cost to fly AF One is 182K per hour; its four hours each way from DC. So just the cost to fly alone (not security and all the other whoopla) is 1.6 million dollars. He has no other events scheduled and is flying straight back to DC after giving the speech at a Las Vegas high school.
Will anybody in the mainstream media question this?
Obama could give the damn speech at a minority high school in northern VA and achieve the same result; but NO he has to fly across the country and give it in Vegas. Incredible. This man will break our country before he is done..........the working man doesnt have a chance in todays world.

The fact that you are griping about his trip will make more people pay attention to the issue, than if he had made the speech at a minority high school in northern Virginia. There is a better chance of solving the problem if more people are paying attention.

So he should ignore the rest of the country and just go to events within driving distance of D.C.? That's just stupid! And I hate to tell you this but in the time it took me to type this Congress has probably pissed away a lot more than $1.6M so its really pocket change to them.
