But wait! Oboma is a public servant. He gets paid with tax dollars. Therefore ALL his money is public money. He just proved to the whole world that if you accept public money, you have to be willing to be told how to use it. I demand the new curtains be returned!
Every person enlisted in the U.S. military also get paid with our tax dollars. Are you also ready to tell some soldier who is protecting your ass how they should spend their money ?

He probably has a bill on is desk for that already. Socialists like him believe all assets already belong to the government anyway. Its up to him to decide how much he allows us to have.

Once you receive your paycheck that money is yours. Even if you have a government job. I really hope you were kidding.

last I knew they made over 4.5 million in 08 alone, from book deals etc. so they have plenty of NON Tax $$. so rest assured it's not your Tax $$$
THANK YOU.. aside from the book deals .Mrs. Obama was the bread winner at 350,000.00 a year. In one of her interviews she said they paid off ALL their student loans 3 years ago with book money.

Some of these bloggers need to see what an education can do!

But if Obama doesn't like the way the company is running, your job may not even be yours anymore.

Um, no. Obama has nothing to do with the way my privately owned company is running. He has the responsibility to oversee any company's management that is being bailed out by taxpayer's money. Would you rather our government didn't bail out some of these companies? There are very few people on either side of the aisle that think it would have been a good thing for AIG to fail.

He gave Gordon Brown back the bust of Winston Churchill to make space for the Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels busteses (that's ebonic plural for bust). They were girly men with tweety bird chesteses (more ebonics) so it takes them both to fill the space of Churchill.

I'm surprised that not one person has noted what is being redecorated with their own money: ONLY their private living quarters (bedrooms), a sitting room, and the oval office. Most of us do that much (our own houses!). They ARE NOT redecorating the entire Whitehouse! Let me assure you, any changes to the rest of it WILL come out of your tax dollars. This is chump change ... nothing more than a publicity stunt.

Wow! So they used their own money to decorate. Must be they had to make sure they had enough tax payer $$ to pay for the 500 people they are bringing to the Summit in Europe.
And Obama jumps all over GM for wasteful spending.
