Squawk of the Day - Feb. 28, 2013

"To the person that said the American people don’t pay for Obama’s vacations: They must be living under a rock somewhere down by the Flint River. We pay for every penny of it."

It is not now much TIME they are gone from Washington, BUT how much money it cost the taxpayers to keep them on Vacation. If spending tax money is not an issue for YOU then paying Taxes can't be either. The IRS will gladly accept your checks.....The original squawk it was written by a TRUE Dumbacrate.

The alternate reality uninformed liberal democrats live in will not allow them to accept or comprehend logical thought or education. It's a true vacuum.

Actually, it is OK with me if he would go to Hawaii and stay. He can surf and hang out with his chom brothers. The MSM could stay with him. Biden could go shoot his gun in the air. Then maybe we could stop the slide into bankruptcy.

We have never had a president to my 64 yrs of knowledge that spends as much on vacations, valentine dinner on his families as our current dictator wanna be does. How much longer are we going to allow this to go on?

Don't forget that President Jackass just spent 1m dollars to golf with Tiger Woods. Nero golfs while Rome burns......

One has to remember that the 45% of the population that pays no federal income taxes are not having to worry about how "their" tax money is being spent.

You can keep pretending that Obama vacations more, costing the taxpayers more, or you can click on the link and read some "inconvenient" numbers. Trips to Crawford weren't free, and it was expensive for President Cheney to shoot his friends in the face.

"But Faux News said..." LOL!!

The Repube led Congress will work 172 days this year. Now whose vacations and travel are we paying for? www.house.gov; www.senate.gov. Count the days yourself.

Oh and

"President Obama at the end of November 2012 will have spent 84 days on vacation since he became president on January 20, 2009.

To compare, at that point of their terms, George Bush at spent 180 days at his ranch, Reagan spent 112 vacation days at his ranch, and Bill Clinton had spent the least time off -- 28 days. Knoller says President George W. Bush spent 879 days on holiday during his eight years in office." www.answers.com>

So, who is paying for who again?

"To compare, at that point of their terms, George Bush spent 180 days at his ranch, Reagan spent 112 vacation days at his ranch"

The key thing here is they spent X amount of days at THEIR ranch, not Hawaii, Bahamas, Paris, Africa or the Golf course. I imagine it costs less to stay at YOUR OWN ranch than at a vacation resort don't you think?

Obama can't control where his hometown is. Yes, his vacations are costly ($20 million), but Reagan's vacations were also costly at $8 million. However, let's recognize that this is still peanuts compared to annual spending that exceeds $1 trillion.

Obama is on vacation even when he is in the white house. He's either sitting back listening to rap music or shooting hoops on the basketball court.
