this field trip/family vacation was well worth the $100 mm taxpayers'
Republicans..... Sour grapes that the POTUS traveled to another country. Oh my
goodness.. Never before in history...
I thought traveling to foreign countries to meet with world leaders was a job
requirement of the POTUS. I guess it only a job requirement for a
How much to the debt did this add? Obviously Democrats can't count or
don't care about wasted money, as long as it is wasted by Democrats.
Apparently the big reaction this generated is because the big scary black
President went to Africa, where there are other big scary black men as well.
We don't see this sort of reaction if a white President goes to Europe and
meets with other white men. And those who pull a huge dollar cost for the trip
out of the air (the idea that the trip cost taxpayers $100,000,000.00 is blatant
nonsense) never flinched when either of the Bushes traveled abroad on government
business. The costs of presidential travel is roughly the same regardless of
whether the President is Republican or Democrat, and regardless of whether he is
black or white.
Maybe we can get the President to 'fly over' on his way home, or while
on a campaign trip on the fourth, since the Air Force will not be permitted to
do so because of 'budget cuts'.
If I pay $10,000 per year in taxes, how long will it take me to pay for
BO's vacation? A- 100 yearsB- 1,000 yearsC- 10,000
years. I hope I can live that long.
