Aug 26, 2013 Full story: Press & Sun-Bulletin 35

The commander in chief is apparently a big tipper. While in Upstate New York last week to speak about college affordability, President Obama stopped at Magnolia's, a deli and cafe in Rochester that came highly recommended by New York Sen. Charles Schumer.

So what? I'm sure the waitress didn't care where it came from. It's better to give than receive. Criticize one for being generous

Easy for you to say, not paying taxes. He's also very generous with the rest of the world, at our expense.

Listen pigpen. All you do is whine and complain about politics and this country. You can always leave. There are more important things going on than Obama leaving a tip. Are you jealous because you can't afford to give one? People like you bitch about Obama no matter what he does. If he had left a 5 dollar tip you would have complained how cheap he was. Sorry if Obamas money affected your house money. You can always go down to the cupboard, maybe they will help you. Until then, maybe mabe mars or Jupiter will have you.

<quoted text>You should get a grip Rhonda, all of his expenses are paid for by the taxpayers when he is out doing "government" work. None of that money came out of his bank account. Just admit that he is a empty suit that plays LIV like you like he plays the rest of the world. You should take a couple of classes in how the government works before you run off at the mouth so you don't look like a fool. Just trying to be helpful. BTW: Do you really think that he pays for any of his golf outings and vacations? If you do you would be 100% wrong or blinded by his and his party constant spin.
Obliously you're completly ignorant as to what is paid for by the Taxpayer and what the Presidents pays for.

"Obama not only bought lunch for his secret service men (the ones who checked the place for WMD's before hand)... he also double tipped his waiter, like a champ. "

The President pay for all his food, lodging and entertainment. This fact has been repoted and documented hundres of times. And even if he didn't, just like any other American with an expense account. Items purchased on that account for personal use, would have to be reported as income on his taxes.....

Obama tips like he handles the economy - with abandon. The tip is of no consequence, but trashing the nation's economy is a huge deal.

Sidebar: He hasn't needed to pay for anything since he was elected. Everything goes on the expense account. But it makes a great story.

<quoted text>Question, where does the money for his expense account come from? Here is a clue, the taxpayers, got it now? You say that he pays for all of his food, lodging and entertainment, if so why did his latest vacation cost the taxpayers over 100 million dollars? Do you really think that he pays for all of the bodyguards when he plays golf, goes to anyone of his "playgrounds" with his family? You throw out his tax returns, well you should check them out before you use them for an example, he take every deduction he can while all of the time he preaches to us that we should pay more and more taxes everytime he opens his mouth. Do you get your "facts" from the DNC website or do you just make them up as you go?(you can check what I posted on the CBO-Govt websites, where can we check out your "facts"?)
This is your problem, you're intermingling Taxpayer costs associated with any President and the President's personal expenses. The cost of protecting the President, is a Taxpayer expense as it is with ALL Presidents. Buying lunch on Park Ave his expense. Which is the subject of this thread......
There isn't some double secret Presidential expense account that he can use at a whim. He's the President not a Congressman.
The Secret Service, Air Force One, The White House, ect... Come with the the Office of the President. They weren't just invented for Obama. The $100 million for his vacation had nothing to do where he slept, what he ate or the cost of his green fees.
Go to the "CBO" site and find where it specifically shows a line item for his personal expenses in regards to the President.

Nice try, keep reaching........
Oh and BTW, the CBO helps determine what is projected to be spent.The GAO keeps track of how much is spent and for what.

You should really take that class you recommended to me.....or I can school you here.

If you think the taxpayers paid for Obama's tip, you are barely smart enough to breathe.

Not only do Blacks not tip, if a White waitress is waiting on some Black groups, she's in danger of being attacked, beaten, raped and killed by a Black mob just for being White. Obama has increased Black hatred for Whites and has set Black Americans back fifty years in any sense of progress. A race war started by Blacks like Obama and his former preacher has already started. Leftists think they can still control it by giving them inflated money, but Leftists have destroyed the cities and given Blacks nothing but inflated unemployment numbers.
Don't forget to wipe.

A bowl of 'Arti, choke on this!' soup goes for $2.95, so Obama left a $1.53 tip?

Whoa ....

<quoted text>You never stop being a cheerleader for your boy Obozo do you Larry? Do you know what a expense account is and the fact the taxpayers are the ones that put the money into it for Obozo? Now tell me again who pays for what Zippy. You and your buddy MCP are both so blinded by the idiot in chief that he could get us in another war and you two would think it is great. OH wait, he has just got us in another one a few hours ago. You and your God Obama are both racist loons and progressive losers. BTW: You missed a great Jazz Fest again this year, stay safe.
Keep seeking, truth seeker. You have a long way to go. Every U.S. president receives a salary from the federal government. And yes, the federal government is funded by our taxes. However once the president receives his salary, it is his to use as he chooses. He is free to overtip or not tip at all, just as you are, assuming you have an income.

What is really interesting is that you choose to single out President Obama from all other presidents who spend their salaries as they wish. One can only wonder why. I think I can guess.

<quoted text>Lets not be snide Larry by saying things like "assuming you have one", not everyone is on the dole like you and 80% of your party. Also don't imply that I am a racist because I speak out about the most anti-American president in history in a way you don't like. I said many things about Bush also which you were fast to agree with, does that make you a racist Larry? I know the truth about your "King" upsets you and your party now that they know what an inept failure he turned out to be. Most of the honest dems I know wished they never voted for him and are ashamed they did. People are seeing thru his spin more everyday and are fed up/angry. That being said, if your "King" is so generous why does he take every deduction on his taxes and donates the lease amount of money of any president in history? Do you also believe that his vacations like his last one to Africa(over 101 million dollars)are paid for by him? Or maybe you believe all of the over the top parties he has in the W.H. are also paid by him, right? I guess it must be a progressive/liberal/democratic thing, you know always spewing help the little people then do just the reverse. In closing Larry, don't be taking cheap shots at people, you have better than that over the years. Thank you for your time Larry, as I know you have very little to spare trying to spin about how great your "King" is. As always have a nice day, stay safe.
King Obama! Sounds pretty good, but I'll settle for a president who, despite obstructionism from your side, has had numerous major accomplishments, and will probably have more before he leaves.

As I already indicated, your screen name belies your distorted views.
Finally, Topix is not for the over-sensitive.

<quoted text>One little thing that you always over look Larry is he had control of both houses and still couldn't get any thing done. I think your obstructionism doesn't apply. Please name one thing that he has accomplished that has been good for the country. He does 90% of the damage by fiat. Please don't say Obamacare, even his own party says it is a mess and will only cause massive loss of jobs and cost trillions of dollars without helping the middle class or the poor.
Sorry, I won't play along. Obama has had numerous accomplishments that have helped the American people. If I need to specify them for you, you are probably inert.

<quoted text>Are you dodging the question Larry because you know he hasn't done anything or are you the one that is inert? Sorry Larry, but I haven't changed over the years and still will take you or anyone else to task when they are blowing smoke and avoid questions. You are starting sound like the typical sheepel Obama loving loon. Again I ask you what accomplishments,you say??? Don't feel bad Larry if you can't come up with one, nobody can.
You are dodging the truth, "seeker". Those who are aware of Obama's many accomplishments don't need me to repeat them. Those who are unaware are either intransigent or comatose. Don't give up hope.

Here's a deal. I'll give you five or more major accomplishments by Obama, if you'll promise to quit Topix. If I fail to do so, I will quit Topix. Are you a wagering sort?

WHAT ACCOMPLISHMENTS?????

A national health care act that does nothing but increase the national debt to an astronomical amount?

Atempting to steal our 2nd amendment right right out from under us?

Allow the NSA to spy on EVERYBODY both foriegn & domestic?

Trying to get the US into yet another war with strikes on Syria?

You are so caught up in the fact that he is half black, that you can't see that his policies are draging us all down!!!

And you call everyone else racist!!!

If you're talking 5 or more major accomplishments in Obama's failed presidency, then it's a slam-dunk for the truth seeker.

Contrary to what Obama supporters believe, running guns to Mexican drug cartels, blaming an obscure film maker for Benghazi, and receiving as a gift the Nobel Peace Prize based on symbolism and rhetoric of what may or may not happen at some point in the future, ARE NOT MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENTS.

Call his bluff, seeker, and take the 'more' option.

If that's the case, then you should leave now because you just dug yourself into a hole from which there is no escape. Even the most dyed-in-the-wool fktard liberal couldn't list five major accomplishments of a president who defiantly refused transparency and is constantly struggling with embarrassing scandals.

Notice how quickly intelligent people can return fire on stupid rhetoric ... and yet somehow this joke of a politician got elected and then re-elected.

I think the elections have got to be rigged!
There just can't be THAT MANY STUPID PEOPLE!!
