Party pays for non-official trips

I'll bet you won't publish this letter because it doesn't fit into your POTUS-bashing new right wing format. To all those who are "incensed" and "upset" over the horrible costs involved in the president's visit to the area, please stop pulling your hair and tearing your clothes. If a presidential visit is not an official visit, the entire cost (except the press whose agencies kick in to cover the press planes) is paid to the federal government by that POTUS' national party.
Where were you and your indignation when the shrub was wearing the skies out between D.C. and East Goat Rope, Texas? Oh, that's right, he's a Republican isn't he?
Once again, the right rants and foams at the mouth over the POTUS because "he's one of those 'others'" is overcome by about 15 seconds of research and facts.
