In a pedestrian observation, Washington Examiner columnist Byron York captured the very essence of today’s bloated federal government … and he did it with one word.
On the same day Vice President Joe Biden announced he would not be running for president, York, a D.C. resident, got caught at an intersection as Biden’s motorcade passed by.
Waiting at stoplight while Biden motorcade passed. 17 vehicles, including motorcycles. Excessive?

Never mind the carbon footprint that worries those who still believe in the climate change hoax, the cost to taxpayers for a 17 vehicle motorcade, day in and day out, has got to be steep.
Speaking of climate change, Biden said Monday it was “the most consequential issue of our time.”
It’s enough to make one wonder if the vice president ever ponders the hypocrisy of statements such as that as he buzzes around town in the midst of a massive motorcade — keeping in mind that presidential motorcades can be more than double the size.
One social media user reminded us that Biden is no different than you and me: “That lunch bucket Joe, just a regular guy.”
Another pointed to President Obama’s motorcade when he visited Jerusalem in 2013. Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
Longest motorcade EVER! (Maybe) POTUS in Jerusalem https://t.co/kiV6E5yUwI

@ByronYork @TheRealBepo He won’t need all the security to protect him from Hillary anymore.

@ByronYork Kind of light-weight for this administration. Still, that´s one sizable carbon middle-finger.
