Video | CNN Parroting RIGHT WING Smears on VP Biden’s Paris Trip: Questioning President Obama’s Travel & Transparency

Who REALLY wants to know how much the President Obama and Vice President Biden’s trips costs? WHO?!!!





Erin Burnett and CNN aka FOX WANNABES are picking up where WINGNUT, Rep Michele Bachmann, teabaggers, and hack journalists left off. One day, CNN goes after Bachmann, and the next day, they run with the crazy.

Maybe CNN should start covering the GOP OBSTRUCTIONISM and the costs of those wars that weren’t paid for that put our country in the debt shithole it’s in now.

TALK ABOUT THAT LAVISH SPENDING, CNN.  Dig into that and report line-by-line how much the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are costing American tax payers.  But that would be too much like reporting the FACTS.

Travel with the veep is magnifique! 

This kind of reporting isn’t new, though.  Remember this nonsense about First Lady Michelle Obama? Expensive massages, top shelf vodka and five-star hotels: First Lady accused of spending $10m in public money on her vacations

Really, did CNN report on VP Cheney and Bush’s foreign trips? NO! Because he and Bush weren’t questioned and hounded by the press and their peers about their travels or the wars they took our American citizens into.

President Barack Hussein Obama and Vice President Obama are free-loaders and traveling off the backs of the American tax payers.

Yet this isn’t uncommon for the wing nuts to rant about the cost of trips this president and Vice President takes, especially when he’s out of the country.


Presidential Travel: Policy and Costs

May 2012

Only recently has information become available regarding the overall cost associated with travel by the President, Vice President, and First Lady. In 1992, the House Committee on Post Office and Civil Service estimated that two presidential trips, one to Europe in 1989 and the other to Hawaii in 1990, cost the Air Force $1 million to $1.5 million, and that the average vice presidential trip cost the Air Force $250,000 to $500,000.15

These estimates involved operational costs; they did not include per diem and other travel-related expenses.  In 1999, GAO estimated the incremental costs, including per diem and related expenses, of presidential trips in 1998 to Africa, Chile, and China to be at least $42.8 million, $10.5 million, and $18.8 million respectively.16 In 2000, GAO estimated that the Department of Defense “spent at least $292 million to provide fixed-wing airlift and air refueling support for 159 White House foreign trips” (27 by the President, 20 by the First Lady, 8 by the Vice President, and 104 directed by the President) from January 1, 1997, through March 31, 2000.17 These estimates did not include per diem and other travel-related expenses.

Here’s the 411, Folks. The peeps who are yammering about travel cost for this president and the Vice President are doing so because:

2. HOW DARE BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA travel with Secret Service protection and use our tax dollars are paying for it!

      Hi Cynthia, Yep; these paid hacks are shilling for their CORPORATE MASTERS.

      But thanks to social media, we’re not going to let them REVISE history.

    Jake Tapper’s The Lead Not At All In The Lead During Debut Week
    by Mediaite Staff | 5:23 pm, March 22nd, 2013

    CNN’s new Jake Tapper show, The Lead has placed behind Fox News and MSNBC in both the demo and total viewership every afternoon for its first four days of air.

    Among the big three cable networks, at 4 p.m. ET, Tapper’s debut episode on Monday finished last in both total viewers and the key 25-54 demo:

    LOL HEAD ON OVER TO FOX; oh that’s right, CNN is FOX.

  4. It’s never ending with the right wing racists in questioning the black Potus’ birth certificate, travel expenses, vacations, whether or not he skeet shoots, Christianity etc. It ALL about President Obama’s BLACKNESS! They HATE he’s sitting in that OVAL OFFICE!

    • Ametia says:

      Yes; as long as PBO is in that WH, his EVERY move will be questioned, because, naturally, he’s black and not white.

      The leader of the free world should be WHITE.

      To not question the Black President’s every motive for his actions; would DISCREDIT their whiteness, their privilege as the AUTHORITY figures of the UNIVERSE! LOL

    • carolynneu says:

      Yes, after much thot and observing, I believe you are correct about President Obama’s Blackness etc. I am so proud that he is a man of wisdom and conscience. He will leave a great legacy and a better more balanced world.

  5. Ametia says:

    Roland Martin and Soledad O’Brien should be delighted they’re being relieved of any significant airtime on CNN.

  6. Y’all remember this? CNN’s Erin Burnett: Obama May Be Making Up Skeet-Shooting at Camp David.

    This is what Erin Burnett does. See CNN & Erin Burnett will report on PBO’s birth certificate, travel expenses ,Donald Trump’s buffoonery, skeet shooting etc but NOTHING on how Bush and company led the country into an illegal war. Report what the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are costing the American taxpayers, CNN.

    Evidently these REPORTERS did not vet their information before they reported it. First rule is to check your sources and background information before releasing any public statement. Thanks 3 chicspolitico for bringing clarity.

    • Ametia says:

      Thank you, Trinette. Unfortunately, this will continue, well after PBO leaves office. Anything they can do to chip away at his LEGITAMCY as POTUS. But we’re not going to let them revise history, are we?
