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.

GUESS WHAT!!?!! Number 67, the black gene is more dominant than the white gene so that would mean that his black side is more dominant than his white side. You can tell by his skin color. Some people get more of the white gene but Obama is not one of them. He looks black.

Why should he over tip? Most of these workers don't even file honest income tax returns.

Why is it that whenever I send an email and type in the word Obama, my spell check wants to delete Obama and put in Osama?

Janet,

Apparently our spell checkers are narrow-minded, ignorant, and WRONG. Much like those cute, little right-wingers. Entertaining but gets annoying fast.

He's just another Idiot    

I voted for Obama - the worse thing I've ever done. He will probably be impeached before his term is over. He is a tin-horn, arrogant, dictator, with crazy ideas on how to run this country. Bugeyed, Botox Pelosi and dimwitted Reid are as bad as he is. We must not them take us down the path to Socialism. Thank God his approval rating is falling fast.

The real problem with health care is the exorbitant prices! The doctor fees,hospital fees and prescription fees should be tightly
regulated.The business should be minimally profit based.Why does a visit to the er and a few x-rays cost $5000!ABSURD! Insurance is a
big scam and corrupt.If prices were reasonable,we wouldn't need insurance companies!Fix the real problem,Mr. Obama-greed!

TMZ must not have much to talk about, what did the clerk do that was so great to deserve a tip? wait on him? Do you tip the clerk at the general store? A tip is : A small sum of money given to someone for performing a service; a gratuity.!!!! you tip someone when they do something you are grateful for, Im tired of people thinking they need to be tipped for everything or even nothing by celebs. etc. etc.
