    I never said every conservative. It's foolish to say every conservative hates Obama because he is black. However, there is a lot of irrational hate which I think stems from racism.

    i.e. birthers and people who think he is the Anti-Christ.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    I love watching the hysterical right bitch about trivial things. It really is hilarious.

    I had no trouble with Bush vacations, and I have no trouble with Obama vacations. Is there something meaningful we can actually talk about?

    My point was why not spend the dollars in the US rather than oversees. Ask some resort if they would have liked Obama's vacation business.

    Sometimes indifference is a good thing. Not every event has to be a subject for hysteria.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Is that the royal 'we', or Schizophrenics r'Us, or what? You really only can speak for yourself.

    Yawn.

    Is it stupid politically? Absolutely.

    Does it really matter? No. The majority is coming from their own money. The secret service have to go with them, its not like she gets a choice. To my understand she's gotta fly on an air force plane, there's not really a choice. We were running up debt under Bush and trips to African Safari's weren't needed, and by no mean was a "Conservative" choice of fiscal responsability, but I don't care. We were in horrible economic times when Nancy Reagan went on vacation in the early years of her husbands Presidency, and I don't care.

    People go on vacation, the majority of the vacation is being paid for with her money, I see no reason why she should have to or be forced to regulate where she is going.

    Is it stupid politically because it shows a great divide between American families taking "staycations" and other such things and the Obama's? Absolutely. However I don't see it as something that needs some giant foaming at the mouth public focus and outcry, as its really not a big deal in relation to the majority of things going on.

    its really not that as much as it portrays an arrogant snobbish attitude.......and all the while Obama plays more golf, invites the "dream team" over for some hoops and grills out on the south lawn......he has trivialized the importance of the office
