    Glad Reagan didn't take any vacations.

    Not my problem
    It is now.

    Here they are (as per yer request):

    1-'Why can he not do all this after 2016 and give the $4 million he saves to the poor?

    2- What, living in the White House is too confining?

    3-I will ask you again, do you not think it would be a great gesture at Christmas for Obama to forgo this trip and spend that saved millions of dollars at local food banks/shelters/make a Wish foundations/ etc?

    Yes or no, please?

    4-I asked you what happens if the POTUS does not use all of the travel/security budget allocated to him? Prove to me why it cannot be allocated elsewhere?

    5-He cannot vacation near to home?

    He has just GOT to fly 4800 miles or he will drop dead from exhaustion?

    6-Are you seriously suggesting that when a President incurs less travel expenses one year over the last one that the government, if it does exactly the same things otherwise, will still have exactly the same spending costs?


    Not that I really care that much now what you think - but you asked for these...now please answer them.


    Have a less trolling day.

    The logical solution would be NO vacation. (Im fine with that by the way)

    Well as a "rightie" I'd sure like to know what you think I might be desparate about?

    while we're on the subject of vacation :

    now, i understand some of that time off has to be devoted to getting yelled at in town hall meetings and being courted by lobbyists, but just damn.

    keep burning that candle at both ends, congress. lol
