This President seems to be on vacation every other week.   Of course, as we, the taxpayers, are paying for them...why not ?   Unfortunately, it leaves little money for us to spend on our own vacations.

It doesn't matter.  He doesn't accomplish anything while he is in Washington.

@MrsJAZ He does? Compare his Vacation time with that of the last guy(3 times as much) and then get back to us.

@demej00 False -- the President pays for his own (and his family's vacation), just like anyone else.  The big numbers that get thrown around are the expenses for Presidential support.  They also are still on the job, 24x7x365x4 even if they aren't in the Whitehouse. Daily briefings and decision calls at any hour of the day or night.

@SomeoneWhoThinks @demej00 please do not overburden ignorant bigots with facts.  btw, does the president own a yacht?  a family "compound" or ranch?  does he own 4 houses like the last wannabe president?  has he gone on vacation 32% of his time in office including a 5 week absence?

@swagger @SomeoneWhoThinks @demej00 You have to realize that Republicans want to BLAME the President about EVERYTHING !!!!!!  I am WHITE and I can see its pretty much a racist thing !!!!!!!!   You NEVER heard this kind of bashing about any other president !!!!   and WHY do Republicans say they will pass NO bills until the Presidents term is over ??? They will do NOTHING that will make the President look good !!!!!!   I am SO ashamed of our government !!!!!!!!!!!!   Republicans think this is a GAME !!!!  they always talk Republicans against Democrats,,,,,,,,like its a F&$#@&%  baseball game !!!!!!!!!!  problem is WE THE CITIZENS are the losers !!!!!!!!
