    I heard the fuel cost of flying the Messiah and his wife (in separate planes) to Copenhagen was $1.5 million.

    That was just the cost of flying AIR FORCE ONE. Michelle took an Air Force 757 that burns approximately 1200 gallons an hour. The cost quoted didn't count the many support aircraft that traveled with Air Force One or what ever traveled with Michelle and Oprah. Chicago isn't going to pay this bill, we will.

    About half as much as Al Gore wastes traveling around giving speeches on the catastrophic effect of Americans burning fossil fuels. I think it's fitting for the all God like ruler of the free world to have a MAJOR disappointment. The most he should have done was have a delegation if you will of his wife and Joe Biden and since this was a major deal to the Mayor of Chicago he should have gone. The President could have
    recorded a message to be played at the event. I don't think it was necessary for him to go not with all that's going on right now.

    Wonder how much Bush wasted sitting for four days on his ass at the Chinese Olympics?

    Hope you guys were screaming and in a panic then like you are now.

    I heard he planted a tree on the WH lawn to offset his ginormous footprint. The dog wee-weed on it.

    How many trips did Bush take to Crawford for vacation?

    At least Obama was trying to do something for the country.

    More nothingness from the right.

    Go Alan Grayson.:lol:
