Glad to see that the Obama's paid for their children's swing set. Not to take anything away from them - they are children after all - but considering the amount of people who cannot afford homes let alone swing sets, to have put that cost on the shoulders of the taxpayers would have been unconscionable

what a wise investment!! I look forward to walking
by the White House this spring and hearing squeals
of delight from Sasha and Malia.

As a regular critic of Obama's policies, philosophies and actions I have to say that he and Michelle appear to be great parents and wonderful role models. I hope the kids enjoy the swing set and use it in good health.

Because they don't expect to invite you over to the Whitehouse.

Yes there are more newsworthy stories than this. You should have skipped over this article if you don't appreciate it.

You people are so cruel. These are little children, you have truely lost your soul.

The Obama's had money before they got to the White House, I doubht very seriously if they need any money from the Stimulus Plan. That money is for you poor country bumpkins in the South, the Mid-West and the Bible Belt states. The Red Republican poor states, the poorest states in the country.

Their father is bankrupting the country, but don't worry! Malia and Sasha have a new swing set!

Maybe Malia and Sasha can invite all their classmates over that won't be able to afford to go to their school anymore because their father and the Democrats killed the school voucher program.

Just a few things Obama said.

No pork in stimulus bill Actually he very loudly and definitevely said not one single piece of pork

If you make over 200k your taxes will not go up one dime.(We will see)

The girls are going to get a dog.( Holy geez the most powerful man in the world can't get a damn dog. Don't give me he's too busy baloney)

Typical Long Island racist remarks!! Doesn't surprise me at all. I purposely clicked on the comments to view what I thought would be insensitive and vile remarks. I grew up here but my children will never grow up next to the likes of you!!

it was part of the stimulus package.
Lets put this in perspective.
1 trillion is 1/3 of our deficit.
take 1 thousand dollar bills and start stacking.
you would be stacking for almost 70 miles.
I'm really happy that the new first lady and these awful kids have custom tailored cloths and swing sets.
meanwhile some people that once served this country proudly are in their homes freezing to death because they can't pay for heat.
Obama and his wife and kids are a joke.
A Harvard educated black man, his lawyer wife and their handsome and charming daughters are billionaires and the first family of your country.

A black man decides more matters on this country and your life than you'd ever count...and it drives you absolutely crazy.

There are few things more entertaining than a lonely, p $$/y hurt big0t.

You've been in a coma the past eight years and are unaware of a war in Iraq costing $50 billion a month and was NOT made as part of the federal budget, right?

Deficit spending on defense and Republican pork, mostly to kill Iraqis and 4,000 innocent Americans, just slipped under your radar, right?

This whole crisis is a result of an administration five weeks in office?

Where's the picture of Michelle, swinging from the top bar and eating bananas?
I hope you're not a mother because it's sad to think of a child being raised by such a vile, cold and hateful being. Let's hope God hasn't blessed you with the ability to bear children because it's ignorant minorities in the world like you that stagnate tolerance in America. The world is a truly colorful place of which racism has no place - it shall be overcome.
