<quoted text>Expensive massages, top shelf vodka and five-star hotels: First Lady accused of spending $10m in public money on her vacations
By Tamara Abraham
The Obamas' summer break in Martha's Vineyard has already been branded a PR disaster after the couple arrived four hours apart on separate government jets.
But according to new reports, this is the least of their extravagances.
White House sources today claimed that the First Lady has spent $10million of U.S. taxpayers' money on vacations alone in the past year.
Le Spambo hates him some of those colored ladies drinkin' up the white peoples' good vodka and takin' vacations, instead of picking up dirty dishes and takin''em to the kitchen for washin' up like they's S'POSED to.

Texas graduates 85% of it's students from HS, higher than the national average, higher than Ohio, California, and most other blue welfare states. Texas has led in SAT gaines over most states.
Texas leads nation in SAT participation increase
AUSTIN - Texas led the nation with largest increase in the number of public school students who took the SAT, the College Board reported today. Texas public schools had 123,154 graduating seniors who took the college admissions test, which is a 10,678 student increase over the participation rate for the Class of 2009.
Even with the large increase in public school student participation, students in most of Texas’ major ethnic groups earned higher scores this year than in 2009.

Obviously, you didn't do very well in school or you would realize that 85% is NOT half. The left is......dumb.
Here is the data from 2007-2008 school year according to the US department of education.

You claim Texas had a higher graduation rate than those "blue" states.

The US average was 74.9%

Texas graduated 73.1% not even average

Some blue states:

Minnesota 86.4% above average
Mass 81.5% Above average
Hawaii 76% Above average

Let's look at a few other red states

Mississippi 63.9% not so good
Louisiana 63.5%
Nevada 51.3%

Maybe this is unfair. I know, Bernie Sanders is a socialist so his state must surely be bad.

Vermont 89.3%

Somehow this gives me a different impression about education in blue versus red states. What gives? Did the graduation rates rise after bush left or what?

"Texas governor and GOP presidential hopeful Rick Perry supports the FAIR tax (or at least did last year when he wrote his manifesto Fed Up). This levy would repeal nearly all federal taxes (including the income tax and the payroll tax) and replace them with a single-rate national sales tax on the purchase of all goods and services. FAIR tax backers set this rate at 23 percent but the Tax Policy Center’s Bill Gale and others have concluded that the rate would have to exceed 30 percent if the scheme is to raise as much money as current law....

On average, such a levy would raise the share of taxes paid for all but the highest-income households, who would pay far less than they do today. "

As the article states, the numbers apply to any tax cuts along those lines. Now please try to explain why Republicans who fought tooth and nail to extend tax cuts for the wealthy want to let payroll tax cuts expire for the middle class.

Is Obama at his HOME, like George Bush was, or is Obama VACATIONING.
Obama rarely goes back to his home in Illinois.
It's vacation, vacation, vacation and Michelle with her flitting around costs taxpayers plenty of money.
YOU suffer while Obama vacations.
Bush went to Camp David, too, and to jail quite often to bailout his drunk underaged twin daughters.

You're the racist, as my post sarcastically pointed out. You're either too dishonest to admit it, or more likely, too stupid to get the sarcasm.

At least the REST of your post makes it crystal-clear who the racist is, here.

YOU.

Bush was their leader, though, like when he was at the Olympics in China, embarrassing this nation by being falling down drunk.

Romneys Mass state employees were making deals with foreign govts to prosper their incomes. The same employees were hiring family members, all of them at the state house knew. The same nation has a corp that is involved in the casino building with the Indians. During this time they were ignoring crime victims that needed help due to corruption going on in that nation (with some of our nations employees involved also but not limited to) and the crimes.

This is all of your futures by the way, thrown to the wind if a corp is involved, same criminals may work at bldg your casino, the company has filed in this state as of last year. They still do not care here and one of these men came to Mass after the crimes to the victims home, they still do nothing to even protect the victims. NOTHING AT ALL. The casino will be built near the victims home, in a somewhat too close vicinity and they still do not care. The Gov knows, your senators know..they do not care.. deals were made and your lives simply will not matter.

Your jealousy is pathetic. Also, Romney's kids are no leech on society--they have their own money. Get a life and emulate Romney if you want money so much.

The self-descirbed "unemployed" Willard The Rat Romney, is demolishing his tiny 3000 sq foot beach "cottage" and is replacing it with an 11,000 square foot mansion, citing his need for "more space" for his seven kids and 55 grandchildren- just can't keep those unemployed leeches on society from breeding, apparently.
Romney's idea of a jobs bill.

Jealous? Hardly.

I have plenty of money- and Willard The Rat's children have 100 million in a "trust" before they ever even started making their "own money."

Why would anyone want to emulate Mr. Potter?
