Correct me if I'm wrong. I thought our president was concerned about our overuse of fuel. I thought he wanted us to drive less, thus reducing our dependence on foreign oil.
Why then has he spent the greater part of this week travelling all over. Over the three day weekend he flew to Chicago and back to Washington. On Tuesday, he flew to Denver and back to Washington. On Wednesday, he flew to Arizona and back to Washington. Today he has flown to Canada. I assume he will fly back to Washington. Then where will he go next?
If he worked for an employer other than the we taxpayers, he would have been obligated to fly to Chicago, then directly to Denver, then to Arizona and then to Canada and finally back to Washington.
I thought he was computer savy. Has this man never heard of teleconferencing? He could have saved all that fuel by just having his meetings via the computer in the Oval Office, or he could have just televised all his signings and rallies.
I don't expect him to fly commercial, but he is putting an awful lot of miles on Air Force I and burning a lot of fuel that could have been given to some of the states that could use it for their emergency vehicles, or even sold at a very low rate to poor people who need their cars for transportation.
This is a terrible waste of energy and our money.
