Obama’s hotel bill for one night in Brussels: $1.5M
By LU Staff on April 4, 2014 at 12:25 pm 

By now it’s no secret that the already-exorbitant cost of operating Air Force One jumped 27% under the Obama administration, to $228,288 per hour. But how much does it cost the president to stay overnight in a hotel in Brussels? How does $1,522,646.36 sound?

The Weekly Standard’s Jeryl Bier did some digging and came up with this document:

Bier explains that the cost also includes two weeks for an advance team to scout out the premises. But if you divide the amount on the government document by 14, you still end up with a nightly rate of $108,760, which seems a tad high.

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
