    It's the principle. I realize that is a foreign concept to many libs. Er, excuse me, "centrists".

    First ladies and their husbands have often had differing traveling schedules, especially when it comes to fundraising and the like. Expecting one of them to lag behind in a city where they have no events scheduled to cater to your principles is political pettiness and nothing more

    So now we're calling the president of the United States and the first lady "welfare queens." Way to keep it classy.

    Flush this low-grade hackery to where it belongs.

    In my mind, it's not so much the amount that's being spent, although that's also a consideration, it's the attitude and seemingly nonsensical decisions with which it's being spent.

    It leaves me wondering if it's particular to this administration or a general problem with the federal government, or government in general.

    I'm starting to believe the latter.

    This entire thread is depressingly petty.

    If someone can prove that the Obama's are using government resources for personal gain, fine - do it.

    If someone can prove that GW Bush's $1.3 million cost to the government in 2012 contained any personal benefit to the former President, fine - do it.

    You've got five living Presidents and unlike many countries you greatly honour the service of these Presidents to their country by providing them with bare minimums of supports while they continue to serve the country even while out of office.

    Like I said, foreign concept. Thanks for the verification, not that it was needed.

    What style is your home made beer? I'm having a Sierra Nevada Beer Camp 2015 Hoppy Lager, as we speak. Maybe we can find common ground after all.

    As intended. How many times have you heard liberals snivel that Obama is the most fiscally conservative president? Does taking two planes to LA on the same day for appear on TV programs sound like guy/couple who gives a damn about being responsible with other peoples money?
    The Gruber-crat is strong in this one!

    Yeah, at the very least it's called, being out of touch. It's sad when it is considered "petty" to gripe about a mere $28,000 per hour.
