Who is paying for Obama’s trip?
Incredibly, President Obama is out in San Francisco fundraising!!!
Is it just me, or am I the only one who thinks a newly sworn in 2nd-term President should be, like… wellll… done with campaign fundraising for now?
Shouldn’t President Obama be directing his attention toward mending fences and forging the cross-party relationships necessary to fix this nation’s high unemployment rate and solve serious fiscal and economic problems? Or is that to much to ask? Apparently it is.
President Obama jets off to Denver yesterday to stump for gun control when a Rose Garden appearance is more appropriate.
For those not in the know, the DCCC bills itself “the official campaign arm of the Democrats in the House” and “is the only political committee in the country whose principal mission is to support Democratic House candidates every step of the way.”
For those interested in his remarks at the Nancy Pelosi fundraiser:

It is 12 hours round trip flight time for the President to take Air Force One from Washington DC to San Francisco. At $180,000/hr, it costs $2.16 million just to fly there. That is not counting all the other expenses involved when a President travels.
$2.16 million is 2 years and 4 months worth of canceled White House tours!
The question no reporter will ask:
If not taxpayers, then who is paying for this trip?
Americans are not all from Missouri, the “Show-Me” state, but we want to see FEC receipts!
