Although most people believe that President Obama should have gone to the Nelson Mandela Memorial, they had no idea that every time he goes overseas, even for a vacation, it costs taxpayers millions of dollars.
Everyone is entitled to take vacations but a million to shop in Paris, play golf, go to Martha's Vineyard? Most say that is far too much for ANY President.
I bet with some trying, a lot of official business trips could be cut out. Let them come to see us more often. Offer them a beer.
Of course, most leaders do not bring 50 personal guards and two airplanes.
Maybe if we gave the Dems in congress a list of spending cuts for a future GOP President or vice versa, it wouldn't come up to half of what we are spending now.
I say we need a CPA for President, or at least, as a Vice President.
Besides, what does President Obama learn from these overseas leaders that he hasn't already been told by our Secret Service and their bugging devices?
I mean, what are bugging devices for if not to see what they really think. All politicians can say anything. But the bugs tell it as it is!
This is George Babbet for $tar$
