President Obama spent $516,000 of taxpayers’ money on “Prom Week” video game

On September 22, 2008, candidate Obama said:

“I am not a Democrat who believes that we can or should defend every government program just because it’s there… We will fire government managers who aren’t getting results, we will cut funding for programs that are wasting your money and we will use technology and lessons from the private sector to improve efficiency across every level of government… The only way we can do all this without leaving our children with an even larger debt is if Washington starts taking responsibility for every dime that it spends.”

However, after he won the election, President Obama spent $516,000 of taxpayers’ money on a video game called “Prom Week.”

I guess this means that based on his own words, he doesn’t consider this spending to be “wasteful.”

This is one of the reasons why he wants to raise taxes?

I “hope” we “change” the person who is President in the upcoming election.

A video game that costs $500,000 dollars? There has to be more to it than that.

What is “Prom Week”??

How much liquor and sex does it glorify for kids??

...............

BTW, Venturer some games can cost many millions to develop but there is no good reason for taxpayers to pay for any of it.

What more is there to know? It’s an entry from Coburns “Waste Book”. There’s a link to the book in the original article.

Under the heading of “Wasteful govt. spending” ...
All the local tv stations were chorteling about the govt. provided urinal cakes which audibly cautioned against drunk driving that had been stolen from local drinking establishments.
Maybe they will be returned w/a picture of Obama for a target?
Just wondering...
