So Obama wants to share the wealth? Really.

We are in a recession and our beloved president and his fellow politicians keep talking about how the "rich NEED to share their wealth". Really who are the rich exactly? Is our president rich, after all he is planning on taking a $4 MILLION DOLLAR vacation in HAWAII!!! Why does this seem to NOT BOTHER ANY ONE? Why should it bother people you may ask? HELLO it is OUR tax dollars PAYING FOR THIS LAVISH VACATION WHILE WE ARE IN A RECESSION!!!!!!  NO balanced budget, oh he is talking about cutting backs, HELLO WHY NOT START WITH YOUR VACATION MR... PRESIDENT???????   I am just blown away that people think this man gives a damn about any of us...  We are just a bunch of usefull idiots to the man.  If you want a link just google, it is all over the place,  I don't want to provide a link that some of you may feel is unacceptable.

  • FFA....It isn't the fact he is going on vacation, its the timing. We are on the verge of falling over the "fiscal cliff". We could end up in a worse reccession the we were before. And this time fucking Obama cannot blame Bush, and neither can anypther Obama supporter. We have the chance that everyone's paychecks in January will be smaller than they've been because of the income tax increases. Further shrinking workers' take-home pay would be the expiration of the payroll tax cut. Then if lawmakers fail to protect the middle class from having to pay the Alternative Minimum Tax for tax year 2012 by Dec. 31, the IRS has said it would have to tell more than 60 million taxpayers that they may not file or receive a refund until it changes its systems, which could take until late March. Although its not likely thje lawmakers will fail in protecting the AMT, but if not we are will be hurting

  • I see nothing wrong with the president taking vacations, we have places for them to go and relax, such as Camp David. Spending $4 million dollars of tax payer money during a recession is the ISSUE. What part of that do you NOT get Free? WE DO NOT HAVE THE MONEY FOR OUR PRESIDENT TO WASTE ON FRIVOULOUS VACATIONS!!!!!

  • >According to the US Treasury, since 2009, they have paid out $72 billion in refunds on average in the first two months of the year. With all this uncertainty, there has been some damper on economic activity. So, of the time Obama could take a vacation, he picks now? WTF?? Is the kinda leader you all want? A guy who takes off to a paradise to which many Americans wish they could go on vacation with their families. Instead of worrying if they will lose their homes cause of the possibility of an extra $2000 taken out of their paychecks. Or worry if they will lose heat cause they can't afford to the electric company. So Obama rather go to Hawaii then stay here and work out a deal, then when it is done, he could go off on vacation.

  • Who gives a shit about Romney? He is old news. I rather voted for Ron Paul. Neither choice this election season was good. But at this rater, I do not think Romney could have done any worse. Or at the very least blame it on Obama...
