    For Obamas, a (mostly) uninterrupted vacation - Yahoo! News

    And we're so very glad that he didn't have to do "president stuff" this time. I know it really cuts into his flashy lifestyle to be president.

    Hopefully, the girls will be starting school soon and they'll stop jetsetting all over the world.

    Hate to say it BO...but vacation's over...back to work.

    At some point I hope the left and the media accepts the fact that Obama is President.I for one am painfully aware that he is.I can tell that by the high unemployment,the lack of consumer confidence,the sluggish economy,the immigration issue,and other things.

    When is the left going to accept this.Whenever the President gives a speech he ALWAYS brings up the prior administration caused all these problems....He never brings up the fact that the Left controlled congress during the last two years of Bush's last term.

    So when the President is questioned about anything he has done or not done can't the left just defend the President's position and not complain about the prior administration.

    When will the left accept the fact that they have the WH and Congress and they are responsible for their actions.If they are not comfortable with their responsibility then maybe they should go back to community organizer or something.:eusa_whistle:

    You mean while he was hangin out at his little do nothing piddly ranch? Or are you referring to his time at Camp David...the presidential retreat. Either place, he's not spending THOUSANDS a night for multi-million dollar resort homes in the Vineyard or Hawaii. Nor did he spend his birthday with friends while his wife and daughter kicked it in Spain for a week.

    Mr. Bush didn't have a 9.7 unemployment rate either.

    Nine...that's the number of family vacations the Obama's have taken in 18 months. Some of them short 3 day visits to Chicago and then there's the 2 week Christmas in Hawaii at $4,000 a night for the 8.9 million dollar beach house they enjoyed, while the rest of the country worried about how they were going to put presents under the tree. By the way, there were 2 other homes next door that were also rented for other family and friends to enjoy.

    I don't care about the number of days really...it's the way they spend them. And SPEND is a very important word here.

    Bush hung out in HIS ranch house or enjoyed the provisions of the POTUS at Camp David. If you add up all the money Obama has cost the US in travel and compare it to the costs incurred by GWB, the numbers don't lie. Obama has racked up MILLIONS more while the country suffers a financial downturn of historical proportion.

    You really think so? Do you know how much the tax payers are shelling out for his little "getaways"??? Someone should REALLY let him in on that little secret about Camp David

    well it didn't have anything to do with a 10% unemployment rate or thousands upon thousands of homes going into foreclosure all at the same time.
