Good afternoon,

Is it just me or is anyone else bothered by President Obama flying to Colorado in an aircraft that costs somewhere between 40 and 60 thousand dollars per hour to fly (not to mention the additional aircraft for security and transport equipment) so that he can sign a bill in a place touting green technology. A bill that will add to the dept of every man woman and child in this country by an additional $2,250.00?

Air Force One is a great tool for projecting the power of the presidency, it seems to me this is a bad time to use it. This sends the wrong message to the people and does little to send the idea of the going green.

I'm bothered by the government as a whole... Maybe it's just me.

Heather: It's not just you, look at the polls. Congress has one of the lowest ratings in history. unfortunately they've earned it.

Perhaps FedEx might have been a better choice?

RLL: At his desk in his office would have been simple.

Heather: I started thinking, after three years maybe it was time I started learning to do some of this stuff.

I would love to watch you do a happy dance;)

I am bothered by Obama as a whole already and all of the changes he's trying to make that affect our personal lives.

Rage: You should be at the speed that all this is happening, where likely to turn around and find ourselves not only broke, but devoid of our constitutional rights.

It looks he's going to stay into divisive taxpayer-paid campaign mode forever the way he's going.
