HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Some Americans are bothered by President Barack Obama's decision to take a million-dollar vacation to Hawaii during these tough economic times.

A new website, Wasted In Hawaii: President Obama's Hawaiian Binge, now gives the public an opportunity to vent their frustration.

The website includes information on the cost of President Obama's trip as well as an interactive tool that allows users to send messages to his Twitter account.

"A leader is supposed to suffer with the people he serves, but Obama doesn't seem to understand that principle," website creator Tyler Ament said. "He could go to Camp David or his million-dollar home in Chicago and show solidarity with the rest of us who made sacrifices."
