    They have definitely taken a lot lately. I don't begrudge them a vacation but dang they go on a lot.

    There was a site that pointed out that Reagan and Bush (second one) took more vacations during their first year in office than Obama. http://www.factcheck.org/2010/01/pre...vacation-days/

    But did they spread them out some. They're taking a lot really close to each other. And the way the economy is it just seems excessive to take so many in such a short time.

    Seemed like Bush just went to go play golf alot, or spent time at his ranch.

    yea, they (presidents) all do! i also saw and read that her and the girls trip over seas was on THEIR dime, not ours. i'm sure some of it is on us, but i do know that some of the other trips are on their budget, NOT ours.

    I may come off sounding shallow but I wish I could take a vacation. I am the working class poor, I can barily afford to eek past a exsistance, last time I was on vacation was for my 21st bday six years ago. Obama says tighten our belts and them leaves on extravagant vacations on MY tax payers dime, oh heck no! How does he get away with this chit??

    You're not being shallow at all. The only vacation I've ever taken in a long time is visiting family. And I haven't done that in a long time. I hate it when people say we need to tighten our belts all the while they're living a life of the rich and famous. I wonder how they'd handle it if they really had to tighten their belts and not do anything or go anywhere.

    Do you think she (Obama's) paid for all the staff and security to go along with her? Not only salary but meals & accommodations? I'm pretty sure that was on our dollars! (so she could spend her dime.)

    I don't think this president (of whom I am not at all fond) is going and doing any more than any other past president.
