“Come FLY with me…” WHY NOT?

HERE is an article with the following text.  I have NO idea why FOX paired the text with the picture it did on its site so I’m not including it:

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama flew to Los Angeles on Thursday for TV appearances but took separate flights, collectively costing taxpayers at least $1 million.

The president went to appear live on comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night show on ABC, while the first lady went to Warner Bros.’ studios in nearby Burbank to tape an appearance on Ellen Degeneres’ popular daytime show that is scheduled to air on Monday.

Obama traveled on Air Force One, which reportedly costs taxpayers at least $200,000 per flight hour. So the price of his five-hour, coast-to-coast trip will be roughly $1 million.

The cost of an Air Force flight like the one the first lady took reportedly costs more than $28,000 an hour.

After appearing on “Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel,” the president attended a Democratic National Committee fundraiser, then left Friday morning for Phoenix to visit a veterans’ hospital before returning to Washington.

The first lady returned directly to Washington.
obama hypocrisy
Z:  Couldn’t she suck it up and spend two hours in Phoenix while the president does his public relations stop at a VA hospital because he was chastized for not going to one last time?   Two hours, Mrs. Obama……..would have saved us a LOT OF MONEY..  But, nobody knows but Conservatives, so what the heck………..YOU WIN AGAIN 😉
By the way, can’t they have recorded an interview with Kimmel over big screen?  And did Mrs. Obama have to spend a couple of hours with Ellen De Generis?  WHY?   I don’t begrudge this stuff of presidents too much, but THIS ticked me OFF.  YOU?

    lol Kid and they really do want to move to NYC when they are out of the WH. Because they are so hip and trendy and all.
    What I don’t like is how they feel the need to be out in the public eye all the time and not in a good way. How are we suposed to take them seriously when tey don’t act serious?

    If we get Hillary we are well and truly sunk. And up ’til now I thought the Peanut Man was the worst. To to give Rosalyn credit, she had a sewing machine, even brought it into the White House. This woman, I can’t bring myself to call her a ‘lady’, pays obscene amounts for ‘fashuns’ that frequently look like streetwalker specials.

    By the way, did the mutts go on this trip???

    I heard on Fox this a.m. that our Great Leader sent $350,000.00 over to Israel to defeat Bibi. I’ll bet that’s not as much as Mary ‘Louisiana Land Grant’ Landrieu spent in ‘walking around money’ in her last election, which, thankfully she lost.

    SilverLady…no worries: they’ve known about this Obama guy going to Israel now for a month or so; nobody’s doing anything about it and we have to start realizing anything against the Clintons is just a big waste of taxpayer money. Nothing sticks to them.
    I SO HOPE I AM WRONG…..

    And I SO HOPE BIBI WINS. God help us all if he doesn’t.

    Baysider, it’s ALL about white America, isn’t it….these people know nothing else. and
    Kid, I think that’s the reason………..

    I do believe a lot of Black Americans do NOT like this president, but we only hear from those who are rioting and screaming and demanding their free Obama phones (a friend of mine hadn’t ever heard of those until the other day when I told her….she had NO IDEA Obama’s done that!), and feeling SO PROTECTED by a Black president who:
    -has made Ferguson a more dangerous place to live’
    -taken good health care from so many people
    -is courting the Muslim Brotherhood
    -wants to rid Israel of a powerful leader and ally of ours
    -etc etc etc

    Mustang; if we can’t educate, people believe that can work.

    fredd….good one.

    Kid……..My hubby and I sang that every time we went up to my uncle’s house… 🙂

    Mal…don’t worry; we’ll tax the rich! Except then who’s going to HIRE, who’s going to BUY nice things created here, who’s going to be the philanthropist?
    Oh, I REMEMBER….socialists like Obama want EVERYBODY TO HAVE EVERYTHING…no problem! 🙂

    Mal, yet it’s an extremely close call, according to the Israeli press……
    I can’t imagine voting for anybody who wasn’t as concerned as Bibi is for israel’s safety, but I personally know Israelis who’d give everything away for peace, thinking that land is the question instead of their being hated only for their faith. They just don’t see that …

    Like

  20. I believe that thinking (“anything for peace”) comes from continual wars in their country, Z. When Joni and I visited Israel in 1995, Eli, the cab driver we hired for the day, said he was 50 and had fought in 3 wars was tired of fighting! He, like all Israelis, served in the Army at age 18 for two years, then remained in the reserve till age 50. Girls served too, but after two years, were done.
    Eli’s son had just turned 18 and was just going in. I can see how they might reach out for any hope that comes along.

    Mal, I totally understand that. What most Jews in Israel don’t understand (and I know this from Jewish friends who have lived there or whose family does) is that they really do think that if they give Palestine more land, Palestinians will stop fighting.
    And it’s got nothing to do with land and everything about Jews in the Neighborhood.
    Before Israelis understand that, they could become extinct, God forbid.
    And He probably will!

    Palestinians, & the rest of their ilk, are just like greedy union leaders: the more you give, the more they want. What they want is Israel GONE, GONE, GONE~!

    What I will never understand is how even the most liberal Jews, & most of them are very liberal, can support Bampot. It doesn’t take an MIT graduate to see where he stands when it comes to Israel vs. the Arabs. He hates Bibi, and doesn’t like Gen. Sisi since he kicked out the Muslim Brotherhood, He’s probably not too fond of King Abdullah, either. As I grew up on the Left Coast, in Beverly Hills, I know of what I speak when it comes to liberal Jews.
