President Barack Obama will fly over 9 hours tomorrow, round-trip from Washington, D.C. to Las Vegas, Nevada, just to deliver a speech on immigration, according to the president's White House schedule. With Air Force One estimated to cost $182,000 per hour in flight, Obama's trip--that is, only his travel to and from Vegas--will cost taxpayers over $1.6 million.
Obama has no other public events scheduled in Las Vegas but his immigration speech.
"In the morning, the President will depart the White House en route Las Vegas, Nevada. The departure from the South Lawn and the arrival at McCarran International Airport are open press," the president's schedule reads.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The real gripper here in Las Vegas is that his speech will be delivered in a Grade School to a bunch of kids. Heaven Help us, our air port and traffic will be tied up for hours to speak to a bunch of 5th graders. Have Mercy,
The Senate gang of 8 have pretty much dictated what Obama can say.
The question is : why does Obama spend so much time making speeches/campaigning in LV?
It can’t all be about grooming the hospitality workers unions.
Thank goodness we now have an Emperor
who no longer values money while we ,
the serfs , have to balance a negative budget .
They must have a good golf course in Las Vegas !
His handler Valerie says he’ll be doing more of that this term.

Fairer?................What the hell is going on. I actually spent years 14 to 21 working on the farm. I started picking strawberries right next to mexican and vietnamese for a quarter a box. I eventually became asst farm manager graduated Purdue and went on to fly.
It's doesn't get any more fair than that!
I started on my knees and I damn sure won't finish that way.
I so sick of this pretenders bull shit.
AF1 must have some great in-flight movies.
...... Stand back folks ..... this is what we know .... just stand back ... and see what wonders the fawning media will spin and print. There will be no criticism or strife .... just wonderful words and platitudes to lift this deified president up. To the world .... he is the ONE.
..... However.... this is a warning to all .... KNOW THIS.... it is up to US to prove otherwise!!!!!!!!!!
.....If we don't .... then this nation is lost...... forever.
Gank his credit line already!!!!!
Or pay his bill for him!
Maybe he should bring along PhonyCon Media like Karl Rove, Sean Hannity and Herman Cain....and they can all cheerlead Obama, Rubio, and all the other Amnesty Liberals
PRINT MORE MONEY - the slogan of the O Admin
I’m suprised he didn’t fly out there to give a speech on how Americans need to reduce their Carbon Footprint.
I know! Let’s put the Jobs Council on the flights with him! There should be room.
I wonder what the “cost per word” on this is? Is someone in the press going to analyze that for us, much like they did for Sarah Palin’s stint at Fox?
What’s with Vegas!?
Obama’s got some homing device that keeps returning him to mafia city. Wondering what is going on with that.
I’m surprised that the Sasquatch doesn’t fly on AF 2 to be there with him. Maybe have Bo on a separate flight to get there too. This MOFO makes me ill.
His supporters do not care what he ‘spends’ at our expense. They think we, the taxpayers, deserve to be fleeced. After all, our money belongs to them (and HIM), even if they don’t work. That is what he says and he always speaks the truth, at least according to Big Media.
