the World Cup is over, but still.....

Hmmmm.....{stroking chin}.....I seem to remember there were always attempts to point out the hyprocrisies and such, but they didn't MAKE STUFF UP! Not, at least, to the same level as seen when the Right is "out of power"....

It is the stridentness and just plain lying that the Right is so noted for....

Except that we are discussing the current administration, not Woodrow Wilson's or any other presidency.

This administration and these hard times for many Americans, and how going on at least 8 extravagant vacations is perhaps not the message to you'd want to send to the people that put you in office.

Granted, the obama's are free to go where they want and spend what they want - no question about it.

The question - once again - is the message it sends.


Then vote them out and vote in a libertarian or someone from an independent party next time. Stop voting for the same two groups of bribed politicians who work for their lobbyists instead of for the U.S. citizens...

This is not the first time the "Obama's" have done something like this. You are all aware of the G-20 summit and how many people and supplies Obama brought up to Canada? They seem to feel the need to do everything on a grand scale, all the while telling American's we need to tighten our belts.


It's the ghetto culture that they came from. Shiny cars, fat wads of cash, and sunglasses at night. All meant to impress. All unearned.

If you're independent you just have to suffer through ALL of it...from both wingnut alleys.

Yes it did bear repeating. And loudly. You're picture helped too...lol. When the frenzy starts though it's really hard to control or get anyone to see logic. I think they should all get in an octagon and fight it out that way on pay per view.

Wonder what next week's anger pellet will be....

Yet members here want to take issue with first lady taking a vacation out of the U.S.. Do you own her??? They took a trip. Big deal. Other U.S. presidents have also taken vacations abroad. Here's that previously posted link again..

The Faux Scandal of Michelle Obama’s Spain Trip


So, you want us to believe this is a non-story because a left wing propaganda rag says so? You do realize this is the same magazine that trashed Bush relentlessly for 8 years? The same magazine that continues to bash Bush, Republicans and Americans who criticize this president?

It is a non-story and a non-issue. Not because anybody SAYS so, Hudson. Because we THINK so. The majority of us don't take our marching orders from anyone. When are you going to GET that?

Wow, what a complete joke.

I've lost some respect for Michelle Obama now.

I know she's the President's wife, but I never imagined she would do something like this.

Just shows what I know!

They got a beach closed off just for her?

Well, can't have her going on the beach with dirty commoners now can we?


she's the first lady, you idiot...you know...of the United states...every first lady has a whole s--tload of protection around her when she goes anywhere...but since she's black and a democrat..no problem, right pal???
what's wrong with you people????



I wish people would stop using the president’s skin color in their defense of him. It seems every negative post about him is replied with bringing up the fact that he is black and that the negative posts are because the poster is a racist or some other related labeling.

Why can't it be that he just happens to be a Democrat and 50% of the country happens to be republican, and so 50% of America just do not like the man and his policies very much? Can't it be just that simple without feeling the need to proclaim that the man is black…geez… I think everyone knows that by now, hehe.

IMHO Obama has gotten a much easier ride than any other president from the media and people in general because of the uniqueness of being our first black president.

Why was it a story when Bush was president? This seems like another case of the rules changing to suit Democrats.

How is spending that kind of tax payer money in this horrible economy not a story? You're telling me the media wouldn't be having a fit right now if W or Laura were taking a vacation like that when so many Americans are in real economic trouble?
