Even though President Obama has been campaigning for over a year now, he claims he is highlighting his role as Chief Executive and his appearances are official events. As a result, the taxpayers get to pay for his travels even though most include fundraisers.
Air Force One alone costs costs $179,750 per hour to operate. Obama’s campaign picks up some of the tab for some of the events. The campaign is blaming Bush of course, saying they are imitating him. They also claim they are doing what Clinton did as well. So much for change.
If Bush was so terrible, why do they keep imitating him?
