    Tim-
    Pretending that the president taking a vacation is an issue. It shows how intellectually bankrupt conservatives have become. Basically conservatism is a joke.

    If your not an Obama/Green Party/Justice Party supporter you not welcome here. We don't want Johnson supporters either or just Libertarians in general.

    I think the GOP should be renamed to the GOW. Grand Old Whiners. Good lord! Christian Brother's cannot hold a candle to the amount of whines being produced by conservatives.

    Yeah, he crashed that too.

    The only thing Bush didn't crash was that jet when he landed on an aircraft carrier and claimed "mission accomplished." Regrettablly.

    Don't like a president visiting his place of birth, don't vote for someone from Hawaii. Funny though, I can't seem to find any posts from you complaining about GOP president travels and costs, I wonder why that is?
    If Obama didnt go on this 20 day vacation the saving would be about 175,000 dollars - cost of fuel, pilots etc

    The cost for maintaining the banksters and CEOs of the US Corpocracy is in the Billions of dollars and they caused the Financial mess, and they were the ones who received the trillions in bail outs

    Some perspective here folks

    And Obama is really a low cost Corporate Puppet clown - a bargain basement sale as far as waste of US tax money is concerned

    (look at the Crooks at Goldman Scahs and the criminals who run the Federal Reserve)

    Because $4 million will just absolutely spiral the country into deficit.....Frankly, he could probably use a vacation, perhaps he will regain sense?

    A President is never on vacation, even when he is.

    Actually, Bush usually took his own private jet to his own home in Texas. I had a buddy who was the crew chief on Marine One while Dubya was POTUS and the only costs incurred by Bush were for the Secret Service, who would have been paid anyway regardless of where they were.
    Now, can we drop the Bush crap? Seriously, the dude left office 4 years ago. President Obama loves to state that we are in the "worst economy since the Great Depression" yet he lives above the fray. He doesn't reflect the state of the American people. Sometimes, regardless of the cost or actual resources that will be used, a vacation isn't the kosher thing to do. Right now, with the fiscal cliff looming, an extremely complex controversy brewing, and unemployment that is not improving, the American people don't need to see their "leader" going on vacation.
