We are, of course!!!!! I'm sick to death of those free loaders. He's sure good at redistributing the wealth. Trouble of it is that most of us don't get to play, just pay. :mad:

It would have been a hell of a lot less had she not decided to take off early and without the President.


The flight costs alone double if not triple when they fly separately.

Not to mention they went to their own residences in those states.

They weren't adding to the cost by renting some mansion.

Okay, I wanted to see how accurate that information was because that would be a good point. Keep in mind that's not the only issue. We're paying Presidents to go on vacation. It does appear you're right for the most part. Now, Reagan often went to a friend's place in CA. That probably saved money on a place to stay, but it's still vacation time.

http://www.factcheck.org/2010/01/president-obamas-vacation-days/


President Obama has spent all or part of 26 days "on vacation" during his first year as president,


President Reagan, in 1981, spent all or part of 42 days away from the White House "on vacation" at his home in Santa Barbara, Calif, according to Knoller. President Reagan and his wife, Nancy, also spent three or four days around New Year’s Day each year in Palm Springs, Calif., at the home of philanthropist Walter Annenberg. (In 1993 the late Mr. Annenberg founded the nonpartisan Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, which is FactCheck.org’s parent organization.)


President George W. Bush spent even more time away from the presidential mansion in the nation’s capital than Reagan. Of the 77 total "vacation" trips the former president made to his Texas ranch while in office, nine of them — all or part of 69 days — came during his first year as president in 2001, according to Knoller.

Bush’s father, President George H.W. Bush, spent less time "on vacation" during his first year than his son, but spent more days than President Obama.


But at least two recent presidents — by Knoller’s count — took less "vacation" time during their first year than President Obama — Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.

Okay, so that's a good point about using tax payer money to go to expensive places such as Hawaii and that it's not their own residence. However, I think paid days off also count.

Well... seems like I found the source for the funds. Just logged in and checked my email, and was notified that the Air Force just changed its High Year of Tenure for E4-E6.

E-4 got changed from 10 years to 8.

E-5 got changed from 20 years to 15.

E-6 got changed from 22 years to 20.

So just like that I had my secured retirement unsecured. Got 6 more tries for E-6 till I get the boot. I'm not concerned, I'll make that no problem, but it still blows.

Factcheck.org? You want me to trust a liberal trash site like that?

Are you REALLY that stupid? Wait don't answer.

Golf outings...vacations to Spain...bus tours....Martha's Vineyard...Hawaii....Australia....normal people call those vacation days.

Only political saps like you would see them as anything else.

Oh and Reagan didn't stay at a "friends place" you idiot. He stayed at his ranch...paid for with his money...referred to as the Western White House.

The CBS story that Mark Knoller put out...that is the basis for your stupid politifact "check" has been debunked too.

You really should update your bookmarked Libtard talking points Bridget.



Okay, so that's a good point about using tax payer money to go to expensive places such as Hawaii and that it's not their own residence. However, I think paid days off also count.

Given how little he actually does on any given day when you look at his published agenda...EVERY DAY is a paid day off for this President.

That's as knee jerk Liberal a response as I've seen out of Wee Wilbur or Nova.

Welcome to the club.


How about we don't like her because she's a hypocritical snob?

She talks about making sacrifices while jetting off to Spain....campaigns with her hubby's talking points about the bad economy unemployment etc while wearing 5,000 dollar dresses and needlessly spending tax payer dollars to fly separately from her husband so SHE can start HER vacation in Hawaii or Martha's Vineyard earlier.


How about the fact she scolds you and me about goig to McDonalds....bitches about food choices in public schools while dining on pizza cooked by a chef flown in from Chicago...scarfing down fries from Five Guys and sending her kids to an exclusive PRIVATE academy with alums like Chelsea Clinton Amy Carter and Al Gore III?

Or how about the fact she had the audacity to say that until 3 years ago she'd never been proud of her country?

Yeah...all of that and the best you can come up with is that we don't like her cause she's black.

You're right that Chelsea went to the same school; Al Gore III also graduated from Sidwell after starting at his father's alma mater, St. Alban's. You must be too young to remember the Carter administration; there was much to-do about Amy being sent to DC public schools. By the time she graduated from high school it was from a private school in Atlanta, after her father's term was over.

Of course, it's not worth mentioning (is it?) that Marvin and Neil Bush also went to St. Alban's and that their Dad and brothers George W. and Jeb went to Phillips Andover. Tricia and Julie Nixon went to the National Cathedral School, the girls' counterpart to St. Alban's. Brit Hume is another St. Alban's alum.

The way you deride her appearance makes me uncomfortable and puts me on my guard. I feel like you would say the same hurtful things, the same insults about me if I didn't have anything in common with you. Note I said because she is LIBERAL and black, it's the same shit gator would do, just milder. The liberal, to me, is the predicate. . . you probably wouldn't see Michelle Obama like that if she was conservative. But - - once you figure out someone's liberal, all bets are off. . . I get that, but sometimes you get some friendly fire in the mix. I feel hurt, a little disgusted and kinda like either I've got people on the left who call any black person who deviates and uncle tom, and ... this bullshit.


Tx, it's almost if you can't wait for a moment to say," See, she IS just like them!" Won't even wait for a clarification. I hope you fix that jerk in your knee because it's not always right.

Have you ever thought she was naturally built like that, Am? There are people here who are constantly losing the battle of the bulge because that's the way God made 'em. Maybe Michelle is one of those people.

She IS a hypocrite...but it's like if I dare speak up and say that I feel uncomfortable because I know I look more like her than any conventional standard of beauty applied, and based on some peoples aptitude towards snap judgement, if they simply saw me on the street, I'd probably have the same things said about me.

I can't recall First Lady Hillary Clinton ever suggesting that you put down the Big Mac or eating an apple a day; and yet the crowd on Free Republic and Limbaugh's devotees routinely made nasty remarks about her weight and appearance. One FR poster even named himself/herself "Hillary's lovely legs", a reference to her problem with cellulite.

For their part, I was routinely policing DU years ago for the personal remarks made there about Republicans. It seemed that despite being the world sensitivity police on issues of race and Islam, the DU crowd was more than willing to engage in or ignore remarks about the weight, age, or saggy skin of white male Republicans.

We don't give a hang what color you are and you should be able to tell by now, after reading in here, that *true* Conservatives are not racist.

Hell's bell's, a goodly number of us, me included, were hoping for Herman Cain to become the nominee.

That is why what you said with your "black" comment re our dislike for Michelle ... was an undeserved slap in the face to us.

I never understood the "pickles" thing. I always assumed it had something to do with Morey Amsterdam's wife on the Dick Van Dyke Show.

Backhanded reference to Laura Bush and a car wreck she was involved in when she was a teenager.

The urban legend among your brethren on the left is that she was drunk. (i.e. "pickled")

Let's not forget too the absolute blood lust on the left anytime a Conservative gets sick.

Remember the NPR correspondent that wished Jesse Helms grandchildren would get AIDS and die?


We could REALLY delve into racist remarks and actions by looking at how people like Condi Rice...Colin Powell and Michael Steele have been treated by the tolerant minority loving left.

Michelle’s Solo Hawaii Trip Likely to Exceed $100,000

by Keith Koffler on December 15, 2011, 11:49 am

First lady Michelle Obama’s separate voyage to Hawaii promises to cost taxpayers tens of thousand in extra dollars, as her separate entourage and hefty flying costs pile on the costs.

The military jet flight alone is priced at more than $60,000, according to government estimates. But that’s only the beginning. The additional cargo flight that often accompanies the first lady on such a trip must also be paid for, as well as the limos and other accoutrements it will contain.

As she will be separated from the presidential security bubble, Michelle will require her own entourage of Secret Service protection, in addition to the staffers who will be leaving early to go to Hawaii with her.

The total tab will certainly be in excess of $100,000, and possibly quite a bit more.

Did Bo Return From Hawaii for Obama’s Photo Op?

by Keith Koffler on December 22, 2011, 11:53 am

Updated 1:43 pm ET

Bo Obama was supposed to be in Hawaii. Instead, he showed up at President Obama’s side Wednesday shopping for treats at Pet Smart

According to Michelle Obama’s press office, the first dog was planning to go to Hawaii with the first lady and the Obama daughters. The Chicago Sun-Times reported that he in fact had gone there. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser quoted an eyewitness who said he had seen the Portuguese Water Dog having his walk.

So what is Bo doing back in Washington shopping at PetSmart?

Either these reports are mistaken, or Bo was told his vacation was over and that he had to return to the White House to keep a lonely president company – and participate in a silly photo op presenting Obama as an average guy who likes to head out to the PetSmart.

If Bo returned from Hawaii, who paid for his flight?

It’s possible he hitched a ride on a return flight of the Air Force plane that brought Michelle from Hawaii, which wouldn’t have really added much to Michelle’s more than $100,000 price tag for her solo trip.

Or maybe he commandeered his own Air Force jet.

The difference here is you are talking about "the left", some floating entity that encompasses everything you disagree with.

Cuesi was specifically talking about comments made on this site by specific posters which made her feel uncomfortable. I don't even think, as far as I can tell, that she called anyone racist, only that racial undertones touched her nerves because of her sense of racial awareness.

Now, if you want to talk about what left-wingers on this website have said, that would be fair, but throwing out claims about "all leftists" as a counter-argument against comments made by posters are this site is not fair.

For once, he's not. . .

The comments about Michelle's appearance comes to me in the same vein that some outsider's comments about a Southerner being inbred and illiterate would come to you. You know its not true and it may not apply to you , but it still makes you mad that people think that way and think that's funny. Or okay. Hearing white people deride a black woman's appearance just brings up way too many unpleasant feelings and puts me in that same frame. So, just how ABC felt slapped when I said what I said, I felt slapped first.

And I tend not to take a slap well. I slapped back. I lashed out with some ill advised words because I was sick of it.

The difference is..A) I didn't make any of the body comments. B) I could care less what stereotype some ignorant Liberal uses towards me or where I'm from in general.

Your response was totally out of line...especially given how racial bigotry from all sides is NOT tolerated here.

Snide or knee jerk...doesn't matter...you falsely labelled ALL of us racists.

And instead of an apology...which would have been the smart thing to do...you're trying to justify your moronic retort.

Just like the Libs you claim not to be.

I'd expect that crap from Bridget/Lanie...not you.

A Republican congressman from Wisconsin has offered a personal apology to First Lady Michelle Obama after he was overheard at an airport lounge criticizing her "large posterior."

Obama, Sensenbrenner said loudly, "lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself."

Sensenbrenner made a similar remark at the Wisconsin church he was referencing in his phone call, telling attendees there that Obama has a "big butt."<portions snipped>

Scene II Act III:

Barack Obama: Honey, now that you are going to be First Lady, you need to choose an issue to advocate; something you care about but is so inoffesive that no one could find fault.

Michelle Obama: Oh God. Can't I help you lobby Congress? I am not a dish towel.

Staff Member 1: Remember what happened to Hillary Clinton?

Michelle Obama: Yea. She became a senator and almost won the Democratic nomination for president.

Staff Member 1: Well ... sure. Later.

Michelle Obama: Never mind. I don't have any political ambition. I just want to help. What can I do?

Staff Member 2: You need to be not-scary so choose something that isn't frightening like gang violence. You also need to avoid controversial issues like teen pregnancy.

Michelle Obama: Those are serious issues that need to be addressed.

Staff Member 1: Of course. But not by you. You have to have something no one would object to. Something everyone is against like ... I don't know .... killing baby seals.

Barack Obama: No go. Canada is an important ally and they are already edgy about my NAFTA rhetoric from the campaign.

Staff Member 1: How about puppy killing then?

Barack Obama: Do people do that?

Michelle Obama: Look. I get it. Let me think a minute.

Staff Member 2: How about children? Everyone wants happy and healthy children. Work with that.

Michelle Obama: OK, that sounds good. Healthy children.

Barack Obama: There is the obesity problem.

Staff Member 1: I don't know. I think the puppy thing is better.

Michelle Obama: No, I am going with healthy children. It is something I care about and it will give me a good reason to hit the Oprah Circuit. Talk to mothers and work with nutrition experts. I'll even plant a garden. It will be nice. And seriously, who could object to that?

Do you even know the definition of racist, tx? What I said wasn't racist by any definition except an emotional one; the one you tend to ascribe to liberals.

If I said it, who are YOU to tell me what my reason is? I gave you my reason. If you don't like it, that's not my fault.

Well, I'm not Lanie. I don't grovel. And I think you should check what the word racist means, because like most liberals, it seems you think it means something it doesn't.

What I said wasn't racist by any definition except an emotional one; the one you tend to ascribe to liberals.

You mean like how you ascribed an racism racism to every Conservative on this board by saying that we dislike Ms. Obama because "she's black"?


If I said it, who are YOU to tell me what my reason is? I gave you my reason. If you don't like it, that's not my fault.

Who are you to be judge and jury on what OUR reasons are for not liking Obama? If you don't like our reasoning thats not OUR fault.

And it's certainly not your place to try and imply it's because of skin color.

Yet in typical Liberal fashion you get to ascribe the most wild outlandish claims to our dislikes of someone and when we call you out on it we're just supposed to shut up and accept it?

No fucking chance kid.


Well, I'm not Lanie. I don't grovel. And I think you should check what the word racist means, because like most liberals, it seems you think it means something it doesn't.

You're like her in the fact that neither one of you are smart enough to know that when you've dug yourself into a hole you put down the shovel and stop. You both just dig faster.

Again I know what it means. You called all of us that because your widdle sensitive feelings got hurt cause we were bad mouthing your girl.

Got it.

When are you going to realize what a moronic thing you accused all of us of and apologize like an adult.
