    When did you ever see a president and family stay in a Motel 6 in your lifetime? Of course it is going to costs thousands.

    Everytime a president has to use a toilet to take a dump am certain some taxpayer's money is used to pay for a secret serviceman to take a dump first to make certain there isn't a bomb.

    You can go back to the time when Nixon turned on the air conditioner in the summer just so he could like a fire in the fireplace. Whine on.

    Gosh, you're right. We should stop all this nonsense, and just let the prez spend whatever he wants on whatever he wants because....after all.... he is the prez. Who are we to whine, after all? It's only our money, right?

    My husband has been out of work and has struggled to find a job and I don't begrudge a president and his family a nice vacation. No matter who that president is or was. I can't imagine the stress and think they do deserve something extra for what they have to deal with day to day.

    After all, being realistic it's going to cost me personally, at the very highest estimate, not more than $5.00.

    Well, you don't speak for everyone else. Also, he could take a cheaper vacation. Didn't the president actually at one time ask Americans NOT to waste their money in Vegas? Hmm. He's an interesting one that's for sure.

    Never said I spoke for anyone but myself. He could take a cheaper one, then again he could take a more expensive one.

    I want a president who is willing to make sacrifices for the country and the people of this country. I don't get a fancy vacation and never do, many of us cannot afford to take vacations.

    This president patronizes the American people about their spending habits, their arrogance, etc., etc., and HE needs to take a good look in the mirror with his fancy vacations and extravagant parties too.

    No, you are right to a certain degree. Some whining from the public does keep the president and families from dressing like kings and queens I suppose. But in reality the cost of a president is always going to be high. Even after they leave office their cost to the taxpayer is going to remain high.

    I just find it fruitless to go on and on about this every 4 years. But as I said, Whine On.

    I don't take fancy vacations either. But I do know people in the service industry who benefit from those who take those fancy vacations. Yes it seems some people live extravagantly but the more they spend means somebody in the service industry benefits. It is always so tricky when you think about that. As long as somebody wants to spend money lavishly I just hope they do it here in the USA.
