This isn't news. I guarantee you that Obama, Bush, Clinton, and right on down the line—regardless of what party they belong to—have spent more money on single day trips than anyone could possibly imagine.
If you were pointing out some sort of significant, clearly wasteful spending, it'd be one thing, because no one with a brain would argue that there is PLENTY of wasteful spending in the US government. But, it's this "GOTCHYA!!" partisan, disgusting fluff nonsense that has destroyed American politics. I can literally taste the vitriol and bitterness in all of your words. When you're only interested in finding fault, guess what you find? This campaign season made one thing clear: It's way easier to criticize the actions, words, and policies of someone already in the job (not talking about Obama specifically) than it is to actually propose workable, actionable solutions to problems. Why did the Dems murder the Republicans in '08? Because people were pissed. Same thing happened today. Whenever people are pissed, the controlling party is dumped. It's all cyclical, and for those blaming Obama for much of the issues we face today, you're morons. Policies and legislation more than 50 years old, are STILL having very real and tangible effects on our lives today. Government doesn't happen over night, and that makes it nearly impossible to accurately characterize the performance of a president.
It's pro wrestling, it's nascar, it's a fucking joke. Stop taking Beck's or Olberman's rhetoric as fucking gospel, and understand that the truth is always in the middle.
The president isn't maniacally laughing burning your tax dollars to light a crack pipe. Wake the fuck up.
Intelligent, reasonable discourse is great...and essential.
This bullshit is killing us.
LOOK AT THE SOURCE!! An anonymous Indian police official? So....because some fucking rube claims that the Indian State Police is more than capable of protecting Obama, we're like sweet.....sounds good...?
In short, grow the fuck up, actually read, and don't tout what you heard some fucking political commentator (who have more in common with Howard Stern than Journalists) say as the truth.
P.S. I'm not a Democrat, and I voted for Bush his first term, so fuck off with whatever dismissive comment you were about to make about my political views.
Having fun at skiing's expense since '09.
