hahahahahha!!!!!    

Gee, I wonder if TMZ would have been as kind with their headline had Cheney told the truth and said it's a disgrace and embarrassment that our PRESIDENT is seen using our tax payers' dimes for date nights during these hard ecomonic times? Even the Chan man is PC. Somehow I guess you Socialists over there at TMZ would have been much more harsh.

I can only imagine how you tools would have reacted had Bush done the exact same thing. Your hypocrisy is laughable.

hahaha - Bush didn't take "cultured" date nights with Laura, that is true - he DID however cost taxpayers about $100,000 per month flying to Crawford Texas every month to whack at tumbleweeds. If a date night for the Obama's is all the neo cons have to bitch about, it's pretty pathetic.

@ Bob, # 75. Cheney was always for state rights to decide on gay marriage, along with Bush. This isn't new news to anyone with half a brain.

@ henrythecat, # 76. Every month? Hmm...that's a bit of a stretch. And no, there's plenty more to "bitch" about. The fact he's proposed the most expensive spending bill, compared to all previous Presidents COMBINED, is something most sane people don't support. The fact he's destroyed the car industry and is trying to nationalize everything he can get his Socalist hands on is another. He's losing us more jobs per week than Bush did in any given month. Oh yeah, and the fact he has no problems with Iran and N. Korea having nukes is another. Not to mention he's more concerned with having parties and "date nights," all at the expense of the tax payer of course, instead of actually working is another. The complete list would take weeks to complete.

Nice to see the Neo-Comms are fine living in oblivous lala land.

Pay attention - Bush spent 977 days on vacation. According to CBS news, he made 77 trips to Crawford for a total of 490 days, and 179 trips to Camp David for a total of 487 days. Who payed for THAT?? And where was the outrage then?? That means that more that ONE THIRD of his presidency was on vacation...but I guess it was OK because we all knew that Cheney was running the country from his underground bunker anyway, right??

Henrythecat - LOL!!! CBS News!!?!?! You might as well say you got your info from Bill Maher or Keith Olbermann. Bush wasn't on "vacation" while in Crawford or Camp David, numbnuts. Why do you think they called it the "Western White House?" He had all his aides and advisors with him while he was at either location at all times. He met with just as many world leaders there as he did in D.C. Vacation is flying around the country on the tax payers' dime going to broadway shows, Beverly Hills, ESPN studios, LA to appear on Leno, catching every sporting event currently going on, etc.. I'm willing to bet Obama has at least quadrupled days away from the White House during his first 4 months in office compared to Bush. All the while we're "supposedly" experiencing the worst economic times in the history of the world, at least according to CNN. So it's nice to see our President and VP are chillin', going to shows and soaking up the sun while the nation suffers. Right????

pay attention - if Bush did EVERYTHING he did in Washington in Crawford Texas, then why even go there?? Doesn't that seem like an incredible waste of taxpayers money?? Did he just like flying in Air Force I?? And how much did it cost to fly all of the advisors and such?? Is it because he was raised in such priviledge that it didn't even occur to him that he was wasting money?? Hmmmm...seems like a waste of money to fly somewhere else to do the exact business he could do if he just stayed in D.C.
And if you just google "Bush vacation time" there are at least 20 different sources for his time off - not just CBS. He is KNOWN to have taken more time off than any other president..second only to Reagan.
Do tell about the lavish vacations Obama has taken so far. I don't think he has been to Chicago yet, and I think it's just been once or twice to Camp David. The last family trip I think he took was back to Hawaii, in December, before he even took office. Any trips he has taken were for townhall meetings or official presidential business, not frivolous vacations. What are we betting?? :)

You mean the same liberal Google that if you typed in "complete failure" it sends you to links of Bush? LOL, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight!!!! Please, provide your "sources" if you think you're right. How much did it cost to fly his advisors? Are you pretending to be dense or are you that stupid? Air Force I is a large plane, so they can all fit on it I assure you. He wasn't in Crawford that often at all, as well you know, but when he did he was still working. Something Obama has yet to do. And yes, Obama has been back to Chicago. And he spent nearly two weeks in Hawaii AFTER the election as well. You clearly know nothing about what you're attempting to debate and look foolish. He has also taken a "lavish" vaction to Europe with his wife, and no, it wasn't on official business. You clearly don't know the difference between "traveling while working" and "vacation." Billy boy was on vacation for 8 years, no matter where he was. Wasting money is flying Air Force II at a low level around Manhattan terrorizing New Yorkers for a ridiculous photoshoot. You're so incredibly wrong about everything you've attempted to talk about it's almost pointless to continue this. But thank you for showing me just how uninformed and clueless kooks really are. Keep taking what Bill Maher tells ya as gospel cutie :)

Holy moly now GOOGLE is liberal and evil?? I am amazed that FIXED News would even allow itself to have a website on this horrible internet...
OK - you go to Bill O'Reilly or Hannity's websites and let me know just how many vacation days Bushie took. And it was very silly of you to ADMIT that Obama's trip to Hawaii was AFTER the election - but BEFORE the inauguration, so he wasn't president yet, was he. That one clearly is not a "presidential" vacation. He actually went back to scatter his grandmother's ashes and relax before he had to start shoveling the doody from the previous administration. And details please on the trips to Chicago and Europe (do you mean the G-8 summit??) That is pretty lame to call that a vacation. The poor man is trying to repair our international relations that were trashed by Darth Cheney. Who, btw, has admitted today that there WAS NO link between Iraq and Al-Quieda(sp?). My God, why didn't we just go to Afghanistan in 2002, it could all be over by now. Is he gearing up for that war crimes trial? Is that why he won't go away? I will, however, give him props for his support of gay marriage. But I do have to wonder if he would feel that way if his daughter were not a lesbian.
One more thing - If the advisors were with him all of the time in Crawford, ahem, working, there must have been some sort of extra perks. Maybe the families went along?? Who would give up their own vacation to sit in Crawford and work. And you will not admit that it would be silly to fly to Crawford, at taxpayers expense, to do work you could do in D.C. At $100,000a pop to fly to Texas with security...why not just stay and save the taxpayer's money.

Wow, maybe you aren't kidding and you really are that dense and clueless. If you never heard of the google search scheme they had with the phrase "complete failure" that led to Bush sites then you really are living under a liberal rock. Yes, it's pretty common knowledge that the Google boys are massive liberal Socialists. Take a peak at their campaign contributions and educate yourself.

So you still can't back up your lie, my bad, your "claim" that Bush was on vacation and not working? Hmmm.....you're digging your hole deeper and deeper cutie. How is it not a "vacation" after he's been elected President and spending 10 days in Hawaii? What he did before becoming President (which equals nothing at all) doesn't matter. I'm fully aware he went to see his Grandmother (who he allowed to live in the slums of Hawaii just like he does his bother in his mut hut and his illegal aunt in the ghettos of Boston) before she passed, but his 10 day VACATION AFTER THE ELECTION was as President. Is it sinking in at all? What more details do you need besides the most important one? He was on VACATION in Chicago and Europe. No, not for the G-8 summit. Do you even know what that is? LOL!!!

No hun, what Obama is doing is bending over and taking it up his pooper for every foreign nation out there that wants us wiped off the map. He's being the world's bitch and that's why they laugh at him and have no respect for him. And no sweetheart, Cheney did not say there was no link between Al-Quada and Iraq. Where did you hear that, from Bill Maher? You are truely gullible and very naive if you think the only terrorists in the world are in Afghanistan. I would have to say you are either mentally retarded or under the age of 12 if you think that. And no again, Cheney has ALWAYS been in support of state's rights to do with gay marriage as they please, just like Bush. You look very uninformed and foolish. No little fella, there will be no war crimes trials. That's a liberal, anti-American's fantasy wet dream. Besides, it's becoming more and more evident your girl Pelosi was all about some water torture since she not only knew about it but signed off on it :)

Poor little fella, you still don't know the difference between vacation and traveling while working, do ya? Why on earth would the families need to come with his staff? That's just stupid and desperate on your part. I would much rather have my President fly to his ranch a few times a year than have a douchebag idiot like Obama in office spending trillions and trillions of dollars, that he even admits we don't have, on unnecessary bailouts just so he can have the government owning the banks, car manufactures, etc. How are you enjoying owning half the banks and the majority of car companies in the country? LOL!!! Somehow I bet you'd rather have Obama flying to Chicago a few times a year instead of coming up with new bs bailout plans every other week putting us further and further in debt. Do you know that if you have a kid tomorrow he's already going to owe Obama's government $37,000? Please get educated on the FACTS and stop embarrassing yourself with trying to talk about grown up matters you clearly know nothing about.

It is pointless to argue with someone who thinks that EVERY media outlet that is not FOX news is corrupt. That they are all liberal liars. I actually now feel sorry for you that you are so brainwashed by the likes of O'Reilly and Limbaugh that all else is evil and false.
I actually watch ALL of the cable news channels - I can admit that most of what I see on O'Reilly and Hannity amuses me, but I watch it. And some of what they say is plausible. And I do watch Olbermann and Chris Matthews (don't really like Maddow, too dry) and sometimes I can chuckle and see that they are stretching it to make a point, THEY ALL DO IT!! The only one I trust to not have an agenda is Anderson Cooper. I can see the game that Fox and MSNBC play and I don't bow down to one or the other.
You attitude in the above message is very demeaning and hostile. I called you silly and I get back "dense" "clueless" "gullible" "naive" "mentally retarded" "uninformed" "foolish" "stupid" "desperate" and "embarrassing." Do you even realize how bullying you conservatives really are?? It really smacks in tha face of Christianity, doesn't it?? Do you go to church and say that to your fellow parishoners?? That is maybe why I could never be a Republican - and don't trust the motives of so-called "Christians." I know the type, and they are represented by mean bullies the likes of Limbaugh, O'Reilly, and now you. And if we are talking education, why listen to those who have NO college education themselves (Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Beck)? But I guess that Wikipedia lies too.
So sad that you are just like Limbaugh - have to really put someone else down to make a point. That kind of attitude will only drive the remaining Whig, I mean, Republican members out - good luck with rebuilding that party. The Democrats won't do you guys in, you will do it to yourselves.
There is fun political debate, and this is not it anymore...
