    Every President takes expensive vacations. Get over it, there is nothing we are ever going to do about it.

    Meanwhile, I will complain that Ohio taxpayers spent over $400,000 this year on upkeep and utilities on a Governor's residence in which out Governor doesn't live.

    and the whacko democrats complained when Bush traveled too.


    CCrunner..you could take 4 million dollar vacations. Just become President. Although that spot on your record where you were caught diddling the cross dressing lunchlady at the school while a bunch of grade schoolers watched may come back to haunt ya.

    He's the POTUS, whether you agree with his policies or not he's earned a little R&R. Don't be a total idiot.

    Eh, in the real world people earn vacation time basically by being on the job for a certain amount of time.
    And to be honest......when most of us go on vacation we dont have to do anything for work and just get lost in whatever we do...the Prez cannot do that. He is probably never more than 100 yards away from his actual work.

    Dont like the guy either...but just bbecuase I dont like the guy doesnt mean I think he shouldnt go on a vacation.

    Creative accounting by the right wing. Already been proved. Moved this to the political forum where it belongs.

    This.

    Anytime the President goes anywhere it's going to be absurdly expensive because of all that is required. Unless you've literally complained about every President that has ever taken vacations then this is really not a thing to gripe about. Wasn't a big deal when Bush took them isn't one now.
    If there's an architect, let's see the plan, let's see who gets it next

    You should work hard enough to be in his position then. Isn't that the Republican line of thinking?

    The next time you go somewhere and require $3.5million in security, you can have a $4million vacation.

    The conservative line of thinking is that no government job should be something that one aspires to, not even that one.

    I was just talking about this with a co-worker. When I go on vacation, I pay my expenses like hotel, etc. Who is paying President Obama's? Did he budget for this trip and paying for his vacation like anyone would? Or are we, the taxpayers, paying for it? The security is his choice. You can find pictures over and over of other presidents and how few security personnel they used compared to this guy. It's kinda like Lebron and his posse vs some of the other big stars who are much less casual.

    Umm... why wouldn't somebody think that, in order to earn something, they'd need to work for it? You say it's the "Republican line of thinking" as if it's a dig on Republicans...?

    I am sure he is paying for his family, do you also expect for him to pay for his security?
