Cellular world -- -- -- is the numbers that I've got from the daily cola they say.
That's President Obama.
Has and his cabinet colleagues.
Have visited 130.
Colleges and schools between -- -- eleven and march 2012.
That's the president and cabinet members all on the taxpayer's dime.
You object to that.
-- I mean I think we've reached a level of obnoxious -- still.
-- I mean I get it as you pointed out other presidents have used Air Force One.
Four events that may appear to be campaigning.
But this president has taken everything.
Every former president has ever done and put it on steroids and here's an example.
So the president has three fundraisers.
On the calendar down in Florida.
Now these fund raisers are on the calendar for many weeks you don't invite the president in your home for a fund raiser without a lot of warning and notice.
You have to get caterers you have to get.
Drinks put together and you have to get people in your house and then two days ahead of time the president says.
You know what we're gonna deliver a speech at the University of Miami.
You make that announcement you take a ride on Air Force One to get there you use taxpayer money to fund most of the entire trip.
You raise money for your campaign.
You stage the audience Stewart.
I mean you look at the president's speeches at these universities and to audiences all stage they have every one they want behind the president.
That you know -- you know hint of -- these may be the president has done this mall than other presidents but it is the same thing as other presidents have -- And you run the risk manager of looking like you nit picking.
You being on the no I don't -- so.
I don't think so I don't think so Stuart I think that the reason we waited was that when you reach a level of obnoxious and that's.
And you were and you cross that line has to what's a reasonable and what's not reasonable.
I think it's been pretty clear that this president is his MIA in Washington only thing he does is campaign.
And an -- as -- why -- that the president deliver a speech at the University of Tennessee but about the University of Alabama.
How about the University of Texas pop coming -- how come these speeches always end up in Ohio.
I'll law Florida.
I get it.
Get what what are you -- as you -- -- they get it I mean look them.
The president is up for reelection he's going to do the best thing politically that he can do but isn't there a time in the month of may.
Went after that it is campaigning.
And he does -- that -- all the campaign has to pay for his travel isn't there a date that you arrive at some time.
Well curiously Stewart about an hour after we filed the complaint with the GAO.
The -- for the Obama campaign held them had held a call amongst each other themselves that is.
And then an hour after that they announced that they would declared that after may fifth.
All of the events they're -- would be campaign events and it would if the seemingly.
End this abuse and taxpayers after may fifth so.
You know obviously we struck a chord somewhere there.
You I think that the the definition of what's a reasonable.
Can change under different facts and I would say the facts surrounding this president and how is abusing taxpayer money.
Is something that we should all look at may the fifth is the date stops at that point -- -- -- -- thanks for joining us as always so we appreciate being with us thank you.
