Traveling like a president...

What takes 200 hotel rooms, four jets, five helicopters and 35 motorcade vehicles?

A typical presidential trip, according to The Travel Channel, which goes behind the scenes in its special "Travel Like a President," set to air Tuesday.

Andy Singer, the network's general manager, says the show is "designed to give viewers an all-access, unprecedented look at the enormous level of detail and thought that comes with the territory when you are the leader of the free world.”

It looks at famed presidential accommodations, such as the Waldorf in New York, and follows President Obama during a vacation to Hawaii.

Ridiculous excess. The president should not be a king.

I would not wish to have any president visit my community. Especially the sorry little pr!ck currently occupying the booster seat in “ground force one.”

Will the show also include the price tag?

This Wednesday from ~5pm till 10pm, they will be shutting down several miles of I-25 for the debates here in Denver. This is going to cause an unbelievable amount of traffic as that section of I-25 is VERY heavily traveled at that hour.

To really travel like a President, it is not enough to just spend huge amounts of money. You have to inconvenience 10’s of thousands of people, just by being there.

Better to travel like the president than to travel like a U.S. ambassador in a foreign consulate.

This show's going to "go over like a fart in church", with the now 23,000,000-PLUS unemployed and 45,000,000-PLUS on gov't assistance.

It’s a shame they spend all that money and don’t even include a real president.

This guy has an entourage that would make Micheal Jackson or Mike Tyson turn green with envy, and a lot of the members of his posse make Bubbles the Chimp look like a mainstream genius

Oh the list of transgressions is endless, regrettably. Great video, thanks for sharing!
