hinten: Who says this is a vacation trip?Also, FTFA: "the preparations appear to be in line with similar travels in the past"
Dusk-You-n-Me: This obsession with the cost of Presidential security is downright creepy.
OHDUDENESS: like if I disagree then I must be racist
Trivia Jockey: Imagine if your surgeon never took a vacation, working 70-hour weeks non-stop all year round.
Trivia Jockey: It's arguably one of the most stressful jobs in the world. Does anyone really want a president to work non-stop with no vacations to de-stress or clear his head?Imagine if your surgeon never took a vacation, working 70-hour weeks non-stop all year round.
skozlaw: Is there, like, a schedule for this derp or something, or do conservatives just randomly pull slips of paper out of an "outrage" hat from time to time?
OHDUDENESS: That card is way old and overplayed
IrateShadow: This administration has a few actual scandals right now. Why are conservatives wasting their time on this petty shiat?

OHDUDENESS: Why this obsession with always stating his color of skin? It makes any argument you have that whatever he's doing is right seem weak., like if I disagree then I must be racist. That card is way old and overplayed.

LessO2: At least if Obama gets a memo while on vacation mentioning someone is determined to attack us, that he will act on it, rather than ignore it.
gnosis301: It's like Republicans have never seen that Brad Pitt movie where he has to kill that man-eating lion. That kind of security costs money!
skozlaw: I do have to question if all of this is really, strictly necessary though... 56 support vehicles have to be airlifted in? An assault team in case of a rogue cheetah?
Trivia Jockey: skozlaw: or do conservatives just randomly pull slips of paper out of an "outrage" hat from time to time?Trying to find a reason to criticize this president is a full-time job for many conservatives.
skozlaw: IrateShadow: Why are conservatives wasting their time on this petty shiat?You mean as opposed to the not-at-all petty "scandal" over the attack in Benghazi? As opposed to all the prior presidents who totally didn't have any such things happen during their... oh, wait.Or maybe you mean PRISM, the product of the bipartisan domestic spying program that was started in 2001, has been publicly debated numerous times and reauthorized by both democrats and republicans in Congress who saw no backlash from the public?Maybe you mean the IRS "scandal" where the IRS singled out a bunch of political groups for scrutiny over their political activities when they applied for a tax-exempt status that disallowed political activity?Truly outrageous. History's greatest monster.
vernonFL: I don't expect Obama to travel in the lowest class, but in these economic times, he shouldn't travel first class, either.
Jairzinho: vernonFL: I don't expect Obama to travel in the lowest class, but in these economic times, he shouldn't travel first class, either.I completely agree. I understand costs of security details etc. but the president traveling first class is an unwarranted luxury in these times. He and his family should sit back in coach during those trips to save money.[www.whitehouse.gov image 440x247]
Zeb Hesselgresser: "To meet our fiscal challenge, we will need to make reforms. We will all need to make sacrifices. But we do not have to sacrifice the America we believe in. And as long as I'm president, we won't."At least he wasn't lying there.
