    That bastard.

    Next thing you know he'll do something really dickish like have the navy land him on an aircraft carrier in a fake flight suit with a misplaced sense of accomplishment or something.

    Though I don't think Presidents should never take vacations and I do completely understand that a president taking a vacation is going to be inherently more expensive than any normal family heading out for a week, I do think this is a prime example of the sort of thing that many people shit all over Bush for.

    I also think it's a bit problematic for a president who has made such a case for belt-tightening and fiscal responsibility to be going on such a vacation.

    I think the first family could send a really good message to those of us who would LOVE to get away for a weekend by staying in and making it in a blockbuster weekend or something like that.

    It would win him a lot of brownie points with a lot of people if he said "The family and I would love to take some time off BUT given the present circumstances, challenges we're facing and the fact that so many millions of Americans can't afford to take a vacation themselves, we simply can't justify the expense to the people of the United States. We'll be "vacationing at home this year like the rest of you. Hopefully, when our economy recovers, we can ALL get away for a while and enjoy the fruits of our labour and reflect on the sacrifices we all made during that time to help us get to a point where we could reasonably afford to take time off."

    But hey, that's just me.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Every president goes on vacation just like they lie to us about what they are going to do. Why should Obama be different?

    Seriously I don't understand the need for a vacation. They still work. They still have foreign leaders visit, have early morning briefings, make speaches, etc.

    I think Michelle and the kids would have a better time without their dad.

    However I agree if we are in such serious times, the leader should not be taking a vacation.

    BTW if Obama is supposed to be different and better than Bush, how come he and his followers always defend his actions with a "well Bush did it...."

    Huge deficit? Well Bush had a trillion dollar one so we just decided to double it in 1/10th of the time?

    Waste government money? Bush landed on a carrier so its ok to waste more money?

    Vacation? Well Bush did it so its fine for Obama to do the same.

    He was supposed change. Seems to be the same guy, instead of kissing Cheney's ass, he licks Pelosi's vagina.

    yep and I think that whole idea is completely lost on the passionate supporters of Obama. They all hated Bush and everything about him. They believe Obama stands for change. Yet, as a show of support and in defense of Obama's policies and actions, which are quite similar to Bush's, say "well, Bush did the same thing."

    it's like they aren't even hearing themselves.

    So what, he wants to take a vacation and have a nice and safe place for his kids to play and swim. What is he supposed to do stay at The Holiday Inn Express. At least we aren't footing the legal bills for a bunch of Rape accusations like our previous black president from Arkansas.

    somehow I'm guessing the freaking white house is about the safest place on earth.

    and again, inherently, there isn't a big deal with wanting to take his family on vacation...but given the circumstances, there are smarter things he could have done in terms of appealing to the citizens.

    As for Clinton...again, another example of "that president did this crap, so it's no big deal that my president does this crap."

    What happened to "change?"

    Same old bullshit. Your party did it so its ok for my party to do the same thing. They can't look past party lines enough to look out for the best interests of the country.

    This is why our country is going down quicker than Monica Lewinsky on Billy boy.

    I'm sure the White House is the safest place but a change in scenery is always nice. Maybe instead of skipping vacation to save a little money he could skip his Health Care tour around the country that is wasting money. He made his case on TV. Isn't that enough.
    Anyway I'm sure as hell not making excuses for the guy, I would love to be able to beat up on him for this but unfortunately this isn't even a drop in the bucket compared to the damage he has already done and will continue to do.

    Granted, I live in a bit of a void, being stuck in a truck for days on end, but...what damage has he done??? I'm not trying to be condesending or prick-ish. I'm just curious...as I really haven't had time to read a lot of news lately.

    Have you seen our deficit the ROI from it? Obama can rent that house for an entire year and it probably wouldn't be more than one minute of Stimulus money
