As it turns out, Vice President Joe Biden’s London stay in February was not the most expensive part of his trip. A government document released on February 14, 2013 shows that the contract for the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand came in at $585,000.50.
The documentation for this contract is not as detailed as the London one, so the cost per room is not available. However, just like his London hotel, the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand is a five star hotel. Again, security concerns prevent these type of contracts from being open to bidding, but if the government was able to do some comparison shopping, the Hotel Intercontinental has a special offer, “Find a lower price elsewhere and your first night is free.” The Vice President stayed in Paris for one night.

President Obama’s field trip to Israel must have cost a pretty penny. The White House Press Office told us they rented every room in the King David Hotel….

Did anyone notice that any nation but the Vatican would have been insulted by visitors from the United States who so flagrantly disregard what the host nation believes…. Pro-Abortion Biden and Pelosi selected as the Official Representatives of the United States of America for the Pope Francis’ installation? Diplomatic insanity.
