Obama Needs A Break

October 4, 2010 by  

Obama Needs A Break

At a fundraiser last week at the home of former ABC and CBS News reporter and Obama staffer Linda Douglass, President Barack Obama reportedly told those in attendance he could use a break.

Douglass’ husband is John Phillips, a wealthy lawyer, and the couple hosted Obama and the $30,400 a person fundraiser to raise money for Democrat candidates. Phillips also worked on Obama’s campaign and, when he introduced Obama, he said, “I can remember walking down those snowy streets of Des Moines in the primary… We sleep much better knowing that you are our president at this difficult time,” according to washingtonexaminer.com.

Obama then thanked Phillips and Douglass for their work and acknowledged the two own a nice home in Italy. Obama then reportedly said, “I’d appreciate a little break and some Tuscan sun. Some pasta. I could use it.”

Let me get this straight: Obama has been President about 20 months and has spent all or part of 38 days (according to ABC News) on “vacation.” When he’s not on vacation he’s carted around in fancy cars or an opulent airliner, never opening his own doors, carrying his own bags or preparing his own meals. It seems he plays golf almost every day. But more than a month of vacation with less than two years on the job is not enough?

Let me just say, President Obama, if the work’s too tough for you can quit any time. Remember, you asked for the job. No one forced it on you and, judging by the latest polls, most people would just as soon see you quit.

But take heart: If you want to stick it out, you’re almost halfway through. Your term ends on January 20, 2013. Don’t let the door slap your butt on the way out.

    As far as I am concerned he can take a permanent BREAK from playing President.
    He is so very incapable of doing this job it is unreal. He is so like a lot of our young people today, all they want to do is play. Obama is very good at playing and play acting.

    • http://??????? Stephen Browning

      Thank you Jana, I was going to write the exact thing about the perminent break. I am all for it.

      • Robert L.Fennell

        I agree, he can take a permanent bread and we will celebrate.
        Maybe we should propose that to him.

      • Buzz Breslin

        DITTO!

      • Christin

        Yes, and the sooner the better.

        And we need a BREAK from him!

        We are tired of dodging the flaming darts.

    • http://www.mesatyree.com Richard

      I like the comment “playing president” This petulent child is not acting like president. He has turned the greatest office in our nation into a joke. Please Mr. Obama take a permanent vacation, you are desrtoying the country I love.

      • Mike from Denver

        Why have so many Americans been so duped by this man? I understand that one of our courts will be taking up the issue again as to whether or not he has the citizenship to rightfully hold this office. He has an agenda and that has nothing to do with upholding his responsibilities as our President. He is like many of Americans he is narcissistic…its all about him. Listen to his next speech and count how many times he says I and me and how he never gives credit to anyone on his staff which outnumber any other President. Then there is the First Lady, the “princess” has a staff of fifty plus when past First Ladies have had at most one or two. She can’t even vacation is USA but has to be carted off to Spain…outrageous

        • Wayne

          Mike, a lot of the folks who voted for him are still asleep. I guess they still cannot see the fiasco coming like we conservatives can. If he gets his cronies (Democrats) back in Congress he will be pushing through that terrible cap and trade bill that will surely wake up some of those sleeping. The cap and trade has already passed the house. Of course a lot of them are just kids still wet behind the ears and really can’t think for themselves yet. Let’s vote all of NObama’s cronies out of Congress next month. I am praying and crossing my fingers that we get some good conversatives back in Congress.

          • Bus

            Don’t these wealthy morons who paid $30,400 for a seat at the table realize that Hussain’s goal is to take these people down to the level of the commoners? It’s their taxes that he wants to jack up so they might have to sell their Tuscanny home to support the socialist regieme.

          • Conservatives United

            And before he was at this, he was speaking to his base in WI at UW Madison, before one of only 2 groups that still buy his BS hook line and sinker. Of course most of these students will not vote this time. He can’t even get away from confrontation in is Democratic staged events. Even some of these are starting to see thru him, or at least question him. Now if only some of the morons in the Lame Stream Media would catch on to this and start reproting something resemebling news, instead of the editoralized garbage they spit out as news.

        • marvin

          Mike from Denver you ask why if you have your hand out and live on handouts it is easy to understand why, obama was born on welfare and has never worked so to him and them like him it is a way of life free free free thank obama all mighty it all free at last,no more work no more worry no more car payments no more house paymenty and that just the way it is

        • Jeane Evensen

          We need to boot ALL THE LIBERALS out of Office and out ot the United States, starting with that polosi bitch!!!!!

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Jeane,
            I agree with you but it doesn’t start with P-lousy. It starts with your locals right up to the president! as far as the top ones it begins with Bawney, then reid then P-lousy, then Nobummer!!!

        • Dee

          obummer can take a permanent break. He does enough to ruin this country already. Can’t believe people were so gullible to vote for him. He has to take his vacations in very expensive places where most of the people can’t afford to go.
          November is coming soon and hope the people have enough sense to vote his cronies out of office.

      • deport all muslims

        To Richard,…. Did you say “please mr. president”,…. wash your mouth out with soap! Don’t ever capitalize anything that has to do with that half-breed kenyan, and damn sure don’t say please to that bastard half-breed!

    • jm

      Obama is sick in the head and so are the people around him…period.

    • refuse2lose

      Can we all throw a PITY PARTY for the POTUS? He has worked so hard at bankrupting America and causing nationwide racial hatred that he is worn out and needs ANOTHER vacation.

      • Christin

        Isn’t that a fact.

        But let’s say they pay their own way this time.

    • Jeane Evensen

      obama needs to GET THE HELL OUT OF THE UNITED STATES AND NEVER COME BACK!!!!!!

      • Chris

        Maybe if YOU were to do it first we would know how it’s done

      • ruth

        thats for sure! he’s not christian even thou he tries to say he is and he was not even born here, and he was not even invetted, why in the hell is he still our prez? does anyone here remmember when in the primaries he WOULD NOT PLEGLE TO THE AMERICAN FLAG, he looked down to the ground, does anyone remmember that? why in the hell would anyone in this country ever vote for this ass to be our president!

        • a progressive nightmare

          Good question….ask the brain-dead progressives.

    • Eileena

      I agree that Oboma can take a permanent break.He has done enough harm to our country,he and all those socialist politicians, he has up there in D.C. can leave asap.

      • Buzz Breslin

        It took 12 years to get over Jimmy Carter ( not counting the Iranian mullahs) It will take 2 generations to regain the country’s footing after this jackass is done.

      • kate gray

        This prez has had more vacations than the average AMERICAN. The average American can not afford to vacation, but he uses our aircraft to go on his.

    • LK Parker

      A break????????? He’s got to be kidding!!!!!!!!!!!! I agree…a permanent break would be the best possible answer !

    • http://zzzz Preston

      10/5/10, To Obam: resign now. Take a few hacks w/you. Preston Weiters.

  • dan az

    Oh yea if he would only get a little sun down in tuscon I hope he means arizona come on down!!! You can get all the tan that you need to keep up that presidential look.This is a slap in every person face in the nation.What do you care its only money our money.Theres more important things to think of,like how long should one stay in the sun and how many umbrellas in my drinks do I collect,And look at all these jobs that I created just by being here if it wasnt for me they would all be on the unemployment line collecting that free money I gave them and that fine food from usda.I wonder if he can speak spanish?

    • Tony

      To dan az, You’re in The United States of America we speak ENGLISH here. And we learn how to spell the town we live in.It’s TUCSON,ARIZONA. And that illegal,unamerican,piece of muslim pig crap, in The White House was meaning he wanted a free ride to ITALY.

      • Jana

        Tony,
        Yes, we do speak English. If ANYONE wants to come to this country they need to learn it.

        Plus, with this statement: “Obama then thanked Phillips and Douglass for their work and acknowledged the two own a nice home in Italy. Obama then reportedly said, “I’d appreciate a little break and some Tuscan sun. Some pasta. I could use it.”

        That was the height of rudeness suggesting that they still haven’t done enough and should have him and his family and all of the secret service and the expensive plane trip etc. in to their home in Italy. Are these people close friends of his? Or did he have them checked out?
        Obama had the audacity to strongly suggest that they do this?
        Somehow I bet it happens. If it were me though I would say no. He is just using them and anyone else for whatever he can get out of them, but they are probably so enamored at him and bow down to him so much that they will do anything he asks, just as if they were hypnotized by him..

        What did he do, have someone check up on these people? He is not beyond using anyone at anytime to further his agenda.
        Plus you realize that the secret service will have to go over about a week ahead of time to secure the area. Another plane trip, hotel bills and food bills. Obama thinks only of himself. He is a very selfish man. He certainly doesn’t think about his job or what’s best for this country!

        • MaryEllen

          He is big on redistribution of wealth–ours to him. Went to school on a foreign student scholarship and still has his hand in our pockets!! He needs to go back to his country of birth__Kenya. Any body except me notice his grandmother said she was there when he was born, he went to see her and a few days she died? Coincidence?

          • Michael J.

            Mary Ellen,
            No, you are not the only one to notice the untimely death of his Kenyan grandmother. If our suspicions are correct it goes to show the man’s audacity and ruthlesness. With this in mind, mere mortal christian conservatives fate would be decided in a nano second.

          • marylee

            My friend and I discussed this when the grandmother passed away – hardly got out of the country and she died!! MMM – and where are all the people he was in college with him, no one wants to come forward – why??? He needs a one ticket to the moon!

          • eddie47d

            Many people visit their loved ones just days or even hours before death. I think some of you are living on another planet. Are you from Zoltron?

          • Michael J.

            Eddie47dd,
            How many grandmothers of a president elect claim that their grandson (president elect) was actually born in a foreign country, not America?

          • eddie47d

            Mary Ellen was referring to some kind of morbid conspiracy death. I don’t seee that at all.

          • Jana

            I don’t think Obama physically hurt his grandmother, but he sure did cut her deeply with his words.

          • Michael J.

            A president who prescribes death panels for the infirmed elderly of an entire nation is capable of anything. Rationalizing that she only had a short time anyway.

          • eddie47d

            Michael J ; There are no death panels so your mind is either polluted or corrupted. Either way you loose.

        • http://n/a Rae

          He is horrible to fish for a Italian Villa
          vacation this way.
          He us virtually saying to his host you must have me
          at your property for nothing because I’m the president.
          Sure I’d love to invite myself to an Italian Villa too.

          Hum fifty days of vacation so far? Lets all have a pity party.
          I have no paid vacation days or sick days available on my current job. At least I have a job and follow the written job description for my position.

          Rae

          I’d rather see him vacation in Tuscon, Arizona that way we’d have some security establish along the boarder.

  • Kinetic1

    Ok folks, you had to know this was coming. President Obama has spent all or part of 38 days on vacation during his first 20 months, 26 of those days during his first year. During President (G.W.) Bush’s first 12 months he spent all or part of 69 days on vacation. Reagan, 42. Clinton, 21. Carter, 19.

    The man made a joke among friends about taking advantage of a friends home in Italy and you all make him sound like a fiend. Yep, with things being a tough as they are, President Obama has cut back on his vacation time, but that’s not enough for you. Let’s not forget that, despite the rapidly eroding economy Bush was vacationing in Crawford for the entire month of August while intel about the upcoming 9/11 attack was piling up. He was also in Crawford when Hurricane Katrina hit. He knew that was coming and yet he stayed away on vacation. Shoot, he even waited a few days after Katrina before heading back to Washington!

    • Marc

      The subject now is your champion Mr.Kinetic1.You are desperately trying to change the subject.Tell us how Mr.Clinton has handled the oil spill,will you?

      • Jana

        I don’t care how many vacations they take, but even while on vacation he is still supposed to be the ACTING PRESIDENT.
        When Reagan or Bush or even Clinton was on vacation, they were still available during a crisis or a problem. Not Obama. When this man is on vacation he is too busy playing games to be concerned with the state of affairs of this country. He doesn’t even bother to come out and make a statement to the people during a crisis. If he does it is generally too little way too late.

        • Jana

          In fact I can see it now.
          He is out playing golf. His men have heard a report that is of grave concern to the country. They are standing out at the sidelines talking among themselves.It is 10 o’clock in the morning, 1st man, “Should we interrupt him and let him know?” 2nd man, “No, his advisors aren’t here to tell him how to think or what to say, and he would just get aggitated at us and then get depressed. We’d better wait till his advisors get here, and they are on their way. They will probably get here late tonight.”
          Meanwhile Obama is blissfully playing his so important game of golf.

        • Kinetic1

          Ah yes, Bush and his famous golf course comments to the press. ….”I call upon all nations to do everything they can to stop these terrorist killers. Thank you. Now watch this drive.”
          Inspiring!

    • bruce d.

      Where did you get those figures from Kinetic1. If there is one thing I have learned about liberals they make up facts to suit their argument.

        google it youself Bruce or do we have to do you’re homework for you.

        • Craig

          No liberal piece of crap like you has ever done homework in their pathetic lives. Nobody in their right mind would want an uneducated know nothing like you to do their homework.

          • Kinetic1

            Wow Craig, go take a nap and don’t come back until you can play nice. Before you cast dispersions on all Liberals, I suggest you take a look at your fellow Conservatives on this site. There are many who consistently make outrageous claims that are easily disproved. Now that’s not to say that all Conservatives do this, but there are plenty. I suppose it should be expected when their source material is Glen Beck, Michele Malkin, Ann Coulter, etc. As for me, you’ll find, much to the chagrin of many people on this site, that I do a great deal of research. You may not like my findings, heck you may even find opposing facts, but you can’t in good faith claim that I don’t do any research. Shoot, I even run spell check! I may let an error slip by now and then, but I do my best.

          • a progressive nightmare

            Kinetic….Name a few? Document those conservative claims for us. As far as Beck, you would have to be brain-dead or just plain stupid/dishonest to not appreciate Beck’s research. He even states, “Don’t take my word for it, do you own research.”

            Who else in the media makes this claim or is more due diligent in their research? I think you are in denial Buddy.

        • http://Google ProudChicagoan

          eddie47 – if you have not notice, when a conservative quotes a site we give the link. What’s a matter, e? Too lazy to do that simple courtesy?

      • Kinetic1

        As Eddie47d said, it doesn’t take much effort to find the facts. It is common knowledge that W holds the record for presidential vacations. 490 days at the Crawford ranch, 487 at Camp David. Sure, he took some calls and did some work while on vacation, but every president does, but that’s over 1/3 of his days in office. So where do I get these numbers? Beau Elliot, The Daily Iowan, Jim VandeHei and Peter Baker, Washington Post, Mark Knoller, CBS News, just to name a few. I don’t need to make up facts.

          Look up this fact when a prez goes anywhere is he supposed to carry the football (brief case with the nukes code) or is it carried for him while he is lounging in the sun and pounding down a few?

    • http://www.personaliberty.com frank

      Hey Kinetic you have this all wrong. We need a vacation from those two in the white house a permanent one!.Oh by the way spending a week at home is a little cheaper on the tax payers than Spain , Marthas Vineyard and remember flying halfway around the world for a 5minute speech twice (nobel prize olympics for Chicago etc.).As president this man is just got his own agenda. Its not for anything good for this country because quite frankly he hates the U.S.A..

      • Kinetic1

        So you would all feel better if he bought a vacation home? Since he and Michele pay for their vacations out of their own pockets, I don’t see the difference. True, we have to pay for the security detail, but we foot that bill for most politicians.

        • Bluebonnet

          So, tell me Kinetic, since you know so much about what Obama pays for, who is paying for the cost of all of his campaigning for Democrats? He is flying all over the U.S. in the people’s plane, apparently at taxpayer expense, campaigning for one political party. Can you tell me if the taxpayer is being reimbursed for these campaign costs? Is the DNC paying for this? If not, why not? What campaign laws allow the President to charge this off to the taxpayer? And, do you know how much money has been spent by the President for this. The people are not responsible for the President’s campaign costs. So, who’s paying for this? If this is coming out of the people’s pocket, this is abuse, if not theft. He is not campaigning for Republicans, Libertarians, or any other political party except Democrats and himself. How many miles have been logged for Air Force One, and for what purpose? Who keeps up with this and who has oversight? Does anyone here know?

          • Kinetic1

            I can’t argue with you here, though this is not strictly an Obama issue. Presidents have been running off on campaign trips for as long as I can remember. They travel to promote their bills, they travel to promote their agendas and they travel to support other politicians. Since it’s in their interest to maintain or get control of the House and Senate, they travel all over during the mid terms. Since they want support in the states they fly out in support of their party’s candidates for Governor, and to the best of my knowledge we are the ones footing the bill.

            I don’t like it either. I don’t like the amount of time our politicians spend running for office and raising campaign money when they should be working on the peoples business, but that is how our system is run. Worst of all, now that we have this new SC decision on campaign financing, corporations both known and unknown are dumping hundreds of millions into campaigns and ads and we don’t get to know who is behind what! Our electoral system is broken and we the people (and I do not include corporations when I say people) are the ones who will lose.

        • a progressive nightmare

          actually we would “Feel Better” if he were to resign, go home and play in his sandbox.

    • JKO

      And you might have pointed out that most of Bush’s vacations were at his ranch or Camp David and in most of that time he had his staff with him and they were working. Many Americans work away from their offices these days it really is not a big deal if the Prez. does the same. I really don’t care how many days he takes off as long as he gets the AMERICAN CONSTITUTIONAL job done. And his wife – not an elected official by any standard – does not take 40 of her friends to Spain while milliions of Americans are out of work.

      Oh yeah, and we are less than two years in. If Obama keeps this up he will outdo Bush and all the others – and at least most of those you mentioned stayed home and pumped the money into the American economy!!!

      • Kinetic1

        JKO, please do the math. Obama spent 26 days on vacation during his first year. Bush spent 69 days on vacation during his first year. 69x.4=27.6. Obama spent less that 40% of the time Bush spent. Now, Bush spent an average of 62 days a year at his Crawford ranch alone. If we ignore all other vacations taken during his presidency, and assume that Obama will bring his total up to 26 again this year, Bush is still running a 2 year total of 17% of his time compared to Obama’s 8%. Now I am playing with averages here, but it’s to Bush’s advantage. So it looks like Obama is really going to have to ramp up his vacation time if he ever expects to meet your expectations.

          So, tell us Kinetic, since you are an expert on cost here, how much money is allowed for the First Lady’s staff. What is the precedent set by other First Ladies compared to Michelle Obama? Do First Ladies have a budget of what the taxpayers have to pay for her upkeep, if there is such a budget, and what does the budget include? Since you espouse to be in the know here on such matters, how about giving us a run down on who funds the First Lady’s personal care team and who authorizes such funding. The cost for Michelle appears to already be in the millions of dollars. What portion of this does she personally pay for? And, who will be paying for the cost of her upcoming announced Democrat campaigning? She will, no doubt, be using the people’s equipment for travel. Will the DNC be reimbursing the taxpayers on this? Inquiring minds want to know, or should insist upon knowing.

        • a progressive nightmare

          I would think given the current “State of our Nation” that OBlama has been on vacation since being sworn into office.

    • Conservatives United

      I fully agree that he needs more vacation time. A PERMANENT VACATION TO A COUNTRY OF HIS CHOOSING!!!!!!

        Yeah,Any country but here!! With this many vacations & now he needs a break.When the hell is he going to work? I busted my a$$ for 20yrs.& 2.5 million miles & i never got a vacation.I’m still doing some type of volunteering to give me a place to live,& i only have had 1, count them,1,vacation in my entire life.I don’t see another one in this life time.
        So i hope the next time he eats,drinks,clothes to wear,gas for that big gas eatin linmo & let’s not foreget all those vacations he might remember the working class.You know the ones that have had their jobs out soursed to B.F.E.& other countries.Did you know that those pigmes in India make a wapping $.17 per hr.just so they can tell
        you”i’m sorry”!!! I’m so sick of hearing that,that my own volcab.has gotten smaller.One i don’t like even when i was a long haul trucker.
        So if he needs another vacation so soon after his last one then he needs to leave office & take Biden with him so We the people can regain our country back & bring all the things we used to be proud of
        back to the U.S.A.!!! God Bless America!!!

        • eddie47d

          Most outsourcing took place about 1995 to 2008 give or take. Give your buddy George a call and see if he’ll let you stay at his ranch for a week. Many folks don’t take vacations and if they do they’ll stay home and do needed chores. You didn’t say what you do with you’re vacation time?

    • Wanda Murline

      He may have been in Crawford, but it didn’t cost the American tax payer over $20,000 a night for him to be there…he went to his own home. Obama is so over his head in this job it is ridiculous…I just read an article that stated he is depressed and on medication, and that he is still smoking well over two packs of cigarettes a day…and the media and everyone is keeping this little secret from the voters. Wonder how they would feel seeing the President sucking on a cig when he is telling everyone else that they have to stop. If he is lying about smoking, I can tell you he is lying about everything else… like his birth certificate, pass ports and college.

      • Jeane Evensen

        It’s pretty hard to believe that there are so MANY STUPID people as to have voted this total unamerican JERK into office!!! He needs to leave the Country and tall all the STUPID liberals with him.

      95% of statistics are made up on the spot. This applies to your conjuring up of “facts” about previous presidents’ vacation time. No one can believe such nonsense and you damage your case. Ease up on the hatred of the “right”. We are the “right” for a reason!!

    • conservativeinaction

      Kinetic1, thank you for your statistics, but the one thing that you have neglected to mention is that while President Bush spent a lot of time in Crawford, he set up parts of his home with all necessary material, including high security stuff so he could fulfill his presidential duties/work from Crawford. He was not on vacation, he was working from a remote location; one away from the Washington BS, one where he could concentrate and accomplish great things in the best interest of our country not his own narcissist self like obama and his cronies.

      • Kinetic1

          Kinetic says, “tell that to the victims of 9/11″ You are referring to Bill Clinton, right? And by the way Kinetic go do a 69 with Eddie, you sneaky teabagger!

          • eddie47d

            He was referring to George but you knew that. Why don’t you and Craig go climb up each others leg you sicko.

          • Kinetic1

            How rude was that? No, WIA, not Clinton. Bush was vacationing at Crawford on August 6th when the infamous PDB was produced for him. Since he did not read his PDB, preferring to have someone else read, condense and tell him about them, he was late to the show. Again on or about the 24th information on Zacarias Moussaoui was prepared by the CIA. George Tenet testified that he did not deliver this information to President Bush because he was on vacation. In fact, they didn’t speak at all during the month of August.

            “We [9/11 Commission] have found no indication of any further discussion before September 11 among the President and his top advisors of the possibility of a threat of an al Qaeda attack in the United States.” [p.262]

            Fine work our President was doing from Crawford.

            Now, with regards to your suggestion; if this is a sample of the level of debate you practice, then it is clear that I am dealing with a Jr. high student at best. Say what you want, I will not bother with you in the future.

          You said,”Tell that to the victims of 9/11″.
          While your at it, tell the victims of 9/11 your mealy mouth justification for erecting a Muslim tribute to the 19 terrorist who took the lives of said victims just 2 blocks away.

          • Kinetic1

            That is your interpretation of the community center. Judging from the strip joints, porn shops, fast food restaurants, etc. this is far from “hallowed ground.” Whether or not I think refurbishing a Burlington Coat Factory to make room for a Islamic community center a few blocks from ground zero is a good idea is neither here nor there. In this country they have the right to do so. It may be a bad idea, but they have the right to make bad decisions, just like you.

          • Michael J.

            Kenetic1,
            How ironic, the Muslims used the same words to describe the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. Coincidence? I think not.

          • http://Google ProudChicagoan

            kinetic1 – you libs are trying so hard to be politically correct it is sickening. The “community center” at ground zero is a VICTORY MOSQUE!!! You have no clue what the muslim mind set is – you are using your western mindset to interpret an eastern and muslim mindset. Do you see any churches in muslim countries? NO. muslims are not going to let any Christians build any churches either. If the muslims ever do take over this country, it is going to be too late for you to get smart. Unfortunately, liberals like you will take down the people who all along knew it was a VICTORY MOSQUE. Start thinking for yourself.

            eddie47 – stick to the discussions and stop calling people names. It really is extremely childish.

    • a progressive nightmare

      Kinetic1……What does Bush have to do with this conversation? He is no longer the President, thank GOD! He was just another “progressive-lite”. Ofcourse I would take him back 10 fold over this idiot we have in office now. This guy don’t have a clue and needs to go back to ACORN or SEIU and do a little “Community Organizing” and ofcourse at the tax payers expense. Isn’t that what he is best at doing?

Plus there is the additional cost of the secret service having to go over to Italy a week ahead of time just to secure the area. That is expensive. Then to fly the Pres. and family and security over is another expense. This man does not take cheap vacations. This country is having grave finanacial problems and most people cannot even afford a vacation. We are having staycations if we have any at all, and he is oblivious to this country’s problems.

    • Karolyn

      I have had an extremely difficult 7 years or so. From owning my own small antiques shop that went bankrupt to ending up almost homeless if not for the kindness of strangers, the government, and selling everything I owned with any value and then on Social Security Retirement (which is waaaaay not enough because I was self-employed for 10 years and worked for nonprofits for 15 years.). For the past 2, I have been alone and subsisting on that $700 per month SS, plus whatever I can sell online, and I’m not crying. Sure, it’s been difficult; but because I am a self-sufficient person, a hustler, if you will, I live a fairly happy peaceful life, and that is OK. Sometimes I’ve gotten depressed over not being able to buy paper towels or toilet paper in a given week; but I’ve neve been a whiner. I am very fortunate to have landed a volunteer position with AmeriCorp, a government organization, with a non-profit organization that will further my education in social services. I also get a Pell Grant for my college education. I am so grateful that the government has programs like these. I do not want to spend my last years on the street. And I don’t blame the government for my predicament. Nobody ever said life would be fair.

      What does all this mean? It measn that I am a person who has been unemployed for a long time, and I know there are worse things than that. At least I’m healthy and have a few loving friends AND have a government that cares about its citizens. Yes, the government is screwed up in a lot of ways, but you also can’t blame that on the sitting President. Did you ever stop and think that he came into this position wanting to help the country? That he’s been thwarted by the way things are in Washington? I don’t care who gets elected; I don’t think anybody can change the way it is other than curb things back some. If many of the Repubs/TeaPartiers running are gonna get rid of a lot of programs, I think that will definitely screw a lot of people; and I’m not just talking about the welfare thieves.

Unfortunately, in this day and age, more education is a requirement to get a good job, whether that be in the trades or any other industry. I’m going to a community college that has more nurse students than anything else because there is such a demand for nurses. the area I live in has been hit hard by sending their jobs overseas. The southern mill towns have been having a hard time for a while now; and being educated is getting people back on their feet. I’m grateful to have a government that cares about assisting people. Beats many others. Would you rather it was a like a 3rd World country that does nothing for its citizens?

            How many vacations have you been on in the last year? Or even the last few years?

          • Karolyn

            I’m happy I got to go to my niice’s wedding in Florida for 3 days this year. I’m on vacation every day, because I love life!

          • rockjock10

            Sounds like you should have made better choices in your life Karolyn. We all make decisions in our lives. My wife and I both worked our way through college without government help. It can be done if you try, and it is not that hard. Actually, unless you are trying to start a specific career that requires college, you should try a trade. We need more good skilled tradesmen (neuter term). Stop defending Barak. He is not performing his duties very well. When people in the real world don’t perform, they get fired. If he can’t handle the job then get out.

            Another thing, rock, I have always wanted to be in social services, and that does require further education. Alcohol and drug counselors are in great demand right now, and that trend is to continue for the next few years according to the facts I’ve read.

            Pell grants were here for years and years.Yimanna didn’t discover them. Maybe Bush wasn’t the greatest but this fiasco started way before Monica was crawling around on the WH floor putting everything in her mouth she could find.
            I am 76 yrs old and been through alot. This yomamma in the WH will never make it in another election. He was put in there by Soros to bring our country down the tubes. The only way out for us is to go back to the Constitution and live by what it says.
            I for one am tired of paying for the WH clan’s vacations. When I saw the misses in her Mexican ‘get-up’ I almost lost it. She looked like the pinata. Her mister is a crazed free loader who came here from Kenya and had no money for 1 week. WOW he must have ‘panhandled’ on Chicago Sts. to get all he had in a week.
            The sooner we buy him a oneway ticket back to Kenya, the better for our country. As for him, I have this in a ‘nut shell’:

Put in taco and enjoy.”

            Who do you think pays for your pell grants, public education, welfare, food stamps. ALL Government programs? The Tax Payers, that’s who…I do hope you get your education and get back in the work force paying your fair share of taxes for your generous education because right now with 50% not working or paying taxes and on food stamps, I can’t afford to keep losing more and more of my check taken in taxes to pay for the other 50% using my money to better themselves…you all hurry and get back to work and “PAY IT FORWARD” for the rest of us so when we burn out and fall on hard times or lose our homes because our paychecks keep dwindling and we can no longer feed our own families, we can rely on all you newly educated Americans to help us. Your taxes can put more money in the kitty pool for us to live off of and take a break for a while to rest and get back on our feet!

          • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Jill

            God wants you to live your life for others, esteeming others higher than yourself. Our lives are to point to his son Jesus Christ. (which is very hard to do lately) Live a life of service. He must become greater and you must become less. It doesn’t mean you are a doormat for abuse or underhanded policy changes in the middle of the night. But it does mean that knowing right from wrong even though wrong may be tempting, you must choose right.

You make bad decisions in life and then expect others to pick up the tab, even our future generations. What a legacy to leave to our future generations, but, YOU DON’T CARE as long as YOU get what YOU want out of LIFE. The hexx with everyone else, correct?

        finally, someone who has experienced what GOING TO WAR and BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN A FEDERAL DEFICIT can cause — someone who has lived it and is yet, not bitter.
        Life is not fair, and the comments made by these hate-mongers is not fair either. what a horrible way to spend an afternoon, reading this totally disheartening crap.
        i’ve already created enemies by just speaking my mind.
        THE RIGHT IS UNCHANGING and the only thing we can count on in life is: CHANGE. it is inevitable, and these cry-babies can’t adjust to the fact that it’s a LONG ROAD AHEAD and this man who was elected, he won fair and square, and he did come into office trying to HELP, not to harm. The damage the administrations did in the 7 to 10 years prior to today through which you suffered is just now showing it’s face in our ruined economy.
        sorry, kiddies, it’s NOT obama’s fault. and I’m not throwing stones at George W Bush, either — he was led to poor decision making by someone who is filthy rich.
        the greatest wealth is health and Cheney doens’t have the latter. But he sure is wealthy. Enough testosterone in government!
        keep up the good spirits and don’t let the nay-sayers getyou down. One day of living as you’ve had to do at times and they’d probably put a bullet in their head…. how’s that for a free roll of paper towel or toilet paper. it’s bad enough that those of us working have to use pantries as well at times because there’s never enough money to go around…. and as the OPPRESSORS try to keep us down, we can spend nothing, doing nothing to generate a healthy economy again.

WHEN THERE ARE FAMILIES IN THIS NATION THAT HAVE BEEN HURT MORE BY YOUR SO-CALLED POLICES THAN THEY HAVE BEEN HELPED, AND THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE IN THIS NATION THAT ARE NOW AFRAID FOR THERE FUTURES BECAUSE OF YOU. IT SEEMS THAT YOU ARE ONA VACATION MORE THAN YOU ARE AT THE WHITE HOUSE. I HAVE A WONDERFUL IDEA FOR YOU. NEXT TIME YOU WANT TO TAKE SOME TIME OFF ON AMERICA, GO TO SAUDI ARABIA, AND NEVER COME BACK.

      So True. I have been saying for a long time now, that we need to give him a one way ticket to a country of his choice. And when he leaves, be sure to that the rest of the squaters in the White House with him. Then we will give most of Congress a one way ticket to join him or to a country of their choice. In all cases that country is not the USA.

  • Dennis

    Yes, he needs a break, a permant one. This is one of the bigest mistakes American has ever made. During the campaign he was so full of promises, he was going to change the face of America. Well he lived up to that promise, America is well on its way to becoming a socialist nation, spread the wealth around to all. The rich are wrong, wealth is the ruin of this nation, wealth is gained through hard work, dedication to ones job, pride in ones life, and goals set by your on decisions. Wealth is not gained by “guvment” handouts, refusal to work, like of pride in ones ability to suceed, nor like of dedication to to have a better life for your family. This has become the way of life in America, depend on others for your needs and most of your wants. This is the way of our “guvment” today.

    • Conservatives United

      As a business owner, over the last 20+ years, business and industry, has become dirty words to liberals marxist socialist. By their definition, businesses are to be destroyed as they are evil. The question that these socialists never answer, is once they have eraticated all the evil businesses, who will be left to pay the taxes, so that they can RE-DISTRIBUTE all the wealth, since their will be no jobs, and no one paying taxes. Where will the money come from so that these eletists, can live their lifestyle. That they will have accomplished, because all real wealth will be in their hands, and we will be their SLAVES. Since they will not need that many slaves, they will exterinate the bulk of the population, to meet their NWO AGENDA.

    • zackery

      Dennis says, among other things:

      “Wealth is not gained by “guvment” handouts, refusal to work, like of pride in ones ability to suceed, nor like of dedication to to have a better life for your family. This has become the way of life in America, depend on others for your needs and most of your wants. This is the way of our “guvment” today.”

      Hussein Obama has discovered that wealth IS gained by “guvment” handouts. Just look at how much wealth he has accumulated while being POTUS. He, and his Belle Michelle, is now set for life. What more could he ask for other than turning the USA into another Socialist/Communist State such as Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, etc.? “He’s lovin’ it”, to coin a phrase or am I plagerizing McD.’s motto?

    If and when the conservatives (most likely Republicans) ever get power again they would be wise to do what the liberals do…….
    go full force ahead on the conservative agenda, don’t listen to
    or cave in one bit to the other side. The other side will all of
    a sudden become more reasonable and try to negotiate to get their
    way and nice people that conservatives are will feel that they
    should not be so one sided with their agenda but that is dead
    wrong to think that. We need to push ahead with getting our
    country back to our Christian roots, back to following the
    Constitution and not give in one inch to the other side because
    they are the enemy, they are domestic terrorists, they want to
    destroy our country. Why would we even give in an inch if we can
    get the power back. We are foolish if we cater to them and they know
    that.

    • Nancy

      I agree with you, Judith. If the Republicans can gain control of the Senate as WELL as the house, the first thing they need to do is REFUSE to fund the Obama health care bill. Then, dismantle the NEA, privatize any and all businesses that they can, and let Obama take a vacation from Nov. 3rd until the next election. Then, put SARAH PALIN in for President and Newt for vice president, or vice-versa.

      • Wanda Murline

        Don’t agree with Palin and Gingrich, but do agree that we must replace RINOS and Demorats with Constitutional Conservatives who begin to stop the worst laws in history. The first thing they need to do is require Barry to produce his birth certificate, and passports from the 80′s. If he is not a natural born citizen, then he must be impeached and put on trial for Treason. If we can prove he is inelligible, all the laws he signed will become null and void because he was not elligible to sign them in the first place…a simple way to stop this madness. This man has spent almost a million dollars to keep us from seeing these documents…why? if he has nothing to hide? It is time for Obama to produce what all other candidates for president had to produce, and the sooner, the better.

        • Conservatives United

          Wanda you are correct. Besides the Liberal DemoCraps. we need to begin the process of purging the RINOS, and their symthathiser. There are many in the house and senate, such as McLame, Snowe, Collins, and many more. There are also Establishment ones directing policy, such as Karl Rowe, Gingrich and others who want to keep the status quo. As for Palin, I had unanswered questions about her as McLame’s VP, and they have been become very clear, when she threw her support for McLame’s senate reelection. We will have to put up with some of these RINOS for a while, and keep a close eye on them, and anyone new that is elected, especially ones like Brown in MA. He is not a real conservative.

        • Jana

          Wanda M,
          You say you don’t agree with Palin or Gingrich. Why? What is it that you don’t agree with them about?
          Even though I would not vote for Gingrich because he is not consistant doesn’t mean that I don’t agree with some of his ideas. I do agree with Palin’s ideologies, so please tell us what it is you don’t agree with?

          • Conservatives United

            It is not that I do not agree with them. Gingrich is part of the old establishment that we need to be careful of. He sounds nice, but listen carefully to him, and you find that he wants change, but wants it according to the establishment ways, not though what it is now apparrent that much of the nation wants. Same with Karl Rove. These people do not want to release their control and power. They had their chance and failed. Now get out of the way and let some new people and ideas take hold. As far as Palin, I had questions about her when she was the VP Candidate, and her association with McCain and others like him RINOS, makes me very leary of her.

          • Jana

            Conservatives United,
            Are you and Wanda M the same person?

    • Conservatives United

      I completely agree!!! Over the last 40 plus years, this country have been slowly pushed to the left, so much that if you look where the center was back in the 1960′s, it is now what is considered to extreme right. JFK, I believe by todays standards, would be a conservative, after all he cut taxes in 1961-62 recession. Because the county has been pushed so far left and in the last 2 years at breakneck speed by the AXIS OF TOTAL DESTRUCTION, of THE ILLEGAL IN THE WHITE HOUSE, QUEEN PIGLOSI, AND HORSETHIEF HARRY, we must push back with out compromising with the Radicals of Evil, to get this nation back to the balance that our founding fathers gave us.

Add to this the strong armed and uncompromising tactics of the unions, what business would want to stay here. Too show the stupidity of the Unions, one GM (Government Motors), production plant, in Indiana, just voted themseleves out of their jobs. Whey because they were goinng to have to take a pay cut in bad economic times. 15.00 from 28.00 25.00 from 37.00 was so bad to keep a job and the possiblitiy that in goods times it would start backup. NO THEY 0 DOLLARS AND NO JOB.

            As a concerned CEO how much of a pay cut did you take to save your company during this downturn? How much of that $13 an hour would you have taken and how does it compare to your salary?

          Eddie, take your head our of what ever dark hole you have it in, and do some REAL RESEARCH on your SAVIOR. You will find out without looking very far that his connections and beliefs are of the communist, marxist, socialist thinking. He told Joe The Plumber in the campaign, that his goal was to re-distribute the wealth. Thats right out of Karl Marx, the communist manefesto, and in allignment Saul Alingskis Rules For Radicals. He grew up with around people who were acknoleged by their own addmision, as communists. This is just the tip of the story.

    Raegan’s ranch and Camp David were set up as “little white houses” where the country’s business went on. Neither man was touring the world dissing his own country. Plus — it was a lot cheaper to fly Air Force One to those locations rather than the destinations chosen by the Obamas. I do not remember any other president taking his wife on “date night” using Air Force One, an entourage of cars and secret service personnel, tying up traffic in New York City for hours. One of our biggest problems with “entitlement” is that the Obamas think they are royalty and should be treated as such.

      That is correct. I will not use his name in reference to the Office of President, because it would dishonor the Office. I call him what he is: THE ILLEGAL IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

          It must only be union jobs that differentiate the female pay, as all the government jobs I’ve seen have no specific classification for male or female in the pay scale. As for the queer issue, DADT is the SAFEST, if not the most PC correct, way to deal with perverted behavior in the military. GLBT’s are already a protected group under hate crime laws, same as blacks, mudslims (I hear they’re exempted from obammicare, how nice), latinos, jews and basically any group or ethnicity that is NOT christian-straight-white male. So, I guess you are right on when you say we need equality. Thanks for the clarification.

          It is not that Conservatives are against sharing. We are against the government mandating that those of us that are productive citizens, are forced to share our sweat and hard work with a segment of society that leach off of the productive as a result of the government stealing from us to reward the leaches. It is stated: Life Liberty and THE PURSIUT OF HAPPINESS, not that the government will suppy your happiness. Conservatives also realize that a LIMITED GOVERMENT is needed, for an orderly society. This does does not mean a govenment that controls every aspect of our lives. Maybe some of you liberals like this idea, since many of you have no desire do do anything for yourseleves. Conservatives on the other hand want the freedom to decide what is best for our lives, not a government burecrat or politician.

    • JeffH

      TPDN, I see that you too have fallen for the Clinton surplus myth.
      Where was the surplus?
      The claim was made by Clinton himself that his administration had a surplus of $69 billion in FY1998, $123 billion in FY1999 and $230 billion in FY2000 . In that same link, Clinton claimed that the national debt had been reduced by $360 billion in the last three years, presumably FY1998, FY1999, and FY2000 however no matter how you add it, $360 billion is not the sum of the alleged surpluses of the three years in question ($69B + $123B + $230B = $422B, not $360B).

      I am not defending the increase of the federal debt under President Bush, but it is disingenuous at the very least to say of promoting Clinton’s record as having generated a surplus. It never happened. There was never a surplus and the cold hard facts support that statement. In fact, far from a $360 billion reduction in the national debt in FY1998-FY2000, there was an increase of $281 billion and so there is a gap in those numbers is 600 Billion Dollars!
      You can verify these figures by accessing the U.S. Treasury website where the national debt is updated daily and a history of the debt since January 1993 can be obtained.

      Not once during the Clinton Administration did the national debt go down, nor did Clinton leave President Bush with a budget surplus that he spent at a frat party kegger. Yes, the budget was almost balanced in FY2000 (ending in September 2000 with a deficit of “only” $17.9 billion), but it never reached zero–let alone a positive number. Clinton’s last budget proposal for FY2001, which ended in September 2001, generated a $133.29 billion deficit. The growing deficits started in the year of the last Clinton budget, not in the first year of the Bush administration.

      President Bush assumed the office of presidency January 2001 and his first budget took effect October 1, 2001 for the year ending September 30, 2002 (FY2002). Therefore the $133.29 billion deficit in the year ending September 2001 was Clinton’s. To be fair to Clinton, Bush supported a tax refund where taxpayers received checks in 2001 the cost was $38 billion, So even if we assume that $38 billion of the FY2001 deficit was due to Bush’s tax refunds and not part of Clinton’s last budget, that still means that Clinton’s last budget produced a deficit of 133.29 – 38 = $95.29 billion.

      TPDN, “The reality is president Obama represents the rights biggest fear, equality.”

      That is a crock and you know it! That statement in itself is nothing more than a typical right/left mindsetted comment. Obama has and will continue to promote a division in this country with his ultimate goal of a “universal global” authority. He’s simply a pupeet for the NWO global elite pushing an agenda which he is in complete agreement with.

      There will be no middle class, only rulers and the servants. All laws will be uniform under a legal system of world courts practicing the same unified code of laws, backed up by a One World Government police force and a One World unified military to enforce laws in all former countries where no national boundaries shall exist. The system will be on the basis of a welfare state; those who are obedient and subservient to the One World Government will be rewarded with the means to live; those who are rebellious will simple be starved to death or be declared outlaws, thus a target for anyone who wishes to kill them. Privately owned firearms or weapons of any kind will be prohibited.”

      The NWO global conspirators manifest their agenda through the skillful manipulation of human emotions, especially fear.

      The United Nations, along with all the agencies working under the UN umbrella, such as the World Health Organization (WHO), are full time players in this scheme. Similarly, NATO is a military tool of the NWO.

      The leaders of all major industrial countries like the United States, England, Germany, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, etc. (E.g. members of the “G7/G8″ ) are active and fully cooperative participants in this conspiracy.

      The acquisition and consolidation of ever greater wealth, natural resources, total political power, and control over others are the motivating forces which drives the decisions of those behind the “NWO” conspiracy.

    I’m a 45 yr. old white single mother of a 17 yr. old boy (husband deceased 9 yrs.) and I haven’t had a vacation in 7 yrs. I’ve lost 3 jobs in the last 5 yrs….two to corporate downsizing and the last one because the black man I worked for didn’t feel I gave him enough respect because I had a different opinion of his hero obama than he did. I’m working harder at finding a job (unemployed since Feb), taking care of a child and a home than I see him working. If I had a job that allowed other people’s money to pay my expenses maybe I could fly around the world like other jet-setters on high class vacations anytime the mood hit. I don’t think he should be allowed any more time off than any other working adult, say two weeks the first five years and then three weeks for the remaining 3 years. If he were actually working hard for the people who hired him a vacation might be in order.

I hear very little about the approach this government is taking on this issue. We common folks are allowed to take a vacation at appointed times due to employment commitments. I believe the President is a servant of this Country, or maybe I am mistaken with that comment. Vacations are deserved and pre-approved in the work a day world. Perhaps it is time for any President to ask the people he represents if we believe it is his time for vacationing,particularly when the Country is falling apart.

      Dave, I have done extensive research on your “Anointed One”, and not from Fox News. I started doing massive research on him, prior to the 08 elections, and what I found scared the hell out me, that he could be come the leader of the Free World. I amd also an accomplished person in studing history, and because of this comparisons of other evil people such as Hitler, Stalin and others immediately came to mind. Maybe it is you that needs to do some real research that is not a part ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CBS, AND CNN. Also throw in such liberal rags and the Washinton Compost, the NY and La Slime, Chicago Tribune, and more. As for Fox News you have as many Liberals on there as true Conservatives, and the rest are some form of moderates.

He wants USA to be under UN control so then the blue helmeted jackasses, can tell him if we can have electricity and those smucks will control every thing more completely by the UN, they have control of the oceans, next our firearms, and what energy efficient stoves and refrigerators for the world. Any simple minded moron that thinks this puke is a great gay, must be a muslim, stone aged, retard without a grasp of reality.

    Mike from Denver. Google the Snow report on Lauras paid staff and Michelles staff. You are outrageously wrong. Michelles staff has cost more but other first ladies have had more Laura = 24, Michelle = 18. Now they can have many more unpaid staffers also. This vacation time issue was brought up last month. So is Mr Livingston having another sour grapes moment? Everyone (yes you and me) goes through life wanting a break or a vacation. So is Bob trying to make another mountain out of a mole hill? Both Bush’s and President Reagan took more vacation time than Obama has in the same period of time so what is his point?

      I remember back in the 80s when everyone was decrying “Queen Nancy.”

    A BREAK??? This Socialist has taken more vacations and played more golf than any president. The Liberal media stays silent on this.

    I’d like to give him a break. A permanent break from office. He needs to be kicked out of office.

  • Nancy Kosling

    As a political commentary of the presidents’s complaint of needing a vacation… if he is absent official duties his harm to America is much less. Secret meetings with others on trumped vacations with men who mean to do us harm is another issue. Many of the preceding presidents have official presidential orders on the books (like parasite latent eggs in the body-politic waiting) for a time to emerge and a malevolent dictator use stupid presidential orders to their opertunity for gain. This president no longer has cabinet members in the oval office that needs the review of Congress but heads of his created parts of government and agencies he created that can make their own laws without Congress. There are already laws on the federal books that can evoke Marshal law, suspend the Consitution and Bill of Rights, order us to turn in our guns, order us to turn over our stash of cash for emergencies for our families or by his will invasion of government agents to break down our doors. Our protections with the Bill of Rights can be gone over-night with the blink of the eye. Like Germany citizens under Nationalist SS and local police, laws are in place to turn America from a free country to a dictatership. History is on the cliff of repeating itself to the distructing of all free peoples on this earth. It is that big!

    • Sapphira Sez

      Well said, Nancy.

    Please, take a break. Maybe then we can get something done. I thought he won the election almost 2 years ago and he still hasn’t stopped campaigning!

        So you just vote for the party, not the person huh? You just hate conservatism becasue it is conservatism?

        • Karolyn

          To me “conservatism” means “not moving” or “not changing”, and I can’t abide that. Most of the conservative I’ve met on this list and in person are not capable of thinking any other way. It’s either black or white. I see truth in shades of gray. Strict adherence to any political view is not good.

          • 45caliber

            Conservatives vote for the lesser of two evils as a party platform, Karolyn. We don’t like EITHER choice. But we certainly don’t like the party that likes to buy votes with our money.

        you could say the same Karolyn, but it would not be the truth. You lib scum are incapable of telling the truth.

    This is the most arrogant President! He reminds me a lot of Lyndon Johnson. He is ruthless and makes no apology for his actions that are turning this country into a third world non-power.
    He surrounds himself with people that come from and are active in our enemy’s land and are members of the communist party. He appoints them to positions of power and pays them outrageous salaries with our tax money.
    His staff and congress illegally take control of private corporations in the name of saving our nation’s economy and we should give him a break?
    Let’s all give him and his buddies a real break. Work for the next elections like you never have before and let’s give him a break legally and vote them all out.

    If it were up to me he’d be on his way home to Indonesia and the law would be changed requiring all candidates to openly show their birth certificate. I mean if you have nothing to hide………….

    • Conservatives United

      A recent generic poll came out, concerning the 2012 elections. The results, were “The Anointed One” 39%, and Someone to be yet Named 54%. I believe it was a Fox Poll, so our liberal brethren will dispute it as having no value, but most people except the totally blind and death die hard liberal will notice a very large gap.

  • 45caliber

    I need a break from my job too. But I can’t take off just because I feel like it. I have to schedule it and I certainly only get what the company will pay for! I would be fired if I just left – with pay – whenever I felt like it.

  • New York Steve

    WE are the ones who need a break from this maroon!!! Maybe he should take another vacation.

  • http://writerchick.wordpress.com Annie

    Oh boo-boo, being President is soooo hard. The poor man he must need another vacation. Not to worry, since he’ll be jacking up everybody’s taxes soon, he’ll have plenty of dough to go anywhere in the world he wants, with 100 of his closest friends all of whom will have their own secret service body guard. Well, Mr. President none of us would mind if you took early retirement – as long as you take Joe with you.

    • Sapphira Sez

      Annie, don’t forget obuma’s poor beleagered wife Michelle. Being the First Lady of a country that she’s only been proud of twice in her entire adult life is, to quote her, “Hell.” Poor thing. Being restricted to taking only 40 of her friends to Spain must have cut deep. Imagine the humiliation of tell the other two they couldn’t go.

      • http://writerchick.wordpress.com Annie

        Yup we forgot about the poor beleagured Michelle. It must be hell having to smile all the time, dress in designer clothing, tour Europe and have to lecture parents about taking their kids to McDonald’s. The poor woman, what a tough life. ;)

        • 45caliber

          I know what you mean. All of us should feel so sorry for her!

        • zackery

          “Designer clothing”? Surely you jest Annie. Every outfit(costume) is abhorrent! Did you ever see her black and red, Black Widow, (no pun intended), costume? Absolutely horrendous. All her outfits tend to show what a large derriere she carries around. Aside from the fact she is physically unattractive she appears to be a caricature of someones designs gone awry. Her “designer(s) must be from Kenya where wild colors and ill fitting clothing are the norm. But then perhaps she designs her own clothing. That would explain a lot about her choices of attire.

      • 45caliber

        Not only that, how about her parties! It must be … ah … horrible to plan at least one major party a month so she can bring “glamour” to the White House. Just scheduling those musicians and comedians must be a real pain in the … ah …

    • Karolyn

      I’d like to see you do it!

      And be sure to take Reid and Piglosi and all of their cronies with you. Just maybe the voters will give Reid retirement. Too bad it couldn’t happen to Piglosi, but not in San Fran Fruit Cake Ville.

  • http://duh Shoshana

    I only agree with three of the comments made in your (offensive word removed)article focusing on things that are not important, like comments about wanting a vacation or ‘break’ as he said. I am IMMEDIATELY getting rid of this frickin newsletter from a (offensive comment removed) on my dart board and every dart that hits it is making him squirt crap on my floor.
    Nothing is useful in these comments except the following excerpt from TPDN’s comments: (In his presidency) What fantastic things did the great G.W. do? Spent $236 billion surplus left by Clinton (Clinton at one time BALANCED THE BUDGET AND SHUT FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OFFICES DOWN), enacted the incredibly worthless NCLB (speak to any teacher) did not catch Osama bin-Laden, and did not choke to death on a pretzel. How did we get into this depression? Did it begin on 1/20/09? Unemployment was at 4.2% in 1999 and at 6% in 2003. The reality is president Obama represents the right’s biggest fear, EQUALITY.” Spot On, my man!
    And, we know that the billions of dollars spent on WAR by the Bush Regime is what put this country into an economic depression and why it stays there. Where IS the former president? He’s laying low, with his tail between his legs, for the bullshit he caused, just to save his own. Same goes for CHENEY (offenisve words removed).
    Half you Conservatives commenting here have no command of the English language, no skills in spelling or grammar, and all you have done is SPEW HATRED INTO THE COUNTRY and INTO THE WORLD…. and I’m not even a liberal!
    And, I also agree with Betty, as the TRUE IDIOTS HERE making comments are spewing HATRED AND NEGATIVITY will bring about the end of this country, no holds barred. Garbage in, garbage out. Negativity breeds negativity, hatred breeds hatred, and violence breeds violence (read the Bible for the last comment).
    I also agree with this comment by : “I think Bush is the one that should HAVE BEEN impeached, after all Obama and his liberal democratic cronies have always said it was Bush’s fault for everything that’s happened. I think its sinful to think that President Obama would lie to us when the teleprompter speaks for itself. I challenge everyone to name one thing in the last two years which was not Bush’s fault. If you want to be an insider, you have to play the game” but I sense sarcasism in the last sentence. IT WAS BUSH’S FAULT, AND I STILL HAVE A BASEBALL HAT THAT SAYS IMPEACH BUSH AND SEE MANY A CAR WITH THE SAME BUMPER STICKER THAT WAS NEVER REMOVED, and TODAY’S STRUGGLES AND ECONOMY are likely the reason. Bush singlehandedly (or should I say, President Cheney) ruined this country for years to come, and we all knew about it the first day we started an unending war, watching at the side, helpless to do anything about it. He should have been working on this country’s security instead and not had ANYHTHING TO DO WITH FOREIGN COUNTRIES OR THEIR PROBLEM DICTATORS.
    Oh, and i41 (offensive words removed) for sure.

    Oh, and Dave said it best:
    Also: “Thanks for another RIDICULOUS article. The man works 24 hours a day even when on vacation. He works tirelessly to do fix an economy destroyed by the policies of the right and to right wrongs done in the name of patriotism and heal a divided and broken country and what does he get for it? IDIOTS LIKE YOU, and MOST of your readers who HATE because someone told them to, and accuse him of being all things he’s not. I’m sure he could use a break. HE DIDN’T TAKE ONE. It was an offhand comment… and leave it to AN IDIOT LIKE YOU, (YES,YOU BILL) to try to make something of it. You’re as bad as Limbaugth. I don’t even need to read your reader’s comments on this one, because this article was just throwing meat out to the wolves, and it’s NOTHING even worth reporting on. Just a reason for tea partiers and your sheep to vent their frustrations over someone they really know NOTHING about because they never cared to research it further than Fox News.” Yes, I truly see the DUMBING DOWN OF AMERICA, esp AMERICANS ON THE RIGHT WHO ARE HATERS AND WHO, FOR THE MOST PART, CANNOT EVEN SPELL CORRECTLY. Time to go back to school and esp study the years of history and the problems caused when the Bush BOYS were in the White House. Clinton tried to fix that. NAFTA may have not been right, but electing another BUSHman who was and continues to be a derilect dummy was not right either/

    immigrants we cant get them in fast enough, those border problems
    that keep bugging him to protect Americans…I could go on…….

  • America1st

    First, I’m a staunch Conservative and as against what Obama is doing to our country as anyone can be! The president is an unbelievably narcissistic Socialist/Marxist lying con man.

    That said, I’m really tired of those who look for every little thing said that can be attacked. His comment was at a private party and has nothing to do with whether he is doing his job. I don’t know anyone who has not said they would like to be somewhere else doing something else.

    Let’s stick to the “real stuff”! There are millions of Americans who get more than 30 days vacation over a 20 month period (teachers for one) and they get the time off without any work related stuff. Our presidents do not, regardless of political party. Also, all presidents take a lot of time “off”. Don’t believe me, look it up!

    I’m not pro Obama, only tired of Conservatives lowering themselves to the level of the liberals when it comes to attacking “ANYTHING” they can find, regardless of it’s lack of intrinsic value.

    Let’s quit wasting time on the minutiae and deal with real issues.

    • Karolyn

      Thank you for that intelligent comment.

  • x-trucker

    Actually folks, Obama is only a symptom of a bigger problem, that being the corrupt environment in D.C. Does anybody remember during the campaigning between Obama and Hillary Clinton that Joe Biden (yes our current V.P.) openly insulted Obama for his lack of experience and said that being the President wasn’t a place for on-the-job-training? Biden supported Clionton and campaigned for her. Now he is V.P. because the Democratic Party put him there to hold Obama’s hand. The Republicans let John McCann run for President because they knew there was no chance they would win based on 8 years of a Republican President. This is politics as usual and both parties are equally guilty. Both parties are equally corrupt because the environment in D.C. is corrupt. It’s business as usual. We are supposed to be in charge of our own country. We “hire” our elected officials to do what we want them to do. We gave up that power years ago so our elected officials took over for themselves. It doesn’t help our position to insult each other and name-call. We all want the same basic things, just have different ways of getting there. We had better start working together or kiss America good-bye. Just one registered Independent’s opinion.

  • Allen

    Instead of calling each other names we need to focus on voting in Novemebr. Trying to convince anyone that they are wrong through name calling and abuse never get’s anyone turned. As Christians we need to be respectful of other’s views, whether we agree or not. You can’t change a person with words, it’s going to take a lot of hard work. But we need to act the part, not speak the part.
    No president has ever come near to being perfect. Whether we believe Mr. Obama to be legal or not is no reason to be disrespectful of the Office. If we have nothing good to say about someone we should say nothing. Don’t feed someones ego by always talking about them. Stay only with the issues and not our petty dislikes. Let’s get our country back on track by working together and agreeing to disagree.

  • Steve

    First and foremost, we don’t have a president in the white house. It has been an unmaned position for almost 2 years, a President of the United States of America has to be a natural born citizen, not born in Kenya and have your whom ever give you $1.5 million to help keep the information hidden from the American people. Guilty by spending the $1.5 million and it is as simple as to start the Impeachment process to get to the bottom of this…..not put American people that have tried to find out the truth in jail and fined……As I said ” Guilty by the $1.5 million he spent hiding the information instead of just showing you birth certificate, not a certificate of birth. It is a huge differance, that’s why our fore fathers made this a Law, so someone from the outside could not come in to destroy America from with-in……

    • VMC

      Steve: Have you ever requested a Certified Birth Certificate from the state you were born in? Do, it and see what you get. It will doubtless look quite a bit like the one that is on the White House website, for PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA……………Get over youselves, folks.

      • 45caliber

        Mine doesn’t – and neither does the ones I’ve seen from Hawaii.

    By the way, Bob, did you notice that George W. Bush spent nearly 3 1/2 years of his 8 year tenure on vacation.

    • 45caliber

      From my place it appears as if Oblama has spent 3 1/2 years of his time on vacation already – and he’s not been in a full 2 years yet. He has certainly toured the world several times on my dollar.

    Hey:Sapphira Sez There was no FOUL LANGUAGE in what I wrote. the author of this article didn’t want to be called a piece of (yes, it’s brown and smelly and the word is not ‘shyte’ ) Saying someone is a ‘piece of ‘____on my dartboard’ is not a foul language….. i should have directed the ‘piece of crap’ on my dartboard as any of you evil-mongers that promote hate by your awful comments! ruined my day for sure, reading this, so gladly, you strange person, I am unsubscribing. I would NEVER learn anything from you: Go on, now Sapphiruius I dare you. I’m outta here, and the door kicked you in the face, my fake pretty. Thank you for all of your negative comments — just saw another one that Karolyn replied to. YOu are the one that needs to be OUTTA HERE because you’re a negative beast.

    and yes, I am unsubscribing, and you should sneak your fake name and put it where the sun doesn’t shine. I’m sure you don’t shine like a sapphire. Three of the words deleted from my comments were not even foul language, but an attempt to cover up what someone thinks of people who promulgate HATE by being PEOPLE HATERS. and there are not any commenters on this website who are True Christians if they hate anyone, especially the current commander in chief. I will pray, in my own way, for those of you who continue to persecute other human beings. Do you think he wants to see this country go to ruin? He just visited a college campus where almost ALL PEOPLE UNDER THE AGE OF 26 plan to vote democratic, and to re-elect him. The power of the people is in the youth, and in the future. If McKain had been elected, we’d be at war in multiple places and still at war in Iraq. The US should focus on the US and sustainable energy, sustainable resources, and get the hell out of these other countries for good. And whoever called me a liberal, it said right in my comment that I am NOT A LIBERAL! I just do not vote democratic, do not vote republican — if there is not a good, honest candidate to put in office, it is best not to vote at all aside to prevent EVIL like WAR from occurring.
    good bye to all of those people here that don’t have something kind, loving, helpful to say; things that promote PEACE OF MIND FOR ALL and not DIVISION AND HATRED IN THIS COUNTRY. There AINT NO TIME FOR HATE – or in the words of Jimmy Cliff, for no time for ‘fussing and fighting, cheating and lying, and hatred….’ How does that make anyone’s day brighter? Elect who you will; it will all remain the same until EQUALITY AMONG ALL is the goal. (no, not socialism, EQUAL OPPORTUNITY FOR EDUCATION AND EMPLOYMENT)

      First off Shoshana he couldn’t get enough students to fill the room, second only his supporters showed up. They would vote for him, no matter what.

        It’s almost like a death sentence. Hope he makes it and you don’t make the mistake of sending your offspring to war again.
        I lived with an Iraq military vet for over a year–your son may never be the same when he returns. PTSD is real and I almost was killed by it. Of course I’m no longer with the PTSD victim who did two tours of duty–he was extremely abusive and almost killed me.
        Even if the war is not over in Iraq, some of the troops were pulled out. at least that is progress and there are not being more deployed (there, anyway) I am against all war. I think a country should defend itself, if necessary, within its own borders and stay OUT of other countries. time to develop sustainable resources.
        No War for Oil.

          Shaoshana,
          WHAT A CRUEL THING TO SAY TO ALLEN, who has a loved one in harms way.
          I have had very close relatives serve in Iraq at the very height of the war. Prayers do work for our loved ones Allen.
          I am proud of every man and woman that served in the military or any part of the services. They didn’t ask for these wars, but they did stop them from coming over here, and they did answer the call of their Country. To say we need to wait till we are attacked is ludicrous. We were attacked. It is NOT fun and games. People lose lives, like they did on 9-11. You think our economy is bad now, just let them blow up several major cities in this country and let people feel the fear of going to work if they still can, and feel the fear of trying to get to the grocery stores, if they can still drive down a road that has holes in it from all of the IED’s. Schools would probably stop as who would dare send their child to school to become a target, if you could even drive down those roads with the holes in them.
          Sorry, that was NOT a brilliant statement.

          • Jana

            And, by the way not all of them come back with PTSD.
            I am sorry though that you had to live through this with someone that did, and I am sorry for him too. I do hope he gets better, and gets some help.

          • Karolyn

            Unfortunately, they are not fighting for our freedom. They are fighting for big corporations. War is big business.

        • Pam

          You need to check your facts. The news yesterday said that Fort Riley in Kansas is sending more troops to Irac. According to my nephew and brother-in-law, the mission is the same, just the name has changed.

    Hey ROG: The man is FAR FROM COMMITTED TO DESTROYING THE CITIZENS OF AMERICA. Oh, did you say I’m an adoring idiot or wasn’t that intended for me? I don’t think Barack is good-looking or especially adorable… confronted with those who are apparently ‘on the dole????” my state doesn’t have welfare, you ignorant person. Not all states do. No one is too dense to see reality. GOING TO WAR CAUSED OUR COLLAPSED ECONOMY AND THAT WAS THE IMPETUS THAT TURNED THIS SPIRALING ECONOMY DOWNWARD LIKE A ROW OF DOMINOES and it is just getting worse with you hateful people spewing BS. Your despair is warranted… for YOURSELF. Your words are despicable. Your despair is deserved.
    Yes, I might be negative to those of you who won’t hear one person’s voice crying in the wilderness without calling them a ‘name-caller’ or ‘full of hatred’ when the things deleted weren’t even foul language. Amazing…what people will do to cover things up. The man is not trying to save the world, but despite what you all say, he is VERY POPULAR THE WORLD OVER, aside from the anti-American terrorists and their growing numbers of legions, of course.
    OH, AND THE COMMENTS FROM SOMEONE CLAIMING TO BE ‘CONSERVATIVES UNITED’ ARE EXTREMELY IMMATURE, AND EL-STUPIDO, MUCHO-LOCO, EVERY SINGLE ONE!!!!! Buh-bye

    • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Jill

      @ wars sure does cost the nation alot of money but if Obummer didn’t spend millions upon millions of dollars and is continuing to do so, we would not be in this trouble. When I overdraw at the bank and do not have enough Pesos to pay for things, I go on a budget and take back some items I have purchased. Obama thinks we can spend our way out of a crisis which even catholics know better than to spend when you are over budget. Stop the spending and budget.
      Obama is not popular in other countries he only thinks he is. He is still a U.S. President and 137 nations stayed to hear Amidinejon blast the U.S. and talk about her destruction. Only 37 nations got up and left. Before you read your blogs from liberal resources, find out facts.

      • http://duh Shoshana

        Please shut up. How many countries are there in the world? And of those 137, why do you think only 37 got up and left? Maybe I didn’t do my research, but if all of you so-called Americans are going to ‘hate’ the president for what he has done, or will do, why not hope that he is more popular in other parts of the world…..
        How many countries in the world attended the
        Amidinejon talks anyway? Don’t you think they were ‘afraid’ of the terrorists or other Anti-Americans themselves — feared attack themselves? I bet the other 100 countries reps that didn’t leave are in close proximity to someone making nuclear weapons. It’s all about FEAR. LOVE is letting GO of FEAR.
        How is your comment about that meeting going to make things better here at home? Do you think your comment to me made yourself have a better day? Would you like George W. Bush back in office? Who would you like to see in office? Since you hate our commander-in-chief so much, maybe you should ask him why that happened at AMidinejon.
        At least he pulled troops out of Iraq, as PROMISED. 1-1/2 years in office is not enough time to clean up a disaster brought on by WAR that our former commander-in-chief started. Most of us watched helplessly as citizens were BOMBED and innocent people KILLED.

        • JeffH

          Can you say 58,000+ armed “ADVISORS” still remain in IRAQ and most likely a majority of those pulled out will go to Afghanistan anyway.

          • Jana

            JeffH.,
            Did you catch what Soshy said? I will copy and paste her words.

            Please shut up. How many countries are there in the world? And of those 137, why do you think only 37 got up and left? Maybe I didn’t

            do my research, but if all of you so-called Americans are

            Did you catch the part about “you so called Americans”. Wow, does that mean that she is NOT an American. Yep, if she lives in the United States it says she does NOT consider herself an American. That says it all.

  • Ken

    Good lord! I dare say Obama could definitely use a break–from the radical, right-wing, ignorant, racist haters of the kind that visit this site and spread such venom. Get a life, you idiots!

  • Whatnext

    So other then him needing a break (which doesnt surprise me). What is the best way to get this guy out of office? What is the best way to get people involved in getting rid of him? This puppet does need to go away but how do we do it? Vote? Yes, I will vote and always do but can we count on our votes being polled correctly and honestly? How about the freaks that are working obama’s every word to distract us and make us think he is doing what is right for us (LIES!!)while they put together there evil plans in getting prepared for the “new world order”, how do we make them go away? Can someone answer those questions without getting pist? Thanks

    • Whatnext

      um….hello? Anyone got any pointers orrrr?

  • Allen

    The only reason he has not been impeached is that it would take the House to do it and the Senate to try him and convict him. With a democrat controlled House and Senate it would be impossible to impeach or convict. (look back at Clinton with a split senate)) We have to wait till after the Congress changes hands. Even if it does and the House impeaches, don’t hold your breath for the Senate to convict. But the chances will be better after January when the new Congress takes seat. What we need to do for the future is to ban all political parties and force the candidates to run on their own platforms. One primary to reduce the field to 2. Then a General Election to elect a president. Allow each cqandidate to run on contributions equalling no more than 4X the pay of the office being sought for each election. All extra donations to be put into new voting machines. Then we can look for term limits on all politicians.
    First thing is to vote Nov. 2.

    • http://duh Shoshana

      impeach for what? convict for what? for being handed a ruined country and inflated economy? read the commend I made about your son. I hope he does not have PTSD the way my former partner, Wade, did when he returned from Iraq. It was VERY scary. He would black out and not know what he was doing. He has been in trouble with the law ever since returning and has had difficulty adjusting to civilian life and maintaining employment.
      I do not wish war on anyone. I think it is wrong to defend the U.S. on foreign soil. Obviously, by all the hateful posts in this forum, the WAR is ALSO AT HOME.
      I still have “Impeach Bush” hat in my belongings that someone had given to me. What exactly did you want to see Obama TRIED, convicted and impeached for, pray tell? For trying to do his job to the best of his ability and being treated like DIRT.
      CHENEY WAS THE RAVING LUNATIC BEHIND BUSH; BUSH WAS A PAWN. BUSH’S FATHER AND REAGAN WERE BOTH WAR-MONGERS. THIS IS THE DIRECTION THE COUNTRY HAS TAKEN AND SOMEONE NEEDS TO PUT AN END TO IT.
      Money for FOOD, not bombs. Money for EDUCATION, not war.
      On a positive note, I do hope your son is OK on his return. You will certainly notice changes. War changes people forever.

        Shoshana,

        Well said.

        “He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, scince for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance, how violently I hate all this, how despiceable an ignoreable war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.” — Albert Einstein
        Thanks to Alexander Elsing

      • Pam

        How about for force feeding us obamacare. Our constitution prohibits forcing a citizen to purchase something he/she doesn’t want.
        How about for not protecting our borders from the invasion of illegals. And on top of it places the sovereignty of the US in jeopardy by reporting the state of Arizona to the UN Human Rights Council, run by some of the biggest human rights offenders in the world.

    • http://duh Shoshana

      Hey, at least you are making suggestions and offering possible solutions to the campaign fund mess and the greed in politics by saying there should be no political parties. Thanks for this comment, as I agree: “What we need to do for the future is to ban all political parties and force the candidates to run on their own platforms. One primary to reduce the field to 2. Then a General Election to elect a president. Allow each cqandidate to run on contributions equalling no more than 4X the pay of the office being sought for each election. All extra donations to be put into new voting machines.” That shows some thought and it may just work.

    • Bluebonnet

      You are correct in the only the House can impeach. This could very well happen. Bill Clinton was impeached but not convicted by the Senate. What a new Congress could do, however, is pass NEW campaign finance laws that would settle the issue of how much money can be infused into campaigns and where the money comes from. A new Congress can also set new ground rules on lobbyists. That would be good for starters and we should insist upon it. In others words, we take the money out of the game.

  • owen

    are we actually going to have to keep paying this guy at the end of his term if we dont impeach him first?

    Why don’t you pus brain jackwagon socialist idoits, just get your dead asses off of welfare racks and do something productive in life, but suck on the government sow’s tit. If you idoits think that USA can talk to the perved muslim morons and they will understand work for understanding, look at the over educated do nothing in the WH. That pistol gripped, jug eared, marxist, muslim, moron cannot do a damn thing productive, unless you call job losses an accomplishment. The reason the USA has trouble in wars is because crap brained democraps want to pusify the rules of engagement. I doubt if any of you wimpy smucks have ever been in a real fight in you life. When those pedophile, goat rumping, muslims attacked the USA. GW went after the bastards instead of playing golf and flogging the log for weeks to make a decision. Thank God that crossbred bastard never has a real need to make a instant decision. Of course that is the way all National Marxist Democrat Communist Party runs their MO.Shashana, your posts show just how damn moronic you are, you don’t have a damn clue how to spout any facts but pure unadultarated B–l s–t. All the times that crossbred bastard went traveling, putting USA down and tell other nations USA is wrong anfd evil.as well as acting like a marxist muslim scrote, he has lied more in 24 months than a death row convict can in 25 years. Your last comment must mean, you are an illegal of and anchor calf or just a stupid smurf with a sewer drinking habit from the democrap party.

    I don’t even know where to start…. HE ???? needs a vacation ????He’s stressed out ??? PLEEEZE !!!! I along with Millions and Millions of Americans would be glad to give him his remaining 2+yrs off with pay! if he would just go away…this is what you do with many employees who just can’t cut it. He is our employee whether he acknowledges that fact or not. He also wants ALL our children to stay in school year round simply because the unmotivated , illiterate , nonparented inner city kids can’t frigging read. All the other students are managing just fine thank you and they deserve a summer break to learn and spend with their families. You know when he was elected I was mortified but I did think he and his wife have an opportunity unlike any other president and first lady in the history of the United States. They remind you daily they are the first African-Americans in the White House. They secured > 90% of the black vote and if the vote was done again tomorrow they would get the same %, Not on merit but on skin color. They could have a huge impact on the horrible deterioration of the black communities. But they do not care about them at all. Michelle, the affirmative action queen, only cares if YOUR kids are fat…actually she doesn’t…it just makes her feel superior and gets her face out there…It will be one of the happiest days of my life when they exit the White House however that might be accomplished !!

  • Robert Wayne

    Yeah, I guess it’s pretty hard work trying to destroy a country and turn it into a communist shithole the way Ocrappo has been doing since he was put into office by the imbeciles of this country. Why don’t you take a break Ocrappo. Go to McDonald’s. “You deserve a break today” used to be the jingle for their commercials. Go to McDonald’s, but remember not to use any salt on anything.

    I was taught to respect the office of the President of the United States and others who hold responsible positions. I am distressed at the lack of respect reflected in many of the comments. Nothing positive is gained by the name calling. I truly wish that a civil, thoughtful discourse could have been pursued, but alas, the lowest levels were reached.
    I consider myself a moderate in my philosophy both politically and socially. If the remarks made by the commentators reflect the hearts and minds of Conservatives, then I am truly appalled and pray that your vitriolic feelings will never be given a wider forum.

    • Kinetic1

      Sorry Shirley. From my experience on this site I can tell you that you will NEVER get any respect for President Obama form these folks. Most of them are still convinced that he is neither the real president nor even an American. Just watch as the “proof” comes flying at me. It’s a sorry site to see so many frightened people lashing out, but this is what our country has come to in the age of FOX news and right wing radio.

    • WideRanger

      Shirley Hobby—you are hereby commended for respecting the Office of the President…everyone I know does. But there is a difference in the Office of the President and the bogus guy occupying it. He has to earn respect, just like the Office of the President has earned respect over the years. Obummer doesn’t respect the Office, because he wants to dismantle our country, our customs, our heritage, and our freedoms so he can rebuilt it as ‘he thinks it should be’..Marxist! Remember his speeches pledging to ‘transform’ our country (government)? That is his goal, and he has to destroy it so his rebuilding will meet with less opposition. He envisions us a ‘third world country’when he is finished!

  • Give me a Break!

    The Liberals/Democrats have for years tried to change this country into a socialist/entitlement nation and thank God up until now, we’ve been able to fight them off. Reading the arguments on both sides is very entertaining, but taking vacations and who is more guilty than the next is minute compared to the real destruction he has caused. Kinetic 1 dabbles in numbers, like most Liberals do, with a less intellectual like Eddie to back him up, justifying a community organizer like Obama for his lack of leadership and his obsession against the wealthy and successful (exceptions include the unions and Government workers because he has control over them and they voted for him). I’ve come to the conclusion, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist with numbers like Kinetic 1 to figure out, that Obama and all that support him want one thing, the complete change-over of this country from capitalism to Socialism. No matter how hard each side tries to make their points, and each side has done that with exceptional passion, we’ll never be the unified country we once was with this one-sided political correctness attitude. Big Government control is not the answer yet this president and the Liberals that follow him, continue to insist that this is whats best for the American people. We know whats best for ourselves, and no one has the right, Government, Main stream media or a President voted in under the assumption of change for all, to tell us how to live our lives. Kinetic 1 commented that we’ve become an age of Fox News and right-wing radio, that can’t be further from the truth. There are more people who watch the Left-wing main stream media networks and continue to believe everything that Obama and the Government tells the media to say. The age we are going into, is Government control of the people and our loss of personal rights and freedoms this country has enjoyed for over 200 years.

    • PissMilkShake

      If the code of federal regulations, the laws that back that monster up, and the ongoing law making and law defining by the courts are not enough to prove the intent to control the populance, what more is needed? A government enforcer for each individual.

  • eddie47d

    The issue on this forum was on vacations. Why don’t you go after the liars who keep insisting that Obama has taken more vacations than other Presidents.We know that is not true so what does that make of the other commenter’s or even Mr Livingston? You can grandstand on capitalism vs. socialism all you want and that is an important debate. That still doesn’t change the dishonesty that is shown on the numerous comments here today. Alot of folks on this site don’t like liberals and that is their choice. I choose not to trust commenter’s who lie and distort subjects everyday. They drain credibility on the subject matter and the subject matter always leans to the right. You ought to be more concerned about i41 and his daily barrage of insanity. Both Flashman and Kinectic keep things on topic and offer a different point of view and that should be welcomed. Many times they strengthen your own opinion and sometimes they show your bias. That is a part of the debate process.

      YES, YES, YES! Warren Buffett is a truly great American! He has given away so much for the good of others. I saw the piece where he compared his payroll deductions to his receptionist and reported how unfair it was. Then he elected to have more taken out of his pay. More sould be like him and Bill Gates and not greedy SOBs like many of the others who are afraid to part with a dime to help others. I believe Buffett challenged fellow billionaires to follow his lead and did get answers from some of them but the majority stayed silent.

  • PissMilkShake

    The Presidents have all taken long breaks, vacations, and retreats with few exceptions. President Obama can go to Mecca and stay two years as long as VP Biden is not allowed near the nuclear football. If the President has no influence on vacation, his absence is a blessing. The last good thing he did was have the Somaliee’s shot.

    I am greedy and do not see the value of Buffett’s policy. He should fight to have all taxes lowered. He should be frugal in his spending so as not to run up prices and inflation. He is not our servant just because he is sucessfull and wealthy.

Either you are marxist smucks and you love and defend croupt democraps which you smurfs are. This purple lipped muslim liar is a con for EU and any other 3 rate country. This crimminal bastard is just that, cann’t produce a birth certificate. I have sold enough pure bred livestock to know papers do verify when a vet tagged the offspring. Also this puke spent millions covering something, of course Whorehound Clinton’s drug use and questionable investment and rapes never got checked out. Several witnesses just disappeared or committed “sewercide” at a quiet spot, just like Barry’s faggot roommate all died in a month before he announced for the phony crooked presidency. If you wimps get you bloomers in a knot, tyough nuggies, I hate socialists and appeasers to corupt morons.
