LOL, my fault? What did I do other than state the truth, is it not a blackman living in public housing? At the countries expense?
What part of that isnt true.
Obama is black, or at least 1/2
The White House is owned by the people, therefore public housing.
And the expenses of living there are born by the tax payers of this country..
so where am I wrong?
Getting paid a salary that comes from taxes is not "at the taxpayer's expense". The thing that is your fault is that you continue to defend your right to make racist comments. That's wrong, and you should repent. If you're the same person, I noticed a different name on this post.

What difference does it make that the President wants to make changes in his home for now? I'm starting to believe that people have nothing better to do except find something to look for negativity among Obama, there has to be something else yu guys can do with that energy

That is very vain that they are using actual money to decorate their house. With the state of the economy the way it is, there are people out there with little or no money for food and medicine.....and the Obamas think it's perfectly OK to decorate their house using money. Isn't that against the law anyway? The destruction of currency is an offense is it not?

Calm Down, they have their own money, why would that upset you??? Both the President and his wife were sucessful people before they came to the white house, so what is the BIG deal???

He was trying, although a vain attempt, to be funny. He was deducing that they were using currency as wallpaper or something to that effect.

That could actualy become a reality if the economy doesn't turn soon.

Charmin will come out with a new design with the excess bills from the U.S. mint.

<quoted text>Bob, calm yourself down. You even make your friends look worse. Read again what came out of your brain. I don't know how someone as impulsive, illogical and misinformed could even get a job let alone keep it. Why are you so angry? Do you feel better when you get this off your chest? You know when you make assumptions you really make an **** out of yourself. Well done!!

This post makes absolutely no sense. But I registered radell. Don't use it. If you don't have the courage to use a unique name to spout your nonsense, keep quiet.

Out of the woodwork they come. For all who are giving Obama a hard time on this thread, remember it was Bush that committed many of the dollars being spent to try to re-start the economy, and rightly so. Stop being partisan and realise that this depression has all the makings of the 1930s. The saving grace is that the US and other world leaders realise this and are not "doing a Hoover".

Are all you conservatives racists and homophobic? Did you ever hear of the UNITED States of America. Thank God you are only a small minority in our country, even though you make a lot of noise. Get with the 21st century. Slaves have been liberated and gays have the same basic human rights as you. Sexual preferance is a personal choice the last I checked. Face it buddy, we are a nation of diversity. Where was it said that all are created equal? And by the way in case you haven't been paying attention, I've been called worse names by you right wingers than a**.
