“Some of our viewers are complaining, they get frustrated, even angered, when they see the first family jetting around,” St. Louis TV reporter Larry Conners said to President Obama at the White House during an interview on April 12th. So, Conners asked President Obama a pointed question: how much time are you spending on vacation?

“The economy is a big issue and concern for folks,” Conners said to the President. Viewers complain, “you’re out of touch, that you don’t really know what they’re experiencing,” the reporter said.

  • Obama took 13 vacations in his first term, which spanned 83 days.
    Obama vacations have been much more lavish than Bush's.
    Obamas annual vacations to Hawaii alone have cost taxpayers at least $20 million during his first term.
    In 2011 alone, Michelle Obama may have cost taxpayers $10 million on vacations herself.

    Bush only "vacationed" to his ranch in Crawford where he conducted Official Govt business and met with World leaders.

  • We are in sequester now. If they can't keep criminals off the street or keep the national parks open then maybe they shouldn't be going to the Bahamas for spring break.
    If I can't go on vacation neither should obama with my money.

  • There is difference here. Where was Bush when he was not in DC. Most likely he was in Texas, at his home, doing business from there. How much did it cost the taxpayer when Bush was not in DC? Now look at the cost when obama and his fat assed wife take their vacations!

  • People complain because none of these other presidents were jet setting around while simultaneously spending trillions that we don’t have, all the while passing no budget.

    Oh, wait, I meant, people complain because he’s black.

    • @Tanngrisnir3 He actually hit the nail on the head when he said "democrats were warned of an impending collapse of the economy due to their demand for mortgage giveaways" 100% correct!!!

  • Um this has already been debunked Bush WORKED at Camp David and at his HOME in Crawford. He wasnt renting homes, taking separate vacations from his wife and children on the taxpayers back unlike BHO...

    BHO is not only the campaigner in chief but the vacationer in chief

    (and NO Im not a fan of Bush b4 some libertard tries to say I am)

  • Bush didn't use BS budget cuts as a political weapon while 50 million Americans were relying on food stamps to eat. That is the point.

  • Not to be believed for several reasons.
    1) Written by Obama media lackey.
    2) Does not include golf.
    3) Other Presidents were able to function without teleprompters, which requires intellect and thus more vacation.
    4) Other Presidents were not lazy.
    5) Other Presidents went on vacation for extended periods with staff - a movable office if you will.
    6) Obama is a stuttering clusterfuck of a miserable failure.

  • I'd like to see the numbers (oh, i've already seen them) of the Sasquatch First Lady's vacation numbers.
    We are an economic downfall, you don't have to go to the Bahama's, or Hawaii 4 times a year. Sit your overbited mouth and ass down, and stay at home.
    I'm so sick and tired of working my ass off to pay for this bitch's vacation romps.

  • The apologists are out in numbers. Mr. Soetero needs to be on a long vacation. His second term vacation should be 365 + 365 + 365 + 366 = 1,461 day vacation...and then I will be happy. Regardless of the cost per day, mile, lobster tail, or girl bike ride, it will be worth it. Trust me.

  • The more these assholes are out golfing, the less they can fuck up the country.
    The scary part is, they are getting so efficient at it, they can fuck things up in their sleep.

  • I haven't had a vacation day in over seven years. That's because every day is a vacation day for me because I enjoy what I'm doing. I hope self-employeed people agree.

    I punch the clock like every employee when I remember in order to set an example.

    What's the level below atrocious?
