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.
Ahhh... fossil fuels for me, but not for thee.
Not a scandal ???
Muslims cannot fly on the same jet with a dog?
That’s not the same Reggie Love as the Nutty Professor is it?
The Republicans are the party of the rich.
What is it with the Obamas and ice cream cones anyway? FNC did a piece this morning showing them walking around eating ice cream cones.
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.
Whitey pays an extra 10% to get his tan. You will pay while O’Socialist gives you the finger.
LOL, I was thinking the same thing!!
” The Republicans are the party of the rich.” said Michelle Obama, as she attempted to choke down the last lobster in Bar Harbour, Maine.
This is truly UNREAL!!!!!!!!!!
On top of it, dessert’s not a right, according to MO!
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?
Dog gets his own plane? Hot damn! Life is good!
So what is it? these people dont KNOW how bad this looks? or they dont care?
And why would it matter? Either way, they flew separately, which, IMO was unnecessary.
Is this second jet because the dog is black?,
or a Republican?, or a Hindu/Jew/orChristian?
There’s a reason they’re called limousine liberals.
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.
They don’t care.
Now, shut up and pay.
If Bo the dawg decides to jet out to Vegas for some fun.... it might help the tourist economy and private aviation industry recover from obama’s sneering criticism of “fat cats”
Bo: Cats? Cats? where da fat cats?
Just when did politicians become frigging royalty?!!
If this kind of stuff doesn’t wake up the “independents” nothing will.
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.
Hold Obama’s Ice Cream Cones....
Some Freepers have hinted that’s not all Reggie holds. /mind in gutter
maybe we’ll see the 1st family licking broccoli when someone sells them chocolate covered broccoli
How’d Aunti Zeitune get there?
How’d Auntie Zeitune get there?
I googled ice cream - muslims. Apparently some of them have an issue with ice cream. Sad, but true.

I don't care about the extra nice dishes and real silverware, but I love the big seats and more leg room.
When the president's aide went to Maine, he took the dog with him. Not that big a deal.
Lassie didn’t get this kind of treatment!
Republicans are the party for people rich with their own money.
Democrats are the party for people rich with everybody else's money.
‘First Dog Bo Flown to Maine on Separate Gov’t Jet for Obama Vacation’
I thought she would have been on the same plane as her husband and children.
...going to do it all to destroy the USA.....
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.
It’s part of the political genes. Supposedly FDR dispatched a navy destroyer to pick up his dog when it got left on Kodiak Island during the war.
Photo ops. Look at us,we’re normal people with normal tastes. Its all calculated.
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.
Will i see mention if this on any site mentioning govt. waste or is it too small a figure?
Imagine the outrage and lectures if Bush had wasted $$ like this?
Pray for America

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...
