Is it just me, or do the Obama's act more like they have won the lotto, rather than hold the highest position of economic, political, and international importance in the country and the world?

It seems to me that all they are concerned about are taking vacations, playing golf and shooting hoops with people like Tiger Woods or the LA Lakers, and rubbing elbows with all the big names in Hollywood and sports.

It is ridiculous that Michelle Obama has nothing better to do than hand out awards at the Oscars....she shouldn't even be there. That is so undignified...but then again, I guess you can the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl....she is too ignorant to know any better and has no idea of the role that she is supposed to portray.

They can't even take a vacation together....Barack Hussein goes to Florida to plau golf with Tiger, while she and the girls head off to Colorado to ski.

Their net worth is something like 12 million dollars...how much of those vacations did they pay for, and how much did we, as taxpayers pay for? The flights are covered by tax dollars...I am sure of that. We can't have our nation's most important family flying on American Airlines, can we?

Ok...what about at the destination? Do they ever take out their debit or credit cards to pay for anything? They have their own security detail....I would have to also assum they have an entire entourage...chefs, aides, etc to wait on them hand and foot....X2 since they took separate vacations, I might add.

All paid for by you and me!

If he (barack Hussein Obama) is concerned about the wealthy not paying their fair share of taxes, why don't he put his money where his mouth is and forfeit his annual salary to the deficit or some other program that would benefit the country?

Because it has never even crossed their minds...they are too busy celebrating their lotto winnings.....that is what it must be like for them.....to come out of nowhere from middle America with no real political experience, then be thrust into the limelight and be elected for being "hip" and en vogue.

Hello America. This is the reality of your once great nation. Are you ready for what you and your children will have to endure 10 or 20 years from now?

Just read online that when abc interviewed him about his "Obamacare" he was asked if his family would be enrolled and he wouldn't answer the question, the article also said that congress had already voted to keep their insurance they have now, so they won't have to give up their really good coverage for the insurance us regular people do. I hope every single one of them gets voted out of office .

Rising childhood obesity rates in the US clearly show that parents are NOT keeping their own kids healthy.

I have never heard her say anything about the food stamps that go for alcohol, tobacco, or lottery tickets. If they did that, it might make some of their entitlement voters upset, so that subject is not talked about. Are people so ignorant as to think she really cares about poor kids??? This whole health kick of hers is about cutting down on costs. If she really cared, she would donate to them instaed of vacations, clothes, vacations, and hair, none of which has improved her looks at all. Disgusting hypocrits.

B.S. He has been OFF ever since he became president. Trips, Hollywood, vacations, campaigning, golf. He said he would change this country and he has, but for the worse. That is the only time he has told the truth. Him and her both are disgusting the way they spend taxpayer money.

How many days did the democrats in Wisconsin take off AND STILL GOT PAID for not doing their job and hiding in hotels in Illinois that the tax payers also got stuck with paying the hotel bills? How much does it cost tax payers every time the democrats walk out? You forgot to mention when all the dems on the Hill walked out when "republicans" were pushing for answers concerning the White House involvement in the murder of Brian Terry? How much does it cost the tax payers every time Beyonce shakes it and lip syncs for the prez and his wife?

Just when do you think it's appropriate that the president show up? Where was he when 4 Americans were murdered in an 8 hour period in Benghazi? He was in bed, got up and caught a flight to Vegas to party with who else? Beyonce! Where was Obama when the Ben Laden kill took place? On the golf course. He was rushed back to the White House for a photo op to prove to America that he was in charge. lol

Where is Obama, the president of the United States of America, when HIS sequestration idea is getting ready to go into affect? He is jet hopping around our country trying to scare Americans and hoping that they can be convinced that it's the republicans fault. Boy, what leadership, huh? The House has sent 2 proposals to the Senate trying to avoid Obama's sequestration. Harry Reid, democrat Senate majority leader, will not consider those proposals and therefore would not allow the bills to even be heard. Yet Obama and Harry shout it to the roof tops that the republican majority House is the party of "no".

You bunch of weak morons follow your mac daddy to the slaughterhouse and praise him as you are being dragged there. That's good. God speed to all of you idiots.

This is a great comment! Voters who put this president in won't listen. They believe all the lies. I love reading comments of those who know what is going on out there. Surely by end of this 4 years we will have enough join us to begin a turn around. Too bad it couldn't have happened this past November. We could already be in better shape. I can't imagine what we will be going through by 2016. Every single day we are seeing more and more happening to our Nation "We The People" love so much. The Nation our Veterans have fought for, and our Troops and families now are enduring. God Bless All of Them. We can be thankful God is in control.

Many valid questions that I bet you either won't get any response or just beat around the bush with other questions.

Jim,you seem to have all the answers.If the President should forfeit his salary and not take vacations should the same apply to every Senator and elected Representative in Washington?If not why.It's easy to listen to a talking head and let their ideas appear as yours but try to explain and see if they are the same.
Just out of curiosity if you were President how much salary would you take and how often would you go on vacation?We know the answer would be much different than what you infer.

Yes, I think the senators and representatives SHOULD forfeit their salaries as well. Why not, after all, most of them are already multi-millioniares....look into that, it is a fact.

It is also a fact that they exempt themselves from many of the laws that affect the rest of us...Obamacare for instance.

We do not live in a democracy...we live in an oligarchy: A government that is run by a select few of ruling elite...the politicians and the big business fellows that pay them off.

I would not want to be a politician. I am not crooked enough.
The light at the end of the tunnell for me is that I KNOW there is no un-doing this mess and eventually it will be bad enough to affect EVERYONE, not just the middle class and the poor.

America is RAPIDLY becoming a second-rate country. When the economy has dried up and we have the government so far up our ass that we can't fart without having to pay taxes to support the "masses", i.e. people who are too stupid, lazy, ignorant to work...the people who cannot plan a family RESPONSIBLY, in other words, they just keep pumping out kids expecting a tax credit for each one, then I will be happy.

I will be happy because people will finally HAVE to open their eyes. Even though it will be too late. After all...nothing lasts forever. Not even America. And we are not supposed to be supporting all these unfit families in the country...aside from the greed in Washington, the other big problem is paying entitlements to all the losers in this country who can't get their shit together enough to make a decent career for themselves. They want to take advantage of systems like welfare, etc. yet still buy designer clothers, the latest tech gadgets, etc.

They are more concerned with having a fancy car payment and big rims or having an iPhone then saving for retirement.

Do yo feel that there should be a some sort of "limit"? Instead of a couple of million a month.
