And the $$ number you quote is sensationalized anyways, no one has the means of knowing what the exact costs are, it's one of those things hard to quantify accurately.

What's inexcusable to me is finding out I paid for Secret Service to provide security for some a$$hat who wasn't even keen on running for President in the first place. All those hard-paid tax $$ down the toilet for a moron who took the nation for a ride with his unique combination of stupidity, lack of respect, criss-crossing webs of deceit, ineptness and irrelevance..
That's the definition of most politicians...what's new? Your jimmies rustled?
