    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)
    As I posted elsewhere in this thread...for the record...Air Force One costs about $180,000 per hour, not per trip. And it is about 17 hours to Hawaii and back...that is over $3 million just to get there and back.

    You can't tell that to those who have their panties in a twist over this. All they care about is making a fuss over nothing. They want to believe Obama is pissing money down the drain. They want him to be evil.

    That attitude is what got us to the "fiscal cliff". I realize you are being tongue in cheek. Your comment made me think of that.

    He isn't pissing money down the drain? When did this stop? I didn't see it on the news anywhere. Even MSNBC didn't report that.

    Quoted for accuracy.

    I jest, of course, and yes the Left complained when Bush played golf or anything. It's tradition for the minority party to complain about the President taking a vacation.

    The only thing Bush didn't crash was that jet when he landed on an aircraft carrier and claimed "mission accomplished." Regrettablly.
    I don't believe your boy would have ever gotten OBL if it weren't for the ground work laid by Pres Bush in this realm. Iraq was Pres Bush's war. We're looking pretty good there. Afghanistan is Pres Obama's. We'll be leaving there with our tail between our legs shortly.

    Bush DID receive criticism for his vacations. Now when Obama takes a vacation, and people complain about it... they're in the wrong?

    If only people could get their heads out of their asses for one minute and realize that power corrupts anyone who has that much of it. Every national politician, the President most especially, is living high on the hog, all paid for with tax dollars.

    LBJ was the first President to do it. Technology allowed him to and he took full advantage of it.

    The President is a servant to the American people. Taking a 20 day vacation that costs the taxpayers 4 million dollars isn't serving the people. Perhaps I was just brought up to believe that a leader makes sacrifices for the good of the people he leads, and I'm just not seeing that from him, or any of our politicians.
