No one spends money like Barack Obama. He does not care what the tax payers think or even what happens to them.
He has just done it again.
What has he done?
He has gone off fundraising again, sticking the taxpayers with the tab.
In other words, we the people are paying for the privilege of this clown running for reelection.
How is that happening?
Yesterday Barack Obama went to two star studded fundraisers in New York. Ordinarily if the President goes to a strictly political event, the campaign is on the hook for at least some of the costs of the trip.
But surprise, Obama threw in an amazingly brief trip to the World Trade Center site and suddenly it is an official trip and the taxpayers are stuck with the tab.
Would it be snide to mention yesterday was Flag Day and remind everyone of Michelle Obama’s “All of this for a flag,” comment at the 9/11 ten year anniversary ceremony?
Obama has mastered what Bill Clinton started; the perpetual campaign.
Obama has already done over 150 fundraisers. Just to put that in perspective, that is more than the last six Presidents, COMBINED.
Presidents have used this loophole in the past. George W. Bush did it. Bill Clinton did it before him. None of them have used it to the extent or the same audacity as Barack Obama.
America is broke. Millions of Americans are out of work and millions more fear losing their jobs. Of course, none of this bothers King Barry or Queen Michelle.
After all, the little people just exist to pay taxes so the Obamas can go on vacation.
Between fundraisers, vacations, golf games and blaming Bush, it is a wonder that Obama has time to govern.
Actually, we probably should not complain. If Obama spent more time on the job, there is no telling how much more damage he would be doing to America.
While the Republicans are already measuring Mitt Romney for his Air Force One jacket, there is a serious issue here they need to address.
The taxpayers should not be forced to foot the bill for any President’s reelection campaign.
We need a simply change in the law.
The President must fly on Air Force One and he must be protected. Okay, those are givens. The law needs to say instead of allowing the President to lump one minor public event in with half a dozen political events and sticking the taxpayers with the bill, the procedure must be changed to forcing the campaigns to pick up a pro-rata share of the cost.
If the President goes on the road and spends one hour at an official event and nine hours at political events, then the campaign needs to pick up half the cost. If the President divides his time evenly between campaign and official appearances, then the campaign only has to take half the costs.
Both parties have used this system. Barack Obama has abused it. We cannot afford any more of Barack Obama’s spending and we certainly should not be forced to pay for his reelection campaign.
That good-for-nothing idiot ought to pay for all of the debt he's put America in,with all the money he can raise from the STUPID actors and actresses,that shows how STUPID Hollywood is.
N O B A M A 2012 WAKE UP AMERICA.......WE DO NOT HAVE MONARCHY WITH KING AND QUEEN.
OURS IS A REPUBLIC.....OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE!! GOD BLESS THE USA!!
Corporations are not people... don't care what the supreme court says.
The founding fathers would never approve of the power that we have given over to corporations.
“I sincerely believe that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.” Jefferson
“Property monopolized or in possession of a few is a curse to mankind.” John Adams
Yes, Lucy... WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO WAKE UP!
Did you mean 1/10th for the 9 to 1 trip?
Yes, I'm sure that was the intent, but we all need a good proof reader.
Oops! You need a proofreader too :) The campaign would have to pick up 9/10.
The taxpayers will have one chance to "get even" with Obama, and that is on November 6th, when they can throw him out of OUR White House. One term and out the door.
Sometimes I think Obama wants to lose. He is just daring America to vote against him.
He is going out in style. Hollywood style.
I believe that Obama "has" accomplished the goal that the "puppet string pullers" intended him to do (Some on the Left & Some on the Right).
He engineered the "Shifting a Mortgage of $14Trillion from Wall Street to Main Street" !
We have talked about Progressives, Conservatives, Libertarians, Communists, Capitalists, Muslisms, Christians, Jews, Atheists, Homosexuals, Heterosexuals. But, what we have not talked about are "Powermongers"from all over the world that wish to have "Power over the Whole World" (Financially, Militarily, Morally).
Obama is the "Water Boy for The Big Boy". The "Big Boy" is hard to identify and Thys Really worries me !
Not hard to identify at all. Soros, Unions, the Socialist/Communist Party and to a lesser degree Buffett (because he has figured out a way to profit from it.)
What about the 12 International Banks that Control "The Federal Reserve System" ??
