We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Huff post? Try again. Lol.
Here's another. Have you found anything recently where he said he was going to take the vacation, no matter what?
President Obama was planning to kick back with some golf and fun in the sun in Hawaii this weekend, but instead he might be stuck in Washington watching Congress duke it out.Press Secretary Robert
May want to check the date "TUESDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2010"
And your first link was from 2011. Major fail for you CMXI. LOLOLOLLOL
There very easily could be an Anti-Deficiency Act Violation, unless a contingency plan exists using non-US funds to provide security with USG Employees. This, of course, is IF our talking head Congressmen do not pass a budget.
Someone goes to jail for ADA's. Pick a Cabinet member.....
Since I didn't vote for him, can my tax dollars not be used for his vaca?
You're not allowed a vacation in times of need. i own a restaurant. That would be like my executive chef at the end of the year saying, "I'm owed a week vacation and I'm taking it in december." Ummm...no you're not.
Hey, I'm supposed to leave at 7pm.
We just had a bus with 55 walk through the door. You're going nowhere.
Waitress-I'm first out this evening.
Me-When I say you can leave, you can leave.
You want the greatest role in the world? Then you sir, have the GREATEST responsibility. Above yourself, your family and any of your relatives and/or friends.
You wanted the position buddy, now own up to it.
Yes, that's how that works. Each taxpayer has a line-item veto over any federal spending.
I am a conservative, and I don't like Obama. With that said, good for Obama and his family. Time together as a family is important.
Also, the president is never truly on vacation like we are.
Even when it cost an obscene amount and Congress will be back in Washington flushing the country down the toilet? Lol. The guy wanted to be President, presidents don't get to have normal family lives, he needs to learn to live with that reality.
That doesn't seem obscene in my book. Someone talked about how in today's world stump speeches are obsolete. Well in today's world, the President is always up to date with the happening in DC and around the world. He maybe on "vacation", but it isn't a "vacation" that we would be taking. He doesn't drop everything and forget about "work", he is still involved. Don't be naive.
Well all that is pretty obvious and is something we are all aware of. What you don't seem to get is that it cost several hundred thousand dollars or more for each one of those stump speeches, depending on where they are.
And 4 million is a ton of money for a vacation. Lol. I can't believe you actually said that.
I have no problem with the cost. Considering what it takes for him to take a vacation, I am fine with it. The cost of security for him and his family is worth it.
wouldn't that be sweet. We would get out of debt real quick
Wait what? Because the criticism is mounted by those you perceive to be looking for issues to criticize, the criticism has no legitimate substantive basis?
The cost associated with his vacation is why he should reconsider the length and location of it.
Where is CMXI at? Lol!!!!!!
There are worse things to about. The President and his family can/should vacation where they want. The cost of security for his family is worth it.
I always think this is a football board but somehow keep forgetting it's a board for stupid political opinions...
The $4 million needs to be taken into context that the President has to take all his business, portions of his staff, security, of course his family and everything he needs to work from a satellite location.
As much as I know that the US will face another recession in 2013 and I feel Obama will not be able to successfully negotiate falling off the cliff - even the President should be able to go home to Kenya..... Whoops - I mean Hawaii.
Sounds like there is a double secret bunker in Hawaii
I think the difference is Obama takes vacation while calling it "work" while Bush would actually take his vacation at his ranch.
Face it, Obama doesn't treat being President like a job, he has no idea what a job is anyway.
...are you seriously this stupid? Seriously? This is actually impressive.
When you're the President of the United States, a vacation is just working in a place with better weather. There's no sillier thing than arguing about a president's vacations, no matter who's president.
What does it matter if Bush spent $20M? Why are Democrats still so caught up on George Bush? If he was so bad and you hate him so much, why constantly compare Obama to Bush? Is he the gold standard on what a President should do? Bush defined Obama's 1st term as much as Obama did. It's getting a little old.
