    I remember when the story broke about $150k being spent on a wardrobe for Sarah Palin. "This is a woman who is out of touch" they said..."a woman who loves to spend the public's money". She must have had a shopping spree that would be the envy of Paris Hilton.

    Eventually it was discovered that not only didn't she wear most of the clothes, which were all returned, but many of the items included in the total weren't even for Sarah Palin. This was just another example of the fuzzy math the State Owned Media specializes in.

    However $150k seems a drop in the bucket compared to the expenses Obama and the First Lady have charged to the taxpayer since being nominated and now as President.

    Michelle has a full-time makeup and wardrobe staff that costs $1.2 million per year.

    She wore a pair of $600 dollar tennis shoes to a homeless shelter once.

    The President and the First Lady often fly to New York to dine and view Broadway shows on the public tab, about $260k a trip. :eusa_boohoo:

    The costs of his inauguration doubled the previous inauguration which Bush most certainly got plenty of grief for from the press.

    His acceptance speech had to be moved to a stadium to satisfy him :eusa_snooty:which cost millions to the networks in set design, lighting, cameras, and labor.

    He loses an average of $3 million in advertising income for each network every time he feels he needs to give one of his prime time addresses.

    His China visit somehow required 71 vehicles to escort him around to various sights.


    This guy is running up a huge tab and we have to pay for it. Don't you think he would try to lead by example and not insist on being treated like a king?:udaman:

    Is this all an example of narcissism or does it mean that he never felt this country was in the kind of financial trouble *Worst Economy Since The Great Depression* that he had been claiming?:hmpf:

    So Obama is spending millions on himself and we have to earn a set amount.

    We have to forget our dreams so he can live it up in the White House and around the world.

    This is the first generation that has less hope then the generation before it. Fewer expectations.

    Is that the kind of country you want to live in?

    Obama is right....he is making history.

    He's an angry black man who is racist, pretty much Marxist, no lover of America period and is hell-bent on destroying it financially and otherwise, unemotional and distant, self-serving and arrogant, and will not accept responsibility for anything he does wrong.

    He's another poor kid who was from a broken home, was deserted by one parent, and got shuffled around all over the place by the other parent and he's "entitled."

    In his own words - he did not know the facts at that moment - he jumped on a white cop for his treatment of Obama's black friend.

    It doesn't take 20/20 vision or have a low IQ to see what's happened to our country in less than a year.

    He talks about how wonderful his mother and grandmother were but I did not see an ounce of emotion when he (finally) gave up a day or so of campaigning and went to Hawaii for her funeral. Look at how he treats/snubs his other family members. I don't particularly see any honest emotion toward his wife and children - more like a superficial show.

    I've said it before: If someone asked Obama if he had sired his children he would say, "Hell, no - I inherited them from Bush."

    I think you need to wake up and pay attention more.

    All of this has been in the news this year and you never heard it????


    Fucken hilarious.


    Obama is a poster-boy for your typical Limo Liberal.

    He talks the talk but never walks the walk.

    In the world of liberalism, Mud.... individual thought, analysis and opinion are not valid. They are valid only if you can provide a link to show who thought your thoughts and formed your opinions for you. This is a product of the liberal education - where one is taught what to think, not how to think.

    Really good definition of "critical thinking". Its critical that they pre-program college students. Indoctrination means that they never consider both sides of anything, the liberal way is the only way.

    Oh, quit bitching and let Obama spend all the money he cares to on his little bullshit things. When he spends it on himself at least he isn't giving it away to some crapy nation who doesn't appreciate Americans but only our money.
