Here's my question...Dad is unemployed...but apparently, since this girl
was at a "take your kid to work" day, Mom works in the White House.Meaning Dad is a stay at home Dad, and they have apparently been making
ends meet for three years living in the DC area, but for some reason...they
think there is a problem?That's the real story here. What a
sad commentary on our society.
@Schnee:It's discrimination to excuse Obama, and not Bundy.Did Obama pay vacation fees?
To "Schnee" actually, when you look at Bush's time away from
Washington and compare it to Obama, you find that Bush was just working from
home while Obama is out on an actual vacation.Did you see the report
where some news agencies actually compared how much Obama's vacations cost
taxpayers vs. Bush? So far Obama is the biggest spender of your tax money for
@TRUTHIt's symbolic. They don't actually expect a job from
Michelle, they're highlighting something that needs further action. Maybe
Boehner can pick up one of those jobs bills Obama wants... @worf"If they did, where did it come from?"Taxpayers cover
things like security detail (something that of course is kind of a given
wherever they are anyway) but personal expenses are not paid for with taxpayer
money. And for all your and Tajemnica's focus on vacations, Obama's
taken fewer of them than Bush did (on a per year basis, just so you don't
assume I'm merely comparing 5 years to 8).
@ Tajemnica, you may despise the President, but your assertions about the
President don't hold any water at all. You claim I quote "the
pschobabble (sic) the media feeds you." I really don't know what you
are referring to. I can point to the numbers and reality. Note, for example,
an economy in 2008 that was in such dire shape, there was talk about suspending
the Presidential campaign. It was the beginning of the worst recession since
the Great Depression. We have, by the numbers, finally recovered and the
business sector is experiencing its greatest profits in a very long time. I can
go on, but you really can't. You, Thid, Cactus and other critics take
shots, but you offer no facts and nothing based on what really goes on in the
world. I would very much appreciate constructive comments. Perhaps in 2016,
you can give me affirmative reasons to vote for the radical right wing instead
of tearing down the twice elected leader of the country. I doubt it though.
Truth is offensive?Hundreds of millions for vacations is not part of
Obama's wage. This is factually correct with many news organizations. The
Obama's may not have that kind of money on their own. If they did, where
did it come from?And we are upset with grazing fees?
@ Esquire While I agree that truth's comments were offensive, your
naivete is more offensive as Obama has done squat in office other than spending
tax payer money on vacation time and using pretty words to make it sound as if
he actually has had anything to do with the economic recovery. When you quote
'facts' you need to quote facts and not the pschobabble the media
feeds you. Thid Baker and Cactus have a better understanding of what Obama
himself has done for this country. Nonetheless this girl should be applauded for
what she did. Either way because of her actions I believe her dad will have a
job soon. It may not be with the administration but the story is out there and
someone is bound to notice and offer him a job as long as he has the
qualifications to merit.
The last job the father had was working for the campaign to re-elect President
Obama in 2012. He was successful in helping Obama get re-elected, and now
because of the economy Obama affects with his policies, the man has not been
able to get a job since. You can't make this stuff up.
Because of Obama, the middle class has greatly suffered in America. May I send
Mrs. Obama my new much more expensive Obamacare health insurance plan, since her
husband promised me I could keep my much less expensive old one? And I am still
waiting for the $2500 per year my family was promised we would save each year in
healthcare premiums because of Obamacare! How does that little girl know
anything Obama tells her won't just be another lie?
@ Truth, I find your comment to be offensive on so many levels. To say the
Obamas are takers is not only factually incorrect, but disrespectful. And on a
more macro level, the President has led an economic recovery from the utter
disaster left by the prior Administration. I am sure the facts cause you pain,
but you will just have to deal with it. More venom helps no one. Further, the
fact the Mrs. Obama made a point of not forgetting the resume speaks to big
hearts and concern for those who aren't mega-rich. I will be greatly
interested to hear the follow up on this story.
When you are part of the problem, sending one a resume is really a waste of
time! This little girl could do better sending her fathers resume out to a
maker rather than another taker like the Obama's!
Beautiful, strong daughter. Her parents are doing well raising her.
