    Given the financial situation this country is in, every event that uses government funds should be required to list the cost. If we can't afford WH tours for the children in this country we surely can't afford to spend governmnet money on events like this.

      When are Republicans going to realize that they lost the election and will for the decade if they don't stop spewing lies and hatred.

        You realize the GOP won the House, right?

    That day sounds extraordinarily difficult for Obama, but for the ordinary working American it should only take about 2 hours.

      That sounds extraordinary Marie, considering you are a paid Republican troll.

    Sorry – Obama is on a 7 day golf trip – so not much happening at the White House to report

      When are Tea baggers going to realize that the most Americans don't believe your lies. This guy have worked to get us out of the greatest recession since the depression. We are grateful that we still have jobs and the stock market is back to record levels.

    When is the President going to present a balanced budget? It's been four years that the country has been operating without a budget and spending more than it is taking in. No business nor household could sustain this without going out of business.

    • steveo

      The first Democratic budget in 4 years is supposed to come out soon. It will be late (according to the law) and nowhere close to being balanced!

      He will once the Republicans in Congress stop obstructing government. When is Republican congress going to propose we close tax loopholes for offshore accounts, hedge funds etc...

      • steveo

        No he won't! As long as the chant is "we don't have a spending problem", no he won't.

        Hey Lionel. So much for a balanced budget under Obama, huh? Why did I get this from a conservative website? The liberal sites, for some reason are not talking about it! This came from the OMB, they won't lie would they? CHECK OUT THE LAST LINE AND WAKE UP TO REALITY!

        This came fro Breitbart.com. Pooh-pooh this if you want to but only as long as you can quote budget info from a liberal site! Good luck!

        "The White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released figures with President Barack Obama’s 2014 budget that reveal he will become the first president in U.S. history to spend $4 trillion in a single year. In fiscal 2016, the OMB says Obama will spent $4.0898 trillion and $4.2474 trillion in fiscal 2017. Obama will vacate the Office of President four months into fiscal 2017 on January 20, 2017.

        OMB projections indicate the budget will never balance under Obama’s budget plan

        You rejected her in 2008. Now you will be "head over hills" in 2016? I don't think so!

        Head over heels!

    • really

      And what makes you think that they are not? Let me guess, a report published by the Washington Free Beacon. A report that does not include nearly enough information to draw any conclusions from. For your information, White House salaries, and all federal salarlies are set by the Office of Personnel Managmenet, not the President. But go ahead, continue spewing your ignorance

      Didn't Obama lambast Romney over Social Security during the election season last year? So now the "budget (which is late and hated by his own party) is gonna cut into grandma's check. Priceless! Why are the liberal posters now silent?

      Republicans slams Obama for not producing a budget. Now they slam him for producing a budget. Can't get anywhere with those Repubs. Look, Americans and especially minorities are not going to forget how Republicans have acted when Obama was president. Believe me, they will be toast for a long time to come.

        "Republicans slams Obama for not producing a budget"
        What do you expect? This is the FIRST budget in how long? AND it was late AND it balanced NOTHING AND it steals from grandma!

        "Now they slam him for producing a budget"
        One more time, This attempts to raise taxes AGAIN, when there was just a tax increase this year already! It STEALS from Grandma,, It balances NOTHING!. The ONLY thing that will be toast is...THIS COUNTRY, if this administration keeps up like this.

        You seem to forget to mention, how even the DEM hate this budget, Why would you fail to mention that?

    Why doesn't FOX "allow" comments?.... Isn't their mission statement "WE REPORT YOU DECIDE?"...and then there is no way to voice what exactly it is you decide...
