    “Every year (taxpayers in England) have to spend $57.8 million for the first family of Great Britain to make sure that everything’s maintained and everything is taken care of and their security and everything else, $57.8 million. And the people in England are upset about it,” Glenn explained this morning.

    “How much did we pay our royal family? How much did it take to maintain our royal family, the Obamas, just last year? Now, this is really interesting, especially as we come up for another vacation for the Obamas. This one is going to cost us $4 million. This vacation in Hawaii for Christmas is going to cost you $4 million. How much did we spend last year? Remember, the royal family cost $57.8 million. Would you be stunned if I told you it was $50 million? Would you be ‑‑ would you be bowled over if it was $100 million? How much do we spend? The total last year, a little higher than $57.8 million.”

    So what was it? $60 million? No. $100 million? Nope. $250 million? Not even close.

    The answer: $1.4 billion

    If the Obama's cared the slightest fuck'n bit about anyone (other than themselves), they would stop the extravagant vacations and make sure that money either went to paying down the debt or to the people who desperately need it the most.

    But lets be honest, an endless bank account and an opulent life style is one of the biggest reasons Obama wanted to sit in the White House.

    And how much did Bush or Eisenhower cost us in present day dollars. Eisenhower was worth every penny and then some.

    This really sums up the Obama's - ironic since they love everything Soviet and are all too willing to bow to the Soviets:

    Wow, the source is Glenn Beck. You must be one of a dozen people who think he's sane.

    He's black. He's a Democrat. Accept it and move on. His Majesty has no faults and can do no wrong.

    Just forget the last four years and ignore the next four. Don't worry. Be happy.

    Get back to happy. Retreat to that warm place with no memory. :beer:

    Saying Glenn Beck is sane is like saying Bill Maher is sane.
    Or Rush Limbaugh. Or Chris Matthews.
    They're all the same. They're all crazy.

    (I think I just committed partisan heresy by saying that Bill and Glenn are the same.)
