Remember That ‘Long-Standing Commitment’ In Lake Charles Mary Had?

Obama apparently didn’t mind that Mary was riding on Air Force One down from DC so that she could work a room full of Democrat females at $40 a head. To him, that’s the Lord’s work.

“You have one of the best mayors in the country in Mitch Landrieu.  (Applause.)  And I just flew down with your Senator, who, by coincidence, has the same name — Mary Landrieu.  (Applause.)  She’s traveling around the state today and doing unbelievable work on behalf of the people of Louisiana.  And I just want to say nobody is a tougher advocate on behalf of the working people of Louisiana than Mary Landrieu.  So we’re very, very proud of the work that she does.”

“Unbelievable work on behalf of the people of Louisiana.” Paid for by your tax dollars – you provided her the most expensive airplane in America to ride on from Washington to New Orleans.
