First Dog Bo Flown to Maine on Separate Gov't Jet for Obama Vacation
Saturday, July 17, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 07/17/2010 7:22:42 AM PDT by kristinn

Barack Obama had the family dog Bo flown to Maine in a separate government jet for the Obama family's vacation weekend, according to news reports.

Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and the president's personal aide Reggie Love, who chatted with Baldacci.

BTW, Obama's aide Reggie Love gets paid $102,000 per year of taxpayers' money to handle Bo and hold Obama's ice cream cones, among other highly sought after well-paid jobs skills.

It's a #$(@($(@ dog for a weekend! Why not leave the keys to the White House to Biden and tell him where the bag of kibble is? OK, maybe Biden is a bad idea, but how about the head of NASA? They don't seem to be very busy anymore.

0bama has to be the most ‘expensive’ president we’ve ever had. He lives like a damn Hollywood celebrity. Not to mention, his ‘carbon footprint’ probably dwarfs even Algore’s.

As is well known, moslems have a superstition about dogs being satanic, so yes it makes sense that no moslem would want to be on an airplane with a dog...might not make it to a soft landing.

Perfect line on a Sunday show from a pubbie, “Party of the rich? We are not the ones flying dogs to vacation in seperate planes, for over 100,000 for that flight no (David, Bob, Jake, Chris) we aren’t the party of rich.”.

I wonder if the purpose of the flight was to get the dog up there or did the aid take him along?

And why would it matter? Either way, they flew separately, which, IMO was unnecessary.

Obama Has Shot 41 Rounds of Golf as President

http://www.whitehousedossier.com/2010/07/16/obama-played-41-rounds-golf-president/

President Barack Obama has played a remarkable 41 rounds of golf since becoming president, easily outpacing his predecessor and possibly damaging his ability to portray himself in 2012 as a populist advocate of average folks.

With the excursions lasting on average at least five hours, the president has devoted a total of more than 200 hours to golf, not counting time spent on the White House putting green. That’s the equivalent of twenty five eight-hour work days, or five work weeks spent smacking golf balls.

It’s for the staged vacation photo-ops. They don’t give a damn about the dog, and they don’t interact with it except for these P.R. occasions.

Does it matter. The aide could have flown coach, like the little people do. The only time2 I've flown first class has been when the flight was overbooked and they gave me a free upgrade. Even though I've been flying on business, mostly as a military contractor and a few times as military, off and on for 35 years, I can count the number of times that has happened on one hand.

I googled ice cream - muslims. Apparently some of them have an issue with ice cream. Sad, but true.

Does it matter? The aide could have flown coach, like the little people do. The dog could have flown in the cargo bay, like the dogs of the little people. The only times I've flown first class has been when the flight was overbooked and they gave me a free upgrade. Even though I've been flying on business, mostly as a military contractor and a few times as military, off and on for 35 years, I can count the number of times that has happened on one hand. I don't care about the extra nice dishes and real silverware, but I love the big seats and more leg room.

No offense to your post kristinn, but I don't think this is any big deal, nor do I think the headline accurately reflects the content. There are any number of flights that occur in advance of a presidential vacation. The entire entourage doesn't fly on AF1.

When the president's aide went to Maine, he took the dog with him. Not that big a deal.

In 1968 I was working for a small company in Garland, TX. We had an urgent contract deadline to meet. I had subcontractors in both northern and soothern California and also in Connecticut. I planned a trip to the west coast and then to Connecticut. I had never flown nonstop coast to coast, so I thought it would be an excellent idea to save time and take a redeye from LA to New York overnight. I found myself on a fully loaded DC-8, surrounded by hippies. My seatmate had a bandage around his head, probably covering injuries inflicted in some street riot. I was at the Connecticut subcontractor next day, looking forward to a real night’s rest, when I got a phone call from my office instructing me to hot-foot it back to San Francisco ASAP. They had arranged for me to ride first class, gov’s funded of course. So the guy who had never flown coast-to-coast nonstop, got to do it two nights in a row.

He attacks Republicans for supposedly supporting the rich, i.e. the PRODUCERS and those who create real jobs, but he himself is living the very high life, all on the expense of us the taxpayers. But what else do we expect from liberals, they are the biggest hypocrites on the planet.

“BTW, Obama’s aide Reggie Love gets paid $102,000 per year of taxpayers’ money to handle Bo and hold Obama’s ice cream cones, among other highly sought after well-paid jobs skills.”

I’m sure that German-speaking ice cream holders are hard to come by, so his six-figure salary is a supply and demand thing...
