Go Sherrod! Break up the big banks and put the criminal banksters in prison! Even Holder admitted that the DOJ will not prosecute economic crimes by banks that are 'too big to fail.'

We the People like to give our tax dollars to private banks making record profits and bonuses!

We ARE the Tea Party NATION.

Liberal pet projects are not what the people want in life......they want less government. Only nanny loving liberals have to have herr Obama hold their hands through life.

Obama is on vacation, he can return to the WhiteHouse Press Room upon his return to Washington and address questions if he chooses to.
Nancy & Reid are in place to manage the American Bank take over until he returns.
Please remember,
SEQUESTER Time:
no hard questions !

As spring break begins for schoolchildren across the country, thousands of students will travel to Washington, DC. The trips, funded by bake sales and other events throughout the year, will allow the students to take in Washington's historic landmarks.
One premier destination is off-limits this year, however. A few weeks ago, the Obama Administration announced it was suspending public, self-guided tours of the White House as a result of the automatic sequester cuts that the administration proposed in 2011. While America's students stand outside the White House fence, the First Daughters, Sasha and Malia, are enjoying spring break with friends at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.

Breitbart News' Matt Boyle broke the news Monday morning that numerous sources have reported seeing the First Daughters in the Bahamas this weekend. Presumably, the Obamas are paying the costs of the resort out of their own pockets. The robust Secret Service detail that must accompany the First Daughters, however, is funded by taxpayers.

The principal reason the White House canceled public tours was to save money on Secret Service staff. The White House reported that suspending the tours would save $74,000 a week. Other reports have put the savings at just $18,000 a week.

Whichever the true amount, the Secret Service detail necessary to protect the First Daughters on their spring break could likely have been used to keep the White House open to the rest of America's school children. Judicial Watch reported that Malia Obama's Spring Break in Mexico last year cost taxpayers over $115,000. That amount would cover 2-6 weeks of White House tours.

You seem to make a lot of sense, to yourself. You should run for office, see how many votes your get. I doubt you'd be elected dogcatcher.

Our great Commander-in-Chief ordered the killing of Osama Bin Laden. He and his beautiful family earn their vacations.

He was ELECTED by We the People to run the government, not you.

You hate him when he's working and you hate him when he's vacationing. You are consumed with hate. How sad and pathetic you are. Your keyboard is like an endless stinky fart. You must be lonely.

That was sarcasm. We the People hate corporate welfare, especially for the fraudulent bansters who profited with OUR taxes after they orchestrated the crashing our economy.

He is a lying scumbag. While he and his family are bleeding us dry, children that save, scraped and worked to visit the white house don't get to go. GFYS. He could shoot Biden on the White House steps and you would say..........SOOOOOOO.

Chicago has voted to become the next Detroit, property will be cheap if you can hold on to your cash and wait until the EU fails to save Europe and Puten must save the Cypriot bank accounts.

Wow, we agree on something. I can't believe we gave OUR tax dollars to these corporations:

$500million to Solyndra - which failed.
$400million to Abound Solar - which failed.
$150million to Ecotality - which failed.
$527miliiion to Evergreen Solar - which failed.

Who would approve such blatant corporate welfare?

If Obama was half the "socialist" the Righties whine he is, he would've taken over all the major banks, investment houses, and securities dealers the moment he took office. He would then have directed the prosecution of their CEOs and boards, the elmination of all bonuses, massive pay cuts, and reorganizations of said companies. NO bailouts.

But as we all know, he's almost as much the tool of Wall St. as Bush...
