Oh, another hard hitting "NEWS" (as opposed to nefarious propaganda) item from "journalist" Katie. Let's see....if I remember correctly, Ronald and Nancy Reagan NEVER spent any time on their ranch and, of course, the serial vacationer (where was he during Katrina....anyone remember?) George Bush & Laura were NEVER on their Texas ranch. No, never. And, of course, Townhall ALWAYS covered their vacations....I'm sure.

*yawn* Insanity is doing the same thing over and over.

Coming to a site where you disagree with all the articles: kinda nutty.

Coming to a site to complain that the writers don't write the articles you want to see (whatever those might be: nuts

Coming to a site to complain that the writers don't write the articles you want to see, when those other articles are on the site: into the deep end.

Ok...so try this: What's more expensive; a trip to a private secured residence, or TWO trips to public places which have to BECOME secured?? Are you really that dense??

Serial vacationer Bush? List all of the places the Bushes visited together & apart & include all golf times with a side by side comparison of the obama's vacations. And then give me video where Bush says we all have to tighten our belts & then his Mrs. Bush jetted off with her entourage to Spain. The obama's in 2012 alone spent $1.2 BILLION of our money on their vacations. And in 2012 they weren't taking as many!

Their vacations never cost the taxpayer. They went to their own homes. At least Bill and Hillary mooched off their wealthy 1% friends when they went on vacation, not the taxpayer. The Obamas have been mooching off the taxpayer their whole lives.

You are right about the hard hitting news AO. There is more important stories such as a thirsty man takes a drink of water.

You're missing the point, the two GOP examples you gave were those presidents private living quarters. They did not interfere with other vacationers, tie up city traffic, etc. President Reagan and President Bush simply "went home" for their vacations.

AO:
I don't recall the Bush's ever running up the expense of separate vacations. Plus, their ranch had to be guarded 24/7 by Secret Service anyway so the cost of them going there was much less than any of Obozo's vacations.

No Mr Wizard but the MSM did ad nauseam.

One couple, two taxpayer funded vactions. More from White House Dossier

First Lady Michelle Obama plans to vacation in Aspen, Colorado this Presidents’ Day weekend, separately from her husband, who will land this evening in West Palm Beach for his own down time with the boys.

According to Aspen newspapers, both Michelle and Vice President Biden are expected on the slopes. The White House has not yet announced the trip, and it’s not clear when she will be leaving, though she will presumably go today.

Michelle’s separate excursion from the president...
