    Some facts on spending, Clinton's last budget was 1.8 trillion, Bush II last budget was 3.5 Trillion, Obama's budget for 2011 was 3.6 Trillion. BUSH ALMOST DOUBLED THE FEDERAL BUDGET. OBAMA'S INCREASE IN SPENDING IS THE LOWEST SINCE THE 1950'S. republicans

    Just wondering to those of you talking about money being spent here. What about Romney? He is spending way more money, why aren't you mad at that & he has a ton of security and police protecting him as well. And he should, but if you are going to be mad about Obama why aren't you mad at Romney too?

    actually these are free; you don't need "big bucks", and in fact he does speak for free.

    Is he bringing his terrorist advisor ( the Muslim Brotherhoods), the one who told all that there is no such thing as a radical Muslims terrorist?

    chick-fil-A. the chairman is free to speak his mind under the 1st amendment and i am free to not spend my money at his establishment under the 1st amendment! as far as those people showing up to support their view yesterday and causing a traffic jam good for you but they should pay for the added police who probably were on overtime.

        Right on Kevin! Go get those Republicans and while you're at it, let's throw in some blame Bush rhetoric. Let's see; 1.2 trillion versus over 4 trillion, 41 months of unemployment above 8% and more class warfare rhetoric brought to us under the banner of "transparency". Simply stated, Obummer's record stinks and that is why he can not run on it.

      Congress is actually doing all of that spending; President Obama doesn't get to write the checks without their permission. Quit blaming the President and start looking at those 1% businesses that do not pay much in taxes as it is, didn't pay anything back after their bail out by then President G.W. Bush and follow the actual money. The money does not reside in the White House.
