    "That means posting the fact that Bush didn't quit golf for the troops, he did it after the bombing at a UN base. The wingnuts continue to portray it as some kind of patriotic sacrifice he did for the troops when it was nothing of the kind."

    I assume Bush had security at the ranch, which costs money just like Obama's security does.

    Because everyone is so upset over Obama's security.

    Seriously?

    That's rich coming from someone who can't articulate the reason for their displeasure at a PotUS for taking a vacation.



    -------------------------------------

    Um...that's because he hasn't posted anything about displeasure at the POTUS taking a vacation in this thread...DUH!

    Why are some on the Left struggling with this? How do they not get they are being mocked for their whining about Bush's vacations during his administration?

    I see you don't posess the language skills necessary to articulate the reasons why a PotUS vacation is so upsetting to the wingnuts.

     

     

     

     



    That's because I don't have an issue with Obama taking vacations.

     

    so, is your Obama altar in the bathroom?

    If it isn't the cost of security then it truly is Obama derangement syndrome.

    It can't be the amount of vacation time, that's obvious.

    All presidents pay for their own personal expenses while on vacations, so it can't be that.

    While the president pays for lodging, food and other incidentals, the government pays for Air Force One and the expenses of Secret Service that must travel with him for his protection.

    That is true no matter where a president vacations. So every time Bush went to TX or ME it cost the taxpayers just as much as it does to protect Obama in Martha's Vineyard. Actually it is probably less for Obama because it's closer to DC.

     

    Now I see why you're having such a hard time articulating the wingnut anger over vacations because when all is said and done, the only thing you have left is the "because I hate Obama" trope.

    Maybe it is Bo the dog getting taken to the island on his own osprey.  But, I hear that Bo always wanted a ride on an osprey, so, maybe it's a birthday present, or something.

    Re: Wingnuts go beserk over Obama vacations. How does he compare to other presidents.

    Since he clearly takes less overall vacation, that's not something for people to get upset about.

    It's my understanding that those who are upset are upset over the scope and overall costs associated with the Obama family vacations. When so many people are out of work and struggling to make ends meet it seems amazingly tone deaf to take the sort of vacations that they've been prone to take. When they close the White House house to visitors due to a supposed lack of funds while flying the family dog up to the Vinyard there seems to be a disconnect. I think that people wouldn't bat an eye if the President and his family spent a couple of weeks at Camp David to rest, he does have an incredibly demanding job, but that's not what's happening.

    I think that the real issue is that they seem to be acting like royalty, not civil servants.

    Ummm, shouldn't the leader of the free world be treated like royalty? Have you been to the white house? It's got a staff and guys dressed up as soldiers to protect him. There is even a fence around the place. It's like a palace!

    I know, I know, as a lowly civil servant, he should be in a condo, but a nice white condo, right?

    Ya, he's the president. Though I didn't vote for the cheerleader in charge, once he wins he deserves all the perks that come with the job. It's part of the deal.
