I despise this sort of garbage. It's like you people were asleep the entire time Bush was president.
Remember the ridiculous aircraft carrier sitting off the coast of California when Bush flew in like a fool in a flight suit to falsely claim that his "mission" was "accomplished"? How much do you think that bit of unnecessary political theater cost?
Bush did the same thing....they all do. Wake up.
You did read the part where "it was a show of force", right? "the cost of the Mission Accomplished speech given by George Bush is that it cost upwards of 2 million dollars, closer to 3." Now given this was ONE event and not a week in Europe, it figures you would use this comparison. Wake up.

What is funny about ANY Alaskan wanting to join Russia is that Alaska is one of the top MOOCHER states in the US.
The majority of the moocher states are REPUBLICAN red states.

Look, you don't know the costs of EITHER of those situations. The entire "Obama" article sounds like RW BS to me.....something straight from Brietbart or whatever that stupid site's name is.

The point remains true.....they ALL do it. They ALL have big, extravagant political events. Some are necessary....like Obama going overseas for these meetings. Some are totally political theater designed to waste taxpayer money....like Bush's "mission accomplished" fiasco years BEFORE Obama actually "accomplished" Bush's "mission" for him.

Why do I have to educate you people. This should be a known fact. The top states that take MORE in federal money than they pay in are REPUBLICAN states....including Alaska.

"As a 2007 analysis (above) of federal spending per tax dollar received by state shows, the reddest states generally reaped the most green. Eight of the top 10 beneficiaries of federal largesse voted for John McCain for President. Unsurprisingly, all 10 states at the bottom of the list - those whose outflow of tax revenue is funding programs elsewhere in the country - all voted for Barack Obama in 2008.

The numbers for Sarah Palin's Alaska are particularly telling. While Palin declared she would reject $288 million (31%) of the $931 million funds allocated for schools, energy assistance and social services, her state led the nation in earmark dollars received per capita in the omnibus spending bill just passed.(Alaskans got almost $210 per person in earmarks, while Californians got $16 and New Yorkers $13 in comparison.) Overall, Alaska ranks third in the federal gravy train, taking in $1.84 from Washington for each dollar sent there"

RED STATE SOCIALISM

""Of the 32 states which receive more than they contribute, 27 states (84%) are REPUBLICAN. Of the 18 states which contribute more than they receive, 14 states (78%) are DEMOCRATIC."

The source cited is a report by the Tax Foundation, a business-backed group. We checked with the Tax Foundation to see whether the data was legitimate and confirmed that it is"

Alaska Oil Wealth Nets State Residents $1,174 Checks--each

This is in addition to all the other gimmies that Ak. residents receive. I bet republikans petition signers and the idiot Sara Palin think Putin would share that oil wealth with them. Kind of like her being able to see Russia from her house--through the Talkeetna Mountains-- 718 miles away---below the horizon. Right. she should move to Russia tomorrow.

Well, you were correct, I checked.....but Bush took over 700 people with him when he went.

So times change and President Obama needs more security due to the fact that NUTS are typically RIGHT WINGERS.

California has the most people in the country. New York is the third most populous. They are both blue states. Each of these states, has more people on welfare, than working. Blue state economics,at its finest.

NINE out of the TEN POOREST states are REPUBLICAN

"By all three measures, 9 out of the 10 poorest states voted Republican in the last presidential election.(In fact, they voted Red in the last four elections.)

According to the latest Census data, 9 of the 10 states with the lowest per-person income levels were Red: Mississippi, Arkansas, Idaho, West Virginia, Kentucky, Utah, Alabama, South Carolina and Oklahoma.

The Census data also show that 9 of the 10 states with the lowest median household income were Red: Mississippi, Arkansas, West Virginia, Kentucky, Alabama, Tennessee, Louisiana, South Carolina and Oklahoma.

And 9 of the 10 states with the lowest median family income were Red: Mississippi, Arkansas, West Virginia, Kentucky, Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Louisiana and South Carolina.

The only Blue state on each list: New Mexico.

By the way, 9 of the 10 states with the highest per-person income voted Blue in the 2012 presidential race: Colorado, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Virginia and Washington. "

I'm glad you posted that....it just backs up MY point about Republicans.

Many of these red states in this list are Republican states, correct? AND they are also on the list of the POOREST states. So do you understand what that means? If not, I will be more than happy to explain it to you.

Those red states are CORPORATION friendly, where big corporations, thanks to Republican leadership, and RICH folks, thanks to Republican leadership, are making a whole lot of money and that money IS NOT "trickling down" to the middle class workers.

There you go....your list with my lists prove my point:

REPUBLICANS screw over the middle class. REPUBLICANS screw over the working class.

Thank you.:)
