In a post on her Gretawire blog about reforming the immigration system, Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren comments on President Obama's upcoming trip to Africa this week:
Seal the borders. Don’t tell me we don’t have the money – we do. We can stop doing stupid thinks [sic] like the IRS, in just 2 years, spending $50 million on conferences involving line dancing and trinkets. (They don’t have receipts for the other years and you can expect the same absurd waste.) We can sell empty government buildings (the number of buildings is staggering!) and everyone, including the President, can tighten the belt (is this really the right time to be going to Africa to the tune of $60-100 million dollars?)
Obama, along with his wife Michelle and their two daughters, embark on a diplomatic, seven-day trip to Africa on Wednesday.
