What do you want him to do specifically? Congress has shown they will block anything he even talks about. We do still have a 3 branch government you know.

you Right wingers are in a tizzy about how the First Family is on vacation in Hawaii and how much it costs the taxpayers. After doing a little bit of research, I found this gem from last year.


Bush Spent 5 Times More On Flights To Texas Than Obama‘s Christmas Vacation Costs

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.

During Bush’s two terms, the cost of operating Air Force One ranged from $56,800 to $68,000 an hour. Bush used Air Force One 77 times to go to his ranch in Crawford, TX. Using the low end cost of $56,800, Media Matters calculated that each trip to Crawford cost taxpayers $259,687 each time, and $20 million total for Bush’s ranch flights.

If cost of the flight was the only expense involved to taxpayers Bush’s vacations would still seem rather economical, but there is more, much more. Unlike the Obama’s $4 million Christmas vacation price tag, which includes the cost of everything from transportation to accommodations for the First Family, the White House staff, and the White House press corps, Bush’s numbers only include the cost of flying the president to Crawford. The cost of transporting and accommodating staff, media, friends and family is not included in Bush’s vacation numbers.

I not sure how this helps Obama.. Bush spent 20 million in 8 years. Obama spent 4 million on just this one trip.. According to the numbers you give...with no source. But That does not seem good for Obama.

The more I read that "article" the more terrible it seems.

They are comparing the cost of every trip bush ever took, to this ONE trip Obama did.
Then It goes on to say bush trips cost 250,000 each while Obamas cost 4 million?!

Obama needs to get off the golf course. Regardless of cost..i dont care if its free..You can't get congress to act if you don't even talk to them...

Number one quit hiding his past. Number two go to work on occasion. Number three quit hating on the successful. Number four quit lying. Number five quit stealing our money then telling us we aren't grateful. Number six, knock it off with the socialism crap. I can go on.

Again I can care less about Bush. I'm not a fan. Obama and his family cost the taxpayers $1.5 billion per year. Bet you didn't hear that one on MSNBC. How about sharing with us when Obama isn't on vacation or campaigning. Don't you think a CEO of a company would be canned if he went golfing during a company crisis. I hope this bum wasn't as bad a community organizer as he is president.

no bigot you had no problem with bush because he was white, your problem is you cannot stand the fact that there's a black man who's president of the united states.

Your problem is that you have nothing to defend Obama with. Bush card and the race card in one post.

Cost of Obama's partying per year...$1.5 billion. Cost for the British to support the Royal Family...$60 million. From you4 post I can tell that math isn't your strong point. So here you go, for what it costs us for the Obama's for 8 years, the British can support the Royal Family for 200 years.
