The President of the United States is running for the presidency of the United States. To that end, he is accepting donations to his campaign from his liberal supporters, those down-to-earth huddled masses who include the poor, the downtrodden, the working men and women and the unemployed on welfare, all those hating Mitt Romney because he's not only rich, but too rich.
Before you mail in your check to Obama's re-election campaign, consider this: In order to continue to lead his flock, he will travel the country making more of those (empty) promises in more of those erudite speeches written by twenty-something Harvard grads. In order to shake hands with farmers and eat lobster with fishermen, stopping at Town Halls along the way to kiss babies and thrill women with a hug, he will fly in luxury, at a cost of $179,750 per hour, aboard Air Force One. (Talk about pain at the pump!) That cost is paid for partly by those donations to his campaign; the rest is paid by our taxes.
With 4,000 square feet of space on three levels, a private suite with an office, conference room and bath, a medical suite that can serve as an operating room and a kitchen that can provide food for 100, the accommodations are certainly comfy enough for Our Fearless Leader. This is not coach. Did I mention there were two planes; the decoy of course, in case some wacko thinks this extravagance is just plain wrong in today's poor economy.
