Hardly a level playing field

April 18, 2013 

When two boxers, or two wrestlers, are matched to compete against one another, they are first weighed so that one doesn't have the advantage in weight over the other. That, Mr. President, is called a level playing field.

You are flying all over the country every day raising money to defeat the Republicans in the next election. You are using the Republicans' and independents' tax money to defeat them. It's costing us millions of dollars every time you get into that helicopter and Air Force One. We are paying for Secret Service, fuel, people that have to serve them, and the wear and tear of these monsters. Is that what you call a level playing field, Mr. President?
