If calling into question spending a million bucks on two nights of handshaking and glad handing while the country sets back and waits for the next
sequestration load-o-crap is stupid . . . gimme the dunce cap and I'll proudly wear it.
Since when has a vice president done anything useful besides sit around, attempt to look important and wait for his boss to die?
yes i do call it stupid...you need a hotel that has put into place a secure set of rooms, halls, entry ways, garages, that is able to be defended
against an attack, you have secret service, state dept liasons, assistants, and various other people that travel with the vice president that need
rooms for the night.
and since you already seem to know that the only thing the vice-president was doing was "handshaking and glad-handing"...maybe you can fill the rest
of us in on his exact intinerary.
Here you go junior . . . . probably world-saving meetings where the most in depth of policy was set that will undoubtedly save the EU and put things
all okey-diddly-dokey on this side of the pond.
Biden's trip will kick off in Germany, where he plans to meet with Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin, and give a policy speech at the Munich
Security Conference. Biden appeared before that group four years ago, at the beginning of Obama's first term.
He and second lady Jill Biden will then travel to Paris, where he will meet with President François Hollande and members of the French government.
Biden will then cross the Channel, for meetings in London with Prime Minister David Cameron, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, and other members of
the British Cabinet.
A million bucks is a lot to go visit the other leaders.
There was this novel thing invented a while back . . . the telephone. If that's too unswanky maybe a virtual meeting or two would suffice.
But when you're crying the blues over the lack of green and you spend this kind of dough, you ought to expect a bit of negative press and
'Cept in your world where we who question such things are simply stupid
. In your world, we should all just sit back and accept what we do not
believe is right and then further sit back when you call us 'stupid' for speaking up.
In my opinion, you are what is wrong with this country in that you'll accept a million dollar seemingly unnecessary junket to keep up the appearance
that the US is still the string-pullers of the world and whoever disagrees with you is . . . well . . . stupid.
Now run along . . . Dancing with the Network Bachelor Idol of the Arias Trial is on HLN . . . you wouldn't want to miss that.
