He ain't worried about balancing no damn budget. Not at all.










As President Obama cruises through the Midwest the next three days, he'll be riding in two buses -- sleek and black, with dark-tinted windows -- that cost $1.1 million, the Associated Press reports. A Secret Service spokesman explained that the agency has to protect politicians riding in buses all the time anyway, and it plans on using the buses for future candidates and officials.

The White House says Obama will spend the roadtrip listening to voters vent their frustration with Washington and talk about their economic struggles. The full length of the bus:

Well first there's this:

It's funny Willow. You complain about a $1.1 million bus but nothing about the defense budget.

Well, let's see... operating Air Force One costs between $68k-$181k/hour, depending on the source. so $1.1M for a bus that can be re-used is quite the frugal approach.

So your saying no matter what Obama does its ok with you.. He can piss money away left and right and its AOK. even though we are flat broke. He is the leader of our country he should set the tone for the nation to me he is flaunting he can do this. Like all these expensive vacations. If you have a problem with defense spending fine but this is apple and oranges right now. Our country is in the crapper and every time you turn around he finds new ways to spend our tax dollars.

Why travel out there at all?

To regurgitate more of the same lies over and over again? Seems redundant to me......

Every president has campaigned on the public dime during their bid for a second term.

This is just more phoney outrage from conservative media.

Just like how outraged cry baby conservatives are wailing in drama because Biden said the Tea Party is acting like terrorists in the fight over raising the nation’s debt limit. You should just hear Rush whine...."he said we take hostages!!!"...."he said we're the enemy!!!!"...."he said we're dangerous!!!!" How thin skinned is that?

I never said anything like that all. That's all projection on your part. I'm simply pointing out that two buses that cost $1.1 million that the secret service is advocating in order to protect the President and future politicians is chump change.

In reality, this is just another Anti-Obama thread where people who actually don't care about cutting the deficit and debt will bitch that President Obama is spending too much money.
