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.

  • Lol when was the last time a president DIDN'T take a vaction? Anyone? James Madison took a 4 month vacation in 1812. Every president has taken at least 1 vacation while in office. Get over it. This is ridiculous.

  • WE ARE IN A RECESSION there are people who have lost their jobs or are currently loosing their jobs, that are homeless that are majorly struggling to make ends meat. While our beloved president goes off and party. To me it seems like he has the attitude that Marie Antoinette had, let them eat cake. Oh and booklover all you have to do is google it. The vacation is all over the place.

  • When a man who sits and says that the wealthy has mad too much money and tries to shame them for their lavish lifestyles then turns around and spends 4 MILLION dollars, NOT OF HIS OWN MONEY, but on the back of taxpayers, that he says he cares deeply for and understands their pains. Which by the way has absolutely NOTHING to do with BUSH OR ROMNEY. He is a hypocrite. For he is doing the very thing that the wealthy do.  However he is worse than a hypocrite, because at least the wealthy use their OWN money!  As far as Bush and Romney goes, if they were in office right now and doing the same thing.  IT would really tick me off as well.  cont.....

  • Who's holding Bush up as an example to follow? Why can't we just stick to the subject?

  • Those who criticize the cost of Obama’s Christmas vacation don’t want you to know that George W. Bush spent at least $20 million taxpayer dollars just on flights to his ranch in Crawford.

    The right wing has been outraged at the four million dollar plus price tag for Obama’s family Christmas vacation, and they constantly hold George W. Bush up as an example of how thrifty a president should be when going on vacation.

    The problem is that W. wasn’t thrifty. He was the most expensive vacation president in US history. Not only did Bush spend more days on vacation than any other president, but he used Air Force One more often while on vacation than any other president.

  • His income was 1.7million last year but he is taking a 4 million dollar vacation? Where are you getting your information? You need to direct some of your irrational anger toward President George w. bush he was given a balanced budget and 4 percent unemployment. He is the one who got the country into this mess and you are angry that President Obama is not a magician who can wave a wand and make it all better for you? Grow up!

  • Are all of you conservative Obama haters depressive personalities? Bipolar?The negativity and the blind hatred is disturbing. The replies that are "downers" posted here are indicative of the need for a visit to a shrink or at least an Anger Management session. Its ridiculous that you criticize THIS President for doing what other Presidents have done and you know there have been other recessions and economic problems in the last 50-60 years but they didn't stop going on vacations ,etc. Its just THIS President that gets the bashing. Give it a rest. Or get help.


    LOL! I just hate that Obama doesn't have any more balls than the rest of them. How sad to be so weak you can't break the mold.
