    I got one as a gift.

    I use to post pictures of his work online with my jewelry-business and the negative comments I'd get were agregious. . . things like "he's suppose to be fighting and killing, not making you jewelry" and crap like that.

    People don't get it - Everyone in the world has a job, they do their job, and sometimes they get to have some "down" time (nights, weekends, etc) . . . but it's never really "down" time for the president and soldiers, etc, because they're living at their work, their duty follows them everywhere along with personal assistants and everything else.

    Though I don't like Obama, didn't vote for him, and would rather have McCain or Barr as president I don't feel like that robs him of the right to *try* to relax.

    because it looks bad

    maybe not to you, but to many

    and there's nothing to be gained from it

    at least, not from its BEING TALKED ABOUT

    and people ARE talking about it

    and glenn beck's not the bigmouth doing the blabbing, not this time

    it contributes to an image lots of people are forming of him

    in my opinion

    And yet you are arguably one of the biggest hypocrites here.

    In fact you stated to me that you don't give a **** about being consistent.

    There is from being a best-selling author, from being a hospital administrator, and even being a politician pays fairly well.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Why does it look bad? It's their money, they earned it legitimately, and it's not going to anything obscene.
