As VP, Biden Has Been Flying To Delaware on the Weekends
White House Dossier ^ | 3/23/13 | Keith Koffler

Posted on 03/24/2013 9:45:42 AM PDT by Nachum

Vice President Biden has been flying home to Wilmington, Delaware most weekends at enormous expense to taxpayers, even though he has an exclusive government-provided residence in Washington.

Biden himself acknowledged the flights during recent remarks to the National Association of Attorneys General, noting that the sequester would force him to temporarily alter his expensive habit and use the train instead.

According to reports, Biden generally uses Air Force Two to get to Wilmington.

The cost of flying Air Force Two, a military version of the Boeing 757-200, amounts to about $8,800 per hour, according to the most recent federal data.

I imagine Rimshot Joe wants to make sure everyone in Delaware buys a shotgun before the Obama regime's Nazi style "gun control" kicks in.

Hey joe - I’ve got a better idea that taking the train. Just stay home and see if anyone notices your absence.

Here’s the sad thing. If you left out of DC on a Friday at 3PM...it’d take around 80 minutes to get to his house there. For the VP...he has to take a car out to Andrews...sit on the tarmac for twenty to thirty minutes before take-off, land at Delaware, and then drive to his home. Figure it’s two hours for all of this to happen.

Sounds to me like some Secret Service guys ought to be fired. Alternate between Amtrak and driving the black SUV out to Delaware, or order Joe to just stay around DC like the other folks on weekends.

They are your betters. You expect them to show some restraint when it comes to their selves? They know more than you and are sooooo important. Shut up and pay your taxes.

Have you seen the little piggies
Crawling in the dirt
And for all the little piggies
Life is getting worse
Always having dirt to play around in.

Have you seen the bigger piggies
In their starched white shirts
You will find the bigger piggies
Stirring up the dirt

These maroons don't even have the discipline to hold back on their own excesses for a month or two to make their "Sequester Scam" look somewhat real.

What's next?

Maybe a taxpayer paid 'round-the-world Boeing 747 tour for Big Moosie and a few hundred of her closest friends.

What A Maroon !

I always wonder what biteme would look like if we the tax slaves hadn’t paid for his hair plugs, the veneers on his teeth, and his expensive clothes. I suppose he’d look like an old, bald, snaggle-toothed libtard corruptocrat from Delaware.

joe, your looks don’t change what you are inside.

“That would amount to a roundtrip cost to taxpayers of about $13,200.”

Who uses a 757 to fly a hundred miles? You’d scarcely get above pattern altitude, for pity sake. Our royalty are completely out of control!

That 13 grand for ONE weekend would provide my wife and me a vacation of a life time, one for which we’ve worked a lifetime but will never see. Just for comparison, I make 19,000 a year from Soc Sec and they call that an “entitlement”. That dimwit Biden would run out of fuel half way home on his second trip. Wouldn’t that be a shame?

The constant hypocrisy is cause for mass resentment regardless of party affiliation. The Government needs more revenue, people need to pay their fair share, blah blah blah. Yet these Marie Anotinette Democrats keep on with their extravagant spending, parties and vacations. Pigs. Ptuh!

It is about a 2 1/2 hour drive from Dee Cee to Wilmington.

He could do that if he was concerned about the taxpayer’s money.

He really could.

Where’s the Delaware and national press corps on this?

These people have a strange sense of entitlements. You have worked for that social security money, you earned it! But to them, it is an “entitlement.” Yet they literally waste billions on spending for themselves because they are “entitled” to. Sauropod expresses it well. I too despise these people.

And yet another fine example of the left handing ammo to the right, and the right will do NOTHING with it.

I swear that the left is testing the boundries of what will be un-noticed. This is a perfect example. The media should be un in arms about this type of stoopid spending.

It takes a bit over that for the commuters around here to get home from work on a good day. The average joe has to work until 5 pm. He shouldn't be better than the working stiffs who foot his bills.

Just sit in the back seat and take a nap.
