Let's discuss 'How much will Obama's visit cost? Nobody's quite sure'.

One question many people have been asking since the White House announced President Obama's Wednesday visit to the area: "How much is it going to cost us?" The answer: Nobody really knows. Or if they do, they aren't saying.

A WHOLE LOT!!!  after all he is the  President of the United States of America.  If my tax dollars can pay for Bush and Cheny, as long as they live (for  the mess they left us taxpayers in) I will happily pay my tax dollars for another  trip to Elkhart County, for a President that cares about us and is trying to do something  for us ALL.

For all of you that disagree with me it's ok after all this is AMERICA, and we can disagree.Smile

Knowing that the cost to the tax payer is actually more than the congressman calculated in the 2006 report, (no offense but a corporation that would even attempt to apply the HAC accounting standards would be prosocuted to the fullest extent of the LAW) HAC (hack) is the acronym for House Appropriations Commitee, and a fitting name for this group. I have to believe there is a reason this came to mind. Obama's influence is a privilage that is not earned, he is being paraded around as the "First" Black Man to be President. I voted for him because I believed he could make a difference, I now know that was foolishness!

I work for the largest, most successful technology corporation to ever exist, and we could easily afford to burn cash on trips here and there, but to deliver value to shareholders we use a common service called the conference call to connect with clients in these challenging economic times! What a concept right?

How about being the first President of the Greatest Nation in the World to use common sense!

Who cares where you are born, your gender, or what obvious color your skin happens to be...Leadership is proven by example, wisdom is learned and given, common sense is self explanitory!

I don't believe Obama's legecy will be "he First Black Man to be President" more than likely it will be " dumb *** who drove the world into economic and social crisis"

As all my elementary school teachers would say when we were about to apply knowledge...let's put on our "Thinking Caps"!

When I look at this I have to pause for a moment and reflect, all that comes to mind is..Really, you have to be kidding me!? Not Obama! But reality dictates that we must have our cookie and take our nap like good boys and girls, Daddy has to play big shot now so we must go to t-ball practice so he will be proud of us....Justin are you kidding me, $700B (B for BIG ones) write me a darn check my friend and I will go cash that bad boy and create my own economic stim package called grocery and school supply purchses, that just might buy a min wage worker's kid a happy meal...but it is real and doesn't buy a fools way out of a stupid investment!

This man is incompetent to LEAD a Nation in Crisis! He needs a "Time Out" to think about his errors in judgement! The world will blame HIM not Bush over time! We are educating our children to achive far more than we will ever be capable of...they will decide and when they do there will be a price to pay! They will not act "STUPIDLY" nor speak in a manner unbecoming a LEADER! Geez...give me a freakin' break! Know when to shut the hell up and just do the damn job!

I just pray that GOD will have mercy on us, what have we become and who will save us? HA! we know the answer to that question! Obama is our man, he knows when to put our money where his mouth is!

I'll take my $27K check now, I need to go throw a stimulus party at Wal-Mart!

I'm disgusted by this trip. Elkhart didn't get the money they wanted for police officers. I guess our consolation is to kiss the hand of our great provider. Of course, he's borrowed money in our children's name to bring us his gifts. I'm sure we would have been better off with the money to pay our police, and him "taking care of business" in Washington.

This is kind of silly.  It is the kind of criticism that can always be leveled, but will only be used if you don't like the person/party.  By the way, the money is being spent in America, paid to Americans, and supporting Americans and American Ideals.

Elkahrtmiss, as a point of fact, Bill Clinton was the last president to receive lifetime Secret Service protection. George W. Bush will receive protection for 10 years after leaving office.

I suppose if you don't care about the use of the jet fuel, or where it comes from, the carbon emissions, or other things the money could buy, then, yes, this is just about personality.
