They then left for a "two week spring break". What is this college, they work three days a week and need a two week spring break.

The king and sheriff are demanding a trillion more from the peasants. Is it time for revolt yet?

"Dont forget to factor in the 200 million Obama just gave to Jordan" -- some perspective... the Bush administration provided between $510 and $884 million per year in aid to Jordan during his last term

The Democrat plan is to saddle our children with another $7 trillion in debt so they can continue to live high off the hog and buy the votes of the lazy. Disgusting. Somebody needs to stand up to these tyrants.

Living high off the hog is cruel, harsh and oppressive? Is that kinda like how President Obama is a fascist socialist? ........ When faced with choosing between a budget that magnifies the biggest failures of the Bush administration or a budget that preserves the social safety net while at the same time growing the economy... to those living in a fact-based reality... the choice is clear.

Hotel Contracts for Biden Trip to London, Paris Totaled $1 Million Email75Smaller FontTextLarger Text|Print By Arlette Saenz @ArletteSaenz Follow on Twitter Mar 22, 2013 8:08pm Vice President Joe Biden’s trip to Europe last month led to a hefty tab with over $1 million for hotels for himself, staff and security for two nights in London and Paris, government documents show. As first reported by The Weekly Standard, documents show that the U.S. State Department obtained contracts with two five-star hotels in London and Paris where the vice president stayed for two nights during a five-day tour of Europe last month. One contract was awarded to the Hyatt Regency London for a total of $459,338.65 while another went to the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand for $585,000.50

"Hotel Contracts for Biden Trip to London, Paris Totaled $1 Million " -- sounds about as credible as the $200 million per day trip to India... and about as well reported. The "reporter" who claimed the London trip was $459k for a single night somehow didn't mention a supporting document that said up to 136 rooms may be needed for up to 893 room nights (almost an entire week). Living in a fact-based world... it appears the misinformed among us have exaggerated this claim by only 650%... which is an improvement over the 2000% of the India claim.... Keep swingin', Obama haters... you may eventually get one right

kleindropper =========== Disgusting. Somebody needs to stand up to these tyrants. ========= I think you had your chance in early November. As I recall, your tyrant and his little budget munster got their butts handed to them. Plus losing seats in the House AND the Senate. Sounds like Americans like that the President wants to look out for the middle class rather than to provide huge tax giveaways to the country club set.
