How much has Obama and family spent on vacations
Posted - 2/16/2013 7:34:48 PM | show profile | flag this post
Has anyone seen a rundown of how much the Obama's have spent on vacations in the 4+years he's been holding office? I'm talking the cost to the taxpayer of these vacations.
Please don't give me a comparison of vacations by various presidents. I'm asking about THIS one, during a time when we're massively in debt and when spending money should (SHOULD) be considered by this guy before flying AF1 to Florida for a golf lesson.

Yes. Here it is from Factcheck.org, which ran down the shocking allegations in those viral emails:

how much did Bush's Iraq war cost?
$750 billion to 1 trillion.
Find any WMD yet? How's that threat to America now that Iraq is governed by pro-Iranian shiites? Mission Accomplished?
Oh sorry .. yes .. the real problem is Obama and AF1. Silly libs.

You've been well indoctrinated.
You're obsessed with race. References to Obama being black. Who cares? You're obsessed with the democrat mantra; Bush spending money on a war (which congress, both dems and repubs, voted to fund). What do those points have to do with my question?
The usual democrat / liberal / progressive deflection; call people names or change the subject if you don't like the question.

So...go back and look
at the question you posed. It's bullshit.
Grateful gave you a perfectly good link that shows you're trying to stir up shit and nothing more. You could have looked that up yourself and chose not to. Or you did, and chose to be an asshole anyway. Moving on.

The President has business to tend to. When he travels, it costs money. It is the cost of being the leader of the free world. Period. However, there is so much false information about Obama and his trips like when he traveled to India and Michele Bachman claimed it cost $200 Million per day. Completely false. Obama has taken fewer trips and vacation days than Bush. Fact. Find a real issue to complain about.

"Obama being black. Who cares?"
Well, except conservative republicans, newscred, thesecondcoming, con, cruiser, et al.

three weeks vacation per year.
About average for white collar workers.
As far as the complaints of his golfing -- he's also about average for rounds played. About 1/4 as often as Dwight D. Eisenhower -- and also about 1/4 as often as the Republican Speaker of the House.
