Why do they want to pay from their own pockets when the Government spends for the same?What do they want to prove now? They say that at this point of crisis they dont want to use the taxpayer funds & even they dont want to accept donations.What are they upto? Have you seen any other politician with this kinda intention?

I believe for all new precidents, the white house needs some sort of refurbishing. It seems to be another news exaggerated by the media, following the first lady gardening. For the recent G20 in London, he was one of the luxuries, with a large number of assistants from his home. As an contrast, the Brazilian seemed to be much frugal, in a way equally unbelievable.

Solicited or not, Obama is really drawing attention and will continue to do so. I guess let's not just give too much color to everything he does if we want to take him out of the newspapers.
