    Can’t wait to see how the Libs figure out how to make this ok for Obama to do and no one else…on the Republican side of the aisle, that is.

    I believe the White House and the land upon which it sits are worth considerably more than 7 Mil. Are we readers of Editorial Toons supposed to ‘criticize’ Mr. Obama for living there?

    Here’s the bigger question: Can Mr. Payne think his way safely across an intellectually busy street?

    ^ And is Mr. Payne capable of drawing a cartoon that does not mention golf?

    It would be nice if people focused on what is important. How about revising the tax code to get rid of all the loop holes and inversion? Some kind of reasonable immigration law would help. Fix the thousands of bridges that need it. I guess it is just a lot harder to draw a cartoon about a dysfunctional Congress.

    “I’d prefer politicians didn’t live the life of the wealthy”

    Believe it or not, they have to pay for their own meals at the White House.

    Obama now lives on George Orwell’s Animal Farm: Everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others.

    Hey Mr. President, what was your golf score today?
    Did you have a low score, or did you throw your card away?

    Hmm, and Boehner spends over $70K a year on golf green fees to play with truck drivers and fry cooks on their days off??

    Isn’t Congress still on vacation?

    If we take the theory held by many on the left that sexual scandals are only relevant to conservative politicians (“BECAUSE OF THE HYPOCRISY”) Boehner should get a pass. If anything the logic of the theory fits him better.

    Well, we’ve got one party that wants to sell the country to the highest bidder… and another party that wants to hand it over to the CEO with the nicest hair.

    Living in the White House is a fixed cost. Taxpayers pay the same for it whether the current occupant is there or vacationing somewhere else. When he does go on vacation, we get the privilege of shelling out for the temporary digs as well.

    But that is all besides the point. Obama is fixated on being the voice of the “99 percent”, but he hangs with the 1%. That is the definition of hypocrisy. His policies are forcing most Americans to experience the joys of a staycation. Why doesn’t he share in the experience?

    denis: where do you keep coming up with the idiotic accusation I don’t pay taxes? I pay property tax, income tax (state and federal), taxes on wine, tobacco, utilities (phone and electric), gasoline ($0.47 a gallon in my state), but do not pay the most repressive of all taxes in my state, the sales, or “fair” tax (which certainly is NOT for middle or low income folks).


    If there was a B.S. tax, a high one, it might really nail all the radical right-wingers in Congress, and their constituents, like corporate contributors, and their less than informed supporters in the “populace”.

    ‘ol Henry is indeed a one trick pony. Obama does see himself as the Rock Star in Chief, but that is not an issue. We created that monster. The only difference between him and Bush is that Bush waited until leaving to ’replenish the old coffers’ and Obama has consistently acted as Chief Fund Raiser partly to offset the Koch brothers and partly because he likes it.

    One thing that would help if the public would stop purchasing books written by presidents: Those running, those in office and for the first 2 years after leaving office. We make them rich and then complain about it.

    We’re idiots babe, it’s a wonder we still know how to breathe.

    “Can’t wait to see how the Libs figure out how to make this ok for Obama to do and no one else…on the Republican side of the aisle, that is.”

    Disingenuous<.a> much? Obama isn’t taking more vacations or spending more time fundraising for his party than his predecessors, yet you, Payne & the rest of the right wing media pretend otherwise.
