What makes me infinitely more pissed is the way the president is handling the "fiscal cliff" negotiations.


ok. but, my thread is not about the fiscal negotiations. start your own.

He can vacation where he wants to. He's the president. But he needs to start acting more like a president when it comes to these fiscal cliff negotiations.

Doesn't bother me, but I can see where it may seem disingenuous to some that a guy who claims to "represent" the common man would have yet another very expensive, luxurious vacation on the taxpayer dime.

Perks of the job, though.

Because a man of His status deserves so much more.
He gives so much to The People.
He deserves better than a lousy four million dollar vacation.
Especially during The Winter Holiday Celebration Period.

The State always allocates resources more efficiently than the profit-oriented private sector.
This will be no exception,I'm sure.

I don't like him preaching austerity and proclaiming that everyone needs to give their fair share...when the people he preaches to, hardly contribute anything. It is the antithesis of "fair".

A 4 million vacation, that is the cost of flying in a Presidential entourage. It would cost 4 million to fly to Laramie, Wyoming. I haven't quite figured out his "timing" on vacations though. It seems like he wants to be away from Washington when the big decisions are being made or negotiated.

last year taxpayers spent $1.4 billion on the first family

The People have no issue with this.
Only the reactionaries question trivial things like this.
Ours is a Brave New World.
It requires Brave New Spending.
Forward !

There is no anti-vacation movement.
There is only an anti-anti-vacation movement.
Three thosusand people vehemently oppose the vacation.
Three million people vehemently oppose those who oppose the vacation.
I am among the first who oppose the people vehemently opposed to those who oppose the vacation.
