    The "financial meltdown" was over Bush having stymied it. The Stimulus came after the job lose rate had already bottomed out and the recession ended and blew past it's own asserted 8% unemployment peak to 10% and stayed over 8% for the next four years. It was a total and wasteful failure.

    He claimed his residence as Illinois where he served in the state legislature as a citizen of that state.

    I never read inside to see it was claimed it cost 200 million a day. Just that he reserved 870 rooms in what had to be the most expensive hotel in India. It wouldn't be hard for any of those reporters to look and see what the cost is for one night and add in how many nights was stayed there.


    This gives a pretty good idea, although never mentions the India trip and what some of these hotel rooms cost.

    New Obama vacation costs uncovered; They now exceed $70 million

    I think it's totally appropriate that when Donald takes THAT much time off that he pays for the bill too.

    Says who?
    The OP still stays it costs 115 million in taxes.

    I sourced that Obama has cost the US far less than Donald when taking time off.

    The article claims the story is totally doubtful, so there it that. lol

    Obama 8 years: 70 million
    Donald 3 years: 115 million

    That has been my point. Exactly what do you not understand?

    Obama is from Kenya, Not Hawaii. Trump is from Queens, NYC, not New Jersey.

    Normally I'd agree with you on this however while running for the presidency Trump publicly stated that he wouldn't time to play golf or take time away from the White House since he would be so busy. He's already played more golf then his predecessor.

    So, why is Trump taking people who are not in a position to do anything?
