Thanks to Bob Moffitt for enhancing out our story about President Obama's not-as-loose-as-he-said-it-was visit to Minnesota:

So his plane costs something like $180k/hr to operate just to get him here. I can't imagine what the rest of his security detail cost. Overall this whole Minneapolis trip easily cost millions of dollars! And buying a $5 ice cream cone is "stimulating the economy"?

Do you really think the president has a say in how he travels, and the security detail around him? Come on, now. Have a moment of sanity and realize what he has is no different than anyone's since President Bush Sr.'s attempted assassination. Just think before you post a comment. Just for a moment.
