    .......The head of the General Services Administration resigned from her post Monday, and two other officials were fired amid an investigation into excessive spending at a 2010 training conference that featured a clown, a comedian and mindreader, Federal News Radio reports.
    The resignations come as the agency's inspector general plans to release an extended study of the October 2011 conference at a luxury hotel near Las Vegas, which cost $835,000 for the 300 employees who attended.

    Expenses included $147,000 in airfare and lodging for six planning trips for the organizers, the Post reports.

    Jack Lew, the White House chief of staff and former director of the Office of Management and Budget, said President Barack Obama was "outraged" by the reported spending, according to Federal News Radio.

    "When the White House was informed of the inspector general's findings, we acted quickly to determine who was responsible for such a gross misuse of taxpayer dollars," Lew says in a statement. "The President was informed before his trip to South Korea, and he was outraged by the excessive spending, questionable dealings with contractors and disregard for taxpayer dollars."

    MEANTIME...
    First lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha are visiting Las Vegas after stopping in South Dakota on a family trip.

    A spokeswoman for McCarran International Airport confirmed that the first lady was expected to arrive in Las Vegas Wednesday night. The visit wasn't expected to affect flight operations.
    I've totally lost count of how many vacations we've paid for Michelle & the girls. As of December, Michelle spent $10 million on HER ...

    I hear a clown, comedian, and a mindreader will greet and entertain the 'Purple Gumby' and her kids when they land at McCarron.

    There is a heavy southwind blowing in Vegas today.
    Looks like a turbulent approach.

    Yep...if one phrase alone can sum up the Right wing attitude towards our current President is "Damn him if he does, Damn him if he doesn't".

    That phrase needs to be changed to "Damn him if he doesn't. (period!)"
    Cause Obie DOES very little but send us into the direction of European type socialism.
    My gas bill tells me so. :D

    DAMN HIM BOTH WAYS!

    You idiots evidently HAVE no problem with OUR tax money funding his wife's and his kids 12 classmates jaunts around the world AT TAXPAYERs expense!

    Seriously there should be a law that states NO president or his family are allowed to travel on taxpayers expenses i.e. vacations!

    Really how many of you idiot Obama supporters why don't you ask YOUR employer to pay for YOU and your family's flights, hotels food for YOUR vacations?
    Why is Obama and his family different from US HIS employer?

    Doesn't Obama and family get money from taxpayers?
    Taxes pay Obama et.al. total vacation expenses really is that fair?

    Regardless it's our money and at least he got rid of the bunch, as for the president and his family it's a case of SOP, they simply are immune to the hardships that face the nation, sad is it not!

    It is SAD that those people that voted for Obama could NOT see what a hypocrite he is/was! When will people learn Obama TALKS the TALK but NEVER Walks the WALK!
    I mean this is a guy every time he salutes the military I almost PUKE because I have his words burned into my mind..."air-raiding villages, killing civilians"! Obama spewed this words as a Senator and those words were used by enemies of the US military to recruit more killers of US troops ... all words of encouragment and validation to the terrorist that their planting bombs on kids that blew themselves up when US troops handed out candy! HOW totally disgusting and sickening to see Obama salute these troops that were subject to be killed by terrorists who used Obama's words to recruit!
