    This is not the first town that Obama has stiffed for police costs....Aren't you libs the one telling me how those huge secret service costs are justified? Why don't you practice what you preach. Obama is stiffing a small Connecticut town for a poultry $14K. But when it comes to millions of tax dollars__ it's okay to waste those willie nillie.

    This is particularly painful to read about because on Drudge they had a report that $500,000 stimulus money was spent on ads for Obama on Olbermann and Maddow.

    Why would the DNC pay for it?

    And you know that "Obama" and the DNC aren't the same thing, right?

    Not to mention - Westport, CT is one of the richest towns in the country.

    Not exactly "Main Street".

    It says the DNC denied the bill for the Obama visit. I don't care how you want to cut it up.

    If you roll into a town and require extra security then why should you not pay for it? If the cost is too high then don't go to that town.

    Don't you know that the elite need not pay for anything?

    There is a simple solution to this. These towns need to REFUSE to provide any type of assistance to Obama when he rolls into town. He has a full Secret Service detail, what the fuck does he need additional local law enforcement for?

    Don't provide him an escort, don't provide him a motorcade, don't provide him one single fucking officer at the venue he is appearing.

    The man truly believes he is the most important human in mankind's history. Watch how fast this changes if cities refuse to provide him with anything.

    And again, why would the DNC pay for it?
