    I can't say whether it is true or not
    What I can say is the president doesn't arrange his own security, that is done by the Secret Service. Is there more presidential security in this post 9-11 world? You bet your ass.
    So the question becomes, should the President of the United States hunker down in the White House because every time he moves it costs money? We know the answer for the previous White House inhabitant. He never hesitated to take a trip to Crawford Texas or anywhere else.

    I had not considered that the secret service does arrange the details. Then again if I knew that a dinner alone was going to cost so much I'd try to consider that before making those minor trips for my own pleasure when I know money is tight, even when it is my money. No I don't think that he should hunker down at the WH but I do think when spending or the cost in another's money I would think twice before being frivolous about it. Do presidents normally go out on these out to dinner with the wife trips that cost the public so much? Do congress members do the same at the public's expense?

    i'm trying to figure out why i should care.

    i don't like some of his policies and a lot of his supporters are koolaid infused, but in the grand scheme of things, taking his wife out to dinner isn't even a blip on the screen.

    Personally, I don't know whether the e mail is factual or not.

    It does sound like a government cluster fuck and IMO is probably par for the course. When it comes to waste and inefficiency, the government is second to none.

    That said, if I were president or an elected official of any level, I certainly would be more conscientious of how I spent the taxpayers' money.
