Obama is golfing, fly fishing, playing basketball, calling up athletes to "congratulate them," vacationing in Hawaii, vacationing at a lake in Russia, vacationing in Yellowstone, vacationing at Martha's Vineyard, and vacationing at the Grand Canyon. Do you know how much the house costed us tax payers at Martha's Vineyard to RENT on his little vacation? $20 million. And do not even get me started on the oil spill. Remember how much liberals cried during Katrina about Bush even though Bush had FEMA down there quicker than Obama made any gesture to the oil spill? Why you ask was New Orleans such a lawless dump after Katrina? BECAUSE OF NEW ORLEANS poor planning, their ignorance, their arrogance, and their stupidity. Not Bush's.

"Later, it was found that FEMA had provided these supplies, but that FEMA Director Michael D. Brown was greatly surprised by the much larger numbers of people who turned up seeking refuge and that the first wave of supplies were quickly depleted.[4] The large numbers were a direct result of the insufficient mobilization and evacuation before Katrina's arrival, primarily due to city and state resistance to issuing an evacuation order and risk "crying wolf" and losing face should the hurricane had left the path of model prediction. Had contra-flow on highways been initiated sooner and more buses begun evacuating families (including the idle school buses that were not used at all) the numbers of stranded New Orleans occupants would have been significantly less making the initial wave of FEMA supplies adequate and even excessive."

Now for the oil spill.




Or what about the fact that Obama's spending dwarfs Bush's? How about this? http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/54400 (broken link)

So good for the economy I know right?

And now that we have an intelligent president who just happens to be black, all of these frustrated white men with a sense of entitlement , tag all the problems on him.
WTF? Where the hell did race come into this? It's like liberals can't comprehend any other reason for not liking someone other than the color of their skin. Did you never think that perhaps conservatives don't like Obama cause they in fact don't see him as intelligent. I'm sorry, but an ivy league degree does not qualify one to be President.

And this is why the US economy absolutely dwarfs any economy in "Europe or anywhere else".

Nah, I prefer beer.

RussianIvanov - I agree with you sir, but stop focusing on vacations. It distracts from the real issue that progressive policies are killing our country. To tell you the truth, I wouldn't mind if Obama went on vacation for the rest of his term and didn't do anything else. Hell, I'd pay to have the President and all members of Congress and Senate to go on a paid vacation for the next five years. Our economy would recover much more quickly that way.

But yet you think that George Bush (who has never read a book cover to cover) and Sarah Palin and that senile dimwit Mclain are intelligent? Is that the best you can do?

I don't care if they're intelligent or not. All I care is that they stop fu**ing with our lives and stop antagoning businesses.

I love how you think you can judge intelligence anyways.
