$1.6 BILLION taxpayer dollars spent in 2011 hauling around the asses of this family. Congratulations Dipocrats and professional leaches. YOU pay for the next 4 years of this waste. I will be funding the rest as we move to a bankrupt welfare state.

And your point is? How are Obamas costs any different than any other heads of state around the world? The President is required to travel around the globe with full security detail. Yes, it costs a lot of money. More than you make at Walmart boy.
Who are you trying to enlighten and on here regarding your facts?
The 100 or so RepubliCONs that read this on a weekly basis?
We could talk about Bush and how he spent more to time on vacation than most presidents including Obama. Estimates vary but Bush’s frequent trips to Crawford, Texas cost taxpayers upwards of $20 million+ alone.
That is all, get back to work in Sporting Goods.

What an ass you are. Lets start with millions wasted on junkets for his two brats like the oldest ones spring break trip to Mexico with 30 of her friends and 60 secret service agents earlier this year. What the HELL does that have to do with the country's business you dirt bag?

And your point is that you are a "progressive" with not one clue about economics. Fiscal discipline begins at the top, and the failed one has none. Just like the trolls who reelected him in the most insane vote result in the history of the USA.

The end of the line for America and the dirt bag doesn't get it. What has happened to common sense and the values most of us grew up with? Disgusting.

I usually stay away from threads where its more like a blog then a debate.
The real point here is the waste of money the government leaders spend on themselves.
Not just in vacation travel plans which they all do but also in other items.
Such as health care. Why should they have free health care ? Let them buy the same plan we buy using the money out of their salaries and not as an added benefit.
Private jets ? Why can't they fly commercial like the rest of us ?
Let them buy their own cars out of their salaries.
Let them pay for their staff workers out of their own pockets.
We could sure save a lot of money if they all paid their own way using their salaries and not just dipping again and again into taxpayers money.

The president needs to lead by example. The idiot in the job reminds me of the captain of the Costa Concordia. He will be the first one off the sinking ship when the US finally collapses under the weight of its mounting debt. Why should any of the rest of the idiots in DC exercise any fiscal prudence when the head man has no bounds?

Obama and every single elected official in Washington (and Springfield) should be sent home and replaced with people who actually can think. They may be hard to find however, given the number of goofs who reelected the worst leader the US has EVER had.

Yeah, I think we all know why some of you say the things you do.
No need to state it on Topix but it’s very evident in your choice of words and commentary.
Might I suggest you all put in more effort into overcoming your discriminatory issues and also into becoming better human beings.

Pardon me, but where do you get discrimination out of this? Is that all you can think is the issue here? If you think this is about color and not about the loss of billions of dollars of taxpayer money extravagantgant unnecessary trips, especially with desperate financial shape of the US and its citizens, you are in serious need to put more effort into understanding that WE CANNOT AFFORD to haul this jerk and his family around on unnecessary and extravagent trips.

If your brain is so polluted or feeble that you cannot understand the difference between discrimination and lack of respect, you have serious comprehension issues amd should be examined by qualified medical personnel.
