Taxpayers Foot Heavy Bill for Obama Fundraising Trips

But sandwiched between political appearances, Obama squeezed in some quick public remarks on energy, ironically before burning fuel to Los Angeles, at Nevada’s Nellis Air Force Base. It was a key stop, because it gives the entire trip an air of official legitimacy and allows the White House to write off part of the trip under rules governing travel, said Pete Sepp, vice president for policy and communications at the National Taxpayers Union. 

Barack Obmaa is traveling the country to raise money and strengthen the Democratic Party and taxpayers are picking up the tab.

Where’s the media outrage? Sarah Palin gets criticized for traveling to Evansville (funded by her own PAC) to address a pro-life assembly. Perhaps, if she were addressing agroup of America-hating leftists, the media would approve.

    We’ve never had a President who stayed in campaign mode…ever. Then again, since he started campaigning for the Presidency the INSTANT he was elected to the Senate, why should we be surpised?? (hint: we’re not)
