Another Presidential Visit
I do not take partisan issue with this--yes the Bushes spent a lot of tax payer money going to their respective country homes. My complaint is really that both Obama and Clinton seem to love visiting NYC. Most of us who live and/or work here hate it.
Last night when I was trying to get home after a late night class, Obama's movements blocked off Park Avenue! All traffic comes to a complete standstill. While tourists might find it interesting to see a Presidential motorcade (see above), I'll tell you New Yorkers just find this annoying. I overheard one man delayed at a corner on his cell phone telling whoever was on the other side of the call, "if you ever vote for Obama, I'm going to kill you."
