    Obama spends $4 million of taxpayer funds on one 17 day christmas vacation for his family. W spent $2.1 million on his christmas vacations, FOR ALL 8 YEARS!

    I'd gladly pay $40 million to see Obama go on vacation full time and do absolutely nothing until Jan 2013.

    Worse than the whole lavish vacation BS is Michelle's penchant for flying ahead, ON YOUR DIME...instead of going with Barack. A TOTAL slap in the face of the American Taxpayers who are footing the bill. Last time they went to Martha's Vineyard....she had to have an entirely separate flight,security,etc,etc....just so she could get there 4 hours ahead of the President.

    Not withstanding the financial hit the taxpayers take, he does less damage to our country when he's on vacation .

    As for Shelly leaving early.....too bad she didn't find Amelia Earharts vacation spot.

    I have to agree with Brad D.----& daddioooo, it probably costs taxpayers less to send that thing on vacation than to have it at home.--Ross Puls

    Just remember, Fat A** Shelly wants to tell your kids to eat veggies in school, meanwhile, she is stuffing her fat ugly face with ribs and fries.

    4 mil is a drop in the bucket compared to what he has wasted since he took office.

    He should stay in the lower 48 and give 4,000,000 to the truely needy. I would not think any more of him but it would be a nice thing to do at "Christmas" time. Notice I didn't say holiday time.

    "Thrift" is not the culture of this administration. I don't particularly admire Jimmy Carter but at least his habit was to wear a sweater so they could turn down the heat in the White House and he asked them to turn off the lights in rooms not being used.

    Obama seems to be trying to burn-up as much money as possible and his attitude is reflected throughout the govt.

    Look at all the jobs he is creating taking these expensive vacations. Sure would hate to see all of his pilots, jet mechs, additional security and staff laid off because he was frugal. Look at the bright side, at least most of that money is staying home! Mike
