This lady just got back from back to back vacations in Martha's vineyard, and the Gulf coast, and in between she had to fly back to the WH to hear a song sung to her by Paul McCartney, and Stevie Wonder, then without rest there were probably some NYC dinner dates with Barry, or some shopping for Arugula in the streets of DC she had to endure....Goodness, how does she do it....Heck, I'd need 40 of my closest friends and rooms with views of the Sea, and Turkish baths to unwind from all that work.....pfft.

    Again it's sad that you care that a woman goes on vacation.

    It is not about taking a vacation. Its the cost. Would not have been better to spend it in the US?

    when it comes to Conservatives, Obama can't do anything right and never will do anything right. I think it has something to do with the color of his skin.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    I praised Obama when he said to allow the Iraq war to continue, that is pretty much the only thing i would agree on. Everything else I disagree based on principle, not on race or gender or anything else people could call me on.
    We the People of the United States,... provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare....
    Where did it ever say, promote for the common defence, and provide the general Welfare..... Please don't mix up the two....

    Are you being serious? I hope you don't think hundreds of thousands or even millions will help the U.S. very much considering our debt is trillions(thanks Obama).

    Stop speaking left-wing rhetoric and playing the race card and think for yourself.

    no, I am basing that presumption of off personal experience. I have lived in Alabama for five years know and I think it is safe to say a lot people down here still dislike blacks but nowadays behind closed doors.

    Re: Lavish Obama vacation in time of economic turmoil raises eyebrows

    I could never understood the mentality of taking multiple vacations within short spans of time. I took a week off from work (since I lose my vacation time at the end of the year) and I was bored out of my skull. I couldnt wait to get back to work .
