    So Obama says that corporate jets aren't a legitimate business expense for execs of multinational companies. Well, he's a servant of the people of the United States. He's not only not just writing off his jets, but we're directly paying for it.

    So Obama, walk the walk. If international CEOs who actually create our economy and work for a profit can't deduct jets, how can a "servant of the people" actually make the people PAY for their jet. They can't. Buy a ticket. Even if you buy tickets for half the plan to be secret service, it's still a lot cheaper for your customers then paying for your personal 747.

    It's stuff like this that delegitimizes real criticism of President Obama. If you want to lose in 2012, keep focusing on stuff like this.

    How does it make sense it's not a legitimate business expense for business executives to own jets, they can't just deduct jets as a business expense, but it does make sense for a servant of the people to make them actually pay for his jets? Explain.

    I'm not a Republican so I will lose. But if I were a Republican, then if the price of winning were to acquiesce to even more Obama class warfare then I chose to lose. The class warfare has to stop. He's going after this for that reason alone, it gives him the millionaire and greedy corporation talking points.

    It should really be Obama's campaign slogan. Obama 2012: Do as I say, not as I do. Pretty much could apply to every politician though.

    Obama just doesn't understand history. This is like the Yacht tax all over again. Of course he probably does know how bad of an idea this is, but he's going for class envy which most of his voters fall for.

    Try reading the post before responding to it. It was about his hypocrisy. Google is a great tool. Hypocrisy means saying one thing and doing another. It has nothing to do with who you think you are. Anything to say about the actual subject?
