    If my expertise doesn’t extend to building embassies, then I’m going to go on a limb and guess that yours doesn’t extend to securing them.

    And we’ll just have to disagree about net expense. Your argument is the same tired argument made by most departments in our government-my budget was X last year so it should be at least X next year, whether the money is needed or not.

    I concur. I have absolutely no experience here but a beautiful, secure embassy for twice the price of a regular high end office building feels about right to me. 4 times seems a bit excessive in my never humble opinion.

    Am I the only one who thought, "Why is the president going to Rupp Arena?" When they read the title? :cool:

    I mean, think about that. He needs an excuse for skipping the trip, so he blames Obama. And can get that little bit right.

    Since when do you care how much our government spends/wastes? For 8 years you thought nothing of Obama's 10 trillion dollar spending spree, for which the United States got virtually nothing tangible from it.

    A one trillion dollar debt for which no one went to jail over? Lol... What happened to that $900+ billion dollar bailout? Where did those jobs go? I remember Obama GIVING the Germans and the Mexicans $20 billion of that said money for these two countries to build us our wind-turbines... Instead of building that industry (with $20 billion you could have build that entire industry here from the ground up) right here in the U.S.A..

    this is your attempt to deflect from Trump's outright lie about our embassy in London? "Yeah, well Obama had some wind turbines built ...."

    Based on a decision made in the Bush Administration. By the way there actually is a reason why security matters for US embassies. Terrorism is real. This is what happened to the US Embassy in Nairobi in 1998.

    Since when do you know whether I cared? I’ve said for over a decade entitlements need to be reformed and the budget trajectory changed.
