Another Wasteful Speech

Aside from being just another campaign speech, where the President again quoted terrorists freely to make his point that we cannot leave Iraq, I was appalled just now to see AF-1 taking off from Norfolk on the way back to Andrews AFB.

If you've never been to the east coast, take a look at a map. It's a distance of less than 200 miles.

That's like flying a 747 from O'Hare to Champaign to watch the first half of a U of I football game.

What's more the fuel economy for such a trip (to ferry Bush and his little entourage) is hardly wise considering current energy costs for the average American, and what we're going to be living through this winter.

Good thing we have an intrepid Speaker of the House, leading a House of Representatives on the watch for such examples of slothful government waste.
