Yes, Obama is the only president to enjoy the luxury that came with being a president.

Ive been to Atlantis Paradise Island, Bahamas. On the beach there are numerous people walking around asking you to buy Christmas trees=Weed, or Snow=Cocaine. I know Obama said he had tried both. Youve really got to watch out for those guys, I saw a guy get into an altercation because he got ripped off. Its not really a paradise when you get to know the people that actually live there. More like a very hard life, full of drugs, theft, and misery. They got a realy nice Casino though. Sarcasim

Vacation...from what? Luxury?

These kids get whatever they want, do whatever they want and they need a vacation from it?

I work my ass off 6 days a week and am too tired to do anything on my one day off. I also watch anything I spend on that day over 100 dollars.

But the poor little rich, entitled kids need a break from a few hours in school more than I need a break from a 70 hour work week.

I guess I can't say anything because Americans are OK with footing the bill.


You sound like a bitter brat who can't get their way. Are you seriously comparing your life to a bunch of KIDS! I don't care who their parents are, they are KIDS you are an ADULT. You should probably act like it instead of dis a couple kids who have no say in what their parents do nor do they have anything to do with the fact you have to work all the time. They are KIDS!!

Where is the proof we as Americans are paying for this and how is it 100k? They are kids for heavens sake. You say they don't need a break?! How do you know? Do you live their life? I would think they deal with more than any kid I know will ever deal with. Go pick on someone your own size.

I'm sure there are a lot of hard working parents who would love to take their children somewhere nice but can't. Many people cannot afford vacations anymore. No, they're too busy being the working poor while stuck on SNAP(food stamps) and trying to make ends meet. It's a slap in the face to Americans who are going through hell right now to constantly see these people living it up. To hell with this.

No no no. You are right. He is in fact the hardest working person to every grace Earth.

He is working very very very hard in stripping away rights, pissing on the Constitution and destroying the US.

Yes, a very very very hard worker indeed.

Why is anyone shocked by this? He’s been doing it since he took office.







It's funny to hear people attempt to justify his extravagant lifestyle. The biggest differences between Obama vacationing and Bush vacationing are 1)the country wasn't in the crapper when Bush did it, and 2) Obama does it more often and at a greater expense to the taxpayer.

At this point I think its safe to say that Michelle has spent more on vacations than Bush did and she's NOT THE POTUS!!

you're right...he is actively trying to strip away every right that you have...it's amazing that you are not in a jail cell already. time for you to move out of this country, before a black helecopter comes and takes you away to a fema camp

so more straw men arguments. Really?

Is it NOT reprehensible to you that during the greatest financial crisis the country has faced in a long time where many people have lost everything and are now asked to tighten their belts even further as our public money is pissed away, is it ok that our leadership shows NO solidarity and chooses to not sit this years vacation out to show even a symbolic sense of unity and understanding? Is that OK to you?

I will never understand the apologetic tone you people take. YOU people should ask for a dollar for your service.

How is this even a race issue? White people...pfft. How about OBAMA and his family, what ever race that traitorous infestation just happens to be, has let us down.

You can try the hole bible of tricks in the book. You make me sick. You divide your nation with race or class at times of crisis to protect the incorrect actions of your precious leader....because a divided nation does better somehow...yeah you care....


He is our leader during hard times. Stop with the "bling and luxury" while people struggle to feed themselves thanks to the theft the elected and their friends have perpetrated.

Set an example or get the hell out of public office. It is a sacred charge with the highest of responsibilities. If you cant handle NOT going on vacation while your people are kicked out of their homes and are going poor, then you have NO BUSINESS being in office. You should just enjoy your money. POWER is for real MEN and WOMEN. Not pansies that cant handle toughing it out while they ask as much from their people.

Not a good way to defend your POTUS.

Yeah, okay, Bush spent more money and took more vacations than Obama in his eight years of office. But Obama is barely into his second term so I wouldn't be surprised if he caught up with Bush in the next couple of years.

I think what people are having trouble with is that we had a financial collapse a few years ago and millions of people are out of work. The people who are finding work are doing only part time jobs and can't pay their mortgages (not all, of course) We can't take vacations, especially ones to gorgeous islands sipping coladas around the pool.

When Bush took his vacations to Crawford Ranch he spent his time working on the ranch (physically). He had mentioned once it was a great 'stress reducer'. He often rode his bike, jogged, etc... The town itself was dying, with buildings closed and boarded up until Bush bought his ranch there. Now the town has revived and is bustling with coffee shops and tourist attractions. He often visits these shops to talk with regulars and the residents are happy to have him.

What we are seeing in Obama that is his vacations have a 'luxury' quality to it: vacations in Hawaii, vacations in Bahamas, etc...It implies a life of ease, fine dining and extravagant purchases. And it rankles the public. While he stresses us to be patient and it will get better, he is taking vacations to these 'luxurious' places. A leader leads by example and he is not doing this.

ok...he can't pass any laws without congress, he can't appropriate any taxpayer monies to help people without congressional consent...congress went home on vacation...so...should he send out the military and forceably bring back every congressmen, and force them back into a congressional session, and stay there until the problems are solved?....or...do you think he should just stay in the white house for the rest of the next 4 years, not take any vacations, to show leadership?..... every time this president goes anywhere, overseas to talk to other leaders, or goes on vacation, he's called every name in the book, is accused of being unpatriotic, and calls for his removal or impeachment are heard over and over......him and his family have recieved 400% more death threats than bush did, most of them vile and disqusting. and yet...again....he's a pansy, he's not a real man, he has no business being president.

although i am not completely for obama's extravagant spending during these hard times, i have to point out some of the same people complaining about obama's vactaions are the same people that staunchly support millionaires and billionaires rights to their money and how they spend it!! you people make me sick, you are a bunch of hypocrites. the obama's were well off before he became president, and would still be well off had he not become president. were all you same people complaining now, complaining when sarah palin was wearing super expensive outfits while the obamas were dressing frugally? if you are going to demonize one, demonize them all!!!

If you dont see the problem after I explained it as I did, then you will never or refuse to admit it.

Why not ride around in a million dollar car, and wear many thousand dollar suits like some tacky mafioso.

Then ask why people, every couple hundred years, lynch their leaders.....

Oh we are savages....yeah. Right. And they are like monkeys obsessed with shiny things.....

Look you can pretend all you want, or you can face the facts. You dont do that as a leader.

If you dont "get it" you are probably not someone who should be a leader or decide who they should be.

Good for them...why shouldn't they enjoy themselves and why shouldn't Obama give his children a nice vacation.

The fact that it pisses off all you anti-Obama people is just a bonus.


You guys rant over and over about not being jealous over other peoples success...and yet here you are...crying because the Obamas are successful and enjoy nicer things than you do.

Hypocrite much?

For all of you crying about how tough you and other people have it...maybe if you stopped voting for Republicans, you wouldn't have such a crappy life.

You aren't rich...even if you are upper middle class...you aren't Republican rich...you aren't wealthy enough to benefit from the policies that they pass.

But hey...the god and guns rhetoric just pulls you right in...which is fine if that is your priority. But then don't bitch and moan about your poor financial status as the Republicans continue to openly take dumps on the working class.
