When You Elect A Chicago Pol President He Is His Own Bagman
An AP story today said, "The same states that Obama targeted to win the White House are seeing an awful lot of the president, Vice President Joe Biden and top Cabinet officials. Only this year, the taxpayers are footing the multimillion-dollar tab for the trips, and Obama officials are delivering wheelbarrows of economic stimulus money - also compliments of taxpayers.
"An Associated Press review of administration travel records shows that three of every four official trips Obama and his key lieutenants made in his first seven months in office were to the 28 states Obama won. Add trips to Missouri and Montana - both of which Obama narrowly lost - and almost 80 percent of the administration's official domestic travel has been concentrated in states likely to be key to Obama's re-election effort in 2012."
So, basically Obama is paying off campaign debts with misappropriated taxpayer money. And the taxpayers are forced to also pay his unbelievably high travel bills. All while he spends his time and energy not doing the job he was elected to do. He has visited just about every Democrat hack in the country but our soldiers in harms way have gotten little love from him and he has paid little attention to their mission and its needs. Obama has no respect for the US and is doing everything he can to turn us into a banana republic.
