Obama Vacation Tip Not All That

8/30/2009 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Barack Obama is usually quite the gracious tipper, but stories of him dropping dollars in Martha's Vineyard are a tad exaggerated.

Barack Obama

It sounded like a good economic indicator when it was reported today that the Prez tipped the clerk at a general store $15 on $5 of ice cream and candy. But according to the clerk we spoke to, Barack took his change with him: "What tip? He didn't leave a tip. We don't have a tip jar, he took his change."

However, at the second store he visited, Barack did let the clerk keep the change -- a whopping $1.99.

Every penny counts.

If President Obama had left a huge tip,then there would be a big hooplah about him spending money unnecessarily while the country is in a recession! Some people will find fault with a person no matter what. Also, I have never left a tip in a candy store, who does that?!

Sadly, the racist, crazy, extreme right wing of the party will not be happy until Obama is assasinated - yes I said it.
With all of the talk of death panels, pulling the plug on granny, slitting wrists to defend their rights, guns at town hall meetings, etc etc etc... it will happen - that's what they want.
Nice Christian values, eh??
