The Facts About Vacations. Barack Obama vs George Bush

The big controversy now is that Republicans are trying to hammer the President on is his vacations. President Obama and his family decided to take a 10 day vacation in Martha’s Vinyard, but Fox News, Sarah Palin, Donald Trump and the rest of the Republican presidential field have read their talking-points and are zeroing in on the President’s family time as “inappropriate.”

Here’s some of the lies from Donald Trump;

The fact is, he takes more vacations than any other human being I’ve ever seen. They used to complain about George Bush, but I understand he’s already exceed George Bush and we’re not even through the year, so he likes vacations.

But take a look at the video below. It shows the difference between the vacation time of the last few presidents and the hypocritical nature of this Republican argument.

I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!

    Barack goes to rented homes in Hawaii and Matha’s vinyard taking over 1000 people at taxpayer expense.
    Total LIE…

    Let’s face it if you are a Democrat it’s because you are either uninformed, not very bright, or have never really contributed to society in any tangible way. Some have observed that you must be mentally ill to be a Democrat, and have dealt with them for over 60 years, I’d have to agree. There is something simply wrong with their brains.

    That’s a really stupid premise. Sure they went to the emergency room when they were really ill, put up with the long lines and got triage care. Now they walk in the front door and expect the same care as paying customers. Although the per visit cost of emergency care is higher, general care is much longer and actually much more expensive. The emergency room argument was disproven long ago.

    Look, its pretty simple. Insurance companies work by SELLING insurance to a large group of people, setting their rates at a number higher than what they expect to incure in costs. Then they can make a profit. If they guess wrong they lose money, which is why they do so many studies and work to control costs, negotiate deals with doctors, hmo’s etc….

    If you add a lot of people to the cost side, but no additional “payers” they become financially insolvent. Its as simple as that.

    Obamacare was supposed to provide “insurance” to the huge black population that can’t afford insurance by giving them benefits that they didn’t have to pay for – because they could not affort the premiums as they were mostly on welfare anyway. The idea was to get young white people to pay premiums for coverage they typically didn’t carry to offset the costs.

    The problem was the numbers for Obamacare were old, and the models defective. Abortion has lowered the number of young white people to pay for the inclusion of the welfare crowd, and the system collapsed under the load. To fix the system low cost coverage provided in some plans was cancelled, and costs for everyone went up. To deal with the reaction of the people they opened the borders to let more people in who would add to the “payers” (eventually), offsetting the effects of white abortions.

    It’s not that hard to figure out, if you know how insurance companies oprerate. By denigrating insurance companies for trying to make a profit Barry Soetoro and his Democrats destroyed the engine that was keeping medical costs under control, and the system has exploded.

    General Accounting Office – a resource unused by most Democratic Party operatives to whom the Democratic Party is a religion.

    Not really Paul. The Democrats are the hidden political arm of the multi-nationals, while the Republicans represents America’s small business community. Sometimes their agendas are in sync but often they conflict. Both sides often ignore their oath to defend the Constitution – and that’s what we should hold them accountable for. The idea that the Democrats represent the little people is such a farce that only really dumb people would believe it – but there are lots of those around.

    Well I admit Fox News does its share of support for the worlds multinationals because they are in fact one of them run by elites who have interest other than giving you the actual news. But CNN and MSNBC are much worse!

    No, he inflated the dollar so much that the numbers changed, which is why other countries are moving away from the dollar. The fact is when you inflate the world’s standard currency for international trade, you are robbing the people of every country of assets they keep in reserve for international trade – even the poorest ones where people work for almost nothing. Barry Soetoro and Hillery have stolen billions from the poorest nations to support their political agenda. We should be, and are in fact (at least those of us who understand world banking and reserve currency topics) quite ashamed.

    But your number is wrong anyway. Check it out. Barry’s debt during this first term was greater than ALL other presidents combined. He did impact foreign trade – but it was done by selling expensive weapons to Muslims – and in case you don’t know how that system works, on one hand we show the income and reduced deficity – but in fact we loan them the money to buy the weapons with taxpayer funds. So the net effect is that taxpayers buy the weapons by inflating our own currency.

    Its a great game the Democrats have created on behalf of the multinational financial agenda and it fools most uninformed citizens – like you.

    He’s just another low information Democrat. Take a look at the War Powers act, and if Congress has to be involved, are you saying the attacks by Hillary and Barry on Lybia were illegal? The list of military actions by Democrats that were/are illegal is long. They often have to use military force because their logic and argument and diplomacy are so defective they usually fail. Do you think Obama bowing down to the Arab Sheiks was a positive jesture? Imagine any president except Barry Soetoro bowing so low his ass was in the air like a common whore. Go look at the video.

    Except in Benghazi we have video which is hard to refute. Sure there were attacks under Carter, Reagain, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama. But the incompetence and idiocy belongs to Hillary and Barry Soetoro. We had marines available to send in to help but they were ordered to Stand Down. That has NEVER happened before – until we got our Muslim president. In combat there has always been a protocol for helping American’s being overpowered. In Vietnam it was “Broken Arrow”, which called in all available combat aircraft to join the battle. A single F-16 flying by the embassy at low altitude a Mach 2 would have ended the attack. Hillery and Barry intervened. Those planes were MINUTES away from Benghazi. Combat troops could have been there in less than 30 minutes. This is what our guys train for. American’s don’t let Americans get over run by superior forces, which is why the nearby CIA operatives came to the embassy to intervene, and fought till they died. You discredit America, its traditions, and it’s military honor. You are obviously a Democrat.

  11. Umina October 11, 2014 11:04 am

    Yes, but who paid the bill. It’s one thing to look at the costs, another to see who paid.

    Here’s the problem with your article – which is obviously a lie. You are counting vacation days and forgetting missing playtime. Barry Soetoro has played 800 hours of golf. You can’t play 800 hours of golf in 70 days unless you play over 10 hours per day. Those facts come from credible sources and are in the news right now.

    When Bush went “on vacation” he went to the Texas “mini Whitehouse” set up at his ranch in Texas – where he often entertained and met with world leaders – like Putin. Do you remember the pictures of Bush driving them around in his pickup truck with a cowboy hat on? Barack goes to rented homes in Hawaii and Matha’s vinyard taking over 1000 people at taxpayer expense.

    So stop telling lies yourself.

    If you haven’t figured it out, the Democratic Party is the party of the mega-corporations – including all of the big oil companies. Their job is to lie to the little people like you – low information voters – to obtain political power for the mega corporations. That is why oil prices are suddenly dropping like a rock. They fear they are about to lose the political power of the Senate. The mega corps pay the Democrats to lie and make promises they will never keep and then denigrate the small businesses-men (Republicans) for refusing to pay.

    Then they denigrate “Congress” to confuse people like you – when in fact they control the Senate – the most powerful HALF of Congress, and have for the last 6 years.

    If you want to complain or make technical comparisons, get your facts right and stop being a water boy for the multinationals. If you need more evidence – why do you think “Anonymouse” is attacking the big banks? The fact is that Barry Soetoro has given trillions to them since he got in office, and everyone except you seems to know it. The freedom fighters in the U.S. and abroad are attempting to take them on.

    Why do you suppose the billionaires support Democrats? Its becuase they own the multinationals and they want to keep their investments safe – by keeping the new small businesses from ever becoming big enough to compete. Since most people are employed by small businesses, their success causes unemployment. Figure it out guy, and stop hurting the very people you think you are helping by supporting Democrats – the party of dishonesty, deception, and fraud.
