Another vacation for the Obamas on the taxpayer's dime! He's vacationing while the rest of the country is trying to make ends meet to pay their bills! If you care about your country, please vote the liberals out in November and fire Obama in 2012!!!!!!!!!! God bless America!

I was just thinking the same thing. He's on vacation again? Thank God I have a job but I can't afford even a staycation. I know so many people having trouble buying something to eat and he's buying books.

He is either campaigning or vacationing. But on the bright side, when he is vacationing he can't do as much damage to the country! To bad the vacation is not permanent!

He said the family will not eat the entire vacation to save money.Bet a lot of people will believe that. They are still waiting for the change.

I bet our soldiers in Iraq (they're not all gone) and Afghanistan would love a vacation! I don't understand how he can live his life as if he's on cloud 9 laughing and living it up on taxpayer's dime while his military that he is supposed to be in charge of are still fighting a never-ending war. Where the hell is Biden anyway? Anyone seen him? The public needs to demand the completion of these wars - and we have to do it together!

And, if possible, get him out before then!! He's stuck on the same "in-your-face" attitude as Clinton was!!

What they should eat is the deficit he created with his ridiculous and useless programs!

"Never" is not the issue here. "Constantly" is the issue.

Huh? So by change you think every single thing has to change? lol. Yeah ok. Bush spent half his term on vacation, so therefore since Obama was for change he is not allowed to go on vacation, ever.

Constantly? Obama has gone on vacation less than Bush ever did. Is that "contant" to you? Obama is frequently *not* on vacation.

Methinks you don't know what the word "constant" means.

Don't bother, Debater. Your dealing with a bunch of whiny, punk, little racists. They love to moan about the state of the Country, but are too lazy and ignorant to do anything about it.

Stop smoking on that crack pipe it's affecting your brain and please snap out of the world of fairyland! The country was operating in a deficit well before Obama took office and you can thank GW Bush for that. It's amazing how Political Amnesia works!
