    The purpose of this thread is to counter the many posters on the far right who have posted numerous threads critical of President Obama's vacations.

    Just trying to set the record straight with some facts.

    Do I expect the endless sniping from the far right losers to ever stop?

    Of course not, they can't get Obama out of the White House until another Democrat takes his place in 2017 so that is their only source of relief.

    And save the 'it's already budgeted' crap. He does not have to spend the money...he could easily give the millions in savings to the local D.C. poor.

    I especially object when he is running the country so badly that over 20% of all U.S. households are on food stamps...and getting worse.

    Record 20% of Households on Food Stamps in 2013 | CNS News

    That is pathetic.

    As long as he is Prez and sucking so many of those he governs would go hungry without government assistance; then he can fly coach.

    And if that makes it less safe for him, I don't care...he can vacation close to home and travel by car.

    He can go on his elaborate vacations when he leaves office.


    And Obama lovers with endless excuses for him, please save them...I do not even begin to care what they are.

    As long as so many Americans are in such piverty, he can forget the elaborate trips...it won't kill him.
    I long for the pre-Obama days of zero percent poverty.

    I guess I must have missed the huge increase in complaining lately. I have seen some threads like this in the past, but not lately. No doubt you were also there setting the record straight when Bush was in office, and the Left was complaining.

    There was never a really impeachment issue since Boehner said it won't happened. I never supported it, even politically.

    I never saw any need to set the record straight about Bush, since the complaints about him were totally justified. Take a look at the man's record.

    He threw away thousands of lives and airplane loads of cash in Iraq and gained nothing.

    His mucking around in Iraq didn't make anyone on this planet even a little bit safer.

    The only country that gained anything from Bush's unnecessary war in Iraq was Iran, which is mighty grateful for the help.

    Of course you didn't, my point is made.

    You don't have a point, you're seriously out of touch with reality.
