I don't need to post old stuff just to prove a point. If I were going to do that, I would be making MANY posts about the costs of the vacations Michelle and her girls have been taking on tax payers money. Get MY drift?
my point was that it was recent.you know my favorite intrest is wars.and my favorite one of these is the U.S. civil.there have been thousands of books written about it,beginning with the end of the war right up to the present day.i read somewhere that a book would tell someone about as much about the times it was written in as it does about the subject itself(I'm speaking of non-fiction/history).the civil war is a great example of this.perspectives on it have wavered back and forth at least a dozen or more times since(depending on the era the books were written-at least in part).I think it is unfair for us to compare Reagan to a Lincoln,jefferson,etc. so soon.i believe that should be left to future historians.but that is just my opinion.

I am so glad somone brought that up. everyone use to really fuss when George Bush went to his ranch in Texas. Michelle Obama has jet setted all over the world on vacations, taking along her children and her mother. Proven fact, she has spent more vacating than Bush ever did, at taxpayers expense and she's not even the president. I wish I could find that link now.

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


It's so easy to blow these Right Wing falsehoods out if the water.

Let's do it again -

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. 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.

FactCheck.org was writing about the anonymous chain emails about Obama’s travel costs and noted in July that the stories about Obama’s travel expenses are,“part of continuing pattern of false and misleading claims about the travels of the president and the first lady,” and that Obama used Air Force One less in his first two years in office than George W. Bush did.

Does the Right Wing know they are spewing false info, and do it anyway, or are facts so unimportant, they just don't care.

How many separate vacations did Laura take? How often? How large was her entourage? Compare the costs of Laura's vacations to Michelle's. How many rounds of golf did Bush play in comparison to Obama? What was the state of the economy when Bush went somewhere OTHER THAN HIS RANCH for a vacation? You mesmerized left wingers can defe Obama all you like, but you are on a sinking ship.

They have a "world view" and they just "know" how things are. The more you present them with actual truthful facts the more the stubbornly "dig in" to their completely ridiculous and false positions and blow off logic and truth.

It's the way they are.

You left wingers have no cred because you are so brainwashed by the Obama machine. You refuse to even CONSIDER that you have made a HUGE mistake.

So! Your post can't be said about you exteme left wingers, huh??? See how ridiculous you sound?.

Get ready.
All the folks who post on TOPIX- when there not enjoying all the benefits provided by FDR are gonna be attacking you for all FDR stuff.
When the benefits flow to them, and they enjoy a decent life thanks to guvment programs - that ain't socialism. When the benefits flow anywhere else - it's damn near comnism.
Like the shout goes - "keep yo guvment hands of my Social Security and Medicare.
At least it's entertaining.
For your reading pleasure in regard to the fallout of Obamacare. This will become widespread. Wait and see!

I really AM laughing. Soooooo, you AREN'T going to have the hell taxed out of YOU? Seriously? Are you for real???? Honestly, YOU need some kind of reality check. The most worrisome thing about your post is that you are okay with the government taking money by force. For whatever reason, you uninformed, low information libs think you are going to get some kind of pass. Did you have to apply for that pass? lol Perhaps you think Obama has your name on a special list and you will be immune. At least I'm intelligent and informed enough to know what is already happening and what is to come. If you weren't so eaten up with bitterness and envy, I would feel sorry for you.
To Angie and all republican losers, We independents came we saw and we kicked romneys greedy little BUTT! Now hopefully he will tax and tax and tax you for defacatting bush on us for 8 years. Open your bank accounts and get ready to PAY UP.

Obama is a failure as a president. He could have be great. He could have been mediocre.
He has failed at everything if he has tried to help the American people.
His one crown jewel, ObamaCare, is a bloated, inefficient money pit that lowers our quality of healthcare while raising costs across the board.
His path is the path to economic ruin, it is plain to see, just open your eyes and lose the partisanship. We all know that's not going to happen.
Obama has failed if he is trying to help this country, if the conservatives are right, and he purposely is hurting America to further his personal social and economic beliefs, then I suppose he's been pretty successful.
