Obama Flies to Las Vegas to Give One Speech

Posted by Steve Markowitz on January 29, 2013

Today President Obama flew on Air Force One from Washington DC to Las Vegas, Nevada.  The purpose of the trip was to give a speech on immigration (see White House release below).  According to the weeklystandard.com, this nine-hour round-trip cost taxpayers in excess of $1.5 million.

Left unsaid in the weeklystandard.com posting was the tons of carbon that Air Force One belched into the atmosphere for the President to make this campaign style speech.  Whatever happened to videoconferencing?  It is evident by his actions that Obama uses the man-made global warming scare for political gain, not for world improvement.

“While in Las Vegas, the President will deliver remarks on the need to fix the broken immigration system so that it is fairer for and helps grow the middle class by ensuring everyone plays by the same rules.  The President’s remarks at Del Sol High School are open to pre-credentialed media.”

“In the evening, the President will depart Las Vegas, Nevada en route Washington, DC.  The departure from McCarran International Airport and the arrival on the South Lawn are open press.”
