That's what I was thinking. He could stay all year, only be about 73 million.

What is truly amazing is that you and the rest of the left wing nutjobs on this forum can't come up with a single educated post.
The irony is you're getting screwed like the rest of us, and you voted to get screwed, you will never get it, is above your comprehension level...

Pretty tough to find any articles on Presidential vacations that aren't from biased websites.
But I did find this from Yahoo- it was void of any political leaning slant. Someone much smarter than I in math can account for inflation to see who went on vacation spending sprees.

Quote:
Presidential vacations are typically a working retreat and often draw a lot of attention from the press. The location, length and cost of traveling American presidents commonly garner even more headlines during an election year. This week, President Barack Obama spent the afternoon with his family on the beach in Hawaii released green sea turtles into the ocean with Sea Life Park staffers, according to ABC News. Before returning to Washington next week the president is expected to request Congress to increase the debt ceiling by $16 trillion, according to ABC News.

Obama


President Obama opted not to stay at his Winter White House in Hawaii during this visit. He and his family are renting a beachfront home on Kailua. President Obama's staff and the White House Press Corps are staying nearby at the Westin Moana Surfrider hotel, according to the Huffington Post. The president's vacation cost the taxpayers $4 million, approximately $2.5 million more than the first family's trip to Hawaii last year, according to the Huffington Post.

Prior to the Christmas trip to Hawaii, President Obama had spent 61 days during his first 31 months in office. The cost of the president's 11-day vacation to Martha's Vineyard required rental homes for secret service agents, armored SUVs were flown to the area to transport the Obama's, a motorcade of approximately 20 cars and security coverage by the U.S. Coast Guard, according to CBS News.

George W. Bush

President Bush spent 180 days on his Crawford Ranch and at Camp David during his first 31 months in office, according to CBS News. The cost of flying Air Force One to the Texas ranch cost approximately $56,800 per trip, according to Media Matters. President Bush spent each Christmas at the White House so his staff and secret service could spend the holiday with their family, according to Conservative Byte.

Bill Clinton

President Clinton spent 28 days on vacation during his first 31 months in office according to CBS News. Clinton typically vacationed at Martha's Vineyard and the Hamptons, but also took two summer trips to Jackson Hole, Wyo., according to History News Network. President Clinton spent 233 abroad during 55 trips, according to Truth Quake. A Clinton excursion in 2000 is pegged as the most expense presidential trip ever, with a price tag of $50 million, according to the Free Republic.

Ronald Reagan

President Reagan spent 112 days on vacation during his first 31 months in office according to CBS News. He spent most of his vacation time on his California ranch near Santa Barbara, according to NBC Bay Area News. The White House communications team and national security staff accompanied President Reagan during trips home to his ranch. President Reagan issued the order to fire striking air force controllers during a vacation at his ranch in 1981, according to NBC Bay Area News. Taxpayers covered the cost of approximately $8 million for presidential travel during the Reagan's first 6 years in office, according to the LA Times.

Well just cry me a river.

You so self righteously assume that your posts are educated, but I assure you they are pure stupidity. Please do carry on, though. Its much more amusing watching your kind fail,... again and again.

The President is a fool. Over the next four years I believe he will destroy the dem party for a generation.

THe only thing destroyed is the Tea Party fanatics and the waaaay too far right neo-cons. Same as the losers.

He should, since he makes more in a week than I do in a year. I was referring to Social Security taxes, but I understand your need to divert from the topic...

Quote:

They should pay more, since the top 5% make 96% of the income.

Quote:
Really? Weird math.

I see, so if 1% earn 99% of the wealth, they should pay 1% of the taxes while the 99% who earn little or nothing should pay 99%...

Now THAT'S strange math Danny...

Seems more and more of the majority isn't buying it.

IIRC, you have much more experience with pigs, and thus, more experience with pig farts.

What can The Worm Lord be blamed for? ??
Do you guys really believe all the chit commonly heaped upon your example of human perfection?
I'm curious how you feel bout OB's belief that he shouldn't even have the constraints of a debt ceiling, especially after he claimed raising it's was unamerican and irresponsible when W was talkin bout it.
