    I am pointing out the hypocrisy of bitching about one but not the other. I at least am consistent. Presidents make trips. They are expensive. I accept that. I did not throw a fit when Bush did it, or Clinton, or Bush the elder, or Reagan. You however, think it's ok when it's your guy, but not when it is some one you don't like. That is a lack of consistency.

    What trips did Bush take with 16 million unemployed Americans, trillion dollar deficits, and a shellacking at the polls? Obama doesn't get it as apparently he isn't smart enough to understand the entitlement mentality he seems to have.

    And you are again evading the question. You set up a set of goals to allow a trip, specifically designed to make it appear to be consistent, then throw in a couple mindless attacks to go along with it.

    Obama Tax cuts

    Total: $288 billion

    [edit] Tax cuts for individuals

    Total: $237 billion

    • $116 billion: New payroll tax credit of $400 per worker and $800 per couple in 2009 and 2010. Phaseout begins at $75,000 for individuals and $150,000 for joint filers.[29]
    • $70 billion: Alternative minimum tax: a one year increase in AMT floor to $70,950 for joint filers for 2009.[29]
    • $15 billion: Expansion of child tax credit: A $1,000 credit to more families (even those that do not make enough money to pay income taxes).
    • $14 billion: Expanded college credit to provide a $2,500 expanded tax credit for college tuition and related expenses for 2009 and 2010. The credit is phased out for couples making more than $160,000.
    • $6.6 billion: Homebuyer credit: $8,000 refundable credit for all homes bought between 1/1/2009 and 12/1/2009 and repayment provision repealed for homes purchased in 2009 and held more than three years. This only applies to first-time homebuyers.[41]
    • $4.7 billion: Excluding from taxation the first $2,400 a person receives in unemployment compensation benefits in 2009.
    • $4.7 billion: Expanded earned income tax credit to increase the earned income tax credit — which provides money to low income workers — for families with at least three children.
    • $4.3 billion: Home energy credit to provide an expanded credit to homeowners who make their homes more energy-efficient in 2009 and 2010. Homeowners could recoup 30 percent of the cost up to $1,500 of numerous projects, such as installing energy-efficient windows, doors, furnaces and air conditioners.
    • $1.7 billion: for deduction of sales tax from car purchases, not interest payments phased out for incomes above $250,000.

    Bush Tax cuts

    Between 2001 and 2003, the Bush administration instituted a federal tax cut for all taxpayers. Among other changes, the lowest income tax rate was lowered from 15% to 10%, the 27% rate went to 25%, the 30% rate went to 28%, the 35% rate went to 33%, and the top marginal tax rate went from 39.6% to 35%.[3] In addition, the child tax credit went from $500 to $1000, and the "marriage penalty" was reduced. Since the cuts were implemented as part of the annual congressional budget resolution, which protected the bill from filibusters, numerous amendments, and more than 20 hours of debate, it had to include a sunset clause. Unless congress passes legislation making the tax cuts permanent, they will expire in 2011.
    using the figures from your post, what exactly was wrong with the obama tax cuts? picking winners and losers my arse....homebuyer credit=good thing...credit for college tuition=good thing....home energy credit+deduction of sales tax credit for new car purchase=good thing...what is wrong with this?

    Selective tax cuts that aren't really tax cuts, you have do something in order for the liberals to allow you to benefit. Home buyer credit is a reduction of the cost of that loan so how is that a tax cut? Credits for college tuition is a reduction in the cost of going to college thus not a tax cut, home energy credit is a cost savings for spending money to upgrade your home insulation, sales tax reduction? Since sales taxes are state revenue issues tax deductions reduce the price of the car and aren't tax reductions. You don't seem to really understand what a tax reduction is.
