BUSH GO HOME! Security Costs For George Bush In Canada Costs Taxpayers $500,000!

"Keeping George W. Bush safe on the Canadian speaking circuit is on track to cost the RCMP more than half-a-million dollars this year, as taxpayers foot the bill regardless of whether they buy a ticket to any of the former U.S. president's exclusive events. [...]

Government figures reveal the RCMP's security tab for Mr. Bush's first two Canadian speeches this year each ran more than $100,000. Given that he has three more events scheduled next month in Edmonton, Regina and Montreal, this year's cost to taxpayers for his (Bush's) visits is on pace to exceed $500,000.

Security for Mr. Bush's March event in Calgary cost the RCMP $124,000, while a May appearance in Toronto ran up $108,000. In contrast, the security bill to protect Mr. Clinton, who strolled down memory lane on the same stage at the same time as Mr. Bush in Toronto, was far less at $12,000."

Globe & Mail

Why don't we pay him $250,000 to stay away?

Don't you just love socialism for the rich.

He should pay for his own security. Heck, he may even get it for free! I hear Blackwater, one of Dubya's best buds, is looking for work.

Dawg, if it cost fifty cents in deflated US dollars, he's not worth the price.
