Well, if they could just arraign for a Steelers game one of those nights it wouldn't be as bad. The good thing is that they are having this is a city that could use the money.

WHERE do you think the Whitehouse gets that money from? IT IS MONEY FROM THE TAXPAYERS! So he isn't sparing taxpayers, he is SPENDING TAXPAYER MONEY! If he REALLY wanted to spare the taxpayer, he'd dig into his OWN deep pockets (he's a millionaire, you know) instead of SPENDING TAXPAYER'S MONEY!

This is still taxpayer money, but it is just coming from somewhere else. No difference really

That is because Obama thinks of the Whitehouse budget as his money and not the taxpayers money and so do all of his appointees, etc. Just remember the Airforce 1 photo-opp at the Statue of Liberty.
