Obummer’s multi-million dollar vacation

I don’t begrudge our president and his family a (nother) vacation,  and I wasn’t going to comment on this story, but the more I read, the more I wondered. The Prez could have stayed at the Marine base two miles away, saving a million or so on security costs.  I can see that three beach-front homes for Obummer and his friends would be more fun , but perhaps the Commander-in-Chief should share quarters with the troops he’s ordered into harm’s way?

    I’m with you on the “presidents are entitled to vacations” notion. What I wonder, however, is this. How does the current president stack up to his predecessors for $$$$$$ spent? Is he in the ballpark? Or is he living more like Donald Trump when he travels? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I’d love to see a count of dinosaur media articles bemoaning GWB as the absentee president for time spent on his Crawford ranch, as compared with the media blackout interrupted only by chriping crickets as The One goes on yet another vacation.

    A classic narcissist would not see this expenditure as an extravagance – he deserves that, and more. For a reminder, recall the FLotUS boondoggle to Spain last Summer.

    I need to side with you on this one. I don’t believe that there has been a President in the history of our country who has been on vacation as many times as this guy and with as many people around him. We are in a recession aren’t we? It is our tax dollars that pay for this, isn’t it? There is something seriously wrong with this picture and it certanly isn’t the opnions of the people.
