    PM me when you find out what we or any all American owned company got something out of Obama's family vacation in Africa.

    The only thing Africa has that America needs is oil and isn't Obama suppose to make America independent from oil imports ?

    If Obama really wanted to accomplish something good in Africa, he would have droaned that Nigerian General who keeps e-mailing me for the past sixteen years.

    You are relatively new, but you should not assume that merely because someone disagrees with your position that they are automatically a fan of the opposing side. Some of us don't like the partisan vomit that goes both ways. Thus, I'm giving you some advice now, research who you are posting to before making such assumptions. That way you end up with less egg on your face.

    but some of his expenditures are pretty indefensible.
    So does every President. Harping about vacation costs ignores that it costs an arm and a leg when the President steps outside the White House.

    No one is saying he shouldn't take a vacation but does he have to build a mile long, bomb proof tunnel when he ventures out into bad neighborhoods? Can't he just, ya know, find something else to do in a safer neighborhood?
    Ever been to India? You might want to reconsider that little quip.

    They can't all be millionaires like the Bush's. Ooh wait, the Obama's are millionaires too. They have been making loads of money since years and years. You are acting like a poverty stricken family got dropped into the White House straight from the Hood.

    I am sorry, but all your comments about the Obama's say more about you than about the Obama's.

    Actually, Obama has spent less than GWBush. Not to mention the deficit is shrinking faster than it did after WW2 and the debt is actually going down and CBO cut it's projection on the debt in half.

    The South Side of Chicago is the Hood. Young black kids are being shot in Obama's hood. I seem to remember CNN reporting on that.

    Not sure, but I have heard that the handler salary is over $100 K, and I am sure he travels with the dog, and does not sleep or eat in the kennel.

    As I remember, the dog was a gift from the Kennedys.

    Our technology exports are sold all over Africa; pcs and smart phones. Plus cars and agricultural equipment. Plus some countries in Africa use US currency and help to maintain the US dollar as the global reserve note. Zimbabwe doesn't even print its own money anymore and simply use the US dollar. Plus, any country anywhere that has a positive view of America is only beneficial especally in consideration of the spread of terrorist ideology.

    Thanks for that info. If the president is using his own money, then I don't care, but taxpayer money probably shouldn't be used for his pets IMO. I say, pay for your own pets!

    Laughable

    I don't give a crap about Bush. Will you stop with the Bush strawmen please? Thank you! Seriously, we're going broke. This country's spending is out of control. We don't have the money for any of this and Obama is throwing our money around without a care in the world. Obama has added at least 6T in new debt within 5 years.

    The deficit is shrinking?

    U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time

    If you want to defend Obama's spending then defend his spending. Show us all the jobs we got from that 787B stimulus. Oh wait, there weren't any jobs. Show us the utopia that 6T has bought us. Where is all the promised and projected GDP growth Obama promised? Where is the growing economy? Where are the full time jobs? Why are people losing hours and their HC because of Obamacare? You have no answers to the serious problems this country faces. Obama doesn't have any answers either. He looks like a used car salesmen. I'm sorry but the days of Obama the messiah are over. His record is one of absolute failure. The economic numbers under this President are A DISASTER. Our economy is not producing enough wealth. People are taking on 2 part time jobs just to get by. As we saw in Detroit. The Democrat policies Obama is trying to implement will bankrupt this country. They already are.

    He airlifted his dog to his 7M mansion vacation getaway while Rome is burning. Keep defending it. You're only undermining your own credibility.
