Obama should be ashamed

for his frivilous and wasteful use of Air Force One.

Flying to Florida just to make a speech on high gas prices is bad enough, but staying in the air to watch a game is criminal.

For the record, the military pegged the hourly cost of flying Air Force One at $181,000.  So Obama’s extra time in the air cost taxpayers $90,500.

Doug Ross reported on this from The Daily Mail:

The President lives a lavish lifestyle and loves his expensive luxury vacations, at a time while Americans are hurting. He is frequently seen eating burgers and fatty foods while in public at a time that the First Lady is promoting healthy eating by others.

This Administration seems to have a “Let Them Eat Cake – but make it a Diet Low Carb Cake” mentality.

President Obama flew to Florida this past week to explain high gas prices.  According to the Washington Post, on his way to Florida this past Thursday, reporters were “perplexed” at the President’s 41 minute flight from Washington, DC to Orlando, Florida taking 1 hour and 15 minutes. The flight was in the air an extra 30 minutes, burning precious fossil fuels.

It does not seem a coincidence that the President landed right at half time of an NBA basketball game between the star studded Miami Heat and New York Knicks.  Some theorized that the President delayed his flight in the air to watch more of the basketball game.
