    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?
    I don't like the fact Obama is taking a 21 day vacation on the taxpayers dime.

    I could understand a week, maybe 10 days but 3-weeks?

    That is only 80 jobs that could be saved at 50k a year per job.

    Of course in another thread progressives are attempting to label republicans "hypocrites" because they authorized (not spent) 500k over a DOMA program, meanwhile the president goes on vacation that the cost of 8x the cost.

    That moron Obama shouldn't be going on a 21 day vacation with the economy in the tank - that is about as bad as taking private jets to Washington DC to ask for a bailout!

    Obama should behave more modestly, instead of living lavishly.

    Michelle and Barry are starting to remind me of Marie "let them eat cake" Antoinette and King Louis XVI...

    You know what, I'll make this nice and easy cause frankly it's bordering the sign of crazy from the right on this.

    If you believe Obama shouldn't do what EVERY president in the last 40 years has done, make a ****ing amendment that states they can't. Otherise, please stop the whining. While you're at it, why don't you make an amendment that states that Congress can't vote themselves pay raises nor enjoy the perks they have been allowed to get away with.

    I love it when one side makes excuses for a president taking vacation while THEIR guy is in power and then whines about a president taking vacation when it isn't their guy in power.

    Don't like it......change it or deal with it. The only people at fault for this are the voters that keep voting in people that do this **** and vote the people that DO have the power over the pursestrings to stop it but don't.

    Nuff said, have fun with the faux outrage.

    Let's hope that during his vacation he doesn't sail over any fiscal cliff. The United States desperately needs him to run the country, manage the economy, and protect all Americans from outside dangers. Who but Barrack the Magnificent can get the job done?

    So you believe the president SHOULD and DOEs control the economy?

    "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"

    It seems clear enough that this President has seriously damaged the American economy. Can we seriously consider otherwise?

    That depends. Do you blame the president for signing the bills or the house and senate for creating them?
