I'm contesting the absurd claim in the OP title is all. My standards is there is no need for these visits to far flung talk show filming, or for campaigning. It might not get the audience riled up, but he can appear on a damn tv screen from washington
But he has a right to travel for personal reasons as well, whether it's to see a dying grandma or go on vacation, and for security and job performance, it's gonna be on air force one. Bush II did it dozens of times
Either way, i won't throw a goddamn fit about it and pretend it's responsible for the national debt
Prepare For Traffic During President Obama Visit To Philadelphia « CBS Philly. He flies to our airport and then motorcades wherever he needs to be. It isn't just the President, but the First Lady and the Vice-President and even the Second Lady. If they are going to the same city then they can damn well travel on the same plane when it is on the tax payer dime. Would they use two planes if they were picking up the tab? We know the answer to that.
It's like how i'd handle the birth certificate racist horse**** - dress up in a traditional kenyan outfit and have my portrait painted and hang it next to washington
And that's all i care to say unless it's to make fun of the overreactions
The Gruber-crat is strong in this one!
