Obama campaign gets more Air Force aircraft
Daily Caller ^ | 3/9/12 | Niel Munro

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 Obama’s 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 Obama’s 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, he’ll fly down to Houston, Texas.

His wife, the Vice President and many of his cabinet secretaries are using the Air Force’s fleet of VIP aircraft to visit more states as the election season speeds up.

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.

BINGO! 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.

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.

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.

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 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.

The Republican establishment is too afraid that the media will call them racists if they aren't nice enough to Obama (who, meanwhile, is treating his opponents with unprecedented incivility which he never gets criticized for).

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.

The Air Force allocated extra aircraft to support President George W. Bush when he was running for re-election in 2004, she added.

Wonder how many extra's were allocated to Bush, and if they stood up even one extra squadron, let alone two.
