It's not about the accounting it's about the decision to carry on with business as usual when he promised change. I don't see anyone saying this is illegal, just that it shouldn't be happening and that we're tired of the same old games being played. By your standard, if the 3rd Reich's books were in orderm then everything was hunky-dory. Right is right and wrong is wrong, regardless of whether the paperwork was done correctly...

It's not illegal. It's not "wrong". There is nothing wrong with the President conducting political business on the same trip he conducted offical business. In the long run it SAVES the country money by not having the secret service plan two different trips.

Obama to visit KC | CJOnline.com
I missed him when he was in Boise. (I really don't fight crowds for many people-Sean Connery maybe), but I wouldn't mind seeing another President face to face.
Saw Lyndon Johnson when he was vice President. He was just walking down the street in my home town (a touristy place). What impressed me was how tall he was.

Puhlease... It's the gov't giving special consideration and considerable $$$ to support the election of one candidate over another. You know this, so why act like that's not what's happening and try to play silly little games???
