A lot of people have been complaining about Obama vacationing in Hawaii. You have to remember Reagan vacationed at his ranch in California. George Bush I stayed at his mansion in Kennebunkport, Maine. And George Bush II stayed at his ranch in Texas.
If Obama stayed at his own home in Chicago, the Secret Service would have to bring in the National Guard to put the whole neighborhood on lock down. He’d probably be safer in Baghdad than Chicago. I’m sure they’re saving us a ton of money flying to Hawaii instead.
