THIS is from today's New York Post, hardly a liberal rag:

"Just weeks after Citigroup averted total collapse with a $45 billion shot in the arm of taxpayer cash, the bank jetted its former CEO and his family on one of its corporate jets to a posh Mexican resort for New Year's, The Post has learned. Sandy Weill, 75, hopped aboard the tanking bank's Bombardier BD 700 Global Express on Dec. 26 with his wife, Joan, daughter Jessica, her husband and their children. They flew from Westchester County Airport to the Los Cabos shore region in sunny Baja, according to aviation records and sources familiar with the trip. The family stayed through Jan. 3 at the ultra-expensive One & Only Palmilla in San José del Cabo - where a four-bedroom suite costs $12,000 A NIGHT!!
"The holiday jaunt came the same week that Citigroup - which lost $28.2 billion over the last five quarters and cut 75,000 jobs globally in 2008 - agreed to curtail runaway corporate expenses as part of a deal to get the massive influx of federal money."

Yeah, baby, now that's conservative fiscal responsibility at its best, eh?!
