I thought I’d share this email I got from a reader about President Obama’s decision to hop aboard Air Force One Tuesday and fly out to Dayton, Ohio with British Prime Minister David Cameron to check out a basketball game.
I can’t fathom what the president, who has done nothing serious to dislodge us from the precipice of budgetary disaster, was thinking when he decided to waste so much money.
Oh, actually, I know what he was thinking. He was thinking, “I’d like to see an NCAA tournament game.”
Anyway, this reader offered up such a raw, on-point, and well put critique that I thought I’d share it with you.
I felt that I really wanted to give him an outlet for his frustration. I noted that there was nothing malicious about what he wrote. It was just a cry of genuine grief.
Have a look. And I hope a White House that is so out of touch that it would dare pull this kind of stunt gets a look at it too.
Dear Mr. Koffler,
Am I the only one who has a problem with the President spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayer money for all his travel expenses to go to a college basketball game in Dayton Ohio?
While millions of Americans like me are struggling to fill our tanks and just make ends meet.
He talks fiscal responsibility and all that, but his actions speak louder than his empty words. He can’t get out of the White House fast enough for me. I’m not crazy about the Republican choices either. What a mess.
I just can’t believe how our Government has run amuck. It seems they are out of control and we can’t do anything about it.
Anyway, after filling up my car today at $3.90 a gallon, then I heard the Prez was flying to Dayton to watch a basketball game on my tax dollar I had to say something, for what it’s worth. I wish people like me could actually tell these fuzzy big wigs to knock it off and they actually would.
