    The $840K spending on a 2010 GSA conference is Bush's fault, according to the Obama administration. You know the conference in which they spent $75 k on building a bike as part of a "team building activity" and $3.2 k on a mind reader and however much it was on commemorative coins in velvet boxs.

    The administration also argued Friday night that the cost of the Western Regional Conference increased sharply under the Bush White House -- from $93,000 in 2004 to $323,855 in 2006 to $655,025 in 2008, then $840,616 in 2010, or just 28 percent under Obama.

    For whatever reason, are all administrations locked into this same 'package'?
    Do the HAVE to go there every year?
    Can't they choose someplace cheaper?
