Joe Biden Runs Up Bill Of $585,000 For Just One Night In Five-star Paris Hotel

The Daily Mail: Paris may be known as the City of Light, but that title certainly doesn’t mean that visitors are light on spending as Vice President Joe Biden’s one day trip cost taxpayers more than half a million dollars.

When Mr Biden and his hefty entourage stayed in Paris for an evening in early February and it cost $585,000.50 for that single night.

The Vice President likely rented out more than 100 rooms in the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand, though they must not have gotten a group discount rate.

The price was reported by The Weekly Standard after they discovered the official contract filing online, showing how much the government paid for the hotel bill.

Meh. I told you Paris wasn't exactly cheap.

However, beautiful architecture we have to look at and visit over there... when you have a little more time than just one night for that.

Still. Great deal you've got, Joe ! Congrats !

Could have been worse. Our taxes appreciate your very honorable effort.

You, Joe Biden... P.O.S.

Funny how the "sequester" didn't effect this trip

You can't take a tour of the White House, but $585,000 for a night in Paris survives the "cuts"? Weird.

That's incredibly close to the amount Rand gave back

Glad to know US royalty put that money too good use, right?

Garan's picture

That's why they tolerate Rand

..because Rand puts money in their pockets.

Maybe Rand should donate the money to a responsible organization.

What are you gonna do? Say something about it? Ha! They'd have you killed. The worst part is, some people think if we're not careful, tyrants will take over America. I say sad because they must have missed the last 50 years.

Mr. Biden, you are grounded. It is time for you to go to your

room and stay there and quit wasting the people's money. I hear the white house is closed to the public, maybe the president has room for you.

Its all much better when its free. Oh yes, no Continental breakfasts lol

I thought RP said there were no free lunches? :P

Pimping ain't easy

Puh-lease, the Emperor in Waiting NEEDS a few dalliances. It's necessary and proper.

Read the article but...

there is no reason WHY Joe was in Yurrup. Remember, the $585k was just for the hotel in Paris..the others in Germany and London were of similar cost. PLUS...the pay of the SS, the flight of AF2...my brain hurts...

Well they will vote of course.

Then they will give lots of money to another attorney who will talk a good game even though we're not supposed to have any attorneys serving in public office in the first place.

And no white house tours

The White House wants us to believe the sequester has people starving. For the cost of Biden staying in Paris one night, we could have paid for 6 months of White House tours.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

-C. S. Lewis

Our government owns our White House. Guests stay for free.

Even the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand has a policy to ensure guests are treated fairly.

    "Find a lower price elsewhere and your first night is free."

"Request White House Tour Tickets Here." Must be reserved 6 months in advance. Supply is limited. "Temporarily" the White House inside & garden tours are by invitation only. Sorry, the 2913 Easter Egg Hunt on the White House lawn is fully booked.

Can the President Sub-Let with His Lease Agreement?

Maybe we CAN make ends meet.

That's a good idea you have.

Not sure. Might be Month-to-Month.

Dolly Madison British Troops Burned the Capitol and the White House in 1814. The Federal City Was Punished in the War of 1812. Something about a lease agreement (King Charter & Royalties)

While some Americans tried desperately to battle the British (regular army), the city of Washington was in chaos. Federal workers tried to rent, buy, and even steal wagons to cart off important documents.

In the executive mansion (not yet known as the White House), the president's wife, Dolley Madison, directed servants to pack up valuable items.

Among the items taken into hiding was a famous Gilbert Stuart portrait of George Washington. Dolley Madison instructed that it had to be taken off the walls and either hidden or destroyed before the British could seize it as a trophy. It was cut out of its frame and hidden in a farmhouse for several weeks. It hangs today in the East Room of the White House.

The Capitol burned. The British army proceeded to Fort Henry, Maryland ("Star Spangled Banner" - Keyes).

$585,000.50: Idiot Joe Biden's One-Night Paris Hotel Tab

This item updates item 'Joe Biden confuses Poland with Portugal '
As it turns out, Idiot 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.

Hotel Intercontinental has a special offer

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.
