    There should be a bunch of new positions at the IRS and Dept of Justice as a lot of people need to be terminated and replaced!

    Listen! If you want to create more jobs, we have to fight to keep our jobs American. GOP is shipping them overseas to increase profit margins. He's trying to get this message through to you but none of you can seem see past the color of his skin. Always blame yourself for any mishaps in your life.

    The last guy vacationed at his own home...how many times has Obama "vacationed in Chicago at his own home"?-affirmativediversity

    Irrelevant.

    He pays his own hotel bill. The taxpayers don't.

    The FLIGHTS are the cost... and Bush took WAY WAY more of em.

    Seriously, do you honestly believe that people are going to forget the Democrats used "reconciliation" to pass Obamacare because they COULD NOT GET THE 60 VOTES required?

    It was an underhanded, slimey way to squeeze passed the American people a government power grab that the majority did not and still do not want!-affirmativediversity

    You realize the republicans REPEATEDLY used the -same- tactic when they were in the white house,right?

    The 2001 and 2003 bush tax cuts that added trillions to the debt? BOTH passed using Reconciliation.

    Ditto their 2005 and 2006 tax bills.

    So they shove through stuff when they can't get 60 -4- times in 5 years and that's ok... but Obama did it once and it's NOT?

    Again- you don't care about the ISSUE.

    You just care about being mad at Obama

    The last guy vacationed at his own home...how many times has Obama "vacationed in Chicago at his own home"?

    Let me answer that for you...I think he's spent one weekend at his actual home in Chicago...he thinks nothing of taking "golfing weekends in Florida"...or "separate vacations for him and his wife"...he flies all over for nonsense...absolute nonsense.

    I wonder...is Kay Hagan going to be in Charlotte to greet him...I doubt it...she's trying her hardest to get as far away from him as possible...what do you think of that?

    athiestswillruleinhell, I guess you didn't read my post, Bush created many Public Sector jobs, under Obama there are now few Public Sector jobs than when he took office. As for the health care law, it passed with 60 Senate votes, it only requires 51, but since Republicans decided to filibuster, 60 were needed, this is a shame because some Senators did use their leverage to get special provisions put in. A better law could have been passed with some Republican support. per wildervb

    You just make stuff up as you go along...

    I'm sure everyone will really enjoy all the NEW TAXES and government interference in the health care!!!!!!!!!

    I wish he would stay out of NC. He is the most unqualified person to ever hold the office of POTUS!!!

    Why can't he just stay home and stop wasting taxpayer money flying all over the country just to stand up and tell more of his lies.

    It's because just like all the other issues, you don't CARE about the ISSUE... you just care about being mad at Obama.
