Those are your words Mike not mine. As TEW was pointing out about Obama...<quoted text>As if Obama is the first and only president to get this. Thanks for the propaganda.

All the things I was pointing out were things, that if you or I wanted them personally we' have to foot the bill ourselves, but because the taxpayers pay their taxes, including for those that don't, we give the president a free home, a free car, a free phone, a free plane, security services etc...etc...etc..as perks of the gig. If you will humor me, imagine the costs of thoses perks if you were funding them yourself 24/7. Since Obama isn't personally stroking the check for the utlities and so on, his net worth would grow fiscally. I am sure you will find some reason to argue about that too, so fire away.
