Slaves2Darkness: What are they trying to do, get white people to riot? Don't they know white people don't riot. I mean why would we, we are white and that is the best thing to be in the world.


Obama's Reptiloid Master: A riot of white people is known as a "Woodstock" or "Texas Tech football game."

fireclown: i'll start the criticism:  this is during the BIGGEST TERRURIST THREAT EVAR!  Or so I'm told.  I would like to humbly suggest that this is exactly the kind of time that a president should be hunkered near the batphone with his advisers.


This is 2013.  The batphone is a Blackberry.  It goes with him.

Danger Mouse: The Stealth Hippopotamus: The President of the United States is never on vacation. Ever.

I don't care if he is in Crawford or Martha's Vineyard.

I do.

The cost difference between Bush's vacations and Obama's is astronomical.

The Africa Trip was $100 million dollars.

You can't take a tour of  our White House because there's no money.  And Workers are being sent home without pay. But Fartbongo finds plently of money for celebrity vacations and  parties.


The efforts to challenge Obamacare are over 100 million dollars.

Even assuming your cost is correct - Obama's trip to Africa was a working trip. That's more than I can say for the Republicans in Congress .

A few years ago I was out on Nantucket Sound fishing with my Father in his 18 foot flats boat.  It was the Summer and we were going after Stripers and Blues with fly rods.  It was mostly "run and gun" looking for blitzes which can be tough but considering my Father being diagnosed with Lyme disease a few weeks earlier we were mostly just happy to get out.

The meds he was on for the Lyme made his skin very sensitive to the sun.  So before we went out on the water we made sure he was sunscreened up and we got him set up with the Columbia PFG UPF50 long-sleeve shirts, pants, and a balaclava to protect his face.

There was a light breeze and we were doing well when we noticed a few helicopters in the area.  Now, one helicopter isn't a big thing.  We live in Massachusetts and Medflights are as common as they can get.  But when you start to see a few at the same time and that low to the water....

So I look over at my Father and we have a short conversation about what it might be when it dawns on us that it's probably the Secret Service doing recon for Obama landing on the island.  At this point in time they've circled the Vineyard and are coming back around like they were doing widening circles into the Sound.

It takes a few seconds to dawn on him and then he starts scrambling to take off the balaclava while I'm laughing my butt off.

We wound out a decent day of fishing and took a few Bluefish for the smoker last night.

Bush took more vacations but presidential vacations are not an outrage and they are constantly working anyway, so something.

That job sure does age a person, lots of vacays or not.

So the President has to pay the rent himself for his vacation, and the big "news" here is that taxpayers still have to pay for Secret Service to guard him, even while on vacation?

Yawn.

I suspect you haven't been paying attention. The news isn't that he is on vacation, but more of the standard "OMG this guy is spending all of our moneys on hotels in europe and fancy vacations".

Obama is being targeted as wasting our money for things that are normal and expected for presidents. The joke is that they are only biatching about this because he is a black guy being all uppity and stuff.

Its a heartwarming peice about what Presidents do on vacation when Bush was in office. Its a fnancial analasys of the vacation and eery inconvenience that it will cause now that Obama is in office.

Bush in Office: Aww, look at Bush chop through that brush...(on that multi-million dollar ranch that I'm sure has paid workers who normally do this shiat.)

Obama in Office: ...our investigative team has hired a team of CPAs to comb through the Obama vacation expenses and we found that Malia bought a brand new bottle of shampoo for the trip WHEN SHE ALREADY HAD SHAMPOO AT HOME. While taxpayers are forced to put a little water in their bottle of Head and Shoulders to make it stretch, the Obama girls are living it up with a new bottle of hair product normally only used by white women. Stay tuned to find out how many days YOU would have to work to be able to afford the Obama vacation. Hint: you won't live long enough.

tenpoundsofcheese: bigsmellypenis: How is it news when the president takes the same vacation to the same place as every other president?

...just curious

Who was taking so many vacations when we had over 4 years of incredibly high unemployment, declining wages, more discouraged people quitting the workforce, severe problems in the mid east, huge student debt, 16T in overall debt, companies and unions trying to get exemptions for Obamacare while the government gets special treatment?

Just curious.


Seems to have got some things done during that time, like coming out the worst depression since the 30's. Caused by, oh, I forget which party was in charge when you guys bravely stormed across the dessert with a coalition of the willing al those years ago.

You know what detractors should really be concerned about?  Not that the secret service is paid to watch the President while he's on vacation, but that they're paid to watch him while he's asleep.  That lazy good for nothing is lying prostrate and drooling onto a pillow and the tax payers are being forced (at gun point!) to pay for his protection.  Imagine all the money that could be saved if we did not guard the president anytime he's conscious!

Oh I see your mistake. You incorrectly assumed I cared about Bush Vacation Policy.

I'm happy to clear this up for you: every vacation that a sitting President has is a working vacation.

If that means that the President would enjoy another round of golf in between the daily security briefings, on-going wars, and all of the other crazy things they're assigned to handle then, gentleman, the next round is on me.

My issue is with this absurd attack on the vacation spending. We have significant waste in government. Spending over 100 million dollars to challenge something for the sole purpose of political theater is much more of a waste than a presidential vacation. And considering how much Obama has helped in reducing the deficit - I'm willing to give it to him. I also assume you realize that the actual vacation is paid by the President?

 Poutrage over Obama!?!? It must be a day that ends in Y.
Seriously, they freak out when he wakes up and takes a shiat in the morning. Although it is funny to see people on a daily basis who hate him soooooooooooooooooo much because he's black try to channel all that racism through his daily routine. There's just not enough venom for what he's actually done so it comes off sounding insane (oh you hate him because he ate a fancy dinner? that seems legit). You keep expecting that at some point it'll burst and they'll just blurt out "HE'S A N*GGER!!"

It wasn't a scam.  I was one of the organizers.  The money ended up in 4 charities: Biden Breast Health Initiative, Wounded Warrior Project, GLAAD, and Doctors Without Borders. We raised about $15,000, after the incentives and fees, it was about $10,000 total to those 4 charities.

Fun fact: The Crawford Ranch was built during GWB's first election campaign specifically to provide photo ops, and it was built with the latest environmental tech in order to cut off any environment-related jabs from Al Gore.

When President Bush's final term came to an end, he said he had no intention of going back there... Evidently Laura didn't like staying there and they now live in a Dallas suburb.

That brush must really be piling up!

I'm fine with a shortened version of the word "vacation," since few Americans get a full-length one from their employers, anyway.

"KEEP WORKING, PLEBES!!!! YOU KNOW HOW MUCH OFF-TIME THE WORKERS GET IN MUMBAI? 15 MINUTES A YEAR, AND THAT'S NOT PAID FOR AT THEIR RATE OF 7 CENTS A DAY!"


If you don't like it, you can take as long of a vacation as you like.  Obama will even make it a paid vacation.
