They Really Are Limousine Liberals, It’s Your Money!
These elitist liberals in the Obama administraton really have mastered the “Do as I say, not as I do” thing. While Obama, Pelosi and Reid continue to shove there “Green Agenda” down our throats they continue to live in lavish luxury. Whether it’s the 75% increase in luxury limousines or fancy new luxury 757 jet Pelosi just couldn’t do without.
(480,000 per month, $5,760,000 per year thats what your paying for that shrew Nancy Pelosi to jet back and forth from D.C. to California every week. Better yet she ditched her USAF C-20B Gulfstream for a Boeing 757 USAF vip equipped USAF C-32 so she can fly non-stop over the sloven masses after her brutal 3-day work week. The Speaker and her passengers routinely reimburse the Air Force $120 to $400 for each flight. Just when did these politicians become royalty, its no wonder they have no clue what the rest of us are having to contend with. What do you think her carbon footprint is? This is just a snippet of the blatant waste and abuse we all pay for, there is no end to there assault on taxpayers. Recent FOIA request also show how she uses these flights to shuttle her family members from San Francisco to Washington for vacations.)
While the rest of the country is suffering through massive growing unemployment, rising food and energy bills and declinig property values. Obama, Pelosi and Reid jet around the country burning millions of gallons of jet and limousine fuel spreading there propaganda and spendng our hard earned taxes bribing voting blocks and paying back there leftist bankrollers like corrupt labor unions. The God of Green Al Gore and fellow tree huggers are making billions of dollars from all the taxpayer spending on silly ineffecient green lunacy that never will provide the countries energy needs. But all this Obama spending our hard earned tax dollars is making a lot of his liberal supporters very very rich. America hating bottom feeders like George Soros pulls the strings in the Obama administration while profiting from the very things they speak out against.
Obama decimates U.S. drilling in the gulf, costing 100,000+ jobs, then turns around and gives Petrobas a state owned Brazilian company for deep water drilling. And what is George Soros’s second largest investment in, yep PETROBAS. Who is under contract to get most of this oil, CHINA! Who gets major financial backing from leftist Billionire Georgey Soros, Barrack Hussein Obama, Nancy Pelosi and the cowboy poet Harry Reid. Don’t forget the lavish travel spending queen Michelle does, but since the White House refuses to relrease costs’s of Michelles trip’s to Paris, Spain, Africa and dozens more we can only guess but looking at past figures from the Clinton travels you can see it’s a bundle. Don’t forget fuel and security cost’s have skyrocketed since then
“Presidential travel to foreign destinations requires planning, coordination, and logistical and personnel support,” the report stated. “The estimated incremental costs of President Clinton’s trips to Africa, Chile, and China were at least $42.8 million, $10.5 million, and $18.8 million, respectively. The largest of these costs consisted of operating expenses of the president’s aircraft and other military passenger and cargo aircraft; travel expenses, including lodging for the travelers; and telecommunications, vehicle, and other equipment rentals and procurement in the countries visited.”
So remember the next time Obama starts talking down to us how we don’t share our dwindling incomes enough that he and his fellow liberals are full of $hit.

While you were being encouraged to trade in your gas guzzler and buy an expensive electric golf cart, the size of the government’s limo fleet was almost doubling:
The number of limousines owned by the U.S. government increased by 73 percent during the first two years of the Obama administration, according to a new report by iWatch news.
An analysis of General Services Administration data reveals the federal fleet has increased from 238 limos in 2008—the last year of the Bush Administration— to 412 limos in 2010. Much of the increase was recorded in the State Department under Hillary Clinton.
For its part, the Obama administration said the increased number of limousines in the federal fleet reflects “an enhanced effort to protect diplomats and other government officials in a dangerous world.”
Is each re-set button getting its own limo now? And not to nitpick, but wasn’t the world supposed to be markedly less dangerous as of January 20, 2009?
The “limo” data is difficult to track with any degree of certainty, because, well, the government doesn’t quite know how to define what a limo is:
The GSA (General Services Administration) said its limousine numbers are not reliable, even though the federal fleet numbers are officially recorded every year. In a statement, GSA spokeswoman Sara Merriam said, “The categories in the Fleet Report are overly broad, and the term ‘limousine’ is not defined,” adding that “vehicles represented as limousines can range from protective duty vehicles to sedans.” Asked whether the GSA actually knows how many limos it has in its fleet, Merriam responded that GSA “cannot say that its report accurately reflects the number of limousines.”
Leslie Paige, a spokeswoman for the nonprofit watchdog group Citizens Against Government Waste, was outraged that the GSA’s numbers may not be accurate. “They can’t figure out a way to define a limo? How hard can it be? If the government can’t track limos, I’m not sure we should trust the numbers they put out there on anything,” she said.
If they can’t define “green job” it’s no surprise “limo” throws them for a classification loop.
In fairness to the current administration, the report offers a slight “blame Bush” window of opportunity. Additionally, at last word there were several dozen limos stuck on bumps in roads all around the world that have to be continually replaced:
