    Hmmm. Presidents pay out of pocket for their personal expenses. If the President is working late one night in the residence area and calls down to the White House kitchen to ask that a pastrami sandwich be sent up, one will certainly arrive, but he has to pay for it. Presidents receive an annual salary of $400K and a business expense account of $50K. Since he was up late working in the example above, he could pay for the pastrami sandwich from his expense account. Had he been up late reading or watching a movie, he would have to pay out of his salary or other personal resources.

    "President Obama is reportedly scheduled to be vacationing in Hawaii on January 2, the date billions in spending cuts – and untold consequences for the economy – will kick in if a deal is not reached on the “fiscal cliff.”According to the Hawaii Reporter, residents who live in the area of Oahu where Obama and his family vacation have been told that the usual restrictions on their movements during an Obama stay will be in place for 21 days, from December 17 through January 6"

    Well deserved...I hope he enjoys it. I think the government should give him a couple million so he can relax himself at the roullette table.

    Still a-skeered, huh? Well, you just stay hunkered down in the storm cellar then. Meanwhile, it was YOUR claim that "this idiot flew his favorite pizza maker from St. Louis to DC." That's an entirely false claim of course, as I and all those scary internet sites lurking out there have been pointing out. You haven't supported your claim at all. And you won't because you can't.

    Hawaii and Utah are the only two US states that have no form of legalized gambling at all.

    I say you are the "scared one" since you have failed to show any links backing up what you say

    Hawaii and Utah are the only states that prohibit all forms of gambling, according to the American Gaming Association.

    Obama isn't "spending" 4 million. He's taking a vacation.

    The protocols of protecting the President apply no matter where he is. He has to travel by Airforce One = its not his choice he is basically a prisoner of the secret service. He can't go anywhere without them, he can't travel by normal transport, he can't be "uncovered" at any time, he can't just randomly go to a restaurant or movie theatre.

    And yet, the right is bitchin' about the costs of the most powerful man on the planet taking a break from the stresses of the job. Or is mental and emotional well being not important?
