Limousines, the very symbol of wealth and excess, are usually the domain of corporate executives and the rich. But the number of limos owned by Uncle Sam increased by 73 percent during the first two years of the Obama administration, according to an analysis of records by iWatch News.
Obama administration officials said most of the increase reflects an enhanced effort to protect diplomats and other government officials in a dangerous world.
Protect diplomats, yes, right........... Today I am more concerned about being protected FROM
diplomats! After seeing the former IMF head being charged with sexual assault we hear this:
New York - A businessman and former chairman of a major Egyptian bank faces charges of sexually assaulting a maid at a luxury Manhattan hotel just weeks after the arrest of a former International Monetary Fund chief on similar allegations.
And you can not be safe and comfy unless you are riding in a limo? I think we could save some money by eliminating limos, even those bought from Government Motors.
