Probably a dumb question but...O hasn't been in his office "governing" for weeks. Who the heck is paying for all this travel on AF1, local and federal security, lodging etc etc for all this politicking he's doing for the DEMS - with whom we rabidly disagree? If it's the taxpayers not the DNC then we are being suckered......and now MO is in on it - on our dime as well????
Well ... guess what it’s we the Tax Payers that are footing the bill.
We are. It is a ‘perk’ of the sitting president that should be eliminated. But they all do it thanks to our ignorance.
And when we get the House,we need to investigate this and throw it back in their faces.
Three guesses as to who’s paying.
This freak spent 90% of his time as a “senator” campaigning. Why would anyone think he’d do differently as president?
Tax Payers... Us
VOTE DGNOME 2012
Think of all the extra fuel needed if Moochelle rides along.
And the people who missed getting to work because the freeways of LA were jammed? Or reimburses them on their loss, and airlines who had to re route passengers.
And where are all the envirowackos protesting all the greenhouse gasses that AF 1, Marine 1 and all the backup aircraft and vehicles pump into the atmosphere?
He said this in response to the President charging that the Chamber of Commerce was using foreign money to finance Republican's, Conservative's and Tea Partier's campaigns. Since they can assert anything they want, Rush figures he can assert anything he wants... and so it goes!!!
And stress from wing loading on the airframe.
I just wish someone in the GOP would seriously and publicly challenge this guy on something! He’s doing so much that is unconstitutional and nobody ever calls him on it. Can’t investigations/hearings/meetings be held to publicize his illegal activities? He’s kept so well insulated with only Gibbs and his other mouthpieces doing his talking that he never has to face anyone himself.
What they normally do is to schedule some brief ‘official activity’ on the trip, so the taxpayer picks up most of the cost. They schedule the political activity as ‘side trips’, and the DNC has to pick up some of the costs. Presidential security, of course, is on the taxpayers. This is all figured out by a bunch of smart accountants and lawyers.
I have been wondering the same thing myself and also why hasn’t this been addressed on talk radio or FOX. Bush would have been hammered for doing this for Republicans.
To have hearings you must first control the house, 12 days left......tick, tock.
Awwwww, you know ol’ barry...he’s probably using his Nobel Prize money for all this...what a trooper..../sarcasm.
Right you are.
BTW, haven’t seen many comments from you lately...they’re always good, so maybe I have just missed them.
