    How hard he works? N.Korea is sending off a missle and he is running around with a squirt gun. You would think he would be interested in what they are doing. 19 vacations in 3 years. One every 3 months. Yeah he's working hard. P.O.S. Mike.

    It's not his fault. He's never had a real job, so this is all new to him.

    The Really Big Obama Carbon Footprint Submitted by may on August 23, 2011 - 12:26am

    Barack Obama and the First Family are on vacation with the very rich and famous. Even when he is on vacation, President Obama maintains his status of having apparently the largest carbon usage footprint of any person in history. Obama’s energy consumption just for his travel and that of his family is enormous.

    An entourage of 40 large black vehicles transported Obama to buy ice cream and some books. None of these vehicles even remotely approach the 56.2-mile per gallon CAFE standards, which Obama is insisting will be in place in 2025 and forced upon we the people. The gasoline consumption of the Presidential limousine remains confidential.

    The 747s used as Air Force One are rated at 5 gallons of jet fuel per mile (60 gallons per minute) by Boeing. The number of airplanes accompanying Obama’s Presidential travel can be in the dozens.

    The Obama’s are also wasteful in their travels, with it not unusual for First Lady Michelle Obama to travel in a separate airplane. Mrs. Obama departed for Martha’s Vineyard early so she could have a few extra hours of vacation. It is estimated that her separate early departure cost we the taxpayers an extra $100,000.

    First Lady Obama departed early for their Hawaii vacation last December, again at an estimated cost of $100,000. If there exists a reason for the separate travel arrangements, it would be beneficial to the American people for the White House to explain the reasons for the separate travel. Perhaps the separate travel has security implications of which we are not aware?

    President Obama repeatedly asks all of us to sacrifice and to do without. Obama is asking those who work the hardest, often not ever taking vacation time for themselves, to give more money to our Federal government to recklessly spend. It is not surprising that President Obama’s approval ratings are going lower. His -24 Presidential Approval Index rating reported on Monday was the lowest Rasmussen has thus far recorded.

    President Obama and the Obama First Family travel in great luxury and at significant cost to the American people. I do not recall President Obama or any other member of the Obama Family thanking us for the opportunity of living in the White House, traveling in private Air Force and Marine aircraft, and for us paying their indulgent expenses. This might be something one should expect from royalty but not those who think they are royalty.

    The reporter is St. Louis's Larry Connors. He's a throw back from when journalists reported mostly the truth. At one time you couldn't tell what his politics was. He now has had to show his conservative side to make sure the news is told truthfully in the St. Louis.

    Missouri is a little like Illinois in that St. Louis is a lot like Chicago. Lots of libs in the city while the Tea Party folks occupy (no pun meant) most of the rest of the state.

    Larry asked more tough questions than the vacation stuff.

    We need a lot more news anchors like Conners.

    While “Obama has taken 61 days of vacation so far,” anchor Scott Pelley noted over a photo montage of those he cited, “at this point in their presidencies, George W. Bush had spent 180 days at his ranch, where staff often joined him for meetings, and Ronald Reagan 112 days at his ranch. Among recent Presidents, Bill Clinton took the least time off -- 28 days.”Read more: http://newsbusters.org/blogs/brent-baker/2011/08/18/cbs-comes-obama-s-defense-vacation-time-after-they-cue-him-prognosticat#ixzz1s5YuMrsH

    I liked Johnson he used a small aircraft for his trips wherever he could and for lady bird. He was very aware of the expense involved and tried to keep those costs down
