    So this is your level of maturity? Noted (though I cannot say I am surprised).


    Actually, for the record, I changed the post you quoted. It now reads:

    'I am sure you can find them.

    Sorry, but I honestly do not have nearly enough respect for you or your debating 'techniques' to waste my time on you in this thread any further...especially if you refuse to answer simple questions.

    I am beginning to think you are just a bored troll.

    No offense intended.


    Have a nice day.'



    Have a nice day.

    Who the hell gets 20 days off in a row anyway? Besides congress and the President?

    And, in the current situation, I think announcing his big vacations plans sends a bad signal.

    Finally, are you ever going to let go of the Bush excuse card. It's tantamount to saying Bush was a AH so Obama can be one too. So, Obama can do anything Bush did, and its OK. The last time I had to explain that this was ridicules reasoning, my kids were about 10 years old.

    Very eloquent, but no substance. Let's try this one last time. Are you going to respond to these points or just make another eloquent post.

    1. Benghazi crisis, he went to a fundraiser instead of returning to the White House.
    2. East coast disaster, he went there to rev-up his campaign.

    And, in the current situation, I think announcing his big vacations plans sends a bad signal.


    If you chose not to respond to my points, I understand.

    If you bitch about the costs of having Obama president but didn't care about the costs of any other president, you are a hypocrite and can't be taken seriously. This whole thread could make for a case study in conservative delusion.
    No bitching about the costs, I coudn't care less how much his vacations cost. Let me restate the same points in my post that you obviously haven't read or addressed.

    1. Benghazi crisis, he went to a fundraiser instead of returning to the White House.
    2. East coast disaster, he went there to rev-up his campaign.

    And, in the current situation, I think announcing his big vacations plans sends a bad signal.


    3 points, any answers?

    To be fair it was much much much more. First off he was there so often, that the SS had to upgrade the security for the whole freaking farm, and the White House had to install state of the art communications gear and so on, because as everyone knows, the President can never be out of communication... and so on and so on. His Texas ranch was the White House 2.0.

    Why do you take it too the extremes? I recall the left blasting GW for spending time at his ranch, and the time spent that didn't cost
    us nearly as much as obama's time on the golf course.

    Because that would be wealth redistribution and it's socialism.

    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 hear flights to Kenya are cheaper.

    Maybe I'm just jaded after all these years but every single time a president goes on vacation we have to do this partisan song and dance.

    It's a monument to hyperbolic stupidity and futility.

    Re: Obama Plans 20-day, $4 million Vacation

    Presidents need vacations as much (and perhaps more) than anybody else, and presidential vacations are costly. I'm sure if the fiscal cliff drama continues up until the last minute the trip will be canceled.

    I would happily allow 0.00000001% (or whatever the exact percentage is) of my tax contribution to go toward a presidential vacation, on the understanding that an emotionally and mentally stable president is better than one that hasn't had a break in a long time.
