Obama’s Taxpayer Funded Golfing Trip Cost More Than A Year’s Worth Of White House Tours 

” All presidents spend too much of the taxpayers money I think it’s fair to say, but perhaps if things are so tight that White House tours must be canceled it would make sense not to send one’s wife and children on a taxpayer funded ski trip to Aspen. Or maybe as Krauthammer suggests, not go on a taxpayer funded golfing vacation with lessons from Tiger Woods costing thousands of dollars per hour.

It shows complete contempt for the taxpayer. How dare Americans insist on cutting government. Who do you think is going to pay for all of this?”

    Here’s an idea , How about we require presidents to pay for their own vacations in their entirety ? If that fails to suit them they can have all the vacation time they want at taxpayer expense at the taxpayer-funded playground we re already paying for called Camp David . 

   If that idea doesn’t suit them then don’t run for president , plain and simple . The job is supposed to be about them serving the people and not the other way around . There is no reason in the world that the citizens should have to foot the bill for ANY PUBLIC SERVANT’S entertainment/vacation expenses .

    And while we are at it , there should be a no campaigning clause for the president as well . Let’s revise the job description once and for all . If you desire the presidency fine , but here are the rules … get to Washington … stay in Washington . No campaign trips , no fund raising trips , no snarling traffic for hours in the city of your choice , costing the taxpayers billions so you can raise money to help keep your place at the public trough .

   All travel must either be for official business or be paid for OUT OF POCKET by the man and his family just like the rest of us . This merits further thought . We open the floor to your suggestions . Leave them in the comments if you please .


White House Releases Photo Of Obama Firing Gun

Just asking , but does anyone have a gun that smokes from two directions ?



” Two days before President Barack Obama’s first trip outside Washington to promote his gun-control proposals, the White House tried to settle a brewing mystery when it released a photo to back his claim to be a skeet shooter.

Obama had set inquiring minds spinning when, in an interview with The New Republic magazine, he answered “yes” when asked if he had ever fired a gun. The admission came as a surprise to many.

“Yes, in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time,” Obama said in the interview released last weekend, referring to the official presidential retreat in rural Maryland, which he last visited in October while campaigning for re-election. Asked whether the entire family participates, the president said: “Not the girls, but oftentimes guests of mine go up there.”

Few could recall Obama ever talking about firing a gun or going skeet shooting “all the time.” “

” “The only time he shot skeet was for President’s Cup,” said the source, referring to a shooting competition tradition involving the presidential Marine guards. “I was there. He stayed for about five minutes, and couldn’t leave fast enough.”

Skeet shooting “is very hard,” said the source. “Especially for someone not used to guns … He couldn’t have been more uncomfortable.”

The source said a friend of his recalled Obama skeet shooting one other time at Camp David — very early on in his first term. “

New Republic Falls For Fake Picture Of Obama Skeet Shooting On Parody Site




” The liberal New Republic magazine, eager to prove that President Obama participates in skeet shooting even if Jay Carney can’t corroborate it, tweeted a picture of Obamaappearing to hold a shotgun while at Camp David on Tuesday. Shortly after tweeting it, the New Republic deleted it.

The reason? The photo was fake, and came from a parody website called whitehouse.gov1.info.

The site clearly says, “not the White House” on the top of the page, with the banner, “parody of whitehouse.gov.” ”
