Skip to comments.Obama campaign gets more Air Force aircraft
Posted on 03/09/2012 3:00:47 PM PST by Baynative
The U.S. Air Force is pulling nine cargo aircraft from military operations to support President Barrack Obamas stepped-up visits to campaign events.
The five medium-capacity C-130s and four heavyweight C-17s will be used to ferry security vehicles, armored limousines and communications gear into cities ahead of Obamas campaign appearances.
In the months before November, the president is expected to fly into multiple cities per week, and speak at multiple sites per day. On Mar. 8, for example, the president will fly to Richmond, and then drive over to a Rolls-Royce aircraft-parts factory. That evening, hell fly down to Houston, Texas.
His wife, the Vice President and many of his cabinet secretaries are using the Air Forces fleet of VIP aircraft to visit more states as the election season speeds up.

Just wait until after the election! Win/Lose Barry and Moochelle are going to be taking trips every week to poke the American taxpayer in the eye....
Are we, the taxpayers paying for his campaigning?
Even Jean-Luc feels the same way I do...
So. Where is Michelle wanting to go vacation, and how many of her socialist, America-hating liberal friends is she wanting to take with her that requires more planes. Just plain ridiculous.....his “Eric Holder Consituents” should be ashamed....just plain ashamed if you aks me.
I say we give this SOB a Volt and tell him to hit the road NOW! He might have problems getting Chewbacca inside so she can hop the 130.
So AF1 isn’t enough for the lil dictator. This moron just loves having us pay for him. I guess he feels that since he’s black he will get reparations one way or another, except it’s all FOR HIM.
It’s good to be the king.
what a bunch of cr4p!
Thumbs down to the Fraud in the WH!
BIG combat units don’t need that many aircraft to deploy to a war zone for six months.
The House needs to pull the funding on Obama’s travel.
It’s good to be king. Or should that be Emperor?
Is this even legal???
Damn, I hate that man!
Sounds to me like all these so-called heavy hitters exposing his nefarious past has the dude shaking in his boots! /S
Every day he flips them/us the bird, and goes merrily on his way.
Dear Lord ... could there be a more loathsome demon??
In my fury, I missed there were TWO limos on that plane.
Disgusting waste of oxygen...both of them!
The lowlife bass turd is using our tax dollars to go out and lie to the morons who insist on voting for him. Another “dream” from his “father” I guess.
The first election was a baby step. Now whenever he's done he will spend the rest of his life traveling the world on our tab as he goes about punishing America for all the sacrifices and contributions made to the world on behalf of freedom.
Isn’t this sort of shite illegal? How can he blatantly get away with this? This isn’t the People’s business...
Some people are more equal.
Probably those aircraft would`ve been used for getting supplies to the troops in Afghanistan, and for transporting military ballots back to the states.. both of which are dead last on 0bama`s priority list.
If I could make big font I would.
I HATE THIS DISGUSTING DISPLAY OF DESPOTISM! WHY THE HELL IS HE ALLOWED TO USE MILITARY AIRCRAFT FOR HIS CAMPAIGN!???
The almost 100% lack of ANY Republicans SPEAKING OUT STRONGLY makes me want to projectile vomit.
When will this nightmare STOP?
The House appear to be all neutered pantswetting bunny rabbits sucking their thumbs.
Here you go:
The people of America need to jerk this magic negro and his magic wookie by the neck out of office now!
Thank you kindly.
I feel as though I’m going to puke, literally.
can’t raise enough money so he’s going to use tax payer money
There's our problem in a nutshell. There are people who want our vote but those who will stand up for us and say something are few and far between.
So sickening, Red ... our forgotten, neglected, abused troops. There’s got to be a special place in Hell ....
Sickening is right and those Marxist bastards have no problem at all using and abusing our troops anytime.
This is too much from a thoroughly worthless bastard!
I have no problem with this....as long as Obama & all his staff fly in the back of the C-130....sitting on nylon sling seats.
Hang, I say that we taxpayers should even provide free foam earplugs for them! Maybe even box lunches from the mess hall. And an Igloo cooler full of “bug juice”.
Nothing is too good for our political aristocracy! (double entendre intended)
It’s the fault of the Republicans. If they weren’t so determined to nominate a candidate to oppose Obama in November, he wouldn’t need to campaign for re-election.
I get the joke, but don't really think the Republicans are doing squat to oppose Obama.
I guess he finally found a reason to like the military—best travel service around. I can’t believe this country elected this vile fraud, and will likely re-elect him this year. Disgusting.
That being the case, it could be the last election we have to worry about.
We've already seen several examples in 2012 of how the media can create a firestorm to benefit Obama or his agenda--Komen vs. PP, the initial handling of the Obama/Sebelius mandate on birth control and the phony "accommodation," the Fluke dog-and-pony show and the "outrage" whipped up against Rush Limbaugh.
It's only going to be more intense as we closer to November, especially if they see any danger that Obama may lose.
We will continue to have elections for the same reason that Napoleon liked to have plebiscites—to create the illusion of public endorsement. Plus they are good for the media. After this year, if Obama wins, the presidential elections may be more like those in Venezuela, Zimbabwe, or Russia than the elections we have had in the past.
And we thought Clinton “loathed the Miltary”. Sheesh.
OTOH, he’s going to need allies, and guess who won’t be among them.
Wonder how many extra's were allocated to Bush, and if they stood up even one extra squadron, let alone two.
I mean, a radio host called some girl a slut last week!
You have managed to capture the essence of American journalism in just one line. REEEEmarkable.
