Before we attend to the poor political judgment of such an extravagant affair during times of economic distress, let us wonder aloud where a poor boy who became governor of Arkansas and president of the United States got such a fortune that he can blow $3,000,000 on a wedding.
The American people did not take up a collection to reward him for his service to them.
Where did the money come from? Who was he really serving during his eight years in office?
These are not polite questions, and they are infrequently asked.
We the taxpayers ponied up $2 million for Secret Service protection for this Versailles-like, let-them-eat-cake spectacle. That brings the total to $5 million.
