Obama Campaigning at Taxpayer's Expense

Has Obama found a clever way to campaign at our expense. His speeches so far have been pure campaign rhetoric, will anyone call him out on this? With 41 cents on the dollar borrowed money Obama makes campaign sweeps in a $1.1 million dollar bus. Who knows what the actual expense for security and other collateral damage is. Is Obama tone deaf, out of touch with America or just don't give a rat's elbow? You've gotta give him credit for guts.

I've always disagreed in those who campaign for their future elections, totally ignoring the concerns of today. This goes for both the left and the right. It just doesn't seem right. (See, I am compromising!)

Why do we even bother debating this issue? They are ALL crooks. In fact, if you look up crook in the dictionary, 'politician' is the definition- at least in my version.

Wait, my response is wrong? I'm pretty sure there isn't an honest one in the bunch.

and is so extremely different then what any of the past presidents have done, but somehow it's wrong for this specific president to do the same, somehow for some reason.

Yup! If it were Bush of a few years ago, the right wingers would be all for it.

I disagree with the above statement. Apples and oranges!
