If the American taxpayer is going to have to ante up every time the Obama White House goes into damage control mode, we'd best tack another trillion onto the deficit.
How much is it costing us for the president to stage his "teachable moment" beer show? How much will it cost to fly the participants round trip to the White House and back home again? How much of the president's time does this publicity stunt funnel away from the country's countless issues?
How many more times in the next few years will this president draw upon taxpayer funds to cover his clumsy tracks?
I think I need a drink.
